Today is Good Friday and we remember the death of Jesus Christ. But also, it’s a celebration because it is Jesus fulfilling His promise to give us eternal life. It’s a good day. That’s why we call it Good Friday.
One of my favorite parts of the Good Friday story actually is Jesus’ conversation with two criminals that hung with Him on the cross. It’s a simple story, but a powerful one that still sticks with me to this day.
While onlookers hurled insults at Jesus, mocking Him for proclaiming to be the Messiah, one of the criminals spoke to Jesus.

A lot is still under wraps for Warner Bros.’ upcoming “Batman-Superman” movie, but it looks like Hans Zimmer will return to score the upcoming sequel.
Zimmer told Digital Spy that he will begin working on Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” follow-up once he completes the score for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” (Nolan evidently kept the sci-fi film’s plot a secret from his longtime composer).
“We’ve already had a couple of chats and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about, I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas,” Zimmer, who most recently scored Oscar winner “12 Years a Slave” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” said.
Zimmer is no stranger to the Batman universe, having penned the music to Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy. However, he said the experience only…

One of the great things about going to Anaheim to watch the Angels and A’s play is that A’s fans show up and they are so loud.
Seeing my good buddy Jeff there was something I was glad to do. Last time the A’s were in town we sat next to each other, got some TV time, and really had a ball. I went with two other friends but I made sure I found him. And look at us, we ended up wearing the same shirt.
The game was a fun one and it had its ups and downs. Angels fans aren’t very loud per usual but when the home run from Jaso cleared the wall, the place went dead silent and then the A’s fans erupted. The dejection was so sweet.
It’s humbling to see someone say that my work is their inspiration.

Covelli “Coco” Crisp. A’s leadoff hitter, center fielder, and fan favorite. He has one bobblehead made by the A’s, but it is a “Bernie Leaning” bobblehead. He also has a gnome coming out on June 22 as well. But i prefer to have a bobblehead of him in a gametime pose. so, here it is.
the only SGA (stadium giveaway) bobblehead i found of Coco Crisp was a 2005 release of him as a Cleveland Indian. it took me some time to buy one off of eBay because these were fairly rare to find for the right price. but once i found one, it was off to the races to transform him into the Green and Gold.
1. Sand off Indians logos
2. Sand off jersey sleeve lines (the vest jersey lines showed)
3. Sand off base logos
4. Paint batting helmet, jersey, and base

That Coachella performance was sweet. The entire Illmatic album was performed. Hov and Diddy came to perform too.
I felt just like a little kid in a candy store. So good!
My faith would never be the same after that weekend.

Jesus Jordan is the best ever.
With Easter approaching in two weeks, I want to share a story of an Easter Sunday I celebrated almost 10 years ago.
When I was a freshman in college, I started attending this start-up church in the area. It was a great community of people who loved Jesus and weren’t afraid to be different. In fact, the pastor embodied the identity of the church perfectly. Pastor Elton Lin wasn’t the kind of guy that felt that structure had to dictate our faith. If we felt like dancing, then dance. If we wanted to express our love of Jesus through art, then go draw. If you felt like hugging one another, then hug. It was a big change for me because I grew up believing and understanding that church had to be structured and controlled at all times.
(After a few years…
