Thursday Thirteen: Autumn


Ahh, autumn. She’s arrived, in all of her colorful glory and gale-force winds. Not to mention crisp air and clear, cold nights that make hot chocolate taste that much better.

Other things to love about autumn:
1. The boys in the bands don’t swelter in their leather jackets.
2. Some of them put their summer-weight denim vests over their leathers altogether.
3. They don’t look dorky for wearing jeans All. The. Time.
4. Mitchell begins insisting the band be booked in hotels with indoor pools. As the band gets more popular and able to afford these hotels anyway, he has to switch gears and demand outdoor pools during the warmer months.
5. The guys don’t swelter under their long hair.
6. There’s always one night when one of the ShapeShifter guys says, “Remember the night we played that bonfire in the woods?”
7. Since it rarely snows in Riverview, autumn means that snow’s coming. Which means the boys will have a snowball fight or two.
8. Or ten.
9. Autumn is when the invitations to the summer festivals begin rolling in.
10. Every now and then, the promoter will serve chili or stew for dinner.
11. Halloween and its costumes.
12. Halloween and its candy.
13. And one thing not to love — a lot of the girls cover up those gorgeous, long legs for the season

    Sounds nice. We thought autumn might be coming here, but we were wrong. It’s still summer. 🙁

    I just finished Demo Tapes, so I feel so much more familiar with the guys now. I can’t wait to get the others!

    Good 13. It rarely snows here, either. But unfortunately, autumn doesn’t usually mean snow is coming for us :/

    I agree with a couple other comments. Guys can and should wear jeans all year long.

    I love autumn.

    Autumn is my favorite season. And I wear jeans as often as possible. Perhaps I should pair said jeans with a Shapeshifter tour shirt. Hmmmm…
