You Shoot Me Straight & True

If you know me at all whatsoever you know I love music and it has been a big part of my life forever.  I grew up on all kinds of classic rock goodness (thanks Dad), spent my high school days going to shows every weekend, and even helping a run a music website with my friends. About this time in 2001 is when I started listening to Thrice, and I’ve been a HUGE fan ever since. It’s kind of special following something for so long, and as they change so do you, and each album means something different to you since you are both evolving.

Anyways! The singer of Thrice, Dustin Kensrue, has some solo cds and plays solo shows every so often.  He has a great bluesy raw voice that I love.  Of course any time the band or him play within a few hours of here I snatch up tickets.  This weekend he was playing in San Diego as part of the Where’s The Band tour (alongside singers from bands such and Bayside, The Get Up Kids, Saves the Day).

I wanted to share a few songs from the night, sorry for some of the vids, but I wanted to find some of the actual show we went to.  Here is one of his personal songs “Pistol”, which just so happens to be our wedding song 🙂 Major swoonage

 

I totally dig this cover he did of the Cold War Kids “Hospital Beds” – this song has been stuck in my head for days now, love his version.

 

And one of the more popular Thrice songs, “The Artist in the Ambulance”.

It’s Fall! (ish)

It’s finally sort of Fall.  By sort of I mean, the weather was fall-like last week, and now it’s warmed up again, but still much cooler than it was 2 weeks ago.  Better than nothing I suppose.

I think one of the reasons for my lack of blogging is because summer seriously depresses me, because it’s SO hot for so long.  It makes me grumpy, tired, and just negative all over – and you don’t want to read a bunch of grumpy posts complaining about the weather!  Especially if we aren’t getting out of town/going on many trips.

I’m pretty sure I owe any readers left a few recipes that I’ve meant to post, but just haven’t. Like those awesome gluten-free donuts and chocolate stout cupcakes (which, apparently, I thought I blogged about but I did not. Fail.). And share quite a few other epic recipes that anyone who can bake needs to try asap.

Some other tidbits to update you all on..

  • We’re headed to Michigan for 10 days on Thursday! I’m super excited – all of Chris’ family lives there and we haven’t visited in 2 years! Sad….we didn’t go last year because we got married and went on our honeymoon. Which bring me to…
  • Our anniversary! It’s coming up in the 23rd 🙂  The trip is sort of our celebration I suppose, we don’t have anything else planned than I know of.
  • Here’s some recent phone snapshots of what I’ve been up to. My camera was dead for a few weeks because I lost my charger.

Bakersfield Oktoberfest! First timers. It was pretty legit!
Decorating for Halloween in the house. Speaking of…

I’ve also been shooting zombies.

My favorite band came out with a new album. Love.

And I am going to see them in November 🙂

Made a little deer art for the wall.

A song

A little music sharing for a Monday night.  Love the music/sounds/lyrics, this song is making me smile tonight. Love me some Thrice/Dustin Kensrue!

My heart is filled with songs of forever
The city that endures when all is made new
I know I don’t belong here, I’ll never
Call this place my home, I’m just passing through
