There's a lot of bands out there and I guess I have a lot of favorites that I've followed through the years. I guess we all do. Some bands are different though, they hold a different spot in my heart. These bands in one way or another changed how I perceive the world and how I choose to act in it. The lyrics somehow make perfect sense, they're the words you couldn't seem to find but always felt. Have Heart is one of those bands for me.
On October 17th, in Boston, Mass., Have Heart will play their last show ever. I can't think of many other bands I would travel to see but I'll be there to see them one last time. I never saw a singer give so much of himself on stage, its so personal and special and so worth one last time.
If you don't know this band, or do and never gave em a good listen, try em out. Their debut album, "The Things We Carry" is some of the most powerful stuff I've heard in a long while. Those songs are like chicken soup for my soul.
i'll hold on to the last thread
i still believe in what was said
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
