Story Time: Reign meets WDDIJ

Story Time: Reign meets WDDIJ

It feels like a life time has passed, but it’s only been 2 years. Geek Illuminati was barely 2 months old and I was just discovering my social media voice. I had just participated in my first pod cast, and I have to admit I was feeling pretty damned pumped about it… but I wasn’t ready to take a full step out of my shell. Not long after, there it was: the post that would invariably change my life forever. The Ruthless Wonder posted an open invitation to join him here at WDDIJ. It took e about a week to muster up Read more »

And now… at the end of the hour

And now… at the end of the hour

This week we debuted a brand new podcast with a livestream. We said goodbye to one of the founders. We tackled coons, and hoteps. As well as assault, and the HIV & AIDS treatment drug Truvada.     I skipped a couple lines to let that sink in. When this started I literally just wanted to take my usual facebook ranting to a website. I figured it would be like the old days of my Xanga page. Now, now I deal with potential sponsors, have production meetings, worry about our average listening and reading time, and look for brand expansion. Read more »

Thank you Dr. King

Thank you Dr. King

On this day we are reminded about the price of revolution. The effect of going against the powers that hold sway over the majority of the life above our heads. The very instruments of power. And so today, we at Words Don’t Do It Justice, The Wrath of Ruthless, 9 to 5 gamer, Imperial Dreams Productions, and 314 Publishing, honor The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. not as the sanitized pacifist the traditional media would have you believe he was, but as the Revolutionary pushing back against the tide of injustice in every form that he actually was. Thank Read more »

Story Time: New Beginnings

Story Time: New Beginnings

Months ago, I was in a very unpleasant place. I was living in a hotel after waking up alone to find the kitchen on fire. My father was getting sicker. I had lost hope and couldn’t see anything as positive, or good for myself because so much had fallen apart. One night, with my hotel suite full of friends, all I could do was lay in the dark and cry. Then he came in the room, laid next to me, and offered his company. I don’t remember him saying much; whether I asked or if he offered, but he held Read more »

What is a Steward in today’s church? 

What is a Steward in today’s church? 

Stewardship. It’s not a simple topic, and yet at the same time it is deceptively simple. First to understand stewardship we need to understand community. The book of Acts, according to its author, demonstrates the true meaning of community in the desirable form of common union. (Acts 2:44-45) This concept is essentially where all who are part of the community gave all they had and pooled their several resources. This model is the ideal and works when all who are in the community participate. Not works best but works at all. No exceptions. Because if a portion abstain, there will be Read more »

The Letter Series: Dear Racists, Bigots, and all other Hate-filled power players of society

I’ve been in a weird place this week. If you’ve been following me these last few weeks, I’ve been getting my spiritual house in order; listening to gurus and yogis, mostly Sadhguru with sprinkles of other teachers. I’m taking control of my bliss and choosing my happiness making sure that I focus on the positive experiences I’m having and not so much on the negative influences of the world. Then I listened to this, and now I have questions. You see, even if what he’s saying is only partially true, it still means that all of my efforts toward increasing pleasantness Read more »
