I'm not wholly opposed to that idea. I think other people's taste should point you to things you should hear, but not to actually like. That's obviously just a taste thing.

But I do think that to an extent it's important to know what's going on.

Well, have a look through my threads, you'll find that I don't discriminate at all. Also, I personally couldn't care much about what people think of AC, I just like saying they're shit and see what happens. That can't be too much of a bad thing, since I'm confident I know what I like and what I don't like.

I agree. why do you think I always ask you guys what you are listening to?????????

You guys are more forthcoming and honest and informative than anyone at the goddamn record stores!

In 1977 people by the millions were "actually" listening to Fleetwood Mac and that shit is pure garbage to me. what does that even mean man?

again, I don't care about what other people listen to... but it is very pleasantly surprising to me that AC are this big right now... just a few years ago, they made a very "weird" album, and released a live album that is pretty similar to "noise music"... what other band out there can sell this many records with the kind of background/back catalogue that AC has?

i will say that i bet most of the people in my hometown in florida don't even know who ac are. they will cont. listening to nu rock and metal that was released over ten to fifteen years ago.

the people that do like ac where i lived are the biggest dorks. playing their ultimate frisbee and hacky sack while pretending to take drugs and run around barefooted. horrible. almost as bad as the unltimate v neck shirts dudes in williamsburg wear.

we will see how many AC records are in the used bin at the record store and at the half price books in a few years.

I've never met anyone that likes AC apart from one of my best friends.

just be sure you don't dismiss some good stuff because it doesn't sound like it falls in the parameters of your taste. I can speak to that from experience... I also used to dismiss stuff because it was written about in tons of magazines... I'm not saying that you do, but the phrase I bolded in your post makes me think there's a possibility

we all love something that others think is crap. so what?

the merits of AC were not the issue, but their effect on MASS CONSCIOUSNESS, their "popularity" or lack thereof.

I must live in the hippest town ever. Though really all the cool kids live in Bloomington, one town over. I know a shit-ton of people who know and like AC and I certainly didn't get any of them into them except my girlfriend. Then again, I can name 5 people who love Cerberus Shoal in real life ...

then again, I can only name like 1 person who likes Sun City Girls. So, I dunno. Fuck it. Who cares.
