"Of the Month" April ’08

Link of the Month:
My Wish List
It’s that time of year again: Time for you to buy things for me for my birthday! BUY THINGS FOR ME! Don’t forget to sort the wish list by PRIORITY. And DO NOT buy me Mario Kart Wii (Carrie is getting that for me). Thanks in advance! I’M SHAMELESS!

DVD of the Month:
Battlestar Galactica Season 3
Here is the of-told story of my relationship with BSG: I watched most of the 1st season and enjoyed it very much. I watched the beginning of the 2nd season, but then I just kinda fell out of habit of watching it, and I kinda forgot about it. When the 3rd season premiered I thought, "I’ll give it another shot." I was immediately hooked. And to my shock every single episode of Season 3 just kept getting better and better and better and… I don’t know of any other single season of any other television show that had as many "Holy Sh*t" moments as BSG Season 3.

Album of the Month:
Leeni : 8 Bit Heart
Leeni is a local (Seattle-based) woman, who made the wise decision of composing the music for her latest album almost entirely using an old-school, 8-bit Nintendo Gameboy®. She also has a very pretty voice, very soothing and highly reminiscent of someone (exactly whom… I just can’t put my finger on it). The songs tend to be a bit on the long side for my taste (the shortest one is more than 3:30; I like my songs in the 2:00 to 3:00 range), leaving only room for 9 on the entire album, but the Gameboy music is just plain fun and innovatively used, and the songs never grow tiresome. This album is right up my alley and I highly recommend it.
