Music Time! 2/27/16

While I’m waiting to take a shower after a bike ride… let’s shuffle some music! Someone asked me a couple of days ago why I do this. I do it to hopefully introduce people to bands they’ve never heard of within the genres I listen to. That would be Futurepop, EBM, Industrial, Industrial Dance, New Wave, Goth, Punk, Electroclash, Electronica, Darkwave, Shoegaze, Synthpop, Alternative (mostly before it became mainstream), and some EDM, and Techno.

Music TIme! Valentine’s Day Edition! 2/14/16

It’s time to put MediaMonkey on shuffle again, but this time with the filter “Love” so that it only plays songs with the word “love” in them. It’s Valentine’s Day, so it was either “love” or “murder.” I decided to go with “love.”

Suzie and I pretty much boycott this commercial holiday that has no relationship to love anyway. Seriously, go look up the origins of the holiday. Instead we do cool stuff without all the hearts and candies: like going to the Gothic Ball in Austin!
