Just wanted to say that tonight at The Door in Dallas was incredible. You guys definitely rocked. As well as the other bands... great lineup. Thanks for doing (*Fin) at the end... one of my favorite songs.

It would be sweet to meet up with you sometime if you were ever interested. My real home is Bremerton, WA... right across the water from Seattle however right now I am going to school in Longview, TX. Next year I will be switching from a computer major and going into Audio Production and Live sound.

I will do some blogging over at tomorrow about the concert if you are interested in reading.

Well enough talking... time for bed. It was a 2 hour drive back to Longview.

Thanks again guys... incredible night!

Usually I'm tremendously stingy with my ears. I just went on a road trip, so the songs that have been in my ears are from my whole collection....more importantly, I had a bunch of friends make me mix cds of stuff they wanted to share with me, the rules being that

1. I couldn't listen to them until I took off on the specified trip


2. I couldn't hit the "next" button. Ever.

Some had track listings, some didn't; I'm not sure what they were full of yet because I just got home & haven't had time to investigate.

In any case I share this otherwise purposeless post because I recommend everyone else to do the same. Very rarely do your friends get the chance to sit you down with 17 of their favorite songs.

Thanks for sharing, everyone.

Stephen, I'll see you in St. Pete. I'm bringing my dad. You guys are one of the handful of bands he & I can agree on. Brand New is the only other one that comes to mind.

"you could be happy"....
That is one of the most played songs on my iTunes. I don't know why I love it so much's just gets me. I love it.

My playlists never really consist of ten songs from separate artists...I usually get into one band for a week or two, or a day or two...and overplay them until I can't listen to them for at least a month. haha. Okay, not that bad, but I tend to do something like that.

Currently music infatuation though would be UNDEROATH. I've been in love with them this whole week. It was Angels and Airwaves before them, and before A&A it was MewithoutYOU....who I got to see live not to long ago, and they are ridiculously awesome! Augustana has been another favorite recently too.

long comment, I know.
I love music so much though.
