I've been listening to (parts) of Janet Jackson's new album Discipline for awhile now, but the album is just starting to come to fruition for me. Namely, the track "LUV." It's a shimmery, bouncy song with just the right volume for her voice (which, while extremely recognizable, is also extremely thin). "Rollercoaster" is also great, if you don't mind that it isn't radio-friendly. A big dissapointment is "2nite," which Rolling Stone liked for some odd reason. The production values are remarkably low compared to the rest of the album.
Bully: Scholarship Edition on Xbox 360 is a total blast. I love Rockstar, but this game (designed by the Vancouver branch) is a really unique take on the free-roaming, beat-up-everything genre that GTA: III created. The characters in the game seem to, well, act. It's creepy but riveting to watch a poorly pixelated animated character speak and move in a convincingly human way. Gary, your arch-enemy in the game, delivers some top-notch lines like "It's sink or swim, Jimmy. If you can swim, you have to let the losers drown." YES.
On a more personal note, it's really nice that the weekend is finally here. Time is a two-part gift for me: on one hand, I always have things to look forward to. On the other hand, life seems to move so fast.
