Are You a Swifty?
@waltersalas  That’s cool.   I just disagree with you on ol’ Taylor. Maybe at some point I’ll feel differently.   Maybe not.  
Are You a Swifty?
@simao My description of Taylor Swift’s music (have you ever heard Taylor Swift’s music, by the way?) as constituting a “cynical exploitation of the American’s need for vapid pablum” is not at all “on par with those in this community who feel that... 
Qualities Of An End-game System
  How about this. End game is a label some folks use as an attempt to put an end to (cap) on upgraditis. The false belief that there is a point when one will finally not be inclined to upgrade. This 👆

@immatthewj  Read my multiple posts here on this thread, and then read yours.   See if you can figure out which of the two things is “conversation,” and which is “trolling.”   You said I was “trolling.”   Ha!   It takes one to know one. Have you e... 
Kind of Blue
@stuartk I’ll clarify. You may have experienced this scenario one or several times in your life: Someone says, “you should check out (insert artist name). You’d like it. They are (insert genre/sub-genre label, a label that may or may not have one ...

@immatthewj Nope. Swing and a miss. I’ve said quite a bit about a whole heckuva lot of things on the three pages of this thread. I commented on, - Taylor Swift’s music and her cynical exploitation of the American’s need for vapid pablum - sexism... 
Are You a Swifty?
Sad that a thread regarding the most insipid, milquetoast, uncontroversial, apolitical celebrity somehow inspires troglodyte political blather.  
Kind of Blue
Especially in the ‘45-‘75 chronological range, there is an enormous amount. Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Mary Lou Williams, Coleman Hawkins, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Charles Mingus, Max Roach, Orn... 
Best cover songs?
@richard_stacy I listen to that ANOHNI version of “I Was Young When I Left Home” all the time. Underappreciated Dylan gem, and if forced to have just one, I’d probably choose the ANOHNI version.   My favorite LP of Dylan covers is the ‘69 LP by Th...

@larsman  What if “the new thing the kiddies are all gaga about” is, at one time, the Beatles, and at another time, it’s Taylor Swift?   What if, at one time, it’s Bob Dylan, and another, it’s 21 Savage?   Chuck Berry, or Bad Bunny? Surely we’d ag... 
Two greats from '84.
@mrdecibel You made a point to note the LPs came out 40 years ago.   You then used the term, “even today,” as in, “I enjoy (these LPs) even today.”   It sounded like you found it to be noteworthy or “surprising” that, “even today,” you enjoy these... 
Are You a Swifty?
I wonder how different her PR/media hype is from Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, & Bruce Springsteen…  
Are You a Swifty?
It’s hilarious when someone views an online forum thread as being so “beneath” them, and then goes out of their way to participate in it.   
Two greats from '84.
Is it surprising that music that was released 40 years ago might still be enjoyable?  
Are You a Swifty?
@loomisjohnson The “she’s a role model” thing you said so many of her fans said when asked what was so appealing about Taylor Swift…I find that unfortunate.   This notion of a celebrity being a “role model.”  That dog won’t hunt.   Just another pe...
