Smezzer's "how shit the Music board?" thread/posts had its points. And with the modest success (but pretty frackin good for me!) of my own Lyrics thread, I've decided to scrap my self-imposed silence and bring back nonsense music threads. (Albeit more periodically.)
It's a form of self-abuse. I know that doctor...so fucking what. I'll always be known as the yank who writes the long posts nobody reads. I accept that as my place in our DiS world.

OK, so I'm dealing with normal people. For these folks experimental rock is Coldplay, which is cool because I love Coldplay. But after that the conversation gets stale. They've never heard of The Wrens and I can't think of anything nice to say about John Mayer.
It could be a problem of the astrological positions of our respective planets but I've tried talking to young people too. As soon as they say they've bought a Hinder album I go into a Jack Black/Hi Fidelity spasm.
I don't want to give up talking about music away from DiS, but I'm afraid talking about music alienates the outside world. Is this our curse?
No! There must be MOR music (besides Coldplay...hehe) that doesn't stink like roadkill. Help me relate to my co-workers. Help me relate with my girlfriend's friends. Help me relate to my own goddamn friends!
MOR Music That Doesn't Taste Like Morning Breath!
