TS--I happen to know a good deal about music, as you might have noticed, but I haven't listened to Pussy Galore yet, and don't own any Stooges. Does this make me an idiot? There's an amazing amount of music to be listened to, and it's nearly impossible to listen to every so-called "seminal" band (One of the most overused terms in music journalism). Have you listened to the Free Design? This Heat? Brise-Glace? What about Steve Reich? Iannis Xenakis? Karlheinz Stockhausen? (Oops, that's not rock music). Okay, how about Huggy Bear? Clikatat Ikatowi? Chromatics? Silver Apples? Van Dyke Parks? David Axelrod? I've listened to all of them. Hooray for me.
Tumbling has never even been to a show, just so you all know.
Do you not lash out at me if I don't like some of the music you listen to simply because I occasionally post on the "Indierock" board? (A board which seems ridiculously obsessed with indieness.) I'm only 21, but I've experienced enough elitism and snobbery in the Seattle music community to know that it's pointless and petty. I enjoy hearing a lot of what you have to say, but it's really hard to respect your point of view when your head is lodged so firmly up your ass. Attacking people like this is just masturbatory; wipe the cum off your keyboard and go see a fucking show.
