One of my favorite feelings in the world is when you listen to a song and you can feel the music pulse throughout your body as you listen. I love the chill I get when the notes hit an eerie tune or the pounding in my chest that follows the dramatic beat of the drum. When my breath gets caught in my chest and I can physically feel my body going cold because of the perfect combination of piano and whatever other instrument. I was never the best music student, but let me tell you, I’m a wonderful music fan.
Now I want to talk about a certain score that has caught my attention recently. RMS Titanic by the very talented Adam Young, also known for his beautiful works under the alias Owl City. If you haven’t gotten around to listening to Adam’s latest projects yet I seriously recommend it. Not only is RMS Titanic a beautiful masterpiece, but his previous score, Apollo 11, is one heck of a sound too. I don’t even think I can find the right words the describe these works, but I’m going to try my best to do these musical masterpieces justice.

I don’t know if anyone’s seen this yet, but I’m really excited for this project to come out.
When I was much younger, cartoons seemed so… simplistic. I mean they’re made for child audiences, right? So why wouldn’t they be simplistic, as children don’t have the capacity to understand greater… more complicated… deeper things. So I grew up on shows like Spongebob Squarepants, Fairly Oddparents, and really just about any show that had quirky characters and a color scheme that burned my eyes. Don’t get me wrong, I loved watching these shows as a kid, they were my childhood, and I still do watch them from time to time when I cross them on TV and I simply want to go into a daze for awhile. But what I’ve noticed is that children’s television seems to be getting deeper… and I really like that.
