For those of you who felt that Anberlin took a bit of a misstep with New Surrender, fear not. This is a good one. How good of a single is "Impossible"? Man, Stephen sounds good on that track the first time he says, "You're impossible..." He stretches out his vocals further on other songs and it's great. Musicianship is tight; this is major label done right.
Here is the song you should listen to for this post. Reading this blog will not take you longer than listening to this song, and it's a song that's worth listening to. I'll let you know what it is at the end of the post so you don't have any preconceived notions.
It fits my mood
I've been in a bit of a slump lately in terms of AP production (AbsoluteProduction? <- obviously I haven't lost my kick ass sense of humor). I just have been so busy with work. Seriously, I've been working 10-12 hour days for the past three weeks and I'm just tired, you know? When I get home, the last thing that I want to do is sit in front of a computer and do more work. I just want to sleep or lay in bed and do nothing. So, for everyone that has IMed me and gotten no response, no offense or anything. I was probably laying in bed and fell asleep in my work clothes.
I'll be back to my former self sooner than later, as I have a ton of stuff to catch up on and I can't leave all the nighttime news posting on Joe.
In love life news, I'm thinking that I may have a new girlfriend soon. You see, time spent not at work has pretty much been devoted to progressing things with that, and I couldn't be happier. I'm actually going out and being social in order to spend time with her and if that's not a sign that I'm really interested in her, I don't know what is. So we'll see where that goes. The only potential snag in that plan is that I'm moving on May 1 and I'll be about an hour and 15 minutes from her. I don't know why I can never have a non-long-distance relationship.
I'll be moving to Newtown, PA on May 1 with my college roommate and bffl Doug. We've been friends since 7th grade so we already know what to expect from each other and it should be good. It's going to suck being on my own for food but I think I'll be fine. Worst case scenario, I lose a bit of weight.
I'm watching the Anberlin chat now and am enjoying it. Christian looked pretty lost in it (Acceptance reunion?) and the echo was pretty bad, but the chat has been enjoyable so far. Stephen seems like such a friendly guy, and he has a lip tattoo that says "rawr". That's pretty punk rock. Haha.
Fan: When is Acceptance going to play one last show at _______?
Christian: Uh...I don't know but I know Anberlin will be there!
Stephen: IN YOUR FACE! We stole him fair and square!
I basically want to say that I'll be back to full-time activities soon, with blog posting and stuff and news posting and features writing and chat making and idea thinking soon. Sorry for being invisible for a bit. I miss you all.
I leave you with my new desktop wallpaper. Feel free to use it.
The song above was The Reign of Kindo's "Hard to Believe". They have their debut album coming out later this year, so be excited.
