Dante Exum signs with Adidas. #DanteBall


Adidas announced on Thursday a partnership with Australian NBA Draft prospect Danté Exum. That’s pretty darn big.

Here’s Dante’s comment:

“I’m really excited to join the Adidas family,” Exum said in a news release. “I’ve had the opportunity to play in Adidas Nations in the past and I’ve always liked their shoes and gear. I look forward to what’s to come for me and Adidas.”

And then Adidas:

Wednesday Word 2.001

Let me first say that this video has my tone of voice ALL OVER IT. This guy, Nate, was on point. Take a listen:

I mean, I ranted about this in my book. The end of the video was a little odd and leaves a mystery yet to be solved as that’s his last video to date.

I already talked about this in my book, like I said.

Nate said it. We…

My awesome lighting crew

When I became lighting director in 2010, I didn’t think I was in charge of a ministry. These days, I’m starting to accept that I have a responsibility on my hands.

When I first started, I worked with some cool people. It wasn’t until 2012 that I grabbed my first member of what is now a ministry.

Nia. My Best Boy. For all of you that don’t know lighting terminology, a Best Boy in lighting does…

Good Friday play killing my blogging game


My church is doing this Good Friday play. And, we started working on it late March. I know. And the thing is pretty complicated.

I’m lighting director. On my blog, DALANEL, I talked about my experiences from last year’s Christmas cantata. I had some issues.

None of them distracted me from blogging.

I love to blog. It’s my thing. And, I get very irritated when something gets in the way. In this…

Monday Motivation: Motivate others!

Monday Motivation: Motivate others! #DALANEL


I’m sitting here staring at a blank screen. I was struggling on figuring out what to write about to motivate you. Then I started thinking about how I needed motivation to write, and now here we are.

I’m here to tell you that you need to use today to motivate somebody else.

Use my previous motivations to help spark an idea. Maybe take this opportunity to kinda nudge Harry from accounting that he…

Updates via Twitter and Vine

Updates via Twitter and Vine. Keeping up with my blogging world just got…shorter…

twitter vine

Starting today, my updates for my blog will be coming via Twitter and/or Vine.

Both are quick, straight to the point services (and it just makes sense since they are “siblings”) that allow me to get in and out. It also gets me to be creative. Sometimes, I’ll use both of them and the only way to get the full update is to see them both.

I’ll also be updating with some details of my life as well…

Good Friday 6: One death saves lives #DALANEL


We’ve got one long story for you today. Are you ready?

A story. A girl is dying:

At age 2, Lyndsey was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease which causes mucus to build up in the lungs. Dr. Joshua Sonett, the chief of thoracic surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, treated Lyndsey. In 2011, when he looked at her x-rays, Dr. Sonett said he could…

Dante Cunningham won’t face charges for now

Dante Cunningham won’t face charges for now. #DanteBall


Dante can walk around a free man for the time being. Here’s why:

After a suspect is arrested, prosecutors generally have 36 hours to file charges or they must be released. (They have more time if someone is arrested over a weekend.) But once they’re released, investigators can take their time.

So now, Dante could finish the season with the T-Wolves. Now, Dante can face charges in the future. the…

Wednesday Word 2.001

Here’s the video:

You know, I don’t have to talk about much.

I do want to go into how we are made in God’s image. The young lady didn’t hit on it.

It all starts with Adam. The Trinity was discussing how they wanted a creation to be in their image and likeness. The world has an interpretation of this. We look at the physical. But,…
