the daily purge 1-2-17


It is a CD-DVD holder. It is much more fashionable than the ones with the cloppy feet The Purging Lutheran gave to Goodwill today. We kept DVD movies on this case. What sort of movies does a Lutheran watch anyway? (warning: may contain spoilage)

We have Luther starring Joseph Fiennes. It contains scenes such as the nailing of The 95 Theses, the entry to the Wittenburg Room, and meeting his future wife, Katie, who had just traveled four days and nights in a fish barrel to meet Martin. It’s fun to see a scene you recognize from Bible study. It makes you shout out “Boo-yah!

We have The Ten Commandments starring Chuck Heston. He plays Moses, reluctant leader of the Hebrews. With the help of God he humbles Pharaoh and his army. My favorite character is the snarling overseer, Dathan, played by snarling actor, Edward G. Robinson, who is best known for his part as snarling gangster, Rico, in the film Little Caesar. My favorite scene is when the ten commandments are thrown to the ground and the Earth opens up swallowing Dathan.

We have The Philadelphia Story starring Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, and Jimmy Stewart. Grant and Hepburn play a fast-talking divorced couple while Stewart is kind of a goober who gets a little warm around the collar when he is near Hepburn. The movie ends with Hepburn breaking an engagement with a stuffed-shirt millionaire and remarrying Grant. Stewart remains a goober.

We have Iron Man starring MSR heart throb, Robert Downey Jr. He plays fictional heart throb and gazoolionaire, Tony Stark. Tony, in dire straits, builds a mechanical suit which enables him to fly and shoot electricity from his hands. The movie ends with him beating up eggheaded bad guy, Obadiah, played by competent actor, Jeff Bridges. 

We have many more films but too many to detail here. Our case served its purpose until we put all the DVDs in the basement so they would not look so messy stacked next to the television. Thank you.

Philippians 4:8   Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.
