Why man?? It seems the only intelligent discussions I get are with you guys and the HOM crowd. Are you guys the same? No one really "gets" your sonic tastes where you live?

All people know here are Country, Taco Rock, Hip Hop, Top 40, Metallica & the following AC/DC albums: Back In Black, Who Made Who, The Razor's Edge & Live & VH's S/T & 1984.

Hardly anyone (other than my brother and my friends Glenn and Brian) "gets" my music either. There's one guy I work with who's a bit older than me and he often pretends to be "down" by telling me "Hey man, I heard Sabbath on the radio this morning!" but if I talk to him about anything other than popular songs by classic bands, I get that Homer Simpson blank-eyed stare from him. Laughing

I've gotten used to it. I always have a stack of CDs on my desk at work, and occasionally someone will flip thru'em and say "I never heard of any of these bands." My standard response is something along the lines of "I specialize in bands that nobody's ever heard of, or forgot about twenty years ago."

My tastes are so friggin' odd that it's hard to find people who understand all of it. Why do you think I started a message board? I mean really...how many people do you meet whose favorite types of music are jazz, prog rock & stoner?

lol!

One nice thing though, Austin is an art town, so you get all the little small indie bands through here and there are tons of clubs and actually a few real music stores left here. So I'm kinda lucky.

Yeah, people freak out on my music all the time especially all the underground 70's rock, metal, prog, proto metal, etc. I have. That and I have entire discogs of a lot of bands.

I relate to very few people in general, no one I know shares my taste in music, movies of books.

I'm disappointed that most of my buddies that I've been friends with since high school have totally lost touch with the music we all knew & loved. I understand that with growing-up comes other responsibilities and getting the newest KISS album isn't top priority, but it's like most of them are stuck in a time-warp of music from 1985 till about 1993.

I had a Christmas party recently and while the guys were looking over my collection, most were shocked that there was new stuff from Megadeth, Alice in Chains, Ace Frehley, WASP, etc. And then they all had their hands out. "Dude, can you make me a copy of this?". I called 'em out on it too. With one exception, my buddy whose got 2 kids & a third on the way, the rest of them are single, employed and more than able to drive their lazy asses to FYE or Best Buy and make a purchase. Especially when the local FYE has most of their stuff at $9.99. They'll drop money at the bar or when we're playing cards no problem, but when it comes to buying new music, their assholes pucker up tighter than a snare drum.

^^ yep, know exactly how that is. Alot of people I know stopped following music once they settled down, got married and had kids. A couple of my friends are just as you describe, they don't own any CDs newer than the mid-90's. They still listen to the same 80's crap they've been playing since we were teenagers...I don't begrudge them still liking the music they did when they were younger...but they've completely turned themselves off to any possibility of listening to something new and/or music from different genres they aren't comfortable with.

Depressing as hell is how I'd describe that.

I'm thankful I can still afford new music after having a wife and two kids, a lot of my friends are just like MG71 & Detuned described but some have worsened b/c their wives don't allow them to listen to anything but Country & Top 40 bullshit.

Most of my guys can't even use the old "wife & kids" excuse. They're single, no kids, still @ home, some employed, some not. Geez, I gotta get some new friends and ditch these losers.

Thankfully, my wife gets my love of music and rarely, if at all, hassles me about my one vice, buying and listening to hard rock & heavy metal.

I am thankful my wife is like MG's wife and gets my love of music.

I donot get people who stopped following music or feel the only good music was created in the past.

My wife must figure there are worse things for me to be hooked on. I don't gamble, I don't do dope, I'm not having an affair. As long as my lone "vice" (other than beer) is collecting heavy metal CDs she's OK with it.

My wife is in the same boat there. I'm on the straight and narrow with everything else, so she's fine with the music purchases. For the most part anyway. As long as we can still get a night out from time to time at out favorite little Italian restuarant, she's cool. And she knows of my "economically conservative" ways (re: cheap), so when I come home with a stack of new music, she knows I didn't spend the monthly mortgage on 'em.

I live in an area where social status depends on how big the lift kit is on your Ford F-150 or how many gold teef you have in your mouf. Needless to say, I know not one single person in my town that listens to anything remotely as I do. Which is ironic because Tampa is within spitting distance.

Nictoine isn't a vice. It's a psychic vampire that has control of my body and soul.

I think the difference between us and maybe the average music listener, is that we are also music lovers. We did not stop listening or following bands because we liked this bands whether they were trendy or not.

Most folks have music on as backround music or because their friends like it etc. When they get older they feel they have out grown that music, which is of course bullshit.

Another thing thats annoying about today's world in music, so many people are bitching theres nothing new out thats good and blah blah. When really, there's plenty, no one's just truly looking for it. Hell, I dont think theres ever been this many GOOD doom and stoner bands at once.

That pisses me off to no end. in 2010, it's never been easier to discover and purchase music these days, yet people complain that there's nothing new. Or say "Hmmmmm whatever happened to [band X]?" Try Google ya lazy bastard.

Here's my little circle jerk of friends; musically we consist of:

Me, the classic-rock elitist
The ELP worshipping prog-rocker
The extreme-metal guy
The grunge guy
The underground-Christian-techno guy (seriously)
The wannabe gangsta-rapper
The alternative "anything anybody has ever heard of sucks" guy

So the only ones who ever discuss music are me, Proggy and Grungy. That way we avoid knife fights.

I've been on a Grateful Dead kick for a coupla weeks now, I've listened to every expanded version of the studio albums over and over and I think it's making me have a retro active opium trip. clown

I totally know how hard it is to collect new music once one takes to the ol'ball and chain lifestyle, man I love my wife and kids, but it sucks when moments like cruising through wal-mart I see like finding the holy grail ohh a new album by a band I love and it's like oh the kids need diapers and other stuff like that, so the love of good music gets put aside for the day to day life, and I'm lucky to have five bucks just to put gas in the car to get to work for another few days, man that's kind of a drag sometimes. So I am blessed to have good friends/co-workers who have helped me in my music rut from time to time, so God bless those dudes! Music is my fruit of life Don't take it away!
