A not so daily record of the soundtrack to my life.

New Blog: Neon Hero

So I created a new blog. It won’t be as music focused as this one was, but I’ll probably still do Random Tuesdays. For the most part it will just be other interesting things I feel like posting. Check it out to see what I mean. Thanks to all of you who visited this blog over these last six months :)


Expansion?

So yeah, I’m thinking about expanding this blog to include other things BESIDES music. Like, movies, art, humour, video games, etc. I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while because I don’t think I post on a frequent enough basis with this blog, so having more things to blog about would increase my output.

My average hits per day has been steadily declining as well. I get around 100 views per day now, and only have 26 people who’ve subscribed to the blog updates. I want to thank those amazing guys and gals for taking the time to visit this blog.

I’m not sure if I’ll just ditch this blog and start the new one, or try to transfer all these posts over (which would take  forever). If you’ve got any advice, hit me up using the contact buttons over in the sidebar :)

Here’s some cool music videos, so this post won’t be completely useless.

BASEMENT JAXX – “FEELINGS GONE (FEAT. SAM SPARRO)

THE TEMPER TRAP – “SCIENCE OF FEAR”

PATO POOH – “FOLLOW ME”

ANIMAL COLLECTIVE – “MY GIRLS”


Random Tuesdays! Vol. 5

Sorry about the lack of new posts lately. I guess I’ve been enjoying my summer a little tooo much!I hope you guys have as well :P

In any case, here are some random favorites for this week.

ROBERT FRANCIS – “JUNEBUG”                         Genre: Alternative

“I remember everything. That was love I could not keep. You were beautiful then. I’m still in too deep.”

WAITING FOR EVANGELINE – “SYSTEM MALFUNCTION”                         Genre:Rock

“To make a change, you’ve got to raise your voice sometimes.”

“I want another day with you.”

LOST – The Music Behind The Mystery

So yeah, I’m a huge Lost fan.

HUGE!

OMFG!!! LOST IS LIKE, THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER IN THE HISTORY OF AMAZING THINGSS!!!

(waits for you to leave this page…)

Sorry about that.

Anyway, on to serious business. I won’t bore you to tears going into details about my inner anguish at the fact that the series finale of Lost is tonight. Instead I’ll share with you just one of the many reasons why this show is so dear to me: The soundtrack.

Mmmm…absurdity, it’s delicious to my ears ;)

The mastermind behind the haunting and beautiful music of Lost is composer Michael Giacchino.

I’m not very good at providing flowery descriptions of songs or anything. I like to let music speak for itself. In this case, there’s a whole lot of it. Over the years, the music of Lost has been released as a series of soundtrack albums, with each album corresponding to a season of the show. Now, instead of posting a bunch of videos or music players for each song I like, I went ahead and put my favorite of these soundtrack albums (Season 3) into one playlist, along with my personal Lost favorite, “Life and Death”, at the end.

So go ahead! Listen to as little, or as much, as you want to.

WATCH the series finale of LOST tonight at 9pm EST on ABC!!!

Thank you :]

“No, we can’t shake this. There’s something else.”

SUPERBIEN – STEP INTO THE SENSORY BOX                         Genre: Ambient

U-N-I – LAND OF THE KINGS                         Genre: Hip Hop

Summer: It Is Upon Us!

Okay, so maybe I’m a little early, but I’m in full summer mode now that finals are over and school is out. So I’ve been searching far and wide (kinda) to find some cool songs to blast obnoxiously (not really) out of my car stereo on my way to the beach this summer. Here are some early favorites.

PASSION PIT – SLEEPYHEAD

FRENCH HORN REBELLION – BEACHES AND FRIENDS (HEY CHAMP REMIX)

CHILDISH GAMBINO – BITCH, LOOK AT ME NOW

If this track sounds familiar, it’s because he samples the song “Two Weeks” by Grizzly Bear.

PHOENIX – LASSO (TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB REMIX)

FOALS – THIS ORIENT

Hopefully this will be a good summer for music. Leave me suggestions!
