WASHINGTON — I once told a favorite pastor of mine that I liked him because he wasn’t too pious. As soon as the words were out there, I wondered if I should have just kept my mouth shut — I’m not good at that — since he might have found my compliment offensive. After all, [...] The post Christmas joy without piety appeared first on The Moderate Voice.
There's no doubt Emirates is one of the "frilliest" airlines out there, from their onboard bar to onboard shower. They're probably my favorite airline in the world to fly, thanks to the fact that I never get bored on them. Based on the programs they undertake, you sometimes have to wonder if money is even an object for them. Show More Summary

We’re on the second-to-last list from Kissing Candice and this one comes from guitarist Walt, who submits his “Top 5 Favorite Horror Movies”! The list features a couple classics and a couple of films that definitely wouldn’t make my list. However, that’s what’s so great about personal opinions, right? Check out the list and see […]
In keeping with my annual tradition (2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008), this New Year’s Eve I’m reflecting on everything that’s happened this year. In 2014, I AAAed 15 more catas. Our two favorite video games were Night of the Rabbit and the Blackwell series, which came to a satisfying conclusion. Our favorite speedrun was […]
New York gay punk group Slink — composed of Hunx and Punx’s Seth Bogart, SSION’s Cody Critcheloe, and new permanent member Samantha Urbani of Friends — is making the season gay with their new single and fragrance, “Pink Christmas.” It’s ridiculous and amazing and I want it to be my life. The song is about [...]
I don't know about you, but 2014 sure sped by for me. It seems like just yesterday I was putting together my list of best apps of 2013, and here I am writing the next chapter now. But when I went back through my pages of iOS apps I realized that it's...

Today I get to do one of my favorite things: introduce a brand new APW advertiser, Erica Rose Photography. Erica is in the process of relocating to Anchorage Alaska, and shoots locally in Chicago, Vancouver, and Anchorage. But!! (Wait for it!) Because she's just that excited to work with Team Practical, she's offering free travel all over the US for [...]
Before drifting to sleep these past several nights, I've thought about my favorite multiplayer game, WarioWare Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, and how it will almost certainly hold that honor forever. It's been on my mind lately because, like Nic, I associate the holidays with couch-based multiplayer. Show More Summary
Last week, Emily Nokes asked me what my favorite Christmas song was. I said I didn't have a favorite Christmas song. The truth is, Christmas carols drive me a little bit crazy. When it comes to music, I crave novelty; my idea of hell would be listening to a corporate classic rock station for all eternity. Show More Summary
While I can wholeheartedly say that 2014 brought us some incredibly fun and memorable horror films, it also brought some serious dreck to the genre.

I'm happy to answer, but must begin with a methodological preamble.In a revealed preference sense, everyone's "favorite state" almost has to be wherever he resides.

The standing position is my favorite position. Prone is more accurate, and my choice for if I absolutely, positively have to hit something that I have a clear line of sight to or if I’m practicing the basics, but standing is more broadly useful and more fun, too. Show More Summary
I've shared my love of winter weddings many times before, but when Patrick Moyer and Taylor'd Events sent along this snowy gem I remembered why they'll forever be my favorite.
