So, with my girlfriend having moved to Georgia for college, leaving me plenty of free time between her breaks, I've decided to start writing blogs (That don't suck like all my other posts) Okay, lets go.
The fucking Beatles. It was the only music my Dad would let me listen to as a kid, and with Beatles rock Band out and the remastered CD's, I've had more than enough reason to get back into them. I'm gonna mkae a few statements about them and their songs in no particular fashion or order.
Yellow Submarine is the best song ever written. There is nothing that you cannot love about that song. It's simplicity and aloofness and magic far outpace anything else like it. It's a classic that'll be remembered for a very long time, and while it isn't as technical, or even meaningful, it is what it is, and it's better at that than any other song before, or after it.
George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is also incredible, and I think it should be George's claim to immortality. I've heard a lot about him being the least prominent Beatles, which in a lot of ways, is true, but this song proves he was just as much of a genius as John or Paul.
And the origin of it's creation is pretty cool, too.
Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is probably the best intro song of all time.
That's all I can think of, I'm going to go to class now. Thanks for not reading this because nobody is reading this.
Still listening to TDS...So good. It's one of those few albums that is always able to cheer me up a bit...Not that I'm sad right now, but you get the point.
I have a massive headache and my throat is sore and I keep shivering...What the heck is wrong with me? I don't have a fever...What could it possibley be?
Also, aren't I clever by using htat TDS line in the title of the blog post about how I'm shivering? Man, I rule.
My Song of the day today is...
"Merry Christmas Mr. Laurence" by FACT
It's such a sweet song. It has this asian feel to it in the intro, and sounds super hautning and entrancing. It flows wonderfully with the vocals over the grace of elequent piano keys, that lead into the stand crunch of FACT, giving the song the last flair it needs before becoming completley awesome.
Go listen nao?
So on my way back home last night I decided to pick up Futures and Chase This Light again, I lost all my digitals when my harddrive crashed, and any physical JEW CD's I have are long dead. "Night Drive" is still a wonderful song to listen to while, get this, driving at night, especially when alone. "Just Tonight..." still holds up as my favorite song of all time. So good. Aaaand Chase This Light is fun as ever...I love saying "Big Casino" out loud. Like, how fun is that phrase? Very, right?
Now I'm going to be on a huge JEW kick for a while...I think they're recording now/soon/did? Excited...
I remember being the only kid in my class that listened to them when I was a kid. Everyone knew "The Middle" but that was it...I felt special, like they were my special thing that nobody could ruin for me...you know?
Also, Senior prom is friday. Trying to make it a perfect night for my girlfriend...going to fail...I'm not good at this stuff!!
Also also, I wrote a review for FACT, andddd I hope it gets approved...
Also also also, Trigonometry is a whore, and I love procrastinating.
Sooo. Hero of War is the next Rise Against single. I know myself and a bajillion other people wanted Savior to be the next one, but I guess we just have to live with it, hmmm? Besides, it'll be fun to watch that song rise to the top, because face it, it will.
I still see that song as a protest to the war rather than the soldiers themselves. Sure, the soldiers are serving their country, that's great. But look at what our country is making them do. The narrator didn't want to do this. He just wanted to see the world(And even get payed.) so I think the moral is that there is no such thing as a Hero of War. Just medals and scars...
Mind, I come from a military family, and while I firmly believe in protecting my country, I do agree with the horrors of war and how we shouldn't be in this mess in the first place.
I actually thought that title was pretty clever. I just bought the physical albium yesterday...It looks os cool. I got the special edition carboard-y one. I put it up on my mantle because it just looks so badass. Like...the cover art is simply beautiful. Kudos to whoever the artist is...
Great Music too, Born Dead is still my favorite song atm.
A chipwreck in the salsa.
Man I'm hilarious.
