Found this blog today on beliefnet where the guy lists 10 Christian songs he grew up loving but is now embarassed to admit it, songs like DC Talk’s “Word 2 the Father,” Carman’s “Who’s In the House” and Audio Adrenaline’s “Big House.” So it got me thinking, because I have plenty of those, going back a few years more even. Here are some:”People In A Box” -Farrell and Farrell – A Devo-ish song about television that incorporates the theme of… Read more

I’ve been reading scathing reviews of this movie for the past week, but I saw it over a week ago and, for the most part, I enjoyed it. I guess with this positive movie review, I truly am a federation army of one:Take Me Back: Star Wars – The Clone Wars ReviewA long time ago, I left a galaxy far, far away. It wasn’t a conscious choice; I had all the souvenirs–action figures, model sets and even a talking alarm… Read more

I don’t know what has come over me but perhaps in the few weeks, it’s almost like I’ve thought “I’m not connected enough on the internet.” Because I’ve increased the amount of my internet networking accounts by 100% (or is it 200%? Maybe it’s 200% because a 100% would just be the same, right? I digress).Twitter has been the coolest thing lately. If you don’t have an account, sign up and let’s follow each other. I explained it to several… Read more

What might it mean that The Dark Knight, the second installment of Chris Nolan’s Batman revamp, is well on its way to becoming the biggest grossing superhero movie of all time? Does it underscore a new public sensibility about superheroes, identifying more with normal humans with extraordinary passions? Or is it the result of a perfect storm of good story, superb cast and capable production? Most likely it’s both.In The Dark Knight, Bale’s Batman grapples with the mob and the… Read more

I woke up Monday morning to drive home from Chattanooga and couldn’t find my Treo. I looked all over my friend Jay’s house before coming to terms with the fact that I had lost my smart phone. The night before, I’d gathered with a bunch of my friends in a field for a belated 4th of July picnic sponsored by my church in Cleveland.I thought to myself surely I couldn’t have lost it the same way I did before. That’s… Read more

I know you’ve already seen this picture before on this site but today I’m participating in a Third Day group blog, so bear with me. This is back in 1995 before we were famous (notice I included myself) and we are so young (me a little older, though). I remember being impressed that they were all from my hometown of Marietta, Georgia and comparing notes on high schools (I went to Lassiter).And here are few more current pics:By the way,… Read more

The Newsboys’ Peter Furler was my very first interview ever, back in the fall of 1994. A few years ago I caught back up with him and suddenly my interviewing skills reminded me of old Chris Farley sketches so I just went with it. Read more

Had a chance to see the new Pixar film Wall-E Monday night. So far, I think I’m one of the only reviewers I’ve seen who has anything negative to say. Don’t get me wrong – I loved the first half of the movie. The second half, not so much. Read my review here and tell me what you think (I’m proud of the headline). Read more

Being a child of the 80s, one of my most memorable interviews has been with the enigmatic Sinead O’Connor. A couple of years ago, she recorded Theology, an album of songs inspired by the Old Testament (with a New Testament song as well) and sought to speak to religious audiences.I didn’t know what to expect when I called her. I had images of the outspoken rebel shunning the mainstream in my mind and wondered if her hesitation and awkardness might… Read more
