Post about how you're sitting in your room listening to music on thirsty thursday itt.
>tfw no one listens to your college radio station
>tfw no one will ever walk up to you and go "hey, you're the guy with that radio show! I love the music you play!"
>tfw no one will ever remember you
And remember friends, as always, keep it music related.
No one wants to feel tonight? I guess I can post another
>tfw not sure why she's mad at me
>tfw I'd tell her I'm sorry and fix it if I only knew what she was upset about
>tfw can't go to radio staff meetings without seeing her
Hey man, chin up.
I hosted a show in high school and met a qt years down the line who knew and liked my show, but I guess
>tfw we live in different cities and she's all I think about
>tfw no irl friends that like noise music
>tfw no irl friends that like any kind of "fringe" music like that at all
>even ambient is too weird to anyone who hears it
you seem really attached to your station. I dont advise you to do anything on air for her, cause that can only end in lots of spaghetti :P
let things calm down with her. idk, im not very good with women
I don't try to do anything on air for her, and I'm pretty sure she stopped listening to my show anyway.
I'm trying to let things calm down; I've stopped texting and talking to her, but I still see her all the time and it sucks.
Listening to The Microphones/Mount Eerie, thank god Phil puts out so much stuff, he's a great man. I might buy some merch or a record from him later.
>tfw I want to talk to her but I don't know what to even say
and I have no clue what she thinks of me
I know what you mean, my friends think that Spiritualized and The Velvet Underground is weird when I showed it to them, and laughed at me for listening to it.
My college radio station just plays Indie Pop and shitty, safe, local Indie Pop bands. It's a big gay clique I don't want to be a part of. They all just listen to Brand New and bands that rip them off. It's lame
She's my ex, now. I still like her, but I'm trying not to think of her like that.
That sucks, yo. Most of the people at my station are really chill and welcoming, but there are a few shitheads like that.
Yikes, I know exactly how that feels. But think of it like this- if she likes you she won't mind you starting a conversation out of nowhere about nothing. If she doesn't like you, then it doesn't matter what you say anyway.
I've been to other college radio stations and yeah, mine has the worst bias and the tightest cliques. I host house shows with all genres in the same town and it goes over well though. So Im not worried about those shitheads
Drinking a couple 25floz bud lights my roomie left before he left to visit family, watching recorded new south park and probably gonna cry myself to sleep while listening to The Power of Failing.
>tfw your best friend rejected you after 4 years of being in love with her
>tfw she goes back and forth from hating you to wanting to spend every second with you
She broke my heart and can't stop stepping on it but I love her and the only oher girls that are into me are underage.
If there girls, plural, into you, I think that it's likely that at least one isn't underage, you just don't know she's into you. Find her, and hopefully she'll be better than this flake you're dealing with.
OP college radio is the heart of new music. People listen, they're just too awkward to call. I'm an indie musician, and all about networking with DJs. How would I submit my music to you?
>tfw lame as hell because you underachieve cause you are lazy
>tfw find a new favorite album long time ago
>don't listen to it often because I want to save it for "special occasions" since I liked it so much
>sort of conditioned myself to never listen to it
>now it just feels weird and wrong to listen to it ever
>I maybe listen to it once every few months, when I force myself to, even though it's one of my favorites
How do I get out of this? It sounds like I'm making myself listen to music I don't like but I really do like it. Fuck.
Aw man OP I did a radio show in college too. I used to do a call-in contest and nobody ever called-in.
Colors by Between the Buried and Me.
It's not my favorite album ever (although it used to be) but I like it a lot and I just can't listen to it because I somehow conditioned myself not to
> mfw when you get angry over being called a faggot and tell me to suck your cock
> tfw I've spent all evening looking through artists with 0 Spotify plays
I need a new hobby.
>tfw want to put the moves on a qt that works at a convenience store that i stop at every morning
>have no idea how to approach the situation
>hate the idea of being hit on/hitting on someone at work
>my mom just started working there
talk about figuratively shitting where i literally eat
I just play stuff I like. If you've got a bandcamp or something I'll give you a listen, and if it's downloadable (and clean) then it's playable.
Or you could email/send your stuff to me or the station, and the music director (a friend of mine) will decide whether to put it in rotation.
Yeah, no one ever calls me either except record labels looking for the music director.
just post incessantly about her on the craigslist "missed connections" section. you'll feel better and there's excitement that word might get back to her!
Also hopefully your mom can do some recon about the little crumpet, and maybe hook you up with siqq slushie discounts.
This is me! If you dig what you hear, I can get you versions with radio edits.
Thanks for being a not corporate DJ dude!
I promise heads are listening.
i think i scare all the girls away with my music because im a sperglord who's passionate about his interests. either they love or get turned off by that passion. plus it doesn't help that im about a 4/10
>Yeah, no one ever calls me either except record labels looking for the music director.
Fuck I never got that. The only calls I would get were Fisher kids pranking me. (they're a nearby college who had a building adjacent to the radio station). Scamps.
i guess missed connections isn't that far a step off from posting about it here. and i already asked about her, awaiting further developments. hopefully, i can just catch her on a smoke break.
What's the most listeners you've had on your meaningless college show, thread?
My record for the current semester is 8. Literally just friends and family. I'm trying to break the campus record but it doesn't seem like it's happening at the moment.
This is pretty cool, man. Doesn't really fit with the theme of my show, but I'll talk to the music director. Maybe we can sneak you into the local category?
Don't go through the effort of making radio edits yet though, I'm not sure if he'll say yes.
Email's in the field if you want to follow up on this.
Well you have my best wishes and full encouragement anon. I know I cannot offer material support for this endeavour, but what I lack in quantity I make-up for in quality.
>tfw so much work at uni
>tfw mentally exhausted
>tfw alcohol fueled gathering for people in my year and major soon
>tfw literally the only qt in my major isn't invited
>tfw non-stem majors think their majors are hard
>start talking to qt singer
>i thought she was a bit boring at first
>likes the stooges as much as me
>likes siouxsie and the banshees as much as me
>still don't care really i guess
>she asks me to help her write some stuff
>talking about music to me
>fall in love
>start flirting with her and implying i'm interested
>she seems really unresponsive with texts but in person she's always really happy to see me and flirts back
>i am so scared of fucking up
>whatever she probably isn't interested anyway
i'm listening to prince right now but that's unimportant
this is bothering me so much that i can't even go back to writing weird gothy shoe gaze songs about weird dream stuff, what do i do about these feels guys
Thanks dude! Yeah definitely. Radio edits are already made, it's just a matter of sharing them if you guys are interested.
Where's the email?
I thank you anon. I won't be on the air for a while because of a break. Also I'm afraid of plugging a show in a thread because advertising rules on 4chun
What are your shows like?
You're looking at this all wrong anon. It's a race to make the other person feel disregarded and like shit afterward. Men aren't good at a lot of things but we excel in this area.
You need to make sure SHE'S the one YOU don't care about before she has a chance to turn the tables on you, nay, on mankind itself.
What's even worse than not having experienced love is knowing they're having that same connection and experience that they had with you with someone else now.
All of the love you made, all of that time and fun you shared, all with a different person, and she doesn't even care.
I wish I never fell in love. I wish I never met her.
Oh yeah, definitely. But don't let that discourage you. Most girls will still care at least a little even after it's over, and that's fine.
It's the ones who drop you and immediately pretend you never existed that you have to watch out for
>Thinking women can feel love
I do an experimental noise/ambient show and an internet electronic show with lots of trap/beats/jersey club etc. Here's the link for the second one:
It's easy to get deceived like I did, Anonymous. I'm just warning any virgins and girlfriend-less Anons out there.
Don't do it. Don't let them fall in love with you, and don't let yourself fall in love with them.
I haven't talked to a girl in 8 years. I'm crippled by this shit and I want to go back and time and make sure it never happened. I'm too afraid to kill myself, but if I found the courage I would do it in an instant.
>Don't let them fall in love with you
>Implying women love people and not status/power/wealth
Wait, for real? There are girls who will let you fuck them in their vagina but will then pretend it never happened and that your invisible? Why?
You already know the solution, anon...
>tfw you just wanted to get drunk for the first time in a month and go to sleep
>tfw you wound up puking everywhere and can't sleep
>tfw listening to bluegrass and hoping it calms you down and sends you into blissful slumber
>TFW friend you get drugs off of lost the one contact he had for real LSD
>TFW doomed to trip on NBomes forever
Still a lot of fun, but the real thing sounds so much better.
Also the girl I'm trying to get over keep hanging around me and it sucks because I don't want to think about her at all.
Ask her to go with you to the party, ya dingus!
Worst that happens is you two have a beautiful life together and she dies first.
>Make a female friend in early teens, she's a few years younger
>holy shit, she might be the real deal
>grow close to this wonderful human for years
>she falls for me
>I date this beautiful, talented diamond in the rough
>Grow up together, believing in and mentoring her
>help her find herself, she finally realizes she's something exceptional
>Travel the world together
>help her produce her album together
>spend blissful few years this way
>Teach her the last of what I have, knowing she'll surpass me any day
>She starts getting more distant as I have less and less to give her
>she's moving fast
> she's going places I can't
>Finally cheats on me during a trip
>I used that as an excuse cut my dead weight out of her life
>take my place in her audience
I made the perfect woman to wreck me, and I knew it from the beginning.
We're still close years later but I know the feelings she had are gone, and the feelings I have won't leave.
feelthread veteran here
I finally did it guys, I got a gf
she is really sweet and receptive to getting into everything I like
we've watched the Evangelion rebuild movies together and tomorrow night we're seeing Deafheaven together
don't give up, it can happen
>tfw I cried to an Onkyo album
Pretty sure I have legitimate mental issues
I thought I finally met a good one.
>Met a girl a few weeks ago
>Beautiful girl with purple hair, kind of eccentric personality
>Started talking about music one day
>"Oh yeah, I like old melodic metal and really alternative stuff like Imagine Dragons."
She meant that.
I was so close.
>girl I've seen around and had some classes with for two years
>never really thought much of her
>have a small bout this year where we talk more regularly (mostly small talk but ya know)
>get to know her better
>music taste is on point, plays classical guitar and has a beautiful voice
>fuck me I think I really like this girl
>a few weeks pass
>start talking to each other less frequently
>honestly not sure how to start a substantial conversation with her without it feeling forced (at least to me, who knows maybe I'm just fucking stupid lol)
>know there are several other guys she knows with much more to offer than I have
>come summer of 2015 I'll probably never see her again
I've come to terms with the fact that it is what it is but it still hurts to know that there's a small chance and I don't have the balls to seize the opportunity and find out.
>tfw college holidays
>did pretty bad in one exam, really scared about failing it
>no bros to hang with
>really need to find a job
I suppose it's good in the sense i can just focus on my gym and my music. It's also a good oppurtunity for me to save a lot of money right guys? ;_;
Fuck i'm lonely
>you're stressing small stuff
go out and make it happen but be confident in yourself and that you can be ok without her or you'll force it and come off as pushy.
>it all starts with confidence in who you are
>tfw done university
>paranoid about being fired but i'm really good at my job
>in a new city for a year with no friends
>wasting away my nights and weekends in the theoretical prime of my life
>feel really fucking weird deliberately trying to meet people
>no gf ever
bad, bad, bad feels
i know bro, i know. They always say "uni years are the best years of your life", but mine have been shit. I've sat at my desk all day on my computer for the past week, it hasn't felt great at all
>get worst haircut of my life
>girlfriend wanted me to get a hat
>looking like shit compared to 3 months ago
>skipping school cause I feel like shit
>starving myself and listening to deathconsciousness
>that feel when listening to the film remained the same for the first time and hearing that apology for bullying the kid made me cry because i picked on someone to fit in in my high school days
I'm truely sorry brah ;_;
I get rock hard when making out is there something wrong with me?
ive sorta developed a crush on this girl i met at a local music festival
i've been listening to a bunch of shoegaze and stoner metal,
earlier today i nodded off and imagined that i could feel her shoulder on my cheek as i held her, but then i snapped out of it and realized that i was alone.
i just want to sit with her in a park and get drunk together
yeah but I'm was just rolling around in bed making out with my friend the other day and my dick is just poking her in the thigh. It didn't seem to bother her but christ my body was just too ready to fuck.
>tfw no friends
>tfw the only people that call/text me are lab partners needing help with homework
>tfw these are supposed to be the best years of my life and I'm spending them alone in my room listening to Mount Eerie and studying.
>tfw I've spent most of my time listening and writing soulless prog wank
>tfw I just want to write interesting punk songs
this is literally the first time something like that has happened to me. Still far from normal
not sure, really, it was just a little unpleasant because my body was on edge for like 3 hours
Well, shit happens man. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Normie has been a thing on /r9k/ for a while iirc, so maybe it's making the jump? Idk, normalfag is always going to be what I call it.
>tfw you get rejected by your concert buddy
>tfw nobody to go record shopping with
>tfw you fuck things up between the two of you
>tfw you finally get over her and even though you're glad for a little bit you now feel a little empty because you have no one to imagine yourself with now
>tfw no concert buddy ever
>tfw no one to talk about music with in real life
I doubt you're still here, but start asking artists you like for interviews. People might start listening to your show because of it, and even if they don't you get to ask an artist you like questions. It's a win-win situation
>tfw no mutants to hang out with in philly
>tfw even if I could hang out with them I'd be too depressed
Of course I'm still here, I've got nothing better to do.
That actually was suggested to me today by the faculty director. But my school is in the middle of nowhere, so aside from a couple local acts, there's not really anyone to interview.
And I have a crush on one of the more prominent musicians in the scene, so I can't interview her or her band without dropping my spaghetti everywhere
Just interview any artist you like over the phone. I interviewed the keyboardist of Ought while they were on tour, and I set up an interview today with Daniel Chavis of The Veldt, and they sure as fuck aren't playing near me anytime soon.
Just make sure not to punch above your weight. Don't go messaging James Murphy asking for an interview expecting for much. Or do, worst thing that could happen is he ignores you and that's not that bad
tfw fell in love with my concert buddy too
tfw she was flirtatious as fuck and I was getting mixed signals
tfw she was holding out for somebody else who rejected her for a third time
tfw still talk with her and not sure if she's changed her mind.
She lives in my dorm on the same floor as me, which is pretty awkward. I feel like I think about her a lot, but it's more like she's become the idea of a new start, seeing as she was the first girl I was seriously interested in after coming to college.
we live across the ocean from one another. We both studied in France together and went to a lot of shows. I never thought I'd find a qt with a non-repulsive personality to go to a drone show with me.
But I know that feel anon. This one girl I met in a different program abroad in high school ended up being in the same student building as me in college. I knew she was really into me before but I was very depressed at the time and had large defenses up. In college I noticed that I had missed an opportunity and was still sort of depressed and couldn't get it together and even hang out with her. She lived four floors up from me and we talked on the two occasions we were in the same elevator.
I'm not OP, but I volunteer at a campus radio station as well. I host one of the new music slots, so I have to play stuff that gets sent in most of the time. You would not believe how much garbage acoustic indie cutesy stuff there is out there.
Damn man, that's really good stuff. Mind if I play one of your tracks on my show as well?
>tfw after months of being incapable of enjoying music becaus eof clinical depression this is the first thing that gets throught to me and I manage to enjoy it
If you know anything similar please post it
>TFW think I lost the few friends I had left
>don't feel anything at all
>they probably hated me for a while anyway probably did them a favor getting rid of me
>don't think I was ever a shitty person to anyone
>feel like people just looovee to see me fail
no anon, don't think like that. That's the worst thing you can do as a musician. I used to think I'd never be able to play guitar, or write lyrics, or anything like that. But I got a guitar, and very slowly learned how to play it. It just takes time.
>tfw i'm depressed and barely get out of bed every day
>tfw one close friend and no gf
>tfw people tell me I look tired every day and it gets annoying as fuck
>tfw literally no goals or achievements
