Talk about diversity! Well, my current fave song is "We Live" by Superchick. I want to find a way to have it as my Ringtone (finally upgraded to a phone that does that). Before I went to their website, I had no idea who was in the band. I thought it was a couple of girls like BarlowGirl. Shows what I know.

Anyways, I'm starting to listen to more alternative Christian punk/rock because I am just not quite ready for Christmas music. I LOVE Christmas carols, but every time I put on the fish (since like the 15th of this month or something, the Monday after Veteran's Day) it's some regular song, like "All I want for Christmas". And frankly, Thanksgiving is my fave holiday. You get to really concentrate on the people and spending time together and not the rampant commercialism of the winter solstice. Can't we celebrate Thanksgiving and THEN get on to the sales? What happened to waiting till the day AFTER Thanksgiving to start the commercialism? Now it starts like a week before Halloween.

Hrm, two of my fave bands are on myspace ... should I get yet another community type account? Nah! well, maybe. but it's not like I even have enough time to keep up on my blog. Let alone the kids'.

Ok. it's the day before Thanksgiving. I haven't cooked anything and I have a TON of cleaning to do. *sigh* I need a maid or three.

These lyrics introduced the siblings (not as a band) to the worldÂ?with quite the compliment to the BarlowsÂ? stand on purityÂ?and three years later BarlowGirl went on to release its self-titled Fervent Records debut, becoming Christian musicÂ?s best-selling new artist of 2004. TheyÂ?ve now sold more than 230,000 copies of BarlowGirl, seen songs Â?MirrorÂ? and Â?Never AloneÂ? skyrocket up the Christian airplay charts, and received accolades aplenty. With the recent release of BarlowGirlÂ?s sophomore effort, Another Journal Entry, we knew it was time to catch up with the increasingly popular trio. And taking into account the special friendship between Superchic[k] and 20Â?year old Lauren, 23Â?year old Alyssa and 25Â?year old Becca, we asked Superchic[k] vocalist/guitarist Melissa Brock to sit down with the sisters and find out how theyÂ?ve grown up. ...
