At some point I started feeling nostalgic for bands and artists.

Meaning: regardless of what I was playing most often at that moment, my favorite memories of music were related more to what the song meant to me at the time of my life I was introduced to it more then how often i listened to the song now.

We all go through phases and trends, history repeats itself inevitability, if for no other reason then just to justify predictability. Eventually the cream rises to each and everyones proverbial top.

Listening to music itself all day long will make you go nuts.
I mean, my ****ing neighbor has been doing that for the past, god only knows how many months and I'm getting tired of it.(although he's kind enough to lend me his stuff )
Anyways, the shuffle option is your best friend here. I realize that i have more good music than i really do whenever i use that.

I always put my music on shuffle and tell myself "I am going to listen to whatever plays," but I always end up skipping songs. :/

*Live recordings* (on both CD and DVD). This usually pulls me out of a rut b/c 1, you can almost pretend you're there, and 2, they're almost always a little different. For example, a guitar solo might be a little longer or the melody is tweaked a but. Sometimes the arrangement of the song is wholly different. The smashing pumpkins were particularly good at that. Also, with live recordings, sometimes they play a cover of song you've never heard before or even gave a sh*t about and then you're like, "Hm, I kinda like that song. Maybe I do like that band."

I get incessantly hooked on an artist when I find that their lyrics imitate my life. But I get out of this rut when I go watch bands perform live. Nothing beats live music!

Especially DVDs. I'm much more likely to give music a chance if I have the visual component.

See...I don't think I could ever be bored with music completely.

There's always something to kind of keep me interested.

Same thing with film.

To me, it's the greatest thing about music, and the reason I don't understand anyone who says "2007 was the worst year for music ever" or whatever.
