I've pretty much boycotted every major music radio station in California.

I hate the radio (keep in mind, I'm talking about traditional radio here, not online radio). They usually don't play anything good, let alone anything you want. And I hear to this day radio stations are anal about doing anything that even comes close to playing a wide variety of bands...just the bands that'll net them the most money.

Here's a nice little tidbit I picked up a while ago: next time the station is playing some Top 40 drivel, emo, butt-rock (Linkin Park, Nickelback, Maroon 5, Coldplay, etc), gangsta rap, fake "metal" (Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, Avenged Sevenfold), pop nonsense, or anything else that's guaranteed to net in MTV watchers, take careful note of the time. Listen to that same station the next day and more often than not, you'll hear the exact same song within 20-30 minutes of the time you noted down the previous day.

I'll stick to using Spotify, putting in playlists I've made personally, or CD's I've bought that kick ass.

          I agree. I actually used to have a turtle who lived in my room and you could hear this waterfall inside the tank every night when you went to bed. :3 It was really soothing.

          I just love sleeping when it's raining. The rhythmic pattern of the falling rain is a source of great relaxation. My brother, on the other hand, thinks rain is noisy though. Noisy? How could he call nature's most relaxing sound noisy?!

          Rain is pretty relaxing as long as you are inside. i hate to get all wet and having to carry an umbrella with me when it's raining outside...

            I like it even when its raining outside. Going outside and getting all wet is fun, as long as you have a change of clothes of course.

            I love the rain, especially when they're torrential and...thundery? Yup, I love thunderstorms, and the more rare Canadian variant, the thundersnowstorm. =3

            Though of course I like them much better when I'm sitting on the porch, protected from getting drenched. I love the sound and the smell, and those are hard to appreciate when you're submerged in it.

            I don't like thunderstorms. Since I was a kid, thunder always scared me.

            God I get so scared of thunder. If I'm sleeping it almost always wakes me up.

            Rain and thunder... I haven't seen those in a few months... I feel isolated from summer because of winter :'[

            Oh, and good morning everybody! ヽ(゜∇゜)ノ

            I always love to see the first thunderstorm of the season, usually around April or May. It lets me know that spring is here. =3

              I don't mind thunderstorms that much, to be honest, although most start in May. We've had some pretty bad ones here, but I've never had one during the winter. I'd love to see that.

                  The night is now quite cooling after this rain in my area. A big welcome from the humid hotness of just now's afternoon. n_n

                  Thunderstorms here just signify the rainy season. Loads of thunderstorms during the monsoon season, especially near the coast, so it's not a good idea to go for holidays to the beaches around that time.

                  Ahh~ Listening to some piano pieces by Richard Clayderman. Man, his pieces are soo good~~

                    It's really nice after a really hot day to have some rain to cool things off. We don't get enough rain here, making it hard for farmers.
