GOOD STUFF! 01/17/2009

LIME OR LEMON HOUSE GETS TO STAY OPEN TILL MAY!

so earlier this week we were told that the lime or lemon house (which emily, liam, migel, iggy and i all live in) would be foreclosed and that we would all have to move out within a couple weeks. but we just found out today that everything is taken care of until may! HOORAY! so now we arent forced into the streets (or new homes away from each other) until right before fathers day goes on tour! ISNT THAT AWESOME! we will probably have a big farewell show to the house before we move at the end of april but i am just so thankful we have more time before being kicked out of our house! HOORAY!

GOOD STUFF! 01/01/2009

it is always so hard for me to narrow things down to "top ___" lists. Everyone i know is doing some sort of "2008 year in review sort of thing" so i feel like doing the same. This year is way different from any other year because it was a good mix of "missionary life" and "normal human being life" so here it is...

-Making new friends! (hamani hill, migel, jenna...)
-Voodoo Donuts / Ending my Two Year Donut Fast (By the way Voodoo Donuts is something i am looking forward too when i go back up to Portland next week)
-Fathers Day is alive and kicking and making amazing music and recording new material and practicing and playing amazing shows!!!
-I have lived with all my best friends (for the most part)!
-Discovering new local bands and discovering old local bands for the first time and re-discovering local bands again! (mainly Ray Reeves, Skinwalkers, Bolt, JJCNV, James Fella, Haunted Cologne...)
-Playing in LA!
-Lots of house shows!
-Becoming good friends with long time friend/acquaintance JASON SYKES!
-3 ART SHOWS!!!???!!!???
-Hi My Name Is Ryan writes and plays and sings real songs now!
-The Children of Hell played again!
-IGGY IS THE GREATEST HUMAN BEING EVER!
-Salena Got Baptized right before i went home!
-I VOTED FOR JESUS CHRIST!
-My friends and family all became better people and i learned to appreciate them all for reals!
-MEMPHIS!
