OH wrote:I'm similar to Goat Boy, but I'd like to ask you all a question that I think is related: how often do people ask you about music anyway? It might be because I live abroad and I'm usually around students or expats who I like but rarely have much in common with, but nobody ever asks what I'm in to. It's just something that doesn't seem to come up.
I always walk into work or where I'm studying with my headphones on (or I'm just taking them off) and NOT ONCE has anyone asked me 'what are you listening to?'. Really, not once. And I always ask others that same question. It puzzles me and it annoys me sometimes. Maybe they just don't want to be bored by the answer
A lass asked me at work the other week but it is rare. When I was on the operating table the other day the wifie asked me what kind of music I was into and we ended up talking about Genesis whilst I was being cut open! Her favourite album was Lamb. She also asked me what acid house for some reason was and I tried to explain it to her. It was kind of an odd conversation to be having at that moment but I liked that.
The thing is even people who like music don't necessarily like talking about it and many people are reticent about offering particularly strong opinions about all kinds of things, let alone something as personal as music. It's frustrating but pretty common in my experience. It's why I ended up on Mojo all those years ago
