Switchfoot's Jon Foreman Loves Ice Cream!

That's right. A blogger's friend caught site of Jon buying ice cream before the show in Ocean City. hahaa.


Ok, that's the random food reference of the day. On to some real Switchfoot news.

Broadcast news room did a story with Brandon Dickerson, the genius behind the "Awakening" "papermation" video and the new "This Is Home" video.

"Music videos for feature films have the challenge of merging two forms of pop culture " music and film " with a third art form, the video "says dickerson. "This is an instance where each part is enhanced and complements each other to create a new whole. Everyone is thrilled at the result. "
dickerson, a fan of shooting on film, chose to shoot this video using the RED ONE camera, due to the projects tight turn-around. By working in the 4k realm there was no delay in the editorial process and visual effects could be immediately integrated.

Annie Reuter from yousingiwrite also submitted a review of the Piscataway, NJ show to You R Here: MTV news.

It’s hard to tell the crowd favorite, as everyone surrounding me was singing along to each song word for word. The audience was diverse, made up of college students as well as parents with young children and other New Jersey natives. While some songs featured in their set didn’t stray too much from their album, others found new life onstage, such as “Gone” which was prefaced with a cover of BeyoncĂ©’s “Crazy in Love” in which Jon said to the crowd, “I can safely say this is the only BeyoncĂ© cover we’re going to do all night.” After a few bars of the song, Switchfoot went into “Gone,” where Jon’s singing took a pause to an almost rap-like number as he spoke the words to most of the song, jumping on and off the drum kit a few times.

Check out the rest of the very detailed review!
