Hey guys. I am currently riding in Burnie on the way to our show in Lakeville, Minnesota. Still a good bit of lingering snow on the ground, but luckily the trip has been clear thus far. I had some Raisin Bran for breakfast at our hotel…and it was good.
Oooh here’s something exciting. Philmont is now endorsed by the company Rocktron, who makes a lot of great guitar pedals, effects processors, etc. So we are stoked to start using their gear! This is a great blessing.
Also exciting is the fact that I am going to be heading down to Orlando Florida next month with my girlfriend to A) spend a day at Disney World, and B) attend Copeland’s final two shows in the U.S.! We recently spent a day volunteering at a local waterfowl rescue as part of Disney’s “Give a Day, Get a Day” program, so we each got a free ticket to Disney! It’s a pretty awesome deal. [P.S. we are not getting a hotel room, we are staying with friends…don’t worry]
My younger brother Micah is on a missions trip in Mexico right now with other people from our church, so keep him in your prayers as he reaches out to people down there. Apparently it’s sunny and mid-70s down there – that’s enough to make me jealous!
Several of us now have signed up to be “guides” for the text service ChaCha, which answers your questions for free! You get paid to go online whenever you want, take questions that come in, and respond to them accordingly. If you haven’t texted ChaCha before, try it out next time you are wondering about something (text any question to 242-242). It’s totally free, so don’t worry about fees or anything. Anyway, this will be a great way for us to do something else productive on the road when we are in hotels or at venues with wi-fi.
There is a new Coheed & Cambria album coming in April. So that is cool.
Shutter Island is a CRAZY movie. It blew my mind.
Alright well it’s my turn to drive now. Until next time…stay warm!
