Anyway, we summarily dispensed with terms like 'pretentious music snob' a long, long time ago. And if you still think that about me -- or really pretty much anyone here -- then you don't read enough posts.
I'm, like, sorry you love a kind of 'music' that you constantly have to defend to people who, poor saps, don't get it. If there's one single thing in the world that it is legitimately impossible to take the intellectual high ground on, it's fucking Skrillex.
Yes, and also everyone please stop having this conversation because it's boring and there's already another thread for it. Seriously there are like only two threads we need to keep moderately clean: this one and... that's it. Maybe the confirmations thread once we get that going, if it happens.
If this conversation continues here I'm going to put Skrillex all over this board. You'll all be throwing up after twenty seconds.
You know what is worse than a pretentious music snob? A pretentious EDM snob.
I never said the music I like is better than the music everyone else likes, so I don't know where you are going with that statement. I like all forms of music, I was just explaining why I like edm.
Deadpunk, calm down! That wasn't aimed at you. It's like if you said there is nothing worse than burnt toast, and I said, "you know what is worse than burnt toast, burnt Alfredo." I don't even like cream based sauces anyway. Sorry I made you so butthurt with that comment, I was just speaking how I feel. Move along now...
As for Skrillex, every time I start thinking, "I should hate [fill in the blank artist/band], because it's cool to hate them," I punch myself in the groin as a reminder of how stupid that concept is, and partially because seeing how the 15 year girls dress at these EDM shows makes me never want to be 15 years away from fathering one, and multiple groin punches is logistically easier than going under the knife. Then I play Adele's newest album, sing along, and pity the hipsters who are too cool to listen to popular music. Besides, hating popular music isn't cool anymore.
Adele's new album is legit, I agree. I just don't like skrillex. I don't hate on popular music at all. Shit, I like deadmau5, rhcp, foo Dr. Garbanzohters, swedish house mafia, etc. I should not of thought that comment was based on me and you are right. I did not mean to cause a shitshow.
