7. The $7 ApologetiX CD Sale Strikes Back

Thanks to all of you who came to see us in Atlanta (Norcross) this past Saturday. It was great to see you old friends (including our pal Jimmy "the Walking Miracle" Adamson, who first saw us back in 1992 at the Paradise Club!) and to make new ones.

I was rather amazed to discover from our gracious host, John Leonard, that two notable Atlanta-area Christians, comedian Jeff Foxworthy and Atlanta Braves Cy Young Award-winning pitcher John Smoltz actually own our CDs (and even more amazingly, they like them, according to John), although neither was in attendance. I'd imagine they have rather full schedules, although at a concert in Atlanta last year, I met another former Atlanta Braves Cy Young Award-winning pitcher, Steve Bedrosian, when he showed up in the autograph line with one of his kids. As a former baseball-card collector and a lifelong fan, I think that's pretty cool.

Speaking of celebrities, we had a special guest on keyboards Saturday, Pastor Steve Carroll, who formerly played in concert and/or studio with such notable artists as Three Dog Night, the Guess Who, Bob Dylan and even Elvis. Steve makes an appearance on keyboards on our upcoming "Adam Up" CD, reprising one of the parts he once played in the studio for one of those artists. Although we'd never rehearsed with Steve before Saturday, Steve did an awesome job, sitting in on four songs, including two

I did the concert with an extreme ear infection and sore jaw resulting from a swollen pimple in my ear. It was very painful (earache) and distracting (no hearing in one ear), but I'm about 99 percent healed now. This is the third year in a row I've gotten a pimple in my ear (it's happened in each ear, although never simultaneously), and every time there have been concerts to do. I've learned that God will always give me enough grace so the show can go on. Saturday was no exception. God is good.

Karl's wife Debbie is still recovering from her surgery at home. Please pray for her, because the pain is still pretty intense, even with the various medications they've given her, although she is maintaining her sense of humor.

5. "ADAM UP," THE NEW APOLOGETIX CD: CLUES #13, 14 and 15

Our latest CD, "Adam Up," is scheduled for release in late November. "Adam Up" features 22 Biblical parodies of both classic and modern rock songs.

We're continuing our tradition of giving clues about the songs on the upcoming CD.

I'll include the three latest clues here:

Clue #13
We're in a Parody Band We knew it would take some kind of wonderful new ApologetiX theme song to replace "Play That Funny Music" -- and this is it. This spoof describes the ups and downs of being in Christian music's parody band, with a spotlight shinin' on the individual members of ApologetiX and our van, including a few humorous comments regarding the bad time we had this past summer trying to get it closer to home.

Clue #14
The Word A senior high student explains that if you really want to stand out in today's schools, there's only one Word you need to know. The singer himself is frank and valiant although his words are barely glib. The original song we spoofed here was already an oldie by the time it hit #1 on Billboard's charts.

Clue #15
Wake Up Talitha Cumi Jesus resurrects the synagogue ruler Jairus' daughter in Mark chapter five, uttering the Aramaic words "Talitha Cumi," which means, "Little girl, I say to you get up!" This song was the final hit for Simon & Garfunkel. How's that for a clue? Now all you have to do is dream up the original title. Here's another clue: This song is directly related to "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses.

There's even a special webpage for you that includes the clues we've given thus far, the cover artwork, and more. Here's the link, especially for you:

7. THE $7 APOLOGETIX CD SALE STRIKES BACK

There's never been a better time or easier way to complete your collection of ApologetiX CDs ... at least until "Adam Up" comes out. We have a limited supply of CDs with cracked cases that we are selling at a greatly reduced rate, and many of you have already taken advantage of this sale, which we have been running from time to time this year.

All seven of our titles are available. All of the CDs and booklets are in perfect shape. The cases are in various degrees of disrepair, some are in near-perfect shape while some don't even have cases, but all of them have the CD, the booklet and the tray card, so all you need is a CD case in good condition. I will autograph all of the CDs to help make up for the broken cases.

For a limited time only, we are making them available to our e-mail subscribers for $7 each.

We are also putting our remastered "Have Yourself a Parody Little Christmas" six-song CDs on sale for a limited time for $7 each. The CD includes the following songs:

1. "Micah No. 5" -
Parody of "Mambo No. 5" by Lou Bega
2. "Late December 5 or 6 B.C. (Oh Holy Night)" -
Parody of "December 1963 (Oh What a Night)" by the Four Seasons
3. "Santa Claus" (It's not what you think, though) -
Parody of "Panama" by Van Halen
4. "Hotel Can't Afford Ya" (Newly recorded version) -
Parody of "Hotel California" by the Eagles
5. "Manger" (same version as "Keep the Change") -
Parody of "Angel" by Shaggy with Rayvon
6. "Christmasnite" (same version as "Keep the Change") -
Parody of "Kryptonite" by Three Doors Down
