  • Something about pop...

    22. Apr. 2008, 3:46

    Maybe not pop as a whole, but Rihanna in general. Bear with me, since my charts [or at least my old charts] don't reflect my eclectic taste.

    I'm a metalhead, obviously not concerned with how 'Trve' [which isn't a word, by the way, kids] my metal taste is, but I love metal. Mostly death metal and the sub-genres it spawned [see: ]. I tend to shift from more 'heavy' metal like In Flames Children of Bodom and Dark Tranquillity to more recent and more 'core' based metal like The Black Dahlia Murder All Shall Perish As Blood Runs Black and Bullet for My Valentine. I'm a huge fan of like Diana Krall, I love and modern English/Welsh like Toploader and Los Campesinos!. artists like David Gray and Holly Brook have a place in my heart of music as well. Then my guilty pleasure is Fall Out Boy.

    This is all really interesting, but just by viewing the artist connections I've spawned, you can see I have slightly conflicting taste. God forbid any true metalhead admit listening to Fall Out Boy! Please note my sarcasm.

    Hence, my newfound obsessions with Rihanna's Don't Stop The Music and Umbrella are unexpected, but not out of place. I dance like a raving fool so dance music and I tend not to mesh well. But I'm as much of a headbanger as anyone, so at any Rihanna concert, I wouldn't be too out of place windmilling and cranking the Soulja Boy [my rant about popular rap and how it's detrimental to society and all other music is saved for a later date, along with my rant about how hardcore dancing is best kept to your living room or kitchen, where people don't have to see you act like an idiot].

    I digress. [If you're not fond of digressions, I suggest leaving now. It only gets worse. :)]

    This is my fancy, American way to archive my music history prior to the reset I'm about to do. I figure my taste has evolved enough in the past year that I can wipe and re-scrobble... y'know?
