Month: February 2014

Recently Purchased Albums

H2OI’m a huge believer in not stealing music. If you’re a follower of this blog, or you paid any attention to my previous Post Modern Age blog, you might have noticed this, or at least you noticed my talk of albums that I needed to purchase over the next few months. This entry is a little bit of an update on that idea. I made a vow a few months ago to purchase at least one album during each pay cycle, and thus far I’ve lived up to it.

With that in mind, here is a list of some of the albums I’ve purchased over the past months and my thoughts on those albums. Spoiler alert: I love pretty much all of them, and I still have yet to purchase Florence + The Machine’s Lungs. I have a feeling like that album will elude me for quite some time.

WWE Network: Thoughts and Such

WWE Network

The WWE Network is a pseudo-revolutionary concept. It’s a hybrid live streaming/On Demand service paid at a monthly rate of $10/month to access essentially all professional wrestling that has aired on television since televised wrestling was a thing. Naturally, I had to try this out, and of course, I have thoughts on this topic.

Weekly #Spotify Playlist (BONUS!) – 2/26/2014 (#morningmix)

wspmorningmixThis morning, I drank a bunch of Strange Brew Coffeehouse Blueberry Cobbler coffee (which you can buy here – it’s delicious, by the way), I put my iPhone on shuffle, then I used Soundtracking to post every song I listened to. It was intense, and I’m sure, annoying to most of my social media followers. Either way, it set me in a great mood, so I decided to document it with another Spotify playlist.

Drink some coffee and enjoy this playlist!

As usual, featured artists are after the jump! (more…)

Weekly #Spotify Playlist – 2/25/2014 (HFCMEGAMIX Edition)

Weekly Spotify PlaylistThis one is going to be a little different. Not so much albums, as much as it’s just songs that I like a lot. This playlist originated with me taking out CDs and putting in other CDs when I was driving last night and today. Party.

Featured artists after the jump!

True Detective: What In The..?

True DetectiveThis isn’t going to be so much a review or anything of that sort, just a piece to help me wrap my brain around the brilliant HBO show True Detective starting Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

First thing’s first, this show on paper is about two detectives that are trying to solve a crime seemingly based on an occult killing. Cool, I’ve seen that episode of Law & Order: SVU plenty of times, so I can probably handle it, right? Wrong. While at first, the show does follow a bit of a police procedural.. procedure.. it quickly takes a nose dive into something completely different.
