Alright, I realize I typically stick up AN ENTIRE MIX for the Monthly Music Post, and since I'm in a weird mood and I've whined enough, SECOND PART. Only now with more older stuff.

Basically, favorite albums from when I first started listening to music with words, which meant when I was about twelve. I was pretty stuck on classical until then. Because of that, I'm not including Vanessa-Mae's The Violin Player, Peter Gabriel's soundtrack for The Last Temptation of Christ, or whatever else I used to ease myself out of just instrumentals and movie soundtracks. Also, no Madonna, even though I liked her, because I didn't have any of her albums, I just watched her on MTV.

Yes, I was influence by pop radio at first, can't you tell?

Ben Folds Five, Whatever and Ever Amen )

Tal Bachman, Self-Titled )

Third Eye Blind, Self-Titled )

Sheryl Crow, Self-Titled )

Natalie Imbruglia, Left of the Middle )

Styx, Kilroy Was Here )

Honorable Mentions (mostly because they're not on my computer because my parents or sister stole them):
Meatloaf, Bat Out of Hell ("Would you give your throat to the wolf with the red roses?" Oh god, that STILL MAKES ME TINGLY, that bit. I didn't actually ever listen to the song that went with that, just the intro convo)
Jethro Tull, Thick As A Brick (the hippie music I DID like)
Aqua, Aquarium (WHO DIDN'T HAVE THIS?)
Chumbawamba, Self-Titled (ditto)
Savage Garden, Self-Titled (OMG THE GAY... HOW COULD I HAVE NOT KNOWN?)
R.E.M., Monster (very jangly and I liked that)

P.S. results from that meme I put up before )

How about some commentary on some of the newer albums I've gotten recently? Good music makes me happy and since I can focus on writing text again (hey, sleeping all day clearly helped somewhat!). I'd work on my poem, but eh, not coming to me. Need happy boost.

So on with the show.

Tori Amos, American Doll Posse )

Jake Shimabukuro, Gently Weeps )

Blonde Redhead, Misery is a Butterfly )

She & Him, Volume One )

Sneaker Pimps, Bloodsport )

Venetian Snares, Detrimentalist! )

Alright, I've discovered the design flaw in lockable bathrooms. You can totally lock your keys in. As I discovered at 7 am this morning.

Yeah, let's not do that again.

I'm mostly working on a lab report and prepping myself for IR, which is kind of like a carnival of companies come to recruit people. A job fair of sorts, I suppose. We'll see how handing out resumes goes. I'm going on a strict policy that if they ask for my GPA, I will ask them why they want it. Yes, that may sound, well, arrogant, but I am principled, and really don't think that my extremely hard earned GPA is any worse than someone else's higher one. My dad backs me up on this, and really, I am curious as to why an arbitrary number would cause them to filter me out, when I've had more job experience than most of the kids, and definitely more life experience. Egads, the amount of life experience I managed to stuff into five years is kind of freaky.

Ha, almost went off on a rant there. I'll spare you. I'm just pretty confident in my abilities these days, and just because I can't take tests--which reflect nothing in the real world in my type of field, unless I was say, a pilot--doesn't mean that I should be automatically rejected.

God, I am my father.

For fun things, I'm using a meme instead of a mixtape this month, since muxtape is still down and for the life of me I couldn't think up a decent theme.

10 songs you're into right now )

So this month's theme, since it's August, which means Otakon and school starting for me is get up: dance like you mean it. It's shorter because the songs are longer and two wouldn't upload for some weird unexplainable reason. This is where my status as a child of the 80s is glaringly obvious.

if it's against the law arrest me )

So this month's theme, since it's July and my mom's birthday is this month and she likes nautical things is out to sea: fickle as the tide. This has a slight progression/story to it, if you can catch it.

there's a mutiny brewing inside of me now )

So this month's theme, since it's June and it makes me think of wandering the theme is epic travel: go on and get lost.

two friends, off to see the world )

Alright, so I've wanted to start doing these, because I like music a lot. And since I discovered muxtape which lets me up stuff for streaming, I like this very much. The interface is spare and nice and you may want to make sure that your headphones/speakers are down at first because I'm not sure how loud it'll be and it doesn't have volume control. Also, since I can't seem to be doing anything productive at all either, I figured I'd write up stuff to go with it. I'd like to for every month, but you never know.

So this month's theme, since it's May (well, in a few days) and I like playing with the idea of May/December is lost along the way: angst for those with some years under their belts. Yes, I like irony.

old soul is a misleading term )
