Bishops Popping Up Everywhere. A pair of bishops have a unique approach to opening the door to their youth. Here’s a fun little YouTube video by Bishop Mike and the MDB Community’s very own Ken Craig.
With their video at 1,828 hits as of this writing, it’s clear the door is open. Watch the video at Not From the Pulpit.
Poultrygeist. If you’ve followed MDB very much at all, you’ve seen some of the fine work of cinematographer Rod Santiano. In a recent website overhaul, Rod recently came across one of his earliest surviving pieces in his body of work.
See the origins of this creative fellow in the budding stages of his career by watching Poultrygeist (but don’t watch it too close to bedtime) (or just before lunchtime) (especially if you’re thinking KFC).
Mouse Hunt. One of the less glamorous duties that sometimes falls to dads is rodent warrior. This is especially true if your house is close to a river.
MDB Community member Tucker Dansie recounts some of his experiences reliving his own version of the adventures in the movie “Mouse Hunt” in A Visit from Mickey Mouse.
Spiritual Movie. In this case, “spiritual” movie means both a movie that will move you spiritually and a movie that is without a physical body. In LDS Media Talk, Larry Richman describes how “Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration” is being made available to anyone online (including in HD) or for download. As such, it isn’t being delivered via DVD (remember those copies of the Ensign that wouldn’t bend?).
I remember less than a decade ago, we did a run of our first Liken movie on VHS as well as DVD (still have plenty of those old VHS movies in a warehouse). Now DVDs are starting to lose their grip. The more things change… Read (and while you’re there, download) the First Full-Length LDS Church Movie Downloadable.
Book of Mormon on Broadway. Sneaking in a trio here. First up is Ken Jennings. It isn’t really a blog, but it is an opinion piece written by Mr. Jeopardy himself on the Book of Mormon, a new musical on Broadway that takes a comic stab at our faith. Read Ken Jennings Takes on Broadway.
Roger Hansen also took at look at this subject in a recent post on his site, Tired Road Warrior, Can We Mormons Take a Punch?
And finally, some obscure director of a series of children’s movies takes a look at a faint tie he has to the show. Not exactly the stuff dreams are made of, but still. Read Liken’s Brush with the Great White Way.
