Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the Asylum; Not a felon was stirring – Well, except Tweedledum. The straightjackets were tightened up on the felons with care; With hope that in the morning, they’d all still be there. The guards all wished they were home in their beds; And took bets on which […]
Some friends and I have been riffing on the children of Ya’akov [Jacob] and the Justice League, a concept originally thought up by Rabbi Yossie Bloch. What twelve leaguers most fit the attributes given the brothers in the Torah [Bible] and assorted commentaries? Rabbi Josh Yutter gave this NKJV version of the blessings that Ya’akov […]
A friend of mine is in the middle of a Title Search for a house and came across this gem in the old Deed: If you don’t see it, it’s A Covenant to not sell any lots of “Lordship Manor” to Hebrews… aka Jews. Nice.
Long, Non-Comic Releated, Political and Religious Post – Because Hey, The Site’s Dead Anyway, Right?
I’m still working on new material for 2012, and hope to have the site back up and running smoothly. However, I want to take a minute to say something. I’m keeping it behind the “more” break, so that those who don’t want to deal with it don’t have to. Everyone else, see you there.
The below is the text from the speech I wrote for my son’s Brit Meelah (circumcision). I promise to get back to the funny soon. Thank you everyone for your support and kindness.
There is a concept in Judaism called “Hakarat Hatov”. Generally translated as “recognizing the good”, it means to appreciate the things others have given for you. It is more than merely saying thank you, but to have an internal as well as external acknowledgment of the positive impact others have had on you. It is […]
Please note: This was originally posted on Facebook, Tuesday morning 1/19 ——– I’ve been trying to write this all morning. The problem is that I have too many things I want to say, and they’re all trying to rush out at once. Those who know me know that this is symptomatic of my personality. It’s […]
I’m writing this on Friday, as I will likely not be online at all today. Today is the eve of Yom Kippur and I’ve much to do. called the Day of Atonement, it is the day my people believe we are judged for our actions in the past year. I know not everyone shares my […]
As today is Tisha B;av, the day of th destruction of both the First and Second Temple, I don’t think a WWTT post is approopriate. I’m actually working on a book aboout the observance of the day. Funny tomorrow.
I’m actually writing this on the 7th. As Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish Year is on the 9th (well, sundown on the 8th), I’m not actually online. Lately I’ve been doing my posts in advance, so you guys can still enjoy the blog even when there’s a Jewish holiday. There won’t be […]
Are any of you familiar with the legend of the Golem? A creature made of earth, brought to life by Jewish mysticism. Golems are mindless automatons, with a tendency to turn on their masters. In many versions, it has the Hebrew word for “truth” written on it’s forhead. Golems show up a few times in […]
Like I mentioned in this morning’s post, I’m going to be offline for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and wanted to wish you all a Happy and a Healthy New Year. It’s customary at this time of year to ask forgiveness of anyone one may have wronged, even slightly or by accident. This site […]
There won’t be a post tomorrow as I will be observing Tisha B’av.
I went to the MoCCA Artfest today. Took my six-year old and had a great time. Met a lot of comic creators I’ve admired for some time and got to bond with my daughter. She almost fainted over a Dean Tripp Supergirl print, which just goes to show she has taste. She was also ticled […]
I love this title. Seriously, why don’t we get titles like this anymore? Moving on to the actual story, in Showcase #64 “the Ghost of Ace Chance”, The Spectre is weakened and decides to go around the world, absorbing “good” radiation. It takes him to interesting places. Okay, am I the only one seeing the […]
Not the ancient wonder of the world, but the supervillian. Old Nova bad guy, also fought the FF when Wolfman wrote it (in a storyline that basically wrapped the series “Nova” volume 1 up). His origin? He’s the Egyptian Magician Moses/Moshe “pwned”. I don’t know why that struck me as worth noting, but it did […]
This time I paid a visit to the nice folks at “Suspension of Disbelief”. The topic was the recent issue of Action Comics featuring Superman going to someone’s house for Friday Night Shabbos dinner. Really.
