Elaborate please when and where I might have posted this. Otherwise, your comment doesn't have a lot of ground to stand on. Also, it isn't a matter of anyone being dense, but rather it is an inquisition into whether you are trolling or not

It's obvious trolling. He just summarized what you have written and made an attempt at a funny comment on it.

I knew it was weird. I would have never posted something like that on a forum. However, I guess I took the bait. I would have let it die if he had responded again though.

Well, some people are more into music than others. Some listen to it casually, and some take it very seriously. Heck, there's some that don't even like music. Everybody sees music differently, and because of that, it hard to really say how big of a fan someone is of music. I'm pretty much the only person that I know (in person) that is totally obsessed with music. I'm constantly trying to figure out how too make my music sound better (via gear like headphones, amp's, higher quality files etc...). I like looking for artist from different genres, from around the world. Anyway, Just enjoy what you like.

It really comes in when it's in regards to how much you listen to music in a day. I usually listen to music 24/7 all the time, whether it be through the internet or a CD, etc. Not everyone falls in this category, however, and that's fine. We just need to encourage more of the casual listeners to expand their catalogue and find more good music to put in their library, and maybe get them in the world of the album!

Also, nice to know you like ADoseofBuckley as well. I wouldn't necessarily call him a Youtuber, though, and more of using the platform to get his name out (his words, not mine, XD).


One thing that gets on my nerves about some people is that some people refuse to listen to certain kinds of music because it is "old" or something. I guess that is why I mentioned groups like the beatles, pink Floyd, rolling stone, etc. you can still be a fan by not listening to them, but refusing to listen to something based off a criteria as frivolous as the decade it was written in seems absurd to me.


I agree with this of course as you know me as a big fan of a 70s powerhouse supergroup in Parliament-Funkadelic and you and I both know that good music transcends time and sounds just as fresh as the day it was recorded and prime examples are: Beatles, Rolling Stones, James Brown, War, AC/DC, and Parliament-Funkadelic.


Yeah, I definitely have an interest in War and Parliament-Funkadelic, especially the latter. I'm susceptible to these "funky beats," and it sounds like the funk genre is made for me in some way (especially since I'm a drummer/percussionist after all).


It's all about the one and it's always nice to see another fan and we're alike in the fact that you're a hardcore Prog Rock fan and I'm a hardcore Funk fan.


I'm a hardcore alternative rock guy. Anything that innovates and goes against the grain is alright in my book. Hey, did you ever check out gang of four? I think you might like them. At least I hope you do


That makes 3! You're a friend of mine if you have a love and appreciation for music in general.


cool, but you didn't answer my question? Did you ever check out gang of four?


No, but I will get 'round to it.

I feel you dude. I'm always looking for new bands to listen to. I guess I should give international music a shot too. I do like to hear my lyrics in a language I understand, but why let something like that be an obstacle to enjoyment?

All I am seeing from the OP is self-entitled hipster. Music isn't quantum physics and pretending you're a better music fan then anyone else just makes me think even more poorly of you.

Lmao, it doesn't matter what you listen to. If you truly enjoy a certain type of music, then you're a music fan. It doesn't matter what type of music you listen to, not everyone can enjoy all types of music, that doesn't mean that they're not t a "true" fan of music.

This I very much agree with, right now there is a Japanese and German person listening to some Funk while there is a American person listening to some J-Pop or K-Pop.

i WILL SAY rap is a non music. And that hip hop sucks. But I've listened to plenty of classic music. (all thanks to my parents) And love music as a whole. Not rap or country but there are exceptions.

i actually just listened to an album by a Japanese band called Boris and I freakin loved it. The album was called pink and I didn't actually know that they were Japanese when I was listening to it. I guess I don't always pay attention to vocals when I am listening to the song. After I found out that the vocals were in Japanese, I was like "You enjoyed it regardless before you knew what language it was sung in, so what does it matter if you don't really know what the songs are about or what the vocals are. It sounds good so why not enjoy listening to it."

is something a non music just because you don't like it? I understand that a good portion both have garbage acts in them. but what necessarily makes something music? Does it mean that there has to be instruments playing or has to be comprised of this and that? By that notion, is electronic music non music? You are entitled to your opinion and I respect I can respect that. I love classic music as much as anyone, and I used to have the same perspective as you do. However, I don't think you can classify anything as non music. It may not be music that you like necessarily, but I think it still counts. Rap/hip hop can be generic and derivative in some cases, but there are good acts in all genres. Music isn't above criticism and it is fine for you to not like certain genres, but I think everything counts as music if it has a set of sounds in a set order. Whether it is good or bad music is up to your discretion.
