throwback win

so the other day i was driving to and from a vet appointment for Albus and i started hankering for some rock. like, seriously hard ANGRY rock. and who better to scratch that itch than Rage Against the Machine? throwback, i know. but such a good throwback.

so as i'm listening to the whole Anti Establishment scene, i realized something. this was the exact compliment for the book i was reading.

and THEN i remembered a certain blogger who gives structure to this phenomenon.

again, i have the lovely Ginger to thank.

as someone who has an equal adoration for music and books, Ginger has paired these loves and generated some sweet discussion.

check out the other Tune in Tuesdays over at her link up.

this week, i'm reading Divergent by Veronica Roth. as many of you have probably heard, Divergent is getting a lot of buzz. it's the first of a dystopian trilogy set in Chicago. my review is coming later this week, but in short - i am LOVING it. Divergent is totally worth the buzz it's getting.

so when i was listening to RAtM today, i realized that the in-your-face lyrics of Zack de la Rocha and the heavy beats and the cutting guitar from Tom Morello are the perfect compliment for Divergent. Divergent and RAtM both have a heavy industrial feel, a justifiably angry feel, and both are trying to speak truth in a crazy world.

it's not often that the music and book pairing just COMES to me, but when the pairing is as natural and well-fitted as this one, i can't help but share it.  

seriously, listen to this and tell me this doesn't scream dystopia to you. literally, with the screaming.

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.
