Random Fandom ; February 23, 2007

I'm so glad that it's finally the weekend! Even though it was only a four day week with Presidents' Day off, it still felt really long. Every minute of every class really seemed to drag out to two minutes. Funny how the 10-minute fire drill today didn't seem to shorten my 2nd period class at all.

So, I'm really bored right now. Thinking about somehow making a music video. I've seen some music videos by some friends, and they were really great. My friend Heather had a life-sized cardboard cutout photo of her older brother, and that was the blue man in the "I'm Blue da ba dee da ba die" song. Then Corrie and Sara did "Breakfast" by the Newsboys—I was in it, and that was embarrassing but hilarious.

So, I would really like to make a video of a Mute Math song...probably Chaos or Break the Same. Oh, never heard of Mute Math? Well, psh. They're my favorite band...I love their sound. Go to their myspace page and listen to some songs—Chaos is my favorite. Mute Math is pretty much the best.

That was a random geek-out of band fandom. Random fandom. Ha.

I'm starting to sound like a lunatic, and this blog post is going nowhere, so...bye bye. :)

Oh wait. If you have ideas for a music video, please tell me! :D

My Thoughts on Valentine's Day ; February 18, 2007

I've had a good week. Wednesday was Valentine's Day. On Tuesday I was a grumpy Scrooge (as my mom put it) about Valentine's Day. Bah humbug.

I just don't like how Valentine's Day is so commercialized, how it requires you to buy candy and cards and all that. It should be a more honest holiday—we should be able to tell people we love them without giving them things. But then, why don't we be honest and tell people we love them every day of the year?

So, I guess the Ghosts of Valentine's Day Past, Present, and Future came to me, and showed me to appreciate the holiday. It's true that the specific day is a good place to begin, to get you to tell your peeps that you love them. Then hopefully you continue it throughout the year—keep caring, keep encouraging, keep laughing together, keep strengthening friendships.

I'm not a Scrooge about it any more. Yes, I did give some cards to my family and friends. :)

Here's a Bible verse, one of the many things that Jesus said about love: "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:34-35

So, what do you think about Valentine's Day? :)

The Last of the Molehicans ; February 11, 2007

So, this is my first blog entry. How exciting. :) I don't have much to say, except what I'm planning for this blog. I don't want it to be a really personal diary-type thing, with a bunch of places and names that people can't relate to. No, I'm planning on having a variety of topics—stuff that might actually be interesting, instead of just dull things about my life.

Of course, many of my entries will be related to Christianity, because that's what's on my mind most of the time. Definitely some music, books, and movies thrown in at times. Maybe even some debatable or controversial subjects. I'll probably ask for your opinion on things, so I'm not the only one spewing out thoughts here.

To start things off, some photos.

This is The Last of the Molehicans. Yes, in my Chemistry class we made moles...if you're dying to know what moles have to do with chemistry, then here's the Wikipedia page. So yeah, I gave mine a headdress and turned it into an Indian. :D

So I'm listening to a new band I recently discovered, called Spur58. They're a Christian rock band. I bought their CD today, and it's really good! My favorite songs are "Sleepwalkers," "Always Been There," "Ready to Love," "Kyle's Lament," "Start Over," and...well, psh, all of the songs are good. xD Be sure to check out Spur58's website and listen to them!
