Review: Vacation - Bomb the Music Industry!

Written by Enoch Kim(@ProCreateEnoch)

So getting personal here, winter’s been pretty crap for me. I’ve been feeling depression, I burned bridges with some assholes I once called friends, I’ve been feeling especially demotivated to finish work (I’m writing this on the Sunday this is supposed to come out). Most of all, I’ve been feeling of winter. I usually love the mild cold in California but the rain, the grey clouds, the grueling routine’s been getting to me. And I miss summer and all its hot humid weather and long days of doing fuck-all with friends.

So I guess that’s why lately Vacation by Bomb the Music Industry!’s been really relatable for me. BtMI’s last album before signing off this past month, I’ve been listening to it non-stop for months now and it’s because it so perfectly encapsulates summer.

Vacation is definitely a summer album but when “summer album” comes to mind I usually think happy, laid back beats and lighthearted lyrics. Because that’s what summer’s about right? Kicking back and having fun with your friends? I mean, I guess ideally but my summer’s always been messier than how Will Smith describes his.

From the first track, frontman Jeff Rosenstock describes a day when he rode out to the post office on his newly repaired bike and then got hit by a car on the way, brutally scraping his knee, and musing that if we complained about every little thing (though this is quite the “little thing”) we’d miss out on anything nice. You gotta go through a couple scraped knees for your summer. That’s the message around Vacation. Backed by Weezer-esque production, Rosenstock talks about a lot of bummer shit. Suicide, losing contact with your loved-ones, growing up how all that really entails is having to pay bills, memories of being bullied and shoved away by who you looked to, irritating your best friends with your fuck ups.

ok this happened on tour after Vacation but shut up.

But Rosenstock never makes it feel like a bummerfest because hey that’s summer. man. Summer’s not three whole months of laziness and fun, it’s got its shit moments and Rosenstock not only acknowledges it but fights through it. Everybody That You Love is about having fun while trying to be a less shitty dude, in Hurricane Waves Rosenstock is determined to have fun on the beach despite his depression and sickness, and amongst the surf-guitar laden tracks, the quiet-then-bombastic track The Shit That You Hate is a loud, sloppy, and poignant “FUCK YOU” to negativity and cynicism.

Of course all this would be for nothing if Jeff Rosenstock didn’t have his way with words, and Vacation has some of the best lyricism in the BtMI discography. Using sloppy vocals as a metaphor for losing your touch in things you’re supposed to good at (Vocal Coach) is absolutely brilliant, Why, Oh Why, Oh Why (Oh Oh Oh Oh) perfectly paints the shit from all your high school friends leaving you behind coming back to hurt you years later, and it can’t be properly described how well Rosenstock’s story in the opener Campaign For A Better Next Weekend defines summer.

The last track, Felt Just Like Vacation, deserves special mention because there could’ve been no better way to finish this album. It validates the album, really because it’s a song about how it’s all worth it. The depression and loneliness and pain is all worth it because your friends are there to love you and get you through it all. November-April is a slogfest to wade through because those four fucking months make the whole shitty year worth it. Because summer’s not just about the fun. It’s about the long talks into the morning with your friends, it’s about picking each other up when we get knocked down. And it’s all to keep me and them and us alive. Those last words “So the winter never kills me.” makes me tear every single time. It’s become my war cry, my call to get through the rest of this year between all the depression and burned bridges.

Because summer’s just around the corner...

You are soooooo adrobale, Janie! Your playful nuances and mannerisms reach out through the video, so it feels like you're sitting right across from me and wow, your hair looks a bit like mine in texture and color (I colored my lighter blonde hair dark blonde recently and may even go brunette yikes, my natural hair color I last showed back in 8th grade). Well, I think your new do is much a do about nothin', and although it looks like our girl's gonna have sum splainin to do I'm sure she'll creatively manage the hairy situation with her usually smooth style. Luv ya, babes xxoo xxoo

No matter how you do it, losing weight is an individual thing. Friends can help you but they can't lose the weight for you. You've got to take charge of your weight loss from the beginning if you want to get serious about losing weight. The following tips will help.

Some people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse.

The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water.

The diet pills speed up the metabolic processes. This is the key factor that leads to the burning of all the fats in the body. This means that one passes out lots of urine, which subsequently leads to dehydration. It is imperative that the user take lots of water round the clock. This will help curb dehydration, which can lead to health problems. In addition to that, water offers the required medium for the function of the nutrients and elimination of the fats.

When buying the review of diet pills, it is imperative that one gets the most recommended dose. People tend to compromise the quality and effectiveness of the tablets due to the variation in cost. The low priced pills depict poor quality, which means their effectiveness is not reliable. Some have also been found to cause health problems. The dose should also be taken as recommended. Over dose will not speed up the process but rather lead to complication. This will increase risk of side effects. If the taking of the pill is forgotten, do not take more to compensate for the lost time.

The diet plan enclosed with the diet pills has also to be followed. According to the requirements, the termination of the diet must be done even with no results. This means your body is irresponsive.

Doctor Who is now considered a British Institute and has come a long way since it first aired on November 23rd 1963. The very first show saw the Doctor travel 100,00 years into the past to help some dim cavemen discover light. After 26 seasons and seven Doctors later the series came off our screens in 1989 much to the disappointment of the huge devoted fanbase. In 1996 an attempt was made to revive Doctor Who but it wasnt until June 2005 when it came back with a vengeance with Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Doctor that put the series back on the map as it were. It then went on for 5 years with David Tenant portraying the Doctor until 2010 when Matt Smith took over the role. Today it is still a great family show and has attracted many new fans.

In 2XXX, on the Starfleet Azurus, a monster has emerged from it's cryogenic chamber.  The alarm rings throughout the ship but it is too late. The beast rampages through the Starfleet leaving death in it's wake.  Now having destroyed the entire crew, the monster is the master of the Starfleet Azurus.  It is  loud, enourmous, and likes to review music on it's free time.

It's name is Enoch Kim.
