Hello fellow ifyoulikeblankers-

We're trying out some new post flairs in an effort to weed out some of the more obvious suggestions. If you're looking for or making suggestions in a genre that you're already deep into, then try our new "Advanced" flairs. They should appear just below the standard flairs when creating your post.

Thanks to /u/LordApocalyptica for the idea.

Happy hunting!

Edit: Thank you for your diligence, but I think I'll leave this post up!

Already watched Tudors. I would love a character who is as manipulative and also not completely evil. Also maybe women who are strong characters without being "mary sue" and "physically strong"? Movies and books are also fine.

My kids (9,8,5) and I have been going through the age appropriate Ghibli movies and so far they love: My Neighbor Totoro, Howls Moving Castle, Kiki's delivery service, ponyo, the cat came back and a couple others. What other similar movies will we like? Preferably something with English audio since I think they are too young to handle subs, etc.

Looking for movies with interesting characters, and interesting interactions between them.

Some movies I have in mind are:

  • Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight
  • Clerks
  • Cube
  • 12 Angry Men
  • Night of the Living Dead, Day of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead
  • Mindhunter (Netflix series)
  • Dr Strangelove
  • Tommy Boy
  • Birdman
  • Frank

This is kind of vague. I'm looking for almost like character studies, but studies of interactions between multiple characters in situations together. Maybe that's the definition of a movie...

Mainly Looking for more 50’s-70’s films although I’ll gladly take some screwball comedies from the 30’s and 40’s!

As far as metal goes: Pantera, Black Label Society, Lamb Of God, Assjack, Texas Hippie Coalition, Slayer, Transylvania Hellhounds, Clutch, Testament, Hatebreed, Burn the Priest, Butcher Babies,

Country and Bluegrass favorites include: Cody Jinks, Ward Davis, Whitey Morgan, Flatt and Scruggs, Steel Woods, Charlie Daniels, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams (all 3 of them), Hellbound Glory, Ralph Stanley

Im in need of some new stuff to listen to so any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Hello,

So recently I listened some rock song that I personnaly qualify of « hippie » rock style, I dont know if you agree with this but anyway I really love the style of these songs and I wonder If you know more of music in this style :

  • Tom Petty & the heartbreakers : Breakdown
  • The mamas & papas : California Dreamin
  • Tom Petty : last dance of mary jane
  • Dusty Springfield : Son of a preacher man
  • Men at Work : Down Under
  • Tom Scott and the california dreamers : Today

I kind of like the « road driving » feeling of these song.

If you know more Music in this Spirit please share it with me 😊

When I want to just close my eyes, listen to music, and relax like the Dude my go-to’s (is that how you write that?) are Hotel California, Stairway to Heaven, and now Just Dropped In by Kenny Rogers. Can you guys recommend some more songs to expand that list?

I'm an MGK fan, though I haven't heard a lot of his songs. But from what I've heard, this song doesn't seem to be his usual kind of music. Recently found this one and was wondering if anyone knows anything similar, doesn't have to be MGK himself. I really like this one

I'm trying to find dance music but with a lean toward rock/punk. I've listened to a lot of post-punk greats, such as the Cure, Siouxie, Bauhaus, and 70s and 80s new wave. I also know a good bit of industrial, with some favorites being Cabaret Voltaire, Nitzer Ebb, and early Ministry. As far as newer acts, LCD Soundsystem is my favorite of the dance/rock combination. I also love Daft Punk and French House, with some dabbling done in Chicago House like Frankie Knuckles. I'd like any recommendations you have, new or old, but would prefer some lesser known bands in any of the styles above. Thank you grateful dancing fans!

I like to listen to really weird music just to see what’s out there and I feel like I’m becoming desensitized. I need the weirdest you’ve got. Some examples:

Weird: • Starsailor - Tim Buckley •Bish Bosch - Scott Walker •The Litanies Of Satan - Diamanda Galas •Greatest Hits - Wesley Willis •Ascension - John Coltrane •Faust - Faust •Divine Music From a Jail - Oiduppa Vladimir Oiun (not necessarily weird, but folk music styles like throat singing that are very different from much of modern music is fair for recommendations) •Trout Mask Replica - Captain Beefheart •Lumpy Gravy - Frank Zappa •Tom Waits - Swordfishtrombones

Not weird: • The Velvet Underground and Nico - The Velvet Underground and Nico •White Album - The Beatles •The Money Store - Death Grips •The Mollusk - Ween •Apostrophe (‘) - Frank Zappa

I’m going to bed after I post this, but if this post gets more traction than an average post on this sub, I’ll add recommendations I’ve heard to the weird/not weird lists. The albums that I say aren’t weird are all great albums and each one would have been what I’d call my favorite album at a point, they just never caught me off guard with the weirdness when I first listened to it.

I need some gritty proto-punk/acid rock bands. I'm looking more for obscure bands but if you can recommend me some popular bands that I might have missed that would be cool as well.

I'm going through a rough time, starting meds for depression on Monday as soon as I get a prescription. Just want something to help my brain go through the weekend.

I don't want something to cheer me up and tell me how beautiful life is (little miss sunshine as an example), nor a comedy to distract me.

I want something that keeps my brain going, with some really well developed feelings and characters. I want to focus on someone else pain and struggle because I care more about others.

Examples of what I like: Neon Genesis Evangelion (for the human feelings and internal conflicts of characters)

Nicolas winding Refn (his aesthetics)

Park Chan Wook (his technical mastery)

Bonus: For those who have watched it, it's a couple of days that I'm thinking about Enter the void by Gaspar Noe, you know, that kind of mood.

Last movie I watched: The killing of a sacred deer. Cool but those cold emotions killed me inside.

Thanks in advance and have a good day.

Drum instrumentals that give off a "city streets" vibe. Any suggestions?

Looking for tracks like like this Club Kuru track, or anything slow by Connor Moccasin, but without the vocals. Very slow tempo, dreamy, time goes in slow motion. Thank you in advance!

My favorite genre is rock but I'm loving electro swing as something new and refreshing. I love how you can move your body to the Rythm and how chill it is to listen while doing stuff on background. Any other similar genre I could like to add to my Playlist? After a while it gets kinda repetitive

Thanks!
