An unworthy Deacon, named for the brother of God: James, striving to "work out his salvation with fear and trembling" within the Tradition (paradosis) of the Eastern Orthodox Faith. It is a strange and marvelous journey, and I am accompanied by the fourfold fruit of my fecundity. My wife, the Matushka or Diaconissa Sophia, is my beloved partner in the pursuit of Theosis, and she ranks me in every way.
First, Little Big Town has a new album out. And you can watch them perform some of the songs (as well as some oldies) HERE. (Warning: By clicking here you will end up going to Walmart, if you feel this will damn you to hell forever, don't click. Otherwise enjoy.)
ALSO...today is the 8th of November, and as we also approach Veteran's Day I offer a hearty thanks to all of the Vets out there. We honor you and those we've lost.
Got the album (at 12:20 EST on Wednesday). Do you have it yet...if not, I'll bring it over on CD for a listen.
Also, didja see the CMA awards last night? LBT was robbed. Not that I would have minded if they had lost to anyone other than Rascal Flatts. Or, as the Fallins now call them, "Rascal Flatts and Sharpps". That was the worst award show performance I've ever seen. Steve (not me, the uber-sensitive one) actually muted their last song. Incidentally, we thought Jamie Foxx was right on, so it couldn't have been technical problems...
