I’m late…

From your musical tastes to your political views, were you ever way ahead of the rest of us, adopting the new and the emerging before everyone else?

I used to think I was ahead of folks when finding new and interesting music.  99.9% of the time, I’m usually so far behind the curve it’s a miracle I learn anything.  I tried my best to keep up to date on the latest music that I was into.  Most of what I was finding had already been out for a year or twenty, depending on the artist.  It still felt fresh and new to me.  That’s always a pretty good feeling.  That just means it was supposed to stand the test of time.  Or I might just have really bad taste in music.  I guess that would be up to whoever decided to form an opinion.

I found a cd, “This is Boston, not Austin Vol. 4”.  I thought it was the greatest thing ever.  I’ve had to replace it twice.  I got it about a year after I graduated high school… So, about eleven years ago.  The cd was about 9 years old already.  That’s a relatively short time, but it blew my mind how much I missed.  To be fair, I wasn’t really into the quiet, acoustic stuff before then for the most part.
