GUEST,josepp Damned bloody depressing (117* d) RE: Damned bloody depressing 13 Jun 12

I don't care about people who don't listen to music. It's people who listen to it but have no idea what constitutes good from bad--that one is as good as the other. If that makes me intolerant then I'm goddamn proud of it and if that makes me bitter at the world then you bet I am.

I made a little survery and have posted at various websites. No trick questions, just very basic stuff. This is the type of info anyone should have in their heads and should be able to dash it off. These questions should be EASILY answerable.
