Colorwind Reviews Comes a Time by Neil Young

NeilYoungalbum-ComesATimeComes a Time is a Neil Young album that rarely comes up in conversation when the artist is discussed. Recorded roughly over the course of two years, during which an album comprised of songs from two cancelled albums was released, this was Young’s first solo album of new songs in two years. It was delayed from it’s initial release date twice, first due to the addition of rhythm sections to the songs and second due to Young’s concerns with the audio quality, resulting in Young buying the first 200,000 LPs of the initial pressing. The album marks Young’s return to the country rock sound that made his album Harvest a big hit. However, Comes a Time does not share the success that Harvest had, as there aren’t any radio hits and only the title track is a fan favorite.

My Gaming Landscape [May 19th, 2015]

I played a lot of games this past month, though I didn’t stick to most of them. So instead of the usual format of separating the games with a title and giving each game a paragraph, I’m just going to write about them in the same paragraphs in a casual conversation.

I’ll still bold the names of the games I’ve been playing so you can see them easily. Also, sorry for no picture. I couldn’t figure out how to cram all these games into one image. Alright, on with the Gaming Landscape!

Discovering ASMR Videos

keep-calm-and-asmrI’ve been looking for ways to relax myself as of late as I’ve been stressed out from taking on more than I could handle. I found YouTube videos on what’s called ASMR. I’m not entirely sure how I came upon them. Part of me thinks I heard them mentioned while watching a Halefail Q&A video and another part of me thought I heard it slightly before that. Either way, I’ve just known about this for about two to three weeks now. ASMR videos are videos that feature someone making various noises quietly, either with their hands, with various objects, and/or by talking softly or whispering, in order to relax the viewer. Usually this results at some point with getting chills down the back of your neck or elsewhere. Visual stimulators are also used to enhance the audio and sometimes, videos will have people roleplay as stylists, hairdressers or doctors.
