I used to be huge into emo.. the quiet to loud dynamics blew me away at the time. But now the last thing I wanna hear is someone yelling off the top of his lungs about heartbreak.


Songs about a woman who has done you wrong or unrequited love are the last thing I wanna hear now in general.

This too.

I’m done with that period of my life where I like songs because they remind me of or bring back the feeling of longing/pining/being fucked over by some girl I thought I loved when I was young and stupid.

I was over that by the time I got into my last long-term relationship. And even when that relationship kind of melted, I still didn’t crave the melancholy shit.

In fact, songs that strike that chord AND are interesting from this decade (See, “Runaway,” or Bob Iver’s “OVER S∞∞N” — shut up it’s a goddamn great song — or however many Car Seat Headrest songs) have been actually harder for me to listen to than songs that don’t evoke those feelings.

And a LOT of the rock type shit I was drawn to evokes those eekings. I can’t tell you how many months on end I spent listening to Built to Spill’s “Perfect From Now On” in college... Jesus. And I still love — LOVE — that album, and I still love “Anthems for a Seventeen-Year-Old Gorl” and so on, but I just can’t even with a lot of that stuff anymore.

Too old. Too Irish. Too prone to bouts of alcoholism and sucking myself into my own vortex of sadness. Too much to do.

There’s a lot less of that shit in hip-hop and electronic music, and when it does come (which it obviously does) there’s usually a good amount of humor with it... that or it slaps like fucking unholy fuck.
