So, maybe if I schedule this post I will actually remember it for once… I’m so terrible. Just go ahead and punch me.

Anyway, I bought the new LP CD the other day. I am totally in love with it. Their last CD can’t compare. This one is my favorite, even if they have changed.

Yes, you’re being spammed.

That last one makes me cry.

For the song I’m currently addicted to, give a listen. This type of music is so great for brainstorming sessions. Struggling with KoB, I can just close my eyes, listen, and let my characters speak.

I stumbled across this song just today, and I’m hooked. Ignore the video, just listen. Oh, I love it.

I know I’ve been skipping this a lot lately… I just forget about it when I have so much schoolwork to do. Well, I was just introduced to this band, and I’m now convinced that every band needs a pipe organ. I usually don’t like live versions of songs, but you miss out on some of the awesome otherwise. They use some interesting instruments in some of their songs, and they use vocals quite heavily for more than just lyrics. They are amazing.To make up for my lack of posting, I’m going to video bomb you all. Enjoy!

 

Andandandandthenthenandthen – they did a song for The Hunger Games soundtrack!

Soundtrack Sunday and The Hunger Games!!

I saw a movie the day it came out for only the second time in my life, and it was, of course, The Hunger Games.

The friend that I went with was not really a fan to begin with, never having read the books. She didn’t realize how popular it was until we got to the theater and the next two shows were sold out – and it was playing every half hour. She is one of those serious Harry Potter fans, so I tried to explain the popularity this way: “You know how people obsess over Harry Potter because it’s so good? I don’t like comparing things to Harry Potter, but the fandom is kinda like that.”

I’m still not sure she realized it until we ended up forced to sit in the front row of the crowded theater. Yeah, that wasn’t fun. I ended up with a headache, and it was extremely disorienting the way the action scenes were filmed, when you’re watching at that angle.

But the movie was amazing. It’s one of the rare cases when I can confidently say that the book and the movie were about equal in amazingness. Rarely do you get that. My only problem was that you didn’t get the full effect of the fact that Peeta is actually in love with Katniss and that she is just putting on a show. That’s the only thing they could have done better. I also admit that I cried when Rue died. I rarely cry over movies.

So, now my friend wants to borrow the book. Mission accomplished!

And I plan to watch it again in a week or two. When I can get a better seat!

Delayed, as usual. I lost track of time while trying to write more of King of Blades today, then I had to go to work, and then I played Skyrim for two hours because it makes me happy. Anyway, here’s a song.

I love this band, can you guess?

This song has been stuck in my head since I discovered this band yesterday. Love it!
