I don’t have a lot of energy, but I’ll give a few recommendations:
Zach Vinson is going to get married to one of my friends… which makes him pretty awesome already. Add that he’s is taking the midwest by (a very little) storm, as he wrote in a recent update, with his vocal and instrumental talent and he’s reached a whole new level. I don’t mind shameless plugging, so give this little video and look and see what you think. Clever is what I say.
I don’t know much about this girl, just that we have some similar tastes in music (as I unashamedly have “stalked” her on myspace:). She has succeeded in bringing a little spark of inspiration back into my life and I would love to spread it around. You can click on this link to go to her myspace OR you can download her songs for FREE on noisetrade if you just send an email to 5 friends. I promise it’s harmless and you won’t regret it!
Enjoy … and throw a smile at the stars for good measure. Sometimes smiling without any apparent cause will remind you that you indeed have one.
