Kaskade released his seventh studio album “Fire & Ice” a day and 44 minutes early.  The original release date was supposed to be October 25, but was pushed forward to the 24th to “accommodate iTunes’s busy release schedule.”  Kaskade apparently was just too antsy though to wait until midnight, releasing the album for download 44 minutes before the clock struck twelve.  Let’s hope for Cinderella’s sake, she got home in time.

This album is bliss.  Pure bliss.

The album is divided into two disks.  Disk one, titled “Fire,” sets the tone of the original tracks on the album. Kaskade collaborates with artists such as Skrillex, Neon Trees, Quadron and more. Then, just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, BAM!, there’s a second disk.  The second disk is titled “Ice.” This disk takes every track on “Fire” and gives it a Kaskade ICE Mix.

One surprise of my senior year has been all the exciting events happening on campus and in the city of Syracuse. Let me tell you, I know I’m having an awesome time my senior year so far, and I’m sure the rest of you guys are too.

It started with Day Glow, then Juice JamCuse Crawl and Tiesto followed; next month Skrillex will be coming to town as well. It seems house/trance music is finally having its moment here in Syracuse, and I am definitely lucky and thrilled that I am able to enjoy such moments here in my last year.

In addition to all the parties, the fact that I am part of the Jerk blogging team this year, as well as writing for College Fashionista, has given me a chance to look back on my college career and be grateful that I am actively part of SU. My previous years only consisted of volunteering and joining a couple clubs, but I never really took genuine interest in them.

I just want to say it’s not too late for us seniors to join a club or activity, especially if it’s for something you really love and care about. Make sure to take advantage of this school’s resources while you can, before we graduate, and before it becomes too late.
