Me and my BFF made up a long story ages ago about money genetics. It was basically that coins dropped on the sideways would grow up to become ATM machines, and dropped bills would grow up to be credit cards. The mating process is obvious. I don't remember if we figured out why all the offspring are ...

There's all kinds of weird with TCM, some aspects not strictly part of TCM, but rather cultural, however in practice they are very much a part of it. For example Eating animals close to extinction is good for your health. Drinking alcohol with snakes in it is good for your sexual abilities. Eating p...

I've never had problems looking into peoples eyes. But I've realized that I tend to look too much, too intensly. Some get the impression that I'm staring at them.

I'd never heard Totalt Jävla Mörker before but they were definitely worth giving a listen to. Happy to oblige, for early Teddybears Sthlm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCulxuPirfc&list=OLAK5uy_kmAyYuSO2I-hUsVdj8BC2ifFpQk2zbOnc&index=4 (forget about the newer stuff!) and for Abhinanda http...

Indeed.
I do like Discharged, Totalt Jävla Mörker, early Teddybears Sthlm, Abhinanda and so on.
But I also like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbMk8Fd ... FpQk2zbOnc

I get you, melodic metal and pop punk are concidered more melodic than death metal and hard core.
Just saying that it gets complicated when you really analyze it.

Maybe mainstream isn't the right word - I just meant music that plays on popular radio stations what most people are into. A lot of music Aspies post here are what I've never heard of before. I'm not so hungry for new music anymore, but when I was I always apreciated when I got introduced to music ...

interesting! I have to say that certain music with lots "agression" makes things worse for me. When I hear such music I tell myself: "I wish they could deal with their anger in a nicer way than playing this disturbing music!". Does "agressive" music make any of you les...

I'd say the melody is there, it's just not in your face. Kind of like Hip Hop can be sometimes, and like Techno can seem to lack rythm. As a comparison, I can tell you that I had a conversation with an uncle some 20 years ago, and he didn't understand how people could like The Beatles, it was all no...

I never wanted to just play around.
If I went into the water I wanted to swim, I learned to swim when I was 6 and I managed to swim 200 meters that year. Unfortunately the next year I had forgotten how to swim so I had to go through swimming school again.

I wouldn't call Amy Winehouse mainstream. Heck, I'd say The Clash is more mainstream, or at least on the same level.
But it gets complicated fast when discussing terms such as "mainstream" and genres such as "grindcore" or "metal", even what's melodic.

Hard core punk, skate punk, street punk etc is quite calming for me, as is traditional folk tunes.

I love the aesthetics of those kinds of drawings!

I remember details in a similar way as you. I used to get really surprised when others didn't remember eg what was said during a meeting 6 months earlier. I also pick up on many visual details and remember them. Like if I run through a museum and others spend hours in there walking back and forth, I...

I built things, from bows and arrows and crossbows to a functional mini rope walk in lego. I also made Stockholm tar to impregnate the tiny ropes I made. I built many miniature boats and ships that could actually sail. I was much into model construction and tin soldiers. I didn't as far as I remembe...
