trust me, everyone else who reads this, i've tried to introduce stuff to him that people actually know and it always end in failure. he's convinced that listening to david cook will make his ears bleed (WHICH IT WILL NOT!)

The EGE said...

I never said that. I merely don't intend to listen to music that I find appallingly awful.

The EGE said...

And you have no right to criticize me till YOU try some of this stuff.

mandachan said...

he is not awful.

and you can't pick on me for not listening to your stuff if you won't listen to mine.

The EGE said...

So can we just agree to disagree? You like mainstream stuff, I don't. I like rather random music, you don't. Okay? ok.

The EGE said...

Oh, it is.
