I wish that it was still possible to go to a cafe or retail establishment and not be assaulted by loud music of any genre. Some of the shopping centers around here even pipe it through speakers in the parking lot. I honestly miss the days of "elevator music" that stayed in the background.

If you're complaining about Neil Young, The Doors, and Nine Inch Nails, then you have absolutely atrocious taste in "muzak".

And it's NOT music, for anyone's information. I know that back in the day, parents said the same about the Stones and Led Zep. Well, they were WRONG! Those groups, even when hard rock, had MELODY!!!

Pretty much. Which is why the whole generation vs. generation riff is just stupid.

Yes. I guess it is.

And it works.

Now, back to working on my playlist. I have had a thing for Beck today.

Now why wouldn't someone enjoy this? Good stuff.

But if you don't wanna hear it, create your own playlists and tune it out!

Anyone feel me on this?
What do you do besides sit in cafes and hang around statues typing on your Chromebook?

Earbuds are your answer, BTW.
