I found my twin brother!

There once was a band called Five Iron Frenzy that played really good Christian ska music in the late 90's, back when ska was huge. I mean, they played good music before and after then, too, but that's when they reached the big time, at least in the Christian music world. They didn't always play ska, though: they had written several other songs that didn't fit into their ska "mold", and they released albums of these songs under the moniker Brave Saint Saturn. The band has dismantled since then, but their lead singer, Reese Roper, has formed another band called...Roper.

Roper played at the Creation West music festival in George, Washington last weekend, and my buddy Justin, who's a big fan of them, went to see their show. He also got a picture with Reese, and noted that he looked a lot like me. A few years ago, I, too, noticed this similarity when looking at a BSS album cover, but never really noticed the strong resemblance until I saw his picture on Justin's blog.

Take a look:



I'd better call Mom. I think there's something she's not telling me.
