That's bullshit. Morning people aren't virtuous, they're just obnoxious. Like vegans.

Vegans aren't necessarily obnoxious. If you're wondering why they always tell you they're vegan it's because y'all are always trying to shove non-vegan crap in their faces.

The thing about stand up comedy is ..there are the comedians you are laughing WITH and there are those you are laughing AT and some do a bit of both. Like Seinfeld and Carlin are regular guys who are making observations about society...you're laughing with them . Kennison and Kaufman are outlandish characters, you're laughing at them.

The whole thing with gabagool and muzzarell is like they're trying to sound American, by dropping the vowel at the end. It's like they're ashamed of being too Itailan. I think that's where it came from originally. Same with calling tomato sauce "gravy".

I once had dinner with a friend and her then-boyfriend, and he was trying to pronounce "spinoccoli" with an accent on the third syllable, as if it were a fancy Italian dish and not a stupid portmanteau of spinach and broccoli.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Hughie Considine:

I despise "sophomore effort." It's used so reflexively for any second record. We don't say "junior" album, or effort. Why is the second one referred to as an effort, but no one says "the band's first effort"?
  2:04pm Brendan:

I had a boss that used to object or raise a point in meetings by saying ‘Well my thing is ...’ . I really didn’t want to know about her thing.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Luisa24:

I am enjoying the convo too. It's interesting because I have a 18 year old guitarist son (at Berklee in Boston). He comes up with these beautiful guitar riffs that I could listen to over and over and he includes it only once in a song. It drives me crazy, it is such a tease.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Mike Sin:

I very much enjoyed that conversation between Dave and Pseu. I'll just add -- I think it's important as folks get older not to turn into an instantly reflexive "judging machine" when it comes to a lot of new music. At this point, I've got a lot of my own hard-wired tastes, but it's better a lot of times to just hear something and say "that's just not for me" than to automatically go into the "that sucks" mode. Sometimes I think a lot folks from my age bracket ("generation x") just can't accept that their "hipness factor" ain't the commodity it once was.
  2:39pm clarke:

well, that's kinda the 'point' about getting old, right? the only problem is that most of the 'older' people are correct: their music was a lot better!!
  2:40pm clarke:

but, it is heartening to hear that a Gen-X person finds themself 'older', ha ha
  2:42pm clarke:

but i hear what Mr. Sin is saying - close-minded-ness is rampant. i do it, i know... i sometimes dive into _____ to see what's out there, and then jump right back into my closed mind.
  2:44pm clarke:

i have this thing (w/a hook) that if someone (i know) tells me to listen to something, i will do it, honestly, with an open mind. but, i also feel free to be completely honest when i review it to them, as well.
  2:46pm Sam:

It's hard to be open minded about new pop music that's totally corporate, all written by the same two guys in Sweden, designed specifically to get stuck in your head by being annoying and repetitive, instead of beautiful or interesting. They're counting on enough "open minded" people to let it slide, and think it's them who are out of touch, instead of the music being poor quality.
  2:47pm clarke:

agreed sam!
Avatar 2:48pm Pseu Braun:

What is *classic* about this thread is that...well, I play A LOT of new music and you all seem to stick around so maybe you like it?
  2:49pm clarke:

i know i will get hate for this, but i am also a person who cannot take rap/hiphop seriously in any way.

Very cool show. Cool conversation. Mike Sin is dead on, per usual.

First, Pseu plays plenty of stuff I have on my iTunes rotation—or stuff I don't have by folks I know. But second, she also plays tons of cool new stuff. Some I love and want to hear again and some is meh, but hey I've always been that way. Also, big MWAH to Pseu. Did my part!
