godzilla1954c-I’m excited to see what Gareth Edwards does with Godzilla. The trailer is awesome – great color composition and tone and manages not to tell us what happens in the movie!

-I’m sorry, but those iPad stands worship leaders use REALLY get on my nerves.

-My friend, Spence, is one of the most talented musicians I’ve ever met. The past few years, he’s performed “Carol Of The Bells” at his church. Here’s this year’s version.

-I’m so torn about this video. I love how closely they nailed the style and attitude of these musical pieces, but it sure seems like they’re mocking a lot of great, God-honoring music. (Watching this made me realize that worship songs used to be better….)

-If Buzz (from Home Alone) had an Instagram.

-Somebody is pretty clever. ‘Cause every parent does this at some point.

“I think that’s a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people, this is the level that things could be at.

 Kanye West (June 16, New York Times)

Screen shot 2013-11-27 at 9.28.46 PM-This post from Musicademy about what a congregation needs to hear in worship. Good reminders!

-I’m all about the BINGEWATCH. Here’s a list of shows that can be binged in 9 hours. Pretty manageable, I’d say!

-Oh, man. Please let this be real. PLEASE LET THIS BE REAL.

-Just added a funny, interesting podcast called James Bonding. In their first episode, they referenced this video revealing the man responsible for Bond using the Walther PPK.

-I’m almost finished with Double Cross: The True Story of the D-Day Spies. It’s a massive story and starts a little slow, but it’s a great book.

-Not only is this a sweet article, but it reinforces how important color can be in any artistic endeavor.

True – but gross – ways to wish someone a happy birthday.

*Since I love Batman, I’ve decided to have at least one Batman-themed link in each post. I think I can do it. Here.

Screen shot 2013-11-11 at 6.34.24 PM-Don’t like football. But loved this.

-I’d like to see how this warms our living room.

-See, I always knew tuba players were demonic beings.

-I give this a . . . thumbs up.

If you didn’t know, those “scare” ads are fake. Brilliant spoof.

My pal Jamie Brown is getting ready to release a new live worship album from his church. If this opening is any indication, this album is going to be AWESOME.
