It’s true, I am a traitor to the OSR.
And it’s not just because I love Vampire: the Requiem, Pathfinder, Wraith: the Oblivion, Lacuna Part 1, and a million other new school games (holy fuck I still adore the D&D Gamma World!)… It is because I just can’t listen to Rock and Roll, Metal, or anything really in those genres. I never liked Maiden or Priest, never rocked out to Zeppelin or grooved to Floyd. AC/DC turns my crank about as much as being forced to watch CBT porn, and the only Motley Crue I enjoy is my gaming group.
It’s true. Hell, I can’t even associate with the edges of the scene who enjoy their nu metal or their Phish and Jethro Tull. Worse than that, I don’t like the soundtracks that constantly get hyped as being awesome gaming music. Blurgh.
I listen to a lot of Dubstep and Electronic Industrial, and a fair share of popular dance music. Hell, I fucking LOVE Madonna. I’m actually listening to a mix of Madonna and Dubstep tracks right now as I write this. I’ll be chucking dice to Lady GaGa and drawing maps to the soothing sounds of Noisuf-X.
Enough ranting, time to scan another few maps…
