    was cool to have jess hong co-lead worship. an amazing person, with a heart that loves the Lord!
    we are blessed to have her be on staff at Quest.
    this sunday was a precursor as she gets ready to lead this coming sunday…

    working hard? hardly working?… 

    now you can work, sleep, work and sleep, etc…  🙂
    if you’re wondering what to get viv and i for our wedding (ok, you got me. she wants this more than i do! :)), or my early Christmas gift:

    The Future of Telecommuting... is almost here!

    The Future of Telecommuting... is almost here!

    now, several years back, i had experimented with a similar setup which allowed me to lay on the floor and have my laptop propped over my head with a chair. then, i used a wireless keyboard and mouse placed over  my belly. it was awesome!
    in other words = pure genius…

    but later, i would discover *two things which would cause me to cease using this method:
    1. i kept falling asleep in the middle of doing my work, and
    2. it was a hassle setting this up.

    so i asked my friend, roy (who’s an architect) if he could help me design something so i could work while laying down. and he AGREED that he could help me… by saying:
    do one or the other, either sleep on your bed or work at a table. don’t do both!

    man… i should’ve listened.  😦
    (More …)

      how much does this thing cost? it reminds me of a hospital bed- maybe you should just get one of those so you could also hook up an iv/catheter, and then you’d NEVER have to even move!

      if you want to think about how really creepy technology can be…read this short story from 1909 and wonder why we’re letting the internet take over our lives…

      david: can you help me pick up a hospital bed up from uw and configure it?
      leah: don’t have time to read the whole link, if you can summarize and give me a book report by first thing monday morning. thanks. 😉

    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.07.20… 

    back to leading. it had been a couple of weeks. it was nice being on a break and nice to return.
    knowing that it was going to be a scorcher on that sunday, i decided to have katey and grace take lead on most of the songs. it was a blessing to have them lead the church w/ their voice. they sounded awesome. seriously… awesome!

    i had someone come up after service and say:
    man, worship sounded so good today… not sure what it was…”
    was it because of katey’s and grace’s voice?” i asked.
    THAT’S IT! and plus you weren’t singing much!” they shot back.

    but, it’s true. i am so blessed and encouraged when i get to come alongside not only singers like these two, but the entire band that is gifted and using their gifts to honor God. gives me such joy to be able to do this…

    iPhone 2.0 craze… wth? 

    First Guy w/ iPhone 2.0

    First Guy w/ iPhone 2.0

    this is a bit much…

    don’t get me wrong, i think apple hit it out of the park w/ the design + usability of this phone. seriously, in terms of UI, i think it’s the best of all the phones that are out right now. the zoom in/out (multi-touch), internal tilt sensor… it ROCKS.

    but only one year later for the 2nd version of the iPhone and it lacks so many desirable features best summed up in this gizmodo picture:

    what iPhone 2.0 is lacking

    * btw, that guy w/ the iPhone bag is not me…
    ** now, if sprint released the iPhone, i might have to eat my own words and get it.  😉

    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.07.06… 

    this is a little late being posted…
    anyway, worship this past sunday was led by jin on vox + guitar.
    very stripped down set.
    eunice soh on vox + piano while i was on the drumset again providing rhythm…
    though there were was only three of us, it sounded surprisingly full and warm.

    * funny story, since it was just jin, eunice and i, someone had gone up to eunice and asked her if we were all related. 😉

    worship setlist @ Q – 2008.06.29… [praise + prayer centric] 

    had a great service this past sunday. mixed it up a bit… had our praise + prayer service.
    wanted to be more intentional and create a contemplative/meditative feel to the service by the worship songs that we chose and the flow of it from songs to prayers to the elements.
    looking over the setlist, i didn’t realize we did SO many songs… but it was nice.
    (* i have a funny story about “how deep the Father’s love for us” and how i had to be cued by grace because i kept messing up the time signature, if you buy me coffee @ Q Cafe i’ll tell you about this!)

    anyway, i think we helped create the space for people to just enter into a time of intimacy and a place of prayer… i know it was good for my soul and hopefully the church as well.
    i shared during a time of praying for healing… that my personal request is for more patience and understanding and to have the joy of the Lord as my strength.

    your continual prayers that i would learn how to extend God’s joy, peace, patience, grace and love to all would rock!
