But, he can't be a man 'cause...

I have been mulling over this graph for a wee while now... with this thought running through my head:
Not everyone has an iPhone!
iPhones are very popular... there is no getting over that, I have TWO for goodness sake! According to Flickr, they are the camera phone of now... even though the camera is not the best... rocking 2 megapixels and no flash on the 1st gen & 3g... and a 3 megapixel on the 3GS.

Thing is... there are better camera phones out there: The LG Pixon has a TWELVE megapixel camera... compare this with my Nikon d60 dSLR which has 10.something mp and you'll get a sense of my astonishment at this fact - a phone that has more mp than my dSLR.

At this point you could argue about lenses and all that... that's not the point... its just crazy to think there is a phone out there that is rocking double figures in the mp department... one that is FREE on a £40 per month call plan.

Where am I going with this post, I hear you ask. Well... that's a good question and its got nothing really to do with tech and more to do with faith.

I've been considering the concept of singularity_ the idea that thats its "my way... or the highway". I see it all the time... this subtle fascism. I see it in politics... I see it in faith... I see it in the way we generalise and label people.

I think there is a lyric in the Rolling Stones song "satisfaction" that goes...
When I'm watchin' my TV
And a man comes on to tell me
How white my shirts can be
But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
The same cigarettes as me
I don't know the context of the lyric but I think the fact I don't smoke highlights the absurdity of such a statement... but it is, regardless whether Mick was singing it literally or ironically, a singular statement.

Let's paraphrase this lyric...
When I'm watchin' my TV
And a man comes on to tell me
How white my shirts can be
But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't use
The same iPhone as me
Silly... why? because not everyone has an iPhone!

So why is it that we have a singular approach to other elements of our life?
  • Politics not as liberal as mine... you are not a man!
  • Politics not as conservative as mine... you are not a man!
  • You don't listen to (insert band name)... you are not a man!
We judge / put down / dismiss people because they are different from us... and, to be honest, its nonsense. I think about all the grief Obama is getting from being "a socialist"... OMGoodness... some people do not have a clue.

Think about it in terms of faith. Instead of following Jesus' assertion that we should love God and love our neighbour... in terms of those we share our faith with... we become judgemental and all singular.
  • You don't believe in the doctrinal creed I believe... you are not a Christian!
  • You don't express your faith the way I do... you are not a Christian!
  • You don't worship the way I do... you are not a Christian!
  • You go to places I don't... you are not a Christian!
  • You hang out with people I don't... you are not a Christian!
It just disturbs me when people get like this. I follow a disparate group of folks on Twitter who use the outlaw preachers hashtag. I find their focus on grace and God's love to be powerful & inspirational.

Thing is... not everyone does. Fairplay... I'm not going to tell you what to believe... but I do think if you don't get what they are saying... you should express this in a loving and gracious manner. Instead, the folk who don't get the outlaw preachers try to beat them down with a form of singularity that I mentioned above. It breaks my heart, to be honest.

Before I go on... I need to stress that there are things that form the foundation of our belief_ Jesus as the Saviour of mankind, for example.
You were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. You have one Master, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who rules over all, works through all, and is present in all. Everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness.

But that doesn't mean you should all look and speak and act the same.
Ephesians 4: 4-7 (The Message)

How we express our faith_ how we look... how we speak... how we act... should not be a singular thing. We shouldn't expect everyone to look, speak and act as we do.

Two books that have meant a lot to me of late is a generous orthodoxy by Brian McLarenand sacred pathways by Garry Thomas. Both books attack, in their own way, this idea of singularity.

They demonstrate the value in our diversity... in our plurality... in our community. They highlight the fact that we see things differently... interpret things differently... place emphasis on different things.

One of the things I love about the "emerging" conversation is the fact it IS a conversation. There is no assumption as to a singularity of expression. People need to talk... discuss... engage... with each other to understand points of commonality... and even when there are points of disagreement... they are discussed in a loving manner. In a manner that demonstrates the fact we are His disciples.

Its the key benefit of the Tower of Babel... the fact that we need to engage... discuss... find commonality. Stewart and I have discussed this over coffee. We can't take anything for granted... there is no singularity of thought even though we are walking together, going in similar directions.

Singularity of thought is destructive... in its laziness, arrogance and presumption. We need more discussion and relational engagement... more graciousness & gentle kindness.

The future is plural... and for the followers of God in the way of Jesus to have an influence in this future... we need to learn this.

Not everyone has an iPhone!

I'm loving BATTLES

if you like challenging music... something that inspires and excites... then I would recommend Battles to you. Enjoy these tracks from their album Mirrored.

New tunes :: "uncertainty" by cousin silas

I'm kind of emotional as I type this... but I am SOOOO stoked to tell you that uncertainty has been released. Cousin Silas is an awesome ambient electronica producer and a dear email friend... and I am in seventh heaven listening to his latest release.

This is the album I mentioned previously that contains two tracks that were inspired by my photos... and I have to say I am proud to be associated with them. Truly beautiful and exemplary of the ambient genre.

In fact, this album is what ambient music is to me. It is the culmination. It is the diary definition...

It is simply breathtaking. Languid. Sublime. Pastoral. Very relaxing. It feeds me... sustains me... inspires the deep recesses of my mind and my soul to dream. It haunts me... envelops me... encourages me to relax... to let go and to drift.

Don't get me wrong... this isn't some sonic noodling... someone farting about with their vast collection of vintage synths... as some in the genre are fond of doing. Uncertainty is an intricately crafted body of work... that is sonically challenging and diverse. It is fresh and new... and shows where Cousin Silas has progressed as an artist.

It would be unfair for me to pick out songs... but I am partial to "the tunnel was blocked with something" and "a drop in temperature"... and I do naturally gravitate towards "Strathclyde Park Loch" and "three chimneys with ladder".

I have a feeling this album will be in my top five of 2009... and on my iPhone for a very long time.

I am humbled to have been part of the creative process, however small, and am grateful to folks like Cousin Silas for crafting such achingly beautiful music and releasing it for free.

Please check it out.

September 09's calendar

I'm getting in early with September 09's calendar... I hope you like it?

It was taken in the grounds of Kilgraston School when we were there for Summer School 09.

Here's the Mac version... and here's the Windows version.



This is cool :: Imogen Heap on Current TV

Continuing with the Imogen Heap theme... I thought this short vid on Current TV was interesting. I love the fact she's experimenting with "weird and wonderful" instrumentation.

This is cool :: "Canvas" by Imogen Heap

I'm a fan of Imogen Heap and I am mighty impressed by the video for her song "Canvas" from her new album "Ellipse" ::

This is cool :: "Tell her something true" by takebrokenme

Tell her something true., originally uploaded by rainbowpromise.

My dear friend_ Laura aka takebrokenme_ is doing something on special on Flickr.

When I say "special" I really me "extra special" because ALL her pics are special, imho.

Anyway... click on the pic above and follow her instructions.


This is cool :: Tokyo Camera Style

I've got slightly obsessed with cameras of late... and have really enjoyed oooohing & aaaahing at the cameras on display on Its like The Sartorialist for analogue Japanese cameras. Here's some skinny on the blog ::
"By making photographs, they are tools with which one can express their personal taste and private sensibilities. At the same time they physically exist as expressions of these same concepts. The relationship one has with their cameras affects their approach to making a picture.

People who shoot film simply do because they choose to, and the Photo Culture of Tokyo is full of film camera users. When I meet them out on the streets I ask to photograph their camera, and usually post it here the same day../"
I like!

Oh and btw... if you don't dip into The Sartorialist then you should... their street portraiture is awesome, imho.

this looks cool :: Gentlemen Broncos

From the director of Nacho Libre and Napoleon Dynamite... this film looks hilarious!

(via kitsune noir with thanks)

Edwin does not fart... apparently

I picked up a new iPhone photography app called Edwin because I want to expand the range of "looks" my pics have (taking onboard the criticism on my iPhoneography showcase)... and I have to say I am impressed so far.

Here's a pic I took with the app earlier today ::

Olly reading "Midnight Sun" on her iPhone

I love Olly... she's my muse :-)

Anyway... I am loving this app. It has various frames for pics (like "photo" above or "instant") and various photo filters (such as "lomo" or "holga") that combine help to enhance the pics you take.

It does have an annoying UI that involves shaking your iPhone to develop the pic... which some may find fun but I'm starting to tire of it. That said... its a small annoyance_ all in.

I look forward to sharing more pics taken using the app on my Flickr... but I have to say... I'm loving to combo of "photo" and "holga" ::

Pavilion's steps

If you want to know why Edwin doesn't fart... or, for that matter, why they've called their app "Edwin"... go here.

Well worth checking out... if you have an iPhone.

this is cool :: Fist Full of Fur

Fist Full Of Fur from Ummm Productions on Vimeo.

Awesome video backed by an awesome Royksopp track... I am amazed at what can be done with photography_ 5,205 photos were used to create this film. Wow! Ummm Productions... you rock!

(via notcot #24,325 and the with thanks)

I'm featured on iPhoneography... is a fab blog about taking pictures with the iPhone - it features strong editorials on the myriad of camera/picture apps out there & also showcases folks who take pics with their iPhones. I'm totally stoked because yesterday I was showcased. I did put myself up for it_ nothing ventured, nothing gained_ but didn't think they'd pick me... probably due to the quality of pics on showcased so far.

This kind of puts me "out there" and opens me up for criticism... as I type the post has received 2 comments_ 1 positive and 1 critical. I'm going to take the critical one onboard... with a pinch of salt and a cheeky smile. As for the positive one... well I guess I'll need a bigger door frame to allow my now gargantuan heid to pass freely through.

Totally elated..! I now need to build on this. Move forward.

Sounds good_ Kari Jobe

Posted via web from headphonaught's posterous

I'm not the hugest fan of "Christian" music... I find it too easy to generalize and way too bland for my taste. I prefer musicians who have lived who also happen to be Christians... if you get what I mean?!

That said... there have been a number of bands and singers who stand out for me with "Christian" music: Keith Green, Iona, Rita Springer, Brooke Fraser, So Elated, and the mighty Singing Company. They are excellent in and of themselves... and whilst their music is worship or contemplative or inspirational or whatever... it also stands out as strong, well written and stirring.

I can now add Kari Jobe to this list. Olly turned me onto her last night and I have, so far, listened to her album three times today. Her voice... her lyrics... and the instrumentation on the album are just so right now for me. Its more muted, low key and subtle. It is still overtly Christian but done very well... there are no "Jesus is my boyfriend" type songs, for example.

Acoustic guitars... piano... well intentioned drums... wrap together with the odd celo or pipe... and Kari's delicate voice work to create a "less is more" ambience.

Stand out tracks include beautiful, my beloved, and revelation song... in what is an excellent album. Well worth your attention.

If you are on Spotify... here's a link to the album :: :: check it out and spread the word.

Thank You All!

Thank You All! (230/365), originally uploaded by Headphonaught.

I just wanted to take some time out to say...


for your comments, messages, texts, phonecalls and presents. Its great to be me right now... and you all have contributed to that.

Special thanks to Olly and the we'ans for their love and kind gifts... I especially liked the new MOBY CD and the film "Knowing"_ both have blown my socks off... but not for the same reason.

Thanks to swiss miss for turning my head to the Dieter Rams pool on Flickr.

I know nothing about Herr Rams other than he was the Head of Design at Braun. This collection of products attributed to him is astounding... and really intrigues the design geek within me.

Summerschool09_ some thoughts on SS09

Dancin'_ 02

Summer School this year was a rollercoaster of emotion for me_ with some real highs and lows.

It is tremendous to be surrounded by close friends: Paul & Jen... Yvonne... Jon... Frosty & Tinker... Adam & Karen; as well having space to build up relationships with others like Anne or Martyn. I really fed off the interaction within the staff as well as the engagement with familiar students such as our own kids in Bellshill or the kids in Glenrothes.

This was a real high tempered, unfortunately, with a sense of loss_ I missed my wife and we'ans to bits... and really wished Olly could have been there to share in the experience.

Other highs included the organised fun of "its a knockout" (I lasted 3 seconds on the bouncy duel thing) and the informal games of cricket on the lawn... the freedom to document the week in pictures & observe the progress made was fab too.

I also experienced a level of openness & honesty with the older boys' cell that greatly encouraged me_ their willingness to share & discuss key issues inspired me & reassured me of the progress they are individually making on their faith journeys.

I had the opportunity to meet Anabel Goldie, MSP; Boyd Tunnock & a nurse whose name escapes me for a session Jon & Lorna had organised that provided an opportunity for some of the kids to "interview a Christian". All three were truly down-to-earth inspirations as examples of Christians in society. I found Anabel Goldie particularly engaging because she seemed so inclusive and pragmatic... certainly not how she and her colleagues are presented in the media.

I also got the opportunity to speak with the alove boys :: Matt White, Matt Leeder & Graeme Hodge :: which I enjoyed immensely. They are all talented men of God.

Thing is... all the people I came into contact with were and are gifted men and women of God.

Matt's thought on the Sunday night really dovetailed with the verse we had been using for a focal point :: Micah 6:8
But he's already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It's quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbour, be compassionate and loyal in your love, And don't take yourself too seriously - take God seriously.
(The Message)

He really challenged the kids to live as God wants them to.

The opportunity to lead prayers on Tuesday morning & to be involved, albeit impromtu, in the "greeting meeting" were both great pluses too. Helping to guide to young souls on their respective journeys of faith was an awesome privilege as well... maybe, in hindsight, my greatest thrill.

I think privileged sums up my experience_ it was a sheer privilege to be there and I hope to be asked back.

As for the lows_ having the role of "enforcer" went against who I am but worked for the most part_ however, with great power comes great responsibility and I am ashamed to say I lost it on two occasions... something I still regret today... but then kids will go out beyond curfew or do stupid things that put themselves in real risk.

That said_ all things considered_ the kids did us proud... both artistically & as people... and I am inspired for the future.

this looks cool :: New York, I love you

I am not ashamed to admit this to you all... but New York, I love you looks like my kind of film. Watch the trailer and you'll see what I mean. Can't wait.

A wee trip on the Union Canal

Union Canal_ 49/36

The we'ans and I had a lovely evening in the company of my Mum & Dad... and their church. One of the chaps in the church hired a canal boat for the evening... as the venue for a wee meal & gathering to send off my folks - they are moving to Motherwell in a couple of weeks.

Linlithgow is truly a special part of Scotland... and this was the first time many of us had been on a canal boat other than for the wee trip at the Falkirk Wheel.

Check out my set :: Union Canal_ 150809 :: on Flickr.



Some random numbers for a Saturday afternoon_
  • I have posted 10,390 pics on Flickr with 143,739 times views since August 2005.
  • I have tweeted 11,174 times on Twitter since March 2007.
  • I have scrobbled 20,022 tracks on Last.FM since February 2006.
  • This is the 2,840th post on the ol' Nanolog since September 2005.
For me_ its not the number of friends I have on these sites but what I've contributed to them that counts_ hence the reason why I haven't mentioned Facebook or the other sites I frequent.

These numbers will change... but the question will stay the same: what do you contribute to the sites you frequent?

this is way cool :: Miike Snow_ "Animal"

Wow! Really imaginative visuals with an excellent level of execution... the song is pretty good too.

(via notcot #24,133 with thanks)

this is way cool :: Peter, Bjorn & John's "Nothing to worry about"

I was talking with Fraser Ramsay via text about age (I'm 35 next week) and then I spotted this video for Peter, Bjorn & John's track "Nothing to worry about". I can't even bust the moves these guys can and do in Yoyogi Park. Awesome and very funny too...

(via with thanks)

Loving this :: "le migre EP" by small radio

My friend_ Scott Buchanan aka radioscotvoid_ an expat Scot living large in Salem, MA; has joined forces with fellow Scot_ Small Colin_ to create a fab EP entitled "Le Migre"... released on the rec72 netlabel.

Here's more:
The songs on Le Migre EP have been produced over the last two years. Scott did two tracks, and so did Colin; then each of them enhanced it with his own style and precision.
I am well impressed with their sound_ its fresh... powerfully dense & imaginative... yet nicely relaxed & downtempo. So much so... it reminds me of Boards of Canada or Williamson in places... and is a timely reminder of why I love netaudio so much.

Well recommended! Nice job Scott!

This looks cool :: Lemonade

As the saying goes_
"When life throws you lemons... make lemonade"
and that's exactly what have done_
More than 70,000 advertising professionals have lost their jobs in this Great Recession. Lemonade is about what happens when people who were once paid to be creative in advertising are forced to be creative with their own lives.

New Tyres (224/365)

New Tyres (224/365), originally uploaded by Headphonaught.

I finally got tyres for my BSA Javelin... and for now the bike is complete. Halfords sorted me out... albeit... it did feel like forever. 26" 1 1/4 is an unusual size... and they struggled to find a tyre that fitted. They came through... getting the tyres directly from Raleigh's supplier in China... after trying nearly every tyre they had in stock.

She feels great to ride... with the tyres providing more grip than the previous originals.


Now... if only it would stop raining.

Level Magazine

My fave mag of the late 90s - 99 to 2000, to be precise - has resurfaced on the 'tinterweb. Level truly lived up to its tag line of all things good introducing me to artists like Cornelius or brands like BAPE long before the mainstream caught a sniff. I still have all 13 editions up in the loft.

I loved the fact that there were no rules... they didn't follow the rigidity of music or fashion mags... they were "a bit of this, a bit of that"... an eclecticism that caught the spirit of my life at that time. I was gutted when it folded... print media was never the same - this was a mag for me that could inform and inspire in ways that no other mag has since. It shaped my tastes in so many ways, be it music or design or even photography.

So this is why I am delighted it lives on... on the 'tinterweb. Check it out.

My thanks to notcot #24,024 for reminding me how good this mag is/was.

First set of photos from my Holga 135 & Wide Pic

On Argyle Street

This is one of the 16 pics from my first spool in my Holga 135. To be honest I am a wee bit disappointed. Not with the pics I have but with the fact I only got 16 from a 36 frame film... I am also unsure why I never got the "lomo" vibe from some of them - they seem normal, if that makes sense? I would have liked to have seen all 36... I wonder if the lassie in ASDA has made a judgement call on the remainder and binned some because she didn't "get" them. Either that or I was rubbish!

The remaining Holga pics are available here.

GoMA_ 01

This, on the other hand, is one of the 14 pics from my first spool in my "Wide Pic" camera. The pics look fab in Flickr but got all cropped in ASDA... losing the effect.

The remaining "Wide Pic" photos are available here.

John Hughes 80s montage

I grew up on John Hughes' films: The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, & Some Kind of Wonderful being my particular teen angsty favourites... along with Home Alone and Planes, Trains & Automobiles. He had talent and will be missed.

Mini Tunnocks Wafers

I am so stoked! Just spent a couple of hours in the company of Boyd Tunnock & Annabel Goldie.
As part of the Summer School curriculum, Jon & Lorna organised an optional discussion group called "Interview with a Christian" and the first group included Boyd (the big chief at Tunnocks), Annabel (Member of the Scottish Parliament & Leader of the Conservatives in Scotland), and Ellen Watt (a staff nurse at Stobhill Hospital).
All three individuals were thoroughly engaging, spirited & animated... recounting their personal experiences in connection with their own journeys in faith.
Afterwards... we entertained Boyd, Annabel & Jim Hamilton (Boyd's friend & retired owner of Hamilton's Dairies)... and Boyd introduced us to his latest product: a tub of MINI caramel wafers (pictured above).
They are absolutely brilliant! A small wafer covered in chocolate. In fact, the chocolate percentage is 50% instead of the normal 33% for wafers... which makes them so moorish & delightful.
A brilliant product from a brilliant man.
Today has been a great day!

Summer School '09_ Going well so far

See no, originally uploaded by Headphonaught.

I'm pleased to say things are going well so far at Summer School. No fatalities is always a plus... especially when I haven't committed any of them.

I've been round the practices... I'm documenting the camp with my Nikon D60 for a slideshow on the Saturday festival... and I'm pleased to say everyone is participating. The bands are sounding fab... especially Andrew Irvine on his Telecaster as part of the C Band... and the drama kids look engaged.

Yesterday we had a visit from a team from alove... the Salvation Army's youth... and their contribution was powerfully in_your_face with regards to HIV/AIDS, prayer and being a disciple.

Tom & Tory... planters from Shetland... spoke on prayer. They used the analogy of the beach and suggested you could be one of for types of people when it comes to prayer:

1) A sunbather - someone who basks in the presence of God and soaks up his Light.
2) A surfer - someone who is active in his or her prayer life and can't sit still... preferring, instead, to pray through creative activity.
3) An ice-cream seller - similar to the surfer but with the focus on caring. Someone who responds best to prayer requests and is prepared to not only pray but do something to make best the situation.
4) A snorkeler - Someone who is prepared to dive into something and examine it to some depth.

Good analogies.

In the second session... Graeme Hodge (a former billet & ongoing facebook friend) spoke on HIV/AIDS and sought to raise awareness amongst the group gathered to the real and ongoing threat... He inspired the group to think further on the subject and act in whatever way they can to raise awareness.

Prior to the evening session... I got some time to speak with Matt White (a new friend) & Matt Leader (a facebook friend, now met). Its just a beautiful thing to connect with likeminded people... people who see church in the same way.

In the evening session... Matt White got everyone to blow up balloons depending on the amount of time the various things took up in our lives... things like family, work, church, study, prayer etc... and then tried to fit them into our empty cases that we brought. The idea was to consider the importance of these things in our lives.

Matt Leader then led some worship... followed by a very direct and powerful thought from Matt White... who is wonderfully unique and very funny "on stage". He should be a TV presenter and... ironically... thats what he is working towards being.

The crux of his thought was on discipleship and being serious about following Jesus. He struck a chord with a number of kids when he said... along the lines of... don't call yourself a Christian if you are not prepared to live as a Christian. Don't bring the name of Jesus and your fellow Christians down. Controversial to some... that required some unpacking later in cells.

So yeah... its going well so far.

That said... I'm missing my Olly and my we'ans to bits.

Fave tunes :: "Pet Sounds" :: Beach Boys

Music for me is a journey... one that runs from the unknown to the known... the unfamiliar to the familiar.
I hear about something... a new band or a new album... I check it out & in doind so... start the journey.
I believe it's important to have a healthy balance of albums at various stages in this journey. It's just as important to discover new music as it is to cherish your "classics".
Pet Sounds is a classic for me. It is a sonic blanket of comfort & familiarity. When I am down or anxious (as I am now) it picks me up & reassures me that "as long as there are stars above me" I'll be ok.
Thing is... for me... this album can't be surpassed for one reason... it doesn't feel stale. It is fresh & new... albeit familiar... on every listen. It's like someone sparying the new car smell into the same car each day. Same car... just feels new.
Sonically, it is awesome... uniquely varied & dense... with clever orchestration & vocal harmonies that are wonderfully rich & vibrant. There are some weird instrumentation in the mix that blends superbly with the more usual guitars, keys & drums... I particularly like the bicycle horn & the basoon (I think)... they add flavour to the sound.
If you don't own this album... then you should. It is worthy of it's classic status, imho at least.
