Sensing Sensei

Getting close to the end of the year, and probably that time to reflect on things.
Job sucks.
Driving to work and back home still sucks.
Not doing what I want to do, sucks.

Pretty good year for music. My taste has really changed, but I'm not surprised. In cyclical fashion, I've tuned back into a softer style of music. My favs of the year:

The Decemberists - The Rake's Song
Dirty Projectors - Stillness is the Move
Maserati - Inventions (Monolith too)
Passion Pit - Little Secrets
Phoenix - 1901 (thanx to Cadillac; French tho')
Nelly Furtado - Manos Al Aire
Booker T. - Native New Yorker
AMORIC - Only For You

And probably the most undeniably best band I never heard of until this year, has to be Maserati. RIP Jerry Fuchs. What a talent.

And you can tell, this is very far removed from the hard rock I used to rotated through.

On the movie front, I still didn't make my 200 movie quota. Sucks. I did see quite a few movies in theaters this year. The most I've seen outside of rental since I was in high school. Five! w00t! Best in the theater was--"District 9".
Best rental--"Gran Torino". Came out in January..., hard to believe.
Best online (no matter what release year)--"The Train", starring Burt Lancaster. It was just a weird, true story, that seemed impossible to get an audience interested in. But, like District 9, it worked.

Think I'll make other posts instead of extending this one.
