Left Behind – Official Movie Teaser Trailer


Though I am not really a super and intense reader of fiction and non fiction books (this fact is something I am not that proud of, and will have to change in the near future!) one book series that I did read was the apocalyptic and disaster themed 12 book series “Left Behind”, with plenty of sequels and prequels.

Newsboys – We Believe

newsboys- we believe

One of my favourite songs of all time, made famous by the Michael Tait fronted Newsboys, ironically wasn’t written by them (instead written by worship leader Travis Ryan and Matt Hooper of LIFE Worship). Recorded especially for both Restart and My Hope: Songs Inspired by the Message and Mission of Billy Graham; this is a song that is certain to be a classic Newsboys melody (in spite of them not writing it). Any fan of the Newsboys, or even any fan of Michael’s singing style, ought to check out the song- with the music videos of the melody shown below.

It’s probably a fact that everyone knows, but The Voice is one of America’s most popular reality programs. Shown on NBC on Monday and Tuesday nights in the fall, in in its 7th season in the U.S; the show, where singers are judged initially solely on their voice rather than appearance as well; what you may not know is that it is extremely popular in Australia, where I am from, as well.

Matthew West – Hello My Name Is

matthew west- hello my name is

The society that we are in can be a tricky one. Everywhere we go and everywhere we turn, there’s always something or someone telling us what we should and ought to be. We watch the television, read the newspaper, check out yahoo from time to time, and there right before us are stories of people who have been successful. There before us are ideal scenarios- that you’ll only be happy if you have this, or that, or move interstate, overseas, or whatever you want to place in the blank that says, you’ll only be happy if you have _____.

Sidewalk Prophets – Keep Making Me

sidewalk prophets

One of my favourite music videos of this past few years was the LEGO music video of “SMS Shine” by the David Crowder*Band. Though lyrically simple, the visuals were nothing short of amazing and remarkable as the video was created by using a LITE-BRITE® branded toy board, as well as 700,000 pegs. It’s no mean feat to do what David Crowder and his friends did all by themselves, however what eventuated is truly a masterpiece. “SMS Shine” won an award at the Dove Awards in 2011, which was expected and satisfying as well. Fast forward 4 years later and Sidewalk Prophets have semi-used this technique to create the music video for “Keep Making Me”.

The Story Behind The Website Name (and how it relates to Third Day!)

third day

Let me tell you difficult and time consuming it is to find a good domain name for a new website (one that isn’t already taken), which is simple and easy to remember, that encompasses a number of elements of what you want to site to be about. Put it this way, this process of me thinking about starting a website started way back in September 2013, when I started investigating the process, and also brainstorming many names (I think about 20 names…)

MercyMe – Shake

mercyme 2014

MercyMe, one of my favourite bands of all time, recently released a music video for their song ‘Shake’, the first radio single from their most recent album Welcome To the New. The video, which premiered in November 2013, featuring the five members of the band singing in a diner and dancing 50s style, complete with the whole package of suits, weird dance moves, and a whole lot of criticism that comes along with making a music video (because frankly, whenever someone makes a video, there’s always positive and negative comments). Just looking through the comments on the youtube link page makes me understand more fully that there are some people who just want to comment negatively because they can. With comments like the dancing was lewd and suggestive, to other comments that felt the dancing was over the top, or the song wasn’t explicit enough when it comes to singing about Christ’s love; ‘Shake’ has possibly been one of the most controversial CCM songs within the last few months.
