Salem's Lot

Really good books. I enjoyed Carrie a little better but that is not to say that Salem's Lot good because it was good.

Debate Tower / Music Debate: Is Wonderwall the best Oasis song?
« on: June 12, 2019, 10:47 am »
I suppose that is a silly question to ask. Rather I should ask, is it one of their best songs? I really enjoy the song Wonderwall and is one of my favorite songs of all time. But, I have taken the time to listen to other Oasis songs and have since found songs that I may consider just as good or better than Wonderwall. Champagne Supernova anyone? So, what is your opinion?

I have been inactive for a while and I can only assume that a lot has gone done during my period of inactivity. So, what's happened?

Music / All Matchbox Twenty Albums Ranked from Best to Worst
« on: May 02, 2019, 01:44 pm »
1. Exile on Mainstream

Their fourth album and my personal favorite, this album is more of a compilation album rather than an actual studio album. This is the first album to not have guitarist Adam Gaynor because he left the band in 2005. Half of the album has new material and the other half is "The Best of". I actually like this. The new material is good and I like "The Best of". This is an essential for those wanting to start listening to Matchbox Twenty.

2. More Than You Think You Are

Their third album, this album was not much of a commercial success but I really enjoyed this album. Rob Thomas has a talent for writing songs and his ability to do so really shows on this album. With songs like Bright Lights and Unwell, this is a really good album.

3. Mad Season

Their second album, this album had a different sound than their first album. It had more of a pop sound and I actually like it. This style makes them not like the other rock bands and makes them unique.

4. Yourself or Someone Like You

Their first album, this album is probably the most well known Matchbox Twenty album. Before Matchbox Twenty, there was a band called Tabitha's Secret which consisted of some of the members of Matchbox Twenty. One song that Tabitha's Secret did was 3AM which was done by Matchbox Twenty. This album is good and I would recommend listening to this one. Reason why it sits low on this list is that there are only a handful of songs that I really liked. Not to say it is bad it just has fewer songs that I liked.

5. North

Their most recent album, this album was good but not as good as the other Matchbox Twenty albums. The music is good but not nearly as enough songs that I enjoyed than the previous albums. But the songs that I liked were relaxing and fun to listen too. Not an album I would totally recommend.

Music / All The Cranberries albums ranked from Best to Worst
« on: April 24, 2019, 11:25 am »
1. No Need To Argue

Their second album, this is the one album that comes to mind when you think of Cranberries. This album is much darker in tone than the first album which I actually like. This album is one of my favorite albums of all time and it really holds up well to this day. The songs, instrumentals, and Dolores O'Riordan's voice makes this album a must listen too.

2. Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?

Their first album, The Cranberries did not experience success until this album was released. This album is great and a classic. All the good things that I have to say about the second album can be said about this album besides that this album does not have the darker tone that the second one had. Still, this album is great and if you listen to this album, you will hear some great, under-rated classics.

3. To The Faithful Departed

Their third album, I had some low expectations for this album for the fact that I knew their previous album could not be beat. I was wrong. This album was fairly good. I have more appreation for this album because of the meaning behind the album. My personal favorites on this album include Salvation, I'm Still Remembering, Hollywood, and Bosnia just to name a few. This album is under-rated in my opinion and I would recommend listening to this album in your spare time.

4. Wake Up and Smell The Coffee

This album marked the decline of The Cranberries in terms of popularity. But that does not mean this album was bad because it actually was good. This album had some good songs on it like Analyse and Wake Up and Smell the Coffee. Not a an album I would recommend right away to one wanting a good album to listen to. But still a good album.

5. Roses

After Wake Up and Smell the Coffee, The Cranberries went on a 11 year hiatus. This album was the album that they released after the hiatus. I was expecting a different and more modern sound from the Cranberries and that is what I got while still retaining their style. There was not too many stand out songs for me though. Though this is their first album in 11 years so I cannot be too picky. Not a bad album, just not too many stand out songs.

6. Bury The Hatchet

Their fourth album, Bury The Hatchet was an album that I had no idea what to expect. The album had a few songs that I liked but nothing too special. Their most popular song on this album, Animal Instinct, is honestly a song that I did not care for. But, their were songs like Just My Imagination that I think are good on this album. Overall, a very mediocre album.

7. In The End

This is the Cranberries last album before the lead singer Dolores O'Riordan died in 2018. This album was released posthumously in 2019. There were only 4 songs on this album and I had some high expectations. I was expecting the four songs to be very emotional but I didn't feel it. I feel bad for having this album on the very bottom but it is what it is.

Music / All Nirvana Albums Ranked from Best to Worst
« on: April 12, 2019, 03:11 pm »
1. MTV Unplugged In New York

One of my personal favorite albums of all time. Though it is technically cheating because this is not a studio album but who cares? This is one of the greatest live performances of all time for many reasons. One is that Nirvana playing acoustic is amazing! Another reason is that this was the last televised Kurt Cobain performance before his suicide. With many songs by Nirvana like On A Plain, Polly, Come as You Are, About A Girl, and my personal favorite All Apologies. There is also many covers of songs by Meat Puppets, The Vaselines, David Bowie, and Lead Belly. (Where Did You Sleep Last Night, Lake of Fire, The Man Who Sold the World, and Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam are my favorites). This is a must listen to if you have not already.

2. Nevermind

Many people would say that Nevermind should be top spot, but who cares, it is my opinion. Nevermind is a great album and the second studio album by Nirvana and the one that made Nirvana very popular. The whole album is great! I cannot pick one single song that I would consider my favorite because they are all so damn good. If you have not heard a song on this album, you have not lived!

3. From the Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah

I am cheating once again. This is another live album by Nirvana released a couple of years after Kurt's death. I like this album because it is a compilation of various songs performed live in different locations. This album was good but what makes it worthy of being the third spot? Maybe because it has a little bit of everything from Nirvana. You got a little 80's Nirvana, some Nevermind, post-Nevermind, and In Utero. It is a good listen.

4. In Utero

Nirvana's third and final studio album, this album had a darker tone to it. This was the first Nirvana album that I ever listened too and I loved it but since listening to other albums, I found something better than In Utero. Not to say that this album is bad, because it is not. Songs like Serve the Servants, Heart-Shaped Box, Rape Me, Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle, Dumb, Pennyroyal Tea, and All Apologies are my personal favorites from this album. I do recommend this album.

5. Hormoaning

Again, I am kind of cheating. I mean, Nirvana only had 3 studio albums! This is an EP and one that was not released in the US (that is at least to my current knowledge). There were not too many songs but most of them are good. Not a bad EP, something that if you can find, I would listen too.

6. Incesticide

This is the first compilation album by Nirvana. Released post Nevermind, this is music that were demos, B sides, and outtakes. This has some good songs (most of which were on the previous EP). Sliver is probably the best song on the album. But most of the songs on the album, were a mess in my opinion. Mexican Seafood is one such example. Not terrible, just not something that I would say that it is a go to for when I am in need of something to listen too.

7. With The Lights Out

A box set consisting of never before released and already released material, this was released in 2004, 10 years after Cobain's death. I am not entirely a huge fan of the never released material, but it is something nice to have in a collection.

8. Bleach

Nirvana's first studio album released in 1989. This album had critical success but did not sell well. The only song I can say that I really like and it was About a Girl. Other than that, I did not really care for this album. Nirvana's sound in this album is more hard grunge something that makes this album so different from their other albums. I bet there is someone out there that praises this album over all the other albums. Not terrible, just not my cup of tea.

And all I loved I loved alone
And all that could have been

I kinda liked my previous one. But this one might do.

Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do, about you now
Backbeat, the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now
And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don't know how
Because maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you're my wonderwall
Today was gonna be the day
But they'll never throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you're not to do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do, about you now
And all the roads that lead you there are winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don't know how
I said maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you're my wonderwall
I said maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you're my wonderwall
I said maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me
you're gonna be the one that saves me
you're gonna be the one that saves me

Much like Monster Madness (which will start in October), I got to thinking, I like doing the Monster Madness, but what do I do when I am done with Monster Madness? I thought about starting Marvel Madness which is essentially me reviewing the Marvel movies. Then I might do the DC movies but I need to think of a catchy title. DC Madness does not seem too catchy.

General / Day by Day Breakdown of My Time in Florida
« on: April 01, 2019, 10:58 am »
In case any of you were wondering why I have not been active in the past week, I was enjoying the Flordia sun. Now, you may be thinking, King, was Florida really worth not being on the forums? Well, you will have to continue reading. Now, if you are not curious about why I was not on the forums for a whole week, then be prepared for what I am about to tell you.

Day 1:

Went to school and eager to go to Florida. The HS band was going to go, I am apart of the band and invested over $1000 to be able to do this trip. Once school was over with, I finished packing and got on the bus. I was wanting to be with my girlfriend but you know how younger children think that they are so entitled. So, I sat as far away as possible from her and the only way of communication was over text. The first few hours of the ride involved me indulging myself with The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D. As the evening rolled around, I decided to watch some Youtube. I religiously watched Nostalgia Critic for about 4 hours. I finished Season 1 and by the time I did that, it was about 10:00 at night. I was starting to get tired and tried to fall asleep but the bus seats were uncomfortable as splode. I rolled around for a little bit and eventually decided to find a Space Ambient Music Live Stream on Youtube and engaged in typical chat room banter. I must have been the only one up because I looked behind me a couple of times and saw most of the people were asleep. I did this for about 4 more hours before I eventually feel asleep for about an hour.

Day 2

So, after falling asleep for about an hour (5:00 to 6:00), I wake up and decided to watch more Youtube (Nostalgia Critic). We eventually got to Volcano Bay. We got ready and we waited in line for security. I made a joke about how anything can be a weapon and said that I will use my fists of fury if I needed to. I joined a group with my friends (about 7 people). We started swimming in the wave pool when another friend from another group came around and asked if I would join him in the quest to climb the mountain and go down the drop slides. I accepted and told my group that I will return. I manage to get my girlfriend on the drop slide. The drop slide was really fun and my girlfriend seemed to like it but she claims that she didn't. I go to where I told my group that I would meet them and of course they are not there. So, I spend a good hour trying to look for them with no luck. I eventually find them and we spend the rest of the time looking for food. We later left the park and got checked into the hotel where one of the people brought their Xbox One. We had to get ready to perform for Give Kids the World which is something for kids with disabilities. We performed for them and we went back to the hotel where a big chunck of the band decided to chill out at the pool and hot tub. I was one who decided to join them. The hotel had 2 pools (both outside). One pool was about 20 degrees cooler than the pool that everyone was in. Me and a big group of people decided to Jackass the slide. (Doing stupid stuff on the slide) I eventually went back to my room where the guys in my room were playing Apex with the other band members in other rooms. I played some Halo and eventually passed the controller to another guy and decided to watch... you guessed it Youtube and yes it was more Nostalgia Critic.

Day 3

So, I must have fell asleep while watching Youtube because

1. Nostalgia Critic was in my dreams
2. I woke up with my phone on the floor with a crack in it
3. I checked my history and seen that I fell asleep while half of Season 2 Nostalgia Critic was playing.

Had breakfast and established a new group with the people I ate breakfast with. We went to Island of Adventure and most of the day involved me walking around and not doing a whole lot because there has to be the one person who does not want to do anything. We went to Harry Potter world and I blew over $100 there. I do not regret a single thing. I made a joke about the crowd. I was like "I wonder what spell can lessen the crowd. *cough* AVADA KADAVRA!!!. Anyway, that was that. Went back to the hotel, got in the pool and hot tub, got out, went to my room and fell asleep.

Day 4

We went to Cocoa Beach. The ride going there and back consisted of me watching Youtube (Nostalgia Critic). We went to Ron Jon's and I bought a vinyl record. Nirvana MTV Unplugged in New York. The beach was ok. I got buried but I was getting sunburned and I got my clothes on early and just listened to music. Later that night we went to Hard Rock Cafe and we watched Blue Man Group. That was really fun and at the end of the show, I got a picture with one of the Blue Men. We went back and I slept.

Day 5 and 6

We packed our stuff and went to Universal Studios. I did not do any rides but I mostly walked around and took pictures. There was one instance where I was in a Sci FI shop. Nobody was in there except me when a person dressed up as Marilyn Monroe came in and said "You gonna buy me something?" To be honest, I got hard for a sec. The band was scheduled to do a clinic where we play music to a scene from Despicable Me. On top of that, there was Voice Overs and Foley involved. The rest of the day was ok. We got on the bus and you guessed it, more Youtube. This time, I actually fell asleep. The next morning I woke up and the person next to me was literally on top of me snoring! I did not want to wake them but, I did what I had to do. Eventually we got home and I relaxed.

1. Dookie
The album that made Green Day big, this is my personal favorite album by Green Day. It is a very nostalgic album. There are the popular hits like She, Basket Case, Welcome to Paradise, Longview, When I Come Around. Then there are the hidden gems like Sassafras Roots, Emenius Sleepus, and Coming Clean. There are a lot of great songs on here. A must listen to.

2. American Idiot
I was debating between Dookie and American Idiot but decided on Dookie to take the number 1 spot. After Green Day's decline in the late 90's and early 00's. This album got Green Day back up and running. This was unique because the whole album told a story. Songs like American Idiot, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Holiday, the 9 minute long Jesus of Suburbia, and the sad song of Wake Me Up When September Ends are my personal favorites on this album.

3. Revolution Radio
The most recent album by Green Day, I was not expecting a good album at first but was impressed. Songs like Outlaws, Still Breathing, Forever Now, and Ordinary World are some songs on this album that I enjoyed. If you are a fan of current Green Day, this is your album.

4. Nimrod
This album is what I like to call the end of the early Green Day era. This is the last popular album before Green Day's decline. But, this is still a somewhat solid album. I am not a fan of the more popular songs like Hitchin a Ride. But songs like Good Riddance (Time of Your Life), Haushinka, and The Grouch are my personal favorites. Overall, it is a pretty decent album.

5. Tre
The last of the trilogy of Green Day albums to be released in 2012, this one is my personal favorite of the trilogy. Songs like Brutal Love, Dirty Rotten Bastards, and 99 Revolutions are some songs from the album that I liked. Just your average album.

6. Kerplunk
Green Day's second album, this album was OK. I would recommend taking a listen to this before listening to Dookie though. Songs like Welcome to Paradise, 2,000 Light Years Away, and One For the Razorbacks are my personal favorites.

7. 21st Century Breakdown
Green Day had success with American Idiot. So, they took the same concept of telling a story and did it again with this album. I felt this album had a darker tone to it which works with some songs. Songs like 21 Guns and 21st Century Breakdown are some songs to listen to on this album.

8. Warning
This album is the beginning of the decline of Green Day. There is one song that I liked which is Minority. The other songs, I am not a huge fan of. Not a terrible album, just needed some better songs.

9. Dos
The second in the trilogy of Green Day albums to be released in 2012, this one is a step up from Uno, but did not have a lot of songs that I seemed to have a liking to. The only song that I really enjoyed was Amy.

10. Insomniac
With the success of Dookie, it was hard to make an album that could top it. Insomniac was released the following year and there were not many songs that I enjoyed. Brain Stew is one song that I liked. Catchy lyrics and what not.

11. 1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours
Green Day's first studio album, while I did not find a song that I enjoyed, besides One For the Razorbacks, this is an OK album if you are into old school Green Day. Despite where this album ranks on my list, this is one not to ignore.

12. Shenanigans
This album is awful. I never would have thought that I would find a Green Day album that is awful. I did not find any good songs at all. The album is not all too memorable and I would ignore this one if I were you.

13. Uno
After listening to the Shenanigans album, I thought could this get any worse. The first of the trilogy of Green Day albums to be released in 2012, this album is just as bad as Shenanigans.
