Move over Thronos, there’s a new Razer mega chair in town

Last year, I was both awed and terrified by the massive Acer Thronos gaming chair. It was a huge, mechanical monstrosity with three screens attached to an LED-encrusted metal arm that swooped down over your head, and you knew the moment you’d locked its fold-out keyboard tray into place that it was going to eat you alive and never let you leave.

Our Gaudete Joy in the Gospel

This Sunday, we celebrate Gaudete (Rejoice!) Sunday. Our Gospel gives us John the Baptist in prison as our meditation. Isn’t that a bit downbeat?

He sent those disciples to Jesus with a question: Are You the One Who is to come, or should we look for another?” What prompted this question? It is highly unlikely that John himself had any doubts about…
