Irony. One of mah best friends favorite number is 7. Mine is 6.
I’m catching up, I promise I’ll be in a rhythm soon!!
Kay. Day 6: Your views on mainstream music.
Oh boy, did I get a history lesson today (coughderikcough)
Honestly. My thoughts on this would be muchhhhh different back in 7th grade. Probably even back in freshman year.
It has it’s place. Fosho. Probably some of the best party, sing off key/or harmonize to in the car, light and fun up-beat music. And there’s some enjoyable alternative mainstream.
My only beef (hahah), is allllll of the electronic layering. Sure, okay, electronic mmusic is an art in itself. But really. Do you need to synthesize, and digitalize every noise? Even drums? The reason I don’t like Lady Gaga’s new stuff, is because it feels like such a thick texture of digital sounds. I don’t like listening to much of Black Eyed Peas anymore, because they can’t preform without autotune.
Don’t get me wrong. I have Justin Beiber’s album on my ipod. I’m currently freaking addicted to Katy Perry’s E.T. (I blame Derik.). Maybe I’m hypocritical? meh. I get cravings for pop, and mainstream, sometimes easy on the brain (sometimes EXACTLY what you feel), music. And mainstream used to play a big part in my life. Simple Plan and Good Charlotte? Those were my boys. Hilary Duff was the first concert I ever went to. I used to be a HUGE Dreamstreet, N’sync, and Britney Spears fan. It all has it’s place.
Doesn’t mean I’ll stop loving David Bazan. Kevin Devine. The Good Life. The Avett Brothers. and whatever alternative/underground that comes my way.
Day 7: Five Pet Peeves
1. GUM SMACKING/Most mouth noises in general.
2. Hard Headedness. Or Stubborness (Though I am. Hm.). Just. Not even taking in what another person is saying. I hate that in myself too.
3. Someone telling me what to do, when I’m on the verge of putting my to-do plan into action. Instantly shuts meh down.
4. The purposeful saying things outloud but indirect near a group of people or a person, as if waiting for them to comment. Like “drawing them in.” or beating around the bush. ugh.
5. Stopping. Sentence. Mid-thought. Like a cliffhanger. I do that too, but I don’t wait ten minutes, until someone says something and take another 5 minutes to remember like my mom does.
Dude. I swear I’m going crazy sometimes expecting seniors to be there. But it’s okay. Still in denial. I shudder at being a “senior”. At least til my college visits are over, i will. How’ve you been??? Did you ever get that job? And. I want to yell french note at one of your tumblr posts…………:P :) but that might be a facebook conversation. ._.
About you. Mostly from you. Makes it hard to breath. Makes my chest hurt. In a bad way. I can’t handle it. I’m so done with you in my life in any way. I know this is old news. But. It’s hard to just give up, even when you’re disgusted. I don’t want to be around the corner anymore. I dont want to wonder when/where I’ll accidentally run into you, or see you. I wish I had left sooner, because this one has probably been the worst to get my mind off of. Sure, i get over things slow. Lord. Knows. But I feel like in still fighting to get away. I know I’m not. I’m just. Stuck. And the more I think about it, the worse it gets.
But I have some really amazing people in my life. If I didnt need a constant reminder. If I put in some damn effort. I need a flipping energizer bunny to give me a boost like this every tine I get down. Or just everyonce in awhile. Or maybe I just need to drink coffee at night more…
