Since I’ve started my blog, I’ve been relatively quiet on the commenting front. So far I’ve only independently posted and responded to other comments on my page. Today marks my branching out. I commented on three blogs today:
1. It’s All Dead – I follow and dig this online music magazine because they tend to post about bands/artists within a vein I’m familiar with. They recently posted the newest Against Me! music video for their single “Black Me Out” off Transgender Dysphoria Blues. The album’s pretty solid. I haven’t listened to it in awhile, but may revisit it soon after watching the video.
The first (and only) time I saw Against Me! live was September 2005 at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford when they opened for Green Day on their American Idiot tour. I saw Jimmy Eat World that night too. Laura Jane Grace was still Tom Gabel at that point but regardless, as a bright-eyed 14-year-old I just remember being swept by the music. That was my first legit concert too. I was in the pit…It was one of the best nights of my life.
2. All Things Science – Sapeck Agrawal wrote a nice writeup on the new Cosmos series with Neil deGrasse Tyson (It’s on again tonight at 9, by the way!) and I just had to comment on it. I’m just so stoked science is making its way back to the mainstream again. It’s been awhile since it’s been in the spotlight. Positive pop culture like this tends to inspire and encourage young minds with their future pursuits – and how awesome is that?
3. Creative Database – This blog found and posted a HILARIOUS video of puppets describing Joseph Campbell’s monomyth. I LOL’d so hard! It’s absolutely genius. In fact, I’m going to leave it here for you all to watch. It is informative, yet absolutely priceless. Get into Joseph Campbell, my friends! You will not regret it 🙂
