Who is this Jamin guy anyway?
I am the husband of one and the father of nine. I was created to sing, to worship, to encourage, and to be steady. I am the Owner & Executive Director of Trinity Arts Center, a multi-disciplinary Arts Center in Eastern Tennessee, and the President of Trinity Arts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization focused on funding arts education and performance. I've been involved with four music projects in my life -- Hot Pink Turtle, Spin Radio, Stand Like Stone, and of course, Jamin Rathbun.

2 Samuel 6:14
David, wearing a linen ephod, danced before the LORD with all his might.

I know. I know... David's dancing was the result of a very special occassion (the return of the Ark of the Covenant) but -- I'm still inspired by the image of the King, the highest authority figure in all the land, dressed up in either his underwear or a priests garment (depending on how you translate) and dancing before the LORD with all his might.

You know what? That is how I want to praise God. I want to sing songs at the top of my lungs. I want to dance around. I want to smile. I want to laugh. I don't want to stand still. I don't want to sit down. I don't want to rest my hands on the chair (or pew) in front of me. I don't want to look tired. I want to erupt with emotion. I want to cry because God is so good. I want my kids (and the people standing around me) to smile when they see me praise God. I want the people 10 rows in front of me to hear me sing these songs about how good my God is, about how great He is, about how strong and mighty and powerful and fair and patient and just and absolutely everything He is. That is what I want my praise to look like.

Yeah. Yeah... I'm sure a few of you are going to be a bit uncomfortable with the big 6'3" guy dancing around, singing at the top of his lungs but... You're just going to have to learn to live with it. There are a lot of times where I'll cater to your fuddy-duddiness but not this time. You can complain that it's too loud and you can whisper to your husband about how shameful it is. You can giggle or you can move to another seat. You can deal with in any way you'd like but I am going to praise God like David praised God... WITH ALL MY MIGHT!

So... To all you praise pretenders out there... The praise train is a-coming! Get on board or get out of the way! = )

What's up with the BBC?
I don't know what the deal is with the BBC building mega-complex and cool online games but... They've done it again with Death Sakkara.

Last time I played a game from the BBC, my appreciation for the game design quickly faded as I realized how tedious it was to chat with virtual friends on a virtual forum once a day for 2 weeks (yawn). I've only played one episode from this new game from the BBC but, from what I've seen, it promises to keep my interest to the finish.

Death Sakkara challenges you to solve the mystery of a girl whose disappearance is surrounded by an Indiana Jones style storyline, impressive creative design, and just enough challenge to make it interesting. I'm actually going to play through episode 2 as soon as I upload this post so... Have a great weekend! I'll see you next week.

P.S. I've posted a follow up with a few helpful cheats, if you're into that kind of thing. = )
