Back to music: Ever catch Tommy Lee on Cribs? Motherfucker never got a dime from me. It sums up everything I hate about contemporary American culture and screams firestorm. (...someday a real rain will come and wash all the scum off the street...sick, venal....)
As a female, it's easy to be summed up as a groupie, but I got to meet a lot of people whose music meant a lot to me just walking up and saying thanks: Jello Biafra, Henry Rollins, Mike Ness, Jason Newsted...very nice guys. Henry even hugged me; I first saw Black Flag at 15; pick up Get In the Van if you haven't already.
Now that "punk" is marketable, all the shit sounds the same. Oh well. Any suggestions? I can't buy into that Blink 182 bs.
I have an extensive selection as well: Nina Simone, rockabilly, all the standards (Frank, Tony, Ella, the Louis (Prima, Armstrong), Mozart, Wagner...Sweet Honey In the Rock (vocal group)
