I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Supersonic Explosion -- Rock On!
Among all other music genres, rock music is my number one choice. I like it because for some reason, not everyone gets to appreciate rock. It kind of feels good to know that only a few like what you're hooked to. Do you ever get that feeling? Whenever I feel like downloading songs, I always think of prioritizing rock bands in my list. Listening to them makes me feel like I'm not a timid girl or something. It also helps me bring out my anxieties just by singing along with my endeared post-hardcore and heavy metal bands. This kind of music invigorates my soul, so to speak. It may sound too turbulent for some, but for a rockphile like me, rock is music to my ears.
A few months ago, I've posted about how I learned to love rock. In case you still haven't read about it, I'm providing you this link. I also mentioned about NU 107's closing. That was one of the saddest news I've known last year. But just recently, I found out from Francis Brew's Twitter Page that the management actually opened a new rock station by the name of DIG Radio. It's both a good and a bad news. Good news because the home of rock on the radio springs back to life. Bad news because the frequency is not available here in Davao City. But you can also tune in and listen to your favorite DJs online via this site. Good thing!
I have at most 3GB worth of rock music files in my virtual folder. Too bad I lost some of them when we had our PC reformatted just last month. Too bad I wasn't able to back it up. Darn! Now I'm beginning to download all the lost albums again. What a tedious thing to do, but I have to do it because as I said, I love rock. When you love something that bad, you have to do everything when you know you can still get it back. LOL! I really intended to sound that cheesy. My apologies. Can't help but laugh at my own bloody hell sentiments. Anyway, because I'm feeling like a rock star at this very late hour, I'm going to give you this list of rock songs that I've been binging aurally these days. Girly meets rocker. Enjoy!

Before I bid you good night, let me leave you with this song from the list that I shared. I totally love this hard rockin' party cover song from We Came as Romans. This version of the pop song, My Love is, shall I say, better than the original. Listen to this and be a party animal rocker. Bye for now, have fun contemplating on the song! :-D
