What Makes Me Tick

Ever wonder what makes me tick? I’m revealing here, for the first time ever, what makes me happy and what makes me want to scream LOL

I will list what I love first (this doesn’t include family or friends cause it’s a given that I love all of you even though some drive me crazy sometimes):


I am a HUGE Pete Yorn fan, unfortunately his brand new album “PY” didn’t exactly win me over. My favorite CD of his will always be musicforthemorningafter.
I also love:
Pearl Jam (Ten)
Smashing Pumpkins (Adore)
The Beatles (Sgt. Pepper)
Led Zeppelin (Stairway to Heaven)
Fleetwood Mac (Rumours)
Peter Frampton (my teenage idol)
Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon)
Bon Jovi (Slippery When Wet)
Aerosmith (Toys in the Attic)

This list could go on forever, so I will have to say those are my top favorites. I love classic rock the most since that’s what I had the privilege of listening to as a teen.

I don’t like hip hop, country, or opera.
