Man...  I was having a downer of a day until this evening when Fatigi came to record 3 new songs.  I was really, really tired throughout the day, and thought I was sure to have a hard time focusing when Fatigi came over. Then I heard them play. Honestly, I haven't been this awake in a long time.  Music just seems to envigorate my...

Okay...  I know it's a little bit late, but I thought I needed to write about my B-day anyway.  It was the 14th, and evidently, the 16th, too. So, the 14th began with a great time eating lots of great food.  Pancakes for breakfast, my best friend Scott took me to my all-time favorite Thai restaurant and we got some insanely delicio...

I've recently had the awesome opportunity to work on a good friend's musical masterpiece.  He calls it "Vain Consolation", and it really is quite awesome.  I'll post a snippet if I can soon.  We're still waiting for some of the musical puzzle pieces to be put into place, and when that happens, we'll have a pretty incredible...

It's a new day, And so I must fight. Fight for my right live! As time gose on, I know my suffering will be small. But why must I stuggle at all? Time will go on, And soon I'll be, Just another scar on your heart. Am I so  alone? My sadness and pain, I'll never show. But will time go on for me? Can there be light behind my sorrow...

The first verse which caught me in the reading of the last half of 2nd Nephi 9 was verse 39. The question came to mind:  "Why would God need to have us "remember" the awfulness of sin?" ...  Well...  The answer is quite simple, really.  Because Satan laces all sorts of lies within the temptation of sin.&nbs...

The beginning of this talk was set by talking about the experience President Gordon B.

It's been a long time since I have read the Book of Mormon.  Well, I decided to repent tonight and read where I left off at Mosiah.

I'm not in the mood to write much, but I figure that since work is kind of slow today, that it would do me good to watch and write about a conference talk right about now. Elder Perry's talk seemed to talk about a topic which would benefit a lot of people today - simplicity. As far as I go, I can think right now of one specific thing which I co...
