“Jerry, Newman and I are engaged in a epic struggle for world domination.”

It’s been a fantastic week. I’m still listening to Synthesis by Evanescence several times a day. It will be a while before I’m ready to listen to anything else. (This always happens with unicorns.) M. is overtly studying my behavior.

I don’t mind, of course. I just thought of four ways to elaborate on that, and they all made me laugh out loud. M. asked me if I’m “over Stevie Nicks” now that Evanescence just rocked my world. (I walked away without saying a word. See Alison adult, then feel smug about it.)

I think he was just teasing me. Especially since I insisted he watch some Stevie Nicks interviews with me on YouTube yesterday, (to get a different perspective.) I’ll ask later because now it’s going to bother me. I’m still pretty timid about assuming what I interpret is in the same universe as that of others. (For good reason.)

I’m astonished how little anxiety I’ve experienced this week. My ears are a bit raw from wearing uncomfortable headphones for hours. I’ll be ecstatic when wireless headphones improve. At least enough to completely replace wired cans for music. They’re podcast ready at this point IMHO.

I’m researching a new pair of critical listening over-ear headphones. It’s probably a good thing Evanescence doesn’t release albums too often, as this happened last time. The mastering is superb in Synthesis. I haven’t watched the making of videos yet, but when I do, I’ll be hoping to see which headphones they used, (then praying I can afford them.)

I’ll never own a pair of Beats. That’s my precise level of an audiophile. Heh.

Dear Pharell Williams, please (all over) design some Audio Technica Limited Edition ATH-MX50’s with built-in Bluetooth 4.2, Amp/DAC, memory foam/breathable pads, and a dope hard case. Love, me. I’d pay $499 (with minimal whining.) Please. πŸ™ƒ

I’m reading Oathbringer, presently. It’s an uber-epic novel in a series within the Cosmere (universe.) It’s going to take me a while to finish my first read, and I’ll re-read it several times. It’s part of my journey. Brandon Sanderson earned a lot of influence in my life. (Right up there with Stevie Nicks, and just as gently.)

I had a shower cry over Al Franken’s outing as a predator. He came from Hollywood, which made it less shocking. But it still hurts a lot.

Dear predators, predatory behavior makes loving you painful at best. Please grow forward. Love, Evolved humanity.

My inner 5-year-old just called me a hippie and suggested I move to California, so I’m off to beat my drums.

  • I also go on binges and obessions with my favorite albums, songs or artists! Unfortunately I have been not listening to much music the last couple months, I am back to it again though as I need music in my life. It is like my life support. Haha My last music kick was a few months ago I think it was, I listened to Rumors repeated the whole album front to back for like everyday for a week or so. Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon is another album I remember clearly hearing for the first time and spent many dates with the album lying on my bedroom floor with huge speakers. I have many similar stories with other albums, but that one always sticks out. xD

  • I knew you were cool!! I spent a long time with Rumors, too. I have my desktop monitors positioned perfectly for listening (now.) Music is like spiritual crack hahaha. Life support sounds way better. πŸ’œ

  • Grrrrl, you are pure genius!! How do you do that?? “See Alison adult, then feel smug about it” – I may need to borrow this one! πŸ˜‚. Your post made me chuckle out loud. I might’ve even chortled. Little Sisters tend to look up to their Older Sisters, right? Does that mean I’m a good Little Sister?? πŸ˜˜πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺπŸŒΊπŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’š
