I haven't performed a comprehensive survey of my entire collection, but if I had to guess, I would say that in 1993-6, I really liked bands. Gasp, that correlates with time served in high school! Sadly, I am now of the age (as predicted by Joe) where new music is all crap. I live for discovering and rediscovering old music (and yes, I've started getting into classical). I try to refrain from decrying current music as derivative pap, because I am so totally Through Being Cool.
I saw A Scanner Darkly and enjoyed it. Yay, bargain matinees at local indie theaters.
