Does Southern Utah University unfairly – and perhaps unethically – skew its recruitment and advertising toward the LDS faithful? Gary Coleman – RIP.  Now your ex-wife insists that you would have wanted her to have your “Church Ball” money. A woman is denied wedding services because of the Church’s stance on Prop 8 – and it wasn’t even for an LDS wedding.  The denier of services merely assumed she was LDS because she lived in Utah.  It’s high time this sort of discrimination stopped.  You wouldn’t do that to any other group – gay, Jew, black – yet it’s somehow OK to do it to the Mormons? Our favorite person ever – A Scottish man makes his tenants sign an affidavit requiring them to pretend to be LDS so that he can get some sort of tax break.  AWESOME. Apple app store gets new official LDS app.  We’ll give you our review. Follow us to bliss: Gary Coleman and the “Church Ball” estate SUU advertising Seminary for everyone! Freedom!  Equality! App store hoo ha Awesome Scottish man.  Skirt those council taxes! Anti-LDS prejudice. Here’s the drill: Contact Martha Stewart Weddings (info@marthastewartweddings.com) and demand she...

The Music of TWiM

Hey folks.  Geoff here.  I am often asked what the various songs or artists are that are featured on the intro and outro music of each episode of TWiM.  As our episode count grew, I also grew – only more reluctant than before to actually itemize every artist and song and make them available to you. However, I have been a good little boy, and now you may see at the top of the main page a link for “TWiM Music.”  Go there and see a list of all music featured on the seventeen episodes of TWiM recorded so far.  I will also update it every week from now on.  I’ve included hyperlinks to purchase any of the music you see or hear.  I am hugely into music, so I hope that making this list available to you will be appreciated and useful. Support good music and support the...

Does the Church weigh in on cosmetic surgery for its membership? Based off of the many fake women walking around Draper, probably not. Utah is the “happiest state in the Union.” Right. You will now refer to him as Dr. Glenn Beck. Or will such progressiveness destroy the fabric of America? Calgary gets a temple. The 1988 Winter Olympics weren’t enough?
