30 minutes trying to buy, listen to, watch a video for, or find lyrics to a song I heard on KXCI the other day. I couldn’t find any of these things.
I researched the artist and discovered that she used to be Damien Rice’s female vocalist until they fell out. I thought the musical corporation mob empire was suppressing her work because everyone hated her for screwing up his career. But then I remembered that everyone except for me hates Damien Rice in general.
Then I went to her discography on wikipedia and found out that the reason I can’t find the song is because it’s on her newest album that hasn’t even been released yet. I found myself realizing that I’m actually going to remember when it drops… And then buy it.
And for the first time in my life, I wasn’t glaring condescendingly at that music snob who does stuff like discovering new music before it comes out. I was that music snob who discovers new music before it comes out. But totally on accident And I’m not sure what to do now.
Thank you so much for your criticism. I am glad you’re honestly concerned that I have suddenly questioned my entire identity based on a song I heard on the radio, enjoyed, and went on a quest to find. It really just changed my entire perspective on things and I think my social commentary is going to be a lot more contemplative from now on. I was also really scared that others would be condescending of my taste in music, which is why I posted something I genuinely liked on the internet, where everyone can see it, and am constantly scared that I might wear the wrong musically-influenced fashions to school, or that kids might be mean to me because I like trumpets where they like synth. You really helped me overcome this deep-seated fear. One thing I don’t like though, is taking an everyday experience and writing a sarcasm-laden story about it to brighten the days of my friends who also have tumblrs. Usually I actually know my friends who also have tumblrs. We comment on each other’s posts and say hello and favorite things. That is just so much fun. I’m pretty sure you are not one of my friends who also has a tumblr. Well that was fun writing. I hope this added some flavor to your day. I hope you want to read short stories, look at photos from my life and know my last name. Otherwise I really don’t know why you are still here.
