    It Takes Over

    This is why I can never be one of those people who work/ read/ study with earbuds in. When there is music, most of my attention goes to the music. I get lost in it. It consumes me. I consume it. Especially with earbuds! Then, the music is flowing through me. All I can do is close...

    I Am An Aural Empath

    Connections. Connections. As a newbie, I started joining experiences for the types of music and musicians that I have a fondness for as a way of connecting to people with similar interests. But for me, that strategy is unsound. There is no way to join an infinite number of groups...

    And Synthwulf Is The Person To Take Me To My Paradise

    So you thought trance/ happy hardcore was unoriginal noise. You thought that music made digitally could not open your soul, and make you impressed. You thought that music made in this ear could never compare to past classical composers. I say thought ladies and gents because I'm...

    Billy Corgan, Falling In Love Vs. Getting Laid, And Death Of Albums

    Warning: You will be bored to tears with this if you aren't a music geek. Billy Corgan on the music industry, bands who produce singles, not albums.

    Harmonics And Brain Waves

    This is a different kind of music that you can greatly benefit from when listened to regularly. There is many videos at your disposal on You Tube if you are interested in listening and experiencing this kind of music. My favorites are Solfeggio's, theta, and delta brainwaves...

    I watched so many DVD's of rock concerts on magic mushrooms that i have lived inside the music. I have escaped into a totally different and more serene and colorful realm than my once current reality and sometimes went farther faster than i wanted to. There have been times...

    Immersed

    I just dont listen to music, or experience it. I play guitar, bass and keyboards and I m immersed in it. In another world, another universe. There is no feeling other then true love that comes close.

    It Is Still Exciting

    All Day, Everyday!

    Obviously, I enjoy listening to music, but I also experience it. As crazy as it sounds, there's a song that perfectly describes my day - bad or good. Right now, "Waves" by DJ Satomi suits my day perfectly.

    Every note, tone, bass drop,

    and riff can trace the innermost crevices of our soul. Sometimes music can stab us right through the heart with the use of certain notes and rhythms.

    I Love Music

    Super casual music listeners. That's most of the people in the world. And you have to understand, that's why Top 40 radio exists. It's not there for people who seek out music and who love music~ Michael Stipe

    The Rhythm Within.....

    I feel the beat throbbing within me. The heavy bass makes me want to stay my hips back and forth in a seductive vibe. I want to stretch my arms out from my body and over my head. My hair is draped over one eye and I lick my lips as my body goes lower and lower. My mid-section...

    Lyrically Speaking
