[my] SOUNDTRACK TO COLLEGE:
There are a lot of things that define chapters of our lives. What car we drove, the friends we have, a book we read, the style of clothes, and most certainly (and always) the music we listened to. No one can say “the 80’s” without thinking about those hair-flipping metal bands right?For me, college was a monumental time in my life where I experienced a great amount of change. Not only did I learn a lot about the history of religion and the inner workings of our society, I also spent a lot of time picking apart my own emotional attachment to different things. It was through all these changes that I needed a certain ambience…a vibe…an environment conducive to the kind of growth I needed. 
As out of place as it may seem Kanye West’s “808’s & Heartbreak” created the perfect feeling to take me through the different emotions, and help provide the right feeling for keeping my mind focused on what was in front of me. Sitting in the library with a stack of books, being a hermit in my room writing papers, walking around campus, dealing with girlfriend issues, helping friends through struggles, creating art, or playing video games…the different tracks each provided unique ways for me to escape into seclusion. 
It’d be hard for me to pinpoint a specific song that really stuck out. I think at times (depending on the situation) each one was in it’s own right my “favorite”. And while it may not be his most “Yeezy” album, to me it’s a perfect blend of the different sounds music can make.
If you haven’t you should check it out. As for myself, I’m on to new chapters and different albums…

Listen to the full Daft Punk - Tron Legacy - Soundtrack!!!
[can’t figure out the coding to put it on my “tron” page so it’ll have to go here, too awesome to pass up] 

Soundtrack to my LIFE

Started listening to “Discovery” again a few weeks ago…there’s a reason their music pops up in a lot of my videos!

Daft Punk has been in my top 5 for over a decade now; ever since my older brother introduced me to “Homework”…that fantastic video of the dog walking around the city with the leg cast and boombox…ughdudesogood!

Discovery though is an album I can listen to at anytime, in anyplace, no matter what. It always gets me moving, and always brings back rad memories! I don’t think there is a single song on that disc that isn’t perfect. haha yup, so if you haven’t checked it out…do it!

The fact that they even made an anime movie [Interstella 5555] using ONLY the Discovery soundtrack is proof enough that these songs will never die.They also have their own private club on the islan of Ibitha…I know I butchered that spelling…where it’s a 24hr dance party (though they aren’t ALWAYS DJing). I even heard a rumor that they will be composing the score for the new Tron2 movie! Set phasers to geek!

My friends tend to think that I am ONLY interested in hardcore/metal music, and totally neglect the fact that my music roots were based out of 70’s + 80’s pop bands.

I grew up listening to techno and acoustic tracks, only getting interested in rock music when I started Jr High.

I still can’t waaaaaiiiiit for the day that they finally decide to unveil their real faces to the world, even though I doubt that’ll happen.

I remember back in the early 90’s seeing them in interviews on MuchMusic with these crappy plastic masks that barely hid their identities, then all of a sudden they pop up with these crazy robotic helmets that totally take away any human features. I tend to think that they general public doesn’t even see them as people anymore, just awesome music making robots that will one day explode in a flash of music notes and keytars.
