...yes i am. desperately. it sucks.

because my taste in music seems to suffer from a really bad case of ADD, i'm just going to give you my current top 10 most played, courtesy of iTunes... so you have an idea.

1. live to be free - griffin house
2. where's da g's - dizzee rascal
3. military fashion show - and one
4. it's a sin - pet shop boys
5. day after tomorrow - tom waits
6. cotton fields - creedence clearwater revival
7. goodbye america - the unseen
8. follow the cops back home - placebo
9. knock 'em out - lily allen
10. one trillion dollars - anti flag

so, based on that... help me out. i can honestly say i'm pretty much into everything (yes, that includes country, rap and classical). i'm not huge on most metal, but i'll try anything once.

Marry me right NOW. No, seriously. NOW. Holy shit.

I have some synthy stuff that I'm going to give you when I get home. I'll try to make a whole mix for you if you like.

and yay, that would be awesome. i don't have anywhere near enough synthy stuff in my library :]

Look up a band called The Hanks. They have 2 myspace pages, so you can get a pretty good feel of what their two albums are like. I'd recommend either of them. In general, indie rock annoys the eff out of me, but these guys are so ridiculously good, I can't help but love them.

I know I've mentioned them a thousand times before on here, but everyone should check out some Subtle, even though they're not exactly for everyone. They're rooted in hip-hop but are all over the place stylistically and bring in influences ranging from electronic/IDM to post-rock to indie and a dozen other styles. For individual songs, check out A Tale of Apes I, I Heart L.A., Return of the Vein, F.K.O and Deathful, though I'd recommend checking out their whole A New White and For Hero: For Fool albums (the latter especially).

You're gonna love what I got for you!

Here's a decent resource I just found: http://discotrax80s.blogspot.com/

I'll send you some from my own collection though.

asssssholes! help me out.

I helped! Do you want me to upload stuff when I get home?

Some of this stuff I've actually managed to get other people into. Some of it's stuff that only I think is cool, cause I'm a big dork. Some of it you might even get into. More likely you'll listen once, nod your head a little, and get on with your life. Wouldn't blame you.

Torche - Grenades (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5iXtt_d5nw)
Groovy bubblegum metal. People compare them to QOTSA for reasons which I've yet to figure out. No angry white boy shit, just straight up tuneage.
The Aquarium (http://www.myspace.com/aquariummusic)
Keyboard/drums duo. Nothing to scoff at when the songs are this good. Listen to "Can't Afford to Live Here" - almost obnoxiously catchy.
Yea Big & Kid Static (http://www.myspace.com/yeabigkidstatic)
Spaz-rap? Concise songs, fast tempos, hyperactive vocals. Listen to "Duck, Mother Fuckers!"
Chantal Kreviazuk - Far Away (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYyt1mhuoxY&feature=related)
My favorite pop song ever. Don't pay attention to the video though, it sucks.
M.I.A. - Boyz (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZv-G7IISgs)
Something to shake your skinny white ass to.
Battles - Atlas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpGp-22t0lU)
Remember when "experimental" also meant "fun"? Me neither.
Gregor Samsa - Jereon Van Aken (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwgR-Xhgb64)
This oughta slow down your day. It's the beauty of a beautiful pretty thing.
She & Him (http://www.myspace.com/sheandhim)
Lightweight pop from another era. These songs are all very good.

There, now you're happy.

i lost all my music, so i can't upload...

but lately, i'm kinda liking Camera Obscura, Los Campesinos!, and the Fratellis.

For the Fratellis, definitely look for "Chelsea Dagger"...otherwise, I'm kinda blanking =(.

my hard drive on my desktop computer completely died and i lost around 700 cds (plus pictures + essays)....so, yeah. bad luck.

i cant even remember other stuff i'd normally tell her to check out. buhh!

Almost none of my stuff is in English, is that okay? Want to try out some Asian/Indian tunez? :D

The same exact shit happened to my computer last week and I still wanna slap everyone in the face over it.

I agree with Rag Doll that you should check out The Fratellis.
