Well just barely one month in to 2012, I have finished my Best and Worst List. This list has nearly caused my death. So enjoy it.
Age of Adz
Age of Adz is an album by apocalyptic indie/folk/pop artist Sufjan Stevens (rhymes with poof gone) and it is the single best piece of music i have ever heard. It mixes elements of classical, folk, heavy electronica, and indie, creating a truly unique sound. Sufjan Stevens in all of his music tends to play with the form of music, making his songs similar to classical compositions without form as opposed to verse verse chorus verse pop songs. This is especially apparent in his 25 minute (Your read that right) song impossible love which deals with love, self contemplation, death, and living your life to the fullest. Still, about 40 listens in, the booming opening to the title song still takes my breath away.
Recently me and Devin have indulged ourselves in some wonderfully horrible Nic movies, including the Wicker Man, Deadfall, and Vampire’s Kiss soon. His acting is simply so god awful and overdone, it is one of the funniest things to ever exist. While he has made some decent movies, the outrageously bad ones outweigh those, and so i can confidently say that Nicolas Cage is a horrible actor, but should make tons more movies.
So viewer, you may know, but probably don’t, that i watched all of Lost in a week last summer. Yes, hold your applause, i am amazing, but we should be focusing on the show. It has some of the most insane and well done plot developments i’ve seen in tv, and all though it has its low points, they only make it better. (Ex. the Lost drinking game) Watching LOST in a week was one of the highlights of my summers, and god i want to do it again so bad.
Now it would be a shame if i didn’t put in some shameless self promotion here, wouldn’t it. So at number one of my list, is me and Devinsky Curtinsky’s amazing let’s plays. Instead of saying this my self, i’ll let Good Let’s Plays Weekly the REAL magazine describe it for you. “Get Geek’s Earthbound and Skyrim let’s plays are literally the best things that have happened to our lives here at GLPW. We spend all day watching them, and nervously refresh the youtube homepage every day and episode is to be expected. (Of course, due to Youtube’s utter shit uploader they often upload later than what would be hoped.)” So yeah, go watch them and stuff.
Now i’m sure you’ve heard enough about SOPA, but here’s one more post. If SOPA gets passed, it will essentially destroy the water? (meant internet) as we know it. It has been put to sleep for now, but it is not dead. So sign any petitions that come your way, and if you REALLY want to, talk to your local goverment official.
Jack and Jill
This movie, starring Adam Sandler and Adam Sandler, looks to be sheer agony. Out of pure fear, me and Devin have not seen it, but maybe at some point we’ll watch it online. As on critic put it so perfectly, “This is the beginning of the apocalypse.”
What is this: Savage worlds claims to be a universal system. Usable for everything. With this series I plan to look to see if this is the case, and look at some of my favorite characters. Today I’m going to look at Jack from the TV series LOST. This is of course in commemoration of Tim making it through to the end of LOST this week. He’s not there yet, but he only has a few episodes to go.
