3% Of The Movie About My Life is Now Finished

I saw this on Lindsay Wasik’s blog, and since I was wondering what to post about, it felt like a divine delivery.
IF LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
1. PUT YOUR iPod/iTunes ON SHUFFLE
2. PRESS PLAY
3. DON’T CHEAT
4. FOR EACH QUESTION, PUSH FORWARD
6. SERIOUSLY, DON’T CHEAT
Opening Credits: Ocean Breathes Salty – Modest Mouse
Waking Up: Alone Down There – Modest Mouse
First Day Of School: Tonight, Not Again – Jason Mraz
Falling In Love: Written in the Stars – Elton John & LeAnn Rimes
Fight Song: Shiver – Maroon5
Breaking Up: The Stone – Dave Matthews Band
Prom: Scarecrow – Beck
Graduation: Blowin in the Wind – Joan Baez
Life’s Ok: Izzo/In The End – Jay-Z & Linkin Park
First Day On The Job: Stare at the Sun – Mute Math
Breakdown: One Tree Hill – U2
Driving: I Just Died in Your Arms Tonite – Resource (Trance Mix)
Flashback: Tears are in Your Eyes – Yo La Tengo
Getting Back Together: Alfie – Joss Stone
Birth Of A Child: What I Would Say – Steven Curtis Chapman
Wedding: Mr. Bojangles – Jerry Jeff Walker
Chase Scene: Bomb – Switchfoot
Final Battle: Love – Mos Def
Death Scene: Lost at Sea (Remix) – Eisley
Funeral Song: There Goes My Life – Kenny Chesney
End Credits: Yeah – Usher
Sequel Trailer: Mix Tape – Brand New
My personal favorite selection is The Stone as a breakup song.  Perfect.  Tears are in Your Eyes is also pretty nice for a flashback.
I’ve kind of always thought that Jimmy Eat World’s "Bleed American" CD would be good as a 1-CD soundtrack for my life.
peace,

Something New

So, I’m a Reverend now.  I thought Tony and Kyle did a remarkable job.  I don’t usually post pictures, but here are a few from the ordination this past Wednesday.  (updated…i’ve lost the pictures…)

Not in a million years

I have been thinking it over, and I’ve decided that it will never happen.  I mean never.  Even if I was offered the position, I wouldn’t take.  What position, you ask?  Bob Barker is going to retire from the Price is Right next June, and I’m saying right now that whenever they call and ask me to replace him, I’m going to turn it down.
How can you replace Bob?  No one can give away a 1984 Chrysler LaBaron like him.  No one can stand on those 47 year old sets and make them look like they were just wheeled off of the production line.  A "Hot for Chris" shirt on a 86 year old Grandmother would never look as good as "Hot for Bob".
Tyler aka Sweet-T aka Sweet-N-Lowe and I were talking about how cool it would be if someone called and offered us the job managing the Texas Rangers.  Well, it would be cool for about 20 minutes until we realized how little we know about managing a baseball club.  Same for the P.I.R.  It is an exciting thought in my dreams (yes I dream about hosting the Price is Right…I love me some Plinko), but there’s no way I could ever replace the legend.
