This isn’t a funny post, just a thought. Who would you think the best CURRENT band is in Christian music? Leave out Mullins and DCTalk… and I’ll throw in a curveball No members of dcTalk either…
Reason I ask is that in general my musical taste is stuck. I have my few artists that still make great new music for my iPod, but it is mainly filled with my youth. MxPx, Better Than Ezra, Spice Girls, Audio Adrenaline… I need some new tunes.
To start the discussion…
The Best Band in Christian Music is – Sanctus Real
It may be controversial to ever call out a love for a band this deeply, but I really love them. They are great people, and the music they have made has touched so many parts of my life personally and professionally. Lyrically they connect with every bit of my emotion, and when necessary the music rocks so hard that it makes me want to use it as pro-wrestling introduction.
So Sanctus is mine… how about yours?
Some of you have to know what I am talking about. I usually wear a nice polo to work every day. However, today was one of those days that happens a few times a year for me –
I stumble out of bed
Take a shower
Open my closet
Notice that my closet has nothing clean that is work appropriate
Today I am rocking a totally awesome Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure t-shirt from Universal Studios Florida. It is very classy.
It is one of those shirts that I have to explain the situation to everyone. I have walked around telling everyone that “I’m on my reserves.” I just feel like I am doing something wrong – it isn’t even a really cool t-shirt. My chest tells the world that I am a “MOST BODACIOUS DUDE” and I dig large photos of Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter.
I know this post have absolutely nothing to do with faith and media, but I wanted to share it. I guess I should post something Christian related…
This blog is what dreams are made of… those really strange dreams where you wake up
frightened, yet can’t remember any details.
I couldn’t think of a better time to start a blog about entertainment. As far as I can tell there is nothing going on in the news (other than John Cena becoming WWE Champion.U CANT SEE ME!)
I know the title Christianese (like Chinese, Japanese etc) may throw some of you off, so let me explain. Christianese is known as the language that Christians speak to each other. It features special coded phrases that the “outsiders” don’t understand and are often mocked.
My version of Christianese is quite the opposite. I don’t think that the definition of an American Christian can be put in a box. We may have created our own pop culture that represents our faith, but the diversity is unmatched. The fans of Bill Gaither at the performing art centers aren’t going down to the local rock club to see a night of Christian hardcore. It is the same Message with a totally different audience.
The posts I make will mainly focus on general pop culture and entertainment . We will explore the way our Christian lives can be effected positively by Christian and mainstream media. Just a fair warning, I may need to give you a guide just to get all the pop culture references.
I happen to think everyone needs to have current updates on the original cast of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and dcTalk reunion rumors.
UPDATE: I was just told the U.S. Military killed Osama Bin Laden. Maybe we should have waited a week for this thing? This blog may get canned quicker then the Paul Reiser Show.
