Here we are, another awesome Music Monday!
I started liking the rock band Starset a few years ago when “My Demons” came out. Today, though I want to talk about their new(ish) single “Monster.” It was first released in October of 2016, but it is gaining popularity now that the album Vessels is out.

It’s usually attributed to Hemingway, but according to Snopes, the attribution came from a 1959 play by John deGroot.
Well, here I am. A 21-year-old, self-professed geek, and I have never really watched Star Wars.
I saw Episode III and Episode VII, though, so hold your tears! (Or, maybe, let them flow…)
Anyway, back in December I borrowed the originals and prequels from a friend, and finally got around to watching Episode IV: A New Hope after New Years. So, here I am, having watched one Episode from each trilogy… Continue reading

This was on a pop station, right? That makes it “mainstream.”
“Uma Thurman” was released as a single in 2015 a few days before the album American Beauty/American Psycho dropped.
