Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

Some thoughts…

I’m sitting here enjoying the gray dusk as it settles over Colorado’s first real snow of the season.  Just came across an old story idea I had actually forgotten I had.  I had even outlined the whole plot all the way up to the denouement, which is pretty good for me. I’m not very good with endings, though. 

Speaking of endings, Stephen King likes Frank Darabont’s tweaked ending to The Mist.  Not that this is a real surprise; Darabont handles King’s material better than most…with exception perhaps to William Goldman, but I know that’s debatable. 

“1-18-08” finally has a title (Cloverfield), and a new trailer.  It’s interesting to watch a film develop between ads—watch the teaser first, then notice how much more real the effects artists have rendered the Statue of Liberty’s head in the second trailer.

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about Paul the Apostle in Athens.  I started reading up on it, and my study has changed most of my preconceptions about the entire episode.  I want to try and get some thoughts down on that tonight. 

And finally—The word “evangelism” seems to taste more sour to me with each passing month.  I just feel like it makes me out to be some programmed robot out to convert despicable dissidents, and that just doesn’t paint a picture of Jesus Christ for me. 

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
