to write LOVE on her arms

a year ago, a guy named jamie wrote a story. a story of love and compassion towards someone that didn't know what love was. it's been a year since the story was written and the story and it's impact has grown to unbelievable heights. the story was of a girl named renee who was battling depression and addiction and also dealt with cutting. (to read the story go to all it took was some shirts and LOVE. i felt for this organization the minute i read the story. they believe in LOVE and that LOVE is the movement. they're on tour and are going around with Anberlin, Bayside, Meg & Dia, and Jonzetta, and all they are doing is showing LOVE. they're not pressuring people, not pushing a product, nor denying anyone. LOVE is what they're doing. GOD is LOVE and they're are showing GOD through their LOVE. a year ago LOVE became the movement and it is the movement.

check them out, read the story, and decide if you want to join in.

at the red light

is the name of my musical outlet... not funny stuff about mexican food making you explode, but real musical outlet. we have a song called "you gotta buy your friends" that sounds kinda like the hives-ish, alternative scratchy sounding and it will be awesome to play that one live. it's all about frats and sororities and buying your friends (clever i know). our next song is called "pop goes the weasle" and it's kinda late 60's beatles. it's all about just getting tired of the same old boring life, and the chorus is a four part harmony on an "ah," so good. and our next song, "yoknapatawpha county" (anyone get the reference), was written on a dreary day. it's very folksie and has a very low, beat down feel to it. jeremiah's grandad calls it our "slave song," and for lack of a better term it's stuck. we have yet to find our "sound," but i think we recently found it... one word... hyphenated twice... are you ready? ELECTRO-ALTERNA-POP! synths and stuff... so good. i'm currently saving up money to get an m-audio midi controller, so we can play live. i'm excited, we're gonna go places!


sammy carmike trio is making it's first live appearence tonight (3/22) at an open mic night!

this blog is coming from the comfortable bed, in my house, in Kennesaw. It's great, I'm on spring break and doing EXACTLY what I want to... nothing! I'm getting a free wireless signal from one of the neighbors, and it's great. I'm watching Scrubs and that is awesome. I downloaded a lot of new music and I'm loving listening to it, Jim Noir, Arctic Monkeys, Bright Eyes (I know, very emotional), Rogue Wave, and Silversun Pickups. Spring break rules!
