TODAY’S CLIP: So today’s learning video is not musical, BUT IS HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH MUSIC (specifically music in the church). The best way to understand this video is to just watch it. This is EXTV with Pastor G. Craige Lewis. This is Episode 9 titled “The Gospel Music Industry”. Talk about some enlightening stuff for the CHRISTIAN MUSICIAN! Enjoy!
As a musician, 90% of what you do is listening. Music is too much of a universal language to get stuck on one dialect. Therefore, today’s blog is dedicated specifically for you to LISTEN (to the clip provided), EXPAND (your thinking on music in a way that you may not have considered before), AND ROCK NOW (with more musical knowledge added to your repertoire)!

Usually on Friday’s I do the “Time to L.E.A.R.N.” series, but I’m going to hold off for the moment in lieu of this weeks overall subject on “attention span” (or the lack thereof). Don’t worry, there’s still a video involved. I came across this TED talks series about content and the speaker refers to music as part of his overall argument that content has gotten dumber over the decades. This is “People are Getting Smarter, Content is Getting Dumber” presented by Alexander Macris. Check it out for yourself and see if you agree.

So I’ve been in the email game for a long time, but it seems that I’ve been in the email hoarding game for an even longer time. Therefore, I’ve decided to share some of the more funny and interesting emails that I’ve received over the years guaranteed to either (1) make you laugh or (2) say “Wow!”. HAPPY SUMMER EVERYBODY!
This isn’t an email, but a link to a website. Here’s the back story behind it.
I was researching steam engines after watching the recently cancelled NBC sci-fi show “Revolution” (the most enjoyable show on NBC since “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”). Then that got me to researching perpetual motion machines and THEN that led me to a hyperlink that simply said “The Museum of Non-Working Inventions”. With curiosity piqued, I clicked on it and found man’s failed attempts to improve the human race through technology. While scientifically sound, not practical or (in some cases) functional in real life.
Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself and be surprised.
