NEW MUSIC: Patty Griffin

I am NOT just a rocker. I love good music of any genre.

Patty Griffin's Children Running Through is stellar. This isn't a record that I will workout with at the gym by no means, but as for any other time, this CD is great from beginning to end. Patty 's musical art is like an amazing wine....better with age. Every release that she has put out over the last 5 years just keep getting better as she grows older. What a writer!

*The Blogstar 2.0 COMING SOON!!!!!

We are working on changing *The Blogstar site soon. I am not a Blogger (blogspot) fan.... NO I am not.

Wordpress is the leading format at this point.

The content will be a little even more focused on the creative arts, and culture. As well as more writings and videos of yours truly, so that should cheer you up.

Oh yeah, and Happy birthday to me TODAY.

Your New President Would Be Rudolph Giuliani!!!!

According the the previous poll finishing last night at midnight, *The Blogstar readers voted Giuliani for your new U.S. President just having a slight edge over Obama.

I have a feeling that if we would have kept it going, Obama might have pulled it out.

Barack Obama 34%

Hillary Clinton 3%

Rudolph Giuliani 38%

John McCain 24%

We will do some more of these.

re:create & EMI CMG Summit

Another year of the re:create conference has come and gone. I am worn... in a good way.

Some highlights were, Rick Demsey, Dean Batali, Lou Marcos, the Mooring family (Leeland), some amazing food (as always), and some good hang time with some of the coolest lead worshipers and pastors from around the world (thats right Mark).

So many of the attenders are so very passionate about their art and their faith. That was another one of my take aways. Randy, thanks for being a dreamer.

For part of the day today I was invited to be a part of a cool "thinktank" gathering at EMI CMG in Brentwood. Some of the peeps from re:create and some other music industry peeps were in a small room talking, thinking, and learning about songwriting, leading worship, publishing, and hearing the backgrounds on some popular worship songs from the writers themselves. (I had some video, but my &*#^)#$@*&! camera died).

In attendance...
Brenton Brown, Leeland Mooring, Matt Mauer, Mark Byrd, and a few others.

A few take aways from re:create and the EMI / Worship Together Summit....

-Never give up on creating amazing progressive art, no matter what surrounding you find yourself in.

-I need and should write more why don't I? (oh yeah, where is the time?!?!)

-We need better relationships with our pastors, so that we can unite with vision & trust for our church and community & THE KINGDOM.

-We are not alone in our struggles.

-Dreaming isn't dead.

re:create 07 Has Started

re:create 2007 started today.

First things first. Big ups to Randy Elrod for hosting the biggest conference yet.

This time always proves to be GREAT.

4 years ago, I lead worship for an AM session for 40 creative arts guys from around the U.S. and his year I am attending as a "nobody" with 150 somebodys.

You KNOW there is more coming.
