Monday Morning Commute: Charts, Ghosts, And Murders


Monday Morning Commute.

Every Monday I’m going to detail the various things I’m either currently or will be watching, reading, playing, and listening to in the next seven days. It’s Monday. You’ve got a long week of school, work, or compulsive masturbation to get through. Tell me the arts that you’re indulging in, to stave off suicide. Check out my list after the jump:

Playing / Uncharted 2

It’s a scientific fact that Naughty Dog are the masters of Playstation technology. And to me, their first Uncharted is the only viable system seller for the PS3, up until tomorrow. That’s when the sequel comes out, and I begin to masturbate furiously and disappear off of the face of the Earth for ten hours or so. Hellls yeah.

Watching / Where The Wild Things Are
This shit is finally arriving on Friday. Can you feel it, the anticipation?! Spike Jonze is my hero, this book is a childhood staple. I’m also looking forward to hopefully catching Paranormal Activity at some point this week. If there is one thing I like, it’s not sleeping at night.


Listening / The Black Dahlia Murder: Nocturnal
My friend Bri recommended these guys to me, and pushed me in the way of this album. They’re pretty grindy, I don’t know what genre, death metal? Whatever. All I know is that they have enough hooks to keep my head bobbin’. The sort of music which would probably make my Nana thing the four horsemen hath cometh.


Reading / Altered Carbon
I’ve already read Richard Morgan’s Altered Carbon. However, it’s pretty fucking awesome, and I’m a slut for cyberpunk. If you like Neuromancer, Snow Crash, the Matrix, or Blade Runner, you’d dig this title. It’s something I’m meandering through prior to bed. It’s been long enough that there’s a lot of nuances I missed the first time, and yeah, it’s like hanging out in some dystopian future where I imagine I’d be a super dope detective guy. And I’m doing this, because yes, I’m still trudging through The Brothers Karamazov. Forever. Into infinity.
