Hi everyone! This is my first Music Monday in a while. I’ve been busy with school (I’m about to graduate! Only 6 more months and I’ll have my BA in English Literature!) and therefore have not had much time to put into my blog. Yesterday, following a huge finals related panic attack, I decided to upload a poem and I remembered how much I enjoyed blogging so I decided to give it a try again. Probably won’t be able to post much during the next week but soon I’ll be posting more if I can finally force myself to commit to it. Now I’ll go into Music Monday which is the actual purpose of the post.

It’s been a while since I posted something in my blog and for that reason I decided to do a quick music post. Let’s all reflect on the impending death of the music industry and the birth of a new generation of “artists”. (I’m still trying to figure out if I would prefer Justin Bieber or Rebecca Black)
I announced a few weeks ago that Shortcut To Last was about to release their new video. It took longer but it’s finally here and it’s f#$%!*g awesome!!! It’s called “It’s Not Enough” So take a look and remember to visit their MySpace, subscribe to them on YouTube, follow them on Twitter, and if you like them, get their album on iTunes. Enjoy!
I took the liberty of stealing this idea from my friend Justin a.k.a. Eternal Opus (Check his amazing blog here.) and I’m sure he won’t mind. =) Basically I want to share with you the kinds of music I like and hopefully you will also leave me your music suggestions. Life would be boring without music!

Recently I was going through the internet searching for information about my favorite band Paramore. While searching I stumbled on an article called “Paramore’s “Brick by Boring Brick”: A Song about Mind Control”. My usual curiosity got the best of me and I clicked on the link thinking that maybe I was about to read an intelligent article about the symbolism of the video which is in my opinion one of the best Paramore has ever made. I can’t even describe my surprise when I started reading it and found out that it was only and article trying to stain Paramore’s name and image by cataloguing it as a group that is involved in brain washing schemes and evil ways. Knowing that the guys of Paramore are really open about their religious beliefs I was pretty sure this article was extremely misguided. As I kept reading it I noticed how the author took the simplest things and made a total analysis on how evil they were and how they represented the occult.
