another mighty return of ‘five things.’ [8.4.09]

I know, I know, the blog has been really short on writing of late. Well, that’s a trend that is going to continue today. I’ve missed the old ‘five things’ posts, but haven’t had time or energy to write them. So, I’m going to compromise, I’m return to five things, but without the normal amount of writing. I’ll share with you what I’ve been enjoying lately, but with very little explanation. However, I’ll make up for it with pictures and videos. Plus, since I’ve gone so long without it I’ll try to do it more than once a week.

1. Regina Spektor – Far

Regina is back up to her beautiful old tricks again. Lovely.



2. Gears of War 2

Visually stunning, addictively enjoyable, and twistedly satisfying in all the ways a video game should be.

By the way, I love this trailer!


3. True Blood

True Blood

The first season of True Blood was more of a guilty pleasure for me. I wasn’t always wowed by it, especially with the distractingly bad acting by Anna Paquin (sorry Anna), but for whatever reason I always wanted to keep watching.

Season Two is not a guilty pleasure, it’s just a pleasure. It’s painful when an episode ends and I know I need to wait an entire week for another installment. Soooooo good.

In addition, when did Eric become my favorite character? That really snuck up on me.


4. M. Ward

My love affair with the music of M. Ward is nothing new, it’s just been particularly intense of late. He climbs a little higher into the ranks of my favorite artists all the time.

5. Prototype

Yes, another video game. In this one, you’re basically a super anti-hero with unimaginable power that continues to grow throughout the game. I haven’t had time to get very far into the game yet, but so far it is a brutally good time. It even comes complete with zombies. What more could you ask for?


A brief caution, the following cinematic is for mature audiences only. Just thought I’d give the heads up.
