    In my youth I was often classed as a goth and I still wear solid black (or a mixture of black and light black ... i.e. gray) 99% of the time -- tastefully tuned for the corporate world, of course. When lead singer Ian Curtis of Joy Division hung himself in his kitchen ... is about when I stopped listening to rock. Joy Division's members had made a pact that if they ever broke up they'd not play the same kind of music. The remaining members formed New Order ... an electronica band in the 80's ... and following them really took me down the electronica path.

    I listen to electronic, club, dance, and trance most of the time -- and it's usually cranking in the truck, too. I also like some pop, gothic rock, classic rock, old school rap (think Public Enemy, LL Cool J, Run DMC, etc.) ... and a little bit of metal. I can't stand country music.

    A friend remarked that my musical taste doesn't fit the stereotype for my truck, but agreed it absolutely goes with the transformers theme and suits me, as I eat/sleep/live/breathe in the high tech world. Heck, when I was in Austin I would often take my laptop to Ohms, a goth/industrial club that existed on 7th street in the late 90's with smoke machines, lasers, cage dancers, and DJ's playing hardcore electronica ... and do work. That's just how I roll.

    P.S. I was also a raver, but none of that pacifer toting, stuffed animal carrying panzy stuff for me. I liked the scene and to dance. And I'm talking real raves ... the kind you had to be in the know to attend because they weren't advertised and were often impromptu setups.

    What's interesting about the video I linked is that Hyper Crush is a retro band. They mix modern pop with retro 80's synth. (The synth guitar in the video is a clue.) Heck, sometimes instead of the laser-shooting fingerless glove in the video, Fontaine will wear a modified Nintendo Power Glove ( from 1989. :) They also worked sounds from Nintendo's Duck Hunt video game into one song, make Sega references, wear Hypercolor clothing in shows, etc.

    My inner geek loves this band.

    I got 12 hour doses of country music per day, 5 days a week ... for 3 solid months when I was rebuilding a VW bug into a baja bug from the floor pan up. Why? Because I traded my labor in a shop for a bay and assistance in said shop ... and the mechanics all listened to country. I've never liked it, since.

    Trance is what keeps me calm ... or calms me down. Read the first 2 paragraphs of this, sometime, as it's accurate:

    I'm in from work finally. I've always listened to some form of rock as long as I've been listening to music. Mom always listened to 80s metal when I was growing up, Dad listened to classic rock (mainly from the 70s when he was in HS and college), and I listened to what is now known as 90s alternative. My musical tastes have definitely broadened. From a musical staindpoint, I tend to like the heavier forms of rock more and, with a few exceptions, generally don't like the newer stuff. I didn't like much in the way of country when I was younger, but with a lot of the newer artists having more of a rock influence, I've listened to it a lot more in the last 8 years or so. Jason Aldean is probably one of my favorites in country because of the fairly heavy southern rock influence with the country type lyrics (which I have found I relate to far more than anything else). I also like Zac Brown Band a lot in simple appreciation of their pure musical talent (I like Rush a lot for the same reason).

    I do have a lot of variety in my music collection and I've gotten some interesting looks from people when I set my music on shuffle LOL. I really need to go through and just rewire all my speakers as I think my 20 year old speaker wiring is having trouble carrying enough current to supply my speakers (same type speakers and HU as I have in my Camaro but I rewired the Camaro myself with high quality wiring and it sounds way better at higher volumes).

    Anyway, I'm gonna head to bed pretty shortly. I'm guessing donyms in the morning.
