One of Mr. Larry Norman’s songs I really liked. The Jesus Movement of the 70’s held “the Rapture” as a tenet of faith. They were simple, passionate about their faith in Christ’s Resurrection, atonement and Second Coming. I dunno what I think about the doctrine of eschatology anymore as far as a chronology goes. Not my hill to die on. (lurid phrase!)
BUT: I was always in love with the tender way Mr. Norman treated the bigger idea of a restored humanity…
“He will roll away your stone…”

Love this one – truly epic.
ADAGIO words/music by: bill mallonee
it all showed up fractured
it all showed up broke
it was never a story
more like an unfinished note
and the sighs? they were deafening
more than pictures could show

Watch Boy perform an acoustic version of its international hit live in The Current’s studios. From NPR.ORG
Happy, nice and fun! I think I’m going soft.

Been away from this for a good long time. I’ll likely check in time to time, as in now. I’m still posting on The Bobblehead, Till We Have Faces and Art of the State if you want to head over there.
This is from one of my favorite groups and this song download is to help Paradise | Uganda (paradiseuganda.com)

Something a bit lighter than the usual and a whole lotta fun! Please watch on full screen and best resolution.
Royal Hoax is an alternative/pop/rock group out of Detroit. A three-piece formed in the summer of 2010, Royal Hoax was created by a set of brothers, Jake and Mark Hoke, and drummer Elijah Nelson. Jake plays bass and sings lead vocals while Mark takes on guitar, harmonies and keys. Elijah’s brother, Caleb, is brought onto the live stage as an extra guitarist and keyboardist. The dynamics between two sets of brothers performing creates a cohesiveness and genuine energy you have to experience!

The soulful vocal beauty of Chris Martin from Coldplay, the folk-symphonic scope of Sufjan Stevens, and the heart-broken tearfulness of Damien Rice or Ryan O’Neal from Sleeping At Last.
Compelling beauty herein but somehow after all this research and sampling, I want to enjoy some Regina Spektor.

In September wint hij de 3voor12 Award voor Album van het Jaar. Blaudzun zelf kan niet bij het feest en de uitreiking aanwezig zijn omdat hij op dat moment door Duitsland toert. Na een uitverkochte Belgische clubtour en een concert op CMJ in New York besluit hij 2012 met een op voor hand uitverkochte clubtour in Nederland. Ter ere daarvan wordt op 12 november een speciale Heavy Flowers-toureditie met een livealbum en een fotoboek uitgebracht. Wiki
