    I Love Off The Beaten Path Music

    I'm definitely a "rock snob", and as such most of what I listen to is obscure. Even when it's music by popular artists it is always things no one else has seemed to ever heard. Like I like The Byrds but in their Gram Parsons era, I love The *** Ponys, Wesley Willis, Harry Nilssen...

    Well, It Feels That Way

    I don't listen to mainstream music much at all. I mostly listen to indie stuff, or alt stuff. And I didn't really think it was that obscure until I tried to explain what I listened to when I was with others.  I got that 'what the frick are you talking about' look...
