What If The Three Wise Men Were Ninja Wizards Sent To Save Jesus, Mary and Joseph?

In the action-packed fantasy novel The Arimathean, the three wise men and Joseph of Arimathea are ninja wizards, part of a secret society of warriors of the supernatural, who are entrusted to protect Joseph and Mary on the road to Bethlehem as King Herod and a cadre of demons led by Satan attempt to kill them before Jesus can be born!

Sierra, I’m sorry. Call me several times burned and now shy, but I must reject your offer of friendship. Unfortunately, the same goes for you, Pat and Carole, and you, Ashlee, and, sadly, Stephanie and Katrina as well. And Gaston, don’t even go there. Now, I understand, you’ve tried contacting me via facebook friend requests, message requests and e-mail a number of times.

Today, On St. Hulk's Day, I'd Like To Introduce You To The Many Sean Learys

Today, I’m going to write about a brilliant creator and comedian. Someone who has made a mark on the field of comedy and the arts. Someone who is continuing to innovate and gain recognition and stardom on the national stage. Of course, I’m talking about Sean Leary. That’s right, Sean Leary. Not me, Sean Leary. This Sean Leary. The other Sean Leary. Well, one of the other Sean Learys. There are actually a few of us. And this week, I was once more reminded of that.

From 'Tiger King' To 'Last Dance' To 'Cobra Kai' To 'Social Dilemma,' Netflix Has Nailed The Covid Zeitgeist

In an uncanny way, it’s mirrored the attitudes and zeitgeist of society at that time, especially over the past year during the time of covid. Certainly, some of it can be chalked up to unconscious needs and preferences being manifested in viewing choices — of people being attracted to certain programs at certain times and them becoming popular because the vast majority of us are feeling a certain thing at... Read More
