The Youtube Hymn Challenge

Dear Readers,

Unfortunately, we experienced some technical difficulties with the Youtube Hymn Challenge linked through http://www.yearoftheflood.com. Sincere apologies go out to all of those people who had problems uploading their hymns. Below, please find the links to some wonderfully creative hymn compositions written for this contest. Thank you to all who participated!

  1. Excellent. I love the internet. And I love how the singers (in the first link) occasionally hesitate…and pronounce words differently from one another…just like in church.

  2. Hi there,
    I was inspired by “The Year of the Flood” to write my own hymn. It’s a tongue-in-cheek (complete with message) hymn put to original music. It’s very fun. You can find it at http://www.commanderpants.com/2010/03/ode-2-joy-2.html .
    I’d be honored if you could take a look. It’s only about 2 1/2 minutes (the graphics give way to photos when the words start – about 20 seconds in).

    Thanks,

    Commander Pants

  3. Hi,
    Thanks so much for the Tweets. You made my week (not too mention my wife’s). I was wondering if you might allow me to send you a copy of my new novel, Whom God Would Destroy? It’s a black comedy about God returning to Earth to mess with humanity once more. As you might expect (from a black comedy) things don’t go quite as planned. The book also tackles some serious subjects along the way (religion, mental illness, psychiatry, psychiatric medication) while keeping its tongue firmly planted in its cheek.
    Sorry to communicate via this method. It’s all I have. Thanks again for getting me out there, and for writing such thought-provoking stuff.

    PS: Adam One would certainly have revised things a bit, but he’s not nearly as cynical as I am (nor does he claim Pants as a surname).

  4. I’d like to offer my thanks to the Office of Margaret Atwood for having posted this and for writing about beekeepers by way of a jar of gardener honey. Jar can be made available at one of our bee events or delivered by bicycle to a suitable location within the toronto area.
