Photography, as an art form, has seen many evolutions over the years. Far from the days of splicing film reels together, we've now entered an era of photo editing with such advanced tools that the possibilities are truly endless—almost too far in respects to Adobe Photoshop, my Photojournalism Professor would argue. While a part of me may have to agree with his "too far" sentiment, I must also admit that another part of me can only marvel in the endless special effects that we have at our disposal.
I had an interesting soccer career to say the least, but let me fill you in on some of the highlights. As you may already know, my first team—the "Red Team"—went an entire season without scoring a goal* (that lonely asterisk being an own goal). Goals would be netted in later years as we gained an understanding of why we were running up and down the pitch, but that all changed rather rapidly for young Sean when the field grew in size.
Ahhh youth soccer... those were the days. I'll never forget the first uniform I wore that was my own: A red uniform, far too large for my five-year-old body (the number escapes me at the moment). The "red team" would score zero goals that season—with the lone exception of an own goal. Seriously. That's a true story. Our only goal, for an entire season, was an own goal—and if you don't believe me, then just ask my mom. She'll tell the same old tale; but speaking of whom, she was the real MVP that season.
Be it about alcoholism or drinking just in good fun, alcohol consumption will always be a popular theme in music. The most timeless of these songs tend to be quite obviously about alcohol; however, not every drinking song is as obvious as "Drinking Song" by Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. Some tell a tale through poetic lyricism, others might be straightforward after a more concentrated listen, but most songs you didn't know were about drinking will, at the very least, hide its true colors beyond the title and take a true second listen to fully comprehend.
Have you ever listened to a new song and you could envision your own music video in your head? It happens to me all the time. Then the artist releases the official music video and it isn't quite what you imagined.
