an image of the average readers of Lolita and 100 years of solitude listening to ben just popped into my head. does not compute.

What is your image of the "average reader" of those books? I read both of those in the last 3 months. I think Clare Quilty would take issue with your statement, too. :)

I've gotten to where I don't read music reviews anymore at all. I just rely on you people to steer me towards the good stuff. And Ben's opening acts.

they do accurately represent their reader base. pretentious hipsters, ugh.
Oh God no.  I'm a pretentious hipster.  Pretentious hipsters have a HUGE hard-on for irony.  We're so ironic we take almost nothing seriously.  I'm so ironic I can't even have sex without cracking wise the whole time.  (Oh I'm a real laff riot in bed.)
ya know, i'm so used to reading your posts now i just assume everything you say is sarcastic. that being the case i almost fell out of my chair laughing at this.

well there are those that read those books for the pleasure and enjoyment of reading them, which i'd lump you and clare into. then there are the other people who read them that are really reading them because everyone in their circle of friends is reading them.

i probably shouldn't have said average, but that's basically who i picture reading those books nowadays, but with more explicatives. granted i almost read 100 years of solitude in high school after hearing about just how weird it was and i wanted to read it for myself to see that.

ISSUE ISSUE ISSUE. I'M TAKING IT.

You know, the fact that I'm a girl and go by this name, you'd think people would take more of an issue with that. In fact, people believe it's my real name or it's an AWESOME name. I have friends in real life that refer to me as Clare, too.

I'm Canadian, so we don't have SATs here. Thank god.

i use it online sometimes, like in willpowers or wiliampowers, but the funny thing is that people i know in real life who knew my name before hand call me william. one of my friends asked my mom for me like that. she didn't know what was going on.

I knew a dude called Will Powers. GASP.

Zach and I are just so cool, we need more than one name to get everything covered. :-P

yea we are. i actually took that name from a video game. but still nonetheless we still need at least two names.

if i were a super villain, however, i would like my name to 'Dr. Henry Killinger' or 'Nat King Cobra' or a pun along those lines.

i can see what it means tho. it means if you only list the genre of music you listen to, versus specifics you tend to be on the "dumber" side.
so it seems.
