Music

ahhh, Music... a very debatable subject for all, as everyone has different opinions, likes, preferences, etc.

take Millard and me for example... we be great friends, but we like different type of music.

I like some, if not most, skillet songs, a few by kutless, Attaboy (saw them in concert last night.) and other bands like them... lol too many to remember hehe.

Millard... to tell you the truth, i have no idea what his fav bands are :O i know David Crowder is one.. .and i cannot say i like them much lol.
whatever millard likes, i don't, and tis rare when we find a song we both like... :D

there be other people i know that have VERY similar tastes in music that i do... and that is great :D

what be your guys fav bands?

so much to post about... O.o

last night, Amos, the lead singer of Attaboy spoke to us about what Christianity is. and he made some good points!
the definition that an actual dictionary gives is "One who is a follower, or imitator of Jesus Christ."

i think it is pretty spot on.

but Amos had something to say about that...

"are we followers of Jesus? or followers of other Christians? do we imitate what they do? that would make us Christianians. in order to imitate Christ, we must read what he did, what he said. and then we can know how to imitate him."

awesome :D so awesome, tis why i be blogging about it lol

think he be right in saying that?

i brought starlighter to the concert... when i got there, all my friends were like, "Dude, you brought a book to a concert??"

yeah i did :P and it paid off.

we were in the gym of a high school, there were no chairs, so we had to sit on the floor. Red Umbrella just finished their songs, and i grabbed my book to read while everyone went out to halls and such to play some game and talk.

i was reading in front of the stage during a sort of intermission thing, and i look up as some of the band members from Attaboy pass by to go on stage and set up. the lead singer, Amos, glanced down at me, saw that i was reading a book, and instantly stopped to talk to me.

he asked me what book it was, who wrote it, what Genre it was in, how long it was and how far in it i was...
turns out he loves to read as well, and he said he was going to check it out later :D
after a minute, he asked me my name and we shook hands.

so, next time you go to a Attaboy concert, bring a book xD lol
but don't read it while they are playing :P lol

OH! yall will not believe this but...
Red umbrella sang about apple pie!
APPLE PIE! XD i was like, shocked :D
*ahem*

after Attaboy played their last song (or so they said) the crowd, a bunch of teenagers, chanted "Dangerous! Dangerous! Dangerous!"
so they played Dangerous... and boy, am i glad they did :D HUZZAH

i love concerts... i got right up next to the stage once, and man, it was LOUD. not too loud though, i could handle it (for a while)
don;t yall love the thumping in your chest from the drums? gosh... :D it was great.

for one who's writing is inspired by music, i must say... concerts rock ;)

after everything was over, the bands went in the halls and got wacky pictures and signed autographs. hehe... i had a crazy idea then, what if i got Amus to sign the back cover of my book?

i asked my friends and they were all like, "Go for it! I will laugh myself to sleep if you do!"
yeah
so i did, when i asked Amos to, he said, "Dude, i would be honored!" and he did :D

now on the back, it has a "Rock on, Amos" on it... :D:D hehe


well, i am going to stop there... what do yall think?

Always Hope!

Laughed all the way through this!

I know Millard likes Matt Mayher (or however you spell it).

I think I'm right in between you and Millard. I like how rock sounds, but most rock artists are not worshipful to me. For example, Skillet's song "Monster" never mentions anything uplifting about how Christ saves us from ourselves. But, like you, I love the way a drum beats through your body.

That is so neat how that guy started talking to you! Books rule. lol

APPLE PIE?! No way! That is just too cool.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun.

Awesome post! Wow! That concert sounds awesome. It's so cool that Amos stopped and talked to you! I love to read, so next time I go to a concert...hmm...XD

As for my favorite bands, I have really eclectic taste in music. I love Celtic music, but my favorite bands are Linkin Park, Relient K, and Evanescence. But I like a lot (including most Skillet songs!).

I love your blog!

Heh,

ST: I think perhaps I have mis portrayed myself. I thoroughly enjoy a "grooving" beat ;) The jamming guitars, and the thudding drums and plucking base! Sadly, I don't think that it is good for me to listen to much of it, far to hard to really listen to worship songs then. For me personally. So hhehe, you may fall in the middle :P But I doubt I am the far edge. Have you listened to any David Crowder Band* Stuff? ;) Not exactly instrumental :P Neither is third day. But I doubt I have mentioned it.
