CG loves my music playlist.
CG: Your music collection is awesome. Where do you find these songs?
Me: I have an awesome taste in music. What else can I say?
CG: Dude, c’mon!
Me: I swear man. Think about about it.
Me: Fine. Don’t believe me.
CG: Dude! Don’t be a d*ck!
Me: Fine! You really wanna know?
Me: There’s a hole in my heart since there’s no one who loves me truly. In order to fill that empty void in my heart, I immerse myself in music. I fill that void with music. Good, soulful, beautiful music.
CG: Dafaq is wrong with you?!!
Tiesto is playing in Bangalore today! Woohoo!
How many of you are going for it?
Here’s another one of my old posts:
Headbanging For Dummies….(Original Publishing Date: February 12th, 2009)
Recently I was at a concert where the Swedish Heavy Metal / Progressive Metal band, Opeth played at IIT-M‘s Saarang 2009. The concert was nothing short of spectacular. Opeth had played over two hours of unadulterated Heavy Metal..
What was disturbing was the crowd of idiots who were present at the show. They had no idea about which song or what kind of music was being played. Never in my life, have I seen people whistling, clapping or running around imitating a train when a guitar solo is being played. Such an act insults the great institution that is Heavy Metal…
For the benefit of the people (idiots) present there, I give you:
HEADBANGING FOR DUMMIES
#1. Stretch your neck well before you start to head-bang This is of supreme importance. If you do not warm up, you can find yourself in traction quite quickly. Start by performing gentle head rolls. This means you roll your head slowly from side to side. Then grab the top of your head with one of your hands and pull gently in the opposite direction. Repeat toward the other side. Make sure you feel good and loose.
#2. Nod your head gently as the music starts to play. There is plenty of time to head-bang. Start slowly to make sure you are truly warmed-up.
#3. Increase the motion of your headbanging. As the music quickens, nod your head with greater range back and forth. Harder and faster is the key here.
#4. Swing your head all the way down to your waist and then back up again. Continue this in a circular motion to really rock out to your favorite music or band.
#5. Don’t run around like a jackass. Listen to the music instead of running around or clapping.
Once a month, I take my parents out to dinner or lunch, whatever works better for me. No place fancy, either a place like Huckleberry or Herbs & Spice – you get the drift. My dad prefers that I drive, so that he can drink in peace without having to worry about getting caught for a DUI. Like all dads, my dad loves commenting on everything and offering advice that I don’t need.
Dad: You mind driving a bit slower. You might damage your suspension.
Me: Chill, besides I’m super hungry.
Dad: I hear an ambulance, move to the left lane and let it pass.
Me: I don’t see anything in the mirror.
Dad: It’s behind us, I can hear the siren.
Me: Ummmmm. you might wanna have your glasses checked.
Dad: My hearing is perfectly fine! You mind turning the music down, then you might hear it too!
(I dial the volume knob down)
Me: Still can’t hear anything!
Dad: Oh wait! That was your music!
