Music is my boyfriend

I have a saying that is somewhat bittersweet: if music were a religion, I'd be thoroughly devout.

Very bittersweet, indeed.

I. LOVE. MUSIC. I've never heard a genre of music I don't like, though there are, of course, genres I like more than others and some music I wouldn't continuously look out for. Such genres are hip-hop, country, and reggae, to name a few. But if I could list all of my favorite songs, having one song from each genre, I think you'd pretty much find almost every common music genre and then some. That's currently impossible, however, since there are a plethora of songs from newly discovered genres of which I have no idea what their names are!

I spend the great majority of my every day listening to music or hearing it in my head. Somehow I manage to find a way to focus on other things amiss that...but I'm not complaining! When not even listening to music cheers me up...there is something SERIOUSLY bothering me.

Bands/artists/musicians I'm currently obsessed over include (in no particular order):
  • Insane Clown Posse
  • Sopor Aeternus and the Ensemble of Shadows
  • Abney Park
  • Suicide Ali
  • Die Krupps
  • Paralysed Age
  • Spectrum X
...and I recently heard a song called Fires at Midnight by a band called Blackmore's Night my brother likes. *Smug* He owes me for corrupting introducing him into the music he likes now~

What I'm trying to get to is that I have a vocational therapist who took me to this old record store that has always been within walking distance from where I live. Hell, I've passed that place a million times and never even knew it was a place from my dreams! It really IS a record store, complete with old, retro gags and arcade games from the 80s!! Vinyl records galore! 80s music CDs galore! David Bowie! Siouxsie and the Banshees! Joy Division! AKSJALHSAM AND SO MUCH MORE. I felt like I was in bloody HEAVEN! I'll ne'er travel miles away to the mall again; I can just walk to this place for my music wonders!

And it's got CDs and DVDs, too (if that isn't somewhat obvious). I just may....may be able to find some more DVDs I want from there, too. Oh...speaking of which...after this, I plan to make a review of a movie I have recently fallen in love with...That, and also one of my newest obsessions who originated from the 80s...

Anyways, I just had to rave about this. I can't wait go go back! I might be able to work there during the summer, if all goes well!

...Can't keep this blog moody and selfish all the time...

  1. I know that this has nothing to do with this particular post, but some of your previous posts have gotten me interested in how Islam views body modifications, alternative appearance, etc. I stumbled upon an article about body mods, and the author also decides to mention cosmetics and style. She said, "I ask Allah to protect us from any deviation, and deviations that have been made to seem as norms and “cosmetics”. Unfortunately many Muslims are now imitating gothics in the way they dress, not knowing that imitating a group means you are part of them, as the prophet peace be upon him said." I was wondering if you could do a post about this, and about how your Muslim peers react your gothic style. Sorry for the long comment. Thanks. :)
