b/g - in the library

meme-tasticness

for poshlil, who wanted to know my thoughts on music, what kind of music I like when I'm stressed or angry (or any other time).

See, the first thing you have to know about me is that I'm a horrible music person.  Although I listen to music, and my tastes are pretty eclectic, I don't... do that thing that most people do.  You know, the thing where you find new music and download it/buy it, or where you pick artists and then go find other artists like them?  I don't do any of that.  Take me into a music store and I'm bored before I walk through the door.  And I don't memorize lyrics.  Much of the time I don't hear them properly, and I just don't retain them either.  I don't remember the names of the artists in the bands I like.  I don't look at their band photos and even really recognize them, I don't pay attention to their careers.  I don't really like seeing bands in concert after the first 20 minutes or so.  I don't know if it's that I didn't have that kind of a musical education when I was younger, or that I have a crappy attention span or what.  And I just ... yep, I listen to the music, and I like it, but I don't do any of that other stuff.  I'm also pretty resistant to new stuff when I'm not in the mood.  And unless I'm in Neil's car and he pops a new CD in, there is practically no time when I'm in the mood.
