The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

…but you will be able to download it from the iTunes store.

Musicians at large are totally locked into the Apple ecosystem (me too). Watching the CompassionArt DVD a while ago really brought it home. The sad thing is this probably isn’t even product placement…

So many Christian artists consuming the fruit of Steve Job’s labours. Wait. Wasn’t it an apple that got us all into trouble in the first place?*

*That’s right Bible moths – the bible says “fruit” it never specifies the kind. Could have been a banana. Or a whole fruit salad

A great redubbing of One Direction’s Gotta Be You video

But my favourite by the Bad Lip Reading guys is still the NFL (American Football) clip compilation

Who Needs Comments?


Art is not born in a vacuum…

but it’s not born inside a tornado full of shrieking trolls, either

Do we need to encourage people to comment on everything we create? Oatmeal has a funny take on it

The Eglon Song Breaks China

A friend who’s a long time fan of The Eglon Song told me his brother had just preached a sermon in China and played the congregation this song. He said they liked it. I can only assume his subject was either Judges chapter 3 or the terrible state of christian music in the UK.

Either way it prompted me to dig out this old video version I recorded when I just moved into Shabby Road and was learning how to use iMovie. Enjoy.

Dr Who Rocks

Dr Who is really popular with people I teach but unlike most shows they keep changing the flippin’ theme tune! If you want to hear how the music has changed over the 50 or so years check this out…

And here’s a nice rocked up version for you

There’s A Llama Where????


Here’s a link to a song by FAWMstar TV’s Kyle that really popular with some of my pupils. The chorus riff is as sticky as glue. (right click here to download the song)

I was heading down the stairs in the middle of the night
Thought I’d make a big ol sammich ’cause Dagwood is hella tight.
I opened my refrigerator. Much to my surprise.
There was a mighty llama, but a teeny tiny size.
I don’t know how it got there and I don’t know where it’s been.
But I think the llama’s eaten all my off-brand gelatine.
I have so many questions, but a llama cannot speak.
I tried to ask a few and in response it took a leak.

There’s a llama inside my fridge
There’s a llama inside my fridge
Am I freakin’? Yeah, just a smidge.
There’s a llama inside my fridge

I wondered what the damage was and so I took a peek.
The llama ate up all the pizza I saved from last week.
Not a big loss there, but I kept looking around.
It ate up the cannolis from the other side of town.
It ate my jams and jellies and it ate up all the steak.
To defrost it I had left it there. I guess that’s a mistake.
It ate up all my eggs, in fact I think it ate them whole.
This little tiny llama’s gotten way out of control!

There’s a llama inside my fridge…

My food was all but eaten and my sandwich dreams were dashed.
I guess I’m goin’ hungry ’cause I ain’t got any cash.
It made me super angry so I tried to pick it up.
The llama tried to bite me, so I said enough’s enough.
I tried to use some salad tongs to pick the llama up.
It ate them right in front of me! That little guy was tough!
I used a stick of dynamite to blow it all away.
My fridge might be destroyed, but I’ll save millions anyway!

There’s a llama inside my fridge

Here’s another fabulous song by TV’s Kyle

Music For One Apartment And Six Drummers

Posted this a long time ago but it’s worth revisiting – rather than a random Youtube clip it’s actually an award winning Swedish film by Ola Simonsson & Johannes Stjärne Nilsson called Music for one apartment and six drummers.

Got your popcorn? Good. Enjoy…

What do you do when your drummer gets raptured?

Just carry on.


Random thoughts (a la Matt Redmond)

1) It’s OK he’s still smiling.
2) Boy I hope that song has some doctrinal content in the verses
3) I’m sure this freebie from Sovereign Grace does (free mp3 download of Hail the Day)

Is this the ultimate driving song?

This video from American actor and director Julian Smith(a full-time maker of viral videos) takes a little while to get it’s groove on so be patient and you’ll be rewarded with a ‘banging’ tune.
