(starting music: Sufjan Stevens covering The Innocence Mission’s “The Lakes of Canada”, which is as lovely as it sounds)
1. Am I alone in wanting Sufjan to one day do a Bob Dylan cover? If he ever were to do that, I could die a happy woman. My vote is for “Gates of Eden”, personally, just because it’s epic enough sonically and bizarre enough lyrically that Sufjan could do it justice.
2. Actually, other recordings I want to hear:
-Derek Webb doing a U2 cover (well, which he has, since Caedmon’s used to cover “In God’s Country” and he’d sing lead, but…I want to hear what he’d do with one of their anti-war diatribes)
-This is a little strange, but part of me wants Rufus Wainwright to get saved so he’ll do a hymns compilation. I don’t know if this’ll ever happen, but it’s a fun thought.
3. Those of you who are more theologically studied than I am, I have a question: What’s the proper place of tradition in Reformed theology? And, if we know that because Reformed tradition tells us so, why is it right? (I’m not looking to ditch my Reformedness any time soon; I just want to know. I should read up on this more myself…)
4. I actually should look more into apologetics, too, both for purposes of evangelism and for bolstering my own faith. Really.
5. This is an odd post, isn’t it? I should probably go to sleep now…
6. Is anyone else utterly horrified/amused that R. Kelly is coming out with more installments of “Trapped in the Closet”? (You know, a few months back, Alamo Draft House in Austin had a singalong to this one night. I very nearly went.)
