What is love?

Love is a willingness to lose anything for someone who means everything while expecting nothing.

That is the love that scores the greatest dramas and the mightiest epics. We sing songs of that love and write poems about that love. Every time that someone dies for that kind of love, a little bit of evil dies too. That is how Christ loves us. That is how we should love each other.



I have a very eclectic taste in music. One thing that helps me to expand my musical palette is what I call “chaining.” Chaining is easy. Go to YouTube and find a video of an artist you like. Play it and look at the recommendations on the right side for the screen. Pick one totally on the basis of your whims. Maybe a video is from a different artist performing the same song. It could be another song from the same artist. You might just find something cool looking in the thumbnail. Whatever it is, just go for it.

This Is how I came across The Yoshida Brothers, Buckethead, Epica, Ben Harper, and a dozen more. It’s a great way to spend a rainy day and you get to expand your musical horizons while surfing.

Give it a try and post back here with something that you discovered and a rundown of how you got there. It’s like six degrees of Kevin Bacon without the bacon.
