Is rock Dead? No, we still have Alcest

I have been sorely disappointed by the last couple of releases of some of my favorite rock bands.  Most of these guys are from the 90's and I think that most artists only have so many albums of material in them.  It actually feels like rock music might be dying.  But wait there is still one awesome band out there, and they're actually my favorite band right now! Alcest.

There's no other band on the planet like Alcest, and Niege is so young still, only a year younger than me.  I'm sure he'll top off the Shelter album with the new album that's coming out.  A lot of his fans have said that his music is the most emotional music they've heard in a long time.  Words and lyrics don't matter for the portion of us fans who don't speak French, it is just raw, pure emotion in his vocals.  Check out Shelter, and his prior albums, all near perfect albums in my opinion.

Now on to T.I.T.S.  Man we've had some great randoms from the web pledging, but still have a ways to go.  We are at 75% now with only 9 days to go, so it is crunch time!

Numb to Comic Movies - Captain America: Civil War

First off I will say that the Captain America: Civil War movie, a.k.a. as Avengers 3 was better than Avengers 2, but with that being said I just feel numb to these movies anymore.  Sure the action was great, the plot wasn't bad at all either.  I'm known as being a harsh movie critic, but I'd give Captain America a  7/10 which is "GOOD."

From time to time you have to get out of the house and go do something.  And since there isn't much to do here, going to the movies or doing something out in nature is about all you can do.

If I had been a kid growing up and all these comic movies came out I would have been in heaven.  But there has been so many of them and Marvel especially has such a long plan in mind for building up to the Infinity Gauntlet, that I just don't care a lot about it.  I'll watch the movies, but I've become numb to these movies.  Special Effects are great and all, but I'm missing gut-wrenching, emotional ties to the characters.  I do feel that the Flash t.v. show has done a way better job in doing that.

Just my thoughts!
