music



Music is probably one of if not the most important non-human thing in my life. You know how people are like "movie people" or "book people" whatever? I'm a music person, to the extent that I kind of...forget that television and movies exist a solid chunk of the time, or I don't have the time to watch them even when I'd like to because it'd cut into my listening hours. I can't play any instruments (anymore) & have no desire to make music but 90% of my special interests since childhood have been music related.

So, here's some junk I like, and some junk I've been listening to. I don't think I have unique taste at all, but I do have what I usually call very....dated, late 90s teenage boy taste so I guess that's kind of fun.
Or just check out my Last.fm, I guess.

rotating faves

(Stuff excluded from "lately" lists because I'm literally always listening to these bands,
but whatever release I've been rotating in like seasonal coffee flavors.)


Danzig - I've been putting Danzig 4 on a lot this month? I don't think I'd listened to the whole thing in years.
Type O Negative - Dead Again is finally on streaming platforms, so I've been playing it into the ground.
Gorilla Biscuits - Start Today for work tunes, still working through last months NYHC kick
Samhain - (3) November Coming Fire, fall weather is here and I would kiss this album on the mouth.
Mercyful Fate - Melissa, how obvious is it that I am willing it to be Halloween immediately?!
