Consistently Uncool

As you may have noticed on my Twitter update last night, Wes walked by my computer last night and said, “You have a Christina Aguilera channel on Pandora?”  His voice, tinged with disbelief and rife with judgment, hung in the silence of the house before I replied, “You listen to The Darkness voluntarily?”

I’ve been thinking about this all day and it’s really got me going.  I’ve already shared here that I don’t have the best taste in movies.  Sure, I thought Citizen Kanewas teriffic, but I also think The Day After Tomorrow is ten kinds of awesome fun.  I’ve never been one to pretend I was cool, so why start now?

For example, I hate concerts.  I would love to say that I adore concerts, get a thrill from listening to live bands, get a kick out of being being pressed up against countless hundreds of sweaty strangers; but that’s just not the case.  I also dislike Alice in Chains, The Pursuit of Happyness, and The Beastie Boys.  Can’t stand ’em.

I’m so not cool it’s painful.

What do I like?  I like Christina Aguilera.  I love Muse.  I adore LostLars and the Real Girlmade me laugh so hard I cried a little.  Queen rocks my socks, and Journey lights up my whole freaking life.  I like bad natural disaster action movies and cheesy power ballads.  I drink my coffee with creamer (the sweet, completely obscuring kind) and I always fasten my seatbelt.  I’m pretty lame and I like it that way.

I’m not an idiot, nor am I a tween girl, but I like Christina Aguilera.  Her voice impresses me, and I think her music’s fun.  She may not fit into the list of bands I normally list as my favorites (like Muse, Radiohead, Damien Rice, Franz Ferdinand, etc.) and her music may not be the best ever in the history of the world, but hey.  I like her.  So there.

Which musicians do you keep locked away with the skeletons in your closet?

  1. -Blanche, Nice! I think “Lost in Love” is hilariously awesome, the best wallowing is self pity song EVER.

  2. -Rockstar, Ewwww, I forgot about that. Still though, you listen to The Darkness and Guns n Roses (I refuse to give in and put little dashes around the n) so there’s NO WAY you can harass me for my Christina Aguilera channel. No sir. Not now. Not ever. Never.

  3. I went thru my entire itunes library and could only find these that I feel guilty for liking.

    Scissor Sisters, Mika, Kanye West, Howie Day, Guster, Evanescence, Enya, Dido, Deadeye Dick (Remember them? ‘New Age Girl.’ LMAO, I only have the one song I use in my 90’s mix)

    But, with me having some street cred left in my indie-snob community, I only have a few songs from everyone of the artist except for Scissor Sisters, I have all of their stuff! **Sings, “I don’t feel like dancing…”**

  4. -EdgellACE, You went through your entire iTunes library?! I appreciate your commitment! I love Evanescence, and I think some of Kanye West’s music is fun even though he may be the annoying egotistical person currently occupying the West coast. I saw a Scissor Sisters music video once and it was a lot of fun, so that means they can’t lose you your cred ;)
