Do you know what is funny? When I hear or read the word Faun outside of this tread I am back to the time I was at naval airwing firefighters.

We had a great mechanic (now at a racing team) who pushed our beast to 120km/h and reaching 100km/h in 75seconds. The Faun 8x8 had 1000 horsepower to accelarate as quickly as possible. We had 3 minutes to reach every poistion on the airfield, be it road or not. So it was all wheel driven, low centre of gravity and lot of water or powder inside. 3 people and remote controlled water guns. Had the driving license for it but after half a year I climbed in rang to a desk job. But every 4th weekend when it was my tour to be in the weekend readiness I could drive it a bit for training.

Taste freeze; I am so totally happy to be taste frozen! I was talking with one of my old friends about being a teen of the 90s, and Benchwarmers was brought up. Benchwarmers were like baseball cards, but had supermodels on them. I brought up my favorite, Billie Inglish, whom he said he was unfamiliar with. I know her card numbers were 52 and 58, but there's a third one that I never got, so I went to look it up. On a side note, don't tell my wife, lol, stuff would hit the fan; "you mean to tell me that you can't remember where you put the remote for the Firestick, but you can the remember the card number of some chick from the 90s?" Yup!

 

Anyway, I went to look it up, and this other name kept popping up, Billie..... Eilish or Eirish or Eyelid or something like that. It was this girl, like 17 or 18 or something like that, dressed like an alternative goth of the 90s. So, I'm thinking "this might be fun, she looks like she could be the daughter of like Dez Fafara or something". Granted, I wasn't expecting like a nu metal or post-grunge, but I was thinking like maybe a new type of ska or something? I mean, come on, you don't dress like the picture I saw and then sing "Over the Rainbow". Right? Bonk, not in this case; what I heard sucked. It was pop, but not like in a Samantha Fox type of way, more like nervous little girl singing on Mickey Mouse Club. Good God, man. I thought that when you get old, music is supposed to sound louder and freaky and confusing. I used to have a sticker on my guitar case that said "if it's too freaking loud, if it's too freaking heavy, you're too freaking old!" Music's not supposed to sound lamer and cheesier. Granted, I have a whopping zero music videos on whatever constitutes for MTV these days, but good god, man, I'm happy to have my musical taste frozen in the late 90s; kids today don't seem to know how to rock.

I am currently listening to Binaural beats from YouTube to help with my Tinnitus. If I did not have that I might be listening to something else, but I like most of all to compose my own music. I have a few music videos now on my YouTube channel if anyone is interested? Just let me know and I will give you a link to my YouTube Channel. I have mostly an eclective taste in music, other than punk, rap, country and western. My own music style is hard to explain what type of genre, it falls into. Personally I do not have one, as I do not think or feel it fits anywhere really, as odd as that maybe.

PS. Dispite having Tinnitus, I was able to compose all of the music that I have done, for my music videos, making music is of a great importance to me and I wasn't going to let something like Tinnitus get in the way of me at least being able to play my keyboards/Synthesizers, but doing that takes every ounce of my concentration.  I love listening to music, I just love being able to play music that just bit more, if you are not a music composer, not to worry, I do not expect you to understand that statement, but there is a real difference between listeing to a piece of music as to creating a music piece of your very own. Trust me when I tell you, that there is an actual dynamic difference.

I so know what you mean. My tase in music is somwhere stuck between the sounds of the 70's right on through to the 90's. Modern day music is definitely not like the tunes of old, which were so, so much better in my personal opinion. I am glad that my music style that I play is not aged in anyway, at least I don't think so, my music is somewhere between Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis, but on the whole I created my own unique type of music that I feel would sound okay even in the future, it's not everyones cup of tea, then again Jean Michel Jarre's music back in the day wasn't everyones cup of tea either and look where he is now.
