  • Any help with my problem.........

    Anyone got a 'pat' answer for when a non-music dude or work friend or family member ask's you "So what music do you play / listen to?"

    Im fed up of rhyming every genre under the sun out, only to lose them after the 1st one i mention.

    I am thinking of just saying Hip Hop from now on, as that was what brought me here in the first place.

      I advise against use of the term 'beat head' - it confuses people even more

          "allsorts"

          If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                  When dealers ask I just say "I know what I want and if I see it I'll buy it".
                  "Only one thought left, that makes me come alive,
                  and that is you and me side by side, on the licorice ride"

                      i my try hardest to aviod the subject,but when forced i tell them a "bit of everything apart from "dance" and "classical" and stay well away from the whole hip hop thing cause that only confuses matters further and ends up in me sayin' "thats not hip hop its (c)rap!"
                      "Hangin' out with you two is like partying with Fugazi"

                          Well... it's just so hard... and I get so tired of them sometimes...I could say "easy listening" but then they're gonna pull out some Hugo Winterhalter instead of Soulful Strings or something...
                          And if I say "country" - they probably won't pull out some cool David Alan Coe...
                          And if I say "soundtracks" they're gonna try to sell med Fame-records instead of the Lalo Schifrin I might be after...
                          And so on...
                          90% of all music in any given genre isn't any interesting - it's the 10% I'm after in like 15 different genres.
                          Dealers are always tryin' to sell off their crappiest shit for the most money they can squeeze out of it - so I try to keep a bit secretive about what I'm looking for - and avoid getting in discussions like "No, I actually don't think Bruce Springsteen has made any record I'd be interested in owning..." - that stuff usually gets them even more upset....
                          "Only one thought left, that makes me come alive,
                          and that is you and me side by side, on the licorice ride"

                              On a related note - what do you guys say to someone at work when they say things along the line of "hey, you're into records aren't you? How much is my copy of (enter name of shite album*) worth?"


                              *top candidates this week are the "War Of The Worlds" OST or that E.L.O. album on blue vinyl


                              ... how do you tell them it's only so much landfill without causing offence ??
