party cause it reminds me of DGD and partly becasue it reminds me of a painful personal experience3. What is the most annoying song in the world?
Gotta be that 'annoying thing' song or something like that... THAT should make people depressed, not listening to emo4. You all time favourite band?
Tough one... probably Joy Division
by a whisker over Opeth
and DJ Shadow5. Your newly discovered band is?Enslaved
Got the new album and was hugely impressed by it and started working through their back catalogue. I love their older, more conventional black metal stuff too. Russian Circles
Love their new album too... not particularly innovative, but it still seems perfect to me.6. Best Female Voice?Lisa Gerrard
... but I adore Kate Rogers
' voice too7. Best Male Voice?
Mikael Akerfeldt from Opeth predictably8. Music type you find yourself listening to most?
Metal. I was into other genres initially but it seems to have sucked me in =/. I'm trying to get into math/noise rock stuff like Don Caballero

, fast-tempo Amon Tobin
, thrash artists like Death Angel10. What do you listen to when you want to calm down?

There isn't a most
hated band per se, but I strongly dislike mainstream rap artists14. Song that makes you think?
Anthing by Neurosis
. I don't have to as much as when I first listened to them, but that first time I thought: 'Er.... what?'15. Band that you think the world should love as much as you do?Porcupine Tree
. Without a shadow of a doubt. I mean their material is hardly inaccessible both in terms of the listening experience and in terms of availiblilty16. Coolest music video?

gig)21. Are you in a band?
Nope23. Ever dated a musician?
Nada24. Do you wish yourself that you were a musician?
Yes, but then I think I'd get confused with what music I'd make, given the types of music I like25. Best chick band you know of?
?26. Last song that you heard on the radio/cd etc?
I gave up listening to music radio years ago as well as using a CD player. I guess you can count Enter (The Transformed God Basement)
as I listened to it off the CD while I was ripping it onto my HDD27. What do you think of Classical music?
I'd enjoyed the stuff my dad used to play when I was younger, Bach
, etc. Pretty obvious stuff really but I haven't had the time to get more into it28. What do you think of Country music?
Another untried experience really29. What do you think of Death metal?
Love it! =D30. Last BIG band that you saw live?Saxon
. If you mean big as in commercial success then it would have to be Iron Maiden
at Reading Festival last year O.o31. Are you a groupie?
Nah. Too lazy32. Do you listen to music in foreign languages?
Some black and folk metal in their native language... heh also that one (excellent track) by Sorskogen33. What famous musician would you like to fuck!?
Er.. none. I want a nice quiet girl and we could live somewhere in the country with a nice cottage and grow our own food and have three kids and...34. Worst concert moment?
Seeing the mighty Dark Tranquillity
and having to put up with a bunch of damn kids calling for the next band, Chimaira
. I have to admit I've never got that angry at a gig before: I wanted to drag them out of the crowd, chuck them out of the gig room and say 'F**k off if you can't appreciate a band as good as DT'35. Funny concert moment?
Seeing the funny expression on Laurant from Pelican
's face as he contemplates using the mic36. Sad concert moment?

Nothing wrong with being proud to show what music artist you like, even if I (or others) don't like them55. What music sub-culture do you feel like you belong to?
None, really. My friends are into different music types so I dont' group together with others who are just into the same music. Anyway some metalheads probably wouldn't like the fact that I'm a huge Coldcut
and Horace Silver
fan56. What song is stuck in your head right now?I've Lived On The Dirt Road All My Life
I love Dan Snaith's vocals... I guess I can see why I'd like Jesu's stuff too57. Do you sing in the shower?

Rather be once I guess60. How important is your partner's/friend's taste in music to you?
A few common liked-artists is good enough for me! At the end of the day, friendship > music (+1 cheese pt)61. Hanson moves in next door to you, do you go introduce yourself, or do you arrange to beat them up?
Neither. I'm insular like that. Nah... I'd introduce myself but wouldn't lend them anything ^__^62. Sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll, you dig?
Would that require being loud, rude and scary? If so, count me out63. Do you cook to music?
Yeah, just something instrumental like Explosions in the Sky
to help past the time. Same goes for when I wash up the dishes
