When I was young, I did what most kids did and liked whatever my parents liked, especially when it came to music. Until I was about 12 years old, I didn’t listen to new music aside from what my parents liked. So aside from Aerosmith and Gloria Estefan, I listened to old school Rock n’ Roll such as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and Rod Stewart as well as some soft rock and pop acts like Cat Stevens, Carly Simon, and Elton John. This type of music remains my favorite kind of music but I did eventually start listening to more modern music (thanks to VH1) and have grown an affinity for Adult Alternative music, specifically from the 90s.
One of the first CDs I ever bought was The Goo Goo Dolls’ Dizzy Up The Girl. I specifically remember wanting this album so much I decided to get it for my birthday instead of a trip to Disneyland. Side note: I know now that one CD isn’t the same price as a trip to Disneyland and that was kind of a dick move on my mom’s part. Anyways, at the time, I remember not really listening to most of the album and focusing only on the singles, which does consist of a little more than a third of the album, but I remember listening to it more as I got older and liking it more. Now I’m older and have more experience with various genres of music and I thought I would revisit it and see how it holds up today.

Peace. And. Love, Gamers and Players! It’s time for another Gaming Landscape from yours truly, Colorwind. It’s a day late due to Memorial Day. Hope everyone had a good one if you’re from the United States, and if not, then hope you had a good day, and week for that matter, regardless. This past week, I played a whopping fourteen games! Way too many! However, I love games so even 14 isn’t enough! Anyways, enough introducing and lets get into it.

Coldplay will never be the band that made “Yellow” again. I have to accept that. No matter how much I wish they would return to their Radiohead-lite roots and make essentially “A Rush of Blood To The Head Part 2”, the band has moved on. Perhaps it was the trouble behind the recording of “X&Y”, which itself proved to be musically uninspired. Maybe it was the success of the very un-alt rock “Viva La Vida” off of the album of the same name. Whatever the case, I thought the ultimately lukewarm public response to the concept album “Mylo Xyloto” would have been responded with a return to form in the next album. Not so with “Ghost Stories” but things are different. Noticeably different

I like movies but I never watch them. I enjoy watching them as I find myself creatively intrigued by most movies but I never find the time nor the patience to sit down in one place for around two hours. However, I want to see more and broaden my horizons so I’m hoping this new blog series will inspire me to watch more movies. I don’t really have a name for it other than “So I Saw…” so suggestions are welcome. Otherwise, this will be an impressions blog where I just write about my initial impressions of a movie I’ve seen for the first time.

Okay. New day, new happenings! My blog is going to go in a new direction with less of a focus on gaming. I’m going to get started on an album review! Yes, that’s what I’ll do!
Oh. Oh wait.
Nintendo released their sales numbers?
And announced Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire remakes?
And responded to the petition for gay couples in Tomodachi Life?

Last night, I was sitting at my desk, staring at my computer monitor, hoping for some words to come to mind that I would instruct my hands to type out onto the blank document. Eventually some words did come out but I wasn’t fully happy with them. For three years, my focus has been on video games and I cast aside other interests of mine, especially for the past year or two. As I currently have more time for myself now, I feel I shouldn’t be as creatively stunted as I am. Therefore, I’ve decided that my blog, this blog, will become more than it is right now. It’s currently contains nothing but video game content. Reviews, impressions, lets play videos and my weekly article, My Gaming Landscape. Not anymore. Continue reading “The New Order of Things”
Peace and Love, gamers and players. It’s been another week which means it’s time for another installment of My Gaming Landscape. If your new, that means I’m going to talk about the games I’ve been playing this past week. This week’s a bit different as I mostly focused on two games, as well as vainly trying to play several fighting games.
