Bastion’s speed-eating burritos, Milo’s partying for Little 5, and Cooper’s slack lining!  Check it out!

Also, we’re a week and a day away from our concert at Mike & Joe’s in New Castle, Indiana so be sure to tell your friends, make your plans, order your sick new t-shirts, and pick up your GRACE@ARMS cards (worth $1 off the ticket price)!  In the mean time, here’s what we’re up to:

Bastion:

After I ate that over-stuffed Qdoba burrito in about two minutes, my good friend Andy Adams approached me about eating another one.  I felt like I spent too much time chewing last time and was pretty sure I could beat my time, so Adams and I sat down to tackle a pair of well-packed chicken burritos with fajita veggies, ancho chili BBQ sauce, rice, two scoops of extra-hot salsa, a scoop of corn salsa, cheese, and sour cream.  These things were monsters, but, when I matched my previous time of 2:08 and Adams polished off his burrito, we celebrated… by eating a second round of giant, over-stuffed burritos!

Milo:

I’m enjoying my final Little 5 week at IU!  BOOM!!!

Cooper:

My friend introduced me to slack lining this week.  Before attempting the endeavor, I was apprehensive.  In retrospect, I was right to be.  Slack lining is like safe, easier tightrope walking.  I used the word “safe” loosely.  If you slip, and the line happens to get between your legs, complications arise.  My advice;  respect the line.

If you’re in or around New Castle, Indiana, come out to see Bastion and Cooper play a short acoustic set at a block party outside of Imagine Music tomorrow at 1:00pm!  The event is set up to benefit local charities (like God’s Grain Bin) and local businesses.

Bastion:

Milo and I went t0 a hotel last weekend but forgot to bring a bottle opener so I improvised with a door frame:

Milo:

“When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.  Live your life in such a manner that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.” – Traditional Indian Saying

P.S.  Those of you who follow my Twitter and Facebook know I’m a big fan of eating big things.  I ordered a sandwich from JBolts, a local deli here in New Castle, Indiana which I’d call the shop’s flagship sub, but it’s more like an entire fleet!  Here are two funny pictures of me trying to bring the giant down:
