Wizard World Chicago is less than a week away and I couldn't be more excited. It'll be fun to gather with friends, comics, and the Windy City for a few days of reading, relaxation, and spending! My focus this year will primarily be on trade paperbacks, but I hope to find a few choice Silver Age comics well. I'm geeking out for some four-color fun.
My friend, Jeff, recently posted a music review and I have been inspired name drop some discs I too have given a whirl . K-Dub and I splurged on half.com and picked up a few fine CDs. We picked up M. Ward's "Post War," Calamine's self titled EP, Taken By Trees "Open Field," and Sea Wolf's "Leaves in the River." I've had the chance to listen to both M. Ward and Taken by Trees and have been pleased with the purchases. I hope to spin the other two this weekend. I also recently picked up the original soundtrack to the film, "The Fountain." Sweeping arrangements and emotional strings highlight the disc. The film has slowly been positioning itself as my favorite movie, which is something of a development since I have never had a fave, just a select few I like alot.
