While Nate Oman worries about the totally un-cutting edge, uncool, un-hipness of Mormonism, (NO WAY!!! Mormons are not kewl!?!? Dude!! Donny Osmond was soooo hecka awesome in that Billboard topping Wierd Al song!!! Aside: Hooray, Nate's long absence from T&S is over and all of his throughts from the past months are being dumped on daily; no doubt Kaimi's recent end-of-semester induced lapse will be coming to an end shortly and T&S will once again be deluged with his quirky ruminations; we are all eagerly anticipating that now, aren't we? Oh, yeah.) the guys at the Millennial Black Hole are trying to be cutting edge, cool and hip. Since their gambit as The Conservative Third Big Group Blog failed, apparently they are now the savvy hipsters of pop Mormon culture. And why not? I mean, when I think of "cool" I think of Geoff, Clark, Ben and John. Whether this new permutation works for them or not remains to be seen. As for myself, I am just glad Brian finally got rid of that hideous blue/yellow rectangular line from around their ugly logo at the top of their blog. That alone shows a huge improvement in their blog. But, on to the latest M0 trend setting:

Clark thinks Mel Gibson's latest jungle-flavored cinematic festival of sadomasochism will influence Mormonism's view of Nephites and Lamanites, particularly the FARMS LGM (Clark is apparently trying to draw Daniel Peterson out from lurking mode to comment on this one, propelling it into a downward spiral of 100+ comment contention, and therefore drive a lot of traffic to the languishing blog). Clark is so hip with the times not only is he prophet-contradictingly advocating rated R movies in the Bloggernacle, he has also pretty much stopped reading his Book of Mormon. Talk about trendy, the man is down with it, frontin on Kulturblog. PEACE!

But, Geoff B is off the hizzy, yo! Up front admitting to knowing nothing about Outer Darkness, he guesses that Ahmadinejad's Sanhedrin of Holocaust skeptics, currently convened in Iran, would be the kinds of people who would be Sons of Perdition. Nice doctrinal loop the loop. Sons of Perdition are people who had a testimony of Christ, but who then reject Him and want to kill him (you know, like the DAMUs...ha ha, just kidding...I think). How does being historically challenged and a racist bigot fit that definition? Geoff hasn't been reading his Doctrine & Covenants, but he sho'nuff is down on current events. How cosmopolitain.

If DGS posts more often, then he will be "Blah, blah, blah, same 'ol same 'ol"

No, DGS is way funnier, and he does it without being mean. (snark occasionally crosses that line)

Just my opinion. Maybe he'd burn out. But I'd rather have fewer, funnier posts than a lot of drivel.

The entire bloggernacle is nothing but the same old garbage over and over again. There is nothing new under the sun, or on the bloggernacle. Same crap, different day.

Wow, we are so sorry we cross the line sometimes and hurt people's feelings. So to make up for that, we are starting the BrownNoserNacle blogsite. There, we can all love on each other and talk about how clever and smart and educated and nice we all are. Even though none of that is true.
