I dreamt of zombies last night. (And no, I haven't seen any zombie movies since I Am Legend
, which was Christmas last year. Does Cloverfield
or the trailer for Fringe
count?) They wore a thin white film over their faces. The white film either came from their mouths when they changed or they grabbed it from somewhere. I can't remember. And the people around me became zombies rather randomly. It was some unknown trigger, but I don't know what, and that lack of knowledge is freaky. But it wasn't really a nightmare. Sure, it was a little scary, with the chasing and the running and the grabbing, but I wasn't really frightened out of my wits. Everything was just white
. And green. There were trees and water. But not the murky humid kind. It was more of, ethereal. Yeah, zombies with white faces in a fairytale setting. Brain, what's up? two;

fandom. While I'm not one of the pioneer fans, I like to think of myself as one of the earlier ones, before the fandom exploded with a million pre-teens. I got it for my birthday in February last year, and I brought New Moon
a week later. I love the book for the guilty pleasures it offers, the innocence it invokes, and the epic love it represents. Now, maybe it's the hype surrounding RPrattz and KStew, maybe it's the fandom itself, I find Twilight
... ridiculous. I've read the first chapter of Breaking Dawn
, and my first impression was that it's funny. Cheesy-lame funny, not sweet-cute funny. Maybe I've been exposed to the glittery comments on ONTD for too many times. Before this August, I definitely need to shut off from the fandom (and hatedom), curl up with a cup of iced tea, and recapture the magic of Edward Cullen.four;
Rachael Yamagata - Loose Ends EP (2008)
I adore this woman. A lot. I saw her in concert
last year, and she was beyond amazing. She has the uncanny ability to twirl complicated emotions into her raspy voice and exquisite lyrics. I've been looking forward to her new album for ages now. This EP serves as a preview to the new album, which I expect will be a splendid sophomore offering.
And is this me posting an album with every entry? I don't know. Do you want me to? Perhaps as penance for being missing for almost 6 months? There's just a whole bunch of new releases this year that I really want to share. The Submarines, Nada Surf, The National, The Weepies, The Raveonettes, etc. 2008 is a good year for music. I don't even know what my Album of the Year will be.
