There’s not much about me that I’m “afraid” to admit, (possibly nothing, but I try not to use the words “nothing” or “never”) least of all taste in music.
I was once told that my taste made the word “eclectic” nervous. I love 60s rock, British invasion, 40s and 50s swing, 70s rock, 80s punk, 90s grunge and alternative, and all things in between. I listen to Elton John and Beethoven when I want to relax or be melancholy. I listen to acid rock at the gym. I like angry music with lyrics that throw around words with three and four syllables. I like music in German and Japanese, as long as the melody is strong enough that the words I don’t understand blend in well enough that I get the meaning. Like good opera. I’m not opposed to an excellent aria here or there, nor songs by Britney, Janet, Christina, Madonna, or the herd of boys bands that blew by us in the 90s and early 2000s. I enjoy few artists/bands with great depth, meaning I like one or two songs and move on, but I believe Aerosmith, Seether, Oakenfold, Enya, Kosheen, Alabama 3, Adele, Nine Inch Nails, Rob Zombie, Cale Alexander, and Shinedown have the top spots of the moment. Subject to change. I’m big on soundtracks, collection of hits, and the thing that will sell me fastest on a song are the lyrics. I always hear the words.
Thanks for asking!
kellywyre The real question is … it possible to charm you with banjo music?
afhenley: Yes. Yes it ENTIRELY is possible.
*cues dueling banjos*
afhenley: Why yes, I do think you’d look charming while bent over a log and squealing like a… well. Less porcine and more homo…sapien, but yes. :D
How do these conversations always end with me bent over something? *eyes kellywyre*
Natural order of the evening, if you ask me. And oh look! You did. :D
*Nudges some Caravan Palace up in on this*

EVERYONE GO BUY THIS FUCKING BOOK AND READ IT RIGHT NOW ASKLAFHALKFHGLAKDFJALGH
I should have KNOWN BETTER because of this AUTHOR, but this evening I thought “Oh, I have a few hours to kill before bed, I’ll get a few chapters in before I have to go to bed and sleep like a normal person, because I have work in the morning” Almost six hours later, I’ve finished it, and I’m still FOAMING AT THE MOUTH because of how fucking awesome it was. Incredible action, mouth-watering steaminess, grit, romance, characters that I adored within the first few chapters, and that very particular brand of Kelly Wyre phraseology that made me a hardcore addict of hers in the first place.
GO BUY IT
If you’re not watching this right now, I’m judging you. If you don’t go out and buy her book after watching this, I’m judging you EVEN HARDER.
