Burlap to Cashmere returns

Behold the return of Burlap to Cashmere

Yeah, I liked ’em way back when.  I’m hoping they’re not more Jebus-y.  I bet they are. We shall see.  I always liked their musicianship, Greek folk influences, and Steven Delopoulos’ lyricism and singing…

I heard about this through a Waterdeep mailing, but stumbled on a free (or as cheap as free) Sixpence None the Richer -EP- as well on

Good choices (that cost me a total of $3… for all of them): Waterdeep‘s Heart Attack Time Machine, The Khrusty Brothersself-titled debut, and Sixpence‘s My Dear Machine -EP-.  Another good choice (that I had via other methods, like Derek Webb‘s The Ringing Bell.

Ah, a philosophical agnostic / practical atheist, listening to Jewish music, blogging about Christian rock… WTF!?

*– Well, I guess it’s barely what’s normally considered “Jewish” music (i.e.- look Oren & Z’ev up on iTunes)

Before I start, I am an atheist, but I’m not anti-Christian or anti-religious people.  I just believe in one less god than they do.  We should all coexist.  With that being said…

Why is this game needed?  Oh, so, as a Christian, you shouldn’t set yourself up to be a hero?  You also shouldn’t play an “evil rock” song on a fake guitar?  You should play sanctified “rock for the rock” on a fake guitar?


The troubling thing… looking at the setlist for the game, they don’t even have the “good” Christian rock on there (outside of potentially the Crucified and dc Talk tracks).  They need some Tourniquet, Believer, Deliverance, Klank, Stavesacre, or, hell… even Stryper or P.O.D..  And the Jars of Clay song is… well, not even one of their dozen popular ones.
