Merry And Bright Part 5: The Gift nobody wants..

December 19, 2014

Okay, so it’s less than a week before Christmas so it’s a bit too late to request this of those who bestow the gifts upon you, but in all fairness, I know what you don’t want for Christmas, unless you do, so stop reading right now. But I feel like a Chia pet is not something you would be happy to get. And maybe it’s selfish to say, “don’t get me this,” but I think this is part of bad gifting 101. Nobody will be happy that you got them a mold farm for Christmas. But sure enough, you would not believe the number of people who have requested daily help in having me point them into the aisle where they are located. Hot seller this year people. Be alert!

Latest Car Jams

March 19, 2013

Django Unchained Soundtrack- The movie was great, but the music really took it to the next level, the way a really epic soundtrack should. It’s great driving music.

Pulp Fiction Soundtrack- As evidenced in what I just said above, Tarantino’s films are made all the more enjoyable by their amazing soundtracks. Dispersed throughout are little sound clips of the film that make the soundtrack experience that much more connected to the film.

David Bowie- The Next Day: His first album in ten years, it has all the weird motifs and indecipherable lyrics you come to expect from Bowie, as well as amazing instrumentations, and a unique blend of all kinds of styles and genres. Also find a lot more themes connecting to his growing older. What you find is a more mature Bowie, with just as much flare and outlandish behavior as usual.

The Path of Newness

March 11, 2013

So this past week I did get to try new things as I said I would be trying to do more frequentlly. I finished reading Huey P. Newton’s amazing autobiography, “Revolutionary Suicide,” following in the wake of my re-reading Malcolm X. It’s a logical progression seeing how Newton and Bobby Seale were very influenced by many of Malcolm’s ideas when forming the Black Panthers.
I started reading a new book, “SEED,” by Bob Zeigler, an interesting Scifi book that I don’t know what to make of. I also started playing and within a couple days, beat the game, Lollipop Chainsaw, from the messed up mind of Game creator Suda 51, maker of No More Heroes. He’s like the Japanese video game designer answer to Tarantino. It’s a game laced with over the top zombie mayhem and an equal dose of hilarity and strangeness. Music wise, I am .getting more into bands that were around in my lifetime but that I missed in their heyday, like Sunny Day Real Estate.

And finally, on the food front, I am trying to get as little meat into my diet as possibly and so far it’s actually working out okay with me still fitting in required nutrients that don’t only come from meat. Tofu salad, yum! And I’m branching out into the land of fish, but need help figuring out what I might like, or what would be better to eat to ease my taste palate into the game as it were.
