 I couldn't remember if I posted about this band before, but Oceans of Slumber has become a favorite of mine ever since I heard this song, and saw them do a great cover of a Candlemass song.  They sound a lot like The Gathering meets Lacuna Coil so it's got a nice vibe to it.  I'm a sucker for really good Doom Metal, and Gothic Metal so of course I love it.  Enjoy. :)

 This week was good.  I've been trying to get used to this new medication.  With the exception of the first day I took it I haven't had any problems with it.  In fact I think it's working a lot better than the medication I was previously on which is good. 

Yesterday I did a little bit of shopping with my mom.  I ended up buying a new sketchbook, pencils, and I want to start doing some serious artwork again.  I think I'll try to channel what I"m feeling through my artwork.  I discussed this with my therapist a few weeks ago, and she thought it would be a great idea.  It's grey sketch paper so I'll probably use charcoal pencils, and experiment a bit with some sketches.  

I was eyeing a few vinyl records at the bookstore, but the one I wanted was more than I wanted to pay so I decided to pass on it.  

As for music I bought the new David Bowie album yesterday as well.  I was surprised they actually had a bunch of copies at Target.  I chalk it up to people around here not being too keen on his music, or the fact that many of them aren't familiar with who he is maybe.  Obviously I've been on a huge Bowie kick since his unexpected passing last week.  I heard that his last album sold more copies than the Adele album which is pretty awesome.  I'm surprised at how many people are just now discovering his music.  I think I got into him after listening to Ziggy Stardust a year or so ago, and being blow away by how great it was.  The video for Blackstar is very unusual, but that's Bowie for you. 

I also found this great mtv interview from 1982 where he called them out on not playing any black artists on MTV.  He's judging the hell out of this guy, and I don't blame him at all.  

I like how they zoom in on his face at the end to put emphasis on how much he's judging this dude.  lol.

I'm a 32 year old woman. I'm an artist, and I'm into the Gothic subculture. Things that I enjoy include but are not limited to 80's Music, Reading, Drawing, Animation, Playing bass guitar, Gothic rock, indie music, horror films, anime, comics, video games, and sci-fi novels. I don't know what I'd do without music, and art. I listen to Siouxsie and the Banshees way more than I should.
