I’ve learned how stupid I am
I’ve always thought my music taste has sucked, so I’m very glad to finally have two professionals affirm my deepest suspicions. They have systematically targeted EVERY single one of my favorite bands (except for Coldplay, and I’m sure an episode on them is coming soon...) — Green Day, Weezer, Oasis, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, and R.E.M. — pulling back the curtain to reveal the rancid, vacuous bilge that defines my music taste. However, I think one thing might be amiss in their judgements: according to their all-knowing proclamations, enjoying each and every one of these bands renders me stupid. Stupidity is cumulative, so my combined mental retardation deriving from my terrible music taste should render me incapable of even writing this review. I don’t know how they managed to get that wrong, but I hope they keep this transgression in mind for future episodes. I daresay that when they do cover Coldplay, my mental faculties will have devolved to a point where I will no longer be able to count the number of episodes dedicated to Interpol. And then perhaps I will be too dumb to derive any pleasure at all from my favorite bands, which I think may be the true end goal of this podcast. Time will tell.
