saw the last OC supertones show here in washington state.

i've realized a)i am getting too old/out of shape to dance like i used to, b)ska (in the christian sense) is dying.

How many of you all.. [06 Nov 2004|03:22am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

actually consider yourself a (christian) rudie?

I consider myself one, but I've also been influenced by punk, hxc, and reggae alot. So, maybe not exactly one.

Hey kids- just an idea-

post shows you wanna go to/are going to, ska or not- so by the teeny tiny chance that another skaforchrist kid is there, then you can all be like, "COOL! ANOTHER KID TO BE ALL HAPPY ABOUT JESUS AND SKA WITH!" *mad skanking* (note: not saying that you should only be happy about God and ska round other kids, cus that's not how it should work, and besides, how can you not be happy thinking about ska or God?) either way, it is super nifty to be able to have people to be all (here's the word i love) zealous with.

To start it off, im from OC and much to my dismay im not going to the Ska is Dead tour, but if any of y'all are melee fans and are headed to chain to see them, then niftyness- we can skank out to lucky boys confusion (be you a fan of them or nay)

Once again, just a thought

Happy skanking and God bless you all!

heyy. i just added this community to my friends...i hope its okay? i dont really join communities so i apologize for any mistakes that i make. =]. my name is Krista, im from Western New York. my top 3 ska bands would have to be the Planet Smashers, Insult to Tradition, Less Than Jake, and Rx Bandits, ... and Catch 22 lol. . i have some other ones, but those are the first that come to mind. my favorite ska songs would probably be... hard to impress - planet smashers, analog boy- rx bandits, sure shot - supertones, monster on maple street - insult to tradition. i have alot of favorite bible verses ... like 1 Timothy 4:7-8. Train yourself to be Godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both present life and life to come.  it means alot to me becuase im on many sports .... and i think i need to remember that at times. well thats about all i guess...talk to you later.

story time, kids! gather 'round!

once upon a time...

i was hanging out with my good friends harrison and chip, and they asked what ska was (being the deprived souls they are). so i described it to them, and told them about the different waves 'n' such. afterwards, harrison asked me "do the 2nd wave ska fans think 3rd wave fans are posers?"
me: "yes"

the end!

Hey there I am Kristine and I'm from Bremerton Washington. I loved FIF when they were together, I got to go to like 4 concerts I think of theirs. I like the Supertones and um.. I know there are others, I can't think of them now. I'll post more when I think of it!

Yay i've been looking for this place for a long time! [09 Jul 2004|10:50am]

[ mood | happy ]


I've been looking for fellow chirstian rudies but for some reason took a while before stumbling in here. *yay for being here at last*

My name is Liz~ im 16 from southern Californa.

Fav ska bands- Naturally Fif *im sad... i didnt know about them til just before the end is here so i never got to see them live. Still their music is great and makes me happy so thats what matters!*
Also- Runforyerlife- Ah i love her voice so much! If you haven't heard of them, then lol you should listen. Good music Good.
A local fav for last would be Suburban Legends. If you've heard 'em you know why- theyre jsut addicting lol.
*also i loooooove RxB* *love love love love*
POOP! Every time i try to finish- i think of lots of other bands. Sometimes i wonder if it's wrong to listen to secular music even if the lyrics are clean.
You guys prolly wonder about that too. I figure though that God enjoys our enjoyment and he made music and gave us ears for a reason. As long as the music isnt not (hahah double negatives) glorifying God, then i think it's okay.
*reel Big fish, Save ferris, Less Than Jake, Oc Supertones... ah so many more good bands!*

Fav ska songs- AGH too many!!! I'll just pick my favs from each of my fav artists *still hard* Fif- Far Far Away, Dandilions, and Every New Day. Runforyerlife- Te Vi, RxB- Pal Treaux, sell yourself beautiful, secret agent man, infection, nothing sacred (the list goes on), Jeffrie's Fan Club- Milk, SL- Bright spring morning, You, (another band i could go on forever about) gha lol so much for thee.

Verse... so many so many- Ever read Amos:5? It just hit me about justice recently. Goodstuff. I know it's pretty common but i always remember it cus 23's my fav. number (whatever keeps it in your heart, right?) psalm 23 is prolly what gets me through a lot of junk. (that makes it my fav. verse)

Anyone read the Screwtape letters? I really really want to *recently had a rocky section in my walk with God and amd trying to regrow* *feeling much better now* Other suggestions for books? I'm currently on the Purpose driven life and Authentic beauty.

Happy Trails to you,
Friends in Christ and the way of the Ska!

(x-posted in skaforchrist, christcore, & morethanable)


I'm looking for a particular worship song I'd like to request the chapel band to play because I think they need a new variety, and I enjoy many of the songs we sing at FCC (they don't sing this one) or that I heard at Crosswinds on the houseboating trip (this is where I first heard the song). They also played this song at Dave's church once. Anyway, so I have a book of songs from the houseboating trip and I'm looking for one called "Hold Me Where I Stand". I cannot find tabs for it on the internet. Lyrics aren't so bad, I have those, but I need guitar/bass tabs. Mostly. If you can find drums that would be awesome.

I'd like to know the artist of the song, at least, or if anyone can find the tabs to this song. It's one of my most favorite worship songs, but many churches don't know about it! It's such an awesome song! PLEASE HELP. Thank you.

lyrics, if you want to know what the song is likeCollapse )

the hand of the Lord was upon me, and he brought me out by the spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of the valley; and it was full of bones. he caused me to pass among them, and behold, round about there were very many on the surface, and lo, they were very dry. he said to me, "son of man, can these bones live?" and i answered, "oh Lord God, you know." again he said to me, "prophesy over these bones and say to them, 'o dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.' "thus says the Lord God to these bones, 'behold, i will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. i will put sinews on you, make the flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may com alive; and you will know that i am the Lord." so i prophesied as i was commanded; and as i prophesied there was a noise, and behold a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. and i looked and behold, sinews were on them, and flesh grew, and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them. then he said to me, "prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath 'thus says the Lord God, "come from the four winds, o breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may come to life."'" so i prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army.

Sometime I feel like a 4th wave of ska has begun. Some of the new "ska" doesn't use the same fundementals as 3rd wave ska. It's more like alt rock with trumpets. Like some of FIF last stuff wasn't technically ska. I like to get some feed back on this see what the rest of you think.

MissionsCollapse )

so if you dont want to read that letter i typed up... heres the lowdown: God has led me to give my life to him through Missions. i've felt strongly about this calling for about 2 years now, and I'm finally making my way onto the field. i don't really expect anyone to donate to me, but i do ask that you would shoot up a prayer for me. i have a lot of money to raise, and satan is hitting hard with doubts. i know that God will put me there if i am meant to be there.. but support would be appreciated. if you randomly feel lead to donate... email me with your address, and i will send you more info on how to mail in the money so it goes directly to the company to prove that i'm not some 12 year old who is going to have a $3000 shopping spree c/o livejournal friends. heh.

also, my email for paypal accounts is "onegirlarmywins@yahoo.com" if you want to donate even a few bucks to that. all of the money recieved there will go to my mission fund, and if i receive over the amount, it will go to mission outreaches.

thank you all for even listening to me<3
