Who is this Jamin guy anyway?
I am the husband of one and the father of nine. I was created to sing, to worship, to encourage, and to be steady. I am the Owner & Executive Director of Trinity Arts Center, a multi-disciplinary Arts Center in Eastern Tennessee, and the President of Trinity Arts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization focused on funding arts education and performance. I've been involved with four music projects in my life -- Hot Pink Turtle, Spin Radio, Stand Like Stone, and of course, Jamin Rathbun.

Psalm 33:1-5
Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.

I intended to post some more thoughts on worship and music that (I hope) will add to the stuff from Wednesday and Thursday but... My to-do list has got me scrambling a bit to end the week. I'll just pick again it up after the weekend. Have a good one! = )

Colonel Mustard did it with the rope in the study.
Actually, I don't think that's an option in this amazing "game" from the BBC.

The basic gist of the game goes something like this:

The BBC, for some reason, put together a massive interactive online game based on the faux pop idol, Jamie Kane. Jay Is Games (where I found the game) posted this description:

"Players will visit secret websites, receive personalized emails, and use specialized Flash applications that have all been ingeniously woven together to form this innovative game. For example, players will "chat" with characters in the game by launching a custom Flash app made to simulate an instant messaging (IM) client.

This is no ordinary Web game, and it is very different than anything previously reviewed here. Expect that it will take about 20 minutes a day to play, and there are 15 days worth of puzzles to solve."

I'm only on Day 1 so I'm not sure what all is coming down the pipe but -- so far -- I'm really impressed by the extent of the materials and the artificial intelligence built into some of the interactive features.

For example: While I was chatting with a virtual fan of Jamie Kane, I mentioned the TV show "House." The virtual fan responded by asking "Isn't Hugh Laurie in that?" Pretty amazing. = )

Anyway... It may all turn out to be a huge bore and I won't keep it up for 15 days but... From what I've seen so far, I'll probably hang in there just to see what else they have in store. If it sounds like your kind of thing... Check it out.

P.S. A company called Preloaded designed most of the game components. If you're a web developer or designer... Their site is worth a peek.

I hung in there for about 5 days but -- it just wasn't cool enough for me to keep doing. Nice idea. A little silly. Five days was enough. = )
