In 2011 I embarked on a social media challenge that was not for the faint of heart. 30 Days of musical opinions... the 30 Day Musical Challenge. While, yes, silly, this popped up on my Timehop a while ago as a "look what you did, here" and it was sort of funny to me how some of my tastes have changed in just a few years... I elected to answer these questions again, and just put all of the answers here instead of spamming up everyone's facebook newsfeeds with musical pictures... all though if we are being honest, that might be better than 90% of the things currently on there.
