I've recently leaped from the ramparts of the highest towers of the fortress of Hip-Hop, over the city walls, and gone a long journey through the wide open deep plains of Rock and it's many many sub-genres.
It's been an amazing experience broadening my tastes and watching huge prejudices I had evaporate once I let my mind remain as open as my ears. I respect things I never thought i would.
And seemingly strangest of all is that I now know when I return to my house in Hip-Hop city that I will appreciate and enjoy Hip-Hop even more now.
And I'm getting a summer home in the rock plains for sure now.
Confronting my preconceptions has made me really wonder at why people when it comes music almost more then any other art form....put up huge walls between them and other genres and act so hateful and disrespectful toward other genres and sub-genres. Why they refuse to really go out and explore and instead dig into their trenches.
So be honest and answer the poll regardless of whether you know your feelings are irrational or unfair. Just answer honestly.
Don't answer if you don't honestly hate any of the poll options please.
So then discuss why you may feel as you do, and why you might contrast it with the ones you like most.
And some of the rest of us can explain why we feel the worth in the genres others shun.
Unusual for me....let's keep this civil as possible. I don't like getting pissy about music (unless someone else brings the pissy first). The only exception will be Nerdcore, which will get all the abuse it deserves and more.
Let's use this to just think about it and share thoughts.
