Four (Random Things) for Friday

Ok, while I know each of you looks to this weekly post for the very best in music, I’m making a slight departure from my normal routine.  Instead of four of the finest for your listening enjoyment, I’m putting up four things that I found interesting this week.

Here goes…

1)  dalton ghetti – This stuff is pretty fascinating.  I spoke this week on the intimate nature of God’s creative work.  I think these photos capture that idea some.

2) Man Crisis” – Kind of hard to top the pencil art, but saw this video a few days ago and after a string of posts on man-stuff, this one sort of slapped me in the face.  I’m not buying everything he’s selling, but at least the video is well done.

3) 180° South – A good friend passed this doc/movie my way this week.  And given my love for mountains and such, they had me at “Patagonia.”

The idea is cool.  The story was a bit thin.  The message was simplistic, vapid, and blunt.  But the cinematography was incredible!  The whole time I’m watching, I’m thinking, “Who is the Bad A filming all this?”  I wasn’t even a little surprised when the credits rolled to discover that Jimmy Chin was one of the men behind the camera.  Oh yeah, and the soundtrack is slammin’ too.

4) Great Cover – For all you Journey fans out there (and honestly, who isn’t a Journey fan?), here is a cover of one of their all time classics.

Clem Snide – Faithfully (Journey Cover)

Bonus – I feel guilty for not giving you the goods on music, so here’s a little foretaste of what’s to come from good ol’ Sufjan Stevens.

Sufjan Stevens – I Walked

He just released an EP entitled All Delighted People.  So far, there are a couple of standouts for me.  This track is off a full-length album, The Age of Adz, that he’ll be releasing sometime this fall.

Happy weekend!
