I finally did it...

For quite a while now I have been too lazy to get a "reader" for all of these blogs that I read. I continued with my being lazy and took the first one that I found which happened to be google's reader. I am not even sure if that is what you call them. But if not, I don't care that is what mine is called. Anyway I am now curious what reader thingy do you use and why should I use that one (cause I know that there must be a better one out there). I might even do the extra work to get a better reader. Though it must be noted that I will not pay for it so it has got to be free. (:

The trouble with migraines

The worship pastor at the church I attend gets terrible migraines. He is not really sure why or what causes them, but he gets them. This last weekend I was playing on the worship team and in the middle of the second service on Saturday night he started to get one. He went home early and the last service just didn't have a closing song. Sunday morning came and he was feeling fine again. The team was excited since him being out with a migraine means a lot of scrambling to find someone to lead and not a lot of practice time. But at the end of the first service he turned to us and said that his migraine was back and he had to leave immediately. Oh boy. So with out any practice the youth pastor stepped up and led the set. He knew all of the songs but one and had about 5 minutes to learn it. The set was a little shaky as we weren't sure if he played to same stops and starts and he just plays a little different. So props to Justin for stepping up and taking charge and doing an amazing job.

Playstation 2

Every since college my video game life has ended. And that is a good thing because I tend to get obsessive and do nothing but play video games. It is really a wonder that I graduated with decent grades, hehehe. On Sunday my brother Ryan gave me his old playstation 2 and a stack of games. Right now I am playing God of War and want to do nothing else. The good thing is that I have matured enough to make sure that I get done what I need to get done first and then I play video games. I just need to make sure that I don't forget that I have a wife as well :)

Do any of you play games and if so what are you addicted to right now?

passwords removed

I just pushed the wrong button and instead of deleting a wrong password, I deleted all of the passwords that my computer was saving for me... oops. This could be a problem.

What is your opinion?

Recently the issue of homosexuality has been coming up in Colette's and my conversation with each other and others. The debate has been over whether or not you can be saved and still be gay. I think that I have my opinions but I would love to hear what you guys think and then I will tell you what I think... So what do you think? Can you be living a gay lifestyle and still be a "christian?"

Ipod Mishap

A long time ago the screen on Colette's Ipod broke. I did a bit of looking around and found a site that would fix it for about one hundred dollars. So I decided that we would get it fixed when we really needed it. After all, we were using my Ipod what did we need two for? Anyway at the advice of this guy, I decided that I would fix it myself. It was supposed to be easy. Well it is, that is once you know what you are doing. Took me a little while, but I did it. I replaced the screen and it worked like a charm. Then it randomly started turning on at night and by the time we got up and went to use it, it was dead. I swore I did something wrong. Some wire must be touching some other wire or something stupid like that that I would have not way of figuring out. Once again a did a little research trying to figure out the problem. I broke it so maybe I could fix it. I read about some guy who had a similar problem. His answer: his alarm was on. So I checked Colette's Ipod. Turns out that several months ago when Colette used it last, she had an alarm set. So Ipod is now working like a charm once and again and I am amazing.

Link Love

So I am really really lazy about this, but there really isn't reason to be... So if you hang around here every once in awhile laugh at my bad grammar and bad spelling and I don't link to you let me know. The whole point of this thing is creating a community and I am failing miserably at this point. So let me know and I will throw a link up to you, and then I can read your blog and we can have a great time together. Thanks

I feel dirty

I just spent a couple of hours looking for photos and videos of the pussycat dolls. they are really trashy. I never really knew that much about them. Now I know they are young sexy girls who act slutty and have no problem being that way. It really sad.

Oh it was for a video project about where as christians we should draw the line at one we listen to. I think that I decided that as christians there really shouldn't be a line between secular and sacred music. It can all be pleasing to God. The only thing that we should stay away from is music that in one way or another degrades a human being. As well if there is something that causes you to stumble then you shouldn't listen to that either.

What do you think about the issue?

Positive Post Tuesday

Last night my church took part of an event called The Gathering Inn. There are 27 churches that provide 50 or so homeless people a good meal and a place to sleep for the night. The ministry revolves between churches to avoid one church getting burnt out. But still there are countless individuals who take the time to run this program. They understand the heart that God has for the poor and the least these and have taken it upon themselves to care for these people. It was an honor to take part in this event for just one night and I have great admiration and respect for the people who take part in this ministry full time. All the work that goes into the setup and as well looking outside your own struggles and life and taking the time to love people that just need love.

Fight at Oscar's

I mentioned on the The Art of Whimsy's Blog that a couple got into a little fight in right in front of us at Oscar's so here is the story.

Pauly, Nathan and I we all gathered around a grand piano playing music. On the other side of the piano there was a bar attached to the piano, sitting there was a girl and a guy. Didn't really think anything of it, they seemed to be enjoying themselves just fine until he slapped her on the butt. She went from happy drunk to pissed off I am going to kill you drunk. She got up to leave and he grabbed her wrist to not let her go. She ripped her hand out of his grip and stormed out the front door. He just sat there shocked for a little bit, then got up took her glass of wine she had just bought and wandered around for a little bit. About two minutes later he was back at the piano talking to me (during a song I might add). During this time the lady walked back in and went to the bathroom. I then became the lookout. The guy asked me to look over his shoulder and make sure nothing happens. REALLY! I am playing music, not getting involved in your fight. For the next 10-15 minutes he looked in shock that she was mad at him and she paced around the bar looking like she was going to kill someone soon. After that they were joking and having a good time again. Stupid drunk people.

This girl also told me a funny story. She came up and said that she had been at the Street Concert so we talking about for a little bit. I asked her if she had a good time. Her response: "Yeah, I only got in one fight." Oh, that is how my fun scale fun works. The more fights the less fun. The reason for the fight is the good part, a real classy guy. She was hanging out with some guy she just met having a good time when he went and bought her a drink. About half was through the drink he took it back and gave it to another girl and ditched her for the rest of the night.

Free Music

This site was just launched today I believe, but it is a place to get music for free. Derek Webb has an album on there along with his wife and several other people that I have not heard of. But like I said the albums are free. You have two ways to do can either tell three people about the album, by providing an email address, or you can pay what you want. A very cool and cutting edge idea that you know you want to take part of.
