Just got back from a retreat and realized that I have nothing to post.  So just for fun, I am posting some singing that I did to learn how to mix vocals in my audio program. That is myself in three part harmony....with myself. (magic!)

It is also Mother's Day.

My father was Irish-Roman-Catholic (pronounced "Irishromancatholic") and my mom, until her later years when she came home to the Catholic Church, was a Southern Baptist, though she never went to services.

I fondly remember coming home from Mass on Sunday mornings and finding my mom in the kitchen frying chicken (and every once in a while, rabbit) with the AM radio playing a fiery preacher. This was the theme song to the show and my mom always sang along with it.

Let me know what you think of my "redition"

I had made mention a few  episodes back that I would post the entire song I use for the DeaconCast.Net theme. I chose the theme based on a number of factors.

First of all, it is pod-cast-safe  or Podsafe*.  It is a shame that has to be a consideration.

The second was the upbeat nature of the music.  It's fun and has a tempo that works well for the show. It's clean and refreshing, (like a new piece of gum). It is not to everyone's taste, I'm sure.

Third, and surprizingly, last determining factor was its message. Granted, it is a good and positive message that fits the general upbeat nature of the show. But a person could find such music anywhere.

Please know that theology never entered into the choice. While the Catholic Church has much music that can teach and edify and even be theological in nature, I don't take pop Christian music as being, necessarily, correct in its understanding of Jesus Christ, His nature or the teaching of His Bride, the Church.

DJ Digital Josh is a very talented young man and I thank him for makiing his music available for use.  He is a man who is trying, through his art, to bring the good news of Jesus to everyone who will listen.

If you like what you hear, let him know, if not, let me know and remember, God IS Good!

*Podsafe is a term created in the podcasting community to refer to any work which, through its licensing, specifically allows the use of the work in podcasting, regardless of restrictions the same work might have in other realms. For example, a song may be legal to use in podcasts, but may need to be purchased or have royalties paid for over-the-air radio use, television use, and possibly even personal use.

I am preparing to launch a new series on the Diaconate and New Media. I found this video from Australia explaining new media policies to employees. Well done, clever, and good advice. Thought this would be a good place to start the series...... certainly the easiest since it's already done for me

So Stoked!

As you may be aware, this is a pretty new podcast, and getting the word out can be a bit difficult. There are literally thousands of podcasts out there and a lot of Catholic ones, all vying for your ear and attention.  So imagine my surprise when DeaconCast.Net got a mention on the highly rated Catholic Underground podcast. Now I know how an author feels when he gets a shout out from Oprah!

Just a little something I found interesting. I sure would like to drive this Pagani Huyara..... so what if it doesn't have a passenger air bag!
