and oddly enough, I started both threads. I don’t know why. I went back and read that one and just got mad all over again. I don’t mind so much when people disagree with me; my problem is when people misinterpret or ignore my original points. Or tell me that my opinions are just outright wrong.

I see no similarity in the topics (shortage of female dino fans / people who think J’s music is "sad"). Do us poor little uncultured chickies just not UNDERSTAND dino beause we’re not men and we can’t relate? Of course, that must be it. [img]images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] Females don’t buy records, go to concerts, or share any of the emotions that the poor tortured men of the world do. And according to Dimpfelmoser, we don’t "define" ourselves through music as much as men do, nor do we play air guitar. Let’s face it, our only role in the music scene is that of the groupie/whore, or that of a seemingly conniving and manipulative Yoko Ono. Fuck it, I should just throw out all my records by male artists. What right have I to think I can "understand" any of them?

Everyone is going to get a little something different from any given piece of art. Equally important to consider is that, without knowing anything about my life personally, any inferrences landing outside my own original text are shots in the dark. I welcome ANYone’s opinion; else I wouldn’t have started the thread. But please don’t assume you necessarily know where I’m coming from, if I haven’t declared it myself.

I’m frustrated. I think I should’ve developed the first post a little more, if only as a preemptive measure against more misinterpretation. Oh well.

For now, I’m going to go put on some Dino, and not wallow in sadness. In fact, I might listen to it and get motivated to find a new job. I think I’m gonna take a break from the bbs for a little while, and plan my next attack. [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]

take care,

p.s. Jasper, if you ever do write that paper, I’d like to read it sometime.

p.p.s. apologies to you all if I got a little carried away….it’s the "crying on the sidewalk" facet of my nature, rearing its ugly head as I sit on the brink of a breakup.
