I've always thought that those who put them selves out there are the most successful, and I'm pretty "out there". I come from a very small town on the Illinois/Wisconsin border known as Antioch (but that's quite irrelevant; if you know where that is, chances are you're from there). If I were to give you a word that describes me, i'm pretty sure it's "interesting"; I go where most don't even think about going, and I'm ready for whatever hits me on the way there. So, when it came to deciding my major, I had two options: Music, or Psychology.Both are things I hold incredibly close to me. I decided Psychology because I feel I would benefit a bit more financially from it. SO, that being said, I started my show Tune Talk last fall, and I'd have to say it went pretty well. So well, I added a Co-Host and was offered to do more shows. And here I am, waiting, for what ever obstacle that tries to stop me. And to show it that I can do whatever it takes to get where I need to go. I AM /u/DatAmygdala
I'm heavily influenced by some serious public figures, mostly ones that aren't afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Once again, I've always gone where most don't. I would say I owe my sanity to Lady Gaga, but she was really the musician that told me it was okay to be myself, and let my freak flag fly. I watch a lot of popular culture tv shows, and was a RELIGIOUS follower of The Fashion Police; Joan Rivers was hilarious. Harry Potter is my rock. It has truly taught me more then you could understand.
I don't know what to put here; I have a very eclectic taste in music, so I'm just going to list them off. Sam Smith, Beyonce, Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Foster the People, Ed Sheeran, Alligatoah (German artist. Look him up), Lady Gaga, The Ready Set, Tame Impala, The Black Keys, BEYONCÉ, Janis Joplin, Josh Groban, Skrillex, Marvin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Did I say BEYONCÉ?, Sublime, Green Day, Kendrick Lamar. The list doesn't end. However, I can't stand country.
