I was gonna make a pun with one of M&S's songs but then I realized I couldn't name any of their songs and felt happy.

I remember when I befriended a new neighbor a long time ago when I was going for a walk at night; he was standing outside at his house party and we wound up talking about UFOs and music. He said he'd give me some chili to take home with me in exchange for a mix cd (this was in the olden days) and after I did the next day, he never spoke to me again and avoided eye contact. I actually thought my song choices for the mix cd were pretty tame and agreeable, too. He had asked for something ''chill'' and I suppose the shrill warbling of Meredith Monk and Yma Sumac wasn't exactly relaxing for him.

That's been weighing on me for a while.
Does anyone often experience the reverse of this? Once I was at a small party and I mentioned liking Judy Collins to the older theater nerd I was talking to, and one of the guys lurking nearby (your garden-variety dudebro) immediately said--yelled, practically-- "Oh I love her, she's really cool" as his two friends nodded vigorously in agreement and I thought, hmmm, "cool" is not exactly the right word for Judy Collins, so I played her on my phone for a minute to make sure we were thinking about the right Judy and he was visibly grimacing while still saying "Yeah yeah I really like that song of hers!" I don't really care though; I feel like it's kind of obnoxious to be all "OH SO YOU LIKE SO AND SO, HUH??? Well then what's the bassist's deceased dog's name????" and so on. But it's always funny when, like, a country western dudebro pretends to like neubauten or throbbing gristle or something.

I've had a few people tell me how cool my Wolves in Sheepskin shirt is. I usually do some investigating on where they heard about us from and I usually get pretty stuttery answers.

If we set up a poll for your question, I think there'd be a very clear gender divide tbh.

What are you talking about? I've got girls telling me all up and down the east coast how much they love Brutal Truth and No Remorse when they're trying to bone me.

Like that one time this girl who said I could call her the Magna town slut told my friend she loved Marilyn Manson when he was playing a CombiChrist song.

It's not their hands I'd be sawing off! And not quickly, either.

I was going to post some innocuous memory of mine, but then I read this - the saddest, most shocking post I've seen on MB for years:-

I'd jump from bed and run downstairs, because going slowly got me a severe beating. He'd take my down in the basement and make me suck his cock. I was 10.

I'll never forget the sound of my mother's car keys jingling.
I am so sorry for ten-year-old Mord, and for Chiomara and Trollheart too, who have also been far too close to something that is just unforgivable.

Yep, that's how I read M & S too.

And a personal memory anyway:
If you squint at a lightbulb when your eyes are full of tears, it becomes a dazzling star or a shining cross. I remember suddenly noticing this effect as a baby, then looking round at a familiar room as if for the first time. Off camera, my dad is saying, "Well, he's stopped crying!" but I have no memory of crying, in fact no memory of myself at all. I felt as if I had woken up for the very first time in my life; a brief isolated burst of consciousness before returning to the irretrievable unawareness of babyhood again. It's my earliest memory; a little blip of the brain when I was maybe two years old or something, and that's why it's still important to me. (Though not to other people, of course, so apologies for the self-indulgence.)

Oh, no, such memories are plenty interesting I think. Especially as most of us likely couldn't remember or pinpoint when exactly we first experienced self-awareness. I can't remember; I can only remember my first weird accidental meditative experience when I was 7. (I had discovered that if I focused on the sound/frequency emitted by certain AM radio stations--and by my bedside fan, even-- I could get utterly lost in it and reach a strange state in which my physical surroundings faded and my sense of self sort of merged with something unknown and nebulous and faraway.)
