Hmmm. Lots of happenings in pop culture this month. While the past two weeks has been a 'Music Week' with quite a few new albums by bands I like being released, the NEXT two weeks is gonna be a 'Movie Week', with a lot of 'big' movies coming out too.
Well, first up, a recap of the music stuff:
I'd been considering several purchases of CDs these past week, (though I eventually didn't buy any because of another reason I'll mention later). Among them Goo Goo Dolls, Pearl Jam, Snow Patrol and Corinne Bailey Rae.
Pearl Jam's eponymous album should be interesting. Worldwide Suicide is a pretty decent rocker, but still, has not convinced me that I should buy the album. I love the cover though (even though I don't know what the hell it is). Still, Pearl Jam being Pearl Jam, it should be an interesting album.
I considered buying Goo Goo Dolls' Let Love In, and tested it out as well. It sounds like a lot of their previous albums, and have yet to determine whether it's worth buying.
Ok, so Corinne Bailey Rae's album WASN'T released this month, but nevertheless, it's still one that I plan to get probably next month though. I like her voice. :D
The one I REALLY wanted to buy this month was Snow Patrol's Eyes Open though. I really like Chasing Cars, which fits in perfectly right after you play Run. It's a predictably uplifting song, but I couldn't stop listening to it. The rest of the album's pretty good as well.
However, unfortunately, all my album purchases this month tergendala sebentar because of another announcement tha came out earlier this month.... COLDPLAY is going to Singapore in July.
Now, I'm not THAT big a fan of the band, but there is a reason why they are called masters of the stadium anthem, and that is why I'm NOT gonna miss a chance to see them live... Besides, I've always dreamnt of singing at the top of my voice Fix You in their concert...
And now, on to movies. Watching a couple of movies this week, among them is that the adaptation of THAT movie-script-cum-fiction-impersonating-a-historical-novel, a movie about animals going over a hedge or something, and the one I've been waiting for - The one with about the three X's (which does not star Vin Diesel or Ice Cube, BTW).
Yup, it's a good month for shallow pop culture junkies indeed...
Cool a beer in 15 minutes…
