I'll fill in more later. I've considered myself 'old school' though I make an effort to take recommendations. My friend Plash for example told me to check out the Antlers, and I loved em -- but, at my heart it is Bob Dylan, Sam Cooke, Van Morrisson, Otis Redding, Howlin' Wolf, Pogues, U2, the Alarm.
I was actually feeling really sad lately, like the world of new music was something too time consuming to get a grip on. I mean when I was 14 I had time to watch MTV all the time and vote 100 times for 'Save a Prayer' in the Friday Night Video fights -- but now, all grown up, with so many responsibilities like X-Box and Mets baseball and practicing complex commercial litigation in which billions are at stake -- well, I thought my musical education would more or less end in the early 2000s when I left school.
And now, today, on my first day at Pandora, I've found that there is great music out there to explore. It's like slipping back through the side door to a part of the human experience that I figured was just something I'd have to live without. I feel a little overcome. It's just very nice. I wanted to write that little initial feeling, because it's a nice moment, the sort that we forget we've had or more or less never forsee coming again when life gets sad.
anyway, I guess that's a bit about me today. Lol, I even like a coldplay song.
