My dear Readers,
I will not rant on about how "music is my life"... i'm sure it's been done a million times over on this site. Well fuck that self indulgent phrase! Music is not MY life... Music IS LIFE. Full Stop. End of Story. Gooodbye. The end.
Yes that's right, Music isn't just your life, or mine for that matter; It's LIFE itself. Ok enough with waxing philosophical for now. Introductions are in order. My name is Soph. I am 21, from Wollongong NSW (about an hour out of sydney). With my Dad's obsession with Alice Cooper and Tchiakovsky and Mothers with The Stones and INXS, i guessi nver really had a shot at a music free life.
I play Guitar, I have my old faithful.. a knock- off Les Paul, & the love of my life.. my cherry red Epiphone Futura Prophecy Custom Explorer!!
I've just come home from the land of METAL... Helsinki Finland. A journey undertaken specifically to chase a sound.
I love METAL, GLAM- ROCK & all things Sleaze rock&roll. The likes of TURBONEGRO/ THE 69 EYES/ and CHILDREN OF BODOM own me... I think my trip to Helsinki now speaks for itself..
These are my foremost favorites, but it's ALL good. Classical, punk, indie, electro... tomato/ tomarto really.
I Have a degree in JOURNALISM from the University of Wollongong. If there were any other love affair consuming my world other then music; it would be WRITING. Combining the two just seems natural, & it was the main reason for me undertaking the degree.
Well i hope this hasn't been too self-indulgent for you my dear. I'll leave with one last contension.
music is not your life. Music IS life. Goodbye. The End.
