People who want you to accept their music taste, but call the music you listen to crap.

When you make a very clever statement and the other person doesn't get the reference.

I agree. When Justin Bieber and One Direction fangirls try to shove their music down your throat. I've had to deal with it for the past few years and it gets quite annoying. Everyone should listen to what they like and shouldn't care what people think.
When you're having a bad day, just keep going.

When someone tries to determine my mood just by an action and I go from happy to extremely pissed from them saying that.

Walking down the path I know. Banning Pokémon just because you don't know how to beat them is just plain wrong. It's like banning alcohol because it makes ugly people pretty.

People who don't get my references
People who use apostrophe's in the wrong spots' (like so)
All About Dan! (at the moment, at least)
Deep Thoughts...
The people of the Pokémon world aren't too creative. They named Pokémon after what sound they make. If we were like them, a cow would be called a "moo".

I'm Reading...
Just finished a volume of Soul Eater, volume 14. At this point, it has become very different compared to the anime, and I kind of like it. Some of the characters have gotten a lot more fleshed out (specifically the meister team of Ox, Kilik, and Kim), and things are happening quite differently. An exciting read.

I'm Playing...
The iPod music game, Cytus. While I may not know very many of the songs, I really like its music, and the gameplay is easy to pick up yet takes quite a while to master. A friend has seen me play it and he says I make it look easy, but I am still having a fun and challenging time. Definitely worth the price.

THIS. I've always felt strongly about this topic. Everyone has different tastes and interests so naturally some people like certain types of music while others don't. However if you claim the types of music you don't enjoy aren't real music then you are being very ignorant and close minded. There is good (opinion) and bad (opinion) music made from every single genre however it's all real music. The subject of a song also has no correlation to the quality of it, for the most part. Music isn't made personally for you, it's usually based on the particular singer or bands life and things in general they can relate to. If you can't relate to it that doesn't make it any less real. I listen to rap, hip-hop, rock, alternative, and EDM (electronic dance music). I don't really enjoy country music all that much, however just like the genres I do listen to, I realize that countries singers can be just as talented as anyone else and they produce quality music. You don't have to like something to respect and appreciate it.
I don't use "uber" Pokémon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

It really grinds my gears when, 1D and JB haters, they always go around saying, "Listen to real music", how does one "define" real music.

When people say that music has gotten better over the years, but in actual fact that the music has died a lot for me. There were a lot of bands and singers throughout the 90's and 00's, but I feel that music quality has died somewhere around 2010. It's very rare now that I find songs which I do like.

People misusing the word "overrated" on mediums they don't like and wish they were dead. Oh, and people who are blinded by nostalgia of the decade they grew up with having "better" quality mediums.

People who repeat their same old boring tangent a million times over. WE GET IT! *yawn*

Also people who obnoxiously accuse you of being blinded by nostalgia and being closed minded because you prefer certain things from the past. Blind hatred works both ways, it's not just the old school fans who are known for it. You can have genuine reasons for disliking certain entries of a franchise (old or new), so stop being so sensitive and reacting as if you're being personally insulted by other people's criticisms of things that you like.
