U2 - How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb came out recently. I am excited about the new U2 cd, i listened to a lowbandwidth preview version and liked it, so I added it to my list to send off to Santa Claus. It certainly hearkened back to pre-Achtung Baby days. You can really see the Edge working his Edge type guitar method, from what I heard. The shape of the total ablum reminded me of Joshua tree, and the way the songs felt with one another. It was interesting to hear Bono wanting broken hearts.On a completely different level, I love Baroque Organ Music. I hate contemporary piano music, but I love Organ Music. Such as the likes of Purcell, Clarke, and Bach. Today, a friend let me borrow some Buxtehude, which I am happy about, and after previewing it, am impressed by some of the good stuff therein other news, i was thinking the best band of all time was: the beatlesthe best album of all time was:U2 - Achtung Babymy favorite solo artist of all time is:Phil Keaggy

However, Carson states about book by Kevin Vanhoozer:
What starts off as a contemporary hermeneutics to justify the move from the biblical text to systematic theology becomes a full-blown, highly sofisticated, theological hermeneutics. Vanhoozer is one of the few contemporary scholars who take a balanced measure of postmodern thought within an unflinching Christian confessionalism. Here you will find neither mere traditionalism nor faddishness. This book points the way forward-the Christian way forward- out of the contemporary hermeneutical morass.

I've been wanting to take a trip down to the Bruneau sand dunes for quite some time.The dunes at Bruneau Dunes State Park are unique in the Western Hemisphere. Others in the Americas form at the edges of natural basins; these form near the center. They include the largest single-structured sand dune in North America, with a peak 470 feet above the lakes. In addition, there are some local hot springs to explore also. Such as the Indian Bathtub. Anyway, hopefully I'll get this all organized and underway soon. It would be nice to have a camera, so I could chronicle the exploits, too.
I picked up the Histories by Herodotus. It's been a good read so far. I'm about two thirds done with the Vanhoozer book, and over halfway done with the works of Jonathan Edwards, vol.1 (of 2) . So that's been keeping me busy. I've been switching back and forth to keep it all interesting.

Currently I am a beta tester for it, and it is really quite fun. I am enjoying it immensely. You can play on Player versus Player servers (PvP) and the server pits the four good races against the four bad races, so that the PvP action is more global. There are pets and fun things of all sorts. Not to mention the game is astoundingly beautiful!

Went to Kirkham hot springs today!On the way there, we found a truck overturned in the road (Amazingly, no one was really hurt). So we stopped and directed traffic in the canyon until the police took over (around 40 minutes). It was pretty cool standing out in the middle of the road. Then we got there, and we were the only ones there for the whole duration. Although there were people across the river, on the scenic highway. The temperature was excellent. The sky was crystal clear, and it was a beautiful sunny day. After lounging around for a bit, I started jumping in the river for the shock therapy of it. Everyone decided to do it. Then, I swam across the river. Then of course, everyone had to do that, which was really great fun. However, it was brrrrrr. There were pools with ice on top of them. Kindof crazy! It was complete and total awesomeness. A great day of super-relaxing Idaho fun.
