Loudtwitter and Is It Age?  
Is it b0rked? I had thought I had broken it, but it does not seem to firing for a few people.

This, of course, works to the advantage of those that loathe Twitter updates on people's LJs. So, I suppose I'll Tweet and post as well.

I was driving to my meeting this morning and thought about a bit I'd read about Michael Stipe eating cherries and listening to Patti Smith's Horses late into the night until he about threw up. There hasn't been music that I have been able to listen to that way--not in a nauseated manner, but just a CD that I'd be able to just dive into completely. Some examples: R.E.M.'s Murmur (which I would still like to buy in its newest incarnation), The Smiths' debut CD, The Sundays' Reading, Writing and Arithmetic. These, of course, are just a few that I listened to and listened to over and over again--amazingly not ruining my copies of them. Descendents' I Don't Wanna Grow Up was another--which I just thought about, because I've really been enjoying Christmas Vacation again. If I recall, I think one of the first Black Flag cassettes I ever purchased was around the same time (in Gatlinburg, TN of all places). In any case, I kept thinking that there just isn't music that I throw myself into like that anymore.

Sure, there are songs I'll really find appealing, but whole CDs? No. Not really. Not that I can think of?

Is it me? Have I crossed another line into practicality that I hardly ever find new music to praise?

What about you? What music shaped and defined you? If you had to think, would there be anything out there like that nowadays?

Perhaps I'm just subconsciously fishing for new music to check out, but I really am curious.

I did like American Idiot, but didn't dive into like I should have, I guess.
