I met Juan in 2002 on Makeoutclub (my first online profile, a community for "indie rockers"). I was barely 18. Juan and I have since tried to come up with better stories for our initial meeting, but the truth of it: we met online, emailed for a bit, decided to meet up at the bookstore on the University of Texas campus, and went to P.F. Chang's (I brought a fellow dorm dweller because I was scared to meet up with a stranger).
We've been the best of friends ever since (except for a short blip when I was being weird). Juan would make me the greatest mixed CD's. I still have the first one he made for me back in September of 2002.
When I moved to Boston in 2006, we stayed close. I saw him at least 2-3 times a year. And now that I've been in Boston for over five years, well... it has been a while. Juan has always loved Eisley and I have always loved Juan, so for today's sixty seconds of sound: a minute-long bare bones cover of Eisley's I Wasn't Prepared.
THE SUNDAY SOUND: October 30, Eisley for Juan. In 60 seconds.
