Here are a couple pics from the Shrine‘s Youth Day Celebration the end of September:
Orin, who was also singing in a choral concert Sunday, wore his tuxedo for a special performance of “Just Because You Can.”
Mike Patin joins in a performance of “Jesus is My Friend” – coincidentally, our YouTube video of that song (a different performance) is now well over 5,500 views, and is being viewed more often than ever, now one view every 5.5 minutes… Sheesh.
Orin’s new favorite keytar action shot.
Notice how the pants are completely unripped.
For more photos, visit our facebook group page, where Erin B has uploaded a number of shots from the weekend. Thanks to all Happy Shriney People for a great weekend!
1) Our video on YouTube (or see below) is already up to 820 views, by far the most rapidly-watched video we’ve ever posted! (The original versions of the song by Sonseed, adding up all the various postings, are well over half-a-million!)
2) We’re now featured, “below the fold” as they say in the newspaper biz, at JesusIsMyFriend.info – a one-stop site for all things “Jesus is My Friend” and Sonseed. Lots of videos, ringtones… Even the full original album available as a free download! Did you need a Jesus Is My Friend Shirt?
UPDATE – Sunday afternoon (9/21), 3:22 – 1,139 views… My goodness, people must be bored…
Another update, been informed the shirts are no longer for sale… sorry, fashionistas!
The website that unleashed Sonseed and “Jesus is My Friend” upon the world has noticed our cover of the song posted on YouTube (see below).
So we thought we’d return a little linkage-love – dougsploitation.blogspot.com is a site that has lots of posts on curious pop-culture stuff, present day and “historical-hysterical” stuff… Check it out!
Here it is! Oddwalk’s recent cover of “Jesus is a Friend of Mine” (or, alternatively, “Jesus is My Friend”) made popular, if one can say that, by Sonseed:
Recorded at the Diocese of Jefferson City, MO Senior High Youth Rally, September 14, 2008 by Marianne Cline – woot! Unfortunately, costumes and outdated eyeglasses and hairstyles (unless you count Orin’s) were not yet ready for this performance…
UPDATE – 9/17, 1:30pm – for what it’s worth, I think Oddwalk can claim the first cover of the song uploaded to YouTube. It is the little victories that count, isn’t it?
