Today, i find myself bogged down in work for school. Finals week is almost here and i'm swamped with research papers and presentations. Yet, i sit here in front of my computer inspired to start a blog. Why? The answer is i have no fucking clue why. I just felt the need to jot down some thoughts and share it with the internet. Hopefully people read it but if not at least i have some place to share my thoughts. I dont find myself to be a good writer in any sense, so bear with me.
Absolutepunk is my favorite website. It's where i go to get all my music news. I've been a long time lurker of the threads here and i really enjoy reading the passionate discussions that go on. That's something i desperately missed the last few years being at school. No one here shares my taste in music. I find my love for bands that play actual instruments gets drowned out by the monotonous beats and bass drops of the EDM movement that has taken over my school. So today, i've decided to become a more active member of the community on this site, engage in discussions over the music we all are so passionate about in this scene and make some friends.
When it comes to discussing music, i'll be the first to admit i dont play a single instrument, i've never taken a music class and cannot even begin to talk about the technical side of things. However, my lack of musical understanding doesn't mean i can't appreciate that something sounds good. Music evokes emotion, and not being able to recognize a chord progression doesn't mean the music can't feel something. that's the best thing about discussions you have with your friends or that people have on this site, they don't care, we are all united in that music elicits a feeling good or bad.
I just sent in my three dollars to change my username on the site, so look for me now as tmagrosky
