Third Day, Hugh Hewitt and other casualties of TSK namedropping

I hardly ever name drop. My wife says otherwise but often i just happen to know people in certain conversations, or i want to give a link to someone with a little personal information. OK . .. sometimes I name drop.

Like right now.

tallskinnykiwiMark Lee of Third Day (well-known rock band in USA) used the phrase the “wonderful Tall Skinny Kiwi blog” yesterday when he made me BLOG OF THE DAY on his site called This Guy Falls Down. He said he discovered TSK through the recommendation of Hugh Hewitt . . . ah hum . . HUGH HEWITT . . [did you hear that?] and up to this point I am the only God-blogger he reads. Which is interesting, because I think Third Day is the only Christian band I have listened to this year, apart from a Rich Mullins experience one Sunday morning. Now if Mark can convince the whole band to read my blog exclusively, then a TSK t-shirt would be forthcoming.

Anyway, I was thinking about a byline for my new monthly blog banner . . like “Tallskinnykiwi . . . the ONLY God-blog for Third Day” or “Tallskinnykiwi . . .as recommended by Hugh Hewitt” but in the end I decided not to. I am NOT a name dropper!

  • My oldest son think’s your blog is weird (except for the technology bits!) but perhaps he will have to review his opinion since Third Day (who he loves) likes you.

  • andrew says:

    your son is correct!

  • I’ve been reading you for about two weeks now and had no idea you were emergent. Hmm. You think you know someone until…
    Anyway, I enjoy your blog too, so Mr, Hewitt must be right.

  • andrew jones says:

    emergent . . . hmmm . . what i often tell people is . . .i dont think that means what you think it means . . .

  • brad says:

    me? i’m a total cultural ignoramus, as i don’t know who Hugh Hewitt is. does that make me an anti-name-dropper? do i win points, or a prize? i’d like one of them t-s-k t’s when they become available. size L please.
    oh, yeah, and i finally linked to tsk on my new blog! (sorry for the delay on that …) guess that qualifies as name dropping. cancels me outta the anti for the prize. oh well. it’s just better this way. no t’s.

  • zach says:

    i would shy away from the hugh hewitt endorsement. the last prominent endorsement from Hugh didn’t work out so well…..ask the Romney Campaign about that.

  • zach says:

    and maybe just like third day, Chevorlet can be your official blog automobile manufacturer.

  • Mike says:

    totally unrelated. But how is the weather?

  • andrew says:

    weather is great. thanks. wind died down and we had lovely snow today – white winter wonderland without the drama. thanks.

  • Matt Scott says:

    Mark goes to my church… maybe now I’ll have a conversation piece to talk to him about instead of “Um… Hi” “Well… bye”

  • St should know I am Third Day’s pastor..and just about everyone related to Third Day is a fan of yours..
    BTW, i meant I am pastor of the church called “Third Day” (which has benefits like…the radio station gave us free ticked to the “real” Third Day concert…once someone showed up for a gathering expecting the band to be there..
    Anyway,keep up the great blog, as Third Day in Fresno, California, love you, too. Drop our name anytime. We drop yours quite a bit
    Third Day

  • I think you should do the T-shirt anyway andrew!! I gotta show you what i’m doing for D’s 40th!
    ps… i love you more than your blog!
