A need for tunes. Or something.

So yesterday, while home sick (yes, still. i can't believe it either) and doing entirely too much web surfing, I entered a Consumating conversation about music and bemoaned the fact that without a boyfriend, my music collection has become quite stale.

Yeah, that was me, being pathetic. I don't need no stinkin' boyfriend, I have friends to introduce me to new music! And the local radio stations, but that's besides the point.

So now I call upon my peeps (because I'm hip like that) to send me recommendations for music I should be listening to. If you can copy me on some that would be great, but a playlist or the like is welcome too. Luckily, the local public libraries are pretty well stocked on the music end of things.

But before I let go of the whole "boyfriend = new music" thing, I would like to thank my most recent, uh...suppliers for their contributions to my collection. Thank you Steph for Sufjan Stevens. I listen to him over, and over, and over again. Thank you Half-Normal Mult, for letting me snag 5 albums worth of music, much of it unfamiliar. And thank you Brandy, for last year's Holiday, Children's, and Easy Listening mixes.

So with that, I now declare Brandy to be my new boyfriend. Because on the Internet, you can be any sex that you want to be. Or gender. Or species, for that matter. But Brandy, you've been treating me bad. You never call, or write. Baby, where have you been? Gimme a call, update your blog, I miss youuuuuuuu!!!! [sob!]

Hey. I blame it on the cold medicine.

And don't forget Last.fm!

Sadly I'm in the same boat and have no time for song surfing right now...

Consider yourself Bloglined!! And I think you take the cake; adding you brought in 53 prior posts. Whew! Don't want me to miss anything, do you? ;)

Sorry to hear you've been sick. :(

I'll be happy to give music recommendations, if you'll reciprocate. Too, too busy at the moment though, except I do recommend listening to WEFT more often. Lots of assorted things to be heard there.

I know this is beside the point, and I know that I'm probably going to regret this blog comment.  And Shea says that I'm about to alienate single women everywhere.  But it just has to be said.  I can stay silent no longer.

I hate Sufjan Stevens.

His music is corny and lame.

There.  I said it.  Feels good to get that out of my system.

Readers of this comment stream may go ahead and hate me now.

By the way, dispite my earlier comment, I do have to say that Brandy makes an excellent boyfriend.  You have good tastes, Yana.

(Even though we disagree on the whole Sufjan thing.)

So, what you're trying to say, Josh, is that our love is doomed from the beginning? You bastard! [throws plates and other noisy breakable things at his head]

And a long-belated thanks to Mark and Richard, who...well, basically were no direct help at all.

Damn fellow busy grad students. They basically expect me to seek out the music myself. Bah.
