so, how are you people doing out there??? have things gone well for you, or are there some struggles happening??? i most surely hope nothing is wrong. if there is, please know that i understand and if you need someone to talk to, please do that. uh, i’m not a counselor or doctor of any sort, so problem solving like that isn’t my specialty. still, if it means much to you, go ahead and mention something on here. like, if any of my tripe is connecting with you in some way, feel free to express what’s on your mind. if the music, or time period is relevant, let me know. i enjoy reading people’s stories, or thoughts on things like nostalgia and music, which frankly, is the majority of this blog. i know that somewhere, deep down, you are feeling emotions possibly and that is good. the freedom of expression is one of the greatest gifts so use it wisely. write something because writing is good. start your own blog if need be, and see how much you can do with it. if you can keep up a routine of writing once a day or so, then it will become a habit and writing is always a good one to have!!! (smoking and drinking are not…)
oh, by the way, i had another review posted on punknews.org. it's for the album, Around the Fur, by the Deftones of course!!! follow this link if you are the slightest bit interested... http://www.punknews.org/review/9668
in awesome news, it has come to my attention that a band i like has gotten back together. they are in the midst of planning future shows and hopefully new music, so let’s give a round of applause for, Boy Sets Fire.
boy sets fire was/are a post-hardcore/emo band from newark, delaware that formed back in 1994 and originally broke up in 2007. their recent 2010 reunion has sparked some interest in them for me, so i guess it’s perfect timing for them to get their due.
the band has a distinct style that was bogus during the 90’s hardcore scene. this style was a mixed bag of emotion and political approach. not that other bands weren’t doing the same thing, (Grade, Poison the Well, Thursday ect…) but it’s just that boy sets fire stood out well amongst the bunch. and so, as it comes down to most bands these days, there came the crossroads, and with that the decision to break the band up. members went on to form groups like, The Young Lady and The Casting Out, which are still sort of together I think. but now it is 2010 and the great news that boy sets fire is once again lit. i might actually have my chance to see them perform, that is if they happen to be anywhere near oklahoma…aaaaaaaaannnnnnndddd for the tunes you will find pretty much their entire discography minus a few splits and other odds and ends i think. for the first prize we have their seven inch titled, Consider. after that is their first ep, with a very emo esque title called, This Crying, This Screaming, My Voice is Being Born. and then we arrive to their debut full length called, The Day the Sun Went Out. that’s some good stuff right there!!! after that is the ep, In Chrysalis, then the epic full length, After the Eulogy. next we have a pair of ep’s called, Suckerpunch Training and Live for Today. next in line is their major label debut, Tomorrow Come Today. this was a bit of a set back in many fans opinions, but hey, opinions are like girlfriends and boyfriends, most people got them, but they aren’t much to care about if you aren’t a worthy person to have that sort of thing anyway… aaaaannnnnddddd so we come to the album, Before the Eulogy, which is a collection of early material and rarities, and then their final full length, The Misery Index: Notes From the Plague Years. that’s it good buddies. try these out if you are into anything that sounds like music and not a toilet flushing, which is what almost everything else sounds like…
medal of honor coming soon for ps3...
