pressure fluctuations worth listening to

If you haven't heard yet, Mp3 blogs are the surest way to hear the best in up and coming music that will one day become so big that you will be given license to turn a 180 and curse the band for cheating on you with multiple other fans. Millions maybe.

Yes, kids just like us (living pay check to pay check, and spending more money on cover charges and PBR's than food), except they live somewhere where shit actually happens. Shit that matters. Shit that one day could show up staring you in the face on the cover of PEOPLE magazine, while you count change for that six pack of PBR in the grocery store checkout line. These kids lace up their social representatives to fight their way through the sea of pretentiousness and deprecating image. They wage through all of this to get their hands on the latest demo tapes and 7", and share them with the rest of the world. Or, some just make you feel dumb for not being in the "know".

My thesaurus fell apart, I'm done.

So, by now there are a lot more blogs than two years ago, and even some of the old ones seem to be dropping in quality. This lack of Quality Control seems to be fueled more my numbers game, than a rise in blogs. Everyone has to get out the next big song, has to get the most page hits, has to be the first to mention Kanye sampled a Daft Punk song (and how great that song was 8 years ago, and how you were still listening to N'Sync 8 years ago).

Said the Gramophone, sorry, but I haven't visited you in months. We've just grown apart. It's not you, it's me.

No, I'm not going to just date Scissor Kick! We're just hanging out, and besides it wouldn't be none of your business, nohow. Fine, fine! You want the truth? I've been seeing Scissor Kick behind your back this whole time!

Why? Well Scissor Kick knows how to find real music worth my time, and only posts every week or two. You, you post every day! It's mostly boring dribble, and if you haven't noticed, I don't even pay attention to it anymore. That's right, it's bullshit!

When you get done packing my stuff, you can drop it off at Scissor Kick's house.

I know shit about music, and will only say "music is my life" when it alone is paying all my bills.
