How to make an EmP Ingredients:
5 parts anger
5 parts silliness
5 parts ego Method:
Layer ingredientes in a shot glass. Add wisdom to taste! Do not overindulge!I'm your only friend, I'm not your only friend but I'm a little glowing friend but really I'm not actually your friend but I am.
I was given an Ipod this weekend. It's only a little 2gig nano, but I guess I should put stuff on it.
God, I'm going to regret this.
Hit me up with stuff and I'll listen to it. Keep my large negativity towards music these days in mind, or else!
So far I've only thrown on a few Feeder albums I had lying around near the computer. Boo, don't tell Veems that this post is here, otherwise I'll be forced to break your legs.

You're going to regret this. Since this will be almost as long as my penis, I'll add genres so you can pick what sounds cool.
I guess I'll cover the "indie & alternative list" and leave frat boy slop to sportsman.
The Arcade Fire - Funeral (Indie / Orchestral Rock)
Asobi Seksu - Citrus (Dream Pop/Shoegazer)
Beirut - Gulag Orkestar (Eastern European Folk)
Belle & Sebastian - If You're Feeling Sinister (chamber pop)
Boris - Pink (Japanese drone & sludge)
Bjork - Homogenic (Bjork)
Built to Spill - Keep It Like a Secret (indie rock)
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - s/t (indie 'vocals so high that it sounds like his balls haven't dropped' rock)
Cursive - The Ugly Organ (the emo cello)
The Decemberists - Picaresque (indie rock & sea shanties)
Deerhoof - Runner's Four (experimental rock)
Destroyer - Destroyer's Rubies (indie)

Oh and I suppose everyone needs a Red Hot Chili Peppers album. How about that one where all the songs are about making love and California?

Starkweather - Croatoan (metalcore)
NoMeansNo - One (punk)

Ulver - Blood Inside (electronic/prog)
Autechre - Chiastic Slide (electronic)

More of an "I've been digging this lately" list but you should at least find a couple agreeable things across it.

Don't listen to Genj. His music is nothing but evil lies that pave the way to crying in the darkness while wearing your girlfriend's jeans. As for Blu's suggestions, Autechre is cool.
What do you normally listen to?
User: Genj Title: Posted: February 11, 2007 (10:45 PM)
Why would anyone apply a few emo stereotypes to indie fans? No dude, we're just supposed to be jerks that bash anything with more than 100,000 fans.
EDIT - Except if you listen to mopey stuff like this.

A Chili Peppers album about making love and California? I guess that means all of them.
I'll make a list that puts the others to shame hopefully in the near future.
User: hobunn Title: Posted: February 15, 2007 (02:23 PM)
Stereophonics - Word Gets Around

To be honest, what's left of my musical tastes are a lot more akin to Genj's than they are to Boo's. I'm not a metal fan; something to do with the flat bass, the nonsensical lyrics and the abuse of POWERING the same three cords, I think.
The only bands I've really followed since I gave on on music a few years back have been Porcupine Tree, Feeder and Hundred Reasons. Obligitory bands like the Foos and Subway have broken through my indifference, too.
