Why I Don’t Miss My Large Screen TV

110811_rg_AlternativeTV_01.jpgWhen we moved away from North America in 2006, one of the things that we left behind, but have discovered wo do not miss is a large screen TV. Nowadays, many households have a HDTV monster anchoring the living room.

Christian And Other Music

In the past, I would have been quick to dismiss Christian faith music, especially the metal or alternative metal. However, I’ve come to change my mind over the years.

I don’t really care about the faith of a band. I’m sure that I’ve listened to Satanists over the years. Is Christian faith music so aberrant?


I actually like Flyleaf a lot. I know that Evanescence isn’t really Christian faith music, but I still like it. I watched Die Hard 4 when it came out. I watched the movie again and rediscovered Flyleaf, a band that I had found interesting at the time. There was a time in my life where I wouldn’t listen to any music with instruments. I would only listen to electronic music.

Currently, I listen to a vast array of music, from IDM, minimal techno, to indie and metal. Naturally bands and artists like Hooverphonic, Portishead (I love Third), Massive Attack, The Cardigans, Tricky, Orbital, Moby (Last Night is released tomorrow), Björk, Mouse on Mars, Stereolab, Autechre, Aphex Twin, Metallica (only the first four albums), Slayer (Seasons in the Abyss) :Wumpscut:, Suicide Commando and Evil’s Toy (now called Toy) have been staples in my earphones for years.
