I was up until 5 this morning trying to find new music to listen to and get excited about. I’ve been re-writing the business card that I keep all my musical interests on so that when I go into a record store I’ll have the list to refer to so I don’t just stand there in the aisles thinking “what kind of music do I like?” So far, the system is thus: BLACK INK – bands that are still making music that I know I like and I have some albums of, and I’m just waiting to buy more albums. BLUE INK – soundtracks I need to pick up. TURQUOISE INK – bands I’m definitely interested in spending some quality time with at the listening station:
Eagles of Death Metal
Get Up Kids
Neutral Milk Hotel
PENCIL – bands I’m not solid gold sold on but I would consider hearing more:
Bloodhound Gang (there’s a lot of pseudo-rap from these guys online which I am not keen on at all, but other songs rock out)
As a result of my not getting to bed at a decent hour I missed out on Bon’s breakfast this morning and probably a few good garyardage sales. I did make it out at about 1:30 and checked out 3 sales, but all I came back with was an old copy of National Geographic. Luckily when I got back, somebody had chucked 4 magazines (various titles) in the recycling box in the foyer so I snatched them and I’m going to look at themmmmmm….
Don’t forget kids! Before you throw out those old mags, give me a ring-mail!
