That would make me 77 years old by that math.

Wasn't this the guy that absolutely despises hip-hop? Or to be as charitable as possible - "doesn't consider hip-hop to be music"?

EDIT: yes! Had to scroll endlessly through the Wordpress blog to find it, but here it is:

https://jasonsiocoblogs.wordpress.co...-rant-in-2021/

He attempted to post this here, made a thread about it and everything, but one of the mods axed it I think. I've saved it and posted it below in the spoiler for MusicBanter posterity:

Spoiler for Rap = Crap:
My Rap & Hip Hop Rant in 2021

My Rap & Hip-Hop Rant in 2021

* Bash me all you want, but I don’t like rap and hip-hop. Here’s why:
*
* When someone plays rap on their phone, computer, car speaker, or whatever, it gives me sad feelings or I feel sorry for the person’s poor listening experience.
*
* Kids who bullied, marginalized me, and gave me a cold shoulder (ostracize, rejection); they have rap and hip-hop on their playlists.
*
* My siblings are millennials. My brother was born in 1995 and my sister born in 2001. They have rap and hip-hop on their playlists. But my musical tastes went into a different direction.
*
* I am fortunate that I was born in 1988. When I was Grade 1 in 1994, Guns & Roses and Nirvana were popular. When I was Grade 7 in 2000 bands like Limp Bizkit, Korn, Linkin Park and Nu-Metal were popular. In my early teens in 2003, Lead Guitar, Guitar Soloing, and Jamming were still a thing. I lived through a time where it was a trend for every teenager to pick up the guitar. If I was born in a different time period, let’s say 1996 or 1999, I would be a DJ, making Trance Music or something.*
*
* To close the guitar thing, when I was 15 in 2003, I was part of that wave where every teenager in my church at that time aged 14-16, picked up the guitar for the first time. Stuff happened over me and my guitar contemporaries over the years: some went to college, some got a good career, some got married, and they stopped playing guitar. I believe that of all those groups of kids in my church that picked up the guitar in 2003, I survived that initial guitar novelty phase and I am the only one left in that group that is still playing guitar up to this present day in 2021 at the time of this writing. And I am on pace to play guitar for the rest of my life.
*
* Back to my hip hop rant: I consider rap and hip hop the poor man’s music. When someone listens to rap and hip hop, I equate it* to a beautiful, popular and preppy white girl and her shopping tastes. Instead of shopping at Forever 21, Aritza, or Michael Kors, or whatever retail store in a Galleria or a Large Mall, she prefers shopping at some secluded, no name small business retail store in the middle of a plaza that no one goes to. The few people who shop at that retail store are usually brand new Afghan and Syrian Refugees (Migrants). This is what I think in my head to people who enjoy listening to rap and hip-hop in 2021.
*
* I once read an article on how the musical tastes of a person reflect their intelligence. I don’t want to parade myself as a highly intelligent person but let’s break it down:
*
* I enjoy listening to high information music, usually with an improvisational aspect in it.
*
* General People listen to rap and hip hop.
*
* Most of my Top 10 favorite songs have strong melodies and complex harmonies in them.
*
* General People listen to freestyle rap with no melody and a repetitive chord progression.
*
* If* you ask me who is more of a rockstar? Buckethead or Eminem. I consider Buckethead and many other varieties of guitar players like him to be the real rockstars.
*
* General People consider Eminem or a variety of rappers like him dropping bars or on my vantage point, just yapping random **** on the microphone with words that happen to rhyme (Wow World Beater Genius!) to be a rockstar!
*
* If I have a date with a blonde girl; I prefer taking her to Broadway, to an opera, a symphony, a jazzy gig, or watching a movie in theatres with Hans Zimmer or a big name composer as the film composer.
*
* General People take their girlfriends to a nightclub, a dance party or a rave with all kinds of rap “music.” And get a hangover, and DUI and all that stuff.
*
Conclusion: I do have a history of showing my displeasure with rap music on the internet over the years. This post is actually mellow and less bombastic compared to my furious tirades with the Eminem and rap community on the internet in the past. Back in those days, I was calling Eminem: Feminem. I don’t know if I passed my prime or haven’t done this for a while. But I seem to be chill and low energy today. Maybe it’s because I doubled down on the parlay that the Dallas Cowboys would win on Monday Night Football and they did and got myself extra $$$! I actually had another thread that I had in mind to post that was ruminating in me the whole week. But these profound thoughts just came out of nowhere. So I decided that this will be my post for this week.

Yeah, I think that qualifies as an autistic rant.
Kinda has the hallmarks of one.

I do like the idea of "watching a movie in theatres with Hans Zimmer" tho.
Could be an interesting experience.
