A Little Wisdom

July 26, 2010

I have nothing to say today but this –

Much Madness is divinest sense-

To a discerning eye-

Much Sense-the starkest Madness-

‘Tis the majority

In this, as All, prevail-

Assent-and you are sane-

Demur-You’re straightway dangerous-

And handled with a chain-

-Emily Dickinson, 435

Thrashin’

June 19, 2010

My apologies for the lack of posts the last two days – my computer had been confiscated by a certain person, who will remain nameless at this time. Whilst I was gone, iTunes 9.2 was released! For those of you yet to upgrade, here’s a rundown of the changes (that I’ve noticed) –

  1. The bar for Genre/Album/Artist/Composer and the sizing slider has returned! (Thank god…)
  2. You can now apparently not make album artwork minimized. (Boooooo)
  3. The playlist maker is…trickier, in turns of drag and drop. (Boooooooooooo)
  4. A few GUI design changes (Neutral…)

Overall – 9.1 and 9.2 are really about the same; if you feel like upgrading go for it, otherwise, don’t bother.

Here’s Today’s Playlist

  1. Family Reunion by Saliva
  2. Heart-Shaped Glasses by Marilyn Manson
  3. Are We The Waiting by Green Day
  4. Polyamorous by Breaking Benjamin
  5. I Don’t Care by Apocalyptica
  6. Black Masks and Gasoline by Rise Against
  7. Full Circle by Drowning Pool
  8. Helena by My Chemical Romance
  9. Don’t Tread On Me by Metallica
  10. Last Letter by One Day As a Lion

Oh, the Gloom

June 6, 2010

Yes, you guessed it – Seattle is back to its rain and grey skies. In early June. This is pitiful.

On the bright side, I’m thoroughly enjoying my pirated Super Mario Galaxy 2 (almost more so because of how hard it was to get it to work). It’s just a gorgeous game, with innovative gameplay, beautiful levels…I could go on, or you could just go to Metacritic and read a few reviews. And then go buy it. Or pirate it. Or emulate it, if you have a really powerful computer and don’t mind glitches.

Whatever you do, you should check out today’s playlist. It’s metal, ranging from softer stuff like Crime in Stereo (which, honestly, isn’t even real metal, but it’s good music) to heavy-ish stuff like Drowning Pool. I though about throwing in some August Burns Red and other death metal-esque stuff, but I can’t really stand most of the stuff, so it would be disingenuous and cruel to ask you to listen to it.

  1. Drugwolf by Crime in Stereo
  2. Criminal by After Midnight Project
  3. Million Miles by Papercut Massacre
  4. This is How I Disappear by My Chemical Romance
  5. Breakdown by Seether
  6. New Dark Ages by Bad Religion
  7. Erase Replace by The Foo Fighters
  8. Topless by Breaking Benjamin
  9. Blow by Atreyu (feat. Todd Josh)
  10. Enemy by Drowning Pool

Oh, and a last note – After Midnight Project‘s new (and debut) album is just fantastic.
