Albums that I listened to on my disc man in middle school 1 of 10.

So, I've always been a little behind where other people were at in terms of technology, or at least I was throughout school. So, even though iPods had been out for some time by the time I was in middle school and basically everyone else had one I never did and I didn't get a phone that could stream music until my junior year of high school. Before that I had a disk-man and a carried around a little felt case that held 10 albums ... read more

The Disc-man collection (4 of 10)

WELCOME. TO. AMERI. CANA. FOR. MORE. INFO. ON. WHY. I'M. DOING. THIS. PLEASE. CHECK. OUT. MY. SUBLIME. RE. VIEW.

I was going to start this out by saying that The Offspring was the first punk band that I really fell in love with but whether or not you can call The Offspring punk is at very least up for debate. They certainly aren't the type of punk band that would lead me to more punk rock as I associate them more with the 90s alternative scene than I do with ... read more

I really respect what they were trying to do with this album. The idea of a pop punk musical is vastly appealing to me and the full scale production of this thing with the puppets and everything is pretty cool to watch. However, a lot of the music kind of runs together and the story is hard to follow since by the very nature of the thing a lot of characters come in for one song and are promptly rushed out of the narrative because they only have that guest artist for one song.

Between finally watching this musical, listening to this album that inspired it, and watching Portrait of A Lady On Fire I think i've thought about the story of Orpheus in the past year than I ever have before. Honestly the re-imagining of this ancient tale to a more modern but still pretty old feeling jazzy musical feels so natural that it's hard to imagine this story hasn't always been told like this.

The Disk-Man Collection (3 of 10)

For more information of why I'm doing this check out my Sublime review. Also, I oscillated between two separate introduction paragraphs to this review and I couldn't decide so you get both of them.

I've been kind of dreading doing this one although this is the second time I'm officially reviewing this album. The first time, me and a friend of mine did a podcast where we reviewed every Eminem and Kanye West project. I'm not going to link that podcast here ... read more

I smoked an entire bowl and watched this on youtube at 3am and I'm feeling a type of way so there is no way to maintain any critical distance at the moment. Heathers is one of my favorite movies of all time and I'm a huge mark for off-broadway musicals of movies I like anyway. Heathers is a satirical, black comedy, teen movie masterpiece that's influenced basically every mean girl squad teen movie that's come since, including Mean Girls. I watched it at the right time in my life to really take ... read more

Just wanted to say I appreciate your thoughtful reply to my initial comment on the 6ix9ine review. You make a good point that confederate soldiers are only notable for that specific thing, so we’re directly glorifying them for their negative history rather than praising the good while accepting the bad. I thought the comparison made sense but I can see there’s a bit more nuance to it.
