Whatcha Listenin' to?
Music has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. Whether it was listening to my dad singing southern gospel with the choir in church, or my mom's extensive collection of R&B, Motown, and 70s records (mine now, thanks mom!), this type of music will always have a special place in my heart. Of course, as I got older I explored other genres and developed my own taste, but I still love the music I've grown up with despite no longer being religious (putting my iPod on shuffle often looks like Gladys Knight and the Pips --> Hatsune Miku --> Dolly Parton). Here I'll be posting about some of my favorite albums and artists in no particular order.

Favorite Lyrics

"I've been given such a gift

Shame to take advantage of it

Watch it, wasting leaves you wanting more

Be careful what you're wishing for" - Watered Down

"A full collapse and caving in

Just wait for faith to kick in

I lost track of time as i stood in line

Amidst the other believers" - On the Cross

Favorite Lyrics


The funny limbs that grow underground

That keep you from falling down

Don't you think that you'll need them now?

Just find a place where no one knows of

Your redneck past

Yeah, you can easily dispose of your redneck past

You'll show them all back home" - Your Redneck Past

The Mountain Goats - The Life of the World to Come

Favorite Songs: Psalms 40:2, Genesis 3:23, Hebrews 11:40, Romans 10:9, Isaiah 45:23

Favorite Lyrics

"And someone leads the beast in on his chain

But I know you're thinking of me cause it's just about to rain

So I won't be afraid of anything ever again" - 1 John 4:16

"If my prayer be not humble, make it so

In these last hours, if the spirit waits in check, help me let it go

And should my suffering double, let me never love you less

Let every knee be bent and every tongue confess

And I won't get better

But someday I'll be free

'Cause I am not this body

That imprisons me" - Isaiah 45:23
