    How Angsty Gets Her Groove On

    My friend gifted me with a little boombox that I pretty much ignored until I needed a cd player in my studio, where I converse with you folks. My laptop is on my drafting table. The cd player is directly behind it. The sound is a little top-heavy, then I find my groove. When I...

    How Do They Do That Hoo-doo That They Do?

    Seems we're wired for music. That's why I'm fond of string theory in physics. Nothin' but vibration, all the way down. It explains a lot. When I am dancing, my body is vibrating just like a string being whipped around. Is this the dance of our very sub-atomic particles...

    It'S Almost Eerie....

    ...how the lyrics of a song can touch me so deeply...sometimes making me recognize feelings or emotions I didn't even know were there.....*I'm not above...making up for the love...you've been denying you could ever feel...*

    Music Is Almost The Best Thing In The World...

    I cannot describe how wonderful music is to me.  How great it makes me feel.  I think music is the most awesome thing ever...  Well, it's top 10, lol.  I love how music can just change a person's mood. Whether it's for good or bad, it's amazing.  Music...

    Good Music

    I love how good music can give you shivers. The right song at the right time can really give me a buzz. My brain feels fuzzy, my hair tingled, and my skin gets prickly. I love how music can do this.

    I Get Shivers When I Hear Good Music.

    This happens to me alot! I can remember the first time I heard "never met a girl like you before"  from iggy pop. The hairs on my neck stood up and my hands began to tingle; all in a really good way.  This proves my theory that I actually get from...

    The Hunt

    The road to a deeply satisfying musical experience has varied over the decades. From transistor radios to 45's, albums to tape, fm to cd's, droid to computer, I've tried to find the path to music. The first thing I did upon getting this laptop (never had a computer before) was...

    Feels So Good

    I really think I could go an entire day replying to every person I communicate with verses from songs. I remember my first little boombox I had when I was 12 years old, with a cassette player. When I would get home, I would go directly to my room and obsessively listen to my...

    When I encounter my new favorite song,

    I just become obsessed with it. I'll listen to it over and over for hours, then I check out the other stuff the artist has to offer, and it becomes my new favorite artist or band.

    Visceral

    When I was a very young child, the sound of a violin would set me off crying. My mother was profoundly annoyed when, in church, the choir would rouse me to wailing. At many concerts I have attended, classic or rock, I have to fight back the impulse to weep with joy. There is...

    I Am Glad I'm Not The Only One

    Of course what is good is subjective, but that doesn't make the story any less true. I like a wide range of music, some of it I know for a fact isn't the most profound. Even so, beauty can be heard in the most unusual of places. No matter who the artist, music that speaks to me...

    Headphones Need A Bone-phone

    Listening to music with a decent set of headphones is exquisite. Our skulls are amazing sound chambers. However, listening to music in front of big-*** speakers has a benefit headphones don't. Those sound waves vibrate our bodies. That's why we like to lay on the floor with...
