New Music: House of Heroes “The End is Not the End”

October 15, 2008

I love this album. You have to buy it, listen to it, then listen three more times. It is weird and wonderful,  interesting, and pop awesome. I wish I could explain this album. I guess……….. its kind of like………… an ambitious rock opera, in all the right and amazing ways. It would be wise to read about it before you listen: for two excellent reviews (4 1/2 stars and 5 stars) check out Christianity Today and Jesus Freak Hideout.

New music: Brandon Heath’s “What if We”

October 15, 2008

This is not my typical recommendation. As of late, I have struggled with the more “mainstream” CCM-type Christian music. Frankly, it all seems a little obvious and unoriginal. There is something different about Brandon Heath.

I can’t really put my finger on it, but man- it is good. It seems fresh, and authentic. Bottom line: you should check it out.

My two favorite tracks: “Give me your eyes”, and “Love Never Fails”.

Going on a Trip?

Ever wonder exactly how much moola it is going to cost on a road trip. Kim Komando sent out this link, and its pretty impressive.

Take your trip, plug in the specifics, including the make and model of your car, and this site will produce a gas cost estimate.

Helpful? Me thinks so.
