A new spin on comparative religion

SO, in my last blog (almost a month ago… yeah, sorry about that) I spoke briefly about my new job at Patheos. Background – Patheos is a comparative religion website with a fantastic interface. It is a fabulous resource for anyone who is studying religion, wanting to know more about their own traditions, or has questions that have plagued them for years. The site launched on May 5 and it has been SO exciting! We have had some great coverage on the launch. See our Time.com article here. Leo and Cathie (the......

New Job!

I started a new job today at www.patheos.com. It is a comparative religion website with a social interaction aspect. I highly recommend checking this site out. It hasn’t fully launched yet (look for the main launch on May 5th) but it is super cool. The Judaism gateway needs some work so go to the contact us button if you are interested in being a contributor. I don’t have too much to say about it yet but I will keep you updated. (Come on, today is only my first day!)...

Kids are funny

Sorry that it’s been a long time… life got REALLY busy! Okay so, I have these awesome friends. They live down the street and their daughters go to ballet at BNC. Really fun and sweet family. I will give them fake names to protect their anonymity (but frankly, if you know me or BNC, you will see through my ruse). So Phad and Sen have 4 little girls. They are 8, 6, 4, and almost 2. Really smart and cute kids. So I knew the 4 year old (we will call her…......

The State of the Nation(‘s arts writers)

Okay. I get the economy is bad… trust me, I REALLY get it! But there has been this disturbing trend of laying off arts reviewers from major newspapers. The LA Times has a section for Movie, TV, and Music reviews… no dance. Very little about dance on their online site. The Village Voice in NYC? Last I heard Deborah Jowitt, the dance critic, was laid off from the periodical. I hear she is still writing dance for them (she was a biographer of Jerome Robbins) but I don’t think she is full......

The Twitter Revolution

Well, it has officially happened. Twitter has taken over the world. In the past week, I have had 10 friends join twitter who were anti-tweet before. Why the change? Why now? The Denver Post ran an article in the Sunday A&E section about Twitter – http://www.denverpost.com/entertainment/ci_11899588And on March 3rd they ran this Twitter article – http://www.denverpost.com/entertainment/ci_11826126Two articles about Twitter in less than two weeks!!!! Clearly, the press is jumping all over twitter and as it comes out that John Mayer is tweeting nasty about Jennifer Aniston during a concert or Shaq clearly......

G-d’s Grand Gestures

Or should I say Grand… like Grand Pas or Grand Pas d’action… meaning big or large step. A Grand Pas d’action is a large step that contributes to the story being told. I believe in G-d’s Grand Gestures, the Grand Pas d’action of G-d, only because I have first hand experience in them. They come at the crappiest times, putting me in the crappiest positions, and usually with crappy consequences. But the beauty of these, shall we call them, G3s is that there is always something better on the other side. Not......

Basil Rathbone… my hero

Okay, so I posted in February how I am in love with Sherlock Holmes and recently ordered some old DVDs (Rathbone and Bruce from the 40’s and Jeremy Brett from the 80’s). Well, I got them… finally! 🙂 As luck would have it, my schedule didn’t allow a Sherlock Holmes weekend and there were technical difficulties… (I need another surge protector for my living room tv. The Comcast guy didn’t tell me he unplugged my dvd player to plug in the cable box, grrrr.) BUT I have snuck a few episodes in......

BIRTHDAY MONTH!!!

Okay! I think that a birthday is more than just a day. I like to celebrate a birthday month. Not for presents or anything but it just gives me a reason to be excited all month. So my birthday is March 19… that is 19 full days of joy (you can still celebrate afterwards but you know that the momentum lags a bit after a few days). But a birthday is also like a new beginning, a new year for your soul/body/mind. Isn’t it interesting, as Jews we give ourselves so many......

Why I feed my addiction to Facebook and how it made me better at my job.

Okay, I don’t have an addictive personality BUT I am totally easy prey when it comes to social networking. I don’t know why. I never got addicted to smoking or drinking or anything… except social networking. I mean to the point where I check it on my phone at night in bed and tweet “Good morning, Tweeps” in the morning. On the surface, you may think that seems sick but it gets worse. I manage accounts all over the social networking world for various groups that I represent. That means that more......
