“I was so in love with you, with what people do to me and you”
Evolution – The process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth.
When an upcoming record – from an artist you have known for some time – is to be released, there’s a thrill of excitement that runs through you, a feeling of elation. Having no idea what to expect, you try to prepare yourself for what’s to come, by listening to that artist’s previous records and singles. You hope the latest album surpasses the former, but resign yourself to only accept the newest complication if it’s as good as its predecessor. When you finally are able to hold that record in your hand – see it waiting for you in your iTunes library – that feeling of elation transforms into nervousness. You try to delay the inevitable, sorting through several (good and bad) scenarios in your mind, knowing that you’ll receive no peace until your headphones are securely in place and the first track is running through your ears. In most cases, your anxiety is unfounded, but somehow warranted. Sometimes, it is well founded and is quite disappointing. In rare instances, it should have never existed – the album going above and beyond your expectations. When my Wishbone experience began two weeks ago, I had no idea I would be left in complete and utter shock.
