Been a fan of Linkin Park for awhile, though I’ve never really listened to any of their full albums. I listened to this one tonight while working on a new beanie for my etsy shop (which I finished and will be posting soon). I enjoyed this musical journey. Some parts of it sound like movie soundtrack pieces… maybe some are, I don’t know.

I didn’t think I had heard of Imagine Dragons before I started listening to this but heard a couple songs that I’ve listened to and liked on the radio. I enjoyed this album and am possibly thinking about buying it to add to my collection. I probably never would have run across this and considered buying it if it hadn’t been on YouTube… something for the record companies to think about. This album is an easy listen. I would classify it as something to listen to when you just feel like laying down and “tuning out” from the world. It was certainly a great album to relax to and get some knitting done on a new beanie I’m going to be adding to my etsy shop soon. By the way, the beanie I posted in my last update has already sold 🙂

Madonna – The Virgin Tour (1985) Concert


I cannot tell you how many times I have watched this video on YouTube. This was my favorite “madonna era”. This woman has done soooo much in the music industry….. it’s incredible…. and she’s still going strong today. She is one of my most favorite music artists I follow or listen to.

Quick Etsy Shop Update: I’ve got something new I will be posting today. Look for it coming up in a post this afternoon 🙂

Just Bought A New Book – Under The Dome by: Stephen King


I’ve just purchased a kindle ebook version of Under The Dome by Stephen King. I have thought about tackling this book several times but always put it off due to it’s huge 1000+ page size… but since I could not stop thinking about the plot of this book, I couldn’t resist it any longer… especially after having just finished reading a somewhat mediocre space adventure. I am a fairly slow reader so it will probably take me a couple of months to read this book. I hope it’s good.

Under the Dome: A Novel By Stephen King

The Fourth Civilization


book_tfc

I’m starting a new (unintended) blog category (Books I’ve Read) with this post. I wanted to share my latest book read, and since I don’t have an official blog for this subject, I decided to share it here for now, and plans are to start a separate blog just for my book readings at some other time…. or maybe I’ll just turn this blog into a “books & music” blog… who knows….. when you have someone who is as indecisive as I am…., well you never know what to expect lol.

I read ebooks on Kindle and this is the latest book I’ve read that I just finished today. This book is called The Fourth Civilization and it’s a pretty decent space exploration / war between alien races type book. The story is pretty interesting and has a lot of originality I think and I enjoyed it, although the kindle formatting in it seemed a little off to me. You can read the review below that I wrote on Amazon about it…

MY KINDLE REVIEW – – – I had to give a low rating (2 stars) due to that this ebook has a nerve racking formatting issue in that the margins are not justified correctly. There is a wide margin on the left which makes it annoying to read. This formatting issue was seen on my Galaxy Note 2 android phone in the Kindle app, my Galaxy Tablet in the Kindle app, on my Kindle Keyboard, and on my new Kindle Paperwhite that I finished reading this book on that I just bought two days before this review… so this issue is not a device or app issue. It is a format issue with the ebook file itself. Still I pushed through the book to finish. The story was interesting, though I found myself lost along the way at times, but I think that’s more of my own personal issue of not paying attention maybe, so is not the authors fault. I enjoyed the book more toward the end. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys space stories but the format issue needs to be fixed so the book can be more enjoyable to read.

Wow, talk about a surprise at finding this cool album. This is from 1980 and is a rock group I never heard of before although I’ve heard of their lead singer who I thought was just a solo artist, John Waite. There are some really cool and fun rock tunes on this album. It’s certainly different from any rock sound I’ve listened to before but I can see this becoming one of my favorite albums to rock out to now and then.

I actually posted this one on my blog before I listened to the whole album. I never heard of this guy but fell in love with his voice 2 songs into the album. Dude, this guy can sing!!… and this is another one of those old out of print cd’s that is hard to find and expensive if you do find it. I’m glad I took a chance on clicking the link to this one on YouTube. Great songs, and great rock music from the early 90’s.

You all should know before this blog gets too far underway that I like I lot of 80’s music since it is what I grew up on, so expect to see a lot of it blogged here 🙂
