Just letting you know I’m no longer using this blog. I feel like a change, I guess.
I have started a new one however which you can find here. It’s a bit different. We have a monthly theme and I post a lot of images that bring that to me. Kind of like an aesthetic diary.
But more importantly I’ve started an official blog.
It’s 100% original content. Lot’s of reviews, musings, playlists etc.
So please go check out those links and such.

I miss the old Eminem, actually. I miss the satire and the humour and the genius of Eminem circa 2002. He wasn’t afriad to make fun of himself, he had a black sense of humour running through his songs that I really miss on his newer stuff like Recovery.
Everyone has their own opinion on different artists, but around this time he was so daring and bold around this time that he was unlike any other rapper at the time. Now I feel he’s blended into the crowd.
“Everything dies, baby that’s a fact.
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.”
Up until the age of about 10, my parents used to regularly take me and my brother on six hour car trips through rural Australia to visit my grandmother in Dubbo. When your a hyper-active child, with time on your hands and nothing to do, time seeps by very slowly. I used to spend hour after hour staring out at parched fields and grazing cows and electrical lines. Everytime I hear this album, it reminds me of that feeling. Of time streching out in front of you and having nothing to do with it.
If you ever saw Bruce Springsteen as a somewhat cheesy, all-American singer, listen to this album. He sings about small towns and bar-room fights and young love in a relentlessly bleak but incredibly beautiful way.
“Atlantic City” is a particular highlight. It’s a song about wanting to start fresh, but not quite being able to. It’s beautiful, it’s heartbreaking and you really, really have to listen to it.
