Minus The Bear

Hi. It's been a long long time since I've posted something, but I think I should for some reason. Maybe it comes down to me checking out www.allmusic.com for some basic album reviews and I happened to come upon this band Minus The Bear. I must give Alison much credit for this. Whoa, I just realized that this was the 2nd thing that reminded me of her tonight. I was at Nick's with my friend Dave grabbing a quick beer when this guy just said that they were giving away hats and frisbees from "The Ali G Show." I was like, "Wait! I dated a girl with that name!" I don't know, I thought it was kind of cool. Ok, so I get home and start listening to music and checking out some recent album reviews when I come upon the Minus The Bear album review. Right there I HAD to download the songs that I remembered so well when Alison and I were dating. It's so eerie how one or two songs can bring you to an exact place in time, last summer around this time I met Alison. She was more than anything I could've imagined that a girl could be...really. I remember calling my mom and telling her that I just had the best first date I have ever had in my life. I knew that a lot of good times were to come. But, things came up and we noticed that things weren't going the way that we had wanted...but this all happened for a reason I think. She's much happier with Mike and I'm sincerely happy for her. Things are excellent with me right now, the Air Force, Florida, a new chapter in my life is soon approaching...I'm happy! Anyways, I couldn't help to think twice about these 2 odd reminders of Alison. Maybe I should call her to see what's up? I haven't been good at that really, which sucks. So, anyways...you should really check out Minus The Bear; hilariously strange song titles along with really good pop music. Can anyone top the name "Pantsuit...uugh"? I didn't think so. Thanks for everything Alison.
