Exploding Your Ears
My brother Sam and a few of his good buddies have been making music for years. It's what they love to do. One day when I got home from a run (see, this blog's about running too) Sammy came up to me and asked what my opinion on 'Baers' is for a band name.
"Bears, bears, how do you spell it?"
"B-A-E-R-S. Baers. Or should it have a 'Z' at the end instead of an 'S'?"
"No. Baers is good. Keep the 'S'."
Days, weeks, months down the road this music has been playing every time I see Sam. After posting songs on his blog, facebook, and twitter, Baers was finally recognized on http://www.earmilk.com/ in an article today saying that they're "almost as underground as you can imagine". I'll quote the article again with "I've never heard of the Baers before and boy have I been missing out."
