May I just say...


I hate, hate, HATE when artists get super famous. Because then they just start writing crap and try to become crowd pleasers. It's like... forcing art, which is not something you can do.

Take Owl City. A lovably crappy "band" to begin with - I mean, it's just Adam Young by himself. I mean don't get me wrong. Lots of his stuff sounds exactly the same (people say he ripped off the Postal Service- if they actually knew both bands they'd know how grossly incorrect that is) and I agree. But I love it just the same! His music was like my happy music and it was nice and all. I love love love Of June, Maybe I'm Dreaming, and Ocean Eyes.

When I bought All Things Bright and Beautiful, I didn't quite get what I signed up for. One, the title is pretty corny. And two... wtf are you doing bringing in rappers? And that breanna girl? Hello, I thought I signed up for some more of Adam Young awesomeness. I get the same feeling of "ugh" listening to this new album that I get when I listen to the American Top 40. This was like... musical diarrhea, to say the least. I'm sorry to say I didn't like his new album. It just isn't artful and heartfelt like his other albums. *sigh*

Wow, you really read all that? Danggg. Props! =]

Well, I see you've just had the imponderable joy of stumbling onto the blog of an 18-year-old girl who can't really describe herself in 500 words or less, such as in little text boxes like these. She didn't intend her blog to really become so much like her online diary (she was hoping it would have an interesting, helpful purpose to serve the world and all) but blogging is just kind of fun. This girl's a bit of an environmentalist and a full-tilt vegetarian, a bit of an artist who can't draw, a bit of a writer who can't find time to read, and a completely hopeless romantic. She enjoys white chocolate, coloring, wading in creeks, music, Doctor Who, and speaking in third-person when it's unnecessary like this.

Now go read the rest of the blog and meet her, if you like of course. :)
