Well, the only thing I can count on being real is my ability to think, and if anything is to come after I loose that ability, surely the only thing we could take across with us is our knowledge. Therefore I feel like there is no such thing as thinking too much. (i may be thinking wrongly though eh? that'd be totally counter productive, rendering your statement true)
Also, I wish that my mind would master "me" already, cause usually the wrong one is steering us about. =D

I look forward to discussing things with you around here.

As far as what I like goes, like you I go through artists like crazy. I tend to go through cycles of listening to certain styles incessantly for a while then jumping to something else. Right now I've been listening to a lot of fast and crazy electronic music in the gabber/breakcore vein. Some recent phases for me before that were yass (a Polish hybrid of jazz, postpunk, electronica and experimentalism), South African hip hop/electronica, musicals (never thought I'd go there but it happened), New Orleans bounce, Dixieland jazz, dub music. Styles I tend to go back to a lot are doom metal, grindcore, hardcore punk, bebop, free jazz, post punk, IDM, golden age hip hop, experimental hip hop, exotica, tropicalia, 60s pop, 70s pop, 80s pop, Europop, industrial and afrobeat.

Sorry about the long answer. :/

The Bad Plus are a remnant from my 'non-jarring jazz' phase. Just a simple trio, they do a lot of clever timings in their stuff, the pianist is just brilliant with his hand work. They have some relative complexity but it's not masturbatory. it just always feels like they are having fun more than displaying talent. They have some originals but also a lot of clever covers. They just did a new album with a guest musician that I have been meaning to pickup. it seems promising.

I'm happy to know I'm not the only one who genre hops, I have not really gone into the stuff you say your into right now, would you recommend some bands to start with?

I too had a musicals period, in my mental autobiography I may title that chapter "the happiest tears I cried"
but out of it I have a pretty entertaining stack of musicals records.

What is some of your favourite free-jazz stuff?
also, would recommend some of the experimental hip-hop you like, it touches some of the music I am working on so I like to get new influences.

If that is considered a long answer by the standards of MB, Then I may annoy some people with my textual enamouration.

I usually wear a randomly coloured tee and work type pants, both probably from walmart potentially years ago. I don't shop for new things typically until they are completely unusable, I have kept that "style" of dress since high school.
However, my wife does crochet and knit so I do have a few beanies and scarves that she made me, I mostly just wear them about the house if it gets cold
but in texas we really only get about 2 seasons:
really friggin hot,and
"it's raining a bit and might freeze" - this happens for about one month at nighttime
Occasionally I get dressed up for, like.. a nice dinner out or something.

I don't really interact with people enough to (monetarily) justify various lifestyle choices inspired by my interaction with them.

Probably the most hipster-ish thing I do is collecting vinyl records, but I have honestly been casually doing that for as long as I have known you could purchase music. I don't use my collection as a weapon in conversations. also, I don't have a vendetta against cd's, I have a ton of them too.

but in the end I am only what I am described as, so, call me what you will I guess I just enjoy the conversation

You gon' get memed, son. You won't know when, you won't know how, but you will. Soon...

And any interest in metal? I listen to a fair amount of other stuff, but if we don't have any metal in common then our interactions will likely be limited to The Lounge for the most part.

Everything. Just immerse yourself into the site, and you'll find things that suit your own tastes. I myself tend to hang around the Songwriting section and spend way too much time in the lounge.

I havn't listened to metal, or anything heavier for a bit, but it is the music that raised me basically, when I was a fledgling music lover. I like Meshuggah, Gorjira, Into The Moat, Agoraphobic Nosebleed...
I don't know if Nervous Cop counts but, pretty metal in my opinion
