So after neglecting this thing, I decided to start treating it right once more.
I've been on a serious music kick recently. Thanks to my compatriots in the Sock Drawer, I've uncovered a whole mess of music that I was missing out on before. This makes me both happy and sad.
It makes me happy because I get to listen to new music and share it with people and this is a good thing. I love music- it is just a wonderful way to express yourself without actually having to express yourself. It's a common language that tells you so much about a person. I have ended more than one date when someone tells me their favorite band is the "Goo Goo Dolls."
No, really, I can be that much of a dick if I want to be.
However, at the same time, it makes me sad. It makes me sad that I did not have this music in my life before. Instead, I spent my time not listening to this awesome stuff. I don't know how I got into music before stuff like Hot Water Music and La Grecia. I mean, how could I have listened to anything else? It's not that I don't like what I listened to then, it's just that now, I like this stuff so much more. And I like to way more than I liked the stuff I listened to in the past.
Anyway, I'm sitting down, getting ready to watch Sons of Anarchy. The show is entertaining and just compelling drama.
Of course, as I type that, they mention the surgery to implant a fake testicle in one of the characters.
