Mend Mark
The mend mark is a distinctive wristband designed with the purpose of resembling one of the five scars of Jesus. The band features circular disks that are positioned at each side of the wrist. The intent of these is to simulate one of the holes that was instrumental in killing a King. The purpose of bearing this symbol is to emphasize the importance of His sacrifice and prompt us to never forget the role that it continuously plays in our lives. Have you been marked?

Hearts In Stereo
Besides a great icon in the two hearts, this Canadian quintet cranks out some melodic pop punk with a good penchant for a vocal hook. They pull off a real funny parody of Justin Bieber’s “Somebody to Love” in a video on their MySpace.

News From Verona
Gripping vocals, shredding lyrics, and a shear level of optimism is what defines News from Verona. News From Verona is able to combine the smarts of Paramore with the boldness of The Classic Crime all while crafting a tightly produced, hook-laden rock album (All I Know Is I Know Nothing) appealing to a multi-cultured demographic.

Look for their big tour with ManicDrive in January and February.

“Really catchy hooks that are easy to begin singing along to. Nice piano accompaniment with the smooth vocals.”
HM Magazine

“Forgiven”  by Eric Samuel Timm  XLVII-V-XVII “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

The word “Forgiven” really cuts to my heart strings. What I love about forgiveness is that is connects the common threads of humanity. What I mean by that is our pains and pasts are very much alike, the details is what makes them unique to us. I wanted to paint a piece that captures this commonality we all share and the solution I pray we would all find. I wanted to connect us together, but offering room for each of us to add our story.

“After The Clouds, The Sun” is the wintery, swirling debut EP from Ashlynn, a 4-piece indie band based out of Dallas, Texas. Their sound seems to be the musical embodiment of a baby that would be conceived from the likes of Thrice, As Cities Burn, and Lydia. Unique instrumental and vocal arrangements mixed with the conceptual lyrical journey of discontentment to understanding makes “After The Clouds, The Sun” worth a listen, given you are a citizen of good taste.

HT 7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair
Human Touch makes a complete line of massage chairs (you know, those things you plunk down on for long periods of time at Brookstone shops in the mall until someone stares holes into you) and this one is at the top. With a user-friendly remote control, it’s easy to explore and learn what the different programming options are. This one is billed as a “zero gravity,” because it reclines almost into a full horizontal posture. The handy remote allows you to add heat and experiment with rapid or slow percussion, kneading and compression. A cool Acupoint® Detection system pinpoints trigger points to key in on during the massage. At times a program will stall, as if the unit is over-worked. Nevertheless, this chair has been cherished and appreciated during our deadline this issue. [humantouch.com]

Robin Hood DVD

Robin Hood
Epic, historical (though the accuracy could be questioned) and highly entertaining, this 2-Disc Unrated Director’s Cut is a pleasure to watch. Then, with the directional oversight of Ridley Scott, this should come as no surprise. Russell Crowe was superbly cast for this medieval tale put to film. They managed to balance equal parts battle action with human drama (redemption, betrayal and corruption). The extra bonus disc is loaded with fun deleted scenes and entertaining documentaries on bringing this legend to life.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
