Best part about being in TFL: rocking out the living room in ryans house, 20 min. breaks when we discuss napkin setlists, tamirs mom, deers made out of paper cups, dizzy, potatoe and wholeweat bread, ornaments that fall and break off the piano, shoes that fly out of nowhere, blown fuses, prank phone calls....

Theres more to a band then looks.  Some ordinary people may think not, but you can tell when someone puts there heart into their music,........ then looks seems to be pointless. We may not be the most flashy type band, sure we dont have all the looks but who gives a rats ass.
Having a good time while doing the thing you like most makes you forget sometimes about what someone thinks about you (good or bad) which is the best thing of all........          ~TFL
