Making Spirits Bright

December 13, 2014

Look no further than making a copy of Bastille’s brand new mixtape, or download it yourself off of Itunes right now. Vs, features some amazing collaborators, and grandiose instrumentations that are trademark Bastille through and through. Dan Smith and co. have been on a high since their band exploded on the charts, and ever since I managed to see them live twice this year, I can’t stop talking about them or listening to them for that matter. What a year it must be for them. This mixtape seamlessly blends Hip Hop beats, orchestra sounds, stripped down raw acoustic sounds, computerized blips and clicks like most artists could only dream of. But of course Bastille has had help making this, I mean why else is it referred to as a mixtape as opposed to an album. I absolutely loved early leaked tracks, Torn Apart and Weapon, as well as the hauntingly mellow, The Driver, but now that all nine tracks are available to me, I think mixtape isn’t even a fair description of this. It is definitely a general theme as mournful as Oblivion and as uplifting as Pompeii, and all nine tracks added up together seem like one whole unit. Certainly no Rock Opera, but certainly something unlike any other.

Some Folks…

June 22, 2014

Some people are in it for the money.  Some people have more money than they would ever know what to do with it.  Some people  hate their jobs.  Others love their jobs.  Some love their jobs but hate the pay.  Some people hate their jobs, hate their pay, and hate the way it makes them feel.  I’m in that last camp.  But really I’m not complaining.  I know how it feels to be alive, and that makes all the difference in the world.  I like feeling alive, and the second I walk through those doors, I know myself, I find myself, I am myself.  It’s the only way to be.  A true sense of self is highly sought, but rarely found.  I want a new job.  Yes, I want this new job to pay me well, or better, but I’m not in it for the money.  I’m in it for the sense of accomplishment and the knowledge that I can always do more to better myself, to better the world around me, and to bring more smiles to the frowning faces of the world.  That’s my mission statement….
