Hiatuses are lamesauce

A crime has been committed everyone, a crime to humanity. This is a serious problem and I'm sad I didn't know about it earlier. Guess I have kind of fallen behind on the times.

I'm so upset and the more I think about it (like thinking about it to write this post) the more upset I get. Can't you see I'm in distress here? Well, maybe you can, but I am talking to no one until I read the comments so how am I supposed to know that while I am writing.

My favorite band is on...the new hip word they use instead of saying they broke up....hiatus.

Seriously, I haven't been this upset since Something Corporate went on hiatus. And how many years have they been on "hiatus." Well, I guess I wasn't really a fan of theirs until after they went on hiatus and Jack's Mannequin is just as good so I'm not really that upset anyway...and it made it so I could meet most of the band members when their new little known bands came to town.

But this time, I really am upset. Now I know I don't talk about music much on this blog. I used to be super into music, but lately I've just been listening to mainly the same bands and I've gotten into really mellow music.

And I just realized I haven't even mentioned who I am talking about. My favorite band is The Hush Sound. I've loved them for a few years. Their music is clean and I love that they have two lead singers. I have seen them perform live before, and they're pretty darn good. I was bummed that I got off work late last time they came to town so I couldn't go. And that could have been the last time they will come to town...ever *tear.

Alright, Alright, I'll stop with the dramatics, ans post some videos instead. These are videos I found on Youtube of my two favorite songs by them. They're both rather slow songs and both sung by Greta, the girl lead singer. Side note: I asked Hal the other day when we went to see Heath Ledger's movie and someone in it was named Greta and I asked him if we could name one of our daughters Greta. He said yes...now I don't know if he was being serious, but I would totally name our kid Greta. That would be awesome.

Back to real story. The first song is called Hurricane from their last album, and the second one is called Lighthouse and I love it for the story it tells and I am obsessed with nautical things, but that's for another post. I couldn't find a very good video for it, so if you want to there is a shaky video posted below.

P.S. Greta has a new side project called Gold Motel, I'm excited to hear their music.

So sorry girl! :( But we have similar taste in music! ;)
And girl, I will try to take pictures of the carnival and if all fails I'll find links so you can see some too.
It's always so crowded and I hate being squeezed like a hot dog all the time so taking a camera is a difficult task...but since I'm working I might be able to take some shots of people and all. haha. We'll see. :)

Have a great day Sam.

I remember when Imogen Heap announced at a concert that she was taking a break...boo. I wanted to say, "But what about the music? I need it."
