i guess i’m like most people here–the music doesn’t depress me and it in fact helps me when i’m depressed. and the reason i like mascis so much, especially back in high school, is because i identify with his dejected introversion. i mean, look at the lyrics: ‘i’m a leper/embarassed to be alive’. goddamn, right?
and really thats the appeal of this bbs. most of you all feel the same way. i don’t really know anyone in real life that feels this way about dinosaur jr.
