Yes once again we have the Postmodern Jukebox off their album Fake Blues. Frank X. Turk pointed me to this cover and I am glad he did.
Maybe you’ve heard this one before, we don’t use creeds or confessions in our church we just follow Christ. Of course the rejoinder to that is which Christ? The Mormon Christ? The Christ of the Watch Tower Society? The modalist Christ of the Oneness Pentecostals? There is a need to define what we mean especially since we live in a society that defines things subjectively.
That is why for this Thursday I have a video of Mark Dever talking about “No Creed but Christ”
So I see this commercial all the time where this family takes a road trip because of the dying request of their grandfather who wanted to see America but time and other things made it impossible. And this is the song playing as this car commercial does its level best to wring all the emotional content it can and maybe bring a tear to your eyes.
So I give you Mike Massé, Sterling Cottam, and Jeff Hall singing America.
Well now, things are improving health wise at the house. Mrs. Keachfan is able to walk around a little but like anything time is the number one healer.
So it comes to this Queen’s song, ‘Killer Queen’ was on the radio and well I was humming it all day much to the annoyance of my co-workers. So I found an enterprising young man who covered the song uniquely.
So I went to Guardians of the Galaxy volume two over the weekend, and yes next Monday there will be a review. So like the first movie they had a great sound track in this one. And one of the songs was this originally done by Cat Stevens or as he is known now Yusuf Islam. And I found this cover done by Jun and I think he did a good job.
Well we’re going to talk about technology today, and to get things started here is a self returning ball.
I am of two minds about this, first it is cool without a doubt you can’t deny it. But what about the tossing the ball with your friends/kids. I mean this is the “I am playing by myself I don’t need anyone else”. This could be just an outdoor video game.
Staying on technology her is the latest medical break through an artificial womb.
So the reason this has been developed is because of premature babies with the idea that they can go back into the artificial womb but well see I read science fiction. And current science fiction writers tend to go on and on about the wonders of the artificial wombs and how they have freed women from the burden of motherhood. See the thing is even if the original intent is to help premature children live it won’t stop there. No ultimately this will be used to further separate the act of intercourse and the act of conception. So that they will become two separate things ultimately disassociated with each other so that what God has created to be together will by man become apart.
Speaking of in-vitro children. What happens when you have a bunch of children frozen after in-vitro fertilization and you have all the children you want? Well why not take those embryos and turn them into keepsake jewelry? I am not kidding. Baby Bee Hummingbird, an Australian company, will take the embryos and transform them into necklaces and rings like this:
Yes that is an embryo straw just in case you’re wondering. Making jewelry out of people is wrong in so many ways I can only equate it to when they made lampshades out of the skin of dead Jews killed in the concentration camps. And as heinous as lampshades of skin are, there is an exponential increase of evil when it comes to making jewelry from babies.
So from jewelry let’s go to a film, like that segue? Well you won’t. Joss Whedon the guy behind the Avenger movies, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer made a film for Planned Parenthood. You can go watch it here: Unlocked Joss Whedon video supporting Planned Parenthood.
Well here are two really great videos in response to Joss Whedon’s film.
And lastly we have a PSA from the White Horse Inn: How to read the bible.
That is it for this Frenetic Friday.
So they had 2014’s Georgefest on TV celebrating the work of George Harrison, and if you don’t know who that is go ask your father or perhaps your grandfather. Back to the topic. In it they had Weird Al Yankovic sing What is life. And in a performance that is uniquely his he managed to keep this song in my head for four days straight. I give you Weird Al:
Continuing on with the theme of artists you don’t normally hear on Christian Radio we have The Choir.
These alt rockers have been the inspiration for bands such as Switchfoot and Sixpence None the Richer but it hasn’t translated to radio play. So take a listen and if you want to know more go to the website: The Choir
So I was pointed to this article that talks about bands that aren’t in the mainstream. The 77’s are what can be called a classic rock band similar to the Beatles, ELO, or U2 and definitely worth a listen.
Frank Turk had a Beatles quiz on Facebook and I of course had to take it. I got a 100 on the test and this Earworm in my head.
