Book Review: War of Art by Steven Pressfield

Pressfield takes a touchy situation like procrastination and priests and gently shoves an enlightened lubricated lever up your tight ass.

Pressfield takes a touchy situation like procrastination and priests and gently shoves an enlightened lubricated lever up your tight ass. He speaks sweetly at first, pursuing you, telling you it is a good idea, he said. Sounds like a great idea, they said.  Personal resistances melt down into primordial soup and then evolve into several great ideas and intrinsic motivation. He maps out what it takes to make you a successful human being all while creativity flows freely from every orifice in your body–even macroscopic ones. This book is short, sweet, and calling it inspirational would be a major understatement. If you need a deliberate swift kick in your lower extremities I suggest obtaining a copy however you can. Your local library definitely has a copy so I suggest picking up a copy, especially if you have reached some sort of creative block or you are hoarding lack of motivation. Stop, collaborate, and listen to this review and obtain this book. If you are a butterfly in the sky, definitely take my word for it.

Shaking the Habitual, The Knife | Album Review

Published

on

By The Knife

Shaking the Habitual is something every person needs more of in life. Stepping outside of boundaries and entering a new experience can have a confounding effect on the senses. Rhythm and movement resonate from the deepest depths of the soul and project outward in an array of vibrancy. 

What starts off like a indigenous ceremony quickly changes to a post apocalyptic nuclear wasteland by the third track, “A Cherry on Top.” Then, finding semblance in a 19 minute interlude, “Old Dreams Waiting to Be Realized,” the brother-and-sister duo reemerge in ritualistic fashion with the deep bass line of “Raging Lung”. Ending with an unsettling aptitude, Fracking Fluid Injection precedes the final track, Ready to Lose; providing insight to a larger contextual effect this album has in a world seeming “Full of Fire.” 

Although difficult to fully embody the composition of electronic and aboriginal noise heard in The Knife’s new album, Shaking the Habitual, any movement to the music is sure to conjure emotion. At times, the May release represents a more archetypal sound in the art of music. 

Tying together components of old and new, the Swedish duo creates a spellbinding effect with the first track, A Tooth For an Eye. Amalgamating dominant instrumentations, subtle synth lines and underlying vocals, A Tooth For and Eye entices the listener with something seldom projected over the airwaves. 

Coming off a seven year hiatus, the duo can predominate with an electronic influence, but, ultimately the seamless transition across a spectrum of sound grasps the ear. Delivered in its entirety, the lasting impression might leave one feeling like a participant of a seance.
