Where are you living on the margins of society? What have you learned there?

What themes in the journey from Advent through Christmas to Epiphany capture your attention?

How can we ensure that the "mystique" or heart of our faith doesn't degenerate into politics and institutionality?

Who do you think (or hope) the magi were? What does this say about your worldview?

Are the movement dynamics of our community confusing? (IE: Three different charities rather than one leadership structure?)

Organization and leadership are sometimes  necessary to get things done (Ex.: The St. Patrick's Island Occupy Calgary group vs. the Prince's Island one). How can movements include leadership and organization without becoming institutional?

I can actually say "I laughed, I cried" about this one:

Gibberish "English" Rock.

This video features a rock song done by an italian comedy group, that is supposed to sound like it's in english, but it's all gibberish words. I find it fascinating to hear what my language and accent (or at least a southern americanized version of it) sounds like to non-english speakers. It sure sounds like english to me (minus actually communicating any meaning).

Spong Monkeys

I have to admit that I wasn't with it enough to have caught the initial Spong Monkeys internet phenomenon that broke about five years ago. I did, however, see the Quiznos Subs commercials that followed (Best. Commercials. Ever.) Here's the original "We Like the Moon."
