i felt so loved when i signed on tonight!
(i'm pretty sure i replied to everyone's comments, if i forgot you i'm really really sorry! <3)
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU;D;D;D;D;D;D
if anyone wants advice on anything, i love helping out other people. send me your heart in a personal message. :D even if it's about something really silly. :)

(this is a long post btw, so click on that little read more thingy! :D)

i had a really good day today.
i saw an old friend from my elementary school. he's probably like the first guy i've hung out with in months! the boys at my school are scared of me D: :P, so it was really nice hanging out with someone who knew about my orientation and didn't give a fuck. we had alot of fun. i was sort of afraid at first that we'd have nothing to talk about but we just spent the whole day walking downtown and talking.

he's really into the whole death metal thing, and we went to this store with TONS of band shirts with names like abortion and stuff, which is really not my taste in music. he can also do the low, gutteral screams they do and it was kind of funny, and people's reactions were even better!

as for yours truly... tristan's taste in music is well... complicated. my ipod currently has 3439 songs on it from every possible genre. i change my favorite song every two seconds. :) to give you guys a general idea : i REALLY like chiptune (music made from gameboys :3), so artists like henry homesweet and unicorn kid i like for when i'm hyper(and also the insperation behind my username :3)... i'm also a bit into.. idk, cybergoth/industrial? think combichrist, angelspit and mindless self indulgence... and then i REALLY like twee (Los Campesinos! :D), and alot of indie pop/rock/not really indie but wtvr (the boy least likely to, caribou, the decemberists, death cab for cutie, shout out louds), dance/pop/electro/hip-hop (dragonette, uffie, spank rock, electrovamp, jeffree star). i like some varied punk (NOFX, semi precious weapons), then i also like that sort of cutesy electronic music with cute lyrics (nickasaur!, a virginia sky, playradioplay!) . my favorite artist, however, is conor oberst : i love every song he's ever written whether it was for commander venus, bright eyes, desaprecidos, and his solo project. I also kind of really love lady gaga - i used to think she was just some mainstream artist but this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kd4x-_iL85s) changed my mind, she's totally unique and creative. she's also a really gifted piano player, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIeCrj_Gn6A) and is apparently AMAZING live (i couldn't get to her show when she did her tour, it sold out in like 0.2 seconds -_-)

so that's my music taste in a nutshell, i have 900+ artists so i wasn't gonna go through everything on my ipod (:

so how about you guys? what's your taste in music? did you know any of the bands i mentioned(lolzz)? do you have any music suggestions for me?

Tristan.
(and thanks again. i have a feeling i'm going to be really addicted to this website, you guys are awesome)

waaa! Sheesh, that much

waaa! Sheesh, that much writing makes my brain hurt...
^^ Didn't mean to sound so dippy there, just opened the link and- wow.

No, I don't recognise any of them... which makes me feel really bad :P I'm supposed to be broadening my horisons, after a friend called me up on the fact that I've mostly got folk and deathmetal on my mp3 - nothing like a bit of Seth Lakeman after an album of Cradle of Filth.

Wait a sec - I've read it through this time :) I love love love Death Cab for a Cutie! Sound of Settling and Lack of Colour are my favourites. Lol, my mum got so worried after hearing 'I Will Follow You Into The Dark' playing from my room. Mind you, that was after Elliott died though, so...yeah...

Bit of a rant there, anyways
And yes, Oasis is MEGA addictive :DD

bleepbleepflashbleep's picture

well death metal isn't really my style, but

DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE = LOVELOVELOVE. i didn't like narrow stairs so much but i liked the EP they just put out... and i lovee the songs on We have the facts and we're voting yes, one of their earlier albums (i'm kind of slightly obsessed kay?). seeing them live, with rogue wave = amazing amazing amazing. <3
though my absolute FAVORITE dcfc song was never released, but they have it on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_eGwK10XMk), you'll like it if you like a lack of color, which is a great song, and it's sort of folksey.

Music? Haha

I'm like you, bleep - I like soooo many types of music.

I think my two favorites are White Stripes and Queen. I also love Billy Joel, Coldplay, Dylan (including the folk). Glen Miller is amazing, and so is Stevie Wonder. Chameleon Circuit's awesome, but I doubt anybody here's heard of them.. Also, I love Cake.

I'd love to get some like mozart or something on my ipod, but I don't have money for itunes. I have the same issue with the Dropkick Murphies. Ooh! And I love soundtracks - plays and movies and stuff. Definitely. :D

I LOOVE THE WHITE STRIPES :)

i love Fell in love with a girl by white stripesss.
my sister is actually in toronto, she went to go see coldplay 2 days ago i think?
and there are plenty of sites where you can download classical music. i'm not really one for classical though - as an ex piano player i can appreciate it, but that's all.

Haha, yeah, most people are

Haha, yeah, most people are like that with classical. I mostly love it cuz it's interesting to try and listen to all fothe parts of it.

You can tell your sister that you know somebody who's extremely jealous of her, too. I'd love to see coldplay - though not as much as the stripes, who are amazing. I love the record Elephant... and Icky Thump. That's a good album thar. :D

hmmmmm

i have a strange hatred of most modern music, so not my type, but what the hey, everyone is entiteled to like wht they wish

love is when you think about them twice for every other thought...or is that obsession? is there a differnce beetween those two things?

TotalGeek42's picture

I really don't actually like

I really don't actually like most modern music, but over the years I've managed to build up a group of bands who I can stand. xD

mostly I like Queen and them peeps.... I can't believe I just said peeps...

Los Campesinos! are great!

Los Campesinos! are great! And they're absolutely awesome live, you can't stop dancing and jumping and just doing random stuff in their concert.
I'm a huge Death Cab fan and I think I've always had a crush on Ben Gibbard. He's just awesome. I love the Shout Out Louds as wells, they're pretty cool.

Other band... hmm... today I'm liking the Silversun Pickups, Queen, The Weepies, Air Traffic, The Perishers, Civil Twilight, The Killers, Peter Bjorn & John, Beirut, Owl City, The Bravery, Coldplay, Bob Dylan, Augustana and Empire of the Sun. That's what's on my recently played list for today, anyway. I'm kind of all about music, so yeah.

yesyes death cab is awesome,

yesyes death cab is awesome, i didn't really like narrow stairs much though but the new ep they put out is great.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_eGwK10XMk <- you may or may not have heard about this song... it hasn't been released, it's one of my favorite ben gibbard songs :)
and you saw los campesinos live? i'm pretty damn jealous. they played around my birthday but i couldn't go because i was broke from dcfc tickets and no one wanted to go with me :(
AND I LOVE OWL CITY TOO, AND EMPIRE OF THE SUN (my friend says i look like one of the guys, i really don't see it though) AND AUGUSTANA AND BEIRUT AND PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING ELSE THERE.

I loved that song! Where was it hiding all my life? Gibbard's great.

Los Campesinos was a great concert... I'm sure they'll play somewhere around you soon- and sometimes they play these small practically unannounced concerts, so if you keep an eye open you might find them near you!

Like which Empire of the Sun guy? The blond one or the other one? it's kind of difficult to tell if they're always in disguise, isn;t it?

I'll listen to basically

I'll listen to basically anything. No, really. My iPod is very diverse; we've got Cradle of Filth and we've got some europop music. The only kinds of music I don't particularly like are the super old school country, gangster rap, and certain pop bands who are geared towards nine-year-olds.

jacjessen90's picture

well,...

my tastes are not as veried as y'alls.... i listen to country,(randy travis, garth brooks,shannia twain,rascall flatts,etc.) gospel,(mercyme)pop,(Michael Jackson, Cher,the beatles) and classical(bach, rochmoninoff, tchichoffsky, pertchiorsky,beatoven,povorati,etc. ) so, yeah... some days i'm jack McFarland... and others i'm frasier crane...

Awesome! I also like my coffee how I like it, and a different coffee house can be pretty traumatic. I also have a favourite barista, but not because of his coffee-making skills, but because he's hot.

Not everyone has a favourite

Not everyone has a favourite hot barista! Some people pick their favourite because of their coffee. Alarming and decadent, isn't it? ;)

Ok, why is it that the bookshop Starbucks always have a cute (and slightly nerdish in a very good way) barista? Damn, I want a bookshop Starbucks!

Music!

I love music! I just bought myself a nice set of headphones today, I'm so happy, my speakers suck but these things get the bass right and everything. I feel like I'm surrounded by music. :)

My favorite artist ever has to be Imogen Heap. You can't really categorize her stuff, but it's fantastic. She's got a new album coming out this month, I seriously can't wait. If I'm not in the mood for vocals there's this woman with a Cello, Zoe Keating, who is also pretty genius. I haven't gotten a chance to buy any of her stuff yet but she's got a couple of peices online, and she's pretty flipping awesome. I also love IAMX. And if I'm in the mood for it, I listen to Placebo.

When it comes to music I like most stuff okay, (except for country and rap... With a couple of exceptions) but if I'm going to go out and buy something (I hate downloading music. I need to have the CD and the cover and everything.) it has to be flipping fantastic. Unless I'm buying something on a whim for a change of pace, I do that from time to time too. XD

Hi :o). I didn't get a chance to say "welcome" before. But welcome to Oasis :o). I'll be excited to read your posts! I'm glad you had a fun day. And sorry, I'm out of the music loop. Lol. I listen to Shakira, Juanes and Natalie Merchant. Lol-enough said.

But the fact that he collaborated with queen makes up for that. :D
