I used to hate reading, but recently I've been picking it up again. I mostly read books that have information rather than stories, but I do occasionally read fantasy and classics. I've only just started reading again though, so don't expect an epic book-list from me
Ohh I see. Yeah whenever I buy music I usually end up loving the whole album. But I definitely see where you're coming from, a lot of stuff only has 1 or 2 good songs on the whole album. That is, unless you're like me and look really hard. ;P
Btw, that album I linked you to comes out tomorrow!!! <3333 *throws party*
Um... I'm not really into bands, I just pick and choose songs hehe. Bands that I listen to regularly are ones that nobody likes, such as Kamelot and Linkin Park. And thanks for teh link, I'm gonna look into this band especially. Got a lot of cool stuff there
Hmm, that music might be worth checking into. I can understand the vocalist, and that makes it worth listening to haha. Techno is cool when I'm working out, but it bores me if I'm just listening to it. And I understand (or, at least I'll pretend to) about the country: it's really hard to find good country music. Most of the good "country" isn't even country really. Same with music pre-90's too: my family likes older music, but I've never gotten into it especially the 80's.
I'm into the post-hardcore/alternative scene yo. I be all gangsta like that up in da hood. lol not. I tend to like underground bands too, much better than overplayed radio crap. Most of the stuff I listen to you've probably never heard of.
But yeah, bands like Saosin and Story of the Year and Secret and Whisper (my favorite) really get my blood pumping. I actually like screaming, but my one rule is you have to be able to understand what they're saying when they scream. lol. A good example of my kind of screamo is Yashin, although they're kinda pop-punkish. Check out Of Machines too. One thing I really love is when they have an awesome lead singer and a screamer trade off throughout the song.
The best lyricist I have ever heard of imo is Kevin Matisyn. He sand for the first two albums by Evans Blue and now he's in Parabelle. His lyrics are a little dark but it's just amazing. I love poetic lyrics, they're one of the first things I look for in music.
I also have a side ear fetish with techno. 8D I grew up on country, but I really dislike most of it and it's gone wayyy downhill over the past decade. I miss the stuff from the 90's. I tend to not like music from decades prior to the 90's, but there is some stuff I do like, I'm just choosy.
If I had to go with a rule of thumb for picking music between genres, I love stuff that's energetic and driving and ambient. Stuff that plucks you up in the air and puts you on cloud nine or on a different planet.
Yeah, it's a bit weird that I don't IM, but whatever I don't do a lot of things for weird reasons...
And, as far as music goes, I go for anything that isn't rap or really heavy metal. Metal's fine, but when the singer's doing nothing but screaming, I'm having a hard time liking it lol. What about you?
Nah it's all good, lol. no offense taken. Although I can't say I understand your viewpoint on it. lol. Honestly, you really should open up to it, I think. I mean I get not trusting someone you just met, obviously, but an IM isn't much of a step higher than us VMing right now. But it's cool with me if you'd rather not. Just sayin'.
As for this newfangled chatting thing all the kids are doing these days (lol) what kind of music do you like?
Sorry, I'm not much of an online guy. I don't mind talking to people here, but I hope it doesn't offend you when I say I would rather keep it to this site. I only chat with RL friends as a rule.
Yeah, I'm not involved in political issues (healthcare and stuff, honestly I just don't understand it 80% of the time), but when it comes to MORAL issues (abortion, homosexuality), I start getting mad at anyone that disagrees with me. I try to stay away from internet discussions on these issues anyways: I have yet to convince a person to change their view, so I think it's a waste of time. You might have better luck, but I only argue IRL
I personally consider myself Libertarian, but in reality I'm more in the middle between conservative and Libertarian. At least I'm not Liberal though I think I have at least very similar views on issues as you do, but I'm not one to debate about it online. I cheer you on in your efforts though, if that means anything...
So yeah, if I'm online though, I'm up for chatting with you. If I'm nothing more, you can rant to me about everyone that angers you.
lol does that mean I can bother you more often??? XD And yeah man, it's definitely a pleasure. I never meet many mormons online with the same interests I have; most of the time when I go on these online places I get surrounded by liberal atheists who think ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING IS OK. D=
You should get an MSN messenger account. We can talk much more that way. =P
But yeah I'm Mr. superconservative over here while the rest of the place is swarming with liberals who can't make effective arguments. lolz. If you say homosexual acts are wrong on here you can expect to be flamed. They get all whiny about it. Heaven forbid they actually have to change their lifestyle like everyone else does with every other type of sin. So they try to trick everyone into thinking it's acceptable when it contradicts nature. But meh. They're only screwing themselves over anyway.
