>>53345878 Being rude should be a filter to keep away some people but some anons are really mad. It's like the reddit mentality where everyone is nice to the point when it becomes insencere and unauthentic, but reversed
>>53345786 Because it has slowly become the opposite of what I'd expect to find on an "underground" music forum. More an more viral marketing goes on, pitchfork is basically what the whole board focuses on, general threads/containment threads are horrible and miscellaneous threads usually contain the same old albums/artists everyone already knows. If there was a place like /mu/ without everything I mentioned above then that would be heaven. It would give room for discovering so much more music. You know, like a more "punk" culture that rejects image and prejudice and focuses on the core of things rather than numbers/popularity.
>>53346916 kpop fans only have themselves to blame. their threads are 1% music and 99% whos cutest. mostly theyre just chatrooms for the kpoppers, thats why you were corralled into a containment thread in the first place
>>53345982 This It's always popular to talk about how /mu/ sucks, but I don't think it helps complaining. Sure, some posts are shitty, but literally everyone can post so it'll obviously happen. I personally like most of the discussions.
People don't actually care about music. Legitimately interesting artists who make original, genre-pushing, awesome music are off-handedly shunned by people who haven't taken the time to listen to them because repeating memes and in-jokes takes precedence over actual music discussions.
The ideal /mu/ would be a forum where people have different tastes and openly discuss them so that we can all share what we know and have some good discussion. The current /mu/ is a forum where everyone is out to cement the collective opinion on a particular band to match their own, no matter how many memes they have to flood threads with.
/mu/ has too many of the following >death grips circlejerk threads >shitty sharethreads >kpop threads >threads that are useless or talking about taste and 3X3 or 4X4 threads Recommending music is fine but lets be honest its a total circlejerk of who can have the most underground recs >Fantano and Pitchfork worship and spamming
If only the mods did something about this, but I have a feeling they are involved in these threads, or find it a cruel joke and just say "shut up fag".
Honestly I only come on here to make my own threads about discussion of BMSR and other groups I don't see discussed too much.
>>53349526 >If only the mods did something about this the mods and janitors arent here to mould /mu/ to your liking, they only enforce the rules. you might not like, say, 3x3 threads, but what rules are they breaking? none.
This is an excellent example of a good sharethread. >>>53339091
Variety of indie, underground, ambient, pop etc. Quality shares and descriptions.
>>53349573 This is true. For some reason part of me just wants some of that stuff to disappear because it is not always strictly music discussion, BUT at least they are discussing music more than just meme-ing and spamming.
>>53349623 Ok, you gotta be retarded anon. The amount of time I've seen Fantano's fucking face and Pitchfork worship of their ratings ironically or unironically is the most annoying shit ever. Fuck off you troll.
Before 2009-2010 this board was excellent. I discovered TONS of artists in all genres, posters were knowledgeable and memes were actually created.
I've been coming here about once in a blue moon those past few years, because this board is a catastrophe of hipster teens now, and here's what I witnessed: - Downright blood-boiling tripfagging and avatarfagging (the latter seems to have disappeared?), zero music discussion - Endless supply of 5x5, lastfm, ratemymusic etc egothreads, zero music discussion - Extremely stale sharethreads when there are any, music everyone knows in it, or an archive of obscure uninteresting crap copypasted by some kewl kid
Since the beginning of the present decade, I don't get why this board is still in the "creative" section of 4chan. The only creativity I see is little faggots finding ways to look cool and out-musical librarying their peers, with an endless stream of P4K hipster garbage.
Oh yeah did I mention when people were spouting AOTY in January? didn't visit here this year, dunno if that still happens.
Basically most users here are wannabe musical critiques, meaning, talentless turds who can only get some kind of self-worth by saying OMG THIS ALBUM IS SOOOOO GOOOD, which tries hard at hinting that they have such good taste, because they listen to such good music. Of course this self-validation exercise has to be repeated constantly, which invalidates reviews, since they're all dithyrambic
I haven't discovered exciting music here for years (granted, I don't visit much), thank God there's still Lastfm and Soulseek.
I wrote to Moot several times begging him to turn this board into forced anon and ban egothreads, but I guess he hates y'all even more than I do because he deliberately chose to let you wallow in your filth :^)
I want to leave, because being on the internet so much is unhealthy and I need to be a better student. I stay, because /mu/ has helped me appreciate many different kinds of music and has introduced me to bands I very well may have never found about otherwise. It isn't /mu/ persay it's just the internet in general that's fucking people over. /mu/, unlike a lot of other websites, can actually offer a broader horizon and new insights into music for people that don't know much about. That is, if you can wade through all the shitposting, memes, and awful opinions.
>>53349673 This board always will be 90% shit, 10% gold. I consistently visit and I always tell myself to leave, but then there is that one sharethread or that one Pavement thread that just convinces me to stay for some reason...
>>53346497 >no sense of community I think this is the main reason I consider leaving. I come because I can find stuff funny every now and then. But last month when every other thread was >jenny death when I wanted to leave.
No one here even plays instruments, no one even writes songs, barely anyone REALLY cares about music. All /mu/tants do consistently is bitch about the latest Anthony Fantano review or compete with each other to see who will come up with the newest, dankest /mu/ meme. This place is nothing more than an addicting time-killer for people who have nothing to do. You should all leave this website forever. You'll be thankful for it.
>>53346476 agree with this, also this post-ironic poptimism trend is a real cancer. i go on 4chan to talk to rejects like me about relatively obcure things i can't discuss with normie friends, if i wanted to talk about the new katy perry single i'd go to a bar and chat about top 40 shit while drinking a mojito or whatever the fuck plebs drink.
