I know when I was in middle school and listened to Blink-182, Smash Mouth, and Barenaked Ladies, I was just as passionate about those artists as I am about my favorite artists now. I fucking knew everything about Blink-182. I wasn't as determined to explore new types of music as I am today, but I was also, like, 12 and file-sharing was only in its infancy. I don't care for those artists anymore, but that doesn't mean I don't still appreciate the pleasure and joy they gave me at the time.

And regarding disliking music, I've never met anyone in person, but the author Vladimir Nabokov didn't care for music. He was synaesthetic, so maybe that had something to do with it (his brain simply wasn't wired to appreciate music?), but he was also just a strange and sometimes belligerent contrarian.

Also, Taylor Swift is awesome.

While you're probably right that a nine-year-old hasn't hear those artists, I don't agree with your larger point. For one, almost everyone I know who's my age has heard Neutral Milk Hotel. Like, it's popular with bros at my school. Guys who listen to Jack Johnson and Matchbox 20. And secondly, those artists are significant in the development of indie music in the last fifteen years - a terribly small section and time-period of music in the grand scheme of things. Just on this board alone, a guy like George has probably wider and more eclectic tastes than just about anyone else and if he's heard those two bands, I've never seen him talk about them at all.

And point to the nine-year-old for never having heard Pavement. They suck.

Well, it's not really popular, and mostly just the track In the Aeroplane Over the Sea as far as I can tell. Anyway, it's a small liberal arts college in Buttfuck Nowhere, Missouri, USA.

sorry i have to take a breather and talk about this album


Big K.R.I.T.- Return of 4 Eva

There is a revelation that happens when you listen to this album all the way through when it closes with the remix to Country Shit. Like Drum's Not Dead's "Other Side" or the Flaming Lips' "Watching the Planets", the closer culminates what you just listened to, making sense of it all, becoming this jarring spark of accessibility. The kind of epiphany that you never expect and live for as a music fan. I nearly teared up and I had no idea why, for after all, it's all just a bunch of country shit right? ReturnOf4Eva, or rather Big K.R.I.T. himself, is a tough sell because the album is such a meaty thing to tackle, nearly devoid of anything like a hit song that pops out really. Beats aren't big, it's not laden with gluing skits, hell I wouldn't even say the lyrical talent here is something to admire that much. But once you commit and just say fuck it, and proceed to listen and re-listen to it, you will yield to its unrelenting sap-drip mood and rhythms and each song becomes a frame of mind that you never want to let go of. What seems chill at first becomes absolutely alive, an explosive, emotional yearning expressed in such a serene way that is only felt if you submit your trust, which Big K.R.I.T. humbly asks for with eyes lowered.

Location: here. hi.
Sorry about this Wanta, but i've had to make a couple changes to my list because I've started to like certain songs a bit more and more as I listen to them. Especially "Wild Man" by Kate Bush and "Video Games"

This is the honest-to-god final version though.

I go to 50 here, but don't count the positions past 25.
http://rateyourmusic.com/list/animalnit ... s_of_2011/

No change to my albums list. I'm fairly satisfied with that one.

Seriously guys, I really love this song. Really happy with how many lists I've seen "50 Words for Snow" on
