Wild Hearts (4 Life)

Around our neighborhood of Highland there are several gangs. The 26 Bears, 318 kings, Gorilla Crew, and the most ferociously feared, awesomely beautiful, intimidatingly awesome WILD HEARTS. This is their (our) story.

On a fall night in 2007, Amy and I were walking down a street. My pink bandanna that had once been on my leg fell, so I put it on my head. Amy said, "You look like you are in a gang."

"I am in a gang."

both of us laugh and then I (in my characteristic excited moment that always scares Landon bc I jump suddenly and gasp an incredible amount of air) say

"Can we really be a gang?!"

Amy laughs, "Of course."


"Can we be called the Wild Hearts?"

"Of course."

"Awesome. I always wanted to be in a gang."

From then on there was no stopping us. From hanging our posters or redecorating the boys' rooms.

More stories on this later.

Josh West Planet
or as he's known in his band
Joshua October.

Either way, he's a snazzy dresser. And if you weren't sure, yes, that is Cher on his shirt.

This is a band called Destroy Nate Allen that played at Dalzell last night. The only way to describe them is what a friend said, 'you are forced to either join in and have fun, or leave and look like you think you are too cool'. They are a fun couple who sing quirky songs about love, cooking, and punk rock with some acoustic guitar, banjo and tamborine.

This is one of my best friends and fellow Wild Heart, Jessiga. She is dancing to Christina Aguilara.

This is Grumpkin. I made him for Landon (the bf) before he went on tour.

He was a bit obsessed with the game Munchkin for a while so I made a little monster as an imaginary character that could be in the game. He is made from jeans, material and the bottom half of a bear I got in London. (the poor guy is just one of the stuffed animals that didn't survive the 2 large dogs that lived in my last house... but being one that has a hard time throwing things away and with my constant motto of 'i can make it' - Benjamin Bear now lives on as a munchkin.)
