Just remembered what the "more that I was gonna post" was:
My ensissification continues. (Man -- I am good at making up words. Ensissification is much better than pussification.)
As has already been established, while I listen to some pretty hard stuff (Rollins Band, Rancid, Atari Teenage Riot, Peaches, Probot, Ramones, Shellac, Rocket From The Crypt, Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu), I listen to some incredibly soft stuff (Belle & Sebastian, Rufus Wainwright, ABBA, The Carpenters, The Beach Boys, Broken Social Scene, Olivia Tremor Control). Now, where I live, there is no good college station that I can pick up. There are two that I can pick up just an hour north -- KRNU, from UNL, and KIWR, from Iowa Western Community College. (I'm not counting the radio station that I helped make, KDNE because its range is terrible.) So, typically when I listen to the radio, I listen to Nebraska Public Radio simply because the other stations aren't playing anything I want to hear.
Lately, though, I've been hitting the 'seek' button on my radio. After scanning through several country and top-40 stations, I come across the soft rock stations. One plays loads of '80s music.
I AM LISTENING TO SOFT ROCK/ADULT CONTEMPORARY STATIONS!
Where the hell did I go wrong? Did my parents raise me wrong? Did I somehow wind up in bizarro world, where being a fan of Culture Club gives you loads of street cred, while listening to Bad Religion makes you gay? Where listening to Scissor Sisters makes you the heppest indie kid on the block, while The Pixies makes you a poser?
Whose fault is it that I dig pop music?
