Curious Links

As you can see on the right hand side of this web page, I have two links. One to the website that Amber manages (well, used to) and one to my friend Jen's awesome and highly recommended music page. Many friends I have that maintain websites via blogspot have long lists of links directing you to their friends' and various family members' websites. I felt two was good for this site, because I wasn't sure if many of my friends for family would appreciate me linking them to the world. However, I've chosen to add two more links to friends' pages that are devoted to music, art, and things that I find interesting.

The first site belongs to my friend Jenean. I've known Jenean for at least 15 years from when I was an awkward freshman at Boise State University. This may seem like gushing, but I'm sincere when I say Jenean has always been one of the coolest people I've ever known. She has a fantastic taste in music and style and a great sense of humor. While on my church mission in Germany, I remember getting post cards from her out of Poland with pictures of polluted sunsets and decaying industrial buildings always with a cheerful greeting. So, for the music lovers, I recommend that you visit the link to her Digestible Trax website.

The second site belongs to my friend out the the Nasty 'Nati, Sam. I know Sam from my days living in Cincinnati. Sam and I bonded on our mutual love for the band Sigur Ros and European soccer. I didn't know many people who knew who Sigur Ros is, yet alone appreciate the best thing to ever come out of Iceland while I live in Cincinnati. It was hard for me to find many people with similar music and artistic interests while living there. While most in Cincinnati preferred music directed toward country, 50cent, or Nickelback, it was nice to have someone to talk about Sigur Ros, Mew, etc. with. Sam is also brilliant with a camera. Often he uses a Holga camera. Once I stop hoarding musical instruments, I hope to take up the Holga too. In the meantime, I'll just live vicariously through Sam. Please check out his new website.

Don't forget to visit Jen's JenX website. She also has exceptional taste in music and literature. And if you're bored, you can visit the website from my favorite person in the world, Amber. She doesn't update the page anymore, but there are some cute pictures of our girls on it. Amber has great taste in music too in case you were wondering (Muse, Foxy Shazam, Depeche Mode).

Thanks Larry! What lovely gushing. A girl can never be praised too highly. I will have to now check out Sam's site because I too love Sigur Ros (which I discovered about the same time when I was back in North Carolina) and a well- shot (preferably non-photoshopped) pic.
