Pretty Girl ~{Sugarcult}
otherwise, often Nickelback, sometimes some of the louder and more rowdy country i have.

i dont really listen to music to calm down. music get me into an emotional state thats rarely as simple as 'calm'. still, traditionally id go with things like Alizon Krauss, Nickel Creek, Imogen Heap, Goo Goo Dolls, Our Lady Peace, Death Cab for Cutie, though now ive added alot more bands to that mix.

11. Last gig/concert you went to?
Nightwish in Cleveland

The Cottars, probably. though i havent been on a big music hit this week. maybe Jonathan Coulton.

rap. pop. you get the idea.
Fall Out Boy. Panic! At The Disco.
beyond that im not terribly fond of the Dresden Dolls.
(afternote: modest mouse is dumb too)

14. Songs that make you think?
sorry, but i think about almost all my songs. i really cant narrow this down any. i dont listen to 'artists' specifically, or even 'genres' but i focus in on specific songs. which is why quizes like this are sometimes sorta hard for me because i name off all these groups, but its really just a few songs from each that i focus in on and wrap myself around.

15. Band that you think the world should love as much as you do?
Leigh Nash; Sixpence None The Richer.

17. Music video with the most babe watch?
no idea.

18. What "do you play/would you play" in the bedroom to spice things up?
well go with 'would you play' and im not sure i have anything appropriate for this yet. Imogen Heap's probably the best i could come up with right now. haha, unless anyone approves of She Wants Revenge.

19. Can you play a musical instrument?

30. What do you think of Classical music?
not bad. not really my thing but i can absolutely appreciate it.

31. What do you think of Country music?
ive come to like it very much over the last couple of years. before that i hated it.
though i admit its somewhat hard to find really really good country amidst the entire genre.

32. What do you think of Death metal?
sorry, but i prefer Symphonic Metal, Black Metal, Opera Metal, European Metal, and so on.

33. Last BIG band that you saw live?
if Nightwish or Within Temptation or Sonata Arctica or Lacuna Coil aren't big enough for you, I saw Chevelle once.

34. Are you a groupie?
um, maybe? not really? no?

35. Do you listen to music in foreign languages?

36. What famous musician do you find sexy?
probably Sharon Adel of Within Temptation.

37. Worst concert moment?
i cant even remember their names, but whoever opened for Within Temptation in Chicago wasn't that good and was completely out of genre as well.

38. Funny Concert moment?
Sonata Arctica had some amusing moments, like with the wolf stuffed animal.

39. Sad Concert moment?
1st concert i ever went to (Chevelle) i was so open that night, trying to figure out how concerts worked, what kind of people went to them, what those people's lives meant, what they were looking for... and my heart just broke for all the confusion that was there, all the want and desire, how much people want to be wanted, and all the drinking and smoking and then just the energy of the concert.. all the things people were trying to do to feel.

40. Best local act you can think of?

not really..

46. Are any of your friends/family etc musicians?

47. Song that best describes your feelings right now?
im not sure and im not going to pull something together. everything else on this quiz does a pretty good job of explaining it.
Here By Me ~{Three Doors Down} is good.

48. Song that describes your life?
obviously, really hard to say. still i think Twilight ~{Vanessa Carlton} does it pretty well.
add some of Iris ~{Goo Goo Dolls}.

56. Do you wear band etc T-shirts?
they're almost all i wear. them and anime shirts. and webcomic ones.

57. What do you think of people who do?
yay! i approve of people who make their interests clear. one of the best things ever is to be wearing a shirt for something excellent but somewhat obscure and to have someone come up and say, hey, nice shirt.

58. What music sub-culture do you feel like you belong to?
if forced to choose, i'd go with 90's alt rock, but thats too limiting. i like music thats deep, meaningful, passionate and represents an understanding of life.

Anyone Else But You (The Moldy Peaches}
before that it was Re Your Brains ~{Jonathan Coulton} and before that Still Alive from Portal.

love songs, you know?
all sorts of things, including Only a Memory Away.

62. Would you rather marry a musician or be one yourself?
be one i guess. but both would be cool. but anyone that i take interest in is going to, by prerequisite, be a 'musician' of some sort, even if they dont express their words through music and lyric.

i have one of those?
anyone on earth still has one of those???

64. How important is your partners taste in music to you?
i really dont care (so long as they dont like rap)
but really, its going to make a huge difference. because if the factors that led us to our music tastes are not going to be compatible, we've got a problem.

    The quiet lies - we don't need to talk about it anymore Don't need to figure out the truth Don't need to look inside our heads and in our hearts…

    I was wrong.

    Everytime someone died. color and breath, the fast unfurl of carbon away from death plants that rise and grow, strange citybomb beneath…
