Happy (belated) 95 Theses Day!

It was Friday. But really: isn't every day 95 Theses Day?



I've watched this at least a dozen times. It just keeps getting better. (Via IvyGate.)

I actually dressed up as the Door at Wittenberg for Halloween. Two holidays in one (around these parts, the other one is Reformation Day ;)!

I'm in love with this. It is awesome.

Oh snap, he's messing with the Holy Communion.

Totally fab -- thanks for sharing.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh holy crap, Flavia, you just made my entire week. Semester, even. Thank you.

We just started in on the Ref today in Ren-Ref, so this was not only highly entertaining but timely for me. Opening gambit (after showing the video to start class): Does Martin Luther as angry young man fit our evidence?

Yale gets a lot of flack, sometimes from me, but there are moments when I really love that place... especially the undergrads.

Pamphilia said...

I *thought* that looked a lot like Yale.

Dear Flavia: THANK YOU FOR THIS. It totally made my day (which I didn't think could get any better).

You can tell it's a Yalie because he's so lame with the hammer.

CFP: last Halloween, the folks I spent it with joked that we were going to have to have a theme party the next year and dress up as our favorite thesis. I spent this Halloween with the same people--but had totally forgotten about that promise until I came across this video. Next year!

Profane: I'm jealous. I speed through some Ref historical backfill in most of my Ren classes, but not enough that this would really make sense to my students.

And Kate: I wouldn't wish to choose my carpenter from any Ivy, I don't think. I mean, they can't even talk to plumbers.
