This makes me happy!!

So this guy plays Bonnaroo last night. And gets BOOED off the stage. Yep. This does make me happy.


Bierstick…….this can not be good!

Adult beverages are great. Thank you Red Oak!!! One of my favorite beers of all time, brewed here in Greensboro. A couple with a meal is fine. No problems. Now, when you consume a lot of adult beverages problems seem to creep around. these problems can range from headaches to vomiting and on occasion police records. Never good. When I was younger “I saw people” engaging in the  over consumption of adult beverages using beer bongs. A funnel with a pipe you lift up and inhale two beers at a time. It took about ten seconds, maybe five, to get two down. So I hear anyway. A party gimmick that got people drunk really quick.

Well move over beer bong, here is the Bierstick.


This sucker has lawsuit written all over it!

Here are a few highlights from the website.

So long, beer bong…

Drink up to 24 ounces in less than two seconds. The Bierstick is crafted from high-quality FDA approved materials. Its durable, compact design makes it very discreet — small enough to fit in a backpack. The friction-fit mouthpiece allows for easy filling and cleaning, leaving zero mess. If you think you can drink, you haven’t seen anything yet.


Remove mouthpiece and fill bierstick with beer, or other beverage.

Put mouthpiece back on and push air out of tube.

While holding mouthpiece firmly with one hand, place end-cap against wall or other stationary surface and press to drink when ready.


Unreal. I have no words, but my side is splitting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Taking Back The Streets…………….

Ok, here’s the deal. Charles Miller, senior drummer in the Crossings Worship Band, also happens to be the brain child behind First Platoon Industries. I’ve mentioned him and his company many times in the past. Charles has been the one who has been bringing in all of the hardcore bands to Burlington playing shows at  our church. Well, he’s leaving in August for Belmont University, and decided to go out with a freaking humongous bang!! He has helped organize an event called Taking Back the Streets.  This is going to be a two day music festival raising money for Compassion International. Forty bands, mostly hardcore, but he did land a few others not on the website yet, so I will wait to tell you when he post them. But here’s whos in so far….. August Burns Red, As Cities Burn, Edison Glass, GRITS, The Chariot, The Glorious Unseen, Oh Sleeper, John Mark Mcmillan, The Urban Sophisticates, Versa Emerge, Cool Hand Luke, Gwen Stacy, My Children My Bride, Belle Epoque, Advent, Progress in Color, SOPHIA (My personal favorite hardcore band), The Glass Ocean, Sleeping Giant, Here I Come Falling, Brian Morgante, Conditions, and Emarosa. Many more to come. If you are near the area and can make this event, you should. We’ll be there with JesusGreaterThan and helping out with Compassion International. Charles has a huge heart for God, Compassion, and Hardcore Music. Show some love to him by linking to his site and getting the word around. It’s going to be great! More details coming soon!!

Hardcore at Heart!

This is where my heart is when it comes to music. I thought I would start sharing some new and old favorites. Here’s a new on. August Burns Red. Oh, I think I know where they will be August 21 and 22. More to come on that later. Enjoy!!”></param><embed
