Literal Music Video – Monday pick-me-up

Have you ever noticed that events in music videos rarely have ANYTHING to do with the music? For example: take this awesome song by Creed…

What on earth is he doing in the video? He’s singing about his son being born, but he’s out roaming the wilderness with his band while his kid is being born… I assume.

Some people have caught onto that fact about music videos, and have fixed them. The video itself is the same, but they fixed the words to the song to match the video. Here’s the Literal Version of Creed’s Arms Wide Open music video:

The “Join the Navy” Mystery

This is a home video my friends and family did together many years ago, and it’s one of my favorites.  General Stickybun is a general in the U.S. Navy, trying to prepare the world to go to war against Iraq.  But at the same time, there are some random murders taking place.  Can the murderer be discovered before… well, you’ll just have to watch the show.

My role is the annoying TAPS player.  Incidentally, I really was playing as best I could, and did better in the video than I usually do.

Thanks to my sister, Shelly, for editing and posting this on Youtube!

Party Game: Three Part Stories

One of my family’s major hobbies is inventing games.  This is a party game we came up with called Three Part Stories.  It’s one of those games that guarantees some great laughs, and takes a little bit of creativity.

If you’ve ever done chain stories, where one starts a story, and then the next person continues it, and so forth, then you have GOT to try the story game.  It is hilarious to the extreme!


If you cannot see the video, you can watch in on Youtube.

Now for the fun part:  Here are the finished stories: Continue reading Party Game: Three Part Stories

Let Us be Men

Let Us Be Men

talltab1We know from the scriptures that “the preaching of the word had a great tendency to lead the people to do that which was just—yea, it had had more powerful effect upon the minds of the people than the sword, or anything else, which had happened unto them…” but what about when even that is not enough?
talltab1When Alma went to preach the gospel to the Zoramites, he had great success.  But when all was said and done, there was still great wickedness among the people.  So Alma changed his approach slightly.  What did he do?

Alma 35:15-16

“Now Alma, being grieved for the iniquity of his people, yea for the wars, and the bloodsheds, and the contentions which were among them; and having been to declare the word, or sent to declare the word, among all the people in every city; and seeing that the hearts of the people began to wax hard, and that they began to be offended because of the strictness of the word, his heart was exceedingly sorrowful.

“Therefore, he caused that his sons should be gathered together, that he might give unto them every one his charge, separately, concerning the things pertaining unto righteousness. And we have an account of his commandments, which he gave unto them according to his own record.”

talltab1He went to his sons and taught them.  He went back to the Continue reading Let Us be Men

My First Music Video! Yay!

I’ve finally completed my first music video.  I guess it’s a little more like a music slideshow, but the piano piece is from the CD I’m planning on releasing at the end of July (If all goes well – and so far so good!) and it’s called, The Fourth Day, referring to the fourth day of creation.  That also means that this is the first time the piece has been published anywhere.  What do you think?
