Welcome to Year 2 of our blog! February 11th will be the anniversary. Remember back then, when we started? Back when Trump-Russia conspiracy theories were a thing and people took them seriously? That was crazy! Ha ha ha ha….ahhh. I love you all.
Even if certain things don’t much change over the years, we do. Maybe we get wiser or learn to appreciate something new. Start new jobs or start looking at life in a new way. Or maybe we lose our minds completely. At the end of the day, it’s our choice to do what we want. To be who we want to be.
In that regard, I’d like a DJ thread about this. Tell me about what’s changed for you over the past two years. What are you into now? How are you different from then? Even if nothing about your life has really changed, are you feeling any differently?
Here’s something music-related that’s changed with me. See, I’ve had Sirius-XM for a few years now. I think I’ve mentioned before that I love it. At first, the idea of paying to listen to the radio seemed daft but, oh my God, the quality of music is vastly superior to anything AM/FM has to offer.
What’s surprising to me is that over time, I have found my usual selections under the Alternative Rock umbrella to be less and less enjoyable. You know what I’ve almost entirely been enjoying? Those stations whose programming centers around Heavy Metal and (I swear this is true) Outlaw Country.
Metal just appeals to me intellectually. Outlaw Country is fun. It’s all I’m into now. Alternative Rock is…well…it’s starting to suck again. Didn’t want to admit it, but it’s true. So that’s what I want to share.
As for you, how have you transformed? I’m really interested in those aspects of your life that have changed in such a way that even you would’ve been surprised two years ago. Where is your story going? Oh, for music, just share something you’re into or something you were introduced to
Dedications! For those who have stayed active at this, our 2 year anniversary. I’m just starting off with the Outlaw Country. There’ll be Metal in the thread.
