Here is a simple tutorial:
This tutorial uses iTunes.
You will first need to prepare you Album Art. Youc an use any photo editing software...I recommend some form of Photoshop. Make sure your dimensions are 300x300 pixels at 72 dpi. iTunes loves this setting. Save your file as a jpg and remember where you saved it.
1) In iTunes, right click on the file you would like to add "Album Art" to.
2) An info window will pop-up. Choose the "Artwork" tab.
3) Choose "Add," navigate to where you saved your Album Art jpg and select it. Choose "Open."
5) Now all you have to do is upload your file to your server. Now everytime someone gets your podcast and plays it in iTunes or on their iPod...they will see your album art. You will have to do this for each individual podcast session.
Another quck tip is that you can drag your art to that window if you want.

I noticed that all 5 best male actor nominees in a TV drama were from shows I watched...I felt so good...then they started naming the movie categories and realized...I knew nothing...except for Walk the Line...it won best Musical/Comedy (Why are they in the same category?) and best actor and actress in the same crazy category.
Onto why i named this post "creative speeches"... Hugh Laurey from "House" gave a great speech. He said he had so many people to thank (172 to be exact) that he wrote them all down on seperate pieces of paper and put them in his pocket. He then told us he would pick 3 names randomly to thank...He gave his pocket a little shake to mix it up and pulled the first name. It was very witty because the first name was some minimal role and the next the same and the last was his agent. Very funny. THEN...Steve Carrel (Spelling?) from The Office (Fav show)...said he did not write a speech because he did not think he would win but his wife did and handed it to him as he was walking up to the stage. The speech was littered with thanks to his wife. Very funny also.
I love it when talented people share their gifts. It also makes the award show much more bearable.

One particular lyric that is found in the bridge of the song:
Everything I want
everything I hope in
Everything my heart cries out for
Of course this is a song to Jesus and you are saying this to Him...that He is everything I want, hope in and cries out for but it poses a question...IS HE? The lyrics are powerful.
If you are looking for a great new worship cd...I recommend this. You can only buy it here (at least that I know).
P.S. If you are a worship leader, you will love that they post all the chords to their songs for free.

"Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink — even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk — it's all free! Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen, and I will tell you where to get food that is good for the soul!
"Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen, for the life of your soul is at stake. I am ready to make an everlasting covenant with you. I will give you all the mercies and unfailing love that I promised to David.
