LISTENING
_
album Beyoncé - BEYONCÉ
Her surprise album is cohesive, just the right amount of deep, a bit dirty and totally solid.
album John Grant - Pale Green Ghosts
Heavy duty 'lectronic songwritery intense melodic solidness. A favorite from 2013.
album Vampire Weekend- Modern Vampires of the City
This is on a more than a few best of lists. It's another album I like all the way through that gets better with repeat spins.
album Lorde - Pure Heroine
I can listen to this whole album (usually skipping Royals) over and over and over. Super digging her first EP to boot.
album Kim Deal - Are You Mine?
Kim put out another single and this one is my favorite.
album Belle Mare - The Boat of the Fragile Mind
This is just a single, but it's haunting and just oozing with a perverse love. (via Chirp)


READING
_
book The Goldfinch
Donna Tartt
When my friend Zan wrote “Emotional spoiler alert: the last seven pages of The Goldfinch WRECKED ME. Philosophically wounding truths.” I had to buy this book. Reading it now.
book These Days
Jack Cheng
Just finished reading this story of love and life and technology. My copy now complete with dog-eared pages and phone-snapped passages along the way. It resonated and in some fashion, inspired me.


PLAYING
_

game Super Mario 3D World
The WiiU finally has a game that makes ownership truly worth it. This is the funnest Mario game in years, and multiplayer works for the first time ever.
game Zelda : A Link Between Worlds
The right blend of old and new. A great reason to dust off the 3DS.
game The Last of Us
After reading all the year end praise, I picked up a used copy and am preparing myself to get freaked out. (PS3)
game Zelda Wind Waker HD
It's weird playing a game some years later in higher resolution, but they changed the color palette and I don't like it as much. I also have no brian capacity anymore to get through these games without relying on guides. (WiiU)
game Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus
Just like all the others, just shorter. I've always been a fan of this series, and though the weapons aren't as fun this time around, it's enjoable. (PS3)
game Castle of Illusion with Mickey Mouse
SEGA reimagined this old platformer with fancy new graphics and frankly? Kind of hard gameplay. But it's keeping me engaged. (PS3)
game Rayman Origins
Ubisoft is making some beautiful games, and this one is among them. The Rayman series is great and this is a superfine installment. (PS3)
game Tomb Raider
This origin story reboot is fantastic. A most intense and exciting game. Excellent in all regards. Do I wish it was longer? Sure. But it was great fun every single minute. So. Awesome. (PS3)
