This weekend Justin and I had the chance to go and see Beck preform. It was a fantastic show. I love not only when an artist shares their music but also shares a bit of themselves. Beck said that reviewers have been glad that on tour he's not playing too much of the new stuff, which is acoustic, quiet and beautiful. He talked about how he'd always found comfort in those kinds of songs and how he loved playing with this group of musicians, who were a part of that for him. He said, "We shouldn't be afraid of the quiet things."
Finally watched Vampire Academy! It poofed from the theatre so quickly, I had to wait until DVD release. As someone whose read the book series, I understood it and got a lot of the jokes but I'm not sure if the non-fan would appreciate it as much. Definitely a repeat watcher, although I'm still mystified that everyone thinks of it as funny which I never got when reading the book. Still, it's great to have a film centred on a strong female fighter-spirited protagonist. I will take that any day!
