This is TYOMA of TYOMA.COOL, reporting in!

Anyone who knows me knows that music runs through my veins, so I figured it'd be fun to setup a site just for me to share my love for sounds and noises.

While I try to keep my main site for complete, fully thought-out stuff, this is gonna just be like a music notebook. For the most part I intend to just share playlists and my listening habits, but who knows, I might add more stuff (like guitar/bass tabs) as it strikes my fancy.

  • My personal music collection is stored on a home media server running Plex.
  • Desktop/PC: I listen to my music through MusicBee and bulk edit metadata using MusicBrainz Picard.
  • Android: I used to use Poweramp, but ended up switching to Symfonium because it has streaming server support.
  • I also have a huge CD collection, which I'm slowly expanding to include cassettes and vinyls.
  • My preferred headphone is the Sennheiser HD 599, but I like the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT2 for its portability as well.
  • I've got a FiiO BTR3K... somewhere. Ashamed to admit I lost it, but I loved that thing. Also have a FiiO M9, which I want to get rid of.

Some of my favorite genres include grunge, jazz rap, doom metal, psychedelic rock/metal, stoner rock/metal, trip hop, drone doom, 70s R&B, new wave, boom bap, and progressive soul. I also like electronic music, but I'm familiar with genres outside of UK garage and 90s jungle. I listen to other stuff too.

The only genres I actively dislike are hyperpop, black metal, trap, and country pop. You will not convince me to like or even listen to them.

Everyone lists their favorite artists but I have too many, so here's a list of my favorite albums instead:

  • Earth 2: Special Low Frequency Edition by Earth
  • Jar of Flies by Alice in Chains
  • Ritual de lo Habitual by Jane's Addiction
  • Siamese Dream by Smashing Pumpkins
  • Queens of the Stone Age by Queens of the Stone Age
  • Mystery 秘神 by Mong Tong
  • To Pimp A Butterfly by Kendrick Lamar
  • Superunknown by Soundgarden
  • Red Album by Baroness
  • Exmilitary by Death Grips
  • Incesticide by Nirvana
  • Pathologic OST by Andriesh Gandrabur
  • Tiny Music...Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop by Stone Temple Pilots

If you have any suggestions or just want to gush about what you've been listening to, leave a little message in the suggestion box. Also, I'm not always online, but you can find me on Soulseek as "gleepo" ;^)
