Re: “Commentary: 2 Live Crew and promoters that don't suck

The only part about the concept of paying your dues that seems legit is the school of hardknocks style of learning. Very enlightening. Nice to see at least one promoter is a trie professional and not a professional ahole scamwanker. That's one embarrassing thing the music industry has too many of and it shouldnt be that way.

Re: “Commentary: 2 Live Crew and promoters that don't suck

I wish I could have cloned myself to be at both shows last night! Hopefully in the future I can show my love and support for as many local artists as possible without big dates clashing upon each other.

Humble and on point. That's my man, Infinite. Wish I could've been at the show. Shout out to one of the fathers - Gifts Unlimited Rhymes Universal.

Re: “The third annual Gasparilla Music Festival hits downtown Tampa with The Flaming Lips and many others

Check out Under the Willow Sunday at the Higher Grounds Stage (Kiley Gardens) for their last Florida appearance on their southern tour before they head back north to Chicago. They are an exciting "newgrass" string band fronted by two amazing female vocalists!!!! They are such a talented band with a very original sound and fun stage presence.

Re: “Review: Iron & Wine delivers an intoxicating solo set at the Straz Center, Tampa

I was surprised when he didn't have the band, but once he got going I was in such awe of his songwriting. The songs were mesmerizing, maybe even more so stripped down. Plus he was so personable, as you said. I just want to go to his house and hang out while he makes me laugh and plays me beautiful songs. Great show!

Love that he covered "Love Vigilantes." Wish I had gotten to see that.

Re: “Never Take It Off: Merch with meaning from the Simms siblings

i'm a pretty recent fan, but in the short amount of time that i have known them they have inspired me more than i could ever put down in words. And they have saved me in various ways. The NTIO line has so much meaning to it and i love that. I don't own any products from the line, but if i could, i would have all of them. The Bracelets aren't just jewlery, they are a promise. They help many people to go through the hard times in life and it's amazing .

Juliet and tommy are one of the few artists these days who are truly themselves, and they inspire me to be myself too. They really care about their fans, and the NTIO merch is one of the many things that show that.

i've always wanted to be a singer and play at warped tour, but people always put me down saying that that's impossible for me, and at a certain point, i stopped beliving too. Juliet was one (a very important one) of the few artists that made me belive in myself again <3

Re: “Never Take It Off: Merch with meaning from the Simms siblings

I love your line and i love how there are so many promises. In that way it's so much easier to find your true and perfect promise to yourself.

Re: “Never Take It Off: Merch with meaning from the Simms siblings

As my grandmother says to me, " You've had a difficult life, it's never been easy for you. How have you managed?" I've put a smile on my face every day, no matter how I'm feeling inside as somehow it seems to just make things a little easier to get through and it's also those I have been fortunate enough to see make things possible for themselves and others. NTIO is such an incredible company, with amazing people who have taken the time to help others, and to help them make promises to themselves and to believe in themselves, and I am one of them. I thank you guys for everything, your music, your strength to never give up and keep pushing on no matter what. If I hadn't found you I have no idea where I'd be right now. Thank you.

Re: “Never Take It Off: Merch with meaning from the Simms siblings

I don't have one,but think I should get one. I struggle with serious depression and don't want my daughter to struggle the way I have. She is my rock and keeps me moving with her smile and undying love...without her I would be dead. She is a bright,loving, and giving sweet little girl. She is so positive and reminds me everyday that I have a purpose. I have made a multitude of mistakes and have a hard time forgiving myself...I don't want my daughter to hate herself the way I feel like such a failure. I know there is hope out there,but seems so out of reach no matter how hard I try.

Re: “Never Take It Off: Merch with meaning from the Simms siblings

When I first saw NTIO bracelets I immediately wanted one. It took my mom forever to let me get my first one, which happened to be Cross My Heart Hope To Die. She just saw them as a "piece of string", but I saw them as something more. I remember tying it around my wrist and saying my vow(s). The bracelet itself seemed small, but after it was tied on it became much bigger. NTIO bracelets are my equivalent to tattoos. When I tie them on they become apart of me. I have four NTIO bracelets and each one has a special meaning to me. They've become my security blanket . If I lose self-confidence in myself, I look at the bracelets and remember the vows I made. I've tried explaining my connection with NTIO to my friends/family, but they don't understand. They see them as a "piece of string" that will eventually fall off my wrist. I've never thought I'd feel so strongly about 4 bracelets. The impact NTIO has had on me it such a positive one, and I'm forever grateful to Juliet and Tommy and the rest of the NTIO fairies for creating such a beautiful jewelry that has real meaning behind it. Thank you, those tow words may seem so simple, but I mean them with all my heart.

Re: “Never Take It Off: Merch with meaning from the Simms siblings

I purchased the Black Ink Revenge NTIO bracelet at warped tour 2013, and let me just tell you Juliet is SO BEAUTIFUL. Wearing this bracelet upon my wrist reminds me that I am who I am and I shouldn't change my entire persona for people who don't care for me. We're all tied up in knots, just remember to stay strong and true to yourself.

Re: “Never Take It Off: Merch with meaning from the Simms siblings

i always I have one on when I go to a concert. I feel like it captures all of the positive energy. when they wear down and I have to get a new one, I can look back at them and remember which concerts I went to with them on. they're kind of like lucky rocks. I love the idea behind the vows too. it's a great way to remember to keep a promise.

Re: “Never Take It Off: Merch with meaning from the Simms siblings

Aw so many nice comments ^_^ I'm proud to be an A.LL and NTIO fan. I have proudly worn my NTIO bracelets and have been keeping to my vows/hoping for my wishes for the past 2 years almost! I've never had the chance to see Juliet or Tommy as I live in the UK, but I do all that I can to support their music. I have bought NTIO bracelets for friends and have reccommend them to others because they carry such meaning and each one can tell a story. I found an A.LL fan within my own school through a conversation that started about NTIO of they had seen it on my wrist! The lovely people at NTIO have done more than send me my purchases, but I have had a few conversations with Natalie (hi if you get to read this!) who is lovely :) we spoke a few times during Juliet's time on The Voice - I had to keep myself awake until 3:00AM so that I could live stream it here to support Juliet. As I couldn't buy the voice singles outside of the US, NTIO sent me a couple and I really appreciate it! Lovely people, great company, brilliant concept, and in some cases I am sure, life savers. Thank you NTIO!

P.S. happy birthday Juliet!

Re: “Never Take It Off: Merch with meaning from the Simms siblings

I loved this article! The way the collection, NTIO, got started was amazing! I've never been to warped tour but I'm going this year and I'm so exited. All the quotes they used in this article we're amazing. My favorite was "I'm human. I have flaws, faults and insecurities." by Juliet Simms. This has probably been one of the best articles I have read in a while :)
