Lost in Faith, Faith in Lost

Joshua Alston of Newsweek writes that ‘Lost’ is a show about faith.

I concur (though I think you can draw faith parallels and correlations from just about anything–natural theology anyone?).

If you still don’t know how excited I am by this show, catch me online on IM or Facebook, or call me. You’ll see a side of me that few get to.

I'm watching Lost

Nice to be able to say that again after far too long. I’ve missed my weekly dose of WTF.

And highly enjoying being able to live-tweet and IM with East Coast friends (all while trying not to give away any spoilers; it’s a challenge, I tell you!).

Buffy vs. Edward

This is fairly amazing:

In this re-imagined narrative, Edward Cullen from the Twilight Series meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It’s an example of transformative storytelling serving as a pro-feminist visual critique of Edward’s character and generally creepy behavior. Seen through Buffy’s eyes, some of the more sexist gender roles and patriarchal Hollywood themes embedded in the Twilight saga are exposed – in hilarious ways. Ultimately this remix is about more than a decisive showdown between the slayer and the sparkly vampire. It also doubles as a metaphor for the ongoing battle between two opposing visions of gender roles in the 21st century.
