Today has been a very boring day. Typically when I’m bored, I’ll hop onto Youtube and look up some music I haven’t heard in a while. Today followed that same routine, but with a slight alteration. I looked in the comments section.
Fuck me was that a big mistake! I’ve never seen so many butthurt twelve year-olds outside of a game of Call of Duty in my entire life! The things that they were talking about were so idiotic and illogical that I was tempted to comment myself and set them straight, but I didn’t.
Rule #1: Don’t feed the trolls
If I would have commented calling out their fallacies in their comments, it would have only provided fuel for their attention-seeking minds to feed off of, which would then cause them to produce even more bullshit comments. Plus, I already saw that too many people had fallen victim to this same fate.
My qualm that I have with these brain-dead humans with an internet connection isn’t their taste in music, taste is very subjective and someone shouldn’t be faulted for it. My problem is their unwillingness to accept criticism, counterpoints or any type of rebuttal without taking it as a personal attack.
I understand that music is a very personal medium and certain songs can hold very important memories, but just because someone doesn’t appreciate said song as much as you do doesn’t make he or she hate you as well. Like I stated before, music is very SUBJECTIVE meaning that it is up to everyone’s opinion what they like and dislike. It is in no way a representation of their stance towards you or anything else, it is just their opinion on the song.
Ok, that’s enough ranting for today :P
Oh, and Happy Family Day!
