Junior (holding dog) let us stay at his mother’s house in Belgium. Watched London’s version of Jersey Shore, walked to France to get a burger and waffles and played with Barbie the wiener dog.

In Belgium they think it’s cool to turn off all of the lights during a concert.

One of the most speechless/disturbing/sad moments in my life was visiting a concentration camp. The specific one we visited was for military prisoners. The photo above were the actual ovens used to cremate people after they had been in the gas chambers. 3 to 4 bodies were placed in each oven. Unreal.

Light Years – World Burns Out

Downpour Creative recently filmed a live concert video for Light Years at Now That’s Class. Check it out below!

*A HUGE thank you to Dane for his assistance in filming this video. While most of his footage was unusable (not Dane’s fault, the cameras fault) he put more work into this video than I have ever put into a video. Yeah, he’s the guy in the crowd getting smashed by stage divers. I think by the end of the shoot he was bleeding from his forehead. Dane, thank you. You are the toughest man I know.

Dustin warming up before the show. Sound checks are like… 7 hours before the show. Way different from the normal American shows. You know, where the bands all show up a half hour late.
