inspiration

Well.. you found it.. the "links" page of every personal website ever created. these are sites and artists that inspire me to do what ever i do. I realize there are tons of awesome artists out there, but these are the one's i listen to most and also the ones who have their own web sites.

Woah.. i actually added some new artists that i've been into recently... and I haphazardly tried to classify them although many of them shift styles from different albums and tracks.. but i did my best...

I'm always looking for sites to add here.. so email me is you know of any.
