I am having trouble articulating what I want. Yuk. Yuk. Yuk.

For the time being, music serves me as an emotional stimulant that gets me where I'm going. For the time being, "where I'm going" tends to be the end of my shift at work. I have more than enough stuff on my ipod to go from the start of the evening to the end without listening to the same thing twice in less than a few shifts (maybe a whole week), but a lot of my music is very not good for getting the blood up when you're trying to stock groceries as quickly as possible. Lets face it, Joni Mitchell is about the only thing that can capture the moment when you're tromping through two feet of snow at six in the morning (yay, last January), but she ain't makin' me want to rock out with my cock out.

Smarmy Chad (an aspect of my personality that gets little play when I'm not hanging out with my mother, who I intentionally annoy at every opportunity) likes to say things like, "Draw a triangle whose vertices are Cowboy Mouth, Audioslave, and Scissor Sisters, and I want the band that is at the center of that triangle."

Come to think of it, that band might actually BE Man Man, so maybe I should just go buy everything they've ever recorded.

I am having trouble articulating what I want.

For maybe the last fifteen years, I've had the distinct impression that (amongst other things) I'm an avid classic rock fan. The Doors specifically are a band that have eluded me for the longest time. I really think I probably like the Doors. Maybe I should buy something of theirs. Opportunity cost! Opportunity cost! Aargh!

I am having trouble articulating what I want.

I've never been very good about having a lot of music to listen to, which is really frakkin' stupid when you consider the boost to productivity I get when I'm listening to music. Part of the problem right now is that I just don't have a lot of money to spend on new music. Personally, I don't have a lot of problems with piracy ... except when it comes to the indie stuff that I tend to love the most. The biggest obstacle right now is my relative musical illiteracy. My musical needs are fairly specific right now. I just don't know what I'm looking for.

I am having trouble articulating what I want.
