Kristopher James -- Movement: 1

I'm too drunk to be coherent but I'm also too drunk to go out and do things. This is Teacher Life (a new tag!), people. The Friday after Regents week = shitfaced by 7 PM.

So the TL;DR is Kristopher James' EP is gorgeous and really should speak for itself.

But you come here in part -- presumably -- for my brilliant genius writing. So I'll say that while James' vocals are soulful and his lyrics are as precise as they are cutting, I'm most impressed "Where Is Your Sting." Death scares the shit out of me (drunk confession?) but James' bold approach and eloquent imagery makes me think I should change my approach:

Sometimes life feels just so God dammed, that we welcome the tilt of the drink
But Death like the friend, who leads you back home, rests with you there while you dream

Oh, Death where is your sting?
I'll be ready, my friend, in the end.
So have a drink until then.

Death's an adventure every man needs to face, to look past the peak of unknown.
But I can't see past this day that I'm living ... and I'm not really ready to go home. 

On the other hand, I really prefer having a bunch of drinks with coworkers than the absence of existence (amirite?) So at the end of the day, the jury's still out on my feelings about death. But my feelings about James are pretty clear -- what a talent! You can pay what you want for the EP, but what you want to pay is > 100 pennies in US currency so we can make sure we get a Movement: 2 sooner rather than later.
