this was originally done august 18th 2009.. for whatever reason i never posted it
i am posting it now because i haven't been writing anything lately
this site remembers your unposted entries in a "draft" folder, so i just pulled this out of it
i was thinking the other day about how i used to really like the beastie boys but now there's not really a circumstance where i'd listen to them
in some ways i feel like i have simply grown out of it.. not to take away from them as talented artists, but still one has to acknowledge a great deal of their lyrics and approach in general is silly
or i sometimes think about 2005 when i used to listen to tricky a lot
i was totally depressed at the time and tricky's music was always there for me, like a friend who always understood what i was going through
and now i still have an appreciation for tricky, but the musicdoesn't strike me in the same way that it used to, simply because i'm not depressed anymore
i suppose what a person listens to mirrors their life on some level, and when they no longer really get into it, its because their life has shifted, or they have matured or changed on some level
this makes me wonder, what have i been listening to today?
don't get me wrong, i listen to a lot of different music, but as far as a deep life connection, like the ones i just mentioned (beastie boys with my teen yrs and tricky with my depression) i can't really think of anything
hmmm.... if i have no soundtrack, what does that mean?
where am i right now?
is pool boy lost?
the more likely answer is simply "ain't nobody makin what i'm tryin to hear" -kid rock
but maybe i will look back on this yr and i will be able to sum it up like, 'back in 09 i was listenin to a lot of different things and trying to find something i identified with on a deep level, which coincided with me trying to find myself in general
