The Glorious Hum - Main Page

My google ranking right now is pretty amazing, to the extent where people searching for tabs for the Life Pursuit get my site poping up at #1. If you're one of those people, I'm very very sorry.
On to blogging...

HI-larious categorizations of various types of music nerds here and here from somethingawful. I'm somewhere between being a twee twit and an indie fan. Really, I was laughing SOOO amazingly hard when I read these descriptions. Of course, the guy who wrote them listens to R&B...

Favorite Quotes:
  • on Twee Twits: "Drawbacks of Friendship: Two words: Belle & Sebastian"
  • on Emo Kids: "To refer to emo as an entire subculture centered on being vain, melodramatic, pathetic, self-absorbed, and emotionally histrionic would be unfair. There’s more to it than that. There’s also all the terrible music, stupid haircuts, and fantastically complex MySpace profiles."
  • on Kids These Days: "The Hot Topic era is over. Now you can get co-opted, repackaged rebellion at J.C. goddamn Penney."

Other Stuff

  • How IMix's are changing people's tastes in music
  • eMusic is beating out ITunes for Indie? Whoopy!
  • Jack White critiques the critics. hmm
  • Belle and Sebastian and the New Pornographers concert will be on NPR, along with what sounds like an interview. I will be AT the concert. yay....
