Low Is to Mormons As Over the Rhine Is to Christians
(I know, Mormons think they are Christians—that’s another subject altogether …)
Minnesota Stories is an interesting videoblog that I just discovered this week because it’s nominated in the 2005 Weblog Awards. (What?! I wasn’t nominated?!) Anyway, Minnesota Stories appears to include regular vlogs from multiple contributors, which I think is a great idea. The latest post is a behind-the-scenes video of the band Low practicing John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas (War Is Over)” with a backing “choir.” Low is led by the husband-wife duo of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, who are Mormons. (In case you’re not familiar: Over the Rhine is led by the husband-wife duo of Linford Detweiler and Karin Berquist, who are Christians.) Anyway, check out Minnesota Stories. Good stuff.
