Whilst I am eternally grateful for getting a job, my 32 Y.O boss has stated that my music is: awful, out dated, and nerdy. His fave music is top 40 junk and I played him this today:



At first he asked if it was Jimi Hendrix.... and then he said that it did nothing for him whatsoever and I was like what? it may not be your thing but surely you must like the groove at least. All i got was that I am living in the past so I then put on a Drum N Bass mix from this year and still no joy.

Narrow minded people really piss me off.

I am completely allergic to narrow minded people .

I must say this is not my kind of thing (I don't like the 'soul' feel to it), but it's like you say: You must AT LEAST like the groove. The groove is brilliant. And then the singing starts.
Back to Kenny Dorham .
Thanks for the share, nevertheless!

And outdated: How can something good be outdated?
That's like saying: "Your Stradivarius is 350 years old, you should get one of those new electric Violins". Good stuff never goes old.

Have you noticed that bad music is called 'old' after like... five years?

Am I missing something? Since when did this become "old" music that makes people seem like they're living in the past?

And Jimi Hendrix? For reals???????

everything by taylor swift sounds the same to me.

i actually like the instrumental but i hate her voice and lyrics.

music that people forced unto me that i'm starting to like:

(william fitzsimmons and justin vernon forced this on me)

(this video is really stupid though)

My roommates are girls who are both in choir groups for church. They listen to a lot of T-Swift, Michael Buble, Carrie Underwood, Copeland, Matt Costa, etc. To be honest, I don't mind most of it, certainly not as bad as the other stuff in this thread.

Oh, and one doesn't like the Beatles and thinks they're overrated, even though I've caught her singing their music on several occasions.

One of my friends used to be really into Passion Pit. Not really a horrible band or anything, but if he plays Sleepyhead everytime you hang out with him it starts to get real old...real fast!

Ah yes. I really liked this song the first time i heard it. But now it hurts my brain. I still really like the video though.

Thank god all my friends like the same kind of music than I do so I don't have to listen to **** like Blood on the Dance Floor or anything. When we hang out we listen to GY!BE, Ef or some other good stuff.
But I know people who are really into metal and think the bands I listen to are "mainstream" and whimpy since I listen to post-rock and it has melodies and everyone knows melodies are only used in pop music. Makes me kinda laugh since the bands they listen to are some of the most generic, mainstream crap metal out there.

There's this one chick I know, whose always asking me for recommendations. Well, Here's a paraphrased commentary she gave of some of my favourite songs:


"What the **** is that? it's just a bunch of washing machine noise! I DON'T EVEN LIKE ROCK MUSIC IT'S ****!"


"Who the **** listens to music without words? what's the point? it's ****ty."


"This is terrible! Who would even want to listen to this? Where is the music?"


"How old am I? 60? I don't like music from the seventies! that dude has an ugly voice! Zoe, you have a terrible taste in music."

The most narrow-minded person in the world. The best part is, she's always coming back and asking me for "edgy" music.
