What I'm Listening to Right Now
Let's be real here. This blog is almost completely inspired by the bands and/or songs I am currently jamming to. Most of the time, it is how I come up with ideas on what to write about. When I don't start out with a particular subject to post about, I just check out my recently played tracks and go from there. At any given time, I'll have a mix CD [or, you know, playlist] of the tracks that I am listening to. Over time, I start collecting certain songs that get stuck in my head or I see myself constantly returning to. A lot of the times they contain new releases or multiple tracks from a band that I am starting to get into. Other times it has songs that have been around forever that I am just connecting with again.
At a certain point, I usually just think, "Okay, it's time for a new mix". I then grab all of the songs that I have been listening to recently and put them together. I also always have fun coming up with a creative title for the mix. Usually the songs really don't have anything to do with each other or with what I call the mix, but more about what's going on in my life at that moment. I could probably go back and look at my mixes in chronological order and have a decent timeline of events in my life. I used to journal about my life all the time, but now this is the method I use to chronicle my life.
So, I suppose I must ask the question: What am I listening to right now? Well, here's my current mix...
