Blacking out the Friction

Winter time holds so many things, great things. Sleeping in while it snows outside, hot chocolate, and more then the rest of the year, music.

There is something about the winter, and especially light flurries at night that make me enjoy music so so much.

You know how curtain albums and bands remind you of curtain seasons, month, or events in life? Well most of my music memories are during winter time. So, for all few of you the follow me, and the even fewer that will read this, here is one of the songs that most illustrates what i'm talking about, I get goosebumps even thinking about it.

Ghost of Halloween future

My dream for this Haloween was to be one of the kick ass kobra kai seleton ninjas from the first Karate Kid movie. It doesn't look like I will get that chance this year, but it give me a year to get all the pieces together as well as grow some nice Johnny Lawerence style hair. The hair might be the part i'm most excited about.
The coming 2011 might be the best year in history. Partly for the hair, partly for the one piece skelton tights.

Ties that Bind

I doubt that it's just me that can't stand to look at people wearing shirts and ties at unnessesary times. This is not a rant, just an observation of something I think is dumb.

Lets pose two examples of guys who try to hard to look nice: 1) The guy who wares his sunday's to school. I think some people do it because of work. That is legitament. Whoever, on the other hand, I think there are others that do it to make people think they are important and have a cool job. I remember one kid, went by the name Bolter (as if he was lightning fast). Bolter often time wore a tie to class with a pastel blue or metalic red shirt. I guess I just figured it was for work. I later saw his place of employment; J.C.W's burger place in American Fork.

2) The other night I was at Tepankaki. I sat at a table with 8 people total. There was a kid on a date with a girl who looked too young for him (honestly 14 years old). She was dressed in casual street cloths, He in another one of those rediculously colored blue shirt and a tie of a slightly darker shade of blue. Why was he so dressed up when she wasn't? they had not been at the symphony or anywhere else of class? He just wanted to make a good impression I guess, but I honestly thought 'what a tool'.

So I guess what I'm getting at, if you wear a shirt and tie for no good reason, chances are I'm going to hate you!

I don't know about anyone else, but I go through cycles with music. I totally have a new muse every couple weeks or so. Last Month it was the New Arcade Fire album 'The Suburbs', and for the better part of the past year it has been Dr. Dog.

This week I found something that has been under my nose for years. M. Ward! So it's been 4 years sense I got it, and I have dappled and liked it for that long. I have always thought it was much better then his duet with Zoey Deschanel, She and Him, but recently I have converted those thoughts into knowledge. So the first Muse of my 26th year is M. Ward, particularly the album Post War and the Song 'Chinese Translation'
