Hey! I never post journals, and I've never really been sure why... until now.
So I had this idea, like 5 minutes ago, to start using my journals to talk about something that's actually important to me: Music. I've always loved art (obviously), and to me that includes music. It's always been a huge influence for me, and I almost never draw anything without music to accompany me.
With that said, what I want to do is take some time every once in a while to post a review of an album or band that I like and open up a discussion for others who love music and want to recommend things to listen to!
I'm very open to different genres and styles of music, and have a very broad palette I would say, so I'd love to hear what everyone else is listening to!

SO! My first topic is going to be my all-time favorite band INCUBUS! More specifically I'll discuss their album, 'Make Yourself' as this album probably is their most recognizable, featuring songs like 'Drive', and 'Pardon Me'. 
If you've never heard of/listened to Incubus before, then I'd guess I'd have to say they're a little bit hard to describe. In the broadest of terms, I say they're in the 'Rock' Genre :D To get more specific, They originally debuted with they're first album, 'Fungus Amongus' as a funk metal band, and as they've progressed they've definitely become more like Alternative hard rock, with some hip hop, funk, and art rock influences. They're definitely unique, to say the least. I especially love a lot of their later stuff as it's really when the writing and lyrical content hits its stride. Brandon Boyd, the lead singer and primary song writer definitely has a way with lyrics that really paints a picture in one's mind, and if that isn't art, then like... I dunno what is, ya know?

'Make Yourself' is really Incubus' first album to deviate from their original sound, which was much heavier, and often included more fast-paced rapped lyrics and funk inspired slap bass among other things. 'Make Yourself' is still very much true to the hard rock genre though, as it incorporates lots of distortion and petal-board effects on the guitar. The album overall has a very smooth flow to it, transitioning from hard-hitting songs like the titular song 'Make yourself' to softer songs like 'Drive'. 

To sum it up, I would definitely recommend this album, and this band to anyone who loves rock, hard rock, may even hip-hop. I think for fans of bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age, and I would even say fans of Jimi Hendrix, as that is one of the influences that the lead-guitarist Mike Einziger has cited, I would totally recommend them!! haha.

So.... Yeah! So what've you been listening to lately? Who's your favorite band? Do you play any instruments? Do you have any bands that you would recommend that I listen to???? :) I REALLY would LOVE to hear what everyone has to say!! I would love to continue doing these! :iconcoolplz:
now I'm worn out... :icontiredplz:

Are you still doing requests? If so, can you please draw my MLP OC flying or something? If you can't draw MLPs, you can turn her into a human. wadr5535.deviantart.com/art/Ne…

Thanks!

haha, well I haven't taken requests in probably a year or two now. I was taking suggestions a while ago, but I suppose I could try to draw you a sketch of your OC as a human, just cuz I think it could be fun, and because I'm nice:) haha!
Do you maybe have anything specific traits in mind that you'd like me to add for human features? 
Sorry to say, I don't know a whole lot about MLP so it'd help if you could maybe give me an idea of what you're looking for:) haha

Oh, thank you! Well, the easiest way to describe her as a human is to look at humanized pictures of Rainbow Dash. Just look them up on Google or something. And I would love it if you could give her wings, but if it's too hard, then you don't have too. It would also be nice if you could incorporate her cutie mark into her clothes or something. Thanks!
