A little depressed… Feeling quite defeated.

This is why I have been very distant from my blog, just dealing with a bunch of shit basically.

I can always find refuge in the music…

The new Arcade Fire came out today, I have been listening to it non-stop but not from a leaked copy. :-)

Their music grows on me… But on this album I pretty much loved it instantly, the topics the songs touch upon really resonate with how I am feeling at this time in my life. I feel like I have failed at certain dreams I once had, wondering where I actually want to take this life of mine and still figuring out who I am. These are common emotions and doubts and I think Arcade Fire did a wonderful job of conveying them in their music. Highly recommended.

    I think you will like it. :-)

    Thanks Marcy, I will keep you guys posted. Having some health issues (nothing major) just annoying health issues, Kaiser is my insurance and they suck. Thinking of going to a naturalist.

    I love this album and it’s so different from neon bible. I think there’s a giant ++ because I’m a geographer and half the time they’re talking about sprawl and other urban issues.

    Feel more awesome soon!
