Music for the Masses

I’m a musical person.  I listen to music for artistic inspiration; I listen to music to keep my exercise stamina strong; and I listen to music because I like it.  Duh.

When people share music with me, I enjoy that — even if I may not like the music they suggest, I still appreciate the gesture.  I like sharing music I discover as well.  Back in my first years of university (early 2000s), my goal was to make every person I knew addicted to Muse like I was.  Ahhhh…  I still love Muse’s old albums, though their newer stuff isn’t for me.

And so to finally get to the point of this long, convoluted explanation: I wanted to share what I’m listening to and loving right now.
