Flyleaf – Part 2

Let’s just say I’m a “huge” fan of girl bands, especially Flyleaf. In case you missed it, I love Hey Monday, Sick of Sarah, and Paramore as well.

My closest friends always ask me, “Why do you like girl singers and bands so much?” I personally have no clue, but I am drawn to them much more than the likes of Linkin’ Park and *gag* Nickelback.

The new Flyleaf album Memento Mori (iTunes link) is the band’s sophomore effort. In honesty, I think the original is overall superior, but the new effort has two songs that I think are absolutely and breathtakingly fabulous. It also solidifies in my mind that Flyleaf is indeed a Christian band.

Tiny Heart


This song appears to be a person waiting for that other person to notice them. I sense more symbolism, and with Flyleaf, there definitely is some. I just can’t quite pick up on it.

Arise

A very uplifting song to remember that humankind is one and that it’s worth fighting for. It’s a song that tells us to not quit when it’s difficult.

His varied background has him working with WordPress since 2006, eventually creating his own plugin which, of course, lead to more. He spends quite a bit of his time volunteering with the WordPress project as a core and polyglot contributor. With all of his passions, writing has been the way Ronald expresses himself best. He has written both technical books as well as fiction. Some of his works include Project Mayhem, Mindefusement, and WordPress and Ajax. “You can only delay the inevitable” is his favorite quote. Ronald enjoys reading Stephen King and John Grisham. When he’s not writing, Ronald dreams of building websites filled with cats yawning, disclaimers his strong opinions, sings karaoke, and advocates for empathy surrounding mental health.
