« The metal kick, over? | Main | 10 things you'd hear in Atlanta, but not Cardiff »

Well said. I am glad to be in the groundbreaking stages with Randy as he launches his vision. I hope it catches fire.


This Providence, The Fold ... some don't say a lot from the stage, but either their lyrics do, or they manage to reach so many just one on one. I've been impressed with a few. Jon Foreman certainly impresses me quite a lot. It has to be a really tough call sometimes. I'm really amazed at how many Christians are in the mainstream and indie markets now. Before I started going to some of the "secular" shows, I had no idea. I'm sure they must also struggle with what to say when and to whom. I'm anxious to hear what comes of this in the long run.

God bless you always! =D


Right on Mark! Awesome post.

Ohh Ohhh! I am an aspiring Christian Artist!!!
I agree...we need think tanks and development centres. You should chat with Barb Risi and see what she has set up. Talk about inspiring!!! Of course you already know her work ;)

Roaring Lambs...sounds interesting. Will give it a look see.

That was a great day....that brainstorming day.

Today, I took three people to tour the 124 acres who share our dream of the artist development center called Kalein.


It was an exciting and possibly historic day. Let's see what happens in the next few weeks.

See you and the lovely ladies this weekend in Hot 'Lanta!

Thanks for joining me around the cooler today. See ya next Wednesday 'round the Watercooler.



First . . . I really enjoy your Watercooler Wednesday posts . . .

"My buddy Mac likes to tell the story of a Christian act he saw headline at a big venue in Atlanta awhile back. This artist had gained massive appeal with mainstream audiences. And basically said nothing from stage."

So my contention of late has been that Christ's best witness is Christ Himself. Why do we believe we need to open our mouths to witness or bring glory to God? Sometimes it's more about what do DON'T do or say that speaks louder than what we do and allows the Holy Spirit to speak for Himself.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
