A million words can describe a minute. I use a lot less.
This is a song that I wrote about my lip. What happen to my lip? Well, you'll just have to listen to the song. Okay, Okay, it really didn't happen the way expressed in the song, but it would be neat if the song was true. Just listen. Laugh at it, whatever.My Lip
I wrote this song, basing it off of Psalm 89. It came to me during a quiet time that I was having. I hope it can minister to you as it did to me.Psalm 89
I am actually hoping to be recording some more things soon. I have some good ideas and have some songs that I have been working on with Jon Daly.
I have been working on some songs lately, songs I've written and others that I have just recorded. Well, maybe I have only written two of them. But, you should take a look at a few of them.fall_on_me.mp3
-- a song by Spooky Tuesday, pretty cool worship song.
It looks like "Nature Man" will continue shooting this week. Hurray! It has been nearly a month and a half since we last shot a scene from the short. I hope that some preliminary cuts can be made of scenes, so that I am able to compose some music for the scenes. We will just have to see how things go. I really hope that this summer doesn't turn out to be a no-creative-endeavor for me. I want to create a collaborative piece of art.

. I'm going to be using this blog as my media blog, giving a sort of current update on my music and other things that I'm doing with Random Idiot Productions. I have updated information on music scores for example.
Sorry I have been so busy with work and our short film, "Nature Man." It's coming along, slowly. I'm hoping that I can really get a musical composition groove going and write the music for the movie. I felt a little stale lately writing music; not really sure why. Anyway, it's late and I want to sleep. This post will be cut short.
I was at church the other day, either Sunday or Wednesday, because those are the usual days that I go to church. Anyway, the pastor was reading from a pamphlet printed by the National Day of Prayer, which had quotes and facts about our country's past and present Christian brothers and sisters. The pamphlet contained their efforts to preserve Christianity in our great nation. But, the one thing that really sparked some interest was when the pastor was using a quote from the pamphlet to illustrate how far we have digressed from the grace
that our forefathers bestowed, upheld, or had. He, the pastor, quoted Benjamin Franklin, who, during the Constitutional Convention, instructed to the writers and to the delegates of the convention that they should open each meeting with prayer
. I'm pretty sure the delegates of the Constitutional Convention would have taken the advice from this seasoned veteran of law and of politics, Benjamin Franklin. But, what really made me think, was when the pastor said that our country is so far from what Benjamin Franklin spoke about at that convention: we don't pray before congressional sessions and our country has fallen from its Christian roots. (I'm not quoting the pastor by any means.) However, if you look at what Franklin said and believe that the delegates of his time prayed that God would instruct them and guide their reason in composing our nation's constitution, then our constitution was created with God's helping hand. Thus, the separation of church and state was crafted by men who had been aided by God. Why do many Christians find that this separation to be so bad? God guided the reason of many great men; men, who would craft and fashion our nation to its glory. However, I don't want to say that God is the creator of our constitution, because it has many faults. But for someone to say that because of us not having prayer in congressional sessions, or not having prayer in public schools, or not allowing teachers to spread their faith to their students, and that these reasons are clear evidence to say that our nation's fabric, once held by Christian ideals, is fraying and is falling apart, I find that assumption to be bit absolute. If our forefathers crafted our constitution with the help of God through prayer every morning before session began, then I feel and I hope that our laws, especially ones felt to be most controversial, were created under the aid of God.
