Music of the Day

Been spending the afternoon taking a trip down memory lane. In the 80s and 90s, I listened to A LOT of music. I absorbed it like mad.

But as I started to figure out who I was in terms of music, I started to sway to a distinct flavor. Sure, I've had phases where I was all about ethnic fushion or Enya. I would listen to Madonna and Whitney Houston. I went through a period of listening to just anime music. But in that critical time of self-development, I was into Poison, Def Leppard, Guns N' Roses, White Snake, Great White, Skid Row, Warrant, Damn Yankees, Metallica....just to name a few. I know loads more are escaping me.

All these groups had songs with a beat. I still run around screaming, "Cherry Pie!" or recall watching Metallica vids on MTV only to have my mom walk in and out because she was not quite sure what the heck I was watching.

So what is that music called? Hard rock? It seems to change by decade. Back in the 80s, some of this was considered metal. Today? Not so much. Many of these groups had big hits and went mainstream, but I am reluctant to call them "pop."

Ugh. I hate labels.

In other news, I have discovered that I have a bit of a streak of southern rock in me. Who knew.

SPN Discussion: Thoughts on Dean/Jo and Dean/Lisa

When you lose part of your pairing for whatever reason and another takes center stage, I know it can be hard to keep enjoying your fave ship. So if you'll indulge me a moment where I talk about MY fave pairing on Supernatural and how I continue to enjoy them, and hope many of you will, too. (Even though I don't think many people on my flist like the pairing to begin with.)

I'm not trying to rationalize or validate why I like what I like. But I just wanted to say my bit. I hope that if any of you still like the pairing that you'll continue to ship them, even if just in art or vids or in our own little AUs. I'd hate to think I'm alone, LOL.
