Whenever I work I always have my ipod playing through the speakers with a mix of the most normal of my weird music. Most of the patrons who notice the music don't have anything nice to say about it, but everyone I work with seems to like it, so I don't care. It's always been my fantasy that someone (anyone really) recognizes the artists or songs and wants to talk to me about it.
Today, a guy came in and was so excited that I was playing Bjork. He said that his friend in Calgary helped build some of the set (or possibly instruments) for the Volta tour. I didn't have much time to talk to him, but he's at the pool a lot and he also knew Animal Collective, Baths, and Boards of Canada. I can't even explain how big of a deal this is for me. Most people that I interact with on a daily basis are exclusively country fans.
