Shannon today is presently clean-shaven – this post author (Orin) can only assume this is a result of some unfortunate lawn mower accident, due to inadequate training and experience. I mean, really, have you seen his yard?
As a public service, we are offering you, faithful Oddwalkia, a chance to weigh in – what should Shannon’s next facial hair project be? We have set up an OddPoll in the blog sidebar, just a little ways down. Your options are:
Or, of course something else. If you pick “other” then come back up to this post, and comment as to what you’d like to see. If you’re seeing this at facebook or elsewhere, head over here to the Oddblog to vote and leave your comments! The Oddpoll is open for a week, so happy voting!
Oh, and there’s no guarantee that Shannon will actually go along with the results of the poll. We do, however, aim to please…
What’s the crossclap you ask? When hoards of folks clap along to songs in the shape of a cross, of course. Recently, on twitter, Matt Maher himself declared war on the cross clap, and started a discussion on its merits, demerits, and the shapes those of other faiths might clap in.
Where do you stand? Follow the discussion on twitter by searching for either #endthecrossclap or #savethecrossclap, and to let us know, check out the poll in the Oddblog sidebar.
Where do we stand? Well, we tweeted this: “Where would Oddwalk be without the crossclap? Where wouldn’t we be? #savethecrossclap (or, #endthecrossclap – either way.)”
So, today is the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, and we’ve put up a new poll in the sidebar of the blog – which set of mysteries is your favorite? We understand that it may change day to day, moment to moment, but if you had to pick one, which would it be? If you want to give a longer answer, vote first, then leave us a comment in this post. The poll is open for a week. Happy voting, happy praying!
In honor of today’s lesser-known marian feast, down there, in the sidebar, vote on your favorite devotional title for Mary! If you pick the “other” answer, leave your favorite title in the comments of this post. Happy voting (for the next week or so)!
Yeah, we’re more-or-less geeks when it comes to this most sacred time of year – we like to pray with the Church, pray often, and pray well. These unique liturgies are all beautiful, and devotions like the Stations of the Cross add to the solemnity and spirituality of the time.
We probably each have our favorites, even if it’s sometimes hard to choose. We have a new OddPoll, in the sidebar, just scroll down a ways, to see which is your favorite. We’re only letting you vote for one (!) and you have until next Friday (during Easter week) to decide. If you feel compelled to explain why, please do so – in the comments of this post.
May the next few days for everyone be holy, and may we all enter into Christ’s paschal mystery with sincerity, attention, presence, and ultimately joy.
While we continue to migrate the old site over here to the blog, we thought we’d throw up a new poll. Hopefully it drives some of you RSS and Twitter followers over here to take a look. It’s in the sidebar, on the left, about halfway down the page. It is a deeply philosophical question, one that has been divisive through the ages, and one that demands your input!
You do have until the end of the month, if you find the question requires some thought. Take your time, but do vote at some point!
The WordPress theme Ahimsa with lots of tweaks if you’re curious. Let us know what you think in the comments, or better yet, in the new OddPoll over in the sidebar, active until the end of the month. Voting has never been so much fun, so very easy, or so terribly pointless!
Hi all – we’ve updated the OddBlog’s look again, revisiting a theme from a couple years ago, but tweaking it a bit. All the content is still the same, just a fresh new face to look upon.
We’ve added a poll to the sidebar on the right, please vote on the new look! You have about a week to decide (we know it’s a tough choice that will require much contemplation, perhaps even hour upon hour of prayer).
We’ve gotten a number of entertaining reactions to yesterday’s April Fool’s Announcement that Oddwalk was breaking up. Here’s a sampling:
Nice April Fools blog. I went to your site thinking “I wonder if they got a joke up?” (Ricky)
Stealthy. (Ricky again)
It says on your facebook profile that you guys are breaking up… for real?
What’s up with that? (Paul)
I have to go know, the sting of the tears is too much. (Sean)
okay–you got me on that one–thanks for the laugh!! (Jared)
Uhhh… you guys like…. um stink (or substitute harsher, stronger word). You got me… (Paul again)
ODDWALK breaking up…and Shannon is cheering for the Cubs (Roberto el Birdo)
Is there anything that photoshop cannot do?!? (Orin’s wife, Erin H)
I am now a professional golfer on Wii sports, which is pretty good considering I don’t play all that often. (Ricky again, though I’m not so sure this comment is specifically about our April Fools joke)
Perhaps the funniest remark though came from our friend Gene
of Apex Ministries
it was great working with you guys.
sad to see you go. (who is the yoko of Oddwalks?)
With such inspiration, we announce a new OddPoll:
Who is/was/will be the “Yoko” of Oddwalk?
-The Oddwalk Keytar
You can only select one answer, and have a week to mull it over. As always, you can find the OddPoll over in the side bar. Good luck, and happy voting!
We’ve added a new poll for the next week or so, in the sidebar, just below our pictures:
What Lenten Practice Will You Participate In This Year?
- Giving Something Up
- Reading More Scripture
- Praying More
- Something Else
You may select more than one item.
