    So this the playlist I'm listening to

    as I write this. It is by no means complete, just what I have available on my phone at the moment. There are way more songs that I listen to, but this is just a general playlist for the way things are right now. I am a singer myself and a play the piano, so I respond to voices...

    I would love to experience the era of the

    1920-1930's. Does anyone have a time machine I can barrow?

    Despite the common thought,

    I think techno is really good for deep thinking & resolving. Try the stuff that comes out from record labels like "Avian" or "Stroboscopic Artefacts".

    I know it's weird but rock

    and alternative rock music calm my mind, especially ARTTM, ATL, The Maine, P!ATD, Green Day and blink-182. Try listening to their songs :)

    I have a history of making decisions very quickly about men. I have always fallen in love fast and without measuring risks. I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen...

    I must have a troubled soul,

    as I listen to death rock! But, I'm also into punk and some indie stuff. Then there's techno and techno thrash!

    Music helps me calm down

    when I'm really mad at something or someone. It helps soothes my soul and makes me feel good when I'm going through some tough stuff.

    It is the only way to calm me down.

    I sing obsessively when i am depressed and extremely down. When im angry i play it as loud as i can. It is my first love and music has never let me down. Music is the reason my soul is still alive.

    totally is my therapy.

    it helps take the edge off of whatever im feeling. the negative side is that songs sometimes make me think of ppl that i dont want to think of. something about the song reminds me of them. it could be the lyrics or just how it makes me feel. the vibe the song gives me is the...

    I love listening to Morrissey

    when I'm sad. he just has lyrics that you can relate to. he understands as a musician how to express himself with lyrics. he battles his sadness with music.

    The Perfect Illusion.

    It's two-thirty in the morning. I'm lying in the dark. Alone. The streetlamp outside my window is casting dancing shadows on the ceiling. The few remaining leaves are helpless in the autumn wind. In a couple of weeks the trees will be bare. Cold and naked like my soul. I'm...

    I am feeling depressed.

    .. Very depressed... All I can do is listen to Pink Floyd and think about how money is ruining/running my life.... I hate money and everything it is about. But Pink Floyd is here to help.

    this is the kind of thing

    that makes my life worth while. going to shows. getting out all the frustration from the daily struggle. getting together with other like minded people and knocking each other over in the pit. here's a clip from the 2013 riot festival in Chicago. full rancid set, enjoy:

    I use music to get away instead of talking to

    people. When you're happy you listen to the music, when you're sad you understand the lyrics.

    Since I can remember my father was an alcoholic.

    My parents divorced when I was 6 and it was a really hard time for my sister and I. I was never really into music until about 5th grade, even then it was basically an obsession with One Direction. The year after that I got into the more heavier music and started to wear skinny...
