• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

8/10 Yeah, it's cool. Musical tastes inevitably do change. Often quite drastically.

Upward Movement (Dave Owns)
I also don't play metal or hard/prog rock with my band. I am sure I could get away with a song or two like that, but not an entire setlist. I like the music, but I've been exposed to it for so long that the "trick" of it being new and rebellious and different and whatnot has worn off a little. I still like selected artists or things that I have a particular emotional connection to (I can listen to Rammstein for ages) but most metal is a no. Plus my ex is into it and a lot of my memories are related to that. And I don't want to be in that mindset at all.

So I listen to a lot of stuff that's different because we play it with the band. I also feel that the musical elitism that is rampant in a lot of circles is just so wrong. "It's not metal, therefore I won't like it" (substitute classical music/jazz/indie hipster". Blegh. I hate that mindset. If I want to listen to folk-pop I will and if I want to hear dark growling over thundering beats, I will listen to that, thank you. I'm not less of a human being.

I think I have SW's opinion on all of this.
