The Big Music List [Aug. 3rd, 2009|01:04 am]
Bram (my spouse) and I discuss music often, and usually I'm at a disadvantage as we try to discuss music she likes. However I like how she's helped me to identify the sounds in 80's and 90's music that I like so much, and distinguish it from shit that I don't. I figured I'd return the favor and compile a list of various sub-genres of Electronic music that I like and listen to, along with a song that I think represents the elements I like about that subgenre best with the assistance of Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music.

House -
New Wave (Jean Michel Jarre - Oxygene Part IV)
Synthpop/American New Wave (Too many to list. New Order - Blue Monday, Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams, Information society - What's on your Mind, etc.)
Synthtron/Electroclash/Nu Synthpop/whatever (Freezepop - Bike Thief)
Hip House (Stereo MCs - Get Connected/House of Pain - Jump Around)
House Techno (C&C Music Factory - Everybody Dance Now)
Anthem House (Faithless - Insomnia)
Disco House (Junior Jack - My Feeling)
French House (Stardust - Music Sounds Better With You)
Epic House (Marco Demark - Tiny Dancer [Moto Blanco Mix] or pretty much any remix of an 80's pop song)
Vocal/Diva House (Ce Ce Peniston - Finally/Black Box - Ride on time/Operatica - Melancholy Rose)
Nu Italo Disco (O-Zone - Dragosta Din Tei)
Microhouse/Minimal House (Losoul - Synchro)

Trance -
Goth (The Sisters of Mercy - This Corrosion)
Darkwave (Clan of Xymox - Strangers)
Industrial Rock (Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM, Rob Zombie)
Electronic Body Music (Front 242 - Motion)
Electro-Industrial (In Strict Confidence - Stripped)
FuturePop (VNV Nation - Dark Angel)
Buttrock Goa/Heavy Metal Goa (Dark Soho - Combustion, Analog Pussy - Trance n Roll, pretty much every video game RPG boss track with an electric guitar ever made )
Acid Trance (Union Jack - Red Herring)
Classic Trance (Age of Love - Age of Love)
Ibiza Trance - (Chicane - Offshore)
Dream Trance (Robert Miles - Children...yes, I am ashamed)
Epic Trance (Ian Van Dahl - Castles in the Sky, Paul Van Dyk - For An Angel, Alice Deejay - Better Off Alone...yes I know it sucks)
Dutch Trance (Rank One - Airwave, Human Evolution - Project Magenta, DJ Tatana - Words, etc....jesus, I have too much of this awful shit)
Anthem Trance (Transa - Transtar/Agnelli & Nelson - El Nino)
BreakTrance (Hybrid - Finished Symphony)

Shit [Aug. 2nd, 2009|04:39 am]
I think I've encountered some daunting things in life, but for some reason the Declaration of Intent to Study Law questionnaire from the Texas Board of Law Examiners fills me with dread. Well, not for some nebulous reason. A reason. A big fuckin' reason that could destroy my career before it starts.

Lets hope that certain records relating to my past as a minor were sealed.

Perhaps we should rethink our ideas on national debt reduction [Jul. 31st, 2009|06:10 pm]

The graphic is very cheap and simplistic, so feel free to correct me if it's an incorrect assessment, but isn't it interesting that the lowest periods of national debt correspond nicely with some of the crappiest economic times for the country in the 20th century?
