Born on the Eve of Our First Anniversary
Mon., Mar. 26. 2007 1:37am EDT
A fan of ours in Illinois named Caitlin sent us the nice email below a couple weeks ago. Ironically, as we went to post it to the website on March 26, we noticed that we were posting it on her birthday.
Here's something extra cool. We're posting this on the eve of our 15th anniversary as ApologetiX. Caitlin was born on the eve of our first anniversary.
I've been a fan of yours for about three years, since I heard "All the Stalls Stink" at a retreat. I loved it. I went two years with out knowing the band. Oh, those wasted years.
When last year my cousin and I went to a concert of yours, we noticed a DVD playing. Guess what song was playing? "All the Stalls Stink." I had found the band of my dreams. I've been listening ever since.
And now that I think of it, around 97 percent of the songs on my i-Pod are your songs. Even though my friends have no idea what I'm singing when I sing your "alternative" lyrics to their favorite songs, I don't care. It's better than their uncensored rap.
What's a really funny sight is seeing me on the elipical trainer at the YMCA while I lip sync to your songs. Every one looks at me like I'm weird. But then again, I am.
Happy 14th birthday, Caitlin!
