Saturday Plugs

I'm still working through The Message of the Psalms, which is coming along more slowly than I hoped. I think my interests lay elsewhere at the moment, and am wishing for other reading. It's a good book, and I'm about halfway through, but I think I might set it aside or at least read in conjunction with something else, maybe a psalm here, then a chapter or two from a different work altogether.

We watched Blade the other day. I had never seen it before, but when we sat down to watch it, it was pretty much what I expected: vampire hunter and damsel in distress try to stop vampire's plot to kill innocent people. Add in lots of blood, sprinkle in discussion of what does and doesn't kill vampires, stretch out over an hour and a half. Meh.

Near the very beginning of my seminary career a friend took me to see Robynn Ragland, who was playing in a small St. Louis venue. I pulled her CD back out the other day. In many ways she's a typical female act for this day and age: young attractive singer-songwriter with an acoustic guitar playing folk-rock and musing about life's idiosyncrasies. But she's charming and can rock out and her songs are pretty tight, so go ahead and give her a listen. Apparently no one's updated her site in a long time, but see what you can see.

Around the web, do not press the red button. Heh.
