an honest question

July 22, 2008 at 2:55 am (Uncategorized)

So lately i’ve had this question on my mind…is it better to specialize in very few things or even one thing in particular, or have experience in a lot of different areas?

Here’s why i ask. I’m a guy that likes to experience a lot of things. Maybe it’s because i think there are a lot of awesome things (or blessings if you will) that God has made possible for us to take part in while were here. When i think about it like that, i find myself in a place where i want to see the entire world, meet tons of different people, and try lots of new things. On the flip side, when you spend a lot of time in many different areas, it makes it really tough to be REALLY good at something. The bible doesn’t really speak to either train of thought. It mainly says WHATEVER you do, work at it with all your heart, as unto the Lord, and not to man. So i wonder which of these trains of thought is best? I’m sure its just an opinion question and we need both types of people in the world, so i don’t know…any words from the wise?

All i have to say is watch the trailer…how did we get so lucky as to have Dwight (Rainn Wilson) star in a movie as a drummer?!?!?!  I can’t wait for Aug. 1!

A special day/weekend

July 7, 2008 at 3:09 am (Uncategorized)

Well it’s late Sunday night and i’m officially spent; but for good reason.  This morning i got back from an incredibly fun weekend in Pittsburgh with some of the old crew from Penn State and then some, to celebrate the 4th.  Even though it was Pittsburgh (one of the top ten dirtiest cities in the country…right Brian?) we had an awesome time at Kennywood, hanging out on jessie’s patio, watching the fireworks, and playing volleyball.  I’m always up for weekends like that.

Today was also pretty special (besides the obvious…).  I had the the privilege of playing at Frontline for my first time and if there is any word to describe the experience, it would be humbling.  Now i have to say that i truly miss the team from PSU and the Port and love playing with them more then anything, however, i think they will understand what i’m about to say.  Playing at frontline tonight has been one of the first times that i’ve ever played on a team where i was one of the “less talented” members of the group, and i say that with no intentions of being cocky.  It was very edifying and challenging and I’m looking forward to having my butt kicked musically some more this year.  I’m alos looking forward to being able to play with such a state of the art and talented sound team!  The service was also really cool and new and has been the focus of all my team’s work this past week (we’re doing a series on worship and would be worth podcasting).  I’m really looking forward to seeing where it goes over the next 2 weeks.  I get to do the same set again tomorrow night at Arlington with the same band and i’m looking forward to that as well.  Anyway, thanks to everyone who made this weekend extra special.  I love you all!

Thats My Dad

July 3, 2008 at 2:47 am (Uncategorized)

So i heard and confirmed something hilarious the other day and thought i should blog about it.  My Dad likes to be up on the latest technology.  He’s backed-up all the family photos (over 20,000 slides, prints, and negatives), put all the old VHS tapes and DV tapes into a catologed DVD collection, and kept up on the latest computer equipment.  Recently he has been very interested in getting into blue ray discs and such.  On the advice of a trusted friend, he purchased an apparatus to view them on his sweet plasma screen…..a PS3….’nuff said.

So awesome…I laughed very hard…cause he has never liked video games 🙂

(unless they had educational purpose….right Reed kids?)
