Pretty Little Liars Season 6 Promo: Charles’ Twisted Game Turns Deadly

Samuel:

I am excited only because I don’t know why I continue to watch this. LOL.

Originally posted on TVLine:

It’s appropriate that the Season 6 premiere of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars (June 2, 8/7c) is titled “Game on, Charles” because, as you’ll see in TVLine’s exclusive first look at the promo, the newly revealed “A” has only begun to play.

And because this alleges to be the “summer of answers,” allow me to pose a few questions for you to consider while you obsessively re-watch the 30-second teaser all weekend (unless that’s just me):

0:03 — How did Mona get separated from the herd?
0:10 — Is she “M”? If so, how is she sending the girls’ messages from wherever Charles is keeping her?
0:12 — Who is Toby pointing that thing at?
0:19 — What inspired the return of Aria’s pink hair?
0:15 — Is that pizza or vomit?
0:22 — If…

Warriors basketball: A passion that never goes away

Samuel:

A story of my journey as a Warriors fan. Great read.

Originally posted on But at the end of the day...:

Been a Warriors fan through these three eras.

A trip down memory lane for me as a Warriors fan. 

I remember I was in first grade and I saw the Warriors on TV. I didn’t know much about basketball, I just liked it. I would try to imitate what I saw on TV to the playground. I even remember the first ever basket I made on the playground I thought that I could one day match what the Warriors did. It was so easy to be impressed by this Warriors team. Little did I know that they were embarking on a playoff drought. But they were the first team I watched. The first team I followed. I fell in love with basketball because of them. And I never left.

It’s not easy being a Warriors fan. As I grew older, my frustrations would grow more and more with the team…

21-day fast and prayer testimonies

Samuel:

For 21 days I fasted and spent my time praying. What happened? Check out my story and four other friends who did the same thing. God did some great things!

Originally posted on Love God, Love People, Change the World:

FastingLast week, we as a church concluded a 21-day fasting period. During the fast, each person spent time in prayer daily to focus on God and to deepen the relationship. The purpose of the fast was to cut out distractions from our lives such as social media or junk food and in its place spent time to draw strength from God. Along with prayer, it opened up an avenue for us to connect with our Lord and it enhanced that relationship.

Before Jesus began His ministry, he spent 40 days in fasting and in prayer. He wanted to connect with His Father. Despite the devil’s attempts to tempt Jesus away from his fast, Jesus resisted because His relationship with God was strong. Jesus depended on God for strength, not the temptations and distractions from the devil.

Several members of our church experienced great change in their lives during the three weeks of fasting…

The ‘What If’ Christmas

Samuel:

I just wrote a blog post about the “what if” of Christmas if Jesus never came.

Originally posted on Love God, Love People, Change the World:

What if Jesus never came to save us?

As we are in the Christmas season and we have so much to do (decoration, buying gifts) during this time of year, we often lose track of the importance and reason of Christmas. This past Sunday, we had an amazing sermon about the core foundation of Christmas. I recommend you check it out right here. It’s very powerful.

I haven’t really fully participated in Christmas as the world tells me to do so. I don’t put up decorations or even do any gift buying for others. It’s not that I am a Grinch, but I have come to realize that for the longest time, I have ignored Jesus in this whole story. Christmas was more about the eggnog and wreaths than the actual story of Jesus’ arrival. It just didn’t feel right.

Then it made me wonder: What…

I drove all the way up to Bakersfield to see the Condors on Seinfeld night

Samuel:

This is how I spent my Saturday.

Originally posted on But at the end of the day...:

Last night I drove up to Bakersfield. I had never been there before and it was a two-hour drive I thought I would dread. Luckily I was going there because the ECHL Bakersfield Condors were hosting a Seinfeld night. I just had to go. My old college buddy Mark lives out there so it was good to catch up and enjoy some good Seinfeld fun.

Before that, we stopped by Red House BBQ in Tehachapi. Delicious!!!

Brisket with mac & cheese, fried pickles and a piece of the Indian taco bread.

After that, we chilled for a bit before heading out to the game. I didn’t know what to expect. They had a rickshaw race and a costume competition that never actually happened. It was a bummer that not a lot of people showed up. Do they not like Seinfeld?

Forgiving someone isn’t easy

Samuel:

Forgive with love. Amen!

Originally posted on Love God, Love People, Change the World:

By Samuel Lam

It ain’t easy, but it’s right.

This past Sunday, Trinity continued with their #DoHardThings sermon series and the topic was about forgiveness. Boy, that ain’t easy.

LISTEN TO THE SERMON RIGHT HERE

Forgiveness is something that should be part of our daily lives as Christians. We are taught to forgive others because we ourselves have been forgiven. The mercy that God shows us should be something we give to others.

But it’s not easy.

Forgiveness may be the hardest topic to really take in from the #DoHardThings sermon series. Many times, especially for me, I’m too prideful. I want to come out as the “stronger” person. Somehow forgiving someone makes me appear weaker, making it appear that not taking vengeance is a sign of me being less of a man. Of course it’s silly to think that is true when you take a couple steps back. But…

The Simpsons Kills Off Krusty’s Dad in Season Premiere

Samuel:

I think there were two deaths. At the end, while in heaven, Rabbi says he’ll see Krusty next week. That must mean…

Originally posted on TIME:

Fans of The Simpsons will be sitting shiva tonight for Rabbi Hyman Krustofski, father of chain-smoking children’s entertainer Krusty the Clown and the first fatality of the show’s 26th season.

Voiced by comedian Jackie Mason, Pa Krusty died on Sept. 29. He was born and raised in the Lower East Side of Springfield, where he became “the most respected man” in the community. It was there that he raised a son, Herschel.

Rabbi Krustofski intended for his son to become a rabbi like himself and Herschel’s grandfather, but the boy’s desire to become a clown came between the two. Herschel grew up to become Krusty the Clown, a figure of joy to kids in the town of Springfield (State Still TBD) and beyond. But the Krustofskis were estranged for many years, and only reunited with the help of a couple local children: Bart and Lisa Simpson.

Late in…
