A few months back, iLike discontinued the service that provided our app for the iPhone. If you still have it, it works, but we can’t do any updating of it, and if you don’t already have it, you can’t get it anymore either. Bah.
So, we’ve found a free, cross-platform way to bring all of the best content of our full site to you in mobile form! Just visit our site with a mobile browser, or scan that QR code over there with your device’s camera. Whee! And enjoy.
Hope you all are having a wonderful, and relatively prank-free day. Since we aren’t planning anything sinister for this year, we thought we would revisit a few Oddwalk posts from April Fools Days past:
Having *finally* been featured – long overdue, if you ask us – on that show the kids all love so much, “Glee,” we thought is was worth a repost of our version of Sonseed’s “Jesus is a Friend of Mine,” recorded now almost 2.5 years ago. It has 30,000 views now, far more than any other of our videos on YouTube.
First, our video, then the Glee tribute from last night, then the original, which still holds a special place in our hearts. Enjoy!
Of course, Christ’s selfless death on the cross in the pinnacle of loving acts, but this modern-day story comes close. And to top it off, it’s a former-neghbor and still-friend of Orin and Erin’s that is the center of this story! Watch the video report below, or click here for the article.
For Christ, while we were still helpless, yet died at the appointed time for the ungodly. Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person, though perhaps for a good person one might even find courage to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. How much more then, since we are now justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath. Indeed, if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, once reconciled, will we be saved by his life.
Here’s a quick clip of some Israelite slaves lamenting their pre-Moses lot in life. Remember, one week before this was recorded, these folks didn’t even know the show, let alone which part they might have! Youth Sing Praise really is a miracle each year. Thanks to Erin B for recording!
… an inflatable keytar. Yes, that’s right. Our potential winning visitor hails from perhaps the Stanford Medical School and/or Redwood City, CA, and at 2:15pm pacific time, came to our blog while searching google for “inflatable keytar” – no kidding. See more incriminating stats to the left.
So, should this person identify themselves in the next 24 hours – expiring at 3pm Thursday, pacific time – they will receive their prize, $30 of Oddwalk merchandise of their choice. Just drop an email identifying yourself to email@example.com. Unfortunately, we don’t carry inflatable keytars in our store – perhaps we should. We have used one before though for keytar appreciation day a few years ago.

Anyway. If this person can’t claim their prize, we’ll move on to visitor #30,001 and on until we find our winner. Stay tuned – if you didn’t win yet, you just might! And, there’s always the hope for a giveaway at visit 40,000!
