I'm Getting Old, Getting Over It
I'm Getting Old, Getting Over It
11/12/09 at 01:41 PM by Adam Pfleider
I missed my weekly blog this week. Sorry. I still haven't caught up since this weekend on sleep/work/site contributions-interviews.

I brought up this thread today as an offshoot of that. I wanted to talk a bit about this weekend at Fun Fun Fun Fest; about the many continents of music that have been blended into so many different forms. This decade has been exciting. I'm excited about avenues such as Bandcamp and Lala. I'm excited about bands going back to a D.I.Y. - though digital/viral - attitude they have about their band, their brand, their company, their life.

I want to bring up this quote one more time from my review, as not to sound self indulgent.

Fun Fun Fun Fest Wrap-UpThis brings me to the point of the weekend, and one of the reasons that this has been the best festival I have ever attended. Whether it was Crystal Castles or Gorilla Biscuits - two completely different bands - people were into it. The listener was enjoying it in their own way, while at the same time expressing the same ideals of why we love music. The only boundaries are the ones we create. Sometimes it's necessary to have those boundaries to describe to people what they may be getting into, but in the end we are all in it for the same thing, a sort of escapism of entertainment for some and fond attachment for others - all outside our regular 9 to 5. This weekend offered plenty of good music across the board, and though there were specific crowds at each stage, everyone was enjoying the same vibe.

We are all on this site for one reason: Our love of music. Fuck the genres. Fuck the bullshit. We can argue about who's better and who progressed well and who didn't. In the end, we all feel as passionate about the artists for who we feed off - and vice versa.

Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" has come on as I'm typing this. Who knows what the next decade will bring. I'm sort of sick of rehashing this topic myself. So the above are my final words on the subject.

"Music is cool, sometimes." - a good friend

love and respect.
