Not featured is the book I somehow forgot about, Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu.
This is the first video I've shared in a while, but it's the one of Poets of the Fall's latest releases "Choice Millionaire". I actually really like the mood and setting for this video. These guys never fail to amaze me as to how creative they can be, both lyrically and artistically for visual aesthetics in their videos.
And I'm still listening to their album "Jealous Gods" as I'm typing this. Oddly enough, I've had more than a few Poets songs in my head as fuel for creativity penning my writing projects.
I read Free to Fall by Lauren Miller over the weekend, which had a very interesting premise — complete reliance on a handheld device that made all the decisions for for its owner. What drink should you get at a coffee shop? Which topic should you pick for your term paper? Did you have enough time to talk to your friend before your next class?
These ideas about the integration of smartphones into our lives is a very pertinent issue today. Set in 2030, this book visits a possible future that would make me shudder. Yet it is fascinating what kind of an impact technology can have on humanity. Also, who is ultimately in control?
Anyone who has ever asked these questions might be interested in checking out Free to Fall. I'll be posting my book review in the coming days.
