i took my big senheisser headphones to work today, hooked up my external hard drive, installed foobar and tried to get cracking on my work.. tried because there is a drama with the connection to the server which is just terrible, taking forever to do simple things preventing me from doing any work.

the guy sitting next to me asked me what i was listening to, i said ‘oh, at the moment, nine inch nails’ he responds with ‘oh yeh nice’ and we talked about work for a bit.. then out of nowhere he asks

so, is nine inch nails like, hardcore trance or like.. house music?

i was a bit ‘omgwtfbbq?!’ i explained to him that nine inch nails was, i guess, industrial, maybe it could scrape in as alternative rock.. probably not for a few years now, but it was worth a try trying to explain.

i asked him what the hell was with adelaide and dance music. there was dance music playing softly in the background at the resteraunt i ate at on sunday, and two of the three pubs i have been to have also been playing really shitty dance music. in fact, there are guys that have shitty dance tracks as their ringtones. i’m not talking 20-something guys, its everyone from 20-something to 60-something. its quite.. odd.

the guy then tells me that ‘yeh adelaide has only 2 scenes, a dancey pill popping drugged up scene and a metal scene. he still didn’t understand what nine inch nails were and started telling me about all the dance clubs i should go to. i say ‘no no no, you got it all wrong, i’d probably be covered more my the metal scene, when i go out, i go to goth clubs cause they play the music i like’ to which he responds ‘oh yeh, so what else do you listen to?’ so i tell him.. static-x, rob zombie, spineshank, american head charge and then other less heavy stuff like smashing pumpkins and placebo.. i was at least hoping he’d know those two, but no, he was still looking at me like i had 2 heads!

at least he gave up trying to figure it out after that.
