I think it is astounding how people can listen to this…
And turn it into this:
Wow. I am speechless! Boyce Avenue turned this into a really beautiful song, something I would never even consider happening. I love music that has a kind of meaning, honesty, if you will. It makes it so powerful.
Take a listen and compare.
I was going to write about how cool the concert was, but I decided, nah. I don’t wanna, and guess what? You aren’t going to change my mind! 😛
I really only remember A) screaming like a possessed fangirl when I saw Forest Kline, and B) wanting so badly to be up onstage.
I love concerts because of the effort put in by the artist. They don’t get up and sing, they get up and PERFORM, and that’s what I love. Seeing someone put so much passion into doing what they love gives me hope, and more than the vibrating of the thunderous bass, the emotion is what I remember. Watching someone bare their soul for the world to see, and shamelessly flaunting it is inspiring. I want to do that in the world; put my life into words, and put those words to music, and I want to express it for someone. Be it five people, fifty, or five thousand, it makes no difference. If I can reach at least one person through my performance, and somehow make them feel better, than I have done my job.
I feel like music is what I was meant to do in this life. I want to be an influence for good in what I do, and music is the powerful, driving force that follows all of us where we go. Think about it: you are surrounded by music. It’s a world you can’t ignore, it’s a delicate balance of pure goodness and pure evil. If you seek out the beauty, your life is better for it.
I think I’ll try hard, and someday get there.
Hello, this is Haeley’s alter ego, Addi Song. I am so named because I am ADDIcted to music and SONGs. Clever, eh? Anyway, I am here to geek out about something so musically awesome, it is guaranteed to blow your socks off. As Haeley was perusing Ingrid Michaelson’s online store, she found something called a Playbutton. This intrigued her so much that she invited me over to investigate. We found out that the Playbuttton is just that: It’s a wearable button (like campaign buttons or the many buttons Haeley has adorning her book bag), only the fun doesn’t stop there: IT’S ACTUALLY AN MP3 PLAYER. HOW COOL IS THAT?! It’s like an iPod shuffle, only stylish and freaking cool. It comes preloaded with the songs, so all you ever need to do is rock out to it, and charge it occasionally. Here’s Ingrid’s:
It looks like a normal button, right?! ISN’T THAT SPECTACULAR?!?!?!?!! I am SO making Haeley save up to buy one. (It’s only 19.99!! [plus shipping and handling and tax, it would probably be closer to 25 or something, but that’s beside the point. It’s cheap! And cool!]) And don’t worry about Penelope, Haeley’s beloved iPod. She won’t fall by the wayside, I promise you. This is just an awesome way to WEAR your MUSIC. I am still totally geeking out. It’s just so very geek-outable.

So awesome, right??
This is Addi song, signing off!
Hey! It’s me, Haeley. Sorry about Addi. She gets a little excited sometimes. Thanks for being patient with her! She’s a bit of a newbie blogger. Ta ta!
