Hear, See, and Do – #2

It’s that time again for another crack at Hear, See, and Do. It’s just another way to get inside my head…

Hear: John Piper’s Sermon “How the Supremacy of Christ Creates Radical Christian Sacrifice”
John Piper recently preached this sermon at the Together For the Gospel Conference in Lousiville, Kentucky and I’ve listened to it a few times now and would like to pass it on. If this doesn’t go down as one of the defining sermons of his life I’ll be sad — trust me, it’s a good one.

See: This video and song by Phil Wickham.
It’s a song called “True Love” off his Cannons album. This acoustic version is ridiculously good:

Do: Visit evadethenoise.com and read reviews by my friends and me!
I love music and movies, there’s no denying that. That’s why my friend Abe and I created and founded evadethenoise.com. It started out as a way for us to push our love for music and is slowly evolving into more. This past week we added movie reviews (thanks to Jared), and we’re continually adding more news and reviews each week. Oh, and I did a review on Wall-E that’s a must read…robots are neat.

Some recent reviews from me: Wall-E, Coldplay, and Death Cab For Cutie.
Some from the rest of the evade team: Expelled and The Killing.

Some Non-Eternals

Good Times
June is here — summer is upon us. Like many of you, I love summer. Of course, summer used to be way cooler when you didn’t have to work and you just hung out with your friends all day, but such is life — now I work full time. But these 40 hour work weeks won’t keep me from enjoying American consumerism. You might call this my list of non-eternals, but here’s a few things that are going to be fabulous this year:

June 3rd | New Weezer album, The Red Album
June 13th | Dizmas concert
June 15th | My birthday falls on Father’s Day! I will only be celebrating my birthday so don’t start any rumors.
June 17th | New Coldplay album, Viva la Vida
June 27th | Movie - Wall-E

July 3rd | Movie - Hancock
July 18th | Movie Batman: The Dark Knight

August 8th - 24th | The Summer Olympics in Beijing! Already setting my TiVo for a few soccer matches.
August 30th | Sister-in-law getting married. Means a trip to the great northwest.

I can’t wait.

Music With A Message…

Dizmas’ new album came out today, and the best part — it’s on this thing called the internet!

Get your copy… $7.99 on iTunes. Beautiful.

And for the record… Zach used to wear those visors — trust me, I was there.

Dizmas – Yours (Live Acoustic)

Tonight my Dizmas boys were on the radio back east. Of course, I listened in via this thing called the internet. We decided we would record it for future posterity. Oh, and one more thing… Zach give us a shout out at the end. Yeah…. we’re friends.

**UPDATE**
I added “Play It Safe” which Dizmas performed live as well. Click here to check it out!

Dizmas – Redemption, Passion, Glory

One of the bummer things about knowing people in bands is that they tour a lot. Dizmas, for instance, spends months out on the road touring and playing shows. I get to see the guys for a few days and then it’s back on the road for them. This morning was another bum deal because they were on Air1 radio doing an interview and I couldn’t listen to it because I was at work.

Despite all that, I do try to keep up with the band via this crazy thing called the world wide web — you might have heard of it. Every now and then a good YouTube video pops up and today was one of those days. Below is some footage of the guys playing “Redemption, Passion, Glory” from their first album.

Where I find Dizmas:
