Now You Know What I Did This Rocket Summer


I don't know if you guys have seen the Rocket Summer video for Do You Feel, but for some reason, Bryce let me be in it. Check it out here. A bunch of my buddies are in the video too... looking less nerdy than me. The video is pretty cool though.... Makes me smile and think.


Last night's West Des Moines show was a great time, and we're excited to continue that trend in MN tonight.

Much love.

yes, goodness i have seen it!
What an awesome video and message. Nice job Sir Thiessen. Way to hold that hand out :)

Brittany said...

yeah, there'd be another awesome video out right about now with your face featured in it if a few people would've mouthed a little line very quickly in front of a camera.

The video would've inspired kids everywhere to beam each other up.

oh oh ohhhh,
no, we're not beaming. :(

Nina said...

it makes me smile

Kara said...

Among other things, Bryce's (sweet!) video makes me wonder how long it took to wash those words off your hands.


Aaaand... I have to agree with what a certain Brito said above. There IS another video sitting around half-completed.

Oh oh ohhh
we COULD be beaming...

My heart is smiling in your direction right now.

Mr. Thiessen,

For being so talented, you seem to have very low self-esteem. When I happen past your blog or catch you in concert with Switchfoot, you have a way of always down-playing yourself. I don't know how appropriate it is for me to be pointing that out, but I truely hope that you can see the wonderful creation God made in you. Not nerdy at all. :)

P.S. Thanks for the refferal. I've never heard that band before, but I think they are going to be one I'll keep my ears open for.

Very cool. I hadn't watched the video yet. Some day I'll empty my hard drive and have the video/audio actually match up consistently. LOL Man, can I relate to the message on your hand! LOL

And Bryce is seriously one of the nicest people and very talented. I just saw him on the 19th. :)

nna said...

BTW, love the the video.
