Old Nov 18th, 2010, 12:08 AM        Which bands are awesome measuring sticks/estimates for finding blow hards, douchebags
pretentious mooks, etc.

I'll gladly admit, it's amazing I could even speak to people without passing the thought of being able to offend them when I took GWAR way too seriously when I was in a phase of "Excessive gore and violence is stupid!" Wait, I didn't. I was also "Edgy" and "crass" as fuck. I need research!

I'm glad I hate myself as much as I do now!

I'd agree with that, but everyone I've know that was a fanboy of Nickelback or Tool has been a tool. Not just y'know enjoying the music, but going out of their way to have bumper stickers, posters, and other things of the sort.

I'm amazed to type this, but for the most part, ignore willie's post.

In my experience, people who adjust their outward appearance to reflect the music that they listen are the only music fans I don't like. So emos, goths, heavily pierced punk fans, all black-wearing long-haired metal fans, flannel-wearing grunge fans, tight pants and Buddy Holly glasses wearing indie fans, etc.

I mean I guess these people are trying make a statement or whatever, but I find it dumb. And when you actually talk to these people most of them only talk about the culture related to their musical preferences. It's about as one-dimensional as a personality could get.

Two things you guys! I had the same sentiment and open mindedness that Willie explained but I have beaten off of that path way too long ago! I don't know if I'll get back to that!

I also have the same sentiment as esuolhim towards people who go all out or even slightly model themselves after their culture. But I've never even talked to them! I even hate it when people wear only t-shirts, or even hats, with band names!

Mother fucker, I don't know if this is the worst irony or the funniest shit I've seen all week.

But yeah, I do have to say Moby is terrible as I liked him in my teenage years and when I listen to him now, the only thoughts that come to mind is the hope that I don't make a sad drama romantic story in my head from the ambience and cry like a little bitch.

Portishead. I remember liking their song sour times. Their other stuff, I haven't given much time! I'm gonna do that! After Honky Dory!

Also Willie. Introducing your teenager to ICP is literally the procedure to commit an abortion past the legal trimester. ( :*DE

Thanks guys! Now I have something to actually do!

I agree with Willie and Milpool, what people listen to by itself is not the issue. It is the people who change their outward appearance to reflect their musical tastes are annoying as hell. Not just because of their attitudes (which are bad enough) but because each and every one of them believes their 'style' is unique, and remain deliberately blind to the fact that there are so many other 'unique' individuals who have the exact same 'style'.

Also fanboys do indeed suck
