Why is #4 lame? Isn't that the point?

I'm implying the cds I've purchased this year are unhip because I am unhip. I know that's hard for you to believe, but it's true.

I'm in a CD club, too.

My month is February.

I couldn't decide if I wanted to make of mix of stuff I'd want to hear, or make a mix of stuff I think the other people in the club would want to hear.

Then I thought about it, and, well, here's the thing:

Most people purchase stuff they want to hear for themselves. Wouldn't catering to their tendencies produce a bunch of, well, redundant stuff?

Fuck 'em.

Make a mix you'd want to listen to. If it includes "unhip" bands, well, who gives a shit? It's not like they had to pay anything to get the CD from you, and if they don't like it, well, they can choose not to listen to it again.

Besides, don't most of us spend enough time in high school pretending to be who we think other people want us to be? We're grown ups, now!

Trust me on this one: Unhip is the new cool.

For the record, I *heart* Coldplay. Even though he let her name their kid after a fucking piece of fruit, I still love 'em.

You're too young to be lame. Or, you're too lame to be young. It's sorta in the balance, isn't it? You'd better nail this. (j/k)

Do the Seattle band thing. It's still cool to live here, despite what they say.

What the hell is "hip," anyway? Are "hip" people the ones who only listen to music that hasn't been "discovered" yet and is only listened to by that select group of other "hip" people?

Well, to quote leespea, fuck 'em. I'd rather just listen to music because it's good. (Too bad you don't have any that fit that criterion either....)
