The sisterly electronic duo Krewella just simultaneously released a song and video titled, ‘Alibi’. This marks the 5th song they’ve released since dropping their EP New World Pt. 1 in late 2017, which means Pt. 2 must be just around the corner! Krewella’s New World Tour appears to be drawing to an end. The new video is mostly comprised of tour footage with scenes of the sisters rapping and singing in various urban settings.
I just finished reading Ready Player One for the third time (first read-through was in 2013) and figured it was about time to review the damn thing. The impending release of the movie adaptation on March 29th is also a good reason to formally extract my thoughts. I think it says enough that I’ve even read this book so many times, but for this most recent read-through I tried to be more critical of it rather than enjoy it for the crazy, fun ride that it is. I won’t spend too much time explaining what the book is actually about. This review assumes you are at the least familiar with the fact that this is a sci-fi book about virtual reality (VR), the 1980’s, and takes place in the year 2045. There ya go, I summarized it for you.
Everyone’s favorite Marshmello just released a new video for the posthumously released song ‘Spotlight’ featuring the recently deceased Lil Peep. The video is practically a direct translation of the song’s lyrics which describe bitter feelings of jealously, resentment and nostalgia after a relationship has ended. It also acts as a tribute to Lil Peep and features symbolism strewn throughout the scenes.
The up-and-coming English Indie-rock band Pale Waves has just released their 5th music video in a single year; this one is for their track titled, ‘The Tide’. The new video takes a slightly different approach than the others by being the only one to feature footage from live shows and miscellaneous tour moments.
I chose to read 25 books for my Goodreads Reading Challenge of 2017 but ended up reading 36! I’m proud of myself. Pretty sure that is the most I’ve read in a year. I plan on upping my goal to 40 for 2018. Soon I want to be able to read 52 books in a year, which is a book a week. Before creating my 2018 challenge though I want to commemorate my favorite books that I read in 2017.
