Good news, Logismoi readers! One of the two blogs most directly influential on my own decision to start blogging way back in 2008 is back after a one-year hiatus. Five years ago or so, I thought blogging was for whiny narcissists with nothing to say. Then I discovered Ora et Labora, by the inimitable anonymous blogger, Felix Culpa, and Voice of Stefan, by the equally inimitable New Testament expert and Puerto Rican immigrant, Esteban (pronounced es-TAY-bonn) Vázquez. Ora et Labora, sadly, is now defunct and is not likely ever to be revived, but Esteban has vowed to return to the fray and swell our ranks.
It seems he is not unchanged, however. Continuing his pursuit of an esoteric obsession with folk singer, Paul Simon—whom he believes, along with his erstwhile harmoniser, Art Garfunkel, to be one of the two witnesses mentioned in Revelation 11:3-12—Esteban has altered the name of the blog to Bouncing into Graceland, a reference not so much to the famous Memphis home of Elvis Presley, as to some Simon lyrics considered by Esteban to be the very epitome of greatness.
It is likely that we will hear more of the ‘infallible’ Moisés Silva and (theologically) liberal-killing J. Gresham Machen, that we will be treated to snide dismissals of ‘militant Americanist Orthodox’ and triumphant postings of music videos in Serbian. I urge everyone to follow Bouncing into Graceland eagerly. Ad blogges!
