Better : So many bands that I love have announced new albums that it’s hard for me to keep track. Touché Amoré, Balance and Composure, The Devil Wears Prada, letlive., and Defeater all have albums coming out soon or by the end of the year. Pre-orders are already up for letlive. and Defeater. Not to mention all the great tunes that have already been released this year. There’s been solid releases from The Story So Far, Justin Timberlake and Hundredth, and an insanely good release from Daft Punk (not that the others aren’t good, but this has been a standout for me). The Wonder Years released a new album that I haven’t heard yet, and City and Colour’s new album came out today. Musically, 2013 has been a good year.
And let’s not forget about movies! The Place Beyond The Pines was incredible, Iron Man 3 was cool but that’s about it, After Earth was also cool but kind of disappointing, and I still haven’t seen The Great Gatsby! Only God Forgives is coming out in July, Superman will be out soon, Wolverine’s new movie, PACIFIC RIM (damn it looks intense) and a couple more that I can’t think of right now that have me pretty excited for films this year.
Scary : I’m done with school in 6 weeks. 6 WEEKS! A month and a half and I’ll be moving somewhere (probably Los Angeles) to go on my internship. I have hands on proficiencies, certifications, tests, sessions, and finals to worry about while also planning a big move that could affect the rest of my life. I’m excited, but I’m also worried and stressed. I don’t do worried and stressed well, haha.
Listen to good music guys and girls. And go watch some films that are original and engage your emotions. It’s good for you.
