Carlos Whittaker posted this day before yesterday: Link to How Relevant is Relevant? at Ragamuffin Soul. It was an interesting read followed by an even more interesting comment thread. These two dudes (dude 1) (dude 2) had some comments that both made me think and made me chuckle.
I'm of the opinion that my efforts to be relevant today will be laughed at tomorrow. I've posted a few case in point photos.
Me with a mustache and my bride to be with a mullet. We had no idea that dudes would start shaving off their 'staches. And that the mullet would be called a mullet. The first time I heard "mullet" I was like, "how does that hair-do look like a fish?"
Stryper. These guys were hot when I first got saved but everybody thought they were "of the devil."
Resurrection Band. They actually have some really cool music.
Russ Taff. I actually saw this guy on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (speaking of relevant) before I became a Christain whereing that day-glo blue suit with those medals pinned on his chest and was like, "what the..."
Amy Grant. I still like her music...
DCTalk. I'v never been a fan of rap. Sorry. Relevance has never been my claim to fame (see above photo). I didn't start liking these guys until they released Jesus Freak.
Newsboys. I don't think these guys always looked relevant, but they always sound relevant. One of my wife's favorites (see girl above with mullet).
