Grudges

Wow, so I'm really sorry that's it been a long time since I've posted. I've been crazy busy with just like everything. And to make matters worse, I'm still busy, so all I'll be posting a link to smugmug and that's it. As for "Grudge" it is my favorite track on an album I liked, "After Laughter" by Paramore, but it certainly didn't hold up to their previous works. That could change with more listens, however. It often does.

The photos from this smugmug link are events from May 18-31: https://ecmpublishers.smugmug.com/MorrisonCountyRecord/Sports/Sports-May-18-May31/i-FvGgPTr

Swish Swish

It's been a couple weeks, so I have a ton of photos to share, but no time to share them individually. A link to our Smugmug will have to do.

 May 4-9: https://ecmpublishers.smugmug.com/MorrisonCountyRecord/Sports/Sports-May-4-9/

May 11-16: https://ecmpublishers.smugmug.com/MorrisonCountyRecord/Sports/Sports-May-11-16/i-B2x3vL8 

 Katy Perry has a new look and a new sound, and I totally dig them both. "Swish Swish" is admittedly a bit clunky, but it's about Taylor Swift beef, so I can't argue with it too much.

Told You So

I've been a big fan of Paramore since the first time I heard "Misery Business." Since, I've shuffled between all of their albums numerous times. I really enjoyed their self-titled album that came out in 2013. After listening to a recently released single, "Told You So," I'm excited for their next album, which is set to debut in a few days. The song is catchy as always and includes that raw Paramore emotion delivered to perfection by Hayley Williams. There will probably more gushing next week after the album comes out. Stay tuned.

I have a good number of photos to share this week, as always please go to https://ecmpublishers.smugmug.com/MorrisonCountyRecord/Sports to purchase any of these.

Ascension

More like descent. Despite the opening track ft. Vince Staples being the best in Gorillaz' new album, "Humanz," after a long hiatus, it certainly didn't do enough to elevate the album to being anything that could even be construed as good. I've always felt like Gorillaz was a poor man's Daft Punk. This effort has dropped them to the brink of a homeless man's Daft Punk. Another song ft. Staples also stood out as somewhat listenable in "Let Me Out." But really, it was just Staples shining. It certainly was a good choice for them to include him, or this album would be wholly worthless. Also, this isn't the 90's, stop with using a 'z' as an 's.'

I have more than two-dozen photos from events that took place between April 20-25. Enjoy. Purchase any of these photos at here.
