Addressing Comments and Other Things

Hey guys, thanks for all the comments and support, it's definitely appreciated.

Now, to answer a comment I received in my introduction post from prelude1221 over at MasterSwindle:

"What are you going for at M tech and what kind of music do you listen too? Dubstep, electronica, Im just now getting into infected mushroom."

These are both good questions, the second of which I can really ramble on about. To answer the first one; I'm currently a freshman here at Michigan Technological University, with an undeclared major. I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with my life, or how exactly I'm going to reach a decision. I've put serious thought into dual majors, with an MBA coupled with likely some sort of engineering degree(leaning towards aerospace, ironically the only engineering not offered at this school). Of course, I'm not completely sure how viable that is, but it seems like a solid foundation to work off of.

Now to music... :D

As I said in my first post, I like to listen to a bit of pretty much everything. My musical tastes are very broad. I just plain love music, to the extent that I've been dabbling in Mixcraft lately, trying my hand at making some remixes. I think it's going along well, but I don't have anything release ready quite yet, but when I do, I'll likely link it on this blog for your critique. I've tried at various points to actually learn how to play some instruments, but it just doesn't hold my interest long enough...I suppose I burn out after realizing how bad I am.

On a typical day, I jump from listening to rock, then to perhaps some piano, to rap, then to alternative,then maybe even some country depending on the mood. I've just now started to listen to a bit of dubstep/electronic type stuff, and if you guys have any suggestions on where to start out, and who to listen to, drop me a link in the comments!

Perhaps you dubstep guys would enjoy this song, which is the first real dubstep I've heard:



If dubstep isn't your thing, and you're more into maybe metal or rock, check out this video by an excellent piano player who covers all sorts of rock songs. Who knows? Maybe you'll enjoy the twist on some of your favorite music. At the very least, the girls got talent, even if it isn't "your cup of tea" ;)



So yeah, as I said, drop a comment and let me know what you guys think! (And give this guy some music suggestions!)

  1. Country music is about the only music I dislike - I think that rock or rap/grime would be my favourites though.

  2. Oh how I miss playing the piano :\
    As I grew up playing piano, when I tried playing on a touch sensitive keyboard I found it really weird to play.
    Music suggestions... sorry I have none but will continue to follow :)

  3. I listen to very little country, but there are those few rare songs that I will listen to if I'm in the right mood. To put it in perspective, I've got 1k+ songs and growing, and I think 3 country songs. ;) hahah

    But thanks for reading/following! :D

  15. The girl in the second video is incredibly talented. I recommended taking some time, and going through her videos. She did two Ayreon songs, and Arjen Lucassen(The only official member of Ayreon.) Congratulated her on adding new depth to his songs.

  25. Dubstep is a new thing for me, normally in the past of gone for music with...lyrics. lol But dubstep is all about the sound it seems. The song I linked here is one that really just sounds good, I had originally stumbled across it in a video I was watching.
