Last night I randomly decided to go see Dave Mathews and Timmy Reynolds. It was an amazing show, and Dave was really messed up! He must have talked to us for 30 minutes of his 240 minute set. He was drinking beer on stage, and it was certainly good times.
This weekend is formal in Cincinnati, it's really just an excuse to go hang out in another town and drink, but we are going to see the Cubs/Reds game so it should be really cool. It's our last big "brotherly" sha-bang of the year. It cost me way too much money and I am now very broke!
The new Radiohead album leaked onto the Internet 2 days ago. It doesn't come out till June 15th! It's an incredible album. It has alot of depth and variety to it. 2 + 2 = 5 is a must download from the album entitled "Hail To The Thief" I'll let you draw your own ideas as to what that means. :-)
My Mythological Criticism paper has led me to rethink how I view the Star Wars Saga. It is BRILLIANT how it all ties together. If you watch Episode II five times ina row like I did for the paper then you start to see things and make connections. The Anakin character is one of the best envisioned characters of all time in my opinion. It's a huge contradiction, or mobius loop if you will. He is Love, and he is Hate. He is joy, and he is suffering. His destiny is certain, but the path is not. . . . or is it. I know where he is towards the end of the film. Yoda all to well gave his progression into darkness in Episode I believe it or not in his famous line. “Pain leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.” When Anakin loses his mom Yoda immediately senses "Great Pain", and his Pain fascilitates into anger very quickly. His emotions always get the best of him. He is extremely arrogant in Episode II. It takes his love of another, (be it is mother, or Senator Amidala) to create his hate) The only key to creating anger in him is by killing the people he loves. I think maybe in Episode III we may find that Darth Sideous planned the kidnapping of his mom to start to bring Anakin to his side. Darth Sideous/Palpatine has everything very very well planned out. He creates a clone army very very very early in his term secretly, to wait for just the right time. He actually has control of both sides of the table be it the droids or the clone army! (That's a war i'd like to be in the seat of....too bad bankers win every war we have today.) Anyways I could draw connections forever but it's really late..or early as it may be. I need to sleep.
I just want to give a shout out to my friends who also have this Case and Kreager. You guys are great. I miss seeing you guys. I look forward to the next time we all hang out together.
I'm out! Current Mood: tiredCurrent Music: Radiohead - The Gloaming
