Friday Song Of The Day – Jesus Is A Friend Of Mine

For this Friday Song of the Day I am going to get a little religious… and somewhat comical. This is Jesus Is My Friend by the band, Sonseed. The band was formed in the late 1970’s at the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Brooklyn, NY. The band was (for obvious reasons) fairly obscure until a recent post on the Dougsploitation blog and corresponding YouTube post made this song an instant viral hit. A site called Vinyl Rehab apparently has the album for sale for $5.00. There isn’t any online ordering so you’ll have to call them or email them to see if they have it in stock (good luck). Or you can download the full album in MP3 from Cabel’s Blog LOL, though I’m not sure how legal that is. Here are the lyrics so you can sing along as you watch the video (below).

Jesus is a friend of mine,
(echo) Jesus is my friend,
Jesus is a friend of mine,
(echo) I have a friend in Jesus,
Jesus is a friend of mine
(echo) Jesus is my friend,
Jesus is a friend of mine

He taught me how to live my life as it should be
He taught me how to turn my cheek when people laugh at me
I’ve had friends before and I can tell you that
He’s one who will never leave you flat


He taught me how to pray and how to save my soul
He taught me how to praise my God and still play rock and roll
The music may sound different but the message is the same
It’s just an instrument to praise His name



Jesus is a friend of mine,
Jesus is a friend of mine

Once I tried to run; I tried to run and hide
But Jesus came and found me and He touched me down inside
He is like a mounty; He always gets His man
And He’ll zap you any way He can … ZAP!


He loves me when I’m right; He loves me when I’m wrong
He loves me when I waste my time by writing silly songs
He loves me when I’m quiet and I have nothing to say
He’ll love me when I’m perfect if I ever get that way

Diversity Training!

I just received an email from my work that stated something similar to the following:

Dear Jonathan Franzone,

This e-mail will provide you with information on how to participate in Online Diversity Training. Every employee of XYZ Corp. is being asked to complete this online training program.

To participate in this program, you will need…

The funny thing is this is actually a reminder notice. I sort of filed and forgot the first one they sent to me. Anyway, the only reason I decided to blog about it was that hilarious episode of The Office where the home office visits for Diversity Training. Here is short clip from that episode.

Six Million Dollar Sasquatch

This is just plain ole awesome crap T.V. at it’s finest hour. The six million dollar man faces off with the six million dollar sasquatch (bigfoot). Why the heck would anyone build a bionic bigfoot, anyway? I don’t know, but this clip sure is hilarious. All you need for a great action shot is a) slow motion b) a few sound effects and c) bongos playing in the background.
