The New Skillet

So I have gone out running for the last five days in a row... yea!

When running, I used to listen to Skillet. Good exercise music! But even the best bands are less fun to listen to when you listen to them too much (which is why the Beetles suck... they have been listened to one too many times). Anywho, I have found some new good exercise music.

In the last few days I have been listening to Family Force 5. They have an amazing sound... if you like their genre. They are punk rock, and "I Love them to Death". If you want a taste of their music, check out their most popular song "Love Addict", and if you want to see trippy Ninjas, cute girls, and robots, watch the YouTube version of the Love Addict music video. (BTW, am I the only one that when watching that YouTube video, the video and audio are not synced? It is very obvious when the lips fill the screen and everyone is dancing off beat.)

In the beginning of this week, I was listening to Éowyn. Yes, that is her real name. No, she is not the fictional character from Lord of the Rings. Yes, her dad was a big fan of the books, and... well, you get the picture. Anywho, she has a great sounding voice, and her music is amazing. Great exercise music! (her homepage and MySpace have more samples of her music). Oh and she is hot.

The other day, while running, some of her lyrics stood out to me. From the song I'm Ready:
I've come to this place in my life
Where I know all I really need is You
I'm your child, I'm your beloved
So I'll wait, trusting you while you [something]
I don't care what they say, I'm ready
Ready for your outpouring of grace
I'm ready to be all that you have made me to be
Ready for your glory Lord,
I'm ready for the plans you have for me

Anywho, I just thought that those lyrics were cool. Something I don't mind praying every once in a while.

BTW, I turned off the "autoplay" on my "new theme song" in the other post... your welcome.

Yeah, thanks for that. We all know that chicks dig you, but I've already heard it too many times ;-)

Oh and I went to Amman Jordan with a girl whose actual, legal name was Galadriel.
