I've found some impressively contrived phrases today. In a list of phrases identifying himself an LJ person wrote:
"corporate whore, musical cognescente, introspective thinker, seperatist" (sic)

The italicized portion is what got me.
"Musical cognescente"

I'm going to break that down.
First of all, 'congnescente' isn't a word. Cogent is a word... maybe he meant he was musically cogent? Musically compelling?
But that doesn't make much sense either.
I think he probably mean 'cognisant.'
So he is aware of music.
Which means he probably is capable of hearing things and recognizing sounds.
Rock the fuck on, man.


Well, several times he list music as an interest/obsession... and points to his interest list for the things he digs. His interest list reads like an "artists you must own" list from Rolling Stone.
No really.
I just don't believe that anyone is 'ecclectic' enough to like Dee-Lite *and* Coldplay well enough to give them equal billing.
Maybe I'm wrong though.. I mean ... *my* tastes are all fucked up and all over the map... but to me Coldplay and Jimmy Eat World both belong in a category that belongs nowhere NEAR De La Soul or hell... Jurassic5 for that matter.

I think he was trying to say "deltron", but said 'deetron' instead. But a little credit there for even knowing who the hell Deltron is.

And he typed out "nu school breaks"... which is just a scary phrase, I think.
scaaaaaaaaaaary phrase.

Maybe I'm just not cognescente enough of music.
and maybe I'm just a snarky bitch.
EH?


Don't answer that.
