Brad Dring from Rapture Ruckus to Appear on Today!

The Gong(ed) Show has one of my favorite kiwis (for those of you who don’t know what a kiwi is besides a fruit, it’s a nickname for someone from New Zealand) stopping by on Skype today for a chat at 4:30 pm EST–Brad Dring, lead singer from the rad band Rapture Ruckus!

If you haven’t seen Rapture Ruckus live and in person before, let me state for the record you are really missing out!  They are AWESOME!!  Hopefully you live somewhere near a stop of the Newsboys fall 2013 Restart tour so you can catch them while they are out on the road with the Newsboys, for King & Country, and Moriah Peters in the near future.

This afternoon, Brad will most likely be talking “In Crowd” with Faup and the gang on the show, especially since it is release day for the fabulous In Crowd video!  Of course, I’m not just saying that because I ponied up $$$ to support the funding of this deserving project…but I will say that I am VERY pleased with the end results.  You gotta love any music video that features Soul Glow Activatur from Family Force Five as a school bus driver!

You can check out the In Crowd video below, and check back tomorrow for video of the full Skype session with Brad right here on Spin: the Blog!

FF5’s Zombie hits 1,000,000 YouTube Hits!

So, as of late I’m obsessed with Family Force 5.

My son (in addition to being obsessed with for King & Country) is obsessed with zombies.

surprisingly, we now have a place to come together and spend some quality bonding time indulging in both of our obsessions. The place? YouTube. The video? Family Force 5’s “Zombie”.

Zombie just recently surpassed the 1,000,000 mark for YouTube views, thanks no doubt in large part to me and Alex. If you are one of the few people left on the planet that haven’t seen the video for Zombie, check it out below!


As many of you may have guessed, I currently have an obsession with the group Family Force 5.

It makes no sense to me, other than the fact that their music and music videos are a whole lotta fun.  (Also, their live shows are epic.  If you don’t believe me, go check them out on the Rock & Worship Roadshow when it stops by a town near you this winter/spring.)

I am especially obsessed with the song “Cray Button” featuring Lecrae, which I have previously featured here on the Spin: the Blog during my “YAWN!  This Super Bowl is Boring” video series back in January.

My other FF5 song obsession at the moment is the song “Wobble”.

Now, I personally cannot Wobble, at least not on purpose.  I suppose I’ve been known to inadvertently Wobble a time or two because I’m amusingly lacking in the coordination and grace department; yet, I love this song anyway.   Since it recently passed over a 1,000,000 views on YouTube, I thought I would share it this morning to get the party started right.

While the Harlem Shake may be the dance craze of the moment, just remember that the Wobble came first, which sort of makes it the Granddaddy of the Harlem Shake.



*YAWN* This Superbowl is Boring…

So I’m going to post some of my favorite videos!  First up is Family Force 5 featuring Lecrae–Cray Button.  Monster trucks, mud wrestling-style dancing, and one of my favorite fun lyrics–“I will show you crazy, I’m a maniac”–in one fan powered, over the top video.  Love it!
