WARNING: Listening to this music doesn't require parental approval. It's a bit of clean rebellion. It keeps your outlook up and your hope alive. It's got strong drums and screaming guitars. It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

I just got back from a fun afternoon. I played a real gig.

Well, not real in the sense that I didn't get paid. But real in the sense that it was long. Three 45 minute sets of all me.

It was for a craft fair at the Cottonwood Mall. I played and sang while people walked by and ate. I was pretty much background music, though once in a while, I think someone was actually listening. I did get some good comments from the vendors, anyway!

The first set I was nervous, and I made a lot of mistakes. Each set got better, and I did vary the setlist each time.

The last set, Jodi and Brendon came in to see me, and that was a lot of fun. I knew at least two people were listening, anyway!

I debated on whether or not to play songs like "The Taker" or "Wake the Dead", that are more religious, but in the end I decided to go ahead. I thought, this is me, and if there's a problem, so be it!

It also reminded me a lot of a clever thought I had heard once. It said, "Never be afraid to show your true self. Not because honesty is best, but because no one is paying attention to you anyway."
