Because the music do

Right now, music is such a HUGE deal for me. I've noticed that more and more lately I'm reaching for my headphones or my music player whenever I'm feeling stressed or just even have a spare moment to "rock the tunes."


My taste in music tends to be a little... eclectic. I am generally open to listen to most "alternative" music. So, for a little Friday fun, I'll share the exact playlist I am listening to right now:

Just like you imagined - Nine Inch Nails
Lithium - Evanescence
Oooh La La - Goldfrapp
Survivalism - Nine Inch Nails
Lovely 2 C U - Goldfrapp
Pile of Gold - The Blow
Cheryl Tweedy - Lily Allen
Fidelity - Regina Spektor
1234 - Feist
Pardon Me - The Blow
The Big U - The Blow
Eat Your Heart Up - The Blow
Birds and Fishes - Venus Hum
Always In My Head - Psapp
Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne
The Long List of Girls - The Blow
Smile - Lily Allen
The Words - Psapp
Yes and No - Venus Hum
Do You Want To Fight Me - Venus Hum
Friday Night - Lily Allen
Transylvanian Concubine (Manson Remix) - Rasputina
Only - Nine Inch Nails
We're In This Together - Nine Inch Nails
Every Day Is Exactly the Same - Nine Inch Nails
Right Where it Belongs - Nine Inch Nails

I know, I know. I just can't help myself though. I like what I like.

So... what are you listening to? Got any reccomendations for awesome new bands? Share!




p.s.
in case you didn't know, the title of my post is inspired by a lyric from the Korn song "twisted transistor" The video is freaking hilarious.

Thanks peeps for all the sweet comments about the mojo! I'm hoping I will be refreshed this weekend. I'm taking a little field trip to go to the SAM tomorrow morning. Mebbe I'll get some good photos of my outing as well. Nothing sparks the creative juices like looking at pretty photos (note Flickr obsession showing)

Okay, I've got TONS of music I could recommend for you! You know you just opened a can of worms, right? lol...but I won't overwhelm you yet, instead I'll just recommend that you check out my friend, Chad Perrone...he's cute, he's little, he's amazing! http://www.myspace.com/chadperrone

He's the singer/songwriter type, but if you're more into rock (I say rock loosely, haha), they're also this great local artist I know named Pete Kilpatrick (http://www.myspace.com/petekilpatrick). You'll have to let me know if you check them out! :)

And sorry about the mojo...like you saw on my blog, I know the feeling. My theory is though that we haven't lost out mojo, just we're more or less doubting ourselves and being overly critical on our work. Case in point, I wasn't happy at all with my last Mojo layout, but I loved the Cousins lo I did and funnily enough, the Mojo layout has been 3 times as popular....it's even been featured on the main page of Scrapbook.com apparently. I just don't get it. But I guess creating something, even if we don't like it, is better than creating nothing, right?

Okay, enough with my novel! haha...hope you find your mojo again! :)

I'm really into a lot of different kinds of music too... right now I've been listening to a lot of Sarah Harmer, Jenny Lewis, and Erin McKeown. Check them out! I've got a few of their songs playing on my blog right now.
