Matisyahu live (video) [18 May 2006|08:45pm]

The young talented man himself

"My goal for making music is to try and uplift and be a positive voice that people can relate to," Matisyahu said.

My music is not for Hasidic Jews," Matisyahu said. "It is aimed for people that listen to that type of music, and it's generally not Orthodox people. There are a ton of Jews that are into my music, but it tends to be more secular."

For those of you who are not familiar with Matisyahu, he's a 26 yr old hasidic reggae artist who combines traditional dancehall reggae with lyrics that express the fundamental ideologies of Orthodox Judaism. A lot of his lyrics are based on Jewish mystical concepts and improving oneself and the world. Overall, though he sings about religious concepts, his plan is not to convert his listeners. I go through an uplifting powerful experience everytime I listen to his music, it's a sound of faith. I tell you, the man is a pure genius at what he does! To say Matisyahu Miller is not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill hip-hop-reggae artist would be the understatement of the millennium.

So...

anyone into Jack Johnsons music? If you're not familiar with him or his music, he's a laid back surfer from Hawaii who plays relaxing, chill, upbeat and also mellow tracks. I've been listening to his music since way back and find him to be extremely talented. Check him out! If you like Jack, check out Ben Harper, Donovan Frankenreiter, & G Love and The Special Sauce.

Music Rules [06 Jul 2005|04:04pm]

Bands I like and why:
Nirvana- It was the first band I really got in to and pretty much started me in music. I just always felt I was the only one that felt that emotions couldn't be said with just one word like "sad" or "happy" and Nirvana's lyrics took emotion and broke it down to what he felt by not describing it as just one word but almost telling a story which talked about a feeling that was hard to describe and I don't know..it just seems their lyrics made a lot of sense to me in some odd way. Also Mr. Cobain's powerful voice and emotion he puts in to it mixed with a catchy melody and "harder" rock guitars then a lot of bands.

The Beatles-I grew up listening to them and I really feel that they started rock. They played a type of music that no one ever played before and played it the best. They were catchy and different and really are great at what they do. Its not only catchy music but a lot of their later stuff had a lot of meaning (white album era..so on)
The Pixies-with the mix of alternative guitars, screaming vocals and odd lyrics I can't help but love the pixies. They seem to know what they are doing and have a great time at it. Its catchy with a hard edge to it and it always seems to have you singing along even though you probably sing it better then they do one the cd. heehee.

Sonic Youth-This band i feel is so great mostly because they are so different. They play something they they want to play and aren't influensed by modern music at all. No matter what happens it seems Sonic Youth is always still just a great hard rock band. They never go soft. Personaly I love the insane guitars which have complicated tunings. I also think that the vocals really have a lot of feeling to them...kick ass band man.

Fugazi-They are half of Minor Threat plus some alternative guitars. Its like taking a already kick ass band and making then cool and alternative (which is what i like..heh) and well I feel that their lyrics..much like Minor Threat are socialy aware and important and their music is powerful and different then other bands.

Charles Bronson (the band)- Well the only thing that I can really say about this band is that I like them 'cause they kick ass. Hah. They are just a fast screaming hardcore crust band and I think they are just pretty kick ass. Just a band with great attitude.

Well that was already 5 bands and I don't feel like writing about the others that i like because my hand hurts and i am tired. Well just so you know here is a list of the rest (and the ones i said) of the bands I like... (i made it for like a myspace or some shit) The Breeders, Organized Confusion..Nirvana, The Kills, The White Stripes, The Velvet Underground, The Pixes, Courtney Love, The Smashing Pumpkins, T Rex (thanks kristen) Radiohead, Sonic Youth, Fugazi, Hole, Tripping Dasiys, Louis XIV, Mudhoney, The Germs, Charles Bronson (the band), Garbage, All Girl Summer Fun Band, The Beatles, Mates of State, Coldplay, The Cure, Hole, Queens of the Stone Age, Marcy's Playground, Horror Pops, The Vines, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd, R.E.M, The Ramones, Robert Johnson, Chet Baker, Miles Davis, The Shins, The Dresden Dolls, The Softies, The Eagles, Elliott Smith, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Flogging Molly, Sex Pistols, Foo Fighters, Minor Threat, The New York Dolls, Spazz and Syndicated Apple.

I don't like modern music but I am aware of it. I just choose to listen to music with a little more meaning. I mean I know of emo bands or whatever I just don't really like them.. I wouldn't say hate though. So i guess my five least favorite bands would be like ummm anything i didn't list above..heehee.

I mostly listen to rock, alternative, indie, grunge, jazz, blues etc. blah blah and well stuff like. I like it well because i do...and it has meaning and the people in the bands care about the music and not fucking fashion or whatever is hip and new.

I don't like country at all. Thats pretty much it. Although I don't listen to rap I really have nothing against it. Country music just reminds me of hicks and I don't find it catchy. (not to offend anyone).


and ummm is that it? am i missing something i need? i kind of totally don't understand this system. go easy on me. i'm only 13.

LOVES: Frank Zappa - Son of Mr. Green Jeans - nuff said I hope;  Captain Beefheart - screaming out of tune; Ani DiFranco - for being righteous; Dashboard Confessional - to remind me that men have emotions; My Chemical Romance - new found band - fun to scream to in the car; The White Stripes - gets stuck in my head; Johnny Cash - for being bad ass and eternally cool; Tool & A Perfect Circle - mad at them now for covering imagine .. grr; tons of other stuff, would have to go on and on all night ... Dylan - poet; GnR - my middle school romance with axl rose; radiohead - perfection; etc etc etc etc .... 

HATES: There's not much I really hate, I used to say I hate certain music because it didn't fit into the personality I was trying to fit into that week, now I don't descriminate.  I appreciate all music where there is talent.  I dislike rap with sampling - or anything stolen or overdone.

I like all types of music; metal, emo, punk, folk, blah blah. I have bands I secretly like, for example, eminem -- eek!  If you go by pure amount of music, I own about 45 Frank Zappa CDs, 25 Dylan, and all of Ani DiFranco, although lately I haven't been listening to any of those three artists, I've been obsessed with My Chemical Romance...

I'm not a fan of country, although I don't hate it.  Just don't like the sound.  Plus my ex-husband only listened to country, so I dislike it by association.  It's a principle thing ...

I'm not sure if I understand this last question, but I'd like to debate Freud, he was a coke head, and is the "father" of many theories on psychology.  I would like to pick at him a bit...

Hey bitches, it's me, the moderator that for a long time has not been active in this community.

Well I made a new community, amdstrikesback. Why? Because I don't like people having to apply only to get rejected, the ones rejected are always the most fun. It would be like if there was an idiot genocide, no more annoyance, but no more fun.

Anyways, this one should be promising so come on down, fill out an AP, and fuck being nice. Be as brutal as you want to be.

While watching Arizona dream, I had an argument when they played Iggy Pop's "in the death car". My dad swear on god that it is inspired (actually he said covered) by a late 60s early 70s Italian song. Does anyone knows about this?

A Dirty Shame soundtrack [18 Oct 2004|02:38pm]
rockabillygrrl
Has anyone here seen the new John Waters movie, A DIRTY SHAME? I came across the download section on the movie’s site and gave the soundtrack a listen. It is equally, if not more funny, than the actual movie! Just think Rockabilly with an X rating! Smashing, don’t you say? Here’s a link for you to check it out.

My second entry:

Am I the only one who thinks hardcore dancing is gay as fuck?

I typically see this at metal-core shows or certain death metal shows (death metal to a MUCH lesser extent though). The band on stage is giving you an audio assault. The guitars are crunching and the lead singer's face is blood red from screaming. These guys obviously think they're badasses. Much to their suprise, they glance down and notice members of the audience are standing alone doing anaerobic windmill exercises. Some are even doing psuedo-break dance moves on the ground, maybe even some spin kicks for good measure. If these guys wanted to prove their masculinity, perhaps they should kick each other's asses in the mosh pit, because their size 2 pants they bought in the girls section of Gap sure aren't proving anything.
