The last 10 years of kicking my own ass at concerts is starting to pay off. My music experiences have finally started reaching epic proportions. Thanks to the zine and BAMP I've been living some of my dreams these last few months.
Getting to meet the some of the guys from one of my all time favorite bands, Thrice and got to scream my lungs out up in VIP (while trying to not over exert myself due to the injuries from the car collision) along with my closest friends. I was still buzzin days after that one. I've met some of the most talented musicians in my life here on the island. And have got to watch their gradual rise to greatness and capture it all behind the lens. Friends of Adam, I'm lookin your way! So much damn undiscovered talent in the islands and I get to live the experience night after night and share it through my pictures and our zine.
Got to hang with Spencer from Underoath and learn from him first hand that it is possible to live your dreams. And I got to be apart of it once again with my camera.
And just 2 days ago, DRAGONFORCE! HOLY HELL!!! That had to be one of the most fun experiences I've been able to be apart of. I got permission from BAMP to run around and take pictures in the photo pit for the first 3 songs! Just me and 2 other ridiculously passionate photoheads. Right at the foot of the stage! I'm still smilin'. I felt so darn "accomplished". Feels like its all starting to come together.
Than I got to go absolutely nuts in "THE PIT". I had to prove to myself that I could do it again after all that I've been through with the accident. And it was the most fun I've had in years! Got to have hundreds of other insane fans carry me over there heads who brought me face to face with the band again. I had so many friends in that audience it was overwhelming. And now thanks to technology I get to share that night with the world as I saw them! How freakin awesome is that!
