Ever feel like deleting all your music and just listening to well-curated playlists/mixes so you don't have to think about anything anymore?
Yes. I'm really obsessive about music for some reason. I think so much about the artists and albums and so on that it gets in the way of the music. I can only feel like I'm freely listening to music on the radio, but I can't do that too much because I get nervous because I don't know the artist... it's appealing to imagine giving it all up and just finding some awesome podcasts or radio stations.
Yeah. Anytime I hear a song I like anywhere, I HAVE to find out who it is so I can own it. And if I don't find out, I feel like something's missing from my life. It's stupid. I'd like to let go. I tried once before. But started collecting all over again.
Is anyone else's opinion on music now entirely molded by this board? I dont listen to any bands that I used to before I came here. I literally just listen to all the /mu/ core shit like deathgrips, velvet underground, mac demarco, mf doom, and neutral milk hotel. You guys think Im plebs now too. Where the fuck does it end.
It makes me nervous too, because I have to ask myself, "is it the music I care about or the idea of the music?" I don't care about having an image... I'm pretty sure I listen to music because I enjoy it... yet for some reason music seems very incomplete if it's music per se.
I hear ya. Maybe, though you don't care about the image your project, you're still creating an idea of yourself based on the music you collect. A personal image. And without having all your music to look through, all the albums and songs that have memories attached to them, you sort of forget who you are.
