Hey, I know you probably made that music post a while ago, but I just wanted to say; I really like you're music taste and I get real excited whenever you reblog a song. I've discovered some of my favorite groups because of you and I just wanted to say thanks.

this is such a huge compliment and i really, really love music… it’s one of the only things that kept me happy when i was younger so hearing this is just really exciting! i’ll go ahead and give you a quick list of things if you want that -
