Ain't no Copperhead

Ain't No Copperhead

If you've been following all the news lately on the Catching Creation Instagram and Facebook pages you will be excited to know that today is the day.  We are finally done recording "Ain't no Copperhead" hip hop song.  It's all about snake identification or rather the misidentification.  Every year I get countless tags on social media, texts and frantic messages about people finding copperheads.  Nine times out of ten the "copperhead" is one of two harmless snakes; the Dekay's brown snake or the juvenile black racer snake.  Both have patterns and in the dim twilight at a hazy wood line I guess I can understand the confusion. This misidentification happens frequently enough that as a team we decided to make this funny song about it.  I hope you enjoy it and please share it on all social media platforms!  What should we make a song about next?  Leave a comment and let us know!

This song was recorded and mixed by Stephen LaVine, filmed and edited by Stan Lake.   It was performed by Daniel Charles, Chance Feimster, Thomas LaVine, Stephen LaVine, and Stan Lake.  Special thanks to Barry McGee and Deric Cook for dancing their hearts out on a hot summer day for this video!

If you liked this song be sure to check out our other song "Slippy Slimy Salamander" and get your wiggle on as this catchy song lays eggs in your brain.

Thomas LaVine and  Stephen LaVine both have lots of amazing stuff going on with their music careers, please take a second and check out their new albums and go follow them on social media!

Busy and Blessed!

I just wanted to give everyone an update on everything that has been going on lately.  God has been doing great things!  Its been a little over a month in this faith free fall and I can honestly say that God is really providing for us more than ever.  I was able to film a DVD for a great Christian comedian named Renea Henderson at Crossroads Baptist Church and that was a huge blessing for everyone involved.  Be sure to look for her DVD and more information about the Church here:  http://www.crossroadbaptist.org It seems like since I left my job as a video editor that I have been filming and editing videos more than ever now.  I made another simple music video for Christian hip hop artist "Kid Prince" and we got to play around with the green screen and it turned out quite nicely and it is sure to bless and encourage those who watch it.  You can check it out here:  Kid Prince "Amen"  

You can also download the new MixTape from Kid Prince here:  http://noisetrade.com/kidprincetr

I was privileged to visit the Creation Museum a few weeks back and got to film Rick Teepen from "Snakes Alive" and make a DVD to help support his ministry.  You should be able to find them on his website very soon.  If you are in the Cincinnati, Ohio area I definitely recommend you check out the Creation Museum as well as Rick Teepen's ministry.  You can find out more information about Rick here:  http://snakesalive.vpweb.com  

The Lord has been opening quite a few doors and it is exciting to see what has been going on lately.  I have been blessed with quite a few opportunities to speak in schools, full congregations, youth groups and children's church programs lately and I am thanking God for every opportunity to speak His word.  Just last night I was blessed to be able to speak at Gospel Baptist Church in Greensboro NC and will be speaking in Martinsville, VA and Elkin, NC this Sunday and from there I will spend almost an entire week in Sweetwater, TN (near Knoxville) speaking in public schools and churches.  Please be in prayer for me and my family as we continue to walk in faith and obedience.

We are praying for favor and equipment for the video side of Catching Creation as we personally do not own any equipment of our own.  The Lord has allowed me to borrow people and gear over the last few years but we feel that if Catching Creation's video side of the ministry is to move forward in the direction we pray it will then we will need support both financially as well as people willing to donate time to help us in the field.  I have laid all of this before the Lord and have decided not to film any more videos in the field for Catching Creation until we hear clearly from the Lord about what we are to do next.  We do believe that once we raise enough money or are provided with a professional camera/cameras (ie Canon DSLR, Canon XhA1, XF100, Sony EX 1, etc) then we will know it is time to resume production.  I have been striving and working really hard for years on this with no gear of my own and I am truly blessed to have had friends that supported us along the way with their gear but I feel like in order to grab and go and film more often we will need our own equipment.  Please pray with us as we seek the Lord on this.

Thank you so much for your prayers and please continue to share our videos from the youtube channel: http:www.youtube.com/CatchingCreation and feel free to visit the store http://catchingcreation.wordpress.com/support-catching-creation/ if you would like to get a copy of our books or DVDs and if you would like to donate in any way you can send a payment to CatchingCreation@yahoo.com on Paypal.

I am available to come speak at your church, school, youth group and etc so please feel free to shoot me an email at CatchingCreation@yahoo.com and I will get back to you promptly and can tailor fit a live animal presentation to your needs.  I'm very excited about all the Lord is doing and I hope you are as well!
