    Wow! Yeah, I agree with most of what you said. However, music I believe music is very important to have in life. Yes, reading is a great escape and can be very enjoyable as can talking with someone face to face. I really hate talking on the phone for the most part because you can never tell what the other person is really thinking, which you can only see in their facial expressions and body language.

    I think music really helps a lot of people, including me, get through the day. It's just about being entertained, it's about feeling the music, atleast for me anyway. It lets me go back in time, mainly to the 70's (I wasn't alive at the time, but the music produced then was and still is the best music period) and it lets me think. I don't listen to most of that crap that's considered "in" like all the sh*ty rap, hard rock, country and pop music that has no depth or substance. Music is inspiring and can be a driving force. Seriously, in history class, I don't know why there isn't an American Music unit; it's something that defines generations. iPods and other mp3 players let us carry around sometimes amazing collections of music in the palm of our hand and while some use them way too often or just to look cool (those people usually have hideously lame music collections and/or pr0n on their iPods), there are a lot of people who just love and breath music.

    I agree. I love music.(Good music anyways) I don't consider all that modern crap music. Music, to me, is the 20s - 70s and that includes any classical music too.

    Right on! Yeah, I like listening to old music, like really, really old music sometimes, like "hill music" if you know what I mean. Yeah, I pretty much hate all 80s music, and the 90's aswell as 00's haven't been too hot either, although there are quite a few modern bands that really shine, like The Shins, Modest Mouse, Guster, Iron & Wine, The Flaming Lips, etc.

    Omg tell me about it! I HATE the 80s and aren't too found of the 90's or 00's either. I swear, everytime I pass the music channels, it's another clone no-name band. I think they ahve a new band every week. Whatever happened to the bands that stayed around for decades? Like The Beatles or The Doors? There's no good bands like that now. And yes, I agree on the few good ones like Modest Mouse, Bjork, Radio Head, Jolie Holland (Don't know if you know her, but she's absolutely amazing!)

    Yes, while I like these new bands, it doesn't seem like they talk about love and experiences to half the scale that The Beatles and Bob Dylan did; oh, speaking of Bob Dylan, I'm like that new add he's in, even though it's promoting Apple's music store, which I never buy music from.

    Now, I don't know Jolie Holland, but I'll check her out. I really like stumbling upon artists that hardly anybody has heard of. If you want to hear an amazing artist, look for Neko Case. She's got amazing songs with intricate lyrics; best singer I've heard in a loooong time. For some reason they try to pigeon-hole her into to the Alternative Country genre, which I guess is slightly understandable, but she leans heavily on the Alternative side. To get started, check out her most recent album, Fox Confessor Brings The Flood. Yes, weird name, but an outstanding album; everytime I play it outloud, people's heads turn. She could be compared to Janis Joplin or the main girl from Jefferson Airplane.

    Also, look for Elliott Smith. My favorite song of his, Miss Misery, is on the Good Will Hunting soundtrack, aswell as a few of his other songs. He committed suicide a few years ago, before I had heard of him, and when you hear some of his stuff, you'll really wish he was still here.

    I love talking about music.
