Two Timing

28 Oct

Continuing my series of little reviews of blogs I happily link to (and therefore commend you also to read), I offer up to your good judgement and valuable time 2 blogs for the price of one!

The two blogs are Photizo and Freak Out, both by an extremely passionate young man named Larry. Now Larry is passionate about many things. Primarily, I’m sure he’d say, he’s passionate about Christ crucified and that glorious truth proclaimed. It’s this passion that is the fuel for his devotional-esq, daily challenge blog Photizo.

Photizo (which oddly enough can be found at…something to do with fanetics) is apparently authored by a few Ex/Warwick students. But for the main part serves as an arena for Larry to offer up anything and everything from expositions to challenges, quotes to videos. All with one primary focus. Making Christ better known (to ourselves and the world around us).

Okay so he does write a little like the books he reads (very old style), but there’s a real warmth and poetry sometimes to his words. Definitely worth checking out. Photizo

But he’s also passionate about a few other things namely Coheed and Cambria, reading like a geek, being smug for speaking 8 languages and mocking me. All of which I reckon fuel his more personal blog Freak Out.

“Freak Out” is a reference to his ubber cool housemates ( if any one uses the phrase ubber cool they by definition can not be themselves). But the blog itself is probably better described as a holiday journal. I say holiday, he’s on a few months placement in Martinique (or something close to that). There you’ll find things slightly less serious than Photizo. It has anecdotes, stories of happenings and some personal challenges. All in all it’s another dose of Larry (with a little more humor thrown into the mix). I recommend it for a) the pictures of MTQ are very pretty, b) the theology/personal challenge stuff is every bit as good as Phtoizo (if not better as it’s often more linked to culture and ‘life’) and c) because reading Larry when he’s all worked up is quite a lot of fun.

So there we go. Check them out and if you like them, book mark them. And don’t forget to comment!

    a) Yes, this writing old school … some friends at warwick now call such “verbosity” -“larryisms”

    Lol… as long as verbosity and “old school” vernaculars doesn’t turn into obfuscation!
