WRITING - GOT TO BREAK TO DO CHORES ETC
(an account of the previous week of my life inclusive)
Was up pretty late last night. Just messing around on my phone. Bought a few of Eminem's old albums. I hated rap/hip-hop/R&B whatever for the majority of my life, probably just because that's what I was taught, both my parents and all my family hate the genres all-together and have never exposed me to it. But lately I've been listening to his stuff, I still can't really say I like rap as a genre, but I do like Eminem's stuff, because I'm about as introverted and deep as it gets, and his lyrics (well, after his drug phase) mean a lot to me. Working my way through the albums currently. Namely, "sing for the moment" "mockingbird" "when I'm gone" "stan" and "Halie's song" are all pretty good lyrically. He certainly sets an example for all the s**t I'm used to hearing from that area of music. After doing some research on the Internet and watching 8mile, I found that Dr.Dre had been a heavy influence for his style of music so I'm thinking, maybe I listen to some of Dre's stuff and other's who follow him and see if that's the key feature that's catching my appeal.
The genre's I'd mainly been raised on, rock/heavy rock/metal etc, basically a standard 4-5 piece band who sings about either relationship issues, current world issues, war, or drugs, I still probably enjoy more instrumentally, but I don't feel are as intelligent as Eminem for the most part.
Just went and got a feed from the shop... and a can of Monster import and a dedicated hour to write out this journal entry. Maybe that seems like a long time, but my thoughts are a mess. Never in order. It always takes me a while to collect my thoughts. Part of the reason why, even though I'd love to, I can never manage to write a story regardless of all the various storylines I've thought would be taken well. Eh.
