After a month or so after my post here, my mom just calls my music "weird". Nothing else. But that's probably due to her seeing some band names. :/
My classmates at school seem to be ignorant as well. My algebra class was dead silent excluding the usual talking. Cue me playing some Mars Volta (and at a pretty loud volume as well to drown out their talking. Not too loud, but it should still be audible). Not a single comment.
