Inspiration...


Currently Reading:
Sailing Between the Stars: Musings on the Mysteries of Faith . By Steven James
I totally identify with this guys writing style -- a generous mix of story-telling, scripture and poetry. And the story told is uplifting, convicting and thought provoking (as it always is). Highly recommended.




Currently Listening To:
Radiohead . In Rainbows
The story surrounding this release matches the music itself. Out of thin air, the band posted a message on its website that said: "Well, the new album is finished, and it's coming out in 10 days." I mean, everyone knew they were working on a new album, but there wasn't even talk about a release date. On top of that, the band released this album in downloadable form and let its fans decide how much they wanted to pay for the download! I paid $5 for the ten 160-bit MP3's that make up the album -- the highlights of which are the haunting "All I Need" and "Videotape"; as well as the upbeat and, dare I say it, almost fun "Jigsaw Falling Into Place". A quality Radiohead album that focuses on music (as opposed to experimentation).

good analysis of Rainbows. always something intriguing about a Radiohead release.

there is a second disc available only with the box set of Rainbows... has 8 more songs. hopefully that will become available later on. i'd like to hear it, too.

And by the way, the book I gave you for Christmas a couple years ago? Finally got around to reading it this week.
Can you hear my soul? Its singing again.
