Well

I'm concerned over the lack of writing in my journal as of late. I'm trying to convince myself that posting on here is just as good as actual handwriting.

Another two-a-day post. Hmm.

Anyways, so my roommate has this friend. And she's stupid. and I mean ST-U-U-U-UPID.

And today she starts asking me what bands I listen to.

So I tell her, "You know, some hardstyle (technoish) music, some pagan and folk metal, some death metal, some indie bands...really anything."

Then her and my roommie spend about ten minutes reading out names of bands and asking if I've heard them before. Yes, I've heard of Kesha and TI, but no I don't listen to them. And just because I've never heard of someone on the radio doesn't make me ignorant.

You've never heard of Primordial, have you? The Moldy Peaches? They're not exactly super-obscure. But I hardly deign you for your taste in music. I see nothing wrong with the music on the radio, I just prefer my own.

Really, I'm not an elitist, so it annoys me when other people are so aghast that you've never heard of something. Shouldn't I be more aghast that you know nothing about politics?

Whatever. It's not like I'm hung up on it, but this kind of thing is annoying.

  1. We need to find a way to share the more obscure musical gems. Things like Last.fm are a good start.

    No but really, we're all just people thrown into this world, without anything to hold onto, making our way through in the ways best available to us.

    People all like each other in the end

  7. Hehe I can't believe that someone is actually listening to keisha, ti or other shiet like this. Anyway, looks like you have a good taste ;)

  8. I think that it shows a certain laziness when people only listen to music they hear on the radio. They just accept whatever is provided to them, instead of putting in effort to find artists they truly enjoy listening to. But you seem to understand this. So I'll overlook your misuse of the word "deign" and follow your blog.

  10. The radio sucks for the most part and it only seems to play the same 10 songs every. single. day. If they want to limit themselves to that then oh well. Their loss.

  11. Haha, I'm actually a music elitist, but a different sort - the jazz way. Fuck indie, fuck metal (except Meshuggah and other high tech fusion bands) AND ESPECIALLY FUCK PUNK. :D

  14. This happens to me everytime. I'm a maiden fan but I also listen to rap, jazz, classical, pop and whatever else comes my way. I'm not a strict fan on one particular type of music. I'm more of a jack of all trades, master of none :D
