Extra syrup please

Rainn Wilson from the TV show "The Office" (he plays Dwight if you didn't already know that) has created a website called SoulPancake. I've only had time to click around a little bit on the site, but I think I'm going to have to order a double-stack. It is really a brilliant concept. Here is the description of the site:

Hi. I’m Rainn Wilson. I’m an actor. I helped create this here Web site, SoulPancake.
What is SoulPancake? Well, it’s more of a mission than a Web site...

We want to make discussions about Spirituality, Creativity, and Philosophy cool again. Were they ever cool? I have no idea. But it seems like a good idea. We want to engage the user to “Chew on Life’s Big Questions”™. (I was kidding about the ™ symbol; you can use that phrase however you want. Even to sell frozen taquitos.) Where do you go on the Interwebs if you want an irreverent, fun, and profound take on God and Art and the Soul and Faith and Beauty? Maybe. But maybe also here at

We provide some rockin’ content (interviews, blogs, challenges, contests, features, and more), but it’s really all about having YOU—the SoulPancake community—bring this site to life. Say what’s on your mind. Be real. Talk about WHY WE’RE HERE. And if I say something that offends you, let me have it.

Just remember: Life is a rich, weird, difficult experience. So join us as we go on the spiritual and artistic journey that is SoulPancake.

I'm looking forward to not just viewing but participating in this site. I need more mental stimulation, challenge, and excitement - so I'm glad this place is available where probably not everyone will agree with my points of view - but we can still have fun being part of the discussion.

Plus, come on - who doesn't like pancakes?!?!
