This morning I saw a funny tweet: "Watching the Olympics just reminds of how much talent I don't have."
THEN, I came across this site where you can at least pretend to be an Olympian. I plugged in my stats, and found out I could be a Shot Putter.
Curious to know what you'd be doing in London this week? Here's the link to find out: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-19050139
It's kinda funny to think the guys who give all us all those deep, somber songs like "I Can Only Imagine" and "The Hurt and the Healer" can also come up with some brilliant, hilarious videos.
Here's one of the latest from Mercy Me's "Cover Tunes Grab Bag." LOVE the cameos from Lecrae, Canon, and DJ Official too!
I'm typing this not even knowing if I am going to hit "save" so that you'll read this. It's kinda touchy, and I like my job.
You may have heard that Dan Cathy, president of Chick Fil A (please PLEASE expand to Las Vegas!!) has been taking heat for his stance on gay marriage. (Here's the transcript.)
Why does it seem like 90% of the time an "outspoken Christian" is in the news, it's for something deemed "unpopular," or "out of touch" or racist/homophobic/etc.?
I can. NOT. Stop. Laughing.
Nearly spit out my Captain Crunch when I saw this earlier today.
I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did!
My former home state, Colorado, has been through a lot this summer. Too much.
Last night, a person with evil in him shot 71 people at a movie theater in the Denver area. You've probably heard all about it.
Few of us know what to say, other than that we are of course praying for everyone touched by last night's maddening act of violence.
This morning, I heard somebody say the shooter is "somebody 'the Church' didn't reach. Satan did instead."
So a bunch of our listeners and SOS Radio DJ's got together to create this really awesome remix of the new Toby Mac song, "Me Without You."
Grab it here if ya want it!
If you have not heard, it feels like a good half of Colorado is on fire. The picture below was taken in daylight, in Colorado Springs. The company I worked for prior to joining SOS Radio is headquartered there, and they have been told to evacuate.
In fact, tens of thousands of people (to put it lightly) have also been evacuated. Tonight, they'll search for a place to rest their heads. They'll wonder if they will ever see their home again. Their family. Their friends. (My wife's uncle and cousin are among the many who have been told to leave their homes behind.)
I'm not really into "Hallmark Holidays" like Mother's Day or Valentine's Day or National Karaoke Week. OR, Father's Day. My family has been told repeated not to get me anything this year. Unless it's a hammock. But we don't have a yard big enough for one, so to my wife Jennifer: I am not dropping a hint. Not this time, anyhow.
I have been living the "glamorous life" these past few weeks since rejoining the SOS Radio team. (Backstory: I joined SOS in 2008, but tried another job out in 2010. Now I am back. :)
I have been flying from Colorado to SOS every Sunday night, then flying back home on Fridays to spend weekends with my wife and kids in Colorado. Once we landed a new home close to SOS, the Jet Fueled Commutes would cease.
