There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Request: What I Need Is Music, This Is Step One.
No Worries
I want to hear new music desperately. Good music is preferable, but at this point I won't be choosy. I need this part of my life to be new and fresh again to help me start to get somewhere.

I put in this DVD full of mp3s I had on my old computer while I wrote my last post and felt a bit bored with the music I played, and embarrassed at the music I didn't play. It's understandable: the DVD was burned in the middle of 2005. So much has changed in so many other ways, and I've not listened to anything new shy of Jamie's collection. I've let that side of me become stagnant.

And every time I listen to music Jamie plays while she's in the shower, or while it's in the background while she writes an LJ post, it reminds me I'm an idiot. I really do need music. And this, readers, is where you come in. This is where I need advice. I know it's a problem to ask for music, because if I list bands I like, I'll get similar things to that suggested. But at this point, where I've not heard anything for a while, maybe that'd be a spark, at least, to try to find more things.

I really need music that will excite me and make me want to go and do anything and everything - you will not know how much I need this until I find it. I don't know where to look in this way, but it's obviously got to be different to what I'm listening to now.

But, let's start things simply: I simply need to hear things that I've never heard before. For someone that has so many friends who nurture music, and have so much love and devotion in what they produce, I'm a bit of a bastard for never making enough time to listen to their projects. I need to listen to bands people recommend, and music you people make. I would love any CD compilations people make, or mp3 compilations or DVD-mp3 compilations, if you've got ridiculous amounts of time on your hands. I will listen to every bit of music I receive. I will try to state what I enjoyed in everything I received, and maybe it'd point me towards a new direction that I need.

So. Anyone have ideas, or anyone willing to ship me a CD or a DVD? I'll try to offer something nice to anyone who'll help, if I can. A nice picture or icon, maybe. I seem to make good icons when I have good music playing. Inspiration and all that.

Well, this will sound terrible, but no. I haven't been using LJ much and go for about 4 or 5 days at a time without checking things these days, because I get bored of being around this laptop.

So, I missed your original post, else I'd have downloaded something. And I missed downloading them now because YouSendIt stops downloads after a week.

So, I'm sorry. I feel guilty that I missed that.

Aw, well that's okay! I'd love to send some music your way except I can't burn CDs. Next time I decide to upload any interesting MP3s, I'll email them to you so you may download at your leisure.

Gaffkin and I will see what we can do!

When would you be visiting, if you still want to?

I'll fling you a CD or DVD if you want. My taste in maniy electronic (I'm the self-dubbed electronica King) but I like a broad range of generes. Anything good, except metal. I can't stand metal.

I'm enjoying Leonard Cohen, Sigur Ros, the 'We Love Katamari' soundtrack and Hanne Hukkelberg at the moment. I'm ace.

I think a lot of the stuff I've heard is electronic and I want to steer away from it for a little while, to branch out. I'm not sure about game soundtracks, I think I appreciate them a lot less unless I know what part of the game it links to.

Still, other bands noted. When I get time, I'll look into those.

I don't have any blank CDs at the mo, but I'd be happy to burn you a CD or two when I do get my hands on some!

It would be very much appreciated, thank you.

I'll also whack a CD or DVD your way, depending how much stuff. A DVD would be a little too much perhaps. My tastes are mostly similar to the Rapping Shoe's, except that I like a little bit of metal. Just a little, mind.

Speaking of James, I can't remember if you've heard any of our stuff. I say 'stuff', but we've only finished one a href="http://des.5of6.com/">original song</a> so far, and one remix (Which not many people have heard). We should put it online, really. Our new song should be finished pretty soon, too. Finally.

Anyway, I'll see what I can put together, and I'll get your address.

Crap. HTML tag skank-up.

You'd be surprised. A DVD might exhaust what you have, but it'd give me a lot of new bands to listen to and try to find more info on, if they're real hip.

I believe I heard a work-in-progress bit at some point, of your work. But when Jamie wakes up, I will head to this website and listen to this original song.
