I had a conversation with some friends last night about the music scene in Seattle. Since you know I'm always striving to stay current with the hep tunes (the '90s Comcast channel counts as "hep," right?), I wanted to know what I need to start adding to my iTunes. Turns out, one of the biggest things in Seattle right now is death metal.
Is it sincere? Is it an ironic throwback to the late '80s and early '90s? Who knows. Who cares. Death metal is here to stay, bitches. Catch the fever.
But here's the problem? When is the right time to listen to death metal? You can't really listen to it before bedtime or during afternoon tea. So when can you listen to death metal?
Here are some ways I can see incorporating death metal into my life:
- Driving home from the grocery store. Nothing makes me feel more pumped up than a good old-fashioned mango sale.
- Folding laundry. Rolling socks just seems to lend itself to head banging.
- Cooking dinner. Knives and fire. I mean, it's a no-brainer.
- Walking the dog. Especially if you own a tiny poodle or shitzu. Nothing's more rebellious or badass than irony.
What time is your favorite time to listen to death metal?
