At times, it does seem to be an effort to one up each other in degrees of obscurity. I don't care to play that game or engage in any other competition in this thread. That's all. I enjoy sharing good music and seeing what other people enjoy -- popular, obscure, cool, or not.
Wait; your original remark was directed mostly at me?? What...I'm
the lone guy that posts what's supposedly "cool"? No, I didn't realize that...and can't see why you'd single me out (and hope I'm misunderstanding you).
I talked about this before; I don't post what's "cool"...and "obscure" is a relative term. Before I stopped spinning them, I had ~6,000 CDs. I listen to a LOT of different music, and I know a lot of artists/titles.
Plus, now...I have MOG, Pandora, etc at my fingertips; so finding new bands is never hard. I admitted, my posts aren't always a truly "what I'm listening to now" (for example...I'm listening to Alt-Js An Awesome Wave
, as we speak...but there's no need to post that
; because it's already been mentioned. So what...you want to see the cover, every time someone spins it).
As I've said...it's more about, hey I think this good and I don't think I've seen anyone else mention it; so maybe I'll turn you on to it too
. So...while I get your point; people probably don't mention the "well-known", pedestrian stuff; I don't think it's about being a poseur, or trying to be "cool". Not for me, anyway.
Again...not sure why you'd single me out anyway.
