please, please explain this to me...
while piddling around lj i came across a comment made in a community in reference to the persons favorite bands- "gawwd your favorite bands are so mainstream"
after that point i collapsed in a fit of laughter.
i mean, somebody must listen to mainstream music or else*gasp* it wouldn't be mainstream now would it?
a person's favorite bands are just a preference, correct? liking music is only but an interest that many many people happen to share. for some people it's just a certain radio station they listen to and a couple cds they own, but for others it's a way of life or a job, many even take pride in finding that awesome new band that nobody has ever heard of.
my mother, makes another great example- she couldn't name 3 bands off the top of her head and doesn't even listen to the radio.
i guess my point here is that there is no point in criticising someone on their choice of music unless you are going to criticise them on their sexual preference, the way they dress themselves, the activities they enjoy doing, etc...
OMG you like to read, play sports, and hang out with your friends?! THAT IS SOOO MAINSTREAM! i sooo totally won't talk to you. ever. you disgust me. get out of my sight before i vomit.
