Good Evening (Or) Good Morning,
[depending on when you find this]
My name is Patrick, but due to the number of circles I am in that have similarly named sapients, I use "Trick" as a regular handle on my persona to thin the proverbial herd.

Music is one of the human artifacts that I stumbled upon in the early, formative years of my life, but it is easily the most intensely tied to emotion from those days, so it naturally became the foundation to every experience I have encountered in the 30 times I have circled our star.

Apart from the addiction to music that I occasionally refer to as a "hobby", I also enjoy:
- Anything that happens within the tiny bubble that we refer to as "the Cosmos" (as long as it is presented in an entertaining and catchingly creative way)
- listening to the same song, in small sections, thousands of times while I tweek the eq frequency by the db
- putting oil, imbued with varying reflections of light wave lengths, on different materials so as to inflict specific emotions upon the unsuspecting viewers
- Figuring out what a person's viewpoint is, on any subject, then taking the opposing viewpoint in the conversation, so as to: figure out how strongly they feel, discern what "makes them tick" generally, discover how they handle opposition, see if they are a genuine person, or to just screw with them (depending on the situation)
- Over using commas in the body text of everything I type
- Putting on armor and wielding bamboo sticks with the goal of beating another person (with the same goal) with those sticks until strike points accumulate, or stamina quits
- Spending any amount of time with my offspring
- figuring out creative ways to arrange the written version of the vibrations we (humans) can make with the upper 1/5th of our body
- being overly wordy in an attempt to weed out the skimmers so the real message is delivered to the articulate, patient few
- Imbibing alcohol while trying to force my abstract thoughts into text based explanations of my entire life for strangers (soon to be friends) to read
- Brainstorming ways that I can accumulate enough money to afford having a family while actually being able to spend time with them (now that's a concept!)
- Trying to assimilate more instruments into my current one-man-band style music career
- Looking at, and inputting to my memory, the written word of other sapient minds that have come and gone on this mortal coil
- Finding new and exciting things that happen as a direct result of the life on this gravitationally locked rock
- Entering the arena of battle, with friends, using pieces of collectable cardboard, printed with pictures and text
(an arena that I am dominated by my wife in, almost every time)

I think that life is for having fun. I think that intelligence is a happy coincidence. I am convinced that you can learn something unique from everyone (everything). I have found that vitamin "C" is the only miracle on this planet. I act like something worth doing is worth planning and doing right. I believe that life is worthless, random, and finite and that is the exact reason that it is so special and to-be-cherished. I know that (as much as I have social anxiety) I am a member of a social species and it helps my chemistry to interact.

I am looking forward to interacting with everyone here.

I guess the stock answer is "there are too many to choose one" but i really just go through artists like a parasite truthfully. (Musical Artists that is, visual artists are different) Also sometimes I will like an entire album by a single artist, more than any individual song or the artist in general.

but some that I can always fall back on
Led zeppelin
The Bad Plus
Tom Waits
Them Crooked vultures
it heavily depends on my mood
I had a pretty heavy Black Keys phase but I have been going back to Billie Holiday lately

How about you? What musics are you into?

hehe, I can see why you would think that, but truthfully, no. I have near crippling social anxiety which prohibits me from saying much at all in the real world..... But I just found a new outlet

What kinda stuff is good in this community?

I'm getting a whiff of hipster, but that's certainly not a dealbreaker on this scarf-infested site (if Exo can gain love and acceptance here, then so can anyone). I just need to know whether or not it would be appropriate to hassle you with "look at this ****ing hipster" memes.

I love Tom Waits. I'm not familiar with The Bad Plus, what do they sound like?

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. :/

From what I have know of hipsters, you would be hard pressed to find one that admits it. That being said, I don't think i'm a hipster.
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
