AAARGH! DON'T SAY "BLING". Just don't fucking say it, stop doing it. It isn't cute, no one who might actually use that as a real and non-facetious slang word actually still uses it as such. It's DEAD. It's so dead that it's INSULTING to hear it coming from so many milquetoast white people. It stopped being funny. It will never be funny again. You are not going to revivie it.

I'm not saying there is no room for growth. I'm saying that top 40 is so melded together that genres are meaningless.
"Indie" used to actually mean "independent"... whether that meant independent labels or just not the norm. Now it means "anyone who tries to sound even a little like Sonic Youth"

I'd call LP "utter shit, genre-less, pop pap" but then I'm a fan of hardcore and of rapcore, both of which they murder the fuck out of. It's difficult seeing interesting *original* music you love watered down and churned out by AR-Friendly bands of the week.

Becuase you didn't really pay attention to music until just little over 10 years ago, I don't think you'd really get the sort of hardwon devotion I'm talking about in reference to beloved genres. Music is very personally important to me on a daily basis and always has been as far back as I can remember.

Rap can be good. Hip Hop artists still exist, they just don't tend to get any airplay these days. The only radio worth listening to is XM

No, I suppose not.. I enjoy a great deal of music and listen to it all the time, but I've never been much of a devotee of particular genres, or even many bands/artists. (Further, I tend to like bands and have no idea who's in them at any point in their variable histories.)


I've been leaning toward XM, but I figure I'll wait until I get a newer vehicle with much better sound damping.
