David Schmitt by Cynthia-Blair David Schmitt by Cynthia-Blair
David Schmitt of Breathe Carolina

Didn't we enjoy ourselves
when we destroyed ourselves?
Whatever happens we're fine
We're on our last life, we'll make no compromise
whatever happens we're fine

Spare us the rescue, Back on the street a mile up in the sky
Spare us the rescue. I'm close with my demons there's no need to hide
Spare us the rescue. I've worn out my sins, I need new ones to shine
It takes, takes some, takes some dying to feel alive…
- lyrics from Rescue, Breathe Carolina


saw him at the Fearless Friends Tour! story in my journal

Thanks!! His tattoos took the longest, for sure! I love that when he explained them, one sleeve is his dark side, and one his light side. I love hearing people tell why they got certain tattoos, it's so personal and interesting :D

Lately I've been intrigued by drawing/painting people's tattoos. There are so many interesting stories in them that say alot about the person.

Browsed for them a week and a half ago, after seeing this drawing. They're really good (Ok, they're awesome :dance:! Very different of what I usually listen to, but still awesome :D).

Indeed, they grew on me...yes, quite different, and I'm not usually a huge screamo fan, but I love the way Kyle's and David's voices combine. (Kyle being the screamo)

Can't wait to see them Sunday :D

Tattoos just take more to concentrate on, as you're drawing.

It's not so hard when you go to their concerts, really.
Most bands like to meet the fans and do signings. And if you're observant, usually you can get to meet them many different ways...just depends on the venue. :D
I imagine it's hard in Malta as not as many bands come to play? Though what band wouldn't want to go there...it looks so beautiful and warm :)

The major concert here is the Isle of Mtv. Though we get Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias, Maroon 5(Idon'tmindthem:D) Metro Station...This year we got Kelis, Kid Rock, Scissor Sisters...And David Guetta. Yes we have it that bad.

But actual concerts we get old singers mainly like Elton John and Rod Stewart with expensive tickets. This year I got 2 tickets to see Ronan Keating which was fun! But no Alternative/Rock bands. :c
Oh and how can I forget KISS and Beatles tribute bands? They were good.

Don't let that fool you. Malta's very humid in summer. Nice, relaxed and so hot and humid.

Cynthia-Blair Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
I see how it is...not so bad, but you'd probably like more variety...just think, there is no more Metro Station, so you saw them last. I saw them in, I think 2009. First and last time to see Fall Out Boy, too. :(

It's hot and humid here, too, in the summer. Bad hair days, all. :( but I love Summer anyway :)
