The summer usually holds a bevy of books for me as I move from the franticness of school to more relaxing reading. So far this summer, I have read The Hunger Games Trilogy and the last Sookie Stackhouse Book, but now I’m working through Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan ‘s The Strain, which is interesting to say the least. I’ll keep you all posted, but right now, it reads to me like a modernized Dracula-esque novel… I can’t wait to finish this one and launch into the remainder of their Trilogy.
So I performed with the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra last night at the Music of Queen… It was epic. And this is Queen… Bask in its glory.
So I’m writing this post while waiting to give blood. While I do this because the need is always there, sometimes I secretly hope that they’ll find something weird in my blood… Something super hero-y… Though I know his will probably never happen (a fanboy can dream), it’s a good motivator.
I am an avid video gamer and sometimes find music from playing these games. This song from The Heavy is one of those really great rare gems that integrates well into the opening of “Borderlands 2″. With an odd mix of indie, R & B, a touch of folk music, and a few other genres, the song works quite well. I recommend it strongly.
As the Mayan calendar draws to a close, I am reminded of the many apocalypses that were supposed to have taken place over the past many years (I mean think of the one a couple of years ago… Yeah…). While we wait with bated breath about the end (because we all know that the 21st is going to have to come in the western world for us to call it), I give you REM’s view of the end in their song “It’s the End of the World as We Know It.” Enjoy.
