Thoughts on Red Vox’s “Another Light”

Last week, I went over my thoughts on Red Vox’s What Could Go Wrong. This week, I follow up with their second studio album, which, if gauging fan response, is kind of their magnum opus. At the time (I first listened to this the day of its release), I only listened for myself and decided based on my own tastes. Looking back, however, there is a certain quality to this—whether through mood, sound, or orchestration—that gives it an almost transcendent touch. But does that alone save the album?

Thoughts on Red Vox’s “What Could Go Wrong”

Reviewing music is a topic that has been prevalent in my mind for the blog for quite a while. However, my whole “reviewing should be completely objective” thing combined with “I don’t actually listen to a lot of music” made for very lofty self-expectations, which was intimidating. Now that my mindset is a lot more mellow (probably?), I’ve rekindled my interest in putting my thoughts out on a medium that makes up a great portion of my (and likely many people’s) lives. What better way to start than with an album that already coincides with another interest of mine? Continue reading “Thoughts on Red Vox’s “What Could Go Wrong””

Thoughts on Dorohedoro

When you go into an anime adapted from a manga with an average score in the Top 100 on MyAnimeList’s database, high expectations are inevitable. Dorohedoro, to be frank, was appealing to me for its unique premise and lizard main character. This coming from the dude who watched Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san for similar reasons. (Skeletons!) Whatever happened, my feelings wouldn’t be shaped from experience with the source. I just saw a lizard and some freaky imagery and was intrigued. Continue reading “Thoughts on Dorohedoro”

My Day(s) in Gaming – January 22nd-23rd, 2020

Decided to update the cover image for these posts since the Switch is my preferred console of choice (when not reviewing games on Steam). The first post of the new year, and yet I still find myself playing older or indie games. It’s almost like I don’t like the current state of the mainstream gaming industry! Hahaha!

Merry Days of Anime: Natsume Yuujinchou (Season One)

Fellow anibloggers Irina and Karandi have made their adoration for this anime quite apparent over the years per their respective blogs. When I tweeted out some early impressions of the show, Scott from Mechanical Anime Reviews gave me the social media equivalent of a fistbump. Despite the large volume of expectations that could’ve gone into it, my decision to watch this was entirely based in curiosity and, to a lesser degree, on a whim.

I do not regret it at all. Continue reading “Merry Days of Anime: Natsume Yuujinchou (Season One)”

Merry Days of Anime: R.O.D. – Read or Die (OVA)

Today, a new trailer was revealed for the upcoming James Bond movie titled “Too Awesome to Die Horribly” or something. Today, I watched an anime OVA series that spoofs the secret agent subgenre of action flicks by adding a bunch of fantasy elements while reviving tons of historical figures and making them evil. Is this coincidence? Am I a soothsayer? Neither of these are 0% possibilities if you don’t think about it. Continue reading “Merry Days of Anime: R.O.D. – Read or Die (OVA)”

Merry Days of Anime: Master Keaton [DROPPED]

This post will be bite-sized, as I only got through two episodes before dropping it. Along with this is Master Keaton‘s insistence on remaining episodic, so any sort of development is implied to be stagnant, and definitely didn’t show much over the course of those two episodes.
