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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Well I just woke up and read some cool stuff in my devotional. I’m on like week 6 or 7, and it’s talking this week about Community. Community within church, friends, etc. Todays was pretty cool, because it talked about how we put on masks in life, and when people ask “How are you?” we always reply with “I’m fine.” While in reality, we may not really be fine, and …

So a lot of people are going to “The Go Show” tommorrow. It’s a christian concert with Audio Adrenaline and Mercy Me head lining, as well as Kutless and the Swift are performing. (BTW: Kutless is my favorite alternative band right now, heh, they’re wicked cool, and in terms of Texans, they rock my face off (more on that below). Anyways, just wanted to let any of the readers of …

Here’s a site where it describes different kinds of guitar pedals and what they do, using the references of monkies…. current mood: kooky

It’s true. Don’t believe that dumb news that says “Young People are causing CD’s to go up in price, because they burn everything.” I was at work today, and two ladies were talking amoungst each other when I was checking CD’s for labels. One asked the other if they had heard this certain group or cd before. She said she hadn’t. She said, it’s ok, I’ll burn you a copy. …

So I was gonna talk about guitars, specifically custom guitars. I bought some new CDs from Independent Bands recently, and included in one was a nice 15% off coupon on a custom guitar company. The company is Mayes Guitars and is run by John Mayes, a frequent goer of the Shane Barnard Project Forums (BTW: if you want some people to debate with, THIS IS THE PLACE! lol). Anyways, John …

hahaha. I was just checking CMCentral.com (a chrisitan music news site), and someone posted this in their Q&A section: Q: Where did Rebecca St. James (actual last name “Smallbone”) get her stage name; why did she not use Smallbone?–Tyler A: Many artists record under a stage name, and the reasons are usually marketing related, as is the case with Rebecca. I guess the ad wizards (old SNL reference) at Forefront …

hah, well listening to bands like the David Crowder Band and Exit 10, it really wants me to have a band with a set group of musicians to play with. Ones who most of all love to worship, and also have great talent. So yeah, If you’re interested in being part of the Randall Wong Band, let me know, haha. =P I just downloaded like 20 new mp3s from Thad’s server. …

Well a few days ago, a couple came up to Teena and myself, asking about that group POD, why we sell them, and if they’re really Christian. We answered them about how they are Christian, and how their songs talk about God, and how often times in concert they talk about God, or thank Him for doing things. Well this couple said all this stuff about POD. That symbol that …

Well this week I got the latest packet from Sixsteps Records. If ya didn’t know, I help by being a Road Rep for them. Promoting their up’n’coming cds, word of mouth grassroots kinda stuff. (Oh, and if ya didn’t know, Sixsteps puts out the music of Passion, as well as the Passion Worship Leaders, Charlie Hall, David Crowder, and Chris Tomlin). Anyways, the latest packet was actually just some stuff …

Wow, the 2nd day of his CD release, and we’ve already sold about 15 or more copies. We sold 10 yesterday, as I recorded, and I’m anxicously awaiting to see how many we sound today. Looks like the CD is doing extremely well. Well I found out today through some other Sixsteps Reps that Chris Tomlin did buy a Chet Atkins SST guitar. This story goes back a few …

Hi there. No, I haven’t died. If I did, you wouldn’t be reading this (or maybe you would, but I didn’t know there were computers connected to the internet in heaven.) Anyways, here goes my little entry. The CD project is coming along. We’ve been doing mostly recording for guitar, and some instrument stuff, and just started doing vocals recently. Tommorrow night we’re supposed to be working on some …

Wow, this post is mostly for Wade “Poopman” Chan, but check out Rivendell Music where a few of the top Christian acts record their albums. Check out the downloads page where they have a few songs (including one by Chris Tomlin that is on the album, but done RADICALLY different from the album version). Neato. current music: Beautiful Mystery – Caedmon’s Call

Well the recording is nicely on it’s way. I did the guitar tracks for “Our Love is Loud” though it’s not one of the original songs I picked, I do really like the song, and may include it with this AACF CD (if it doesn’t go on there, it definately will go on my own cd, hehehe). I figured out the chords a few nights ago when 722 did …

! Hehe, yes the news is, that I bought the Chet Atkins SST model guitar. I bought it actually the week of Thanksgiving, that tuesday before hand I believe. It ends up that it was the same day that I recieved my Taylor last year (It was shipped to my parents house the tuesday before thanksgiving last year). I’ve been playing with it a lot, and I really like it. …

Lol, most of you who read this have no idea to what that title in green letters means. =P It’s a guitar! hehe, big surprise right? Well I was at guitar center today picking up some Hot Rods (drum sticks) for the youth dept. and I stopped into the acoustic guitar room for abit. Now this Chet Atkins technically isn’t an acoustic guitar…but sorta is. It’s a hollow-body, meaning that …

Reading through some Live Journals of Chris …

Well looks like the days of Napster may be over. I tried looking for some stuff today and nothing showed up on ALL of my searches. So either Napster just isn’t working anymore, or they’re blocking a whole lotta stuff. Blah, oh well. I found some really good mp3s of worship stuff that Steve Fee and Candi Pearson did in their Big Stuf Band or Exit 10. Sounds really good, …

Brent brought up a good point today in a reply that Musicianfriend sells then (at 539$, eeeep) but with a 45-day return policy. Course I would have to pay the shipping back…but I think I’ll wait until summer to buy one, ahhhh. Then all next year it’ll be doing camps and such and ministry to pay it off? lol. Anyways, it was kind of funny that Brent mentioned Musician’s Friend, …

Hehe, just sitting back and watching the Simpsons on UPN! w000t! What a great show. Now you guys all get to read about my boring life, isn’t it great? hehehe. I learned how to play Psalm 145 today, which is by a great guitarist/vocalist/worship leader from Texas, Shane Barnard. It’s a really cool song, with a neat chorus and great dynamics to the whole song. Ask me to play it …
