5 AM (A Love Song)
I've been listening to "indie electrionica" as iTunes likes to call it.|
Basically its the kind of music I really like. A few years back I bought the Avalanches CD, and I've been looking into finding more stuff like it (though that was sampling) and I finally found some stuff. I bought the Crystal Castles CD when they played with NiN. Took me awhile to eventually start liking that CD but once I did I got hooked. Course when I talked about it with Kyle and he introduced me to Justice.
Now I am not a big music guy by any means but Justice...their CD called Cross changed my life. Seriously I don't think I'll ever be the same. Listening to the songs does not do it Justice (LOL). You kinda have to start listening to the start of the album and listen to it all the way through which i've done quite a few times now.
Sooo I am starting to branch out to find some other stuff that is similar.
Ended up downloading an EP by Kavinsky called 1986. Fuck its pretty epic as hell. Its similar to Crystal Castles but less Atari 2600 and more Knight Rider. It honestly makes me feel like i'm a bad ass dude in Miami driving around. It also reminds me of playing Chase HQ in the arcades which was one of the best Arcade games by Taito of all time. Its only 5 tracks but you are just totally enthralled by them the entire time.
Dad ended up telling me about Rory Hoy tonight and I ended up buying the album. It reminds me of the Avalanches more then Crystal Castles but its very very good. Just finished listening to the album, it reminds me a bit of a dream sequence in an Anime show. It also reminds me of hues of green and blue when I try to visualize the music. Really really like it.
Anyways........enough about that.
Life in general is kinda up and down right now. I feel like I've kinda lost my ability to feel. I sometimes think I am so desensitized to pretty much everything. Few things excite me lately, other then going to my favorite job. Even jerseys, a prior vice of mine have kinda not been something on my mind. I had a few discussions with some of my friends that didn't go all that well and I'm kinda upset about that still as well. That being said, I'd like to believe that things are going to get better as soon as spring arrives, my moods generally shift with the weather.
Speaking of which, this past week of glorious weather has made me long for spring that much more now that the temperature has dipped back down to around - 30. Yesterday I was not wearing a jacket, shoveling snow in outdoor seasonal at the Home Depot. Today I'm wearing multiple jackets and feeling like my hands are about to fall off even while wearing gloves. Its a really depressing throught to know that spring is at least 2 months away at minimum. Even on my birthday last year it was too cool to be wearing shorts.
Speaking of my birthday, I'm kinda sad that some of my friends are gonna be in Mexico. Oh well.
I'm wondering how I am gonna make my mark on history.
And with that, s my d mother fuckers.
