guess this movie quote...

Okay I'm not sure that anyone actually reads my blog (well maybe 1 or 2), but here is quote number 2.  Guess what movie this is from and you win 10 points of coolness.

Quote #2:  "In the Alamo.  In the basement."


and I got the first quote wrong:

Quote #1: "You don't want to get mixed up with a guy like me.  I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel."

new song

it's way too late to be posting on blogger right now, but oh well.  for anyone who cares and doesn't know already, I put the Noteworthy CD in the mail yesterday.  In other words, I sent all the materials required to be duplicated to Pennsauken, NJ or some weird place like that and  in about 1.5-2 weeks I will be sent 1,000 copies of an album that I spent almost a year working on...and that's it...weird.  
the only thing is, I am now swamped with recording for the next one--preparations, rehearsal polishing & booking studio time...as well as engineering & producing the whole thing. And on top of that planning a trip to Oregon in 3 weeks and arranging a joint song for Noteworthy and Divisi...  YIKES!  everything has just snuck up on me.  So, I will probably be staying in Utah for a week or two after my contract runs out to finish recording.  I squatted at this place for the whole month of September--ssshhh don't tell management---so I figure I can do it again.

ANYWAY...the other part of this post was that I wrote a "new song" over Christmas break.  I was inspired by certain events occurring in my life and others' lives and it was specifically dedicated to a friend of mine...you know who you are... she wanted me to put the lyrics up, so here they are.  The song is called ENOUGH.

Is it enough,
just to love and be loved by someone
Is it enough,
to not give up, if giving up is something
when what you give
is what you got
but what you got is nothing
more to give.
Is it enough?

And in your life
you need a break,
but what you want is broken.
You carry on,
your mind's awake
but now your body's frozen.
just showing up could be that tough
just being there with someone,
is it enough
is it enough

the light is dim and shadows show up on your face
your hope is gone you're waiting for that saving grace
but all that I can give to you is just to say

When hope is gone,
you'll carry on til tomorrow.
You need a friend,
you've reached the end,
but find your heart keeps going.
You do your best, 
with all the rest,
and though you can't tell now,
it'll be enough
it'll be enough

Is it enough,
to face the truth
when tragedy has fallen
and even worse the truth hurts
those were your last words spoken
What would you say,
if everyday,
you had the chance but now,
you're not there to say it
what would you say?

the years have gone and lines now show up on your face
your hope is gone you're waiting for that saving grace
but all that I can give to you is just to say

When hope is gone,
you'll carry on til tomorrow.
you need a friend,
you've reached the end,
but find your heart keeps going.
you do your best,
with all the rest,
and though you can't tell now,
it'll be enough.
it'll be enough.

(outro)


the end...until next time...

p.s. this was brought up in conversation tonight...if anyone can guess what movie this is from...without having talked to me already...you win 10 extra cool bonus points. (Jackie I'm counting on you:)

"I'm a rebel, Dottie. An animal.  You don't want to get mixed up with a guy like me."

Fix You

This song was so profound to me when it first came out and I'm not gonna lie...when they played this, I might've shed a tear.

I'm a little angry with Utah right now because it started to warm up and I was so ready to embrace the weather change...I felt like I emotionally committed to spring weather...and then it snowed tonight. blasted Utah.

Reminiscing...

My friend Amy had a baby today.  I can't believe it's been 12 years since I moved to Oregon and we became friends.  Shout out to her and her beautiful boy.  This is a picture of us shortly before she left for her mission and when I was tan...those days have long gone:).

My brother is weird...I don't need any evidence, but we love him, and here is why:

Driving up to Humphrey's Peak..this is the exact moment he came up with "excitahrrea"...the elevation kind of got to all of us...as seen in the next video--just listen to my mom..she can't even talk.

Driving in Seattle summer 05...good times. // And this is just another illustration of why we love him.

Definitely saw this on someone else's blog.  But...still hilarious.
