“Yeah, well I don’t trust this guy. I think he re-gifted, and then he de-gifted, and now he’s using an upstairs invite as a springboard to a Super Bowl sex romp!”—Jerry, describing Tim Whatley in the Seinfeld episode “The Label Maker”
This person started to follow me the other day as well, but it didn’t concern me in the slightest. Why, you ask? Because besides napstr, there are three tumblrs that follow me that have not posted any content.
http://dwalker19.tumblr.com/http://youdontexist.tumblr.com/http://allisonmichelle.tumblr.com/ (at least this one attempted to fill something out)
And in the past there have been two tumblrs that followed me that never posted anything.
Am I the only one? Does anyone else have spy tumblrs?
SAGITTARIUS - The Happy-Go-Lucky One (Nov 22 - Dec 21) Good-natured optimist. Doesn’t want to grow up (Peter Pan Syndrome). Indulges self. Boastful. Likes luxuries and gambling. Social and outgoing. Doesn’t like responsibilities. Often fantasizes. Impatient. Fun to be around. Having lots of friends. Flirtatious. Doesn’t like rules. Sometimes hypocritical. Dislikes being confined - tight spaces or even tight clothes. Doesn’t like being doubted. Beautiful inside and out.
And this is yet another example of Astrology being crap. Only about 10% of this is like me.* I’d bet about 10% of this resembles you too.
*The part about being beautiful inside and out, in case you were wondering.
“What totally kills me about this is that anyone, anywhere is seriously discussing Billy Joel. Could commentary by 23 year olds about a man who released his first hit song in 1973 be any less culturally relevant?
Also, wtf with this ‘authenticity’ bs? Says the people who look like they raided my closet and my music collection from 1987. Shut up. When you find something truly ‘authentic’ let me know. Also, when you find the time to write a billion of your own songs, on your own piano and make your own money off it, come find me and we’ll talk authenticity.
I’m sure he’s sitting on his gold piano, in his golden house crying into his golden cereal bowl because a bunch of non-relevant, self important douchebags fail to realize that their opinions on a musician who achieved cultural relevancy before they were even fucking born matters only to themselves.
Could we possibly talk about anything LESS timely? You like his music, or you don’t. No one cares what you think.”—
I had to reblog just this comment by littleorphanammo.
What I was going to say earlier, and should have; is that I stopped judging people for the type of music they listened to when I GREW UP. If everyone listened to what I like, the world would be a pretty boring place.
The thing that is so annoying about the hipster aesthetic, and pretty much anyone who derides music based on its “authenticity” is that they’re so busy concerning themselves about being authentic that they’re contrived. Billy Joel doesn’t give a shit if you think he’s authentic or not while the almost singular concern of the hipster is molding their image so precisely that they’re everything they hate about everyone else.
I’m not a huge Billy Joel fan, but I wouldn’t for a second waste my time trying to hate him for being inauthentic. Some here have made excellent points where Melloncamp and Springsteen (more Springsteen I think, i think Melloncamp is loathed by hipsters as well.) are somehow above Joel in terms of credibility even though they’re cut from the same cloth. Springsteen is far more wrapped up and conscious of his aesthetic, and rarely deviates from that path.
“And So It Goes,” given the right moment, can still hit me where it hurts, and that’s all that matters.
Oh, here I was thinking I just hated Billy Joel because he sucks. Silly of me to think that could be it; I’m glad I have Soupsoup to tell me that it’s really all my own damn fault.
Billy Joel is one of those artists that I think I dislike, but then someone puts on a CD of his greatest hits and I realize how f$#*ing awesome he is.
