I am a geek at heart so when Marvels movie The Avengers came out I enjoyed it a bunch. Its just fun smashing and explosions. Everything you want from a summer movie. They did a great job of weaving all the characters together. Im looking forward to where they take everyone next.
I got on this train a little late I think, but The Lumineers album was definitely one of my favorites. The minute I heard them I was in love. Great melodies and lyrics that stick with you. Perfect music to unwind you hectic day to.
Ready Player One - I read this book early on in the year and it was the most fun of all my 2012 reading. if you love pop culture just mix in a dash if Sci-fi and you will have an easy read that you wont put down. Give it a chance. There is no reason this book should get overlooked. Its seriously a lot of fun.
Cartoons are often relegated to being just for kids, but in my opinion, Adventure Time is more creative, thoughtful, and daring then 80% of what's on television today. This show is filled with great wit, beautiful art, and a whimsical quality that keeps it interesting. Definitely something that parents and kids can enjoy together. Thats rare in my book.
I finally embraced my love of coffee fully by getting the Starbuck app for my phone. It's nothing special, but it's great to get rewarded with free drinks and refills while I have been on the road. It's amazing how comforting the familiarity of a coffee shop can be when you are homeless and on tour.
Magical Game Time - This blog by artist Zac Gorman is filled with beautiful pictures and comics he has drawn. He often will blend motion into his comics to create a little more drama in what you see. Even though 80's video games are usually the topic of his art, he makes them extremely interesting even for those who have no idea what they are referencing.
This is one of my favorites, which i thing I even relate to a bit.
