All I got on my phone is Hard Rock, Metal, Prog, and some cheesy soft rock like Chicago or Genesis.
Unless they were into that when I tell them it, then I just wouldn't lend my phone out.
The vidya music I keep on my PC, with maybe a few orchestral mixes in my phone.
It ain't cool, but I don't give a shit.
(Chicago is awesome shit no lie)

Nah, never really have moments where my power level is even relevant to bring up.
When I'm with friends they're just as bad, if not worse if you consider their anime obsession. When I talk to normal people and vidya comes up I just casually roll with the conversation. Makes no sense to sperg out when people are just saying shit like, "Skyrim is pretty neat." I mean sure, I can disagree, but I just say it wasn't my favorite and I prefer the older stuff. Pretty simple.
Only time I ever was a little stupid with it was when I was at this one store near my apartment.
>Store called Geekery
>Typical shit, lots of table top and card games
>Roommate gets me to come out to the store, we check out one group playing some kind of D&D thing
>Listen in, DM basically says the world is that of Skyrim

Fucking really? I mean shit, even if they find out what you listen to who cares? People have weird taste in music.
It's hard to criticize someone's taste in music when there are so many weird fucking genres out there.
>tfw you go out in video game tshirts, have a video game keychain, use anime sleeves for your cardgames, and play your 3DS in public
I don't give a fuck.
>Hiding your powerlevel
What are you hiding, MEN?
Are you afraid of hippies and commies who critisize manly things!? MAN UP, SISSY!
>at bus stop because poor fag
>2 high schoolers/early college fags talking about Naruto, then One Piece, then to talking about fapping to ponies

I am extremely insecure about my music choices since most of them are anime OSTs and video game OSTs
that being said, when someone is curious what I listen to, I just say

>answer honestly because I am not ashamed of my tastes
I'm good looking, have a great body and I dress well, because of those things I don't even need to hide my power level. Told a girl who was interested in me, that instead of going drinking I'm staying home watching anime and playing video games, she just thought that it was cute. I get that kind of reactions everytime I "reveal" my power level.
In a way it's disgusting as fuck. If I was a neckbeard loner people would look at me with disgust on their faces if I were to reveal my power level.
>hanging out with normie friends, driving around countryside

No fucking way?
I'm not socially retarded, of course she doesn't find it cute. My native tongue isn't english, so the conversation was a little bit different.
And no, I'm not in the friendzone, I know when I'm in one.
Well, my music library is fucked up and all i have is Pink Floyd, Flower Kings, Iron Savior, David Bowie, Christopher Lee, Sword and King Crimson. Let's see, if /v/ can recommend some good music for such a pleb as me.
What are you listening to right now /v/?
Das Weisse Licht by Oomph! here. That chorus is great.
>at a house party
>"anon it's your turn to play music"
>put on some mortaur
>everybody gives me weird looks
>music is bad once it reaches a certain age
You avoided unimportant conflict with those girls when you could have the autist enjoy one crash bandicoot song and tell the hoes that you are in charge, you're the one deciding and that they can suck your cock if they please.
If you just listen to playlists like 99% of these problems don't arise.
I don't know how anyone with varied taste can enjoy shuffle modes anyway.
Modest Mouse, a lot of soundtracks, Death Cab for Cutie, occasional Radiohead / Pink Floyd / Nirvana.
Come to think of it, most of what I listen to are soundtracks. I'm listening to a soundtrack right now, even as I type this,
>16, still in school
>on the bus on the way to school
>one guy in the class below me borrows my iPod to play games
>he starts looking through it
>finds my playlist of
my little pony season 1

>try and damage control
>almost convince them to give it a chance
>they choose one of them
>it autostarts in the middle of
a song about wapping up winter
>zero chance of recovery
>they tell people at school
at least it was near the end of the year and it al blew over, they still brought it up a few times over the rest of school but I learnt a valuable lesson of not trying to justify things that day, once I stopped trying to defend it they stopped saying anything
> if music is old, it's shit

No seas ese tipo de adolescente maricon que abunda en facebook añon.
LOL OP. Why the fuck didn't you just grab your iPod and make a quick mix of non embarrassing shit? This story is funny as fuck though.
Next time try owning it though. Be like, "fuck you listen to vidya music! Shit's cash. deal with it bitches."
I have the metal gear rising and madworld OSTs on my phone and listen to them while lifting. Video game music is god-tier for working out. No fucks given.
>tfw exploding out of the hole and getting a squat PR just as RULES OF NATURE!!! plays
Because they're wrapped up in a social ecology that reinforces these ideas, and them emulate them to maintain a sense of identity, place, and belonging with the group.
They're just young and don't know better.
Why the fuck are you all posting what kind of music you listen to. Nobody gives a shit. I thought this board was about video games, but the one day I decide to come back to see how things are, this is what I'm greeted with.
Fucking hell /v/, this place has gone to shit.

She doesn't get mad when I call her cute any more, but damn did that situation knock me off balance. Like what the fuck even, how did women manage to completely redefine a word like that?

She's a fucking bro, and I seem to have accidentally made her a weeb as well as given her tons of gaems to play simply by the soundtrack. The second she heard the U.N. Squadron and 2hu music, she started to play them and loved the shit out of them.
Thank you kind sir, I tip my hat off to you.
Electric Wizards latest album. pretty rad
This isn't so bad, and it was several years back, but some peddler from Agrabah was selling some gadgets at the mall. He had a wagon, not an actual store. It had all kinds of neon light clocks, watches, sunglasses, disco lights... and a TV with some boot leg emulator box hooked up and the controller out. Super Mario Bros was on the screen. I fucking love Super Mario Bros.
So I waited for some young uns to get frustrated with the first level and put the controller down, and then I speed through the first two levels with those kids watching in awe, and I'm just about to go down the warp zone to world 4 when Jafar takes the controller away and gives me the dirtiest look, unplugs the controller and goes to sit back at his cash register without a word.
What the fuck was his damage, I wasn't even playing for three minutes

THIS WHOLE THREAD... it's almost like i am on YouTube
/v/ - normalfag general
Dip drop your scrotum down into the mouth of this unpeaceful dead corpse
Dip sack shrivels up, dried cold saliva, teabag the dead
From this dead sibling
That I have just killed
For my teabagging
It feels grand
Dip drop your scrotum down into the mouth of this unpeaceful dead corpse
Dip sack shrivels up, dried cold saliva, teabag the dead
My hand on cock
Balls in its mouth
Start to beat off
Ready to cum on her dead face
Blood pumps into my rod with enthusiasm, exciting me
Body tenses up I feel the urge to splooge on her forehead
Erupting thick beads of babies on her sinking face
Dead teeth scrape my balls, best feeling ever while getting off
Kind of feel guilty, for this obscene action I've done
Wouldn't have happened, if I wasn't horny off the family portrait
fuck is up with this song?
It wasn't that it was just j-pop, there's anime intro/outro's, tons of vidya music, and some stuff that comes out of left field that makes it all incredibly embarrassing to show to others. Especially the vidya music since thats basically 70% of whats on my iPod.

I've got my ipod on shuffle. maybe its lazyness but mostly I don't want to memorize albums. keeping it random lets me hear songs I haven't heard in a while. Though I suspect random isn't that random since I hear way too many of the same songs usually.

If you're just starting to get into the genre listen to "Godspeed You! Black Emperor", "A Silver mt. Zion", "Sigur Ros" and "Swans" ("Soundtracks for the Blind" and "To Be kind").
Lately I've been getting into "MONO" (nippon post rock), "Kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi" and "Язык дождя".
Is it weird that I don't actively listen to music? I mean if I hear something I like I might look it up later but most of the time everything I listen to is just stuff I've heard from somewhere else or I hear it on the radio when I'm driving.
It's weekend. All pathetic normalfags are here, showing off how 'le nerdy XDDD' they are, after getting wasted on friday.
>plug in iPod

>get compliments all night long on my superior taste
Who the fuck listens to shitty video game music?
Because better is a subjective idea born of perspective, and there are any number of reasons someone listens to any given thing at any given time. The spectrum is large, but not infinite, and I am simply placed at a different point than you at most intervals.
I listen to non-game music as well.
Have a playlist of them, maybe that would have been a better example
Like I said, I really don't know how to describe it. Other artists I like include Philter, kodomo and kettel but they're kind of a spectrum between ambient and electronica
People don't actually go into those stores, do they?
You fucking faggots you can import that shit yourself at half the price those long-haired asian qt3.14 NEETs are asking for.
i dunno, i get a core number of bands and i'll listen to their collections individually for a while. then i'll remember a different band and put that into rotation.
sometimes i'll switch it up and just jump around my whole collection. mostly when i want to listen to singles (when i don't really care for the band/artist)
Listening to music on a smart phone drastically reduces the already short autonomy. I listen to music more or less 8 hours a day on my sansa clip and I'm still reachable at the end of the day.
Music that can be classified as "Dadrock" isn't necessarily bad. What's terrible is the mindset of people who believe that circa '70s era rock music is the only type of music in the history of civilization that is worthy of being both called great and listened to and who are obsessed with the electric guitar to the neglect of all other instruments.
It's likely you're satisfied with your average mood, or the mental channels you find yourself going down typically.
Music to me is a mood modifier, and changes the experience of self as well as my capacities. I don't really need these proxies, but they certainly help and are more natural than brute forcing your internal state to be what you want it.
Music also allows you to discover new lenses to view the world from, and even shows a bit about yourself sometimes.

I know that feel bro
The worst part is that most kids who listen to Dadrock only listen to the most popular bands of their times and think they're hot shit.
I haven't left the house to hang out with friends in so long I seriously can't remember. It's not all that bad. I have 3 really good internet friends and it's all I need. Sometimes I get a little down but it's whatever. Can't fix it now, so why get upset over shit you can't fix?
it's really hard for me to listen to the Hotline Miami OST anymore.
i was always high when I would listen to it, so now that i'm clean it just brings back flashbacks. The first time Deep Cover popped into my head, i had a massive stomach drop and was fiending for a couple minutes.

It's like metal with vocal harmonies and sometimes some eurobeat thrown in
nah nigga, telefon tel aviv and Aphex twin aint ambient. I hate using the term IDM, but it fits in this case. Perhaps early telefon tel aviv, like a map of what is effortless, but not their newer stuff.

>tfw go to an old school friend's party

Aphex Twin is ambient if you're talking about selected ambient works, a lot of his underground stuff, and even a lot of the songs on his regular albums.
Same with Telefon Tel Aviv, but I'd consider them more glitch than IDM.
>tfw you're a highly social person but have no social outlets
Closet thing is that many years ago I told a friend I told a friend I was turned on by Pokemon.
He didn't really care.
Later on he turned into a furry himself.
>mfw I blog to steam friends I pick up from /v/
It keeps me sane but it's a horrible existence.
Well, Aphex twin is up for discussion as his ambient albums are, well, ambient.
Aphex twin is hard to put a genre on, because it varies so much, but I'd say IDM/Acid Techno/Glitch
To be fair, that manlet sounds like an asshole. The proper action would have been to smash his ass, remain completely humble and let someone else play so you look like the bigger man.
There's nothing wrong with dadrock. The problem is the people who listen to dadrock exclusively and dismiss new music as having less value or talent without ever making any vested effort to find music outside of what's popular.
When did /v/ become normalfag central?
This board is disgusting.
The real fun begins when the entire party gets in on it and you are left with 4 bards and a roadie dwarf.
The Gm now demands to see the character sheet before the session starts.
Saw them live with Skeletonwitch a while back. They put on a hell of a show.
I haven't really listened to them too much, I just heard a few songs and it wasn't my thing. Same thing happened to Silversun Pickups for me.
