Sunday in Outer Blogness: Countdown to Conference Commentary Edition!
Today my RSS reader was full of open threads and live-blogging of General Conference! While some commentary and especially laughs are already rolling in, experience tells me that if anything interesting at all gets said at conference, the awesome/exciting conference commentary will be next week‘s SiOB. (The most exciting things so far have been that some women attended satellite sessions of priesthood, plus another predictable PR blunder from the CoJCoL-dS.) And if nothing interesting gets said, then next week’s SiOB will be back to normal. But for today we can sit back and enjoy a relaxing Sunday.
Some redditors showed how the proofs of the Book of Mormon also prove the truthfulness of Harry Potter. But — being a good atheist and everything — I’m one step ahead of them!! Yesterday, I wrote yet another scathing critical analysis of Harry Potter! (Yes, it’s a sickness I know, but this is the last one. I hope…)
Remember how the Mormons did that ad campaign about how normal Mormons are? Well, guess who else’s reputation has dropped so low that they’re making ads to try to convince people they’re normal: the Republicans! I think this kind of marketing is actually kind of counter-productive.
(Also Brett Cottrell has a new book out — I need to get more details because he’s calling it a “debut novel” — and it sounds very similar to his earlier book — so I’m guessing he re-worked after finding a publisher.)
Have a great Sunday!
