*laughs* It is refreshing to hear someone kick ideas around without a forceful nature!!! Also, to not get upset by my opinion is a strong indication that you deal with controversy rather well - good deal!
Music... well I really like alternative music... Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, Tori Amos. I also really enjoy classical music, Mozart, Debussy, Beethoven... but my favorite is Tchichovsky. (I know I butchered all those names but I'm too lazy to go out into the living room and look at my CDs to get an acurate spelling...it's been 100 degrees or so every day for the last week.)
I like blue grass, some techno, and some new wave.
I bounced around in the art field for a bit, tried to get a comic book off the ground a few years ago, before all the good films Marvel has released were mainstream, but the industry was in a glut. Now I write for a smaller publishing company. I'm in the middle of a fantasy adventure trilogy, the first has been published and I've been contracted for the next two... with more books in the works shortly thereafter.
Don't take my rantings too close to heart, I'm biased on the art scene. I realize the need for art and its expressive nature and that there are valid points to your comments about what artists are expressing in their work.
If you're interested, check out Amazon.com and type in Matthew G McMillan under the 'books' section. There are a couple of web sites dedicated to the "Ghosts of Littletown" books if you do a search on your search engine, including a message board site.
