I just wanted to say that the fact that you have this picture up makes my heart melt and melts my face off because of its awesomeness. I trust you're exciting about Brave Saint Saturn's 'Anti-Meridian'?
And by the way, Reese Roper is the man.

YOU"RE tellin me.....geeez.
I really miss them...they are my hearts music....long live FIF.


anyway, what a great time that show was.....I've know these guys for a long time...and they gave me free reign of their stage and told me I could go wherever I wanted.....so I did....and I stood on the drum riser next to nick for the last few songs hoping to get a crazy shot of Reese or something.....this was the last shot I took, and I freaked out when it happened I was so happy. hahhha.

wow! that's amazing! very cool.

sigh. the loss of Roper and Five Iron Frenzy is more saddening to me, because i only learned about them AFTER the split up... so i never got to see their shows or anything! i feel like i've missed out on something really important.

FIF forever! maybe someday they'll randomly go on a reunion tour... sigh... one can only hope...

I'm pretty sure I've commented on this before, but heck. Look at that trademark Rubber Chicken....

I can't believe they broke up before a second album....no more Reese for us.

Apparently he's gonna be performing at Soul Fest '07. but it says it's just him, and not Roper

thank you so much. and as a fellow fan- trust me- I understand. haha, but a great deal of credit for that shot should rightly go to all the guys in Roper. Without them being my friends, and letting me be anywhere I wanted on stage- I would not have had the opportunity to sit on the drum riser next to Nick to get those shots. It was a great day!
