    Another day, another senseless shooting.

    We bring you this summer's blockbuster season of random shootings in our nation's movie theaters! See guns discharged by madmen in quiet suburbs of Tennessee and Louisiana! (The message may be a rerun, but it's no less frightening.)...

  • My Single Peeps: Aviv A.

    July 5, 2012 | 2:47 pm

    Aviv, 34, shows up to our interview dressed to the nines. He’s wearing khakis, a blue chambray shirt and a plaid blazer. He’s wearing Gant — a label I like a lot. And I appreciate how fastidious he is about clothing. “When you work in video games, everyone around you is a...

    In the last six years, I along with my husband and kids have lived in many different cities.  In part its due to my husband’s profession; having been in the entertainment field for over 20 years, its just a way of life.  Moving away from Orange County a few years ago was the hardest...

    What’s a mother of boys to do during the 2-week Winter break?  After days of wrestling, fighting, video game playing, and countless hours of television, I decided to take my boys to “Color Me Mine” for some ceramic painting.  I’ve done it before myself, but my boys never showed...

    The Boy Scouts of America—known for getting kids outside and active—has added a new “academics” pin and belt loop for one of the most sedentary indoor activities around: video games.

  • ‘Jesus is Just Alright’

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    Wesley Pinkham read my last post about “Guitar Praise” and was wondering why “Jesus is Just Alright with Me” was left off the list. (I personally was looking for anything by Faith + 1; there’s a clip of their greatest hits, including “Pleasing Jesus,” after the jump.) Watch the above video and you’ll know the answer.

  • Forget Guitar Hero, Christian rockers already have Guitar Praise

    By Brad A. Greenberg

    December 30, 2008 | 11:35 am

    Shows how little I know.

    Yesterday I pondered whether “Guitar Hero” could save Christian music. Turns out “Guitar Praise” is already on the scene.

    The game, which runs on PC or Mac, looks a lot like its secular sister but with a more holy set of songs from Caedmon’s Call, David...

    For many, the dead week between Christmas and New Year’s is a built-in break from work. For me, it’s a welcomed opportunity to return to productivity.

    Don’t get me wrong: I had a few great days of rest, capped off with a great day of sports yesterday (first watching the Bruins thump...

    This post from Islamophobia Watch will make your stomach turn:

    A computer game in which players control an American soldier sent to “wipe out the Muslim race” has been condemned as offensive and tasteless by a British Muslim group. The goal of Muslim Massacre, which can be...

  • It’s all in the game

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    July 6, 2008 | 10:47 pm

    “What are you trying to do?” I asked my husband as he sat on our couch playing “Halo 3” on his Xbox.

    “I’m trying to save the cartographer,” he told me as he proceeded to shoot at some creature that was, in turn, shooting at him.

    “Wouldn’t it just be easier to go...
