FRIDAY INSTIGATION

Back with another batch of things that drive me crazy. I’m a little less grumpy this week since the new record was released, but it turns out that church world is still just as baffling and weird.

Debate is a good thing. Somewhere in the worship culture we’ve decided that every new album is good, all sermons are theologically sound and there are no bad worship songs.

I don’t submit these little rants for the sake of venting (although it helps.) I do it because some stuff is great and some stuff isn’t. And it should be talked about.

-Have received two royalty statements regarding digital sales of new album and seen $0 from the new record. Thinking there’s an accounting problem somewhere. Wasn’t expecting to sell thousands or anything, but know of at least a few sales that aren’t showing up in my statements.

-Did you know there’s another Todd Wright that’s a singer/songwriter? He’s pretty good. But I sure hope my royalties aren’t going to him!

-I promised backers a song devotional when my new record came out. It’s been done for months, but my proofreader hasn’t finished it. Wondering if I should release it, warts and all?

-My friend, Ross King, starts work on a new worship project next week and I’m really excited. Probably because I’ve got two c0-writes on the record! (We Will Remember and Hallelujah For The Cross.) I’m really proud of Hallelujah…think y’all will dig it.

-Speaking of songs. Just this week remembered an old, old song of mine called My Savior. Thinking of doing a little demo of it and making it available for free download. That might be fun.

-This Sunday is the no-guitar set. Excited, but wondering if it’ll be weird for everybody else!

-Christian music artists are still retweeting compliments for their music. Is somebody gonna’ put a stop to this or do I have to do it?

-You know what’s even more enjoyable? Christian music artists who use twitter just to promote shows.

-Buying/reading e-books is pretty much all upside, but I miss that feeling of getting a real book in the mail.
