Listening to a podcast from AFR. Honestly, this is frustrating. How do you have several graduate degrees, command of multiple languages, years of experience in theological discussions, national exposure and a university teaching position, etc... and still not be able to muster more insight or depth than someone could get from a basic level wiki article? In fact, I think the wiki article would have less mistakes.

Which one, if you don't mind disclosing?

I just stumbled on another podcast after being directed to the site by a post of yours and was heartily disappointed by the "Bashing Heads" one (Spoiler alert: don't worry about OT stuff, as the silly cavemen people didn't understand God yet). 
I just listened to that yesterday.  It's better when he focuses on keeping his podcasts under the 4 minute mark.  I didn't come to the same conclusion as your spoiler, though.

My spoiler was in poor taste. The podcast was obviously more nuanced and helpful than I gave it credit for.  It included the required "seen through the light of the New Testament," but also talked about how many Fathers--not just modern folks uncomfortable with difficult subjects--used allegorical interpretations for spiritual benefit.  While I think the message that difficult portions of scripture are beneficial to us is important, the topic of difficult portions seems too intense and complex for a several minute podcast.  In the end though, I felt that he too easily fell back on the view that these "bashing" acts were misinterpretations of a people not able to understand God's will and message yet.  I don't think this is wrong, per se, but a tad too dismissive of a lot of "bashing" that apparently happened in scripture.

I found a thread discussing elements from the topic, but it didn't seem too helpful.  I may revive it at some point though.

Mariah Carey - We Belong Together.

Instant classic, and really the only true great MC song.

I remember Mariah Carey being the best female singer, like, ever, back in the early/mid-90s. Of course I was a lonely teenage boy and she was a famous and pretty girl... but I'm sure that had nothing to do with it.

Pantera - Cowboys From Hell (http://youtu.be/JHPV-XF0vx0)

I always thought if I was a pro wrestler that I would want the first part of this to be my ring entrance music. It's a great representation of where Pantera and pro wrasslin cross paths, with the whole corny, flashy (but not especially substantive), energetic, tough-guy shtick/vibe.

I guess the anniversary of the passing of Darrell was a couple days ago.

Can you reword/reorder the last sentence? :)

As for Pantera, eh, I don't hate them the way some people seem to, but I also usually didn't like more than a couple songs off each album (though Far Beyond Driven was fine I thought).

Yes, I will reword it. Pantera is quite a belligerent phenomenon if it wasn't for the great art that sometimes flows through them. I use them for the art. I don't hate them overall, God forbid! :)
