Hey, thanks for the invite. It's a pleasure to digitally meet a fellow Switchfoot enthusiast! Yeah, I am taken by the lyrical genius of Jon and his bro and by the uncatagorized raw sound all the band push out. Can't wait to finish my EP collection with Summer!

About Me Aside from being a music-aholic, let's see... I love reading great fiction (from such authors as Matt Bronleewe, Davis Bunn, Ted Dekker, John Grisham, T.L. Hines, Stephen R. Lawhead, C.S. Lewis, Robert Liparulo, Charles Martin, Robin Parrish, Andrew Peterson, Michael Phillips, J.K. Rowling, Edward Rutherfurd, Bodie & Brock Thoene, Travis Thrasher, J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Whitlow, etc), I love photography (both taking shots myself & appreciating others' pics), & watching some TV (such as Bones, Chuck, Fringe, Lost, Smallville, So You Think You Can Dance, Supernatural, The Colbert Report, The Daily Show & The Simpsons).

Albertine by Brooke Fraser "Albertine", by Brooke Fraser, is an incredibly well crafted album, sung by an incredibly talented singer/songwriter. At times her sound resembles Nichole Nordeman, sometimes Sarah McLachlin, and still at other times a bit like Sara Groves - which is ...
Prince Caspian - Official Movie Soundtrack by Various Artists - Soundtracks I have to admit I'm a huge fan of movie soundtracks and scores! They're a wonderful way to continue to enjoy a great movie even long after the credits have rolled and you're already awaiting the next big block-buster.
