Geek realm

Last week, I caught up on a music BBS that I haven't posted on for years. I really missed it; the people there are clever, funny, and incredibly informative. I've gotten lots of laughs there, and even more good recommendations for music that I wouldn't otherwise have heard about.

On the other hand, I also have to listen to two pompous, self-enamored windbags discussing at length how a record neither of them have ever heard probably isn't any good, or at least can't possibly be as good as people say it is, and at any rate it isn't as good as a record by another band that they HAVE heard of and which they imagine is far better than the first record, not that either of them plan on actually listening to the first record.

So, it's a trade-off.
