They Are Back

October 3, 2007 — 4 Comments

2 of Christian music’s classic bands are back. (and by classic I mean…I loved them and they haven’t been in the forefront in forever) I hope you guys like them. It is a little different.

Danielson Family
one of my favorite bands of all time. This is a love or hate them kinda band and I honestly dont know anybody besides me who likes them so I hope you get converted. They have a very unique style. It actually is a family and they are all about Christ. the site. the blog.
Check out the new video below

Another killer band I was into in the early 90’s. They were kinda cutting edge experimental punk. They did some crazy stuff with text from bible in music. check i out below. The site.

Exodus 6

Act Your Age?

September 17, 2007 — 25 Comments

I’ve been thinking a lot lately and finding that I have more to say on life for this blog then just showing the millions of readers cool resources. So here goes.

A funny thing has been coming into my brain lately..It has been spurred on by the many times I am around other adults and people my age. Usually it is when I am standing waiting for my son to come out of school, when we are at Navy, when I am waiting for my boy to finish his karate class, and most of all at guitar center(MECCA). This phenomenon is trying to find where I fit in. I am 30 years old prematurely bald and greying. I am married to a beautiful wickedly smart woman who does occupational therapy, a field where I could not survive on account of my lack of smartieness. I have 2 boys and one on the way. Why did I tell you that…well it’s because I don’t feel my age.

So there I am at my kids school with the other parents. They are in their BMW’s and wicked pricey cars, wearing pretty nice clothes and living the life and look of a normal adult. Me…well I’m in carpenter jeans from old navy, sneakers, a hat that says Sugar Daddy and a Tshirt with Spiderman on the front.  For Christmas this past year every present I got on the box said for 5 and under. I have my Optimus Prime sitting on my desk right next to my batman and gandolf. I have guitars and one is decked out in tribal stickers. I still love skulls and all things rock n roll. and my kids sit with me and watch steve vai and guitar festival videos.

There is more I can go into, but the reality is this. I am a gen x’r and love every minute of it, but I am also moving quite fine into the ipod generation…the funny thing is this doesnt help me act my “Age”

How old are you…acting?
