Really? I figured if any allegations of tardism were thrown around, it would be for having enjoyed dubstep at all.

Let me clarify what I meant.

I don't like the current state of dubstep. Like I've said, I feel like it's oversaturated with hopeful artist who think they'll make a quick buck jumping on the latest bandwagon.

When I said that those other older artists that did it for the music were still good. I still listen to those people and I still enjoy the genre.

I loved me some Korn and Nine Inch Nails back in the day.

I was hardcore.

My hemp choker necklace and black lipstick told me so.

Hawt.

I liked Korns first three albums. The only NIN I still like is broken.

But my comment was in reply to creativecoding. Korns most recent 'hit' is chuck full of Skrillex dubstep.

Christmas.

I mean, as a kid, who doesn't love the idea of a cherubic omniscient cat burglar giving you stuff just because he wasn't sharp enough to catch all the bad stuff you did? As an adult, this time of year is a super smarmy, simpering songed, salesgasm that evokes more homicidal will than good will toward men.

Some of it is simply getting old. When my wife and I see an angsty, earnest teen in the goth/emo/whatever dejure, we do our best not to chuckle in front of them. Been there, done that, didn't by the t-shirt.

I will occasionally listen to classic rock stations. I like classic rock. However, they are oldies stations now. There is a kind of desperate irrelevance they exude that is depressing.

I love Christmas, but now that it starts a month before the actual holiday, I find myself seriously burned out on it by the time it actually arrives.

I mean, as a kid, who doesn't love the idea of ...

Our family photos of Christmas time was always dad had his coffee, I had a bowl of cereal, & our facial expressions told the story that we'd rather be else where. It was always Mom that loved Christmas morning. After age 8 the entire thing felt like hassle & false obligation for me. Even back then I knew it was better to give to those that needed, & not myself. Thanksgiving has always meant more to me than Christmas. Thanksgiving is the time for uber family gathering :)

I used to have a thing for country music, way back when I was 14-15. One day, I turned on country music and couldn't stand it. It was too whiny for me, hence why I probably enjoyed it at that age.

Turkey also gets old quickly after Thanksgiving. As much as I love Thanksgiving, (essentially) leftovers once a week is overdose.

I used to really like hating stuff I used to like, but lately I find that's just not as much fun as it used to be.

I hate the idea of Santa as a parent. My wife and I killed all of the mythical home invasion creatures in one fell swoop, starting with the easter bunny, when I asked my kids if they really thought a giant rabbit could break into our house, wander around hiding things, and not get shot by dad. The others started dropping like flies after that. Really, we just hated Santa because we were broke, and some made-up fatass got credit for most of the few presents we could afford to buy, while their biological fathers' family got to team up and buy a bunch of good stuff and get credit for it all. We got to listen to how much they loved Santa, and how much they loved Christmas with the "other" family, but we just looked lazy and broke. Petty? Yes. Do I give a shit? Nope.

I used to play off my broke-ness to keep the dream alive.

"Are you sure Santa's real?"
"If he's not than who buys all your presents?"
"You?"
"C'mon. I didn't have money to buy you a candy bar at the grocery store. Do you really think I could afford to buy you all that stuff for Christmas?"

And they would ponder... and they would come to the conclusion that momma be broke... so there must be a fat man sneaking in through the electric fireplace.

I can see the logic.

I hope your kids have looks going for them, 'cause it doesn't sound like they ought to be relying on smarts.

They are brilliant girls, actually.

My 11-year-old is smart enough to pretend she still believes in Santa so she can keep getting extra gifts. Granted, she's not very convincing, but she tries.

This will likely be the last year of innocence for my little one, too. Unless she already knows... in which case, she pretends FAR more convincingly than her sister.
