Black metal bands usually have horns.

"Call Me Maybe" gave me hope, but that hope is slowly fading again. Most distressing trends, to me, are autotune, mediocre lyrics and songs being crafted as radio-station "filler" with a shelf-life of a couple of months.

I get around some of these problems by listening to non-English pop where you have some other musical influences and where I often don't even understand the mediocre lyrics :o

Does this give you more or less hope? :)

I work in an office on my own computer so I just plug in headphones and Spotify all day

Not sure that would be appropriate where I am.  I doubt our company has unlimited bandwidth.

I dunno if mine does either. I also don't particularly care honestly.

I have unlimited mobile bandwidth (in theory, at least), I'd be surprised if there was a landline without unlimited bandwidth.

I'd be surprised if anyone anywhere in Canada had unlimited bandwidth.

I think there might be some confusion here between a domestic "landline" - i.e. cable or ADSL - and a commercial landline - which may well be a dedicated fibre.  Some domestic services are truly unlimited (but often, in the UK at least, with a "fair usage" policy that means they can restrict you at will), and many commercial services are actually changed by the amount of traffic, and so are not unlimited at a flat charging rate, as a domestic link might be.

things that give me greater faith in pop music: Lorde's song making fun of pop culture as a whole being entirely about who's the biggest fuckhead is the one that won 'best song' at the Grammys. suck on that, shitpop world
