Art Of The Year (2018)
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
A brief recap of the most impactful art and entertainment I’ve consumed over the past year.
F.A.M.E. by Maluma
“Houstonfornication” is my personal favorite on the album. “YOSEMITE” is another classic, along with “Stop Trying to be God.”
I was never a huge Queen fan prior to watching this film, but after being captivated by the performances in the movie, I’m deeply appreciative of their catalog. I’m genuinely surprised by the lukewarm reviews, as I thought the entire piece was stellar, from the acting, to the script, and so on.
I played a good amount of video games from middle school through high school, and then took a break for the first two years of college.
Even when I picked up the PS4, I mainly played sports games with friends, and a few other casual FPS games (and GTA IV of course).
Pretty much everybody was obsessed with this game for the first half of 2018 and I was no different. No lie, for the entire spring semester, I would religiously play Fortnite for 2-3 hours almost every evening with friends.
Black Ops 4
My Fortnite craze tapered off a bit in the summer, and so did my gaming as I enjoyed my time at home before moving to D.C. for my internship. Even in the late summer/early fall I didn’t game much as I was getting accustomed to living on my own and working a full time job.
Black Ops 4 was what brought me back in to the fray. The last Call of Duty game I owned and played was Black Ops 2, so I was skeptical of jumping back in to the series. I saw a few positive reviews and gameplays early on, and gave it a shot. I do not regret it one bit. It’s the most fun I’ve had with an FPS since Titanfall 2.
