Lack of Lyrics

Ha! This Tuesday we had a great time at the Men’s meeting at church. However, due to a real good worship time, we had to come up with a few songs on the fly. This was a bit difficult, due to the fact that the two we were given ahead of time were put into the overheads software ProPresenter.

ProPresenter is REALLY cool, not because it’s Mac only (I don’t like Mac that well), but because it can do EVERYTHING without using another program. You can import video files, audio files, images and text files. The idea of this program is to pipe this stuff to a full-screen window on a second monitor which would be piped into an overhead projector feed. Thus you can get lyrics for songs up. Of course, you probably wonder, why the video and audio and images if the program is for putting lyrics up on an overhead projector? Well, modern media technology is trending toward an animated background beneath your words, which really enhances the experience.

Two things I’m excited about:

  1. I donated $65 to this missions group to provide blankets for new Afghan mothers. Link here.
  2. I bought Phil Wickham’s new CD – Heaven & Earth. Now all I have to do is..OH! I need to download vCast to get my phone drivers working again. I like to listen to music off of my phone, and so far I’ve been missing the drivers for transferring music onto it. I’ll go do that after I finish this thing.

Another cool thing is: I’m at the new library in Fort Collins. What’s it called? I don’t remember. Let me go look it up. Council Tree Library. It’s the second floor of a new outdoor mall complex in southeast Fort Collins. Not very big on normal tables..they’re into this retro comfy-chair look, but I can manage.

Anyhow, that’s about all. Let me go get those drivers.

Dale Walter

So I’d like to take a moment and give my own memorial to Dale Walter who I considered a good friend. Of course, he considered EVERYONE a good friend, but everyone felt speial after talking with him for any length of time. Anyhow, he died in a car wreck last Wednesday and his memorial service yesterday was amazing. Maybe when I get a normal keyboard under my fingers I’ll rehash it all.

Simple Update (as if you haven’t gotten enough already)

So I had this job opportunity open up over the weekend for a janitor position at work. All I have to do is call this one lady at the church. I’m planning on doing that tomorrow morning maybe before school. Boy, I hope I can pick up something.

On another note: we’re heading over to Loveland this evening for a visit with some friends. The excuse is to watch football, but none of us is very into football (even if Dad professes to be a fan). But it’ll be good to visit with those guys anyway.

Yet another note, I tried looking over the jQuery API and couldn’t quite figure it out. In addition to that, I researched Google Chrome theme builders and figured out how to do it manually in addition tothe little programs that do it for you. And, of course, I got all the videos listed below uploaded.

Brant in Afghanistan

So I was listening to the friendly dj’s on WayFM, of whom Brant Hanson is in Afganistan is on a short term missions trip. He’s been talking for a couple weeks about ‘donate blankets to new moms and I’ll see that they make it when I go next month. Well, the time for buying blankets is over and now the organization is taking just plain money. Well, I’m all into it now, and I feel like doing something. What, I don’t know yet, because I got Mom all into it too. We’ll see.

In either case, here’s the link they’ve been into all week long: http://www.helpcurenow.org/site/c.nvI1IeNYJyE/b.5546033/k.524/Mornings_with_Brant_teams_up_with_CURE.htm

Fall Festival

For all you kiddos in Northern Colorado: Resurrection Fellowship in North Loveland is having their annual fall festival. And I’m going to be helping with the building of the human maze. The last two years it has been way overboard (taking up rooms upon rooms upon basements upon auditoriums, etc). So we are toning down this year in order that no one gets lost. So tomorrow night we’re setting up and it should be a good old time on Wednesday night.
