Last night I went to bed with a sad feeling and a bit angry. The break up of A Rocket To The Moon make me think about all my favorites bands, specially The Summer Set.
I used to listen ARTTM, it was one of those bands that “change” my life. I grew up listening them and I still can’t believe they are not going to do music anymore.
The news made me feel like someone was breaking up with me without telling me the reason and you don’t know how to act because you don’t know what’s wrong. I would like to think they did that because they want to undertake new projects individually.
Well, they won’t tell us the reason but you know, I was thinking about how I’m going to feel if one of my other favorites band broke up. I mean, I can’t imagine my life without The Summer Set.
I become a fan in 2009 and I remember their music change something in me. I was having a bad moment in my life, everything was changing in all my around and I was not prepared for live that. After three years where I was listening, posting and checking everything about them every single day, I had the opportunity of see them in London. I’m immensely grateful with Laura, she was who cheered me up to travel to the UK from Spain just for see them. I lived an amazing moment that I will never forget.
I’m not sure if I will go to see them again, I hope so, but sometimes the opportunities don’t match when you can, for example this May…
What I’m trying to say, it’s ‘carpe diem’, seize the day, live the moment, enjoy of the opportunities that life gives you, go to all the shows you can of your favorite bands, enjoy the time with your family and friends and enjoy the life because unfortunately everything is not forever.
I hope nobody feel depressed for this, but it took me time to realize that all we have is the present. So, we just need to enjoy it!
“A lot of people have been questioning what’s going on with My Girl Friday. To be honest, I don’t think any of us knows. Saying we are “broken up” is stupid because we are all best friends who hang out and always have hung out. We just started making music for fun, and fell in love with it. It turned into something, and we took it way farther than we ever imagined we could. We still do write songs, and it’s real fun. Maybe, we’ll record them sometime. There does come a point though, where being realistic about your life and goals has to come to the forefront of your mind. I’ve personally spent the last six to eight months looking at where I was, where I want to be going, really focusing on preparing myself for the future, and trying to better my attitude in many aspects of my life. I’m happy now putting God, my family, work, friendships, physical health and future goals at the top of my priority list. I am not a celebrity, I am not anyone extra special, I’m a normal guy, with a normal job, and thats what I want. This isn’t to say I’m never going to make music again, but I’m actually pretty tired of keeping this whole “band dude” image/lifestyle/attitude. It’s nothing against anyone who still does it. Some of my best friends are extremely successful doing this. And I hope it never ends for them. I’m just happy to walk away from that aspect. I do thank each and every single person who has been a part of this journey with us. Seriously was rad to visit states on the other side of the country and hear people singing songs (especially in New York City last year) that Ryan, Tyler, Logan, Josh, Vic and I wrote during some drunken night or just some late night hang out session. I’d love to stay in contact with anyone and everyone. I’m still me. Just at this important point in my life where I need to be real. Hope this clears up some questions. For fun, I’d be curious to know your favorite song we ever wrote? Top 3 for me would be “Love Will Find You” “April Jean” and “Too Young To Know” maybe just because they mean the most to me personally. Much love. - Justin”

They are not doing shows anymore and Justin Godsey did that version by his own… But they didn’t broke up officially and anything like that.
Am I missing anything? Please tell me!
Sunday night reunion. With instruments.
I got a new mirror. Obviously had to test it out…
Real exciting New Years for this guy! Whatever, this Mississippi Mud intrigues me.
My Girl Friday is playing their first show as a full band tonight at The Rogue Bar in Scottsdale, Arizona. They haven’t played a show together in over 6 months. Check them out if you haven’t and if you are in the Scottsdale area, go to the show and show some love!
