Stop laughing this is serious. Well as serious as I can get.
I am doing a writing exercise, and need to create a character that is cutting edge, only my age is showing. Big time.
The character a 25 year old girl. Me, a 36 year old woman. See the issue.
I got my musical taste from my Uncle. Uncle was a metal head, and so was I. Sepultura, Pantera, My Dying Bride, COC, Testament, Overkill, Motley Crue (Nikki Sixx is still a god!) you get the idea. I have a younger sister Ninja, who I used to go to concerts with back 13 years ago, boy bands mostly. Her tastes have gone in a different direction from day one, Ninja and I are night and day to each other. Anyways, my musical evolution went from Sepultura to Frank Sinatra without missing a beat. Uncle's went to classical opera. Yeah, no joke. Getting a lift from him now is filled with opera singers on his cd player.
I know for someone who spends their life online, I am so out of touch with pop-culture. Are goths even still goths? Are punks even still listening to Sex Pistols ? What's going on here?
This is the big downfall of being a writer, you spend more time alone in your own world in your own head and loose total ability to socialize.
Someone help! Music, seems I need some new stuff as does my character. Leave me some notes on what I should be adding to my music collection.
