Just a gal who does way too many Nuzlockes but never documents them.

I generally prefer to play classical music instead of listening to it, but this one's great on both sides. Some parts of the Friska absolutely kill your right forearm muscles, and I still have no idea how she plays some sections with such speed and accuracy, but hopefully I'll get there eventually. This piece singlehandedly rekindled my love for piano - I stopped taking lessons three years ago, and until I started trying out this song, I'd often go weeks without practicing at all. Nowadays, I try to get in at least half an hour a day on just this piece, and it's absolutely fun as hell.

Its peering eyes are all that can be seen of its mysterious innards.

I've been really enjoying Colin J. Rudd's versions of the songs from The Lord of the Rings and The Adventures of Tom Bombodil. There's just something so wistful about his voice and the way he sings the songs... I find it enchanting.

I've been on a lot of music kicks this year, but this one that's just starting up of "let's actually legitimately get into more 90s emo" has gotta be one of the best ones so far. Next song will prolly be a Jawbreaker one once I figure out my new favorite of theirs. It will be a mighty challenge. For now, something a bit later.

You're in a cult, call your dad. I've been on a bus and listening to My Favorite Murder for two hours. It's been one of my favorite podcasts for two years now!! I went to their live show in 2017 and it was perfect. ❤

Because what better way to psych yourself up for the Pokemon League than a song that makes you feel invincible?

Mostly JAM Project, random anime openings, and Symphogear music recently, not that unusual.

Well, ok, there is one other song.

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.

I lied earlier, I'm just listening to good noisy shit now. This song's too fucking intense and groovy in the best way I feel like I could write a whole novel just listening to it

Addicted to carbonated beverages and chocolate. Can, and will, talk forever about her interests if she finds someone who will listen

A mellow, melancholic tune for my not meloncholic storylocke, lol

Theres a local radio station that plays a lot of funky music. Sometimes it's a little creepy because the station shares a frequency with a catholic station and sermons get mixed into my music. uh not really going any where with this anyway heres a song i heard on that station that was mixed with a sermon about satan

Tough to find and even harder to catch, this Pokémon is said to have their head in the clouds.
My friend sent me this insane composition based off of a song by Audrey Hepburn and I'm obsessed.
