So it’s 3:30 in the morning and I’m still up. I’m tired, but my legs are bothering me (nerves from my car wreck and subsequent back surgery) and I’m out of meds. So I’m drinking alcohol as that helps calm the nerves down (I wish we had medical marijuana in Texas as that would really help).
In the meantime… some music. Most of the times I concentrate on synth-based music (Electro, EBM, Futurepop, Synthpop, Synthwave, etc), but tonight I’m going to tell MediaMonkey to ignore all those genres and play non-synth music.
I saw this band in Birmingham, Alabama a few years ago when they played with IAMX.
