A rant.

01.28.2009

i want to take a break to rant about something that happened in my New Millenium Studies class (don’t ask) today. our assignment for today was to bring in a meaningful object and explain it’s significance as a segue into our first project on The Self (again, don’t ask). i didn’t really bring anything important to college since i’m not a girl, so i just grabbed my Sony MDRV150 headphones and brought them in and explained how  hearing my band’s final mixes through them for the first time meant alot to me.

that was all fine and dandy, until it was the guy across from me’s turn to go. i already figured this guy was in solid altbag/entry level alt  territory, but he removed all doubt when he opened his mouth.

he also brought a pair of headphones, albeit a much more expensive pair (see below). he prefaced his presentation by explaining that he “also brought in headphones, but mine are a little more meaningful” and then told us all how awesome and expensive they were and how he uses them to have a super authentic music listening experience or some other entry level horseshit that most people i know stopped fooling themselves into thinking a year and a half ago.

i spent the rest of the class kicking myself for not calling him out on being a pretentious fuck because i am a pussy, then came back and blogged about it. fuck.

the end.

    I’m sure that guy’s headphones are awesome for listening to John Mayer. Ohhh yeah.

    you’ve got all semester to make him look like the douche he is…

    unless, of course, he beats you to it and demonstrates it all by himself (which he’s already started doing)


  3. I’m sure his father bought them for him. And I’m sure his favourite song is 1,000 Miles by Vanessa Carlton.

    “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

    Yeah, Fuck that dude. You should have kicked him in the balls. He most likely uses them to listen to his moms Barbra Streisand cassettes.
