Took me A LONG TIME.

It was not until August of 2002 when Ordinary Day was in its prime that I decided that this VC chick might not be all that bad.

soo I loved OD..

then maybe a month later went back to ATM and was like.. okay this isn't bad! what was I thinking?

I was very skeptical when I first heard of VC though.. my sisters were all over ATM and liked the video..a nd I was like it's not so great.

Believe it or not after I heard that melody for ATM for the third time (it repeats in the song) on LAUNCH, I was like, "Oh my god this is different."  Embarrasing enough I was squinting trying to see what this cute girl looked like as the quality was horrible before I actaully noticed the melody.  But once I noticed the motif I had to play it over again several times because it showed musical talent and I was suprized by it.

I hadn't been around computers very much for 10 years but this was the first time I ever actaully searched for more information on the web or otherwise about an artist.  After I did a search on a search engine I found the OB.

I saw the beginning of the ATM video and when she walked to the piano and sat down I was hooked..............

The first time I heard ATM on the radio. And it was usually late at night driving home from work. It was different. It was actually good. Good music on the radio. Wow, that was rare.
Then after the single with 'twilight' I was hook.
But I won't lie, It took me a while to really like BNN. And it took me a year later to see the face on the CD. lol. :)

Took me a while, it wasn't until I got the album that I really started loving her.
