Who flipped the switch on me?


What is the meaning of this? Everything is different and weird! What happened to the good ol’ days? I swear, the last time that I told Doc Brown I’d help him, I just had a headache. Now I’m stuck in an unfamiliar time! How do I get back to a time where things make sense, and gas was less than a dollar a gallon? How am I supposed to fill up this DeLorean?!

Hmm, perhaps I should calm down just a bit. I’m probably doing that thing that I was advised against (allowing my imagination to get away from me).  I won’t tell my doctor if you don’t… Deal? Good. Thanks, you’re the best… Music 1

I’ve hit the age of 30 (despite my best chances to hurt myself through interesting shenanigans). I have entered that time in life where it’s fun to just go back in time and reminisce about days past. I seem to remember that music was much better back in my day (am I already subject to THAT phrase being a true identification device? I feel so old.) I have neglected to voluntarily listen to the radio for the past 3 years. What have I missed? Apparently, not that much. I hear so much shade being thrown at artists, because they do not fit the mold of what someone holds “real music” to be. Apparently while I was sleeping, someone performed a procedure on me that turned me into my parents. I would rather hold on to the music of my generation, than try to stay invested in the trends/groups of today (Sorry namesake Beiber, I just can’t). But hey, isn’t that what that iPod is for? I can stay oblivious to these things and keep the rest of the outside world blissfully ignorant of the fact that I’m grooving to glee (yup, no shame there).

All forthcoming jokes about glee aside, I think that there are some people making good strides towards great music. If you’ve ever met me, you know of my (potentially) unhealthy obsession with Sara Bareilles. I’m a hardcore fan of 90s r&b and hip hop, but I have also been trying to expand my narrow musical horizons. I have latched onto Ingrid Michaelson and Regina Spektor, in addition to checking out The Black Keys. By listing these people, I have some how proven myself to be open to things ;). My biggest fear is being sucked into familiarity within music, and not being able to give anyone new a chance, as I fear that they “don’t make music like they used to”. This is true, some people are definitely trying to push the envelope. Just gotta give them a chance…
