Dude what are you talking about with all this hype? Darr and I were discussing why it's so important that everyone puts labels on hip hop artists as the best of all time and asking for justifications over why it's so important. The Gaslight thing was messing around, which is why I thought it was so weird that you brought it up. I honestly had to sit there and think about what you were quoting because it was such a sidebar post that I was making. I believe I was procrastinating a paper that night.
I'll gladly have an intelligent discussion with anyone on the site if the topic strikes my fancy. I'm sure I've had intelligent conversations with most of the people on the site, including you and sophos and phaynes. Maybe not phaynes.

As I've said, I mostly criticize you or sophos when I'm a particularly feisty mood because I know how riled up you both get. I'm a proponent of liking what you like. I make vague insults because I truly do not care about what people like. If you asked me why I was making fun of death grips instead of getting mad, I wouldn't have a reason other than it was funny to me. Just like how Mal and Darr make fun of everything. It takes a lot for me to dislike music. I either dig it, kinda dig it or forget about it. Basedworld for life. I'm happy phaynes stopped being a racist piece of shit and is expanding his taste. I threw out my recs to him. But I'll still tease the dude because he gets riled up too.

Which is why I made the comment in here. I wouldn't care if you ever saw the comment. I didn't do it because I cared, and I wasn't really whining. I did it because it was entertaining to me to regurgitate what you said to me to people doing similar things. I do it with every stupid argument that Jason Tate makes on the site.

Peace be with you, I'm not going to stop antagonizing any of you if I feel like it and I'm not going to stop having interesting discussions with the people who want to have them.
definitely not phaynes.

I just feel like I see you say a lot of shit about hype/something being overrated or the other part, which was you just picking at someone elses opinion without offering much of one yourself. I don't really care anymore, I didn't care when I woke up the next morning, which is why I thought seeing you post about it again was funny. It doesn't really matter.

And alrighty then. I guess this was ...something.

Little Nicky utilising the ignore feature after so much time spent on his painful 'anyone who uses the ignore function is a bitch' grind. Nice one.

I think you're misunderstanding the point of me talking about hype or something being overrated. I get what you mean, lots of people say shit is bad because of hype or they just say it's overrated. That's not what I am/was trying to do. I'm interested in popular culture and how it affects people, so I'm interested in why some things are so hyped up while others go unnoticed. It's not me saying this is bad because it has a lot of hype, that's ignorant and stupid. I honestly just want to know why people like certain things and why bands/artists get immensely popular. Curiosity over criticism.

Well I get that then. It does come off as shitting on something for being hyped sometimes tho. Which is probably incidental and bound to happen at least once in a while.

There's a lot of stuff I wanted/expected to love that fell flat for me. I didn't like Ariel Pink's nearly as much as their last one and I listened to Every Time I Die literally three times and then forgot it. When I listen to Motion City Soundtrack's album, particularly "Everyone Will Die", actually makes me stop listening to music for a few days at a time because of how much I dislike it.
