Me and My Music

One day, someone asked me about my taste in music. He asked what is my

genre and what scene am i belong to. Then i said “i don’t know”. He then

asked “You’re straight edge, no?”. I said “I am”. Then you’re hardcore? Well,

NO, i don’t think that i’m that related to the scene.

I often being criticized for being less-idealistic about my taste in music. And those

of the anti-mainstream scene keep telling me not to listen to the music in hype. 

I was once very idealistic. I listened to punk rock and denies any other kind of mu-

sic. And there are times i’d become a hater. I hate people who dislike my music, I

hate people who listen to pop songs, moreover, I hate any other bands playing

easy-listening music.

But there always a good music came out off my own scene. And there are times i

have to fight my own taste. It doesn’t feel good, really. And for them who are still

in question, let’s say the music God came to me and put a pair of hearing aid on my


Now what music are you actually listen to? Now there’s this question i really hate

to be asked about. Not because I don’t know the answer, it’s because i don’t think

such question needs to be answered. And I hate being judged by what i listened

to. Why do you bother telling me to like this or that, when you don’t even want to

know how other music sounds like?

I listened to any kind of music that suites my hearing. I can tell you that i like hard

rock and metal more than others, but there are times when the kinds of music

don’t suite my mood or simply don’t suite the occasion. Then what should I do?

Turn off my stereo? Hell, no.

I like post-rock, experimental, and noise, that it suites me best when i’m in a very,

very bad mood. I listed to pop, britpop, and even emo when i feel like it, especially

when it’s about love situation :D. Hardcore, punk and pure rock in my standard

mood. Grindcore, mathcore, drone for bad traffic day. And country and classic and

jazz when i need to ease my mind. I also listen to hiphop, blues, mellodic and any

other occasionally. Though in some condition it could be different, but basically, I

listen to almost any kind of music. Say that I really love Metallica, can’t I like Mew

and Weezer, too? Or the Felice Brothers when I feel like to? Music is one of the

God’s best gift to humans, but the genres and scenes are man-made. Why being

stubborn and listen to only one kind of music when you can listen to them all?

I really don’t care of people calling me shallow or having no taste and attitude.

Well, it’s unlike I badmouthed someone behind their back or committing crime, isn’t

it? It’s not the “you are in no position to tell me what’s right” line but simply “not

worth arguing”. I pay attention to the scene that is going on, but to judge a

person based only on his/her playlist would be sad, wouldn’t it?

I said I am straight edge. I am proud of saying that I’m a non-smoker, non-

alcoholic, and don’t do drugs. But, if to be straight edge then one’s have to be

hardcore-holic, then I’ll put it away, call me anything you want. Because my pride

is being healthy, not hardcore.

What is your favorite genre? it’s music, nuff said.

the sky is red, and it’s 3.01 AM. The wind is stormy, and the thunder is thunderous.

And here comes the rain, it rains cats and dogs. Never in my life i see the sky so red

in such hour. In the middle of my concentration in reading comics, the tweet notifi-

cation reminds me of the news i read few hours ago; a plastic factory was burned

last night in the hood near me. hohoho, so the cat’s and dogs must’ve been wrapped

in plastic right now.

Anyway, I think it’s gonna be cool, to sit on my terrace and play some music. In fact,

when nobody can listen in such weather, i’m gonna make it real harsh, and real loud.

I think it’s gonna be one hell of an act rocking this rain in such early hours, no? hell yeah.

hell, no. Just my imagination, i can’t play music, don’t even had guitar.

White Whale: I think that someone’s trying to kill me. Infecting my blood and destroying my mind
Barbosa: No man of the flesh could ever stop me. The fight for this fish is a fight to the death
White Whale: WHITE WHALE!
Barbosa: HOLY GRAIL!

Barbosa:What remorseless emperor commands me. I no longer govern my soul.
White Whale: I am completely immersed in darkness. As I turn my body away from the sun

White Whale: WHITE WHALE!
Barbosa: HOLY GRAIL!

White Whale: Split your lungs with blood and thunder, When you see the White Whale. Break your backs and crack your oars men, if you wish to prevail

Barbosa: This ivory leg is what propels me. Harpoons thrust in the sky. Aim directly for his crooked brow and look him straight in the eye.

White Whale: WHITE WHALE!
Barbosa: HOLY GRAIL!
