I know, I know… you’re sitting there reading this thinking “Why is there a post about a book written by Justin Furstenfeld on the TwilightMOMS blog?” There is a method to my madness (and a Twilight connection), I promise!
I’m the first to admit that I will use any excuse to blog about Blue October. I can’t help it! Stephenie introduced me to their music through her playlists and the Breaking Dawn tour and I’ve fallen hard. (No, I’m not stalking my UPS man to find out when my Special Edition of Breaking Dawn with the Breaking Dawn Tour DVD in it is going to get here, why would you suggest such a thing?)
Because of my love of all things Blue October I just had to have a copy of Crazy Making by Justin Furstenfeld. Imagine my delight when the book arrived and I discovered that the forward was written by the very woman that brought Blue October into my life- Stephenie Meyer!
No, I’m not going to post the forward- you have to buy your own copy to know that info
What exactly is Crazy Making? Here’s the product description from the Blue October Store-
Okay, you asked for the book, and here it is. This amazing package includes Justin’s first book spanning over 100 pages and including all lyrics from The Answers through Approaching Normal, and Justin’s own thoughts on the how, why and when many of these songs came to life. The perfect companion piece to listen through all of the albums. This is a high quality hard cover, full color book.
You can purchase your copy of Crazy Making here.
By the way- the guys are currently touring with Switchfoot. I was able to catch their show last week here in Salt Lake and it was amazing! (I’m currently scheming to figure out how I can get to another show… anyone want to donate to my Blue October groupie fund?) If you’ve never seen Blue October live don’t miss out! See if they are coming to a venue near you here.
