It’s Friday again and we hope it’s the start of a great weekend for everybody! Here’s what the members of GRACE@ARMS are up to:

Bastion:

I’ve done some stupid things in YouTube videos like drinking a bottle of Tabasco sauce or speed-eating Qdoba burritos, but I hadn’t yet attempted to chug a 40.  Some people had been pushing me, so here it is (oh, I decided it wasn’t awesome enough so I went ahead and chugged a bottle of Tabasco sauce, too)!  Here’s the short version of the video.  If you want to see the whole version with the Capri Sun and me sitting around, scroll down!

Milo:

I’m fired up because the show on Saturday went well [Thanks, JB for covering! – All] and now I’m preparing to intern in Chicago this summer!

Bastion (again):

If you want to see the whole video (the only parts I really cut out are me waiting to burp), I decided to post that, too:

It’s Friday and we’ve got news!  Bastion will be making a solo acoustic appearance at a several-band concert outside of Imagine Music in New Castle, IN, at 1:00pm on March 31 to support local businesses and charities!  We’ll be posting more information on facebook.com/graceatarms, but save the date!  Now, here’s the band:

Bastion:

I’ll make an official announcement if/when there’s something official to announce, but IF I/GRACE@ARMS had a solo/acoustic project coming out in January, which of our songs on YouTube would you like to see on there?

Vote for your favorites by either going to youtube.com/graceatarms and “Like”ing the songs you’d most like to hear (if you don’t have a YouTube account, they’re free) or by going to facebook.com/graceatarms and voting for songs in the Poll we posted!  If you do both, your vote counts twice.  Vote for as many songs as you’d like!

 (If my vote counted, I’d vote for “A Love Poem For Ghosts”!)

Milo:

I spent Tuesday and Wednesday completing part 1 of the national boards in optometry.  Now it’s time to relax [with me at the resort/casino in French Lick! – Bash]!

Cooper:

We are in the season of growing!  The grass is sprouting anew, trees are budding, and everyone and their buddy is crowding the weight room.  One observation I’ve made is that the best lat pull-down machine is never open!  If I have learned one thing in that place, it’s to circle that piece of equipment like a vulture.  That rant aside, it has been nice to work out more often and feel a little healthier.  Cheers!

It’s hard not to enjoy a Friday.  The boys of GRACE@ARMS seem to be enjoying themselves today, too.  Here’s what they’re thinking:

Bastion:

Tomorrow is my birthday!

…and I guess I’ll finish that thought tomorrow.  So between the now and the future, here’s something I thought of in the past (you know, maybe this is a good quote for the day before the birthday of a man who’s so afraid to grow up):

As it turns out, the best is not necessarily the best, the one is not necessarily the one, and the end of everything doesn’t have to be the end of anything at all.

For those of us who can't read more than 200 words before needing to look at a picture, I've finally dismantled (and begun eating) my chocolate piano.

Milo:

Now, this is the world we live in,
And these are the hands we’re given,
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for.

Cooper:

The weather in Muncie has been phenomenal!  Gorgeous temperatures and sun soaked skies have made commutes to classes so enjoyable.  I’ve been getting the lead out all week.  The beautiful driving weather has put me in a great mood.  Cheers, everyone!
