My Secret Love For Music

I just noticed recently that I post very little about music on my blog. It kind of surprised me since music is a major part of my life. No I don’t play any instruments and I’m not in a choir (I wouldn’t want to force that kind of hell on anyone). I just listen to a lot of music. The only time I’m not listening to music is when I am watching TV though sometimes I listen to music and watch TV at the same time. I’m multi-talented that way.
Thinking about it I think I’m actually addicted to music, much like I’m addicted to information. I have around 600 CDs (which is way more than any human being should own), a ton of mixed casettes (which I listen I still listen to when I walk to school every morning) and over 100 records. I rarely ever listen to the radio and when I do I listen to the campus radio station or if I’m outside of their 10 kilometer broadcast range I listen to CFNY.
The CDs I own tend to be lesser known, non-airplayable bands, though I have found out that there are a lot of other bloggers who share my taste in music. The records I have tend to be more nostalgic than anything else. I do have some excellent records (ie. Peter Gabriel, Led Zepplin, Beatles, Stevie Wonder, the Beatles etc.) but I also have a lot of really bad funny albums (ie. Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Cyndi Lauper etc.). Most of them were under a buck so I don’t feel to bad about the crappy records since they were super cheap.
I’ve lost my line of thought. I will end this entry with something to think about:
If your happy and you want to be depressed listen to more Godspeed You Black Emperor. A beautiful nine-peice orchestral band from Montreal whose music is both eerily sad but beautiful at the same time.

    I’m a closet fan of Cyndi Lauper. Cyndi Lauper rocks! Or rocked. Depends on whether she’s still productive or not. Don’t think she is, though. So yeah. Cyndi Lauper r0x0r!!! Or something. And yes, today is posting stupid comment day in Firdaland. Well, actually, every day is posting stupid comment day in Firdaland. Oh nevermind…
