Does anyone else hate interviews?
 
Back again with yet some more annoying, stupid questions you guys can give me **** over.

Just thinking of how I hate interviews. Maybe they were ok 30+ years ago when all the lines hadn't been taken. But to do interviews nowadays is pointless. We've heard it all before. Just some artist sitting there like "Look at me and how intelligent and interesting I am, and how many cunning things I can say". They're just doing/saying the same crap that has been said for decades.

Who else gets what I'm saying?

Nobody will ever say anything intelligent again. It's a cruel world of has been dones that we live in for sure.

Exactly. But honestly I care nothing about whether a musician is innovative anymore. If it sounds good, it's worth listening to IMO. Interviews are just so annoying to me though. All artists want to sound exactly like the people who came before them. Like they want to sound special or something.

What did you do on your hiatus?
How often do you think you will visit MusicBanter in the future?

When did you discover you didn't like interviews?

What do you think that happen in 1984/1985 that changed interviews?

So are you in essence saying: "There is nothing new under the sun?"

Sounds like you are interviewing us, lol. No, but seriously that's an interesting question though I don't know maybe someone in our MusicBanter audience can answer that question. Who else gets what Pursuingchange is saying?

Gold, my neapy (you love it).

You need to replace the battery on your sarcasm detector.

Pursuingchange 12-25-2014 11:50 PM

No, I think your battery needs changed. Me saying exactly was sarcasm for ignoring your sarcasm.

I said 30+ years. Not exactly 30 years ago.

Oh, so you were being ironic when you were contradicting yourself, then?

Pursuingchange 12-25-2014 11:55 PM

Maybe it's not the interviews I hate so much as the artists who think they sound so intelligent and original when they speak, but are just speaking/behaving the same way every other damn artist did a googleplex times before they did. Idk, it just gets on my nerves.


My disclaimer in my OP was made to remind the community that I am in fact dumb, and most of the things I say will not make sense. I just get a kick out of being made fun of on forums. However, this thread is not meant as a troll. I genuinely hate interviews/interviewees!

"Ironic", "contradicting"? Those words are too big for me. I don't understand.

that makes it a little easier to bullshit your way into someone's line of approval.

....though about 90% of the time you're talking to someone who's a complete fucking idiot and it's a miracle they ever became a store manager.
