Have I just grown cynical with age or was I naïve as a kid?

Posted in Music, Odds on November 19, 2010 by The Prince of Pithy

I prefer to listen to music while I drive. Unfortunately, my CD is stuck in my player and I haven’t had a chance to fix it. So, for the past few days I’ve had to listen to the radio. (The horror.) Tonight, while flipping through the stations to find something decent, I came across a song that I probably hadn’t heard for over a decade. I remembered that as a kid I would sit on my bed, with the volume up on my Walkman listening to this song and feeling like I was connecting to some primal meaning. Listening to it today I thought, Man, this is so bland. And I wondered which was bigger, my naive liking of the song or my cynical disliking?

Of course when the next song (which is still good) came on I thought, I remember watching this video on MTV. That just made me feel old.

I had a song stuck in my head all afternoon.  It was a song I probably haven’t heard for several years.  Now, you can have it stuck in your head.  😛

God Hates a Coward

I tried listening to Tomahawk a couple years ago, but didn’t get into them. Then, last night I came across “God Hates a Coward” and, I don’t know. Yes, it’s fucked up, but yet it works.
