I'm too lazy to actually write something (OK, not really - I've just had a rather large beer....), so I'll just paste something from an AIM window:
OuroborosOnIM: but, I'm so broke that I'm afraid to write a check for fear it'll bounce
OuroborosOnIM: I should've thought of that before spending...$140...on Blackmore's Night merchandise
OuroborosOnIM: They are my new favorite band.
OuroborosOnIM: And have my new favorite song ("Storm")
OuroborosOnIM: for nearly a decade, I've had no enthusiasm for music whatsoever. Now I'm like a teenager again
OuroborosOnIM: I just found Rainbow Live In Germany, too - I just unwrapped it - and about to listen to Stargazer live...this could kill me.
OuroborosOnIM: I wish I could spend 4-7 days following Blackmore's Night around
OuroborosOnIM: that would re-arrange the molecules of my mind
OuroborosOnIM: I now consider Ritchie Blackmore the best musician ever, and (obviously) best guitarist, leaving Satriani as #2 and Rhoads #3
Post something about music. Something. Anything. It doesn't matter what. Although, something sincere would be best.

It is a always pleasure to find new music that you love. And I thank Ouro for telling us all about Blackmore's night. I could only find the first album but I will keep on trying to find the "Fires at midnight" album. I want to hear the song "fire." I heard it is Blackmore's best solo ever!

I grew up with music (jazz and big bands), learned to sing, and play guitar and piano. I even did the band thing for a few years. Now, the stereo is always on in our house. My kids know the words to TONS of metal (and other types) of songs. We play Name That Tune all the time. Music is a huge part of our lives, and always will be. It can compliment your moods, and it can speak right to your heart. It can make you laugh, and it can make you cry.
The thrill of "finding" a new band, or a new type of music that appeals to you is incredible. That seems to happen to me once or twice a year, and then I play the music until we all know it by heart. I have certain albums/songs that mark many points in my life... that remind me of special times, good and bad. Hmm. I'd bet I could chronicle the milestones of my past 100 years or so *snicker* without too much trouble.

That beautifully sums up just how I feel about music. I always have music playing and I love all kinds of music. Although, I love it when my 4 year old says "Mommy let's play some Rammstein" best of all. *snicker* After all mommy has taught her to rock on out.
I even pursued music as a first love while attending college. Audio Visual Certificate is what I started off with. I studied all things to do with creating and editing sound and film.
I worked in the studio at school as a helper to the Intern. I went on to be an Sound engineer's intern at a studio here on Music row for about 6 months,just enough to learn that I didn't want to work my whole life inside.(The have to work a week or more without getting off.) I didn't like the fact that you had no control over your life. I felt owned, though I would be rich. So I moved on to the artistic side of my being.(since I am so rich anyway in all things but money and who needs it?) I continued my education in all things art,and graphic design. I guess art and music are just my life.
Things I can't do without music:
A life without blasting rock, would be a life, I just would not want to live!
Rock on camchatters!
