Coldplay’s new single. What do you think?
The SerialBox is quickly becoming the project whose release I anticipate more than any video / music project on the interwebs.
I love the track and love the feel of the music being expressed through this video. The tune is captured so clearly and so well! And as an added bonus, Ryan is great at asking the right questions. Read his thoughtful interview on songwriting with Thad (who is a phenomenal songwriter!)Â here.
Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
If you know me, you probably know that I like to make lists. My mind can run a million miles an hour and it seems to not run at full capacity if I am not constantly writing thoughts down. It used to be notecards, then it was the planner that Baylor gave us. Now, not only am I a huge fan of Things & Evernote and constantly have them loaded with what seems to be endless ideas and tasks, but I also often carry a Moleskin around and fill up 8.5” x 11” sheets of blank paper with chicken scratch like no one’s business. Exhibit A:
There are pros and cons to this method; I love having an outlet (and I honestly need to) but it can sometimes be hard to sort through and keep track of while still being an effective husband, businessman, songwriter, etcetera.
I came across Ben Franklin’s daily schedule (below) a few days ago and it struck me really funny.
After spending some time thinking about it, I thought about what my schedule looks like. I know what I want it to look like. Sometimes it happens. Sometimes it doesn’t.
How often do I examine the day? How many times does my day look this simple?
I am thankful to know and to work for & with several people that tend to evaluate themselves at the end of the day and ask this type of important question:
- Did people see Jesus through me today?
- Was I better today than I was yesterday? (And if not, how can I change that tomorrow?)
- Was I encouraging to everyone I talked to today?
- DId I spend enough time thinking?
I loved that this made me stop and contemplate. Hope it does the same for you.
I got to know Cory at Kanakuk the same summer I met Lacey. He talked about playing bass all the time and turned out to not be too bad at strumming the guitar either.
Fast forward a few years and I have loved being in touch with him to see him develop as a bassist, especially with his band, Telegram.
So I post this video to share with you how stoked I am that he is doing what he loves and that he is pretty good at it. Enjoy!
If you’re one of the 179K people that have seen this video, chances are that you already love it. If you’re not, enjoy.
I love the track and love the feel.
