Things giving me life:
1. Really good coffee that my mother-in-law sent me from Little Waves Coffee Roasters
2. The new Testament album
. I was never a huge fan of the classic '80s Testament albums, but they seem to really have retained an enthusiasm for playing thrash while getting better and more focused for the last 20 years. There's Gene Hoglan drumming and a lot of good riffs, but most of all, Titans of Creation has a real headbanging feel missing from even new that kind of new thrash that tries really hard to have an '80s feel. It's a more elusive feel than you'd think it would be.
