Podcasts are to Blame

I know I've been MIA for a while. Several of you have made that clear with comments like, "Although you don't read my blog anymore...." or "You're too good to read my blog anymore...", let me tell you: I still read your blogs. All of them. I just don't comment much on your blogs anymore. Truthfully, I like being quite for a little while. Sometimes I talk to much, and lately, I haven't had much to say that is of any importance, so I'm just using this time to read and reflect on what you all have to say.

One thing that I have been doing lately deals with podcasts. I've become addicted. I'll subscribe to several new ones each day, and then watch and unsubscribe and delete depending on whether or not I like them. A few that I will comment on:

1 Year Daily Audio Bible: An incredible podcast. This one was started at the beginning of this year by a producer here in Nashville. He simply reads a passage from the OT, the NT, Psalms, and Proverbs every day. They average about 20 minutes in length, but it's great. I can listen at work or anywhere on my iPod. And if you don't have an iPod, just download iTunes (it's free!) and you can save it to your computer or on a CD and listen in your car.

Ask a Ninja: This one is very silly. All of the episodes I've seen so far at least make me giggle. If any of you guys play Xbox live, at least watch Question 5: "Ninja Skills." I really don't know where this guy came up with this idea for a podcast. (This is a video podcast, so you have to either have an iPod video, or just watch them on your computer.)

Vintage Toon Cast: One of my favorites! Very old cartoons available for free download. Things like some of the old Merrie Melodies with Bugs and Elmer Fudd, Felix the Cat, and some other ones that I'm not so familiar with. It is rated Explicit, but that's because of "cartoon violence." I guess parents are freaking out about their children seeing Bugs be hit in the head by an anvil or something.....

And then, of course, Homestar Runner. You all must check him out at . There are two podcasts that you can find on iTunes, one is homestar runner shorts, the other is Strong Bad e-mails. My favorite (an archive from the website that you can't find on iTunes is the Fluffy Puff Commercial that you can find under "shorts."

Guess that's all of my useless information for now.

I will be sure to catch 1 Year Daily Audio Bible. What better way to make sure I have some Bible study time than to do it when things are quiet at work or in the car.

Thanks for the recommendations.
