I’ll be honest. I have never really associated with one type of music over another. I’ve bought who knows how many CDs and tracks, but I don’t think I’ve ever bought a band t-shirt. And a few years in the theatre industry meant that I’ve probably been to more concerts of a diverse nature than most other people.
But then… dubstep.
Don’t get me wrong; I don’t hate it. There are some tracks that make me go “huh, interesting.” But I’ve not yet been inspired to spend money on it.
Now, I’m sure that I’m bound to invoke the ire of many by saying this, but I do like this track:
That’s Chronicles of a Fallen Love by the Bloody Beetroots.
I’m not sure why, but I would really like it to be the ending theme to something that I’ve written. Obviously, this isn’t really your standard high school romance type of track. However, every time I hear it on the radio I just wish that something like this was written for something that I had written.
So anyway, track like this inspire me. When I was writing KS I was constantly listening to music (embarrassingly, it was mostly anime songs that I could barely understand at the time).
The emergence of dubstep as a popular form of music seems to have inspired me to re-visit the violence-fuelled writings of my past.
Whilst I haven’t really “taken the axe” to Arctic Gale in the sense that Suriko and SilentCook took the axe to the Hanako Path, I feel that I’ve started to edit AG with more vigour.
So please, let me know if it is working. If that is the case then I’ll go and buy the Bloody Beetroot’s CD and listen to it on repeat on my impending flight to Germany
