Album Review: Daughtry’s Break The Spell

Thanks to one of my Twitter friends Autumn for tweeting she was going to buy the Daughtry album after she got out of school today. After that I looked it up on Spotify and ademptted to listen to it. After two episodes of Ridiculousness I switched it off and listened to the album fully. There’s a more mellow tone compared to Nickelback’s album. In there’s it was big and hardcore. Daughtry’s first single from the album, is like the song of the whole thing. Every song is slow and mellow. Doesn’t really get loud.

Out of the whole album, my favorites were “Outta My Head,” “Gone Too Soon” and “Lullaby.” I’ve got to say “Gone Too Soon” is pretty much the saddest song I’ve ever heard in my entire life. The title could give away what’s about. Good thing I braced myself beforehand. By the last few before it ended just seemed like dragging on and on. I’m a Daughtry fan and I just wanted it to end. It sounds harsh I know, but not every review I do has to have a happy ending.

I’ve got to say after those songs ended and I heard an acoustic guitar play and Chris’ voice sing this sweet song I almost started crying to that one too. It was called, “Lullaby” and you know it was written for those little ones he’s got now. What I found so weird about it was both Daughtry and Nickelback had songs titled “Lullaby” and both were so different on music wise. How they were written were similar, but I’ve got to admit Daughtry’s was too adorable to ignore. I liked Nickelback’s sound to their’s though. If you like mellow albums, this might be a winner for you.

Album Review: Nickelback’s Here And Now

So today is the release of Nickelback’s new ablum “Here And Now” and I’ve actually looked forwarded to this album a lot more than their other ones. My parents love their music and I’m a fan too, just not like them. After listening to this one though, I think I can say I love them and feel happy about it. When Sirius XM Octane started playing “When We Stand Together” and “Bottoms Up” I could feel myself getting hooked fast already. I expected to not like every song, because there’s not too many rock albums that I can listen to from start to finish. This, I can add to that list. Even though I might have a few songs on repeat.

I know I’m already addicted to “Lullaby” because of how it starts. It starts with a piano, and it’s so much different. Now since I have never listened to their past albums from beginning to end, I could be wrong. I’ve never heard them not start off with a guitar before this song. It’s kind of a surprise. I definitely think it’s a four and a half star album. I just wish they had more than 11 songs.

My mom and sister watched the American Music Awards, and mom’s got a crush on the bass player and drummer. She literally asked me after the commerical come on and said, “did you see the bass guitarist and drummer?” She’s a nut. I’m a Chad fan, he’s just too good looking to ignore. I hope they come to Indiana when they go on tour. I think my parents and I would fun seeing them live. If you’re a Nickelback hater reading, don’t you dare post a comment. It will be deleted for sure. Hell, if you’re a hater, maybe this album will change your mind for good. It’s seriously the best album of the year. Best rock album at least.

Speaking Of Deserts.

I’ve still got deserts on the brain. Sorry, not the ideal breakfast to some but for someone like me it sounds like one hell of an idea right now. I talked about the cake lollipops last night after we came home from the football banquet. They were so amazing!! However I didn’t eat any cookies last night, but I do have a lot of chocolate which I’m surprised didn’t keep me awake until 10pm last night. I wasn’t too happy about that.

It’s been awhile since I’ve had an ice cream sandwhich. They sound really good right now too. Cookies, ice cream, and chocolate chips on the sides of the ice cream. Hello?!?! What can be any better than that? Ok wait, don’t answer that. My dad had shared his Enclaire’s with me and those were good, but I think these and dum-dums ice cream cones are much better. Man, do they both sound so good right now? I’ve got to stop before I explode.

Almost Ended Up Being A Yucky Day

Yesterday wasn’t as bad (weather wise) and I had already explained it last night. Today was okay. I woke up before noon, and after I thought I was going to get up. I wanted to get up at 10am but that didn’t work as I wanted it to be. I was supposed to go watch Emily give her title away at the Gingerbread pageant today, but the weather today kind of killed that plan. It pretty much rained off and on all day long. It sucked actually.

When I first woke up I could feel my whole body just kind of get lazy, and if I wasn’t careful I’d fall back asleep. So I sat myself up and got online as soon as I could get up. That ended up being a challenge all on its own. After I was getting bored on there, I told myself “well why not read?” So I grabbed my Kindle out of its box and started reading it. I’m getting very into it. Then after a little bit of that, between my hips screaming at me for mercy and my light kind of bothering me. I put it away and laid down.

I was slightly depressed and I was watching Our American on OWN and it was making me sad and I literally thought I could fall asleep right there. Dad came in twice, once to get me another drink because my mom was at Emily’s pageant. Then they came back, Emily straightened her hair and mom got me dressed, when I first got up I didn’t think I wasn’t going to go since it was raining anyways, so when mom came in I was shocked a little. Emily had the Football banquet and so we all loaded up in the truck and when we were almost there it started raining. A little rain doesn’t bother me. My wheelchair’s went through worse with me in it. I’ve never been to a banquet before, because I didn’t do any sports. Usually for these I stay at my nana’s but dad had his friends over so we knew he wasn’t going.

I swear when we got up by the gate I saw a part of my town I’ve never seen before. I am 20 years old and realized where all the trains go in my hometown. I’ve never realized it before and seeing these big buildings and pipes going everywhere just amazed me! It doesn’t really take anything to get me amazed, but this was just awesome! I’m sure my sister and mom were laughing on the inside on how I was talking about it all. It’s actually pretty embarrassing to tell you all about, but oh well. We got there and waited a bit for more people to get there. Where my sister sat all the cheerleaders sat at too. They weren’t recognized, but the football players were, but of course it was their banquet. They served up good food, even though I didn’t like the Mac & Cheese as much as I thought I would. I love mac & cheese too, but I wasn’t feeling theirs too much.

Whoever made the deserts though hit money! Oh my god! Cake lollipops are the most amazing things I’ve had in a long time. I though at first they’d be cheesecake instead but nope, one of the football players said they were filled with cake. Even though he didn’t specified what kind of cake it was, I still eat it. They were so good! My mom got me another one and even though it wasn’t like my first one it was still delicious! I think I could have eaten just those and that’s it. I’m still trying to figure out what were the white things on my second one. My mom and I were fighting about them being either white chocolate chips or marshmallows. They didn’t really have a taste, the icing or whatever and cake pretty well took over the flavor. I need to make those soon!

Considered A Life Blog

I have considered making another blog talking about only my life and the stories I have inside. My great aunt wanted my nana and I to write a book based on my life, but to be honest I’ve kind of hated the idiot. My nana liked it of course and started on it, but everytime she would ask me about certain times I would remember it well and tell her about it. She had several pages from the start of my life, but on how she wanted to do it wasn’t what I wanted. She and my aunt already wanted to give it the title “Faith Is All You Need.” No offense or anything, but I hardly have faith in myself and if it’s about me. I’d like it to be from my mouth. Yeah, I didn’t remember myself as a baby, but I have hundreds or more memories stuck in my brain that they need to be let out.

I’ve been thinking about this for a few nights now. How I was going to design the theme and create it how I want it to be. It won’t be so much about reviews and stuff like that. Which I don’t mind doing stuff like that. I think I would do a few stories on there that reflect me. I just don’t want to start another blog about my life and kind of leave this one behind. I have readers on this one that I actually like my stuff which is so nice, but since I’ve been thinking more I’ve thought about letting my memories flow out and it’s time to set me free from anything I’ve felt in the past. I think it would be good for me to do. I don’t like I’d let my family follow it because it would be stories of my life that’s somewhat hard to express. I already have trouble speaking about certain things and not worried about being judged about it.
