What does it all mean?

This is my music blog. I love music, immensely. I love the overwhelming feeling when a song can literally take your breath away when you hear it the first time. I love what it can do to your state of mind, the way it can change your mood or reinforce it, act as a backdrop, or a vehicle to take you somewhere else.

What made me want to start this blog, was the fact that I realized I gradually stopped felling the same way about music that I remembered feeling when I was a teenager. I remembered when everything that touched my ears was golden and I was discovering new artists (or new to me at least) on a weekly basis.

Lately I noticed there were very few bands I was listening to that were either the same, or extensions of the bands I liked years ago. This year I turned 25, which seems strange to me since my own personal musical renaissance started around the time I turned 15. I want to feel that way again, and this blog is dedicated to that. The title is a little misleading, because I will admit that I'm jaded about my music experiences and tastes, but hopefully this blog will highlight the good more than the bad.Oh, and the title of this blog lifted form a Pinhead Circus song, I always thought the phrase was kind of clever and it stuck with me.
