We don’t always understand why things happen the way they do, but Jesus does. Trust Him, because His ways are better than our ways.
Just a guy finding his place in the world.
Summer can’t go by quick enough. I am counting down the days until I see my friends and when I’m finally back in Martin!
I’m in love with Coldplays new sound!
This night just got so much better!
Awesome night with the guys! #MillionReasons #707 @redrobinburgers
I love UTM because all the amazing people I have met and the great memories I have made. I love all of you guys so much!
I miss being in Panama City with these people so much. I am so thankful to have been able to spend my spring break serving with them!
Another great photo from this weekend!
Piano time before Noonday!
The three amigos!
During a panel at Denver Comic Con last year, a young woman contending with bullies in her school asked wilwheaton if he’d ever been called a ‘nerd’ when he was a kid. There is absolutely nothing awesome about bullying, but Wil’s heartfelt response with words of support and advice was so resoundingly awesome that we simultaneously grabbed a tissue, applauded and whooped for joy. If you are or have ever been bullied for simply being yourself, please watch this.
But wait, there’s more. When this video recently surfaced on Reddit, both of the girl’s parents chimed in to thank Wil and provide an update on how their daughter is doing now. Click here for their follow up and a transcript of this video.
This is why Will Wheaton is such an amazing person
I will admit it, I have now watched Frozen seven times, and every time I have laughed and cried. I think one of the reasons I love it so much is because the story of Anna’s love for Elsa reminds me of the story of God’s love for us. (Be forewarned, there are some mega-spoilers ahead!)
Progress is being made on Pacman! Thanks @bmcr1128 for the graphics!
DARWISH VS. KANYE
What happens when one of hip hop’s greatest and some silly little Indian kid from Georgia go head to head in an email/IM battle?
My little cousin Darwish, brother of Harris (whom someone of you may know from my standup) is quickly catching up to Harris in terms of ridiculousness. Last week, he finally discovered Kanye West’s music and went nuts. He started a firing off a ton of IMs:
Dar: Kanye West is ridiculous
Dar: HAVE YOU EVER HEARD AMAZING???
Dar: IT REALLY IS AMAZING
Aziz: Yeah, he’s great right?
Dar: when he goes around bragging
Dar: now I know why
Dar: JUST WOW
10 minutes later…
Dar: aziz I think this is like the 10th time ive listened to amazing in a row
Dar: i was just like browsing and I found it it
Dar: and boom! my head was just auto bobbing
Aziz: go download Flashing Lights, that’s probably my favorite Kanye song
Dar: who’s someone else good?
Aziz: You ever listened to any Wu Tang?
Dar: no but i’ve heard of him
Dar: he raps a lot about karate right?
Kanye knows of Harris and Darwish through my standup so I emailed him Darwish’s IMs.
woooow! new fans yeeeessss!!!! more people that don’t hate me
BUT 10 minutes late I received this from Darwish:
Dar: FLASHING LIGHTS
Dar; is straight rip off from a NeYo song
Aziz: kanye stole it??
Dar: uh… yeah
Dar: Listen to “Miss Independent” by NeYo
Dar: wats kanyes email?
Aziz: what you want to email him?
Dar: idk its pretty messed up
Aziz: i’ll email him for you
I email Kanye :
Uh oh. You may have spoken to soon. I told him to get “Flashing Lights” and now he’s upset, he’s ACCUSING YOU OF JACKING BEATS!!! Do you care to respond???”
nooooooooooooooo! that song came out afterwards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I forwarded the response to Darwish:
Aziz: I think you owe Mr. West an apology!
Dar: oh tell him his song was better anyways and ask if he likes Akon
Official Goal for 2009 - Get Darwish, Harris, and Kanye in the same room together. That would be the photo to top all photos.
