How could anyone experiencing profound pain honestly say that, though they are drowning in sorrows, it is “well” with their soul? When you look deeper into the origin of this hymn, however, you discover thatContinue reading “Whatever my lot . . .”

Reflecting on the Message of Isaac Watts…
When I survey the wondrous cross On which the Prince of glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.

Delta Rae is My Musical True Love
Allow me to introduce you to my absolute favorite band, Delta Rae. Now, as soon as I say favorite, I feel guilty, because there are lots of bands that I love quite dearly who compete for the lead, but I think that, after seeing them perform live, Delta Rae has moved up to first place.

Thanksgiving deserves to be observed without Christmas getting all up in its business, you know? via That said, once theContinue reading “Christmas Music!”
The more I hear of Macklemore, the more I appreciate his artistry. . .
The Landfill Harmonic
This is just incredible.
Presley & Springfield
Today, after hearing Elvis’s The Girl of My Best Friend on my way to work this morning, I have decided that Jessie’s Girl is totally a rip-off. Compare: Elvis, in 1960 Springfield in 1991: Seems a little fishy. Maybe it’s not all that uncommon to be in love with your best friend’s girlfriend, though.
