I was hopping about clicking away at different links and I found this. I've heard of New Order before but I've never listened to them. So this is the first New Order song I've ever heard. It's called Ceremony and it's my favorite song in the world. When people would ask me what my favorite song was I could never really give them a solid answer, I'd say that I had a lot and name the ones at the top of my head, or say I had a favorite song at the moment or just give them names of bands I was into. When I heard this though, something was different and I knew. I cried the third time and I'm convinced it's the best.
Told myself I'd have to start listening to Joy Division because Ceremony was actually written by Ian Curtis. He died before he could get a studio version out though. I've never given Joy Division a listen either which is quite a shocker to people because Joy Division is Joy Division. I only ever knew Love Will Tear Us Apart (because of Donnie Darko and a bad Fall Out Boy cover) so it's about time I started listening. Ceremony is the best though. I love it so much. I can't stop listening. It's like no other song in the world compares to this one.
This got me to thinking about how the world has so much to offer. There are so many things I haven't discovered, songs I've never experienced. I don't remember when the last time a song ever made me feel this whole. Maybe they never even did until now.
Since I fell asleep before I could post yesterday, I'm doing a double entry today. I was up early for a shoot which was tough because I finished Mockingjay at almost 4am that same morning.
It started out being a slow book for me, the first few chapters were just really so sad and slow and kind of boring actually because I had no idea what the heck was going on with Peeta. So I didn't finish in a day like the rest, I read the first 7 chapters in a two day span just because it couldn't hold my attention enough. When Peeta was in the picture though, the book eons quicker and more interesting. From the warning to the rescue until they made their way inside the Capitol, I knew I couldn't put it down even if I had professional responsibilities to tend to. I know I was so into the whole Gale and Peeta thing after I read the first two books. The thing is though, the way the story turned out in Mockingjay, I think Katniss should've ended up alone. The Games fucked her life talaga. It's such a sad book. My friend Sab was right when she said it was a kids book that didn't quite end as a kids book.
After shooting with Mara, Leloy, Em and Sofi. I headed home and bummed. Read my magazine, uploaded and edited some photos, found out about a pitch and got on Vimeo again. I tried to watch Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy before going to bed but I ended up kind of not paying attention so much and was so tired. I turned it off an hour in and slept. I woke up at 8am this morning which means my sleeping patterns are fixed! I rewatched Tinker Tailor also from the top and it's really good. Acting is superb and the shots as well.
I'm still so happy about Ceremony.
