        Yeah... it happens to the best of us. That was from one of the darker parts of the 90s to me.

        Really though, it's actually a guilty pleasure for me... actually a lot of the music from that time period

        I don't listen to much 'old/childhood' music really. I mean, I do have music from before my time, like The Who and I do listen to it, but it doesn't dominate my music today.

              Never said it wasn't good, if it wasn't from this era.
              I was just commenting on the fact that I like to listen to new music and when I need something good, I turn to the olden, reliable stuff.

                Yeah. She... wait... he... never mind. It was a good song. K. I listen to more older pop/new wave or golden age hip hop or electronic/dubstep from 2000 up, though.

                I find it hilarious when people say "I like good music".

                No, really? I thought you liked BAD music!

                ...I like a lot of bad music. XD;

                I find a lot of recent pop to be fairly relaxing to listen to. Justin Bieber and Katy Perry are two of my guilty pleasures, haha. (Though I haven't listened to Biebs's most recent album... I'm a horrible Belieber!)

                I mostly listen to soundtracks (movie, video games, TV, etc.) but when I do listen to other kinds of music, it's usually older stuff from the 90s or 00s since I'm too lazy to keep up with the times. So I just go back to stuff I listened to when I did keep up with music trends.

                Yeah, tbqh "Boyfriend" is good. Like Bassnectar good. Though there's a stigma against listening to JB so I can't listen to it without being ridiculed :(

                I agree, although add in "and country" there for it to be complete. :>

                I'm glad I started listening to music without letting the people I hang out with influence me really. Because there are a lot of songs I like that my friends would dismiss just because of genre or artist, haha. Then I wouldn't have listened to them at all :(

                Yeah, I just go on iTunes and I start to like stuff. I don't care really what people think of my taste in music, though it's not like they can, because I never go outside unless I walk my dog or go to school. I'm like a vampire, but more nerdier.

                I think my roommates listen to "worse" music than I do, typically. So I never have to worry about feeling too judged. (We keep a Justin Bieber calendar on the main floor for muks and giggles. I don't think any of us can make fun of each other. XD) I don't really care what people think of my interests to begin with, though. If they make fun of what I like to listen to, I just make fun of myself too and go right on listening to it.

                It makes me sad for a lot of people though - they consider themselves really open-minded because they're in nerd culture and that's generally a really good trait to have and they're tolerant of other nerds...but then they turn around and are completely intolerant over things that don't mesh in with being a nerd like sports or pop music or whatever. :( The worst.

                But I thought you could still be a sports nerd or whatever. Like those people who calculate baseball statistics.

                  Hypocrisy shouldn't be sad, it's more of a good indicator of people and their character. Also, how is a nerd/someone...intolerant of a sports fanatic?

                  That's where the argument between nerd and geek comes in. XD When I say nerd I use it in the cultural way, where someone is a part of nerd culture just like a jock is part of sports culture and such. It's more a cultural thing to me than a personality thing.

                  Nerd and geek are really hard to define for me. I usually use them pretty interchangeably but I think there's supposed to be a difference.

                  Anyway, I definitely agree. :( A lot of people who do identify with typical "nerd culture" (so technology, sci-fi, anime, and so on) are usually pretty liberal and open about everything but they'll turn right around on hate on things. It always amuses me to see Bronies (My Little Pony fans) going on and on about how great it is that they overcome gender boundaries and like what they like despite intolerance for it and then... flame people for being fans of modern pop celebrities or being really excited about [random sports final]. Dude, you missed the whole point of your favourite show!

                    Cliché wars? Familiar with the terms, but the dispute just sounds...incorrect? Thing is, I've never been exposed to a class of people in my community. No-one belongs to any particular 'circle'. Not in the slightest way.
