not their real faces

from this last week on The Daily Mash [and Peace!] blog i’d have to say Thursday’s John Piper tweet piece would be one to look at – Friday’s ‘Get your fax straight’ i published on this blog as well under a different title, and if you haven’t watched Wednesday’s Improv TED talk then that is very much worth it, as was Tuesday’s piece about the inspirational feet-paint-tree-creation-on-road-in-Hong-Kong bit… so i’d start with those and catch up on anything else you may have missed this week:

Monday was a collection of pictures which were more for appreciative head-nodding smiling than laugh out loudnessity but worth a look nonetheless – http://mashandpeace.wordpress.com/2013/05/20/monday-funday-episode-9-origin-of-the-saying-i-could-just-eat-you-up-kinda/

Tuesday was a collection of three news stories that caught my attention from the restaurant that was closed down cos it smelled too much of bacon to an inspirational project to create environmental awareness to freedom of speech curtailed – http://mashandpeace.wordpress.com/2013/05/21/tuesday-news-day-episode-9-news-of-bacon-of-street-feet-tree-painting-and-not-being-allowed-to-sing-about-god/

Wednesday contained an amazing and refreshing TED talk focusing on improv to look at the idea of a shared experience of absurdity –http://mashandpeace.wordpress.com/2013/05/22/wednesday-wed-day-episode-9-absurd-in-the-hand-is-worth-two/

Thursday was an in the moment [the blog changed as i read tweets during the writing of it] look at the John Piper tweet saga that had just broken and some related and important issues – http://mashandpeace.wordpress.com/2013/05/22/thursday-thirsty-episode-9-john-piper-and-the-three-little-pigs/

And then Friday continued by looking at the importance of context and hoax-checking before you pass on the latest piece of gossip the world needs to hear from you [and me] – http://mashandpeace.wordpress.com/2013/05/24/friday-my-day-episode-9-get-your-fax-straight/

In addition to all of this, here is a sneak peek of Brad Fish [from the hit show ‘Dangerous Things You Can Least Expect’] in his new educational show called ‘I can learn you a thing.’:

so my new ‘The Weekly Mash [and Peace!]‘ blog is still in its early days but it’s been encouraging to see new people subscribing almost daily – as it is still quite new though not a lot of people are visiting each of these posts and there have been some amazing things there, so if you are someone who reads stuff on Irresistibly Fish [my main blog] all the time, then i encourage you to at the very least pick one of the five days here below that sounds the most interesting and check it out cos there was some good stuff in the week that was:

Monday had two clips of people i find quite funny – Nina Conti and her audience participation ventriloquism act and The Boy with Tape on His Face

Tuesday continued my quest to find positive upbuilding news and this story of a college athlete willing to give up his career to save a life, caught my attention big time.

A look at how a heart-felt apology needs to go way beyond just saying the word, ‘Sorry’.

Thursday took a look at how Jesus felt about a man who more than likely was not going to buy into His message. And our response.

Friday is a post I hope everyone will take a look at – the question of what positive difference are you making to the world, really?

so recently i started another blog called ‘The Weekly Mash [and Peace!]’ which has a different theme for every day and i have decided that i am going to post the Saturday Round Up on my Irresistibly Fish blog so that subscribers can have access to the week that we have just vibed through… so if you missed any of these, pick the ones that look interesting, and enjoy… [the FRIDAY one feels like one of the most significant things i have written for a while so would love for you to at least check that one out if you haven’t and share it with your peoples]…

Monday saw us being enlightened as to the amusing eating habits of a variety of wild animals, performed by a rather silly man.

Tuesday took a look at the death of Margaret Thatcher and some of the unfortunate happenings related to that.

Wednesday asked the question of how your relationship with yourself is doing at the moment.

Thursday was some more self-reflection, but this time linked to the state of your heart, and God’s.

Friday took a rather cutting look at the labels we put on other people and what that might say to them, and to us. [MUST READ!]
