I totally agree, and thats why I havnt gotten rid of my digital music collection. But there is something so satisfying about taking a record out of its sleeve and popping it in hoping theres no scratches during your favorite part. I feel like if all I did was use records I would listen much more closely to all my music.

I blame downloading free music for not making the switch. Damn you free stuff.

:O
I hope he/she knows what a dookie is. Granted, they've grown up a little since then but that's not saying much.

You should have told him you were a groupie for Blackjack


I've got a funny one involving my old Iraqi flatmate who isn't really into music and only listens to a bit of pop/club music. He was chatting with some random girl at a party and sadly I wasn't there to witness it, but I'm told it went like this:

Girl: What music are you into?
Flatmate: Ah, you know, pop and hip-hop and so on.
Girl: Cool! Are you into underground?
Flatmate: Nah, who are they?

Eh, I could see that being an honest misunderstanding. Just saying "underground" instead of like "underground music" lends itself to be confused.

I was talking to a girl once who was trying to convince me that John Mayer is a better lyricist than Bob Dylan. After the ensuing conversation I have to actively avoid her.

Oh man that's bad.

I've always been concerned that one day I'll meet a girl who's perfect for me in every way but she's a musical idiot.

Why should that matter?

My GF wasn't really musically interested when we first got together, but since then, I've had quite a bit of influence on her. Now she sings along to much of the embarassing 70s rock I listen to. Her favourite american artist is Frank Zappa. So, instead of it being a bad thing, you could think of it as a clean slate or a blank canvas, ready for your influence to help fill it with interestingness.

Yeah, looking back I actually kind of feel bad about it. It was at a party and I was kind of boozed up and the moment she tried to make her point I just said something along the lines of, "are you a total fucking idiot?" Five minutes earlier I was flirting with her. She must've been really confused.

I would do the same thing.
But then I wouldn't want a girl who has a bad taste of music. Or no interest in music.
It's just that important to me.

My uncle hasn't got a clue who or what queen is. I was flabbergasted.
But then I talked to someone yesterday who had never seen Top Gear. Even more strange, but no music.

That definitely reminds me of my little sister (she's 12) last night.

She's a percussionist in middle school band who also plays marimba with the high school and is extremely musically talented. Her band director plays bass in a local band, and occasionally plays instruments along with them when they're practicing. She and I had this conversation yesterday.

SISTER: Sometimes he'll play marimba with me, or he'll pick up the trumpet. But when he really wants to show off, he'll play the guitar with us while we play.

ME: Guitar? I didn't know he played guitar, too.

SISTER: Yeah! He played it at the band concert.

ME: Wait. That was a bass.

SISTER: No. No, it's a guitar.

ME: How many strings did it have?

SISTER: Four, but I think he broke off the high strings to make it easier to play with us.

ME: Um.

Friend: *sees MP3 Player* Hey, what kind of music do you listen to?
Me: Some electronic, some rock, that's about it.
Friend: What's your favourite electronic band?
Me: a close tie between Aphex Twin and Boards Of Canada, but Autechre is a close second
Friend: HOLY **** THAT SOUNDS COOL! *listens to Autechre*
Friend: ?????????
Me: What's up, dudebro?
Friend: There's no words? WHO THE **** LISTENS TO MUSIC WITHOUT WORDS?

this has happened more than once.
