These are a few of my latest obsessions:
1. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Hilarious (somewhat crude) show about 4 friends who run the worst bar in Philadelphia. It is reminiscent of Seinfeld only more immature, arrogant, and crass. But it is so funny! Watch it; you'll love it!
2. Criminal Minds: I could never pinpoint when this show was on so when I would catch an episode it was always exciting. I just purchased the first season because I was sick of not knowing what was going on in it when I would watch it. It's about a special team (Behavior Analysis Unit) of profilers in the FBI. The cases are especially dark and insane and the characters are all really smart. Love it.
3. Brand New: Great band. I bought their album "The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me" when it first came out because I had heard of them. I'd never actually heard their music before. Truth be told I liked it but it wasn't my favorite. For some reason, on a trip to Seattle almost two years ago we were listening to this album and I couldn't get enough of it. Now I have it on my iPod and they are amazing. In fact, their music helps me when I write my novel. Their new album "Daisy" is coming out at the end of this month. I am stoked for it!
4. Breaking Benjamin: I've really, really loved Phobia (BB's last release). There were some bad reviews on it because of the darker sound and such, but I really like it when artists try different things. To me it shows they are not scared of their creativity and don't wish to conform. I've been a fan of Breaking Benjamin since their album "We are not Alone" came out, but "Phobia" is my favorite album of theirs. They also have a new album coming out this month. The first single from that album is "I Will Not Bow" which is on the soundtrack for the new Bruce Willis flick Surrogates. It seems BB is finally getting the break they deserve. This band is another one that inspires me while writing.
So, take a listen, grab a seat...let me know what you think of these shows and the music! Promise you won't be disappointed!
