night at the attic

hey peeps. here’s a time lapse from last nite. it’s really in a bad spot, so next wk i’ll try a different location. and i’m pretty sure this marks the beginning of a fascination with time lapse’s. i’ll probably time lapse just about everything.
(music by the myriad)
cheers

love, love, love love love austin texas

although it’s cool to be away, it’s good to be home. home means cooked meals, fast internet, daily access to some of the greatest food on earth (ie: austin, tx), and GREAT FRIENDS. i’m not gonna give you a restaurant review, but i finally got to try hut’s and it was dang good. the best burger i’ve had in town for sure. i went with my parents to austin memorial day to take some stuff to goodwill and then i was hoping to be able to try
frank & angie’s but they were closed for memorial day. so we ended up at matt’s el rancho. not a bad 2nd choice! should be an easy week this wk and we hit it hard next wk.
until then,

cheers

pray for the chapman family

i found this out through another blog, but steven curtis’ youngest adopted daughter from china was killed in their driveway earlier this evening. you can read the rest of the story here

list of top 10 tunes i’m currently jamming and you should too

i spend my money on either food or music. i think music might have the upper hand in terms of percentages actually. whether thats a good thing or not

one-COLDPLAY-VIVA LA VIDA
this is from one of the greatest bands ever. in my humble opinion. everybody of today compares their sound to u2. i think in 10 years everybody will compare their sound to being coldplay-esque. they’re that good. this is from their new album due out june 17, which they released a song from for free download a few weeks ago. now thats fan friendly.

two-JON FOREMAN-YOU’RE LOVE IS STRONG
this cat is crazy good. he sings back scripture, and in this case one of my favorite scriptures, parts of psalm 139. switchfoot front man. i’ve really been digging his seasonal ep stuff. can’t wait for the summer one.

three-DAVE BARNES-WHEN A HEART BREAKS
ok ok. i’m like a good ballad. this is a little more rockin than a ballad, but still a ballad in my mind nonetheless. this dude was insanely good as an indy artist, glad he has a national release finally.

four-GAVIN DEGRAW-IN LOVE WITH A GIRL
oh gavin. seems like yesterday when i saw your show along with a room full of junior high aged girls. this is a good track

five-COLBIE CAILLAT-REALIZE
i knew this would be a hit from the first time i heard it. had the pleasure of seeing her show last week. first time i’ve ever heard an artist say how much stage fright they had and nervous they were to perform. one of the few records i can say are quality front to back. and this is her freshmen project.

six-JOHN MAYER-SAY
“it’s better to say too much. than never to say what you need to say again.” i could just go ahead and incorporate his whole Continuum record in this selection. he is THAT good

seven-BLUETREE-GOD OF THIS CITY
i love this song. it paints a picture that has been in my mind for a good while. i think it does what few songs can do, reaches people where they are. i like tomlin’s version better. but bluetree needs to get their writing props

eight-ROBBIE SEAY BAND-RISE
“to hear the call is to give your love away. to give your life away.” this album front to back is incredible.

nine-DAVID CROWDER BAND-REMEDY
“let us be the remedy. let us bring the remedy.” enough said

ten-JEFF JOHNSON-RUIN ME
“ruin my life the plans that i’ve made. ruin desires for my own selfish gain. destroy the idols that have taken Your place. till its You alone i live for, You alone i live for.”

eleven-JONAS BROTHERS-WHEN YOU LOOK ME IN THE EYES
i couldn’t resist. remember what i said about ballads? this is a good song period. whoever were to sing it. it just so happened it was the one hit wonder jonas brothers who are terrible live but you cant tell because their fans are all twelve year old girls that scream the whole show thus you cant hear their terrible vocals.

twelve-HILLSONG UNITED-THE STAND
hands down. best worship song i’ve ever heard. rivals best song ever. i could name off about five hillsong stuff that are on that caliber. they’re incredible

thirteen-ONE REPUBLIC-STOP AND STARE
good song. good vocal. homeboy can write some tunes man. talented

fourteen-ANDY MELVIN-NOTHING COMPARES
i really dig this guy. assoc. worship pastor at austin stone. i guess he’s more like full time. he did breakaway for us most of the semester. seem like cool dudes and a good songwriter.

fifteen-JON MCLAUGHLIN-INDIANA
i really like this dude. another one who’s record is quality front to back. impressive

so much for top 10

cheers
