Just ignore him. He'll go away. In fact, I'm surprised he's still here.

For whatever reason I feel a sense of ownership and entitlement when it comes to the things I like, and this mixed with my distrust and anger towards everybody probably due to my lack of friends and me being insecure makes me feel irrational anger and hatred when I see people sharing some of the more obscure artists I listen to, which is ironic considering that without the Internet's history of sharing data and information I wouldn't have access to or even knowledge of the majority of music I listen to. You're right in that it does not affect me in the slightest whether or not more people listen to it, unlike a messageboard or forum. Although I am afraid of artists I like gaining a large following in the west and having to run into shitty memes about them and normalfaggots circlejerking them in comment sections. I hope I've explained myself thoroughly, continue doing whatever you please.

I'm not spoonfeeding you, think of it as a right of passage.

Sorry for intruding into your safe space, it won't happen again Tumblr-kun.

You know, you were talking about your favorite board being ruined by outsiders, at the same time as making shitposts like those in total disregard of this place, which you said you'd just found's, tone and culture. Hes not wrong to be dismissive.
Those artists probably already get all of that from japanese normals though. They're not any better than western ones you know. I dont know what other ones you listen to, but the quest for 青春時代 involved some japanese posts about them on instagram. And its not like everyone who uses 2ch is a truNEET hikki otaku, regarding the 2ch archive threads about them. When everythings published on the internet, on the web at that, there is no real obscurity, its a relative term.

(help page says bbcode works, I hope it is true)

I also am afraid of this happening, word for word. I revel in obscurity. I'm not sure I would say it's because I don't have a personality and I supplement it with my interests (like reddit douchebags would say); I think I've always been an outsider and I've searched long and hard to find the things I enjoy. I spent years developing my tastes and the context for understanding the things I like. When they become memes and everyone likes them, I know they don't understand it like I do! There's no way they could! I usually can't even hold a conversation with normal people about say Dark Souls, even though I've been a fan of From since before Demon's Souls. They never ever understand the actual appeal of the game and had to watch YouTube lore videos to even grasp that there was world building to begin with.

Sorry for rambling. It's nice when you meet other people who understand you. I've always been an outsider.

To be fair he did say that he hadn't "flogged HASAMI group on enough different sites yet".

When people say that on anonymous message boards they never really mean it.

It's an unhealthy characteristic to have for sure, but I don't think it can be helped.

They mean it, just not the literal meaning.

Drudkh is pretty rad. I think my favorite record of theirs is probably Microcosmos, at least it's the one that I've listened to the most by them. I was really into digging for new black metal bands for a while, but I've sorta dropped out of it lately. Think I just got burned out, maybe I'll return some day. Some of my favorites are Nagelfar, Paysage d'Hiver, Endlichkeit, & Shaidar Logoth.

What instruments do my post office friends play? I've been trying to learn piano lately and after I practice I feel like I've made a little progress, but then I'll listen to a recording with a decent pianist and I get crushed because I realize I have such a long way to go. Oh well, just need to keep playing every day and I'll get there eventually.

Hello my brother. I play the drums as I have for the last 11 years.

I play bass! I've only been playing since mid december but I think I've made a lot of good progress so far. Being able to lock in with the groove of a song is so much fun, physically feeling the music is so different from just passive listening.

It can be easy to get discouraged when you have access to so many recordings of skilled musicians these days, try not to let it get you down, everyone starts somewhere! I don't know if this helps but I try to look to recordings as a sort of goal to work towards. Instead of getting discouraged I find myself motivated to keep working hard to reach the proficiency of the recording.

I also love learning music by ear, it's challenging but really rewarding. I get to hear all these tiny nuances when transcribing that I wouldn't hear otherwise. Here's part of a bassline that I transcribed recently: https://vocaroo.com/i/s0cY7lAwVTTQ

that's pretty great for just a few months of practice! I play both guitar and bass, getting used to bass was very easy after already learning with guitar, but I can't imagine how rough the first couple weeks of bass playing must be if you've never worked your fingers like that before.

One of my favorite things to do playing bass is put on a funk/soul record and just play along to the whole thing by ear.

As for my progress on piano, yeah it'll get better but after playing stringed instruments for 14 years and being pretty good at them, it's frustrating to be at a beginner level again. Just gotta put in that effort.

Fascinating thread in its longevity. Five years. I can only wonder who was here, where they've gone and what they're listening to now.

I like to go on youtube and look for underground music that I enjoy. There are so many channels out there that put forgotten/obscure indie music from the 90's early 00's

I have a feeling Haruoumi Hosono is well liked here.

I like Pacific better. His first album, Hosono House is excellent.

Devin Townsend's stuff is a bit hit or miss for me, but the good stuff really is good.

I've been playing guitar on and off for quite a few years. I'm still pretty bad due to not taking it seriously, but something recently clicked and I've been putting in a lot more playing time than I've done in years.
219 Name: Anonymous : 2018-04-07 03:32
I agree. His stuff is a bit hit or miss, but I love his acoustic stuff.
220 Name: Anonymous : 2018-04-07 03:33

I haven't been at all keen on much of his recent work (esp. Epicloud and Ziltoid 2), but I love much of Devin Townsend's older material. Even his first four DTP albums I really enjoyed. I'm weirdly fond of The Hummer, his foray into ambient.

Have you found any cool music lately, friends? I've fallen in love with this band recently, and now all I want in life is to see them succeed and evolve.

Following up on this, I've been working through a new song and it's giving me some trouble, but I think I'm getting the hang of it.


Is anyone else learning a new song they'd like to share?

I'm listening to a CD I just bought of a local reggae band.

Absolutely amazing movie as well.
I classify it as "one crazy night movie" together with After Hours and few others that I can't remember right now and Miracle Mile was the best of the bunch.
