Ok…I just checked out the New release schedule HERE, and there’s nothing, NOTHING, that I want. Is this page accurate? Is there anything coming out today that isn’t on this page? Because that’s seriously disappointing. I mean, there are a few Dirty Three reissues. I have never listened to them, but I’ve always wanted to try them. But that’s it.

I dunno. I mean, maybe it’s too much to expect that something’s going to come out every week that I’m going to like. I just…I don’t feel like a music snob. Sure, I hate some bands that others like (such as Journey or AC/DC), but that’s not snobbery. I just don’t like the music.

I’m really not difficult to please. I listen to a lot of stuff that others find unpleasing to the ear (such as The Mountain Goats). I like stuff. I’m not a hater.

So, when I see that there’s nothing I’m interested in, it makes me think that a) the industry has let me down, or b) I haven’t heard of the awesome stuff that’s on that list, so I don’t know any better. Now, I know my finger isn’t firmly on the pulse of cool, but I like to think that I stay informed.

So yeah. Nothing on that list appeals to me. If anyone knows of a more complete New Release list, let me know.

I guess that’s all I have to say on the matter.

I’m going to say this as a thing. You basically like one kind of music, genre wise. Like in the time I’ve known you, you have shown and interest in indie rock and surf and recently a tentative interest in hip hop, but nothing else at all. You know, if that’s the way it is, that’s the way it is. I don’t know what you’re looking at for new releases. Maybe it’s time to get into another genre or dive deep in the the world of surf rock, or something.

I don’t think so, I think it means you’re boring.
