Thanks to Logan’s post a few weeks ago, I have been introduced to an absolutely fabulous worship band called Kings Kaleidoscope (hereafter KK). If you’ve never heard of them, go buy their album, Becoming Who We Are, right now. I did the very same thing after reading Logan’s review and I am so glad that […]
Josh Caroll wrote a nice post last week on how doctoral thesis writing is nothing like running a marathon, I particularly appreciated his final point that ‘Unlike a marathon, the end is not in sight.’ Whilst by that Josh means that ‘you feel like you will never really finish the thesis,’ for me ‘the end […]

Joy. Sadness. Anger. Disgust. Fear. These emotions are the key figures in Disney’s film, Inside Out. Last week, I watched the movie and enjoyed the interplay between the different emotions as characters inside Riley’s head. The movie shows how the different emotions operate and communicate inside of her, and how each of her memories are […]
In the past few years, the Seattle-based, 10-piece band Kings Kaleidoscope (hereafter “KK”), has grown both in skill and popularity. In October of last year, they released their first full-length studio album, Becoming Who We Are, chock full of original songs and a few inventive covers. The album peaked at #9 on the Billboard chart “US Christian […]
