SOTD: Third Eye Blind ( @3eb ) - Jumper

I love this entire (eponymous) album. If you’ve never listened, I suggest you do so ASAP. (It contains the song Semi-Charmed Life, which you will recognise from the radio in the late ‘90s, although there will be some lyrics that you don’t recognise because apparently it wasn’t considered ‘done’ to play songs about how awesome crystal meth is on radio.)

This song in particular is just kind of perfect. I can't justify that exactly, but if you listen you'll know what I mean.

So, wow, it's been a while since I last updated. I have been legitimately busy, but I've also been a little in mourning. John Hughes and Les Paul and Allen Shellenberger all going in quick succession was a bit much, world.

On the day, I decided to make a playlist in honour of the music John Hughes used in his movies. The music was as much a part of the movies as the script, in many ways, as good soundtracks often are.

Here's to you, John Hughes. You shaped my childhood, and will be sorely missed. (We'll ignore the fact that you were responsible for Beethoven, including all of the sequels, since that's probably best left alone.)
