What band/musician is most important to you and why?
In general, this depends on my mood. Like entirely. I have at least 25 Pandora stations on my phone/account. I listen to so many different things that I can't even come close to picking one musician.
I most respect artists who are honest and open. Artists who write their own music, based off of their own lives and their own experiences. Anyone can sing a song. Anyone can read lyrics, memorize them, and sing them. It takes true talent to write music.
I read Melissa Etheridge's autobiography 3 times. I enjoyed her music beforehand ("Come to my Window" is my fall-back song when I go karaoke-ing). She writes all her stuff. After reading why she wrote her songs... What happened to bring the lyrics to her, the songs sound different. I can somehow hear her emotions... Her heartbreak, her pain, her joy.
Do you read? What are your favorite books?
I do read, just not as much as I would like due to not having the time.
I have a few favorite books...
I love "Go Ask Alice" about a troubled teen... In fact, I think all teenagers (especially girls) should have to read it... It really gives you perspective and compassion.
I love all Nicholas Sparks books... It amazes me that there's such a sappy, romantic, brilliantly eloquent man on this planet and time after time, I fall right into his stories, and fall in love with his characters.
I love James Patterson, too. His books are so incredibly captivating and I get sucked into them, too.
As you can see, I don't have a favorite "genre", I just like what I like... I love reading and will pick up just about anything, but if I'm not "into it" 50 pages in, I put it down and don't ever try again.
Now that I'm caught up on my 30-day thingymajig, I think I'm going to do a FO entry now...
