PTX, Vol. III Review-Pentatonix

Pentatonix is an interesting group with an amazing sound. Consisting of 4 guys and a girl, this a capella group takes on songs that one might never imagine could be performed without instruments while sounding better than the originals. Truly, this group has amazing talent, and their newest outing confirms this. PTX, Vol. III, the 7 track offering that released on September 23rd, is filled with beautiful arrangements, wonderful covers of popular songs, original tracks, great harmonies, and a surprise appearance by Lindsey Stirling. Read on for the track by track rundown of PTX, Vol. III.

Thousand Foot Krutch – Oxygen Inhale (Album Review)


Originally posted on New Christian Videos:


Thousand Foot Krutch is coming out with their 9th album on August 26th. The Dove Award Nominated band comes out with their 2ndindependent album, raising money with Pledge Music from their fans. TFK’s single “Light Up The Sky” was featured on EA Sports NHL in 2013, also on ESPN in 2012 along with the song “Let The Sparks Fly” which was also featured on NASCAR in 2012. The band has been nominated for a lot of different things on GMA, Dove Award and Juno Award. They have also been featured on several other things, including, NFL Super Bowl, GI Joe, ESPN, NASCAR etc. TFK has over 1 million Facebook fans, over 96,000 Twitter followers and on their music video “War of Change” over 3.5 million views. That’s impressive.

Now let’s talk about their upcoming album Oxygen: Inhale! I think this album is a lot different than their last album “The End is Where We Begin” that came out in 2012. It has kind of a Linkin Park feel to it. I must say that Trevor McNevan’s voice has gotten a lot rougher over the years. Now whether that’s a good or bad thing, I’ll let you decide when you buy the album. This album is a step in a direction. A direction different then their last album, a good step let me just add. I think this album has a lot of songs that could become anthems, and with that said let’s look at each track.

Album Review: Anchor-Colton Dixon

American Idol has an interesting track record with contestants. In recent years, few have gone on to become successful artists, but Season 10 remains a shining point of this decade. Both Phillip Phillips and Colton Dixon have gone on to become upcoming household names in their respective genres. This week, Colton Dixon released his sophomore album, Anchor, and it is with much joy that I say it is a huge improvement over the already solid A Messenger, his debut effort. Let’s take a look at Anchor in a little more detail, as I show you why it is one of my absolute favorite works of 2014, and possibly one of my favorites of all Christian albums I’ve ever listened to.

The Ramble FB Cover

1 Year of Rambling

One year ago today I posted my first post in a long time What Is Love, I didn’t know then i would call it The Ramble, I called it John on WordPress, for a little while actually. Then i realized all i was doing was rambling so i decided to call it what it is now. I started doing this because Matt had started a blog which inspired me to start blogging on my blog again, somewhere along the line i asked Matt if he would join me on my blog so that i could bring more content to the readers. Here we are a year later! I am excited to continue this journey with you!

I hope you enjoy reading this and keep coming back and tell your friends to check us out! You guys are awesome! We have over 70 followers on this blog and we are still growing! Its amazing!

The Time A Con Artist Swindled Me

So, here’s a story about when I went to New Orleans last month. Everyone here at home loves it when I tell it, so I figured I would share it with you all even though it probably won’t come across as funny through text. This is a true story about the time I was swindled by a con artist. The lesson? Never get swindled by a con artist.

Heaven Is For Real (Movie Review)

So i just got around to watching Heaven Is For Real, wanted to watch in the theaters but didn’t get around to it. I loved the movie, id give it a 5 out of 5! The father Todd kinda reminded me of myself.

So the movie was about this kid who basically died and went to heaven and came back. Well he didn’t actually die but during surgery is when he went to heaven. His father is a preacher and at first for a while he doesn’t believe his son. That causes problems with him and his church but after the son tells the dad that he saw his dads granddad and then tells his mom about how he say the daughter that died in the moms stomach and was in heaven the believe him.

Its a good movie! i recommend it! Thanks for taking the time to read this and have a good day!

Blog Update 2.3

Hey guys, so its been a while since i did an update post. I about said update video there! I know I promised a lot of things I was gonna do on this blog this summer and I didn’t do them. I’m sorry, its just been a busy summer and things get away from you. I can’t promise anything soon either, school is starting for me very soon and so I have to get back into the routine of that. I hope I can at least get a post out once a week but i cant promise that, in fact more then likely i won’t. Making a blog post requires having something to blog about, when i watch a new movie i can make a movie review, when i go on a trip i can talk about that. So it all depends on what goes on in my life, sometimes its just a detailed thought i have.

Bottom line, when i have something to talk about i will make a post! Matt usually posts once a week and that’s great, i would love to have more writers on this blog, my vision for this blog is to have one or more posts per day on  the weekdays. If you would like to be a writer on this blog please contact us.

Well that’s all for this update! Thank you for reading this and for following this blog! Please share it with your friends and have them follow the blog!

R.I.P. Robin Williams

Robin Williams apparently committed suicide yesterday. He will truly be missed. I know my favorite movies he was in were The Night In The Museum series and RV and Hook, Robots and probably a few others that i cant think of at the moment. This will be short post but i just wanted to recognize RW. He was a great actor but i guess he was going through a lot of depression. I was looking through his twitter photos last night and i personally could see a lot of pain behind his eyes in most of the photos. I hope hes in a better place now.

Rest In Peace Robin Williams
