New Music – Are You Listening?

The second CD I picked up was the first solo album of “Dolores O’Riordan” (of Cranberries Fame), “Are You Listening?” I haven’t had this CD as long but I have enjoyed it much more than the Linkin Park CD.

I just finished Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. The story is about an alternate reality where magic and faries are (or were) real and their existance was never doubted. It takes place in early 19th century England, a time which hasn’t seen any magicians for well over a hundred years, until now. […]

My friends and I picked up and started playing World of Warcraft yesterday. There have been good and bad things about the game. The good: All characters are very well balanced (seemingly), and you can have fun in a group or solo with any of them. The environments and character models are amazingly well done. […]
