If you’re searching for music with a unique and fresh twist, Needtobreathe is what you’re looking for. I became a fan of Needtobreathe this summer, and I think The Outsiders is their best album. It’s their third album and was number 20 on the Billboard 200 chart when it was released last August.

The Top 5 Books To Be Seen Reading

Reading is a lot like sex. The more you do it the better you get.

In some ways though, reading is better.

A Day in the Life of a Super Senior

I am nearly half-way through my victory lap, or ninth semester in undergrad, and I can’t help but notice that there are several trends in my social life now that my graduation is well, over due.  (Like for instance-spending more weekends at home than I ever did before everyone else my age graduated.)

Top 5 Disney Songs

Remember the good old days when you could sit down with your friends and a bowl of popcorn and watch old Disney cartoons? When deadlines and tests didn’t bog you down and the only thing you had to do was sing along with Aladdin and Jasmine to “A Whole New World”?

In memory of the good old days of Disney, and to offer you a break from pressures of life, I would like to offer a list of the top 5 Disney songs of all time.

Latest Movie Sensation

Right, I should be saying goodbye like my fellow bloggers. I’m also graduating and moving on into the big people world. But I can’t.

Why? Because, hello, Iron Man 2 and Robin Hood just came out. After a year of reviewing movies and general entertainment, how I can let the newest and latest entertainment storm go by?

I can’t.

And I won’t.

Adieu, Adieu, to You and You and You

So even though I passed my master’s defense, and even though that technically means I’m sittin’ pretty and am done with school (FOR EV ER), I thought I’d throw up one last blog out of appreciation for those who’ve made it a point to read my writing.

Don’t cry for me, Unwind.

I’ve had an absolute blast with this little blog thing, and I hope each and every one of you who still frequents the site has enjoyed your time too. It’s a little insane to think I’ve held this gig for over a year now, fluctuating wildly in quality of posting but always aiming to publish something worth reading.

This is my last post for Unwind, and hopefully a decent cap to my education here at OU.

Finally, A New Literary Recommendation

Hello again, theoretical Unwind readers. 

As the semester comes to a close, I’m going to do something I haven’t done in a while–actually write about a book.  As you (likely don’t) know, I’ve largely written about bad films and other miscellaneous nonsense over the past few weeks.  But I’ve decided, in honor of my dwindling time here at Unwind, to actually do what I was hired to do instead of ramble on about nothing.  So, with that, I’d like to jump right in with the incredible Never Let Me Go by the Japanese-English novelist Kazuo Ishiguro.

Ima run away to Canada.

Lemee just give you a little insight into what the last school week looked like for me:

Monday: Woke up at some ungodly hour, studied, freaked out, studied, had a panic attack, studied, cried a little, studied, took my first comprehensive exam for graduate school.  (That means I wrote 13 pages on 15 sources, FROM MEMORY, in three hours.)

Tuesday: Tried to sleep in/avoid the universe, woke up, studied, studied, studied, freaked out a little, studied, skipped class to study, collapsed onto couch with a bag of Oreos and a strong desire to flee to Canada.

Wednesday:  Woke up at another ungodly hour, studied, freaked out so much that couldn’t study, ate Oreos and felt a little better, studied, picked a fight with Hunter so to avoid panic attack, studied, took my second comprehensive exam for graduate school.  (Wrote another 13 pages on 15 new sources, from memory, in three hours.)

Out of Season, but still Perfect

Next week’s Dead Week. Dun, dun, dun.

In theory, Dead Week is a “just-lay-back-and-review” sort of week. In reality, it’s all ten-page papers, final projects, and last-minute pleas for extra-credit.

So, how do you escape this stressful mania? Booze, drugs and mindless kid shows? Eh, that works. But, I suggest a Patch Adams approach and cure Dead Week with laughter.

Even better, my suggestion involves Christmas. So, not only are you relieved of stress but you’re also reminded of one of your (maybe) favorite holidays.

I recommend Santa Responds: He’s had enough and He’s writing back (written by the fat-man himself).
