At least we would know that the sparks didn't glow...
At least we would know that the sparks didn't glow...

Just because I don't really want to see the title of yesterday's entry when I look at my blog.

Been busy lately, thus the blogging/posting semi-hiatus from AP. (I get bold-named in a couple weeks though, so I'll probably come back then.)
Anyway, I'm all settled in my new apartment, which is lovely and perfect. I get along with all three of my roomies and the location couldn't be better for what I'm paying, so really I'm set. Haven't started working at Talking House yet, but hopefully that'll get jump-started in the next few weeks. Now all I need is a paying job.
Music-wise I've been head over heels in love with Aim & Ignite - it's literally almost all I've been listening to - such a fantastic album. Nate Ruess has really proved himself as one of my favorite (currently working) lyricists. "The Gambler" nearly brought tears to my eyes, and there's not a track I don't love.
I was also fortunate enough to make it to the Matches' final show at the Fillmore last Sunday, which was incredible and fun and heartbreaking all at once. It finally hit me that I wouldn't be seeing them perform again, but it was a fitting farewell. My parents were there, seeing the guys for the first and last time - they've both seen me obsessing over this band for the past six years or so - so that was great to be able to share with them. I also came home with this:

...which is the prop they used in this AP magazine photo shoot. It's an incredible work of art and I feel entirely privileged to own a piece of Matches history. Bittersweet, but I've come to terms with their breakup/hiatus, and I know the boys won't be going far.

I think that's all for now. Check out the fun. album and the Matches' pseudo-album-four release if you haven't, and, ah...keep it real, kids.
