no more the moon shines on lorena.

bye and bye (9k image)i hate indie rock. i hate post punk. i hate techno. i hate pop. i hate country. i hate classical. i hate prog rock. i hate emo. i hate salsa. i hate hip hop. i hate world. i hate folk. i hate jazz. i hate new age. i hate easy listening. i hate bluegrass. i hate gospel. i hate reggae. i hate all of it. i hate music.

sometimes i get too idealistic…..and unreasonable. why can’t it all just be music?? people throw statements around without thinking. how can you hate an entire genre of music? you can dislike what you’ve heard…..but it’s ignorant to think that it’s all the same and that nothing could change your mind about it. and if you do think that…..then you’re probably close minded…..and have poor taste in music. sorry. if you think i’m wrong…..then email me a list of what sits in your record collection.

yes…..i’m music snob. so what. i don’t want to spend my time listening to bland sounds of mundane musicians who don’t care enough about their craft to see it for what it really is. they have choices. they can choose to get in line for overused riffs and chords…..recycled progressions…..and empty lyrics. it happens every day. and people live to buy it. other people choose to see how ridiculous that is…..and they decide not to buy into it. they learn about what they’re listening to. they learn what it is…..they learn how it’s done. when they say, “i hate this band”……they can tell you why. and i can respect that. because you won’t hear these people slag a genre because they heard a lame billy ray cyrus song eleven years ago. because they took the time to do some research…..and they heard hank williams…..or jimmie rodgers…..or the carter family.

i‘m not asking for everyone to have my taste in music. i just want them to take the time to learn about it. and to never take the word of someone else and pass up listening to something because of some preconceived notion of what it is. and when you do listen to it…..understand why you like it. or why you don’t like it. i think the more informed you are…..the more incredible music you’ll find. and you’ll be a better person for it. believe me.
