Link’n’Blogs – 2.16.18: Everything You Need to Know about Black Panther


Related Content from And There Came A Day


I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.

If the hype machine is to be trusted (it isn’t typically, but I hope it is in this case), Black Panther is the best of the Marvel movies to date. That would be very cool as he is also one of the least known of the Marvel characters to receive a film. Get ready for the movie with Cosmopolitan’s all you need to know about the Black Panther by clicking T’Challa (do you know what that is?) below…

A question for my Catholic friends (or for my friends who are not Catholic but who have attended a Catholic mass or two over the years): how many times have you sung the song Here I Am, Lord? Ten? Twenty? Fifty? More than you can count or care to remember? In America Magazine last October (I just came across the article this week), Colleen Dulle tells the story of the song’s composition and it is a story worth reading! You might never listen to and sing the song the same way. Click the image for the story and enjoy the video of writer Dan Schutte singing what is, arguably, his most famous composition.

Here I am Lord

Yes, It’s Super Bowl Week. Yes, the Broncos are out (but making news? C’mom Captain Kirk Cousins!). Yes, I am sad… but remember the original Orange Crush? Click below… this is a GREAT story one of my good friends posted on Facebook.

Perhaps you have already heard that Neil Diamond is retiring from touring because of his battle with Parkinson’s Disease. He has cancelled the remaining dates on his 50th Anniversary tour and, while he will still write and record, he is done with life on the road. I was lucky enough to see him in concert five times, the most recent being last summer with The Cinnamon Girl and I am very happy that I did. For a man who did not embrace the life of the performer when he began his career, he surely got the hang of things. Neil Diamond, thank you for the live memories… You can click the Washington Post‘s coverage below.

Have you noted that journalism is a little under siege in the United States and, by “a little” I mean completely? It seems to me that journalism has never been more important than it is right now. If you feel the same, you might like this list of the best movies about journalism USAToday compiled. Click below…

Sometimes I want to move to Los Angeles… there are simply events that take place there that do not happen anywhere else. Take upcoming the scheduled live read of All the President’s Men featuring Bradley Whitford, Joshua Molina and Richard Schiff of The West Wing. What I would not give to be a part of that free event! Click the photo for further information and, if you do not live in Los Angeles, be sad like me.

We made a mistake on New Year’s Eve. We watched Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve (a tradition in ours and many homes) and did not even think to change the channel to a different countdown and missed NEIL DIAMOND leading Times Square in a Sweet Caroline singalong… but, thanks to the interwebs, we did not have to start 2018 without seeing it! Click the photo below for People Magazine’s take on the event!
