I have to admit it. I’m a GLEEk (a fan of the show GLEE on Fox).

Yes, it’s a show about high school Glee clubs.

Yes, I probably did make fun of those same kids back in High School.

Yes, I bought the first season on DVD for my wife for Christmas, but secretly wanted it myself. (Whoops! Hope she doesn’t read this…)

My first time my wife and I watched GLEE, we actually weren’t impressed. We were hearing great things about the show, and caught the second or third episode of Season 1, but was severely disappointed. In the episode, it had the Spanish teacher and Glee coach, Will Schuster starting some boy band with the other male teachers of the school. It didn’t have much of the students singing that episode, and I distinctly remember the “Bad Boy Teachers” singing Color Me Badd’s “I Wanna Sex You Up”…

Here’s an attempt to start up a new regular posting called the “Friday Music Confessional.”

I’ve heard this guy Cee Lo Green’s music for a while. After his song “Forget You” (the non-explict version of his song “F*#($* You”) was performed by Gweneth Paltrow on GLEE, it seemed to blow up everywhere. I don’t think I get through a day without hearing this song on the radio. Now he’s part of that show “The Voice” with some other talented music artists.

So… I have a confession to make. Though I’ve seen a video of Gnarles Barkley’s song “Crazy”, I didn’t realize that they were the same person, and thought “Gnarles Barkley” was a real person. I had no clue it was some duo, and thought, “Heh, Cee-Lo sounds a lot like that “Crazy” singer…“

… Yes, I can be completely oblivious to the obvious.

blah, for some reason, my posts don’t always show up. I knew I posted those last two entries, but they never came up…weird…

Anyways, just posting about Steve Fee’s CD again. He rocked the house at OneDay. On his CD he does a Jason Wade cover (If you don’t know who Jason Wade is, he’s the lead singer of Lifehouse =) ). The song is called Revolution Cry.

When passion takes on a purpose
And searching ones embrace the light
When skeptics find themselves down on their knees
You’ll know it’s here

When you hear a sound as loud as thunder
When you hear a cry that shakes the ground beneath you
When you hear a shout that shatters the darkness
You’ll know it’s here

When the lost find a name worth believing in
And the fallen get back on to their feet
When the broken start to dream again

Heh, well not really, the title just sounded cool and I hoped you would read it.

I love Steve’s CD. Go buy it now!! Click here to buy!. It’s just super. 11 songs, straight from Steve’s heart to God’s, (but songs we can all love and grab on to as well). I’m kinda debating on doing one of them this Sunday (that What Else Can I Do song).

This is week 2, of our 6 week series on The Purpose Driven Life. I’m leading worship along with the band, and the weeks focus is on Worship, so what better week to lead. I have a few songs in mind, and after meeting with Pastor Kevin today, I have a few more. I’m almost at a mix posistion to do two songs. One is that What Else Can I Do song by Steve Fee that I posted in my journal

Just ordered Steve Fee’s CD “Sacred Space” this week. (It came out tuesday actually, ordered it tuesday as well). It hasn’t come yet though. Lots of great songs on it. Out of like 12 songs, I haven’t heard like 3 of them, and the rest of them I love, and would love to incorporate into my worship when I lead. I jammed with JD and Helen today after worship practice and played them one of Steve’s songs called “Captivate.” Beautiful song.

I still remember when Lisa and I first heard it and tried to figure out all the words. We had to listen to it like 4 times to get it all (it was kinda hard to figure it out). He’s done that song probably about 3 times now at 7:22 (with this week being the 3rd). Good stuff, I can’t wait for the CD. Unfortunately, I don’t think they’ll
