MEDIA OF THE WEEK 11/29

  1. Jesus Camp movie -- not sure this accomplishes more than simply fueling the culture wars. I did have a good laugh from the scene when Becky prays for the PowerPoint slides.
  2. "Unfollow" by Adrian Chen chronicles the granddaughter of Westboro Baptist Church's founder, who renounced her past after many years of active participation in the cause. Twitter, indie rock, and Words with Friends save the day!
  3. Headhunters -- awesome Norwegian thriller. Highly recommended!
  4. Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut -- come for the musings on Midwestern Americana, stay for the bawdy illustrations
