So I’ve posted about Lovett before. In his continuing project for making a video for each of his songs, here’s his award winning short film based off Ghost of Old Highways.
O Fortuna misheard lyrics
So, I’m at an odd place in life, at least for me. I have one year of college left. Soon real life happens, and I leave the sheltered box I’ve been in. I’m more looking forward to it than anything. Partly to be done with the bullshit that goes on in my school. I know a lot of that will be outside of my box as well, but when I leave, I’ll have a little more power to avoid it. At the same time, I’m nervous that the sudden push into the real world may overwhelm me.
I just bagged an internship that will last until the next semester starts. This will be my first (mostly) professional job. It’s web development of a sort in a language I’m unfamiliar with. I honestly can’t wait to dive into that. Also, the reason I say “mostly professional” is that the product will have to be professional, but the people who work there are incredibly relaxed. Attire is T-shirt and jeans. During my interview they gave me a bogus programming question that I actually started to answer. They promptly stopped me and said, “You know we’re just fucking with you, right?” I’m excited to be working there. I just hope that this learning experience won’t be too much for me.
There’s a girl I’m going to ask out, but she’s in Washington until school starts up again. It’s not so much the fear of asking her out. I am nervous about that, but it’s nowhere the crippling fear I had in high school in situations like this. What’s tough right now is that the whole situation is in limbo. I don’t want to wait. I just want a yes or no, and stuff like this is hard to get off your mind.
I’m gearing up for that web comic I may have mentioned a few times. I’m trying to draw some rough sketch stuffs while I save up for a basic tablet. I’m not near the ability I feel comfortable being at. I know that I will improve with time, but I’m worried about putting something I’ve made out where everyone can see it. I’m also worried that I won’t be able to keep up with it when school starts, especially if the aforementioned girl says yes.
There’s a lot going on. All I can do is try to keep up and hope for the best.
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it is gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where fear has gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Diablo Swing Orchestra - Guerilla Laments
So the new Diablo Swing Orchestra album is a certain level of fantastic. This level of fantastic can only be achieved by sacrificing the entrails of 10,000 Bieber fans to the Pantheon of Musicianship.

Bobby Womack - Deep River
Sadly, I admit I have only learned about Bobby Womack through his collaboration with the Gorillaz. Regardless, this is fantastic. I think there are far more fantastic voices out there, but I don’t often hear the same level of emotion in a singer. There’s so much in clips I’ve heard of the album. I watched this making of documentary and read this article, and I was blown away with his focus on emotion, storytelling, and simply making music. I look forward to getting this new album soon.
Have another track.
