This leads me to my blurb for the day. There are those who just deal with people calling it "techno," and there are those who sit there and educate people until they understand why it isn't techno. These are the electronic obscurists of the world.
What is pop? To me, pop is just musical that's well, popular. I don't see pop having any difference from other music, only that a lot of people listen to it because it's easily acceptable. These obscurists, however, hate pop, and think it's the music of the devil.
These obscurists are named for the type of music they listen to, obscure shit. Stuff you've never heard of before. To me, the music can even be terrible, but they like it because no one listens to it. So, when they hear some tracks on a Top 40 station, they assume it sucks, and they like to voice it.
When I hear electronic music on the radio, I honestly could care less who's listening to it. In fact, I think it's great that the masses get a chance to. Most people are also like this. What really ticks people off is the fact that "lemmings" go around singing the song because they heard it on the radio.
Now I don't mind this, but those obscurists seem to quite a bit. Basically, if I hear my Daft Punk on Z100, I'm still going to listen to them, regardless if people mindlessly do so as well.
So what do you guys think? Are you obscurists? Do lemmings bother you? Comment below, because it's now open to the public.
That is all,
