I'm about 14.



Last night I had a major blast from the past which involved me downloading a LaRue song. Sometimes I get sad because I think there really aren't a lot of people that appreciate the same nostalgic things that I do. And that's probably because I wasn't exactly the typical teenager. I was a church kid. I went to a million concerts. I loved local bands. I knew way too much about lame record labels.

Well, last night Ray and I reminisced for a couple hours. It was good. A few things we discussed: unforsaken, dunamis struggle, the old dream center with those black lights and splatter walls, the new dream center in a cool place but with that dumb tiki hut, shiny shirts (Joey Knapp...), LaRue, alien youth, joy electric, salt, canadian bacon, luc houle, pedro the lion + whiskey at cornerstone, people who hate hymns then suddenly like them, yellow cheese van, murray hill theatre, priests that smoke, Daria... not Dora, KJ-52, relient k, bleach (remember that time I went in their van?), holland the band, holland being sued and changing their name to the lonely hearts, tooth & nail, skanking , ska... and I can't remember much more.

Whew... that list probably doesn't make sense to about 98% of the population. And I'm sorry I wrote a blog you probably don't care about... but it just makes me so uncontrollably happy!

That picture may have been taken in 2003. I can't even remember.

And when Unforsaken was "that band with the luigi guy" who was a band with a van with writing on the inside?

and when we would request swing music at the Dream Center?

and when we tried 4+ time unsuccessfully to see Relient K... our only loves

and when we finally saw them. On tour with NEWSONG!

and when Keith would stand at the front of a stage by himself and head bang?

and when Luna Halo came and it was awesome?

I dont regret being the non-typical kid.
