Itt: Times you were given control of the music in a car, at a social gathering or at a party and what the results were
>Party at my friend's apartment
>Friend uses my spotify account
> I put Death Grips
>Drunk people dancing to Get Got
>The Fever comes on
>Drunk people get rowdy
>Lost Boys come on
>Drunk people smoke weed
>"put on road trip music"
>put on road trip music
>"this isn't road trip music"
>"yes it is road trip music"
>"no it's not road trip music"
>they unplug my road trip music
>"then what is road trip music"
>"i don't know... road trip music"
>"then put on some road trip music"
>they sift through itunes on their phone, sorted by song of course
>"this is road trip music"
>music from road trip scene of shitty teen movie
I make everyone that rides in my car listen to my music with mostly good results
I got a friend of mine who is like the stereotypical southern white girl to like Death Grips and Le1f so that was fun. Also got a friend to get really into Sufjan
Brought my sound system on holiday with my friends so I could change/choose the music to whatever.
Ended up playing Exmilitary all the way through twice to a bunch of 'top 40 or bust' type people, they enjoyed it a lot more than I expected to be honest.
>at new years party
>dance pop is playing
>get a hold of the music system
>penderecki's threnody for the victims of hiroshima
>people look confused
>"haha anon you're such a prankster you had us going haha good one dude"
>eat cereal and hope no one calls me
>new years party
>I put on Naomi Punk's "The Feeling" LP for good summery fun jams
>some girls comes up
>sorry but I'm going to change this shit
>she puts on fucking Slipknot
>all the disgusting neckbeard metalheads get into it
>I go into the kitchen and sit with the keg
If there's one thing a /mu/tant is good for it's supplying quality dance music to a party full of regularfags then sitting in the corner and watching everyone else have fun while you pray no one asks you where you found the music
>driving home just ordered Sirius radio
>turn on SiriusXMU (basically the Pitchfork Radio) in the car with GF
>it's playing Panda Bears new album
>WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT ANON CHANGE IT
>she switches it to hair nation.
>at a party
>friend says I can play something
>want to play vaporwave but I know it will probably be weird for me to do that
>just play macross instead

Now everytime I go to a party I end up playing a lot of future funk since it's perfect party music
>playing meme gribs at a social gathering ever
lmfao, never change kids
>invite friend over
>he asks if he can bring a guy from portland that's staying with him
>sure why not
>the guy stomps in wearing beats around his neck

>rips my player off the shelf, i have to catch it
>rips out cable
>plugs in ipod touch
>sorts through music, sorted by song of course
>puts on some rotten soudning edm artist called something like Xyggyrnawt or something
>me and my friend sit motionless looking deep into eachothers eyes while he leans against the shelf and bobs his ass up and down
I work in a kitchen and we have a music system that is pretty much always playing music. I often get control and can play whatever i want. Though, I usually try to play stuff everyone else will dig.
A lot of my co-workers (all ages 22-27) like to play metal and deathcore and some really heavy shit, and it gets pretty distracting. I'll sometimes just play something really out-there and interesting, but it's never in-your-face like the shit they play. although every once in a while I'll play death grips or some other "weird" /mu/core. it's funny seeing their reactions.
one time, i played the diana ross song from Floral Shoppe and walked away to get a drink. When i got back, the 3 guys in the kitchen were trippin out because of the slowed-down voice, telling me to change it to something fucking normal.

I don't understand why you guys can't understand what is acceptable in social gatherings/parties... obviously playing swans or captain beefheart isn't going to go down well
there is music that is enjoyable and also party music. mostly hip-hop but still
gorillaz, tame impala, lcd soundsystem, atmosphere, and kanye come to mind
>at brothers party
>he doesn't know what to play next
>asks me what I should play
>tell him to put on Death Grips - Runway H
>cringe because its a moshpit but I'm oddly satisfied.
everything went better than expected
>If there's one thing a /mu/tant is good for it's supplying quality dance music to a party full of regularfags then sitting in the corner and watching everyone else have fun while you pray no one asks you where you found the music
How do you know me?

>he plays prepared guitar while she reads poetry and holds an ipad over her face
>music comes to harsh noise climax and i start breaking things and making noise as instructed
>other friend comes into the middle of the crowd and starts playing extremely loud free jazz on his saxophone while wearing a big black wig
>pray no one asks you where you found the music
>display something you like
>afraid to talk about it
do you see how this is stupid? i mean even if you want to keep your club secret you could just lie.
seconds in she says "this song makes me scared" and she gets pouty
I don't know your band but... How can someone be scared from this?
Reading your story i was expecting some medium-weird music from a mu/tant/ whose sense of normallity is altered.
But... that's just catchy... and esaily enjoyable.
I don't understand
How does it make you feel to know I got these from Reddit /r/blackpeopletwitter
>years ago in high school
>going to a party with people i hardly know

>night goes on, have a boombox
>oh no we dont have any cds
>put it in and press play
>"this is good music man!" this guy i know says
>at one point i remember there's the natural break of the song where it beeps and everyone froze, and a girl said "Im scared" and then the next song came on and everyone kept going again
>next day i left, just left the cd cause i didnt want it
In a night that was kind of weird, that part was kind of cool.

You don't get to see the vanguard account numbers son, you ain't ready
Started a freight forwarding and customs brokerage firm with my brothers that took off, sold rights to facilities and systems to bigger international freight companies with a buyout for those lots and sales percentage in perpetuity, now do consulting work with British and Chinese firms looking to get their shit moved around Europe, Asia and the US quicker and with less thieving
I could but i won't
Stay mad while you take people's fast food orders or lift heavy things for a single digit hourly rate for the rest of your life chump
Because we're quantifiably more successful than most people on the planet and in a market economy (I.e. every city on earth that matters) being financially successful is the ultimate end game.
It makes us cocky. It would make you cocky too.
>quantifiably more successful
>ultimate end game
keep deceiving yourself, elliot rodger. you're a fucking joke.
all that money and you've learned nothing about being a respectable human being. excessive wealth only makes morons think they've somehow got it all figured out.
>Hey anon, my iPod broke. Can you fetch me some music for this thing tonight?

>she was a pleb all along
This is the kind of post where I laugh but then I realize that if a regular person tried to understand it I'd need to explain /mu/ historical meme imperatives and board culture and I'd get so embarrassed I'd kill myself
This is that real 4chan shit
You guys are fags , unless the people I'm with listen to exclusively EDM and Top 40 Pop , I will always will find something that people will like , its really not that hard you just need to think what will be very accessible and uplifting .
With my close group of friends , I'm in control of music 80% of the time .
I always used to put on The Money Store at my friends old apartment when he had parties. No one said anything about it but they didn't seem to mind. People were putting on trap so I thought I'd step it up a notch.
