Music Thursday

April 15, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · 2 Comments 

Alright, for christmas ‘Chelle got me a new iPod, and I’ve been using the hell out of it. Now I’m also a bit of an old skool’r when it comes to music I guess, not much for singles, if I find a song I like, or an artist, I’ll buy a whole album. Then I’ll often listen to albums at a stretch as well, I might also be spoiled by finding folks that know how to put together a good album, but there’s often songs that I find that are more my speed than the ones that hook me in the first place.
So that said, I’m gonna start putting up my top 5 listened to, or realized I’ve listened to, albums from my iPod every week. Starting here. Feel free to suggest things based on what you see or something you’ve found from these.

So here goes… (in no perceived order)

1. Samantha Shelton – Are You Kidding Around?
2. Pearl & The Beard – “Voice In My Throat”
3. The Killers – Day & Age
4. Black Eyed Peas – The E.N.D. “Out Of My Head”
5. David Guetta – One Love

And now Shakira is creeping in so she might make next week.

Till then!

Music —

The lack of which seems to leave me with no crutch and a handicap. We have different styles that we like more than others, and even some people who say that they just don’t listen to music. Read more

The odd connections of memory

May 21, 2009 · Posted in Rambles · Comment 

Just watched an episode of Lizzie McGuire, in German of course, dubbed in German. But it was your standard plot line ripped right from adolescence. Girl likes Boy, Girl starts seeing Boy, Male Best Friend likes Girl, Girl doesn’t like Male Best Friend back, Boy breaks up with Girl, asks if they can still be friends, Male Best Friend is there to make her smile but not tell Girl how he feels about Her. So anyway, as I said, the plot of a thousand teen-age movies or TV shows at some point or another, and it’s always back because it’s out there, and probably can remember something of the sort happening when you were the age of the actors.

Comics and the like

February 4, 2009 · Posted in Rambles · 1 Comment 

Won’t be a long post, but it’s been far too long not to update.

Been reading a lot of good comics here of late, I’m not going to list them or go into them right now, if you’re interested I’ll let you know.

The important part is that the writing on a good comic is something different than the writing on a good article or short story. Arranging the panels and using dialogue to accent the visual. It’s something that I’ve been interested in for the past few years. I didn’t really read comics as a kid, didn’t start until I was out of college really I think.

Anyway, that’s today’s thought. And the question is, what makes a good story for you?

All’s well that is.

Feeling better now that I was a few hours ago. While going though the grocery store earlier this morning I had a mild panic attack. Throat is still a bit tense, its difficult to swallow, but not as bad as it was. Read more

Okay, not really in the classical sense. We’re not all going to read a book and then discuss it. More along the lines I’m going to tell you about two books that I’ve read recently and what I thought about them. You see in the short term it is far less work for you, and I read them because I wanted to, so there’s no skin off your teeth either. It’s pretty much win-win. Read more
