I'm not really sure how those two things tie together. But I can't wait to find out. Check out the trailer here (click on "trailer" up at the top).

Beautifully telling quote: "The lyrical formula is quite simple, right? It’s man has problem, man finds Jesus, Jesus fixes problem. Repeat."

• Several years ago I read about the Black Bible Chronicles, a "hip and holy" version of the Bible written for the streets of the South Bronx. (Actual quote: "Now when the Almighty was first down with His program, He made the heavens and the earth.").

I'm in line already.

Seen on our sign (before I was in charge of changing it!)

"Adult Christmas Musical Tonight"

If you have satelite TV that was funny if not you just think I'm stupid.
