    Nice song collection. I see that you’re also a fan of Linkin Park ;)

  2. Cat says:

    Oh yes, definitely! They’re brilliant and I’m really looking forward to their new album, even though I didn’t like ‘Minutes to Midnight’ all that much.

  3. ellaella says:

    I love stats and music too, so I especially enjoyed this post. I think a post about changing listening habits would be very interesting. Have your tastes changed at all too?

    Good stuff, Cat!

  4. Cat says:

    They have and I am writing up a post on that meaning it’ll be posted whenever! ;)

    But it should be sooner rather than later as I am curious myself and I’ll be digging through old diaries and the like.

  11. Hi! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I really enjoy reading through your posts.

    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go
    over the same topics? Appreciate it!

  12. Free beats on the Internet are only good for so many things.
    Look though, I’m not trying to mislead you into thinking that if you build a
    site and learn internet marketing you will make six figures right off the bat.
    Make sure to give a good variety of songs to capture the ears of your listeners.

    There is nothing wrong with buying rap beats already prepared by someone else.

  13. I always spent my half an hour to read this blog’s articles or reviews every day along with
    a cup of coffee.

  14. Magnificent beat ! I would like to apprentice even
    as you amend your web site, how can i subscribe for a weblog
    web site? The account aided me a applicable deal. I were a little bit familiar
    of this your broadcast offered brilliant clear idea
