I can't live in a world without music. I was recently obsessed with
creating playlists on Spotify...most of who I am is in there...if
you know how to listen.
I have yet to find a genre of music in which I can't find something
good....something honest. The sentence "I like all music except
Country and Rap" is SO tired.
I was born and raised a country girl, and I won't apologize for the
bit-o-redneck that remains in my blood.
My 2 current favorite songs are Blurred Lines (Robin Thicke) and
Fuck You (Cee Lo Green) - much to my son's dismay. Evidently it is
SO not cool to like Robin Thicke.
Sorry kid, Mom likes what Mom likes.
Other favorite artists are Pink, Eminem, Little Big Town, Paloma
Faith, Scissor Sisters, Aerosmith, Elton John, Trace Adkins, Train,
Indigo Girls, Pussy Tourette, Phillip Phillips, Van Halen, Beastie
Boys, Billy Joel, John Mellencamp, Kid Rock, Jason Aldean, Dropkick
Murphys, Blackmore's Night, Storm Weather Shanty Choir, Fleetwood
Mac, Dixie Chicks, Uncle Kracker, Journey, Eddie Money, Dervish,
Rhianna, Matchbox Twenty, Duran Duran, The Doors, The Police,
Alanis Morrisette, Rush, Evanescence, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Cure,
Alice in Chains, George Michael, LMFAO, David Guetta, Muse, Zac
Brown Band....(that's a random line-up from one of my
I am not a music snob. If it moves me, if I want to sing to it, tap
my foot to it, bop or bang my head to it...it goes on a playlist. I
liked "mmm Bop" in the 90's and I can be caught bopping along to
"Happy" now. Those are happy, teenagers in the summertime driving
with the top down fun songs....and they're not trying to be
anything else. 5 minutes after that I'll be dark, moody and
shredding air guitar and/or hairbrush microphone with Rob
Zombie...Judas Priest...Metallica. After that I can be found waxing
nostalgic and wishing for a dirt road with Hank Jr. and CCR. I live
and breathe music.
I do like TV. Star
in *almost* all it's incarnations, silly ghost hunting and
mystery shows, Rizzoli and Isles, House, The Mentalist, Supernatural
- I love those boys and I want that car)...History Channel,
Discovery, Science, BBC, SyFy...and I am entranced by American Horror
If I get into what movies I like, this will never end. Let's start
, Harold and Maude
, Benny and
movies, Dangerous Liaisons, Ab-normal Beauty, Silence of the Lambs,
, The Dream Team,
(YES I do like him), The DaVinci Code
. I'd really love to see what Ron Howard could do with
the 3rd Langdon novel The Lost Symbol
The Pirates of
the Caribbean movies, One Flew Over the
, Baz Luhrmann
's Romeo and Juliet
and any Mel Brooks
movies, Monty Python
movies and the
list goes on and on and on.
Same goes for books. I don't even know where to start....SciFi of
course is my first literary love. Mystery, Horror, Cookbooks,
theology/science....Erotica by Anais Nin....
Food....I'm oh so Libra-weird about it. I'll just leave it at that.
