I figured that for my last Blog entry for class I would talk about an issue that means something to me. Something above and beyond a meaningful quote or reading. Something that ultimately defines me and what I am about ... What I will talk about is my favorite T.V. show as of late. Six Feet Under dudes and dudettes! This show owns! I know that my English teacher is not to thrilled about this show, but I have never been so stoked about a show before. Above all else, Six Feet isn't a reality show! I havent watched a decent show with actors in it for years! The show bases itself around a family who owns and operates a funeral home. Six Feet, like other HBO shows, always pushes the envelope. It brings up all kinds of issues through its characters; from death to homosexuality. The characters are, in my opinion, all likable. My favorite aspect of the show is that every episode begins with the death of someone. This death sets up each individual episode because the person who dies is taken to the funeral home. I know it seems confusing, but it is also pretty simple. All I can say though is check it out if you can. I rented the first season on DVD and immediately downloaded the second and third season on my computer, incidentally staying up till 2 every night to watch them all. I am now going through withdrawl because I have no idea when season 4 is due. I have tried to watch the other new HBO show called Carnivale, but it is just not the same. Season three also left on a cliffhanger so I am basically stuck here.
On a separate note, I have been listening to a band called Armor for Sleep lately and they have a stellar line in one of their songs:
"If I were sand and you were oceans, the moon would be why you're pulled to me." - Armor for Sleep
It caught my ear the first time I heard it. It's a powerful line that relays a simple message. Well thats about all for me. I have so much to do and I am drastically running out of time to do it. Lates!
