Hello and welcome to the last Musical Moondays for a good while, while I take a break. I have enjoyed writing this series, and on Mondays I am always a little down. Perhaps I feel I am wired that way from reading Garfield comics for so long, but it is the way it is.

I'm running out of topics I want to cover, and I have pretty much shared with all of you my particular music tastes. They happen to be niche and not always easy to relate to which is why I have also tried to provide background info on the differences and how they relate to the music of old and today. I've found out that many shared a similar transition from the grunge period in the nineties thus fueling a lot of kids like myself to rediscover what influenced it like punk rock, among other things.

Lots of memories fade in while writing this series and listening to this music again. Sound and smell are the two closest senses tied to memory. And so now let's begin the last Musical Moondays for awhile.

4. Pixies, Grunge, Hip Hop, Anime, DFH Music, Post Punk, and All That

And so here begins a sort of TTFN for this series. It doesn't have to be that way though. I welcome anyone who wants to join this group to contact me and I will add you. If you have a certain musical genre or niche you want to explore or multiple ones like I have done, even some of the same ones I did, I encourage anyone who wants to write and contribute to this series in my absence to do so.

That is what makes this group different. What I have tried to do differently is go a different route as far as the subject matter even though all of these are open threads and anyone can post whatever they want. What makes this series different is that it focuses on certain genres while providing a bit of research into them so others can appreciate them. Maybe afterwards they realize they like a certain type of music they only thought was for certain types of people in different generations. I find that most music spans generations and is timeless.

It doesn't mean I will like all of it, but it always helps to expand one's horizons just to make sure one is not missing out on anything. If this series has achieved the goal of expanding some kossack's musical horizons then I feel this series has been a good thing and well worth writing. I know I have learned about different bands I didn't know about in many of these diaries I have written by poster's suggestions and posts in the comments. That has been great.

And so I take my leave for awhile. Thank you everyone who contributed, read, or listened to this series.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
