January: A generally sad, dreary month. Post-Christmas depression, cold weather and midterms tend to weigh students down around this time.

A few pieces of brilliant media did, however, manage to help me survive this month until now, and I recommend all these to those who are looking for something entertaining.

  1. With Love and Squalor, the album from We Are Scientists. Though this is a relatively old album, I did not discover it or the band until this month. We Are Scientists became mainstream with the release of this, their second album, in 2005, but are still not very well known to listeners of popular music around the school. I reccomend the songs, The Great Escape and Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt.
  2. Avatar, James Cameron’s epic film. I’ll make this short. I know that by now most people have already seen or at least heard about it, but if not this is a must see movie. The special effects are amazing, and the story well crafted. Rated PG-13.
  3. Sherlock Holmes, the movie. An excellent film. Read my previous post for an in-depth review. Rated PG-13.
  4. Assassins Creed 2, video game. This is an amazing game which has many options of gameplay and an engaging storyline. Assassins Creed 2 is set in Rennisiance Italy and has a very detailed and interactive. Action scenes are brutal and the sub-scenes (flying a pair of machanical wings over Venice) are fun and interactive. Rated M for mature.
