Discovering Shinedown

I am quite grateful for the rekindled wonder for music.  I’ve always known that I won’t like pop music, but lately, I’ve been surrounding myself with anything and everything I can consume.

It’s quite exhilarating really, but I know soon enough I’ll go back to my roots.  For now, I’m enjoying the scouring for new things that I haven’t listened to — for a while or ever — and that’s how I chanced upon Shinedown.

Actually, I’ve been obsessed with Ed Sheeran lately, but more on that later.

I saw this Warner Studio series on YouTube recently and this tattooed vocalist immediately caught my attention.  They remind me of Creed and Staind; I’m this close to calling them a hybrid of both.

But hey, I am yet to look into their body of work first before I say anything further.

Anyway, this is the song that made me extra curious about them.

Do you have any suggested Shinedown performances that I should listen to?  Comment away!

Crossing the bridge

I think this should make a really good goal.  Really.  I have not crossed a bridge of this height before and I think this is a good place to start.

This is the Bridge of the Immortals in Huang Shan, China.  I am quite embarrassed to say that for a person my age, I have not traveled enough.  A few friends of mine are planning to go to China next year; I just might tag along with Dylan.  I wonder how it would feel like to walk this bridge.

Maybe we all need a little more adventure in our lives.
