Time for a new sountrack

      For a while, I have been in this weird transition state between music phases. I moved out of the foreign cultural music genre and for a month or two just casually listened to what was out there, hoping that something would catch my attention. No luck. Just artist after artist. Truthfully, I have been listening to a lot of relaxing piano music and Jason Mraz. Piano music, for the reason that it calms me and puts me into a certain mood that I need for positive thinking and creative writing. Jason Mraz, because I believe that his music is colorful and has a inexplicable smoothness about it. But, it's about that time to move on to something more concrete. This time it going to be Alternative Pop.
      I have already deleted all the songs I downloaded in the past couple of months and look at my iTunes, it's as clean as a whistle. Whether or not that was a good idea, I think by doing this, I am forcing myself to open my mind to new artists and songs that you are not likely to listen to on the radio.
I am in the process of downloading the complete discography of the following artists:
Mat Kearney
Matt Werst
Matt Nathanson
(Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt)
Jon Mclaughlin
Josh Kelley
Greg Laswell
Graham Colton
      Yes, I said complete discography. So, what will I do with all those CDs in the car? That's a good question. I Dunno. I'll probably buy a CD binder to organize them in and leave it in the dashboard just in case a curious someone wants to rummage through. Lol. Yeah, I still use CDs. Sometimes my friends make fun of me because I still use CDs instead of the iPod I own. I don't know what it is but I like the idea of owning the original discs. A good deal of money (perspective of a college student) was spent on buying them even though I knew all about torrents and free internet downloads. As you can see, I am a bit old school. Nevertheless, I am legitimately excited and can't wait to make these CDs to musically resonate the car with new tunes.

  1. I'm with you about CD's. It amazes me that no ones wants to own a hard copy of anything anymore. Am I the only one that watches Sci-Fi movies and TV shows? Digital music--digital *everything*--could easily be wiped out one day. And then where would we be? Okay maybe I'm a little paranoid. But without CD's and DVD's and books my room/car would be pretty frickin' empty.
