Writing Music – Sigur Ros

I enjoy writing to Sigur Ros’. Some may find it distracting. Here is a video from their recent release. The English title is, “Moving Art.”

On the floor (Cold)play ing with my Best Friend

The seat did not matter. I had never bought tickets to a pop/rock/alternative concert before. When it was announced that Coldplay would be coming to Oklahoma City in July, I accessed Ticketmaster and clicked the button for tickets. Growing up it was about the “seat.” Since I had never been to a concert on par with Coldplay, the seat did not matter. I simply wanted to be in the building.

Patty had agreed to go with me. The July date was postponed. Fortunately the new date fell on an evening we had free – a Sunday evening. Yes, the pastor goes alt rock.

Lyle’s Favorite Band – U2

I remember when I had hair like Lyle in this photo. Natalie wondered how “BALD” Lyle would be today. Not sure. But, we can sure reminisce about how much hair we had “back in the day.”

One of the features here at The Edge of the Inside is a weekly video in the right sidebar. This month I have been featuring one of Lyle’s favorite bands – if not his favorite – U2.

In October of 2009 we went to the U2 360 Tour. I imagine Lyle would have enjoyed it, even the Black Eyed Peas. I recall Lyle getting a copy of U2’s Vertigo Tour. Here is a post from Lyle after watching U2.

U2 a religious experience?

I have enjoyed listening to U2 for as long as I can remember. I guess I am a little late in buying into the idea that their music is some form of worship. I watched a free concert of sorts a few months ago, it was entertaining, sort of in a documentary fashion. Read More

Weekly Video – Jeremy Begbie

In the first sidebar to the right you will find a regular feature – Weekly Video. Each week I post a video that has intrigued me for one reason or another. It may be the music of a newly discovered artist or group. Sometimes the video is a clip from a favorite author or friend. Other occasions I find something provocative that stirs the imagination.

This week’s video is of Jeremy Begbie on Theology Through the Arts. I first heard Begbie this past April at the Wheaton Theology Conference. One of my favorite presentations was given by Jeremy Begbie. If you have not heard that talk, I would suggest visiting the Wheaton website and take a listen. Watch the video and be intrigued by the imagination of Jeremy Begbie.

Amazing Grace – Jason Milam

Jason plays acoustic guitar each week at Snow Hill. Here he puts together a nice version of Amazing Grace. Enjoy.
