echoes of athenian idols

Friday, August 29, 2003:

just want to plug the wee beautiful pic blog again. it is looking to be one of the most original and most interesting blogs i have seen for a long time.

here is a sample post for ya:

"I talked more with haggis about why he doesn't see angels. After chatting, it turns out he doesn't really SEE birds or even persons either. He says it is common nowadays to walk down a street and not SEE persons - we 'walk through' a blur of persons - and we call it: 'people'. We don't really see a 'bird' or 'flower' or 'tree'; we 'notice' a blur of outside stuff - and call it 'nature'. I have a question: how do you make friends with a blur??

p.s. I better explain about the angels then: they are about whats essential, specific and unique INSIDE the world around us.

p.p.s Just had a thought - maybe you hear them? like we see them - you use all kinds of words that describe whats inside and important about people and places and stuff don't you! just a thought!"

not much to report for a while; the big echo news at the moment is that jonny baker (not the famous one, although it depends who you know i suppose!) is starting to work for echo next week in a part-time capacity, which i'm really looking forward to.
we've also got a few little projects in the pipeline which you'll hear about over the coming months...
nice post by
emergent kiwi about the new piglet movie. might want to go and see it now.

This is the echo weblog. An echo is somewhere between a voice and no voice, somewhere between hearing and not hearing, and somewhere between knowing and not knowing. It's a place of faith and doubt. It's for all those trying to shed their snake skins of tradition, pride, ignorance, prejudice, and trying to work things out for themselves. It's for those caught dancing in the dichotomy of clubbing and christianity, and still trying to follow Christ.
a few of us were discussing what songs the disciples hummed to themselves as they walked home on ascension day....which do you think it was?
'leaving on a jet plane' - like in armageddon (the film that is, not the real thing)
anything by 'air'
'lifted' by 'the lighthouse family'
'up, up and away' by 'andy williams'
'i believe i can fly' by 'r kelly'
'reach for the stars' by 's club'
'stairway to heaven' by 'led zeppelin' (or rolf harris, depends on your taste)
'the only way is up' by 'yazz and the plastic population'
'i'll fly away' by 'alison krauss'
'movin on up' by 'primal scream'
