Playlist – March 31st, 2010

I’m back mutha f@ckas!  Man, I missed my show!  With this Spring, I feel a rebirth for many things and am actually filled with a new hope now.  I’m not sure how that translated into the show though, as some of the lyrical content was genuinely grim, and some tracks were rather somber.  Let’s liken in to cleaning out one’s closet, and with that comes all kinds of stuff.  Its been a brutal time for me, but I try to remain optimistic and excited about a better future.  Music is wildly emotional, be it through lyrics, tone, chord structure, or some combination of all or other factors, but its great to be able to feel the gamut, and not just some narrow strip of the palette.  When you bleed, you know you’re alive, yet knowing when to staunch the wound will keep you from dying.
