I agree with all the Katrina lectures, and yet I don't.

I think I have a fairly evolved taste in music, but I guess I'm still dumb enough to like Regina and NIN?

Yet most of this bashing on Katrina seems to come from people taking what she said a little too personally. Passionate views should not be shouted down imho.

No ones shouting her down, or trying to oppress what she said, she has every right to say it. But if you say something like

Quote
Because, like serious, part of why I don't come here anymore is because you all have shitty music taste

You're going to get friction back. Right? Otherwise we're all a bunch of pushovers.

I personally agree with what armyoflarry said. Now:

I forgot to post two other more mainstream bands that are not really new,but they recently came out with new cds, which means I have been listening to their new stuff, or what I could get of their free stuff, AKA myspace.

Autolux

space noise

Blonde Redhead

Hey, there is a big difference between friction from a few sources and an all out pile-on like this thread was going in. I think the doggie thread was passionate, but there was not really any ganging up or personal attacks.

You better push back or I'd call you all wussies. Mamby Pamby and the like.
Besides all the music you guys listen to sucks compared to the music I make. Listen to my music or continue to be an un-enlightened dimwit with no taste.  ;)

Now, if you excuse me, I'm going back to singing along to the Spice Girls to prepare for their reunion tour. 
I don't know if you're trying to be funny, but there is NOTHING wrong with that.

I'd kill to see them again...

Ah, you caught my ghost post.

Anyway -- I do enjoy singing along to the Spice Girls, especially during intoxicated karoake.

However -- I refuse to pay to see them live.

Put in a generalization like "you all have shitty music taste" (even if it started as a joke) and you're asking for a pileup. 

I remember getting into a bit of trouble with generalizations in the dog-thread myself, and realizing the error of my ways.

Now, if you excuse me, I'm going back to singing along to the Spice Girls to prepare for their reunion tour. 

Can we stop comparing these threads now? The subject matter of these two threads could not be further apart in my opinion.

and quit deleting your threads. Your music taste sucks, and may a thousand pit bulls descend on your flesh!!!  :violent5:

That last bit is a joke, in case you were wondering.  :icon_rr:

Fair enough, point taken, ganging up not needed. I still need to check out your music.

This basically sums up my tastes:



Just kidding. I listen to fairly random mainstream stuff, ranging from crappy to good.

I'm actually a humorless old maid who likes to burn pitbulls at the stake late at night.

I keep deleting my posts to this thread because they seem pointless beyond adding unnecessary fuel to an unnecessary fire.

So there.

Plus I don't believe you all are deserving of my wondrous wisdom on such important topics as this.

Isn't it great being better than everyone else? Not like you would really know, since I am so much better than you.

Now back to peddling everyone's horrible music taste...
