Speaking of Huge Pop Culture Phenomena You’ve Never Heard of

Now that TIME has finally gotten around to hearing of the dumb Left Behind books, it could be just a matter of time before they hear about a truly worthwhile Evangelical endeavor, the magnificent work of Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki known as Veggie Tales! (YAY!) I love these things and they just get funnier with each new addition. And now, I have discovered that two friends of mine–professional musicians who are fellow parishioners here in Seattle–got to play in the orchestra that scored the most ambitious Veggie Tales project yet: a feature length film titled Jonah. Their advance word is “Terrific” (You get to watch the film while you are recording the score.) I tingle with anticipation.
