Behold the Lamb of God: Live at Ashland Avenue Baptist Church

Last December I had the opportunity to watch Andrew Peterson and a bunch of his friends perform his album Behold the Lamb of God live from start to finish in Richmond.  Andrew has been touring this album every December for the past 4-5 years all across the country, and I hope he continues to for many years to come.

Watching this group of people play together is such a treat; the lineup is heavy on talent, including the likes of Andrew Osenga, Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, Ben Shive, Pierce Pettis, and multiinstrumentalist Gabe Scott.  All in one room.  All creating something beautiful together.

Suffice to say, this was one of the highlights of my December.

Anyway, a while back I ran across a video someone had compiled for the Behold the Lamb of God performance at Ashland Avenue Baptist Church in Lexington, KY.  It’s really well put together and gives a good preview of what it is like to attend one of these concerts.  Take a look at the video below (be sure to click “HQ” to view it in high quality!) and prepare to block out an evening or two this coming December to go watch them play.


If you don’t already own it, you can purchase Behold the Lamb of God in the store over at The Rabbit Room.  It’s one of my favorite albums, and I could listen to it all year long.

(Yeah, I know it’s August, but I was unable to find an embeddable version of this video before now.  It’s still worth watching.  🙂 )

Rain, Peace, and Quiet.

I woke up this morning to freezing rain, leading in turn to snow and then rain again later this afternoon.

Apparently, Charlottesville-area schools are on delay again, which is sort of amusing; it’s still just rain for now.

I got in to work a few minutes ago, and I’m the only person in today, it seems; everyone else is either ona business trip or taking care of things in the Northern Virginia office. At least I have some time to breathe, think, and wrap my head around a few projects at work without any distractions.

I often lament not having more times like these when I can focus on one thing and do it well, but on the other hand I’m constantly trying to cram more and more things into my day, distracting myself with any number of things. I bet that with a bit more self-discipline, these moments don’t have to be so out-of-the-ordinary. 🙂

The Matrix Runs on Windows

Ok, this is somewhat old (November of last year), and I am  essentially stealing it from a post my friend Brock wrote, but this is the first time I have seen this.

There’s a funny short film parody put out by called The Matrix Runs on Windows, and it features none other than my friend Winston Noel as Neo.  I went to both high school and college at the University of Virginia with Winston; after graduating, he moved up to New York City to pursue a career in acting.  I’d say he’s on his way up.

Congratulations, Winston!

Brock found it via a post on Gizmodo, where they wrote

The crew at CollegeHumor have outdone themselves with their latest short, The Matrix Runs on Windows. The concept is pretty self-explanatory: the movie The Matrix if the construct was run on Windows XP. It’s incredible that content shot for the web is reaching the quality of the movies that it spoofs. Seriously, how good does this look?

Pretty cool.
