Jon Bois could make the white pages of the phone book interesting.

Jon Bois is one of the few people who can get away with using Hobbes as their twitter avatar without it coming off as pretentious.

I think he's earned it.

Haven't watched this yet but I will and I am in no way knocking this because Bois is the best but it makes me so sad that he's postponed 20021.

I saw that and thought this post was for some new take on a Coltrane tune. :/

The line about Jesus "going undrafted out of Nazareth" is a classic.

One of the things that I appreciate about this is while I was aware of the Atlanta Falcons, I have never paid that much attention to them. I mean, I knew who Deion Sanders was, but not that he was a two-sport threat.

Also craft that Secret Base has is astounding. They're making a fascinating narrative out of their voices, charts, and still photos—something a lot of movies and TV shows fail to do with millions of dollars worth of special effects.

My favorite promo from Jon yesterday, about Part 5. It has a picture of Bobby Petrino, and the caption:
in tomorrow’s episode of The History of the Atlanta Falcons we will be talking about god’s most perfect angel, an extraordinarily beloved and well-respected man who has never done anything wrong
The replies indicate that Jon might be funning a little bit there. :)
