holy shit it is literally impossible to escape being called either a contrarian or a drone
drones and contrarians are mostly teens on reddit and avid readers of conde nast owned sites. if you are here it's because you want to find new music outside of the /mu/ essentials and rym lists. i like that you can get wildly random recs if you stumble upon a great thread.
i disagree. you have to be an absolute retard to be either of those things. only a small, maybe vocal minority are like that on mu. most have their own taste and they like what they like.
the thing is that a lot of people that come on here are really similar. they are the average looking guy that never got a lot of female attention, a bit introverted, not a lot of confidence but really self-centered and self-important, pseudo-intelligent, a couple of good friends, one or two really fucked up child-hood traumas, dissapointing relationships with parents, girlfriend, whatever...
it's natural that a lot of us like and dislike the same things. i believe that it's genuine and not 'droning' or 'contrariarism'.
I've found that if you slip a little /mu/core into your charts while putting "you own taste" on it by adding album art that looks patrician, they tolerate you here.
Nobody knows I'm a Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert fan, OP.
> holy shit it is literally impossible to escape being called either a contrarian or a drone
Nah, people just overuse these words when they have a different taste than yours, it's not worth paying attention to.
Is this really what you fuckers do? Is this why I see the same albums in every fucking thread?
Guys it's ANONYMOUS, nobody is "tolerating" you, you can't get like excommunicated for posting an album /mu/ doesn't like and your credibility is forever tarnished etc
If you can't enjoy what you listen to because you're uncomfortable about what other people may think: you're probably listening to shitty music that you have no strong feelings on. You have to be able to be confident.
On the other hand, this is an anonymous Eurasian pictograph board. Don't take shit personally.
In a way - nothing on my charts is stuff I don't love, but I make sure to not show any plebcore.
Unless of course we did a plebcore thread, but those never happen - /mu/ is for giving love to artists that get no love from anyone else, after all.
i don't even get on what basis people rate and hate
one day a song might sound like shit, the next it just clicks. musical opinions are constantly in flux and yet people will defend their 3x3 AOTY chart like it's some hotly disputed border between warring nations
i think its best to avoid numerical rankings and just try to talk about your reactions, parts of the song that work for you and what doesn't, etc
I've got plebshit on my charts, who cares. They're my favourites and no amount of neckbeard superiority will change that.
You sound like a giant pussy. Probably the reason you like shit music too.
Can't you see how desperate and pathetic it seems to actually spend the time to make a chart that doesn't even reflect your actual taste but is just designed to "fit in" with some perceived opinion regime? Have I mentioned that it's anonymous?
Maybe /mu/ is different now that m00t's gone, then - what you consider weakness was actually tactics. Back in the day, too much pleb in the chart could get you banned for "off-topic trolling". If you wanted to keep posting, you had to toe a line.
This is like, "rudiments of the internet"-tier knowledge. A lot of people come here to talk shit, they can't assert themselves in person and there is nothing here to make you stand by your word, so it's a comfy environment for would-be bullies
calling someon a contrarian here is saying that everyone's musical worldview is narrowed by this place (and p4k too) and that's simply untrue and frankly indicative of autism and being a fucking tool
>/mu/ is one person
even if this were true, it still doesn't make sense
>you there at IP x.x.x.x, we notice you have not posted your AOTY chart yet, please post it so that we can make sure you are allowed to keep posting
if you can't post your real opinions, you will post fake opinions so that you will be allowed to post more fake opinions in the future?
