it's such a strange mish mash of so many terrible kinds of music?
Yeah, I guess. I mean, it's done so on such a... proficient manner... that I can't help but not hate it all that much. One of the things that I've tried to do is hate on shit less that's not meant for me. And the only area that seems to be working for me is music.
Semi-related: came to an epiphany the other night... the Insane Clown Posse? I have no problems with them. Again, can't stand their music, but I respect the fact that they've been able to develop such a massive fanbase and become millionaires despite the fact that they never get any radio play and how hardly anyone buys records anymore.
Mind you, we could each rattle off a ton of names of contemporary musical acts that enjoy a loyal following, including healthy album sales and the such, but your average diehard ICP fan is unique because they remind me of mainstream music fans of the mid 90s. So much like an endangered specials, I'm willing to leave them alone, along with the fact that they are pretty entertaining. Cue discussion touching upon natural selection...
