16 Random Things

Jeff over at Consuming Worship hit me up for this fun little post!

1. I’ve lived in the same state ALL my life. Within this great state of Louisiana, I’ve only lived in Baton Rouge and Lafayette. I think I might be a lifer here, the next 5 years will determine that.

2. I hate pickles. My Mom says I shouldn’t use ‘hate’ for anything…but I hate pickles.

3. I think musical style matters in worship through music. I know it shouldn’t but I can’t explain my musical taste and neither can I explain why simply the intro to a certain worship song can draw me to a song where as another song can be sung for ten minutes and I have to want to try to worship before anything happens.

4. My wife and I have been together for 10 years. Married for 5 and dated for 5. I am her High School Sweetheart. She’s not mine though 😦 I was in college at the time!

5. I’m a Christian cynic. I think that means that I initially don’t like anything with the label of “Christian” in the cultural environment. That’s usually a big turn-off for me.

6. My Gram is from Puerto Rico and her cooking is so incredible it’s just not fair.

7. I struggle with being a parent and a friend to my daughter and she’s only 3.

8. Donald Miller is currently rocking my world! I have about a dozen podcasts of his that I listen to over and over and over again. I talk about him like we hang out.

9. Once a week I hear: “You know, you remind me of Jesus!” but it’s because of the long hair.

10. I played in a “Christian” Rock Band in College called Soapbox and was an awful front man.

11. I grew up Southern Baptist, went to a Non-Denominational church, helped plant an Episcopalian church, visited my Maw Maw’s Methodist Church, and am now on staff at a Presbyterian church.

12. I used to have a problem with pornography but the love of my wife and daughter have made that intolerable in my life.

13. I am a gear snob. Don’t come to me with a solid state amp or anything with First Act on it!

14. I prefer Chuck’s over Vans.

15. I’m a newly converted Apple Addict! I’ve tasted the Kool Aid. Once you go Mac, never got back!

16. I have a crazy philosophy on the subject of Deja Vu. I don’t remember if I truly made it up or if there is actual scientific data backing it! I should research it more…wait a minute…I remember wanting to do that once before…wait a minute…

You’re next Donna, Aaron, Klampert, Justin, Ginger, Jonathan, Alex, Austin, Mud, Chad, Jason

    @Jason yes that totally is and I’m so glad you posted! I’ve neglected you from my blogroll and now I tag you buddy 🙂

    @Klampert yeah man. It’s ironic, I enjoy cucumbers. I HATE pickles. That’s actually a shirt I found and I think I must have it!

    how can you put ALL solid states in with “First Act”… that’s just classless sir! Marshall makes some nice solid states.

    p.s. – you look more like American Jesus… i used to get that all the time too, but i cut my hair several years back and havent grown it out sense.

    I’m with you on the solid state amps, but don’t come down too hard on First Act. Their custom guitars are some awe-inspiring instruments.

    I actually like solid state too. lol

    funny thing is I love pickles but hate cucumbers. lol

    I’m not sure if there’s much class in being a gear ‘snob!’ Hahaha 🙂
    …psss…the only amp I own is a Marshall Solid State…HOWEVER the only amp I PLAY is a Fender Blues Jr.!!

    However, this isn’t a list of 16 Things I’m Proud Of. I’m not particularly proud of being a gear snob, however, I believe I am 🙂
    Thanks alot Jimbo!

    I’m a total gear snob also, but you may have to re-think your First Act. They have some very high-end guitars in their line-up. It’s not all Wal Mart stuff.
