apparently i freaked out a friend when i bought him a gift song on iTunes (he was expecting RATM but it was M.Ward, who feels like a civil-war remnant crossed with t-bone burnett). he was nervous because i had previously admitted that when i'm at work i listen to much harsher music than most people would assume i rock to...

today's thumpy playlist has modest mouse, rage against the machine, beastie boys, prodigy, the occasional vintage silverchair (haven't heard anything new from them since the days of frogstomp). also muse, danny and the ketchups, NIN, outkast, even went with some lady sovereign for the first time.

anyone else have a split personality with their music?
