Okay, I’m allowed to plug my own stuff on my blog right? Check out the finished gauntlets! Details and notes are on the captions of the pictures. First off I have to say that there was a bit of prayer which went into these gauntlets. I must thank God, the Father of Jesus the Christ for the skill He leant me. I also have to thank the Armour Archive for the pattern and many of the techniques. They are slightly modified, but in essence the same as seen there. These gauntlets were recently featured in a production of Macbeth.
For the past five months I’ve been going to drama practice every Monday afternoon, preparing for the part of Macbeth in Macbeth (Hello, Macbeths, can I interest you in the super-sized Macdeath?). (more…)
Have you noticed that God is often a “badguy”? Hollywood has constructed (or perhaps, derived?) an interesting image of the villain. Let’s see how familiar this sounds.
An extra terrestrial entity, ancient and cunning. He breathes fire. His servants are willing to do anything at his command, including destroy the property, lands, and lives of his detractors. He has vowed to conquer the world at the head of an army of plasma beings, enact draconian rule, and execute anyone who opposes him. He claims that he will blow up the planet rather than surrender control. He already has many agents on earth, who are promised a share in the new world order. He is a misunderstood super-genius who commands a giant spaceship (shaped like a cube) composed of his trans-human followers. He claims to be unstoppable, and laughs at government agents. He practices necromancy. He is bent on revenge. He thinks he is God.
I’m sure you can think of more. To give some credit, many of these are “villainous” qualities only because they should be attributed only to God. Nonetheless, be careful what you believe.
