eeeeww sorry that may be cool for you but i have a deep fear of cicada’s (not even bugs just cicadas)
You don’t like cicada? They’re harmless!
I guess you wouldn’t like summer in Japan then!
its not a rational fear like a fear of vipers its just when i was young a (leaving out the expletive) huge one jumped at me and i was scared half to death.
its like a fear of the dark its not that the dark is gonna swallow you or anything its just forboding
Cicada aren’t seen often in America, are they? But every summer in Japan … their chirping is a sound of summer in Japan.
we do have the 17 year cicada that are the big mofo’s but we have smaller ones that do the grindy chirpy noise. its actually a very relaxing noise until it sounds like its coming from a bit too close
my cousin once threw one of their shells down my shirt. my parent thought i was having a seizure but i was just freaking out…
i dont know maybe it is like the dark but like most bugs im comfortable until they get too close
What part of America do you live in?
Eldridge Iowa. its just next to davenport if you know where that is (i figured its a more popular city)
No sorry … the only thing I know at Iowa is that the band Slipknot are from there.
well its on the south eastern tip of iowa by the mississippi
and yes we do have more famous bands than you would think in the land of corn; slipknot three days grace among a few
>three days grace
I don’t know that band.
i dont know you might like them theyre not metal per say but they are alt rock and have some heavy songs look at their songs like animal ive become or i hate everything about you
I just checked out those songs you recommended and a couple of others by them. They’re pretty good.
glad to see you like them 😄 they were my gateway to heavier music
What artists are your favorites?
i sort of moved into punk but my favorite artists have to be rise against, bad religion, and system of a down/serj tanken
I have one “System Of A Down” CD … but I don’t know the music of any of those bands well.
And I don’t like punk rock much.
ah well to each his own
Wow! That’s great! I still remember when the 17 year cicada erupted from the ground in Illinois. The sound was deafening!
Yeah, I’ve heard that the cicada in America only emerge from the ground every seventeen years!
The TV news here said that this year (2013) is one such year…
That’s funny. So infrequently! I don’t recall every seeing (or hearing) cicada in America.
The cicada emerge every summer in Japan. Having lived here so long now…I can’t imagine summer without the cicada’s cry!
