bullshit. i'm all in favour of controversial statements, but don't act suprised when everyone else comes down on you like a tonne of bricks for making them. although this is one of the more interesting threads i've seen of late, so perhaps my response is a compliment in disguise.

Yep, Beli, you're a nutjob!

I took it as a joke too...hence my reply. (but the bonus points still apply) I'm surprised at the animosity directed toward the thread starter, as I thought it was kinda cute.

i've developed a sudden liking for mainstream commercial radio country music




i like music. i didn't take what financeguy said as a joke, i took it as a attempt at trying to add some humor into fixing this rather dead forum. face it, this place is nothing but "what bands OTHER THAN U2 do you like" threads and top # lists. not to mention a couple thousand posts about the killers and interpol. a year or so ago, it was coldplay and the white stripes. appologies to the fans of those bands (hey, i like 3 out of those 4 i mentioned, something that seemed to get overlooked the last time i mentioned this), i'm not saying you jumped on various trends, i'm just saying that these ARE the trends here.

financeguy was hitting a touchy subject, apparently, for most people in here...everyone likes to believe that they are so eclectic, when in reality very few people truly are. and it's OK to only like one kind of music, but you're going to have to deal with the elitist music snobs of the world telling you otherwise. that's their problem. but however uneclectic someone is, chances are they may still really passionately love those few bands that they listen to. so that's where people take offense when someone tells them they don't really listen to music.

what the fuck...i'm rambling...

i claim to be pretty eclectic. and i also know i'm a snob. i'm also aware of the fact that there are people here with a more expansive music collection that encompasses more styles, eras, and genres than mine. i don't star threads here, though, because it's been my experience that very few people actually care what i have to say, even when it's a question.

Wow did someone mention music? IWB made a 7 paragraph reply! And yes I counted them all, even the one sentence 'paragraphs'

IWB brings up a good point about eclectic tastes - take a look at the thread with the top 10 albums of the year (according to posters here) and they're all pretty much albums that belong to the subset of the same genre. There is brilliant stuff being recorded out there, in rap and hip hop and country and you would never know it if you just read threads here. I think most of us here like rock or indie alt-rock, and our choices reflect that, but oftentimes, I think if you want a really good picture of what's truly out there, you may have to venture outside of LS, and there's nothing wrong with that.

I'd be interested in knowing financeguy's favorite artists/albums.

Indulge us.

Finance Guy: you said you have been meaning to get Pearl Jam's other CDs besides Ten? Well, 'Vs.' is really good (I like it better than Ten), but they haven't reached that level again since. I'm not saying their other albums are crap, it's just that Vs. is the only one I still enjoy listening to years later.

iwb is right. 99% of what i like can be fit into the same genre. everything i like is rock/synth pop type stuff. keyboard and guitar driven music. i think even U2 can be fit into that category.

the 1% is the pop music i'll occasionally indulge myself in if a good enough song/artist comes along. like i should even have an opinion on it, they all suck right?

I like a wide variety of music. I just don't post about it here.


Should I start an Emerson Lake and Palmer thread and see what happens?

Or George Jones?

Or Dean Martin?


Or is typhoon gonna give me shit for it?

Same here. I can start threads all day long about all the rap and trance artists I listen to, but no one is going to reply to them (except mofo, probably...hehe). Yeah, this forum leans a lot toward indie rock, but that doesn't mean no one here listens to anything else. Lots of us do, but there's only so many other people who are going to want to talk about Fabolous or the Fiery Furnaces with you. Hence there's some lack of true variety. But that doesn't mean the variety isn't here at home in our CD collections and ipods.

Exactly - like I said, if you want a really thorough discussion about genres outside of rock, LS really may not be the best place to do it.
