We are all stamps, let us pray...

I met today with Cameron, my churchie mate and minister at St Johns Park Anglican and he shared an interesting concept of what a Christian is under God, and to each other through the Body of Christ. He made a comment about being a stamp collector, not needing to meet with other collectors to have a collection of stamps. This is in reference of Christian people meeting together. We don't need to be around others to grow in Christ.

Fellowship is essential though, so meeting together is a part of expanding our understanding and working as the community that makes up His Body. We also need to understand that we are all gifted and unique in our on ways, and this makes us unique stamps in God's collection.

So we all make up God's stamp album.

Just went back to iTunes to see what was new, and when I went to download a new song (an old song, which I will call new because it was only just added to my collection) it told me I needed iTunes 7.0 or more! The outrage of it all.

I was annoyed that these big corporates will continue to take my money away with their advertising and continuous 'nessecary' downloads. Haven't they understood that they are now the biggest music download company in the world and that they don't need to keep draining everyones pockets?
No, my mistake. This is run by Apple, and that says a lot.

What I do like is the new interface that allows you to view the album cover of the track currently playing, almost as though you are looking at the albums in the window of a jukebox.

If Windows Media Player picked up on this I would be even happier because thats where I copy all my music to in order to put it into my MP3 player. I didn't want an iPod - they smell funny.

RAWR's New Champion

Since the contest between Andrew Dee and Jono was a no contest, RAWR's championship was contested by laying the title in the middle of the ring, with all contenders on the outside - the first to nab the title is the new title holder.

Aalya won. She is the new title holder!

Crikey Steve. Farewell to an Icon

Yesterday one of Australia's icons was killed while doing what he loved. Steve Irwin was filming a new episode for his documentary/television show when he was attacked and eventually killed in a remote part of The Great Barrier Reef on Queensland's east coast.

Like many others, I feel that this conservationalist, national icon, father figure and all around true blue aussie will be well missed both here at home by his family and by all those who appreciated what he did for Australia.
Probably one of the best summaries I have read about his life was made by Andrew Denton from Enough Rope on the ABC:

"I never saw a side to him that was different to his public side. He lived in capital letters and he seemed to have a lot of exclamation marks with him as well"

Australian Prime Minister John Howard:

"I am quite shocked and distressed at Steve Irwin's sudden, untimely and freakish death. It's a huge loss to Australia. He was a wonderful character. He was a passionate environmentalist."

Phone-lobbing actor Russel Crowe:

"He was the Australian we all aspire to be. He was, and remains, the ultimate wildlife warrior. He touched my heart. I believed in him. I'll miss him. I loved him and I will be there for his family."
