It's too bad the name has to go down with the blog. I think it's my favorite blog name yet. I hope to find your wit someplace else then. Oh, and you had to bring up Old Yeller. I saw a commercial for it (yes, really) recently and it brought a lump to my throat. There are a few movies you never see more than once (like Schindler's List & Sophie's Choice) and that's one of them.

Thanks for the good read. See you at a spring concert!

Looking forward to What's Next!


Here's to the old and let's ring in the new. Hopefully someone has talked to you about the benefits of WordPress over Typepad though. Hint. Hint! =)


Your blog has been awesome-- kind of sad to see it go! Kind of sad to see that dog go too, but it had rabies and that's an incurable disease and well.... I don't really know where I'm going with this...your blog will be missed (sob, sniff, sniff-- dude, I need a tissue), and I really look forward to whatever you decide to post in the future -- Really interesting analogy-- a dog and a blog.


Buh-bye! It's been great!


Well I'll be sad to see it go. But I guess change is coming to America... in more ways than one :-)

I, too, will be sad to see this blog go. It is always a highlight of my day whenever you write something. Refardless of what the subject is you put your own little personal touch on what you write and make it interesting for all. As far as my own life, I would have never dreamed I would have gotten so hooked on all the neat online stuff you've showed us. Twitter is just awesome and I have made so many cool friends through it. My beloved Tumblr (lame as it may be)is the closest I come to a journal so for that I say thank you!

I do hope you keep the SRC around. If you really feel sad you can go back and check to see who you owe prizes too! Think "Cooter" and it will jog your memory!


There's nothing that helps getting interested in blogging again like starting a new blog.

Thanks for letting us keep up, Mark. Looking for you in the PNW some time soon.


Thanks for the good times. I will miss the blog.


I just want to Thank you- this blog was the first blog I ever read. Didn't even know what a blog was until ... what... late 2003 or so. So thank you- I actually dedicated my blog to you when I created mine. Anyway- its been great- thanks!


I'm a little sad that you are getting rid of this blog, but I think I understand. I'm in the middle of some major life changes, which I don't like at all, but unfortunately, are necessary.

I have good memories of your blog. I found it from a link on another blog. I had no idea who you were, wasn't familiar with Third Day, but I loved the name "This Guy Falls Down." I knew I had to follow you when you said that you liked the Sammy Hagar years of Van Halen and that one of your memories involved listening to "Rhinestone Cowboy." I sing that song when I'm blue. Besides you, I don't know anyone anywhere near my age that has heard of the song.

I really enjoyed the Summer Reading Club. It helped to keep me sane during some rough times. I had forgotten how easy it is to be engrossed in a good story.

Overall, I've enjoyed seeing the world through your eyes. It's been a fun ride. I wish you luck on your next adventure.


Call me old-fashioned, but I still have my blog. Twitter is great, but one liners are insufficient. :)

I might cry just like the end of the movie, IF you don't start something new. LOL But I am always looking forward to what you have to say.

God's blessings, and Merry Christmas!



Well, though I don't comment here, I follow this blog. Thank you for keeping it all these years. I've gotten some great book reccommendations from you! Will follow you in the other spots while waiting for the next big thing.


I've enjoyed this ride. Will be around wherever you decide to pop up again.

But as Traci mentioned...you left the Bookclub souls in the lurch...man we worked hard this past summer trying to read and write reviews...can't I get a concert ticket or something for it??? ;)


So "This Guy" has "Falls Down" for good. R.I.P

Blogs are like our scrapbooks, aren't they. Very hard to do away with.


It takes a brave man to do the right thing and embrace change. I walk to the edge of the stage and in the way you have done so many times before, I salute you.

Adam Riggins

Man, I have been coming here since '03, so if you do put 'er down, it will be a sad day!

Might as well. Blogging is hard work. I have wanted to start one up for a while now but I just can't bring myself to do it. Here's an idea. Why just do a photo blog. Take photos w/ your phone and upload them straight to your new blog. No explanation or text. Just photos and comments. Hey I think I'll do that. It's my idea. You can't have it. J/K.

BTW: The 1 and only time that I saw you guys live was in 1996 at Atlanta fest. That first album was huge! I mean finally Christian music had their own Hootie and the Blow Fish. J/K. Your music has been inspirational in my life. Thank you for making it.


Well, this is a fine time to pull the plug! I just found the blog...believe it or not, not because of the Third Day thing, either (though I do have at least one of the albums!).

I think I found it through a comment you made on twitter about a band that I also liked. Weird how the whole social media thing works, isn't it?

That being said, it doesn't seem like too many blogs have a long life. They serve their purpose and the authors move on.

Looking forward to what you come up with next.


Bro, you got me started on typepad (over 4 yrs). Thanks! I too almost pulled the plug a month or so ago. Actually I was going to transfer it over to another service provider, but once I made the change, I just couldn't do it. Haha, that sounds so sad:-)

With Posterous, Twitter, etc., I'm too in a season of change. One that has me thinking about dropping all of it honestly. I'm sure I'll keep plugging along though, just at a slower pace.

I become bored with almost everything, which is something that I've been workin on. Time for me to change too.

    Third Day Weblog

    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 :) (*****)
