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.
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.
