Church song leaders, please take note: There's a song that sounds very nice in rounds: "Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God." The title comes from the first verse. The chorus makes a lovely backdrop with "Hallelujah" draped across some lovely notes.

BUT don't start the round until after the end of the second verse: "And his righteousness."

If you start it after the first verse, there's a good chance that your effort will melt. Run a test round. You'll see.

Speaking from recent experience here.

Doubt me at your peril, Ya Song-Leadin' Goof.

Know what I mean about that scene?

Ever watch a movie and notice a scene comprised entirely of reaction shots? One that makes you say of the two actors, "They weren't even there as the same time!"

I've been saying that often lately. One film notable for this: The Natural.

Ethan beat me to the punch the other day. We were watching The Return of the King. It was a scene between Smeagol and Gollum.
Ethan, Ya Goof.

If you don't get his joke, you'll just have to watch all three "Lord of the Rings" movies. Pay attention.
