The Best Entertainer of All time: Michael Jackson

I still can't believe he's gone, but I wanted to post his You Rock My World music video because this is one of his underrated videos when it comes to dancing. Check it out here (unfortunately, youtube won't allow me to embed the video).

Cool bathroom faucet

I went to use the bathroom at a bar today, went to wash my hands and I noticed this nice faucet. If you're wondering, I did wash my hands before taking this picture.

Today I visited my friend's church Redeemer Presbyterian, which is on 68th Street and Lexington. The church is doing a series of sermons about the life of David, and they had a guest pastor today who was giving the sermon. The message comes from 1 Samuel 16:1-13, and it's about God commissioning Samuel to anoint one of Jesse's sons as King. The significance of that scripture is that out of Jesse's 8 sons, David was the least likely, in appearance, to be king. His brothers were bigger than him, and they had the stature of a person you'd want to protect you. However, when the sons were presented before Samuel, God let him know that it wasn't any of the older 7, but that David was the one. The message was about how God seeks our heart and not our outward appearance, and about the importance of character.

The pastor then spoke about how when you're in a relationship with someone for awhile, your characteristics starts to rub off on one another. He acknowledged that he's from Georgia, but speaks with a mid-western accent. And that's attributed to being married to a woman for 15+ years who's from St. Louis, Missouri. He ended with saying how maybe the strategy of Christians reaching their goal (being more Christlike) should be repositioned. Maybe the focus shouldn't be directly on being like Jesus, but more so being with Jesus. Because if we're in a relationship with Him, His character will rub off onto us.

Top Chef: Masters

Last night was my first time ever watching Top Chef, and I have gained a whole new respect for chefs. I've always respected the process of food being made, especially the way my family throws down in the kitchen. But the creativity and care that I saw the chefs put into their food was pretty cool to see. It made me think, are the most creative professions, those that directly appeal to one of our five senses?

Leroy Smith: The Michael Jordan of Motivating Michael Jordan

This campaign done (I think) by W+K is hilarious. Leroy Smith (Charlie Murphy) claims to be the person that beat out Michael Jordan for the last spot on the Laney High School Varsity Basketball team; and Smith says that motivated Mike to be the best basketball player of all time...Now he's bringing the motivation to you, here.
