Our first episode is live over at our hosting site, Super Candid @ Liberated Syndication
. Most of the main podcast news will be here, but since Livejournal requires podcast hosting to be done via voice posts and we don't feel like going to the trouble of making conference calls to record our podcast. Althought,that doesn't sound like such a bad idea, since I could then record my podcast from work, and theoretically get paid to be a podcaster. Or, even better, record my podcast from the john, which would continue my experiments to prove that combining any activity with sitting on the toilet makes both activities more enjoyable.
Anyway, in our first episode we talk about Facing the Giants,
new Christian music, Chrisitan art in general. It strikes me that we don't really get into why we don't like Christian art, but maybe on a future episode. For now we're going to try doing one episode a week, which I think is good discipline for us to get used to. This next week we were supposed to watch End of the Spear
, but apparently Don's copy is loaned away to God only knows who, so we'll be watching The Hangman's Curse
instead. I loved the first From Dusk Till Dawn
, so this prequel should be awesome. Plus, it has Danny Trejo in it! Uh.. wait a sec.
Hmm...Frank Peretti. Sort of the Christian Stephen King, except to be fair to the quality of King's work, he's really like more of a Christian Dan Brown. Back in the day I loved his early books, especially This Present Darkness,
but I'm not sure how well they would hold up if I read them again. His later books bored the crap out of me, although his young adventure series, The Cooper Kids I think it was called, was an enjoyable semi-Christian Indiana Jones rip-off. I do think that if I ever re-read Piercing the Darkness
I wouldn't be so bothered by the dig on George Lucas towards the end of the book. At the time I read it, 1994 or so, that was akin to blasphemy. A one or two line reference that nearly ruined the books. Now...well, let me put it this way: The idea of George Lucas spreading demonic ideas through secret messages in the Star Wars trilogy is less offensive to me than the idea of Greedo shooting first.
Love, joy and peace!
