I haven’t posted anything here for weeks, so you think for my triumphant return, I would have a myriad of opinions about everything pertaining to the sporting world or maybe even a preview of tomorrow night’s game.
I didn’t see a minute of the Bills game on Sunday and have watched about thirty seconds total of the last three or four Sabres games (but if anyone wants to talk about Albany Great Danes basketball, you know where to find me.) So I’m going to go out on a bit of a limb here and try something a little new.
Introducing “The Roost Recommends,” where we will tell you what to listen to, what to watch and what to avoid, because we’re pretentious pricks. I doubt this will be a regular thing, but we may do it a little more often depending on the response we get.
The Roost Recommends…
It has taken me a couple of listens, but I think it’s pretty good. While there are a couple of clunkers (feel free to skip past “Sink Ships” and “Like Yesterday”,) it is a relatively easy listen that spans a variety of genres. “Born into a Light,” the opening track, sounds like it could have been on Easy Tiger, Adams’ 2007 release,” while a song like “Magick” sounds like an arena-rock hit.
Good: “Cobwebs” is an awesome track and “Stop” is an excellent closer. Appeals to a variety of genres.
Bad: It’s short and a few tracks seem like filler.
Verdict: Worth picking up.
The Roost Recommends…
Chris got me hooked on 30 Rock a few episodes into the second season, and I proceeded to watch the entire first season in about 3 days. The characters are hilarious (Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan are incredible,) the writing is smart and witty, and there are a ton of guest stars (Oprah, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Martin) this season that should add to the show (though Chris disagrees.)
It amazes me that ratings are so atrocious for this show. There’s a decent amount of star power (Tina Fey is huge right now,) it gets all of the critical acclaim in the world, and it probably will still get canceled because no one is watching, which seems to happen to all of the shows I begin to obsess over (Titus, anyone?)
The season premiere is on Thursday at 9 on NBC (You Time Warner subscribers still get that channel, no?,) but you can watch it at Hulu.com now.
