Josh Kortbein on music burnout

Josh says:

As quiet as my room seems to be lately, you’d think that my stereo was broken. But I just haven’t been happy listening to anything for a long period of time. I’ll throw on a CD for one or two plays at most, then get sick of music and decide to just play nothing. I’m still listening to a lot of music, but there’s a quite noticeable drop.

This sounds very familiar to me - since Thanksgiving break started a couple weeks ago I haven’t been listening to much music at all, compared to before. I’ll sit and stare at my collection for five minutes trying to find something I think I’d be able to get into at that given moment, and I won’t find anything. Last night I tried a random disc, ended up with A Piedi Nudi’s Creazione, and sat there with the music going in one ear and out the other. I’ve been having a bit more success with those gybe! bootleg MP3s, and now even more success with A Silver Mt. Zion’s album. About damn time - I don’t like not being able to get into my music.
