LIVE RECORDING UPDATE

Ignore that out of date thermometer to your left there. YOU GUYS GAVE EVERY LAST PENNY NEEDED TO MAKE THE LIVE RECORDING!! WOW! I'm still amazed that it worked.

So, here's what's next:

  • Brian is getting in touch with the venue we'd like to record at in Knoxville and once he has their open days we'll pick one - hopefully in late September or early October - and let you know when and where. We'll also be hitting you up to spread the word about the concert to everyone within drivable distance of the place. Thanks in advance for that!

  • I'd like to make a DVD. So here's the idea and how you could help. If you have a DV or other cool camera (other cool would be an old 16mm for instance) annd would like to film the concert shoot me an e-mail or post a comment here with a link to anything you've shot. You can upload video for free to youtube and send me that link. A couple of people will have back stage access as well and be able to film anything that happens that day if they so desire. Then, when the day's done we'll collect and edit together all the footage. I'd like to add a commentary as well telling the stories behind certain songs, why I'm singing a different lyric than the CD, what I'm looking at or laughing at on that serious song, what I had for dinner, the exact weight of my hair etc. So if you're interested let me know. It would be great to work with you.

  • Tell me what songs or stories you want to hear on the live DVD. Was there something you heard once at a show and thought, "Man, I wish my friend in Paraguay could hear this?" Well, now's your chance. You get to A&R the CD. What do YOU want to hear? (Keep in mind this is an acoustic disc.) Just tell me in the comments of this post.

    I'll keep you updated on the live recording as it progresses.

    No I do not want to hear the Welcome Home story. I know it's funny...sorta but I've heard it so many times. I DO wanna know what your hair weighs! I wanna hear the stories about your kids and hanging out with Beck. Okay so I'm looking for more of a comfy fluffy couch to sit on and listen to you as you just kinda ramble about your family and growing up. I love see the personal side of artists makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I will check my calendar to see if I can come. It's live I am dying to be there!

    I really enjoyed your commentary on Isaiah 6 and the "historically accurate" ;) Louis Armstrong story you told in Raleigh last month. Your background information on and experience with Compassion Intl. was also helpful to hear.

    I'd like to hear Peace Has Broken Out...I haven't heard you do that one live before and it's one of my favorites. Then there's a song called Lay Them Down I haven't heard on CD or live... would you consider doing that one?

    You must do my absolute favorite of your songs, "Abba Father." I was so glad you did it in Pasadena in January.

    I don't think I've heard the story about "Welcome Home," so I wouldn't mind hear it.

    since nobody else has, and i know it's on everyone's mind...

    you HAVE to put the texas song on the disc.

    and just know that none of what i gave you came from graduation money. just so you know. NONE of it was from grad money.

    I totally think you should do Without You along with the story behind it.

    I really like your introduction and chicken and biscuits Bebo Norman story you tell before "Need You More" and I'd like to hear you sing "Only" and "Should I Tell Them?".

    ok...and since someone said something...i have a digital camera (not DV) that gest 60 FPS and has audio. REALLY good videos for a digital camera.

    and i *think* my parents have a DV camera that i can have them bring it to me (assuming they still have it...i doubt they've gotten rid of it, though) when they come up for my graduation next week.

    i have a video that i'm going to put on youtube probably tonight and i'll send you a link when i do.

    Does it involve your tongue again...cuz we really don't need any more of that. Disturbing. Very disturbing. ; ) Should I link to it....

    did you see the video on my blog? LOL

    and no...not my tongue. but someone else's...though i don't actually think you see her tongue in it...

    alrighty, shaun. keep in mind a few things:

    1) youtube makes the video lose a LOT of quality. on my computer, the thing is NOT pixelly at ALL and is crystal clear

    2) i was laughing, therefore making the camera shake a little bit. and i was kinda grossed out that she was eating this.

    3) listen to the audio carefully at the end (about 53 seconds into it).

    4) they cut off 4 seconds of the video, so you don't hear the entire comment at the end, but you do hear the important part

    5) despite what she says, she won't kill me. she gave me permission after the fact.

    i think that's it.

    and also...last year (like...well, okay...2 years ago...in '04) i made a journal video for barlowgirl...went backstage and got hilarious stories from them about the other sisters, then got a little bit of concert footage. it was on my old camera, but i am pretty sure i still have the files on my old computer...but it's a HUGE (like...HUGE) file and the quality of the video isn't as good as what i get now, since the camera i used is like 4 years old now.

    but please let me know if you'd like me to send you that video. i tried looking at the barlow's site, but it doesn't look like they archive anything that far back.

    I second the Bebo story and the "Without You" story. Also, I think everyone would want to hear about the mother/son conflict that broke out during "Peace Has Broken Out" last year in Greensboro.

    So, my TN geography is not good. Is Knoxville further east than Nashville? 'cause if it is, I am so there, unless you do it while I'm on my honeymoon.

    I figure you're probably looking for serious videographers, but I thought I would share anyway.

    Here's a video I shot and edited on my old analog camcorder. It's interviews with strangers about worship that we showed at my church before a sermon one Sunday. Check it out soon. It may not be up forever.

    I have a better 3-ccd DV camera now with optical image stabilization and true widescreen capability.

    Shaun, I would love to hear the story about the spiritual gifts that leads into 'Damage Done'.
