Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is the first person to create a music video from space.
And it is just as awesome as you would think it would be.
Not only does he sing it pretty well, but the video shots are amazing. The idea of playing the guitar in zero-gravity–yeah, that’s awesome.

Here’s a tall glass of inspiration.
Christian hip hop artist Propaganda shares the G.O.S.P.E.L. in the most excellent way.
The video production is top-notch. Lyrically it’s spot-on. This is better than a bowl-full of your favorite breakfast cereal.
Think of it as a Mother’s Day primer.
Rhett and Link have a “Yo Mamma” rap battle–but they’re filled with compliments.
Is this a Church wide problem?
Jordan Richmond shared his thoughts about it on Thom S. Rainer and the comments came pouring in!
As a former A/V team leader, it really resinated with me as I’ve had my fair share of church worship sound complaints.
How loud is your church worship service? Do people complain?
I used to do a lot of impressions when I was younger, but then I had to have surgery on my vocal chords, resulting in the loss of my powers. Thankfully, a few years post-surgery, I was taken in by a burgeoning movie franchise that boasted a wonderfully imitable character. That franchise was The Lord of the Rings and that character was Gollum, the creature formerly known as Sméagol.
Anyway, I’ve always had a soft spot for that creepy little guy—maybe he’s ripe for a “Science Fiction/Biblical Reality” post?—so when I saw this video, I had to share it.
Prepare yourself for a Gollum cover of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble.”
I love music, but I must admit that my tastes may be a bit dated. However, I try my best to keep up through a variety of sources including NoiseTrade.com and The Relevant Podcast. Even still, as my ears age, so does my palate.
The other day, I realized that one of my friends was using Spotify to stream music for his youth services when I heard an ad broadcast over the speakers. It was weird to hear ads played over the sound system, but I guess it wasn’t a big deal…until an ad played during some fairly intense prayer time!
The reason for using Spotify was that it provided easy access to new music, as opposed to the iTunes library that had been cobbled together by well-intentioned people about four years earlier.
Old church music can be a problem, especially in youth ministry, so that lead me to ask:
Eran Amir, an artist and musician, captured video of more than 300 different people singing individual musical notes.
With his collection, he programmed them into his keyboard and the result is absolute fun–the human piano.
(Great song selection, too, I might add!)
So this is part 2 of my 2 part Bellarive interview with Sean, lead singer of Bellarive.
Quick Recap of Part 1:
We talked about vision and the process behind gelling as a band. Sean also shared how God was able to work through the band to plant a seed in a kids heart that soon blossomed into him being saved by Jesus.

For those who read part 1, let’s pick up where we left the conversation.
Biz Markie, move over. There’s a new beatmaster in town.
If you haven’t yet been swept up by the comedic/creative genius of Jon Cozart, don’t worry; you’ll be showering me with adulation shortly.
Paint, as Cozart is known to his rapidly increasing YouTube viewership, is the embodiment of the “gleek” Glee was written about. His self-produced duets (with himself, no less) are hilarious angst-filled creations that will have you smiling.
In this video, Paint uses paper to create a memorable beat sequence. What I like about the video is the production:
For those wanting to bring a bit of Jewish culture to their Easter celebration services, may I offer this?
