I was at a party full of engineers last night, playing a banjo and some dude recognized Aeroplane. It was cool.

When you get offered all sorts of interesting drugs within twenty minutes of walking through the doors.

no one i've met in college has musical taste remotely similar to mine. everyone's into feel-good hippie-frat shit, it's sickening. you know, "it's all good" type music...it's NOT all good!

I hate when people say they'll listen to anything and then I tried to to make them listen to Autechre and it just doesn't work.

I feel ya, man.

There are a few weirdos here and there that have a similar taste to mine, but for the most part, it's all really bad.

Yuck.

i hope to find a few kids into good shit. i'm not being too optimistic about finding anyone into noise, experimental music, or vinyl, but maybe someone into punk or hip-hop. the "music geeks" here are just into regular indie rock...

We would be friends.
I used to be a big Autechre fan.
My heart lit up when I read that.

I think I've found more professors that like good music than peers. Part of me wishes that I'd gone to UB (I was accepted) because Tony Conrad teaches there.

yeah i always wondered if the kids in his classes are aware that they're in the midst of a legend...that would be so out of control.

I've met quite a few people with wonderful taste. We've had singalongs every other night, and played through most of the Aeroplane songs last night. Or meditation circle jams are also a highlight.

Everyone listens to typical indie dreck, the Dresden Dolls, or show tunes (RENT is the worst in the world) at my school.

Oh except this one kid who blasts his shitty noise rock mixes in the print shop.

my friend is at art school right now. his best friend so far is a guido from long island and all he does is get high, lift weights, avoid social interaction, and eat cheese steaks. i don't know if this is the typical art school experience, but it sounds pretty weird.

you know when you're in art school when you make lame posts about art school as if you being in art school is what you really wanted to say. I still like you

you guys dont know what you are talking about, and besides, I really could care less what my friends listen to as long as they dont force me to listen to the stuff I dont like. and there are plenty of beautiful girls.
