Spring Break Sorrow
Ah, the magical time of year when people get to travel to exotic locals, such as Florida (Alex), California (Austin), and Amsterdam/Spain (Zack), while I get to stay home and do absolutely nothing. Being one of the least heard members of ATG, I feel like now's the perfect time to explain why I don't post the same amount that they do. To put it plain and simple, I can't find music that I like nowadays. Yeah, there's some good stuff out there, but most of the music I read and hear about, on this site and others, just doesn't seem to wow me. I get made fun of alot for my near-obsession with The Clash (they're just so damn good!), and people, ie. the members of this site keep asking me why I don't listen to different music. I can't find it! Even with iTunes and blogs like this one, I can't seem to get my hands around anything worth anything. For example, this past week, I was checking around the internet for new releases, trying to find something to write about, and being the isolated music-hermit that I am, thought that I could write about, of all bands, Artic Monkeys. I know. They're the most hyped-up and talked about band this year. But I didn't know that. Needless to say, I feel out of touch with the music trends of today. And that's why I don't post as often. P.S. Sorry that there's no music on this post, I'm trying to figure out how to do it. And expect a review of Artic Monkeys' show at the 930 club this upcoming week. P.P.S. Music suggestions are welcome!
