Well, I figured it was time to give my poor old neglected blog some attention. The past month of so has been pretty busy. All I can say is school, work and my little ones have taken up all my time. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I know that’s a country song but I really have no idea by who.
So I have started back to school and my first class is an Intro to Literature class. It has been really awesome actually, along with reading some cool stuff, I have also been writing. Not just analytical stuff either, some creative writings! A relatively dormant part of my soul has been awakened! Unfortunately this week my prof. made me realize the Zombie state I have fallen into. I’ll have to write more about that tragedy later. Until then I suggest reading Malthusian’s Zombie by Jeffrey Ford. Amazing story! I have a big writing prompt due on Monday, so I’ll be having some fun this weekend for sure!
I have heard in the past one should write and/or study in quiet controlled environments. For me, I find that to just suck. I always have to have music going when I write. It’s like lubrication for my brain. I really have a hard time getting going if I don’t have something that eases my soul playing in the background.
Lately that has been Radiohead. I know big surprise there. I had kind of neglected them for a while, but since the Mansfield show I attended, I have been pretty full throttle with them. Of coarse anytime Radiohead tours I tend to listen to them more since I feel the need to download and listen to every single show I can get. (which is usually all of them!)
I’ve been on a really big live music kick too. I have for quite sometime been big into the live lossless music community. I however tend to ride it in waves. Right now I’m at the peak of one of these waves. Summer is always the best time for concerts anyway, all the festivals and such. It’s been awesome attending these show live from home this year too! It seems everyone is streaming there festivals this year. If you get a chance, I recomend Bon Iver’s Coachella set as well as Radiohead’s and the Civil War’s Bonnaroo sets.
Well, I always say I’m going to do stuff and only do about a tenth of them, but I’ll try to get on and do one post every Thursday or Friday to keep my monster alive. I have loved writing here and really don’t want this thing to die! Wish me luck and encouragement!
