This, is a picture of a boat my uncle made out scraps of metal he has just laying around. This is something he is very passionate about, and i’m happy for him. The things he welds are some of the sweetest pieces of art I have seen in a long time. He’s made bookends, people, sunflowers, helicopters, crosses…etc. He’s very inspiring.

One more thing that I find very interesting and can not wait until I finally have the money to get are tattoos.

I can wait!!


Music N’ Me

Posted: April 12, 2011 in My Life

I am a college student who’s passion is music (that’s why I go to IPR…). When it comes to music, I am a very diverse listener. I listen to everything from Shania Twain, to Michael Buble, to Parkway Drive, to Lil Jon to Skrillex… I enjoy music in MOST forms. Not a huge country fan much… I have recently since coming to this school, I have found that Dubstep is my favorite style of music, taking the place of my now second favorite style, metal.  It almost seems the things that sound obnoxious to most people is what tends to be my favorite kind of music… ha

I’ve always loved music since as long as can remember… No matter what the form… I grew up on Shania Twain and Bruce Springsteen (some how I made the jump to metal… ha).  Growing up, my dad played the guitar and I always used to watch him and always wanted to play JUST like him. After many years of failed attempts to force myself to practice, I kinda taught myself how to play the bass guitar. I fooled around in a “band” with some friends in high school, but once college came, we all went our separate ways. Since then I haven’t had too much incentive to play… I still goof around with it here and there… Not as much as i’d like though…

My biggest passion right now is live sound (running sound for bands at shows). I have a job at a bar close to where I live, and I also run sound for the Sunday night service. I love it SO much!! Being behind the console and being in complete control over the entire sound is something I guess I live for. I feel so alive when I do it… It’s almost like a drug for me..

One thing that recently has caught my attention is DJing. I haven’t really ever done it to much before but it’s SUPER interesting and i’m in the process of learning how it’s done. I have a few “gigs” planned for this summer that i’m really excited for too.

Well this is just a little about me and music’s part in my life…

Thanks for reading!
