Album Notes
A collection of stories from a Master Teller who has worked with teens for almost two decades. These stories are told specifically for teenage boys, ages 13-19. The content is blunt, edgy, to-the-point and of interest to teens. There is no "candy coating" here on this CD. For example, Sean starts off the collection with his own story about a time when he could have "done better" but missed an opportunity as he tells "Drunk Mr. Daniels." The stories are presented in a style that leaves the listener to draw his own conclusions. The CD contains stories from life and legend.

From the Back Cover:
"Did you buy this CD or is someone telling you to listen? Doesn't really matter. You won't find all the answers to life in here and you won't find anyone telling you how to think. Just vanish into your headphones and listen for a while. You will find stories about guys who fail and get back up, about stuff that looks great at first but turns out bad, about anger and hope, about light and shadow. Sound like your life? Yeah, we know. Listen again to the stories you like, listen more to the ones you don't think you "get." Let 'em roll around in your head until they mean something to you. There's no rush, this isn't a test. You might even find out about yourself." Please note this contains mature (not explicit) content that is designed for boys aged 13-19.

From the Content Listing:
On this CD: "Drunk Mr. Daniels:" from my "Burn" presentation. Ever felt that angry? I wish I hadn't. "Calling out a Rising Sun:" a story I wrote based on other myths. Do you see people you care about just give up? "Iron John:" a folk tale. What risks do you take to let out the Man inside? "Peacock and Crane:" an Aesop fable. what counts the most: looks or ability? "Gray's Hat:" about a kid I knew. What's really important to you? "King David:" from the Bible. How much more hope is there for you and I? "Moon and Sun:" Are you in someone's light or in their shadow?

From the Author and Teller:
"I've been telling stories for and with teens for over 18 years. These are some that I get asked to tell when I work with groups of guys. You're going to find true-life stuff in here- like 'Drunk Mr. Daniels' when I didn't do the right thing and 'Gray's Hat' when I did. I don't give morals on this CD- you can figure them out for yourself. If you want to know more about why I tell these stories- go online some time and check us out: www.callingoutarisingsun.com . I know you have lots of CD's you can listen to so thanks for choosing this one."

Liked the stories where the point was a little more obvious
The stories that had a clear, intriguing point, like the Story of David and Uriah or about the boy who held the hat his father gave him close to his heart, were most poignant and made the greatest impact. The story about the rooster was kind of silly, and immature, even for teenage guys. At the end I was asking myself, "what the heck was that about, and I really don't care enough to think about it anymore." I felt the same about the story of the hairy man in the lake. It says at the end of the story, "we'll save the end for another time" but it never finishes, never explained why people where dying when they first went into the forest, and what made the whiny kid want his ball so badly. On a positive note, the story-telling is very good, as long as he doesn't over do it on the fake voices, like the rooster crow which comes off ridiculous and takes away from the story-teller's credibility because it's so silly.

I really respect what you are doing and please continue to do so as both teenage boys and girls need as much discipleship in Christ as we can offer.

This was a wonderful experience .. beautifully written and performed. It brings back the tradition of storytelling and places squarely in our modern times!


Good let's me make up my own mind
I thought this CD rocked! I like the fact that the dude doesn't tell us what to think, but just let's these stories be whatever I want them 2 be. The website that goes with the CD had more stuff on it and that helps to figure it out. I never thought I'd like a CD with storytelling. It was good.

"I can't thank you enough. . ."
"I can't thank you enough for the CD you shared with me in Arizona. It not only speaks to it's audience, it tells me an enormous amount about you, your roots, passions, and mission. "Drunk Mr. Daniels" is a brilliant piece that captures the psyche of young man under duress. Because you begin in such a clear and honest place it truly does lead us to other possibilities. "Grey's Hat" was also such a loving appreciation of the threads that keep us human and how we can honor them in one another. Thank-you. As for King David 'A man of G-d and all that' what a perfect story for teenage boys who, I am sure live in the shadow of David's lust every minute of their lives. Ah, turning old can finally release them to their heart and mind making those primary decisions in their lives, but how important to know that their struggles are as old as the Book. What a prince you are."-Judith Black
