Top 5 Music Artists

I love my alternative rock, especially 90s alt rock and this has been really hard to narrow down to just 5. I think right now my answers would be:

Day 3) 5 Favorite Music Artists

1) Foo Fighters
Now this never changes. The Foo Fighters have been my favourite band for as long as I can remember and I can’t see this changing any time soon. I just plain adore them. And my favourite song of theirs would probably be Times Like These – hence the title of my journal

2) Green Day
The best live concert I ever want to was Green Day at the Milton Keynes Bowl way back in 2005. They were incredible, they absolutely blew me away. I’ve been a fan since the first time I heard Basket Case as a teenager and its still one of my favourite songs

3) Fall Out Boy
Honestly, I was kind of determined not to like FOB. Sugar We’re Going Down was so overplayed and I got so fed up of it that I was just not interested. But they kind of crept under my defences and somehow they’re now one of my favourites. How does that work? Favourite song is probably My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark

4) blink-182
It was love at first listen to All The Small Things. I went straight out and bought Enema Of The State and proceeded to fall even more in love. I’ve not heard any of their more recent work and I’m not a huge fan of their early stuff but like Enema, Take Off Your Pants & Jacket and Blink-182 are my jam.

5) My Chemical Romance
Another band I didn’t expect to like but their music grabbed me when watching Kerrang one day. Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge is one of my most played CDs ever – like, I had to replace it because I killed it, level of overplayed. You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison is easily my favourite track of theirs

I think a special mention needs to be given to Linkin Park. RIP Chester ♥

Right now I am listening to System Of A Down – Chop Suey!

A Few Of My Favourite Things

I found one of those 30 day memes on Pinterest that really caught my eye – it’s all about Top 5 favourites and includes topics such as actors, actresses, movies, books, models, animals, fears… I think it looks quite interesting and I’m really looking forward to starting it. I sort of want to start it today because it feels like new things should start on a Monday, but the month starts tomorrow. So tomorrow I’ll start it.

Right now I am –
reading: JK Rowling – Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows
watching: Nothing, but I’m poking at Netflix to see if anything catches my attention. I’m thinking of catching up on Saving Hope (which is downloading because I’m a naughty girl!) and finishing Forever. Although I’m quite tired so I do’t know if I’ll stay awake to watch 3 episodes tonight. At least I’ll have good dreams if I fall asleep in any of those!
listening to: An 80s rock playlist on Spotify
eating: I’ve just ordered a pizza because I’m feeling tired and lazy

Welcome!

• My name is Hannah. I’m in my mid-30s, live alone in England with two cats. I’ve been with my boyfriend Ben for almost 7 years and we have no plans to get married.

• Please let me know if I say something that you find offensive or tactless, because I can be quite thoughtless when I say things sometimes, so I’d appreciate being told so I don’t do it again. I don’t mean it maliciously, I simply don’t think before inserting my foot into my mouth.

• I’m a huge fan of 90s/2000s alternative rock/grunge. I love Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Semisonic, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Muse, Linkin Park, The White Stripes, 3 Doors Down, Queens Of The Stone age… I have a last.fm account – it’s a new one because, like my old LJ, I’ve lost all the log-in details

• I love science fiction! My favourites are Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Farscape, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Andromeda. I’m currently really loving Dark Matter, Killjoys, iZombie and Stitchers.

• I sold my soul to Joss Whedon many decades ago and he’s never let me down. I have an immense love for that man and his work.

• The superhero films and TV shows of recent years are a current obsession of mine. I love both DC and Marvel, although Marvel possibly slightly more because I love how it’s all connected – it’s all one timeline whereas with DC there’s these shows here in this bubble, these movies here in this bubble. I’m liking the new Justice League era of movies

• I have a Bsc in Psychology but have never put it to use and work in a bank. People fascinate me endlessly and I have thought of doing some form of study in Social Psychology/Sociology or Philosophy.
I’ve just started learning German through Duolingo

• I used to be a big bookworm and I’m trying to pick that back up again. I love science-fiction, fantasy and horror, although I think my current favourite genre is young adult urban fantasy. I’m re-reading the Harry Potter series and have just started The Prisoner Of Azkaban
You can find me on goodreads (which is another new account, I mentioned losing all my log in details for all my social media, yes?)

• I think this is pretty much everything, although if there’s anything you would like to know, feel free to ask!
