We Heart You Too (and your oversized Rice Krispy treat)

The tour has been humming along nicely.

We spent the fourth of July in Austin, TX, 'Merica. It was wonderful. There were fireworks and scared bats everywhere.

We had a splendid day in San Antonio, and a nice morning-time sing along in Houston (we opened the stage that day).

After Texas we took a few days off and reconvened in Atlanta. I finally bought toothpaste for the first time since losing my personal supply on the second day of tour. Its nice to be back with my own brand.

Yesterday we began our descent into Florida with a show in Mickey's hood. I was loving me some Orlando until I blew out my voice in song. I didn't realize how bad it was until I woke up today and gathered that St. Pete was most likely going to hear me sound like St. Pete Brady for thirty minutes. Nonetheless, the show was another dose of fun in the sun.

As for tonight, I'm about to go cook up some throat coat, and stay out of the present rainstorm.

Maggie said...

P.S. I've been skimming your blogs... one day I will blog like you. I think these things, I just don't write them down. My blog on here is mostly for the little old church ladies who half raised me and live on the other side of the country (they're advanced little old church ladies, who seem to understand the interwebs, but not my sense of humor.)

Mr. Thiessen,
I love your cleverness and wittiness. You always make me laugh.
And by the way, congrats on your engagement, and the Bee Sides is simply amazing. Keep up the good work!

Andrea said...

Melanie said...

Kudos to the Krispy treat designer. LOL

I almost brought you some Throat Coat tea. Great stuff. But then I forgot everything at home anyway, so it wouldn't have been much help.

You know, if you mentioned your toothpaste brand, you'd probably never have to buy it again. LOL

Curious about the bats. Remind me to tell you a strange but true bat story sometime.


The Alexis and Bradley Podcast... Show said...

Jess :]] said...

Glad you're having lots of fun. Sucks about your voice though. :(
I was talking to my friend who saw you in FL and she didn't have anything bad to say about your set. So even with a blown out voice you're still awesome. That's crazy. Feel better, Tea, Son. (hahaha)

Nina said...

that's one nifty rice crispie treat ^
i wish i could think of things like that, lol :)

and whoa! firworks and toothpaste all in a couple days. that's exciting.. and it really is, cause i don't much like using a different brand of toothpaste.. i'm really picky... i use crest. and i just rambled.. sorry

ouch.. i hope that you get better soon! That sounds like it's not the most pleasant thing that could happen... =/ so i hope you feel better!

I attempted to make you a birthday cake last year. It was ugly unlike that Rice Krispie square...square.

Mel is totally right about never having to buy toothpaste again if you mentioned the brand.


Ahhhh thunderstorms are everywhere around here! x_x

Don't get burnt in the sun!

I'm glad you enjoyed your time in Texas. It is a very nice, hot, humid, and balmy place. Good people though.

It's off topic but, I just wanted to tell you that I'm really enjoying the new tunes, and the remixed ones. I hope you all decide to do a fall tour and come to Dallas. I wouldn't miss it for the world.

I would imagine you guys would need a break after Warped though. I'd understand. Enjoy the rest of your time on the road.

Considering I had been up since 5am, and I worked a 12 hour day with 65 children, I shoud not have been awake at 11:30pm Friday night, much less making a shameless plug for my church. Sorry about that, I had planned to take that down Saturday morning but never got to a computer. Thanks for getting to it first.

Your gig on Saturday was great, I got there just in time. You guys were awesome, I hope your voice is feeling a little less blown out!

Chris Edge said...

New CD is amazing Matt!

You guys are still rocking my world.
Keep it up.
Come back to New Zealand!
I didn't see you guys when you came to Parachute in '04.

By the way, got your new CD!
Cool, way cool. I resent 'The Vinyl Countdown' though, I know what records are!!! I even remember listening to some Disney books on record or something when I was a kid... but barely. Lol.
