Emergent Liberal Community

There’s an easy solution to the controversy over evangelical churches hosting Halo Nights:

Left Behind: Eternal Forces

Teens can get their kill on in a Christian way. Everyone wins except Satan! Unless you play as the Satanic forces. Slight bug there…

More Seriously, Zeitlin’s actual point in the above-linked commentary was that there is a […]

An Absolution Revolution

is my newest blog find, discovered amidst the mixed bag that is the resistance tag at Technorati. First, it too links to the ParEcon page. Second, here’s an excerpt from its about page:

A voice crying in the postmodern wilderness amidst the cacophony of bells, buzzers, whistles, flashing lights, flash videos, animated images, billboards, pop-up […]

Deposed Dictator Blogging

My alternative would be capitalism with limits — allow people to seek profits, but under serious guidelines and with tremendous, progressive taxation. A […]

Fuko, we used to call him

Architecture + Morality has a good post from a bit back titled: The Panopticon of Celebrity: The Image of the City in the Age of Luxury Condominium Towers. Very impressive title, as it references both Bentham/Foucault and Kevin Lynch, all of whom I don’t fully understand; well played.

One criticism though (and I only point […]
