saturday morning coffee

Every Saturday morning I make a full pot of coffee, a little more than usual.

Most weekday mornings find me nursing my first cup as I get ready and then filling up a to-go mug on the way to work.

But Saturdays are different.

On Saturdays I find myself catching up on articles, videos, or other interesting Internet finds. I’ll share my best finds with you here.

Husbands of Instagram

  • “Behind every cute girl on Instagram is a guy like me…and a brick wall.”
  • “I’m basically a human selfie stick.”
  • “We take so long to get anywhere…because we’re taking pictures of our feet.”

This might be the best YouTube video I’ve seen all year. HILARIOUS.

 

Unfollow: How a Prized Daughter of the Westboro Baptist Church Came to Question its Beliefs.

megan

I’ve written about Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church before. They are a tragic but fascinating family and are not true representatives of orthodox Christianity. In his 10,000 word essay in the New Yorker, Adrian Chen presents a compelling profile of one of Phelps granddaughters, Megan, who went from the church’s social media darling and PR whiz kid to questioning her oppressive upbringing and eventually leaving the church (although I would substitute the word “cult” for “church”).

Chen’s article is fascinating because he explores the role Twitter had in allowing Megan to first question what she previously never had. As Megan was defending the church’s harsh stances on Twitter, she began to build genuine friendships with people who helped and challenged her. (See: What the Church Can Learn From Facebook)

Hello from the Motherside – Adele Parody on Parenting Struggle

This video is awesome for a lot of reasons, but what you might not know is the creator, Emily Mills, lives in my hometown of Waco, TX and created an amazing ministry for women in the sex industry called Jesus Said Love.

 

You Ain’t No Muslim, Bruv

Two days after a knife attack in a London subway station left one man seriously injured and prompted a terrorism investigation, Prime Minister David Cameron praised the reaction of one bystander, who told the attacker, “You ain’t no Muslim, bruv.”

The hashtag #YouAintNoMuslimBruv took off on Twitter as Muslims all over the world condemned radical actions like this. Just like Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church don’t accurately represent Christianity, radical people like the one behind this knife attack do not accurately represent Islam. (See: An Open Letter to American Muslims from a Christian Pastor)

Homemade Bacon Jam…because bacon.

You know that Mariah Carey Christmas song every woman knows by heart? “All I Want for Christmas is You“?

THIS IS WHAT SHE’S SINGING ABOUT.

There’s also coffee and bourbon in it. Yum.

 

Hobbit Houses are a Thing in Real Life (and my wife wants us to live in one, for real).

hobbit hole

If you’re a Lord of the Rings fan, this one’s for you. If it’s not for you, no worries. It’s a smart people thing. Ask your boss about it on Monday.

Seriously, though. I showed Hayley. We might have one of these in the backyard ready for spring time.

Help.

 

 

50 Famous Misquotations…and What was Actually Said

You know those absurd Abraham Lincoln quotes that make the rounds on Facebook? These are better, and will surprise you.

 

Greg Popovich Was Actually Not a Jerk

Pop does it. Belichick does it. I don’t get it.

I’ve never liked the way some coaches treat the media. Maybe it’s because my dad’s in the media and has been unfairly, publicly yelled at by coaches, even though he was just doing his job – better than the coaches I might add.

But once broadcaster Craig Sager returned to his rightful place reporting courtside, Popovich gave him a playfully warm welcome. Sager has been battling leukemia for the last several years and Popovich reportedly checked in on him regularly during treatment.

In a world that glorifies bad news, let’s celebrate the good.

Happy Saturday!

JJ Watt’s social media advice to high school athletes

watt

“Read each tweet about 95 times before sending it. Look at every Instagram post about 95 times before you send it. A reputation takes years and years and years to build, and it takes one press of a button to ruin. So don’t let that happen to you. Just be very smart about it.”

The Freedom Project

This is incredible, a program that helps convicts redesign their crude prison tattoos into beautiful works of art. This gives them better chances to heal, obtain and secure a job, and transition back into society upon their release. Beautiful.
