First of all, are the blog title and post title fonts looking a little strange to you? When I go to edit them, Blogger says they're fine, but on the actual blog they're fugly.
Secondly, I'm going to go see Dream Theater for the second time in my life tonight. Wembley Arena, too. For those who don't know, Wembley Arena is kinda a big deal here in England. It's London's second-biggest indoor arena, and Wikipedia lists it simply as "the third-biggest indoor concert venue," though I doubt that means "ever." Surely.
But yeah, Dream Theater. They were also the first band I properly went to a concert for, back in October. That show was outstanding, in the Tabernacle in Atlanta. I went with some friends and their parents, and they all unanimously voted it as one of the greatest shows they've ever seen. Including a woman who has worked at concerts her whole life, even getting to see Peter Gabriel in the seventies. So.. yeah. This band is really something. They aren't particularly showy on-stage, but one listen to their music will tell you they have a very prominent.. presence, musically. They're extremely technical and talented, each member of the band being among the very top of their league.
I mean, hell. Their guitarist is John Petrucci.
Okay, third news. I've been throwing ideas around in my head about what stories to write next, as silly ol' Jordy isn't satisfied with a million stories plus Rapture. Plus, the first ever Fearniversary starts next week. That's right, the Fear Mythos is about to reach its first birthday. And it's customary to do something to celebrate, so I'll make a million more stories. xD
So for THE FEARNIVERSARY, I am going to make some kind of checklist or other-kind-of-list and we'll see where it goes from there. Get ready for that next post.
Post-Jordanism: noun- The artistic (cultural?) movement which began in late 2011. Works within this deal with themes of existential crisis, identity crisis, posttraumatic stress disorder, the state of being broken, intrusive thoughts of (non)existent(?) memory, the morbid preoccupation with suicide, grief, uncontrollable emotion, and darkness as a simple abstract concept. ex. 1: "Kill me."
