I’ve always enjoyed music very much but it wasn’t until high school and the days of Napster and Lime Wire that I truly fell in love with it. Through these new sites I was able to discover new bands and listen to music other than what was on the radio or MTV (you know, when MTV still played music videos) or the CDs my parents owned. I felt like I had found music that was all mine. My friend Lauren and I would burn CDs together and just hang out and listen to music for HOURS. It was awesome. I would create my own fonts and draw full pages of lyrics in shapes of hearts and balloons and such while I probably should’ve been paying attention in class. This is the music that got me to start regularly attending and enjoying shows. While my tastes have certainly refined since the good ole days of high school, I can still sing the lyrics to every song on every album I mention below. Actually, I’m getting pretty nostalgic just listening to all these songs now<3 Oops, my 5 Fandom Friday is mega-sized this week. I just couldn’t cut it down, so happy 12 fandom Friday!
