Africa: something to talk about.
Apparently the entire responsibility of starving children has been placed on me. As facetious as this person’s comment was, it did strike a chord and made me realize the big picture. Legit thanks. you know who you are. Maybe cynicism has been stopping solutions to global problems. It’s a toss up between what is being done, and what people like me think is wrong with what is being...
its where it starts.
thoughts on kony 2012.
I’ll admit that in any other situation, I would have let an awareness campaign such as this pass by unnoticed. …but I probably won’t do the same for this one. coming from a poli-sci background has made me substantially more aware of all the fiscal issues associated with supporting decentralized, social activism-based causes such as the one Invisible Children advocates…...
the struggle of life is learning to love.
the model of redemption. you come out of it but you fall back in. fight for joy; the light at the end of the tunnel will grow bigger and brighter. His light shines brightest in the darkness.
peace. at the desert table.
(I only wanted cheesecake.) 1: how are you doing? 2: pretty good, thanks, how are you. 1: good. really enjoyed your music at retreat this year. 2: oh thanks; I had a good team with me. 1: do you ever have a moment of peace when you’re on stage? (takes a moment to respond) 2: yes. all the time. 1: don’t you find it hard to focus with all instruments and sounds going on behind and...

All the Bright Lights CD through a pair of SR60i’s and a Fiio e6 is truly a heavenly experience. .yeah. B-)
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
its been a while
…productivity, how I have missed you dearly. Love at the End - done. Subtle Things - done. Running - done. Standing - done. All that I can Say - done. Redeemer - 50% there. overall? good summer :)
plausible or beneficial
how great thou art.
800 voices from three different congregations singing in three different languages. beauty.
for the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. lift your hands; strengthen your knees; so that what is lame may not be put out of joint; but rather be healed.
spent a good two hours switching pedals around the board… nothing was sounding right for the longest time. times like those where I wish I had a Pod… …or miles better than that; I could just be more content? If only there wasn’t such a huge gap between being content and being able to create the sounds you have in your head. worse yet; i even lack the resources to...
so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Vocals: Blue Spark Condenser Rode M3 - for acoustics; background vox; general all purpose Guitar: 1 Analog Delay… Malekko 616 or DMM. 160 vs. 300. hmm. Boss RV-5… look for used. range from 100-125. No brand new. Micro Pog… not urgent. but would be nice. Bigger pedalboard… if can sell off old PT-2, upgrade to PT-3 or PT-pro (160 new) JHS Buffer - 95 +20 shipping....
a beautiful war.
Discernment is key here; I need to control dynamics. i like it when ideas start flowing through again. Think ambience; space; subtlety. fill the room and fill all the ears in it. Guitar will take the first bit of it; Piano takes over the main melody line as the drums and bass come in, and the guitar slips into the background for support. this is where the layering begins. gtr: tremolo...
