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.

Honestly I don't think he's much of a recreational music listener, but if he sends me a youtube link, it's ****ing bagpipes

I played João Gilberto for a friend today. She liked it. I also showed another friend some Curtis Mayfield, and he said it made him feel very happy. My other friend asked me if he could get all of the Belle and Sebastian off of my computer onto his iPod, because I showed him a YouTube link to one of their songs and he's been into them ever since. Then again, another girl said that old Disney Film music was better than anything related to 'metal', but you know, that's just the nostalgia talking.

Kind of an anti-climactic set of anecdotes, but frankly I feel as though you can get people into plenty of good music if you don't choose a ridiculous pathway. Getting the pop-obsessed listener into Merzbow is the longest of long shots, so I always try to take something familiar yet angular and then show it to them. Then, everybody's happy.
