Tomorrow kicks off one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving so much, not JUST BECAUSE of the food (though that definitely helps), but because it's such a great reminder of the way we should be all the time... thankful for what we have, what we've had, what we will have. We should have grateful spirits no matter the situation, there's always something to praise God for! I know that for a lot of people, this year has been rough, the economy has not been our friend, etc... but in all things give Him praise.
I pray that as you sit and enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner with your family and friends tomorrow, you hold on to that spirit of gratefulness... you express your thanks to your family, your friends, your co-workers, those that have given of themselves to make this world what it is, but also to God... for He is the one who has blessed us continually in all things.
I know that there are people who do not have the opportunity to spend this precious holiday with their family or friends. Please know that there are places putting on free Thanksgiving dinners for those in need of food (or just in need of fellowship). We have just a few listed on our Bulletin Board...

I pray you have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving holiday no matter what you're thankful for this year!
Keep rockin' for Christ!

The other night I was in the middle of the All Request Show when Joel the Intern mentioned that The Almost updated on their twitter that they were going to be in Dallas for a in-store acoustic performance at Best Buy. I made plans the next day to attend and was one of 60 people to catch the acoustic performance before they played at the House of Blues in Dallas.
The Almost performed songs off of their sophomore album entitled Monster Monster. One of which was the single Hands which we play here on Power FM. I caught some video of it for you to watch and see. The show itself was a very cool opportunity to hang with the band and watch while they perform songs acoustic. From the video you can see that I was very close to the front. You can see more pics here.

Following up on Drue's last blog, this past Friday was CRAZY for me... we had three different bands in the studio within a three-hour span! We go weeks, sometimes months, without getting an artist in the building with us... then BOOM... all at once. All three bands on The Hope Tour stopped by to chat with me during my shift on Friday and it was a blast!
First I spoke with Abandon about their new record, Searchlights, their name (not to be confused with Abandon Kansas) and all kinds of silly stuff. They were so much fun!
Then Fireflight risked their lives to come and hang out with me in the studio. They were actually in a car accident on the way to the studio, and were pretty shaken up. We caught up with them about their soon-to-be-released CD.
And finally, two of the guys from Remedy Drive stopped in and allowed me to geek out all over them. I love those guys and their music, so I might have made a bit of a fool of myself with 'em, but they were sweet anyway. They hung out after the interview and talked for a while about future plans.
I was super exhausted after that full day of interviews, but my goodness was it fun!
Keep rockin' for Christ!
