  • Thanks for all the kind words about the Abroad EP. (If you didn't hear it yet, you can just click on "Music" up to the right at the top of the page.) I figured while I am putting music out there, here are some fun Christmas songs from the past few years. 'Tis the season...

  • I had a blast in Brooklyn / New York City earlier this week for the Charity: Ball. Any time a group of people raises over $4million in one night to help people on the other side of the globe drink clean water is a success.

  • Came across this quote a few days ago, and it struck me because it is so true. I wonder how often I miss thoughts and ideas directed at me: "The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place." - George Bernard Shaw

  • As a wimp in cold weather and a new lover of UBER, I definitely used the service a lot. Check out this article on why it is becoming one of the most valuable companies in the world. Also, sign up for UBER and try it out! You'll be glad you did.

  • While you're in the giving spirit, please take a look at the Light The World campaign for JOYN India which just went live this week! AustinEstherJordan, and several others have put a lot of heart into it. These stories are amazing.

Songs for Christmas

After the "Advent Songs" post the other day, several people asked for some direction on Christmas music. Here are a few things that jumped to mind immediately:

I love Evan's work on "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" below and I love every guy playing an instrument in this video.

Brad & Luke did an amazing Adventure Drums video of a song that may take some of you back:

As far as some incredible Christmas records to enjoy these last few days before the big day:

And although Dave Barnes also has a great Christmas record, his Christmas Extravaganzas are hilarious ... especially this year's.

Also, for myself this year, I put together a Spotify playlist to always have updating. Check it out here: Feliz NaviDODD

(Also, check out some fun Christmas videos from 2010.)

Feliz NaviDODD. Merry Christmas and have a great holiday!
