Oh, I don’t exactly watch the tv, either. I follow a few forums and a news site or two that made me aware of it.

And I’ve posted a bit about my religious beliefs before. “Think for thyself” is high up there, and as for hell, I tend to go Faustian.

For this is hell, nor am I out of it.

Certainly explains the forecasted high of 104 today.

In any case,back to the music. You may think, looking at my posts, that I don’t listen to any modern music. So, I thought I’d play something slightly more modern.

And, in answer to the implied question, I do listen to modern music; It just usually isn’t modern mainstream music. But there are exceptions.

AM Radio – Everclear

This really should have been in my Radio post. A great song celebrating the age of the radio. Odd thing, within a few years of these songs was when I stopped listening to mainstream radio, for the most part.

It’s mainly because a lot of radio stations only play the best music of the last few years, and the “best” was getting worse and worse, though that could be subjective.

Wonderful – Everclear

I’ve talked before about liking songs with a lot of emotion in them. This is one of them. Having parents who are divorced, there is a lot that clicks with me on this song.

On the other hand, I’m not impressed with the video. A bunch of children leer at me with hideous grins. Then they start doing asexual ameoba-like reproduction.

And the lead singer is kinda freaky looking. Still, I love the song, at least.

I Will Buy You A New Life – Everclear

Note: If your obsessive stalky ex-boyfriend shows up singing at your door, claiming he’ll buy you a new life, don’t trust him. Call the police. Am I the only one who thinks the lady in this video is an idiot for opening the door at the end?
