Noah's Ark?

It's no secret I get most of my headlines from, which is linked to the left. This picture was on there concerning the "Arrorat Anomoly". Too bad the jerks in Turkey won't grant any expeditions, haha turkey jerkey. Anyways, this isn't ALL that new. I saw an episode of unsolved mysteries in like, 1995 all about the possible uncovering of the ark. I also hope that ark is spelled with a "k" and not a "c".

If this IS Noah's Ark, what would that mean? I wonder if we would all turn into literalists.

Christian Music

So this article was on today.

Mute Math, a band which I thouroughly (sp?) enjoy and have seen live twice is filing suit with Warner Bros. over which label they've been placed on. Paul Meaney, MuteMath's founder/keyboardist/writer/vocalist asserts that the "Word" label is "overtly Christian". I don't know a whole lot about the music biz, but i'm assuming what label you're on affects your distribution and definately marketing strategy.

I do know a little about Christianity and a little about music. I know that Mute Math writes and performs some of the most innovative music i've ever heard, some of the best music i've ever heard. I also know that this debate will piss off everyone: Christians who only listen to Christian music and um, non-Christians who automatically can't stand any "christian" music.

Thing is, most "christian" music is for Christians. I think Mute Math is saying their music is for both Christian and non-Christian audiences. I think they don't want to be pidgeon-holed by being placed on the same label as worship bands. Go to
Mute Math doesn't want to be on the same label as Amy Grant. Can you blame em?

I love David Crowder. But his music is for Christians. Shoot, now that I think about it Mute Math opened for Crowder, and that's how I found out about them...ironic. Anways, I shudder to think what some Christians will say about Mute Math "defecting" from faithful Christian record buyers, even if that who comprises their biggest fan-base right now.

Join the Club!

I have made a very tangible step towards full blown adulthood and all the mundane responsibilities that come with it. I have looked, selected, applied, and been accepted to an apartment complex in St. Louis. Myself and two buddies are newly approved residents in "Pine Tree Club Apartments". Thus, i'm in the club! Just a quick update on life.

Sometimes I wonder if i'm too laid back about things, or if it's lazyness. Went to, did some emailing, went and looked at about 4 places and picked one. *List of things to do* Find place to live....check.

Also, I should add a caviot to my cingular entry as I recieved a very luxurious phone in an extremely timely manor. Well done!

The $5.50 bin continues to amaze me....empire records!

Not much theology going on the blog, but plenty in my head.

Oscars were last night, I need to see Crash. I did however see Memoirs of a Geisha, which won multiple cinematography and costume design awards, so there.
