You Suck!!


Written by: Herzebeth
Published: 30.05.2008


So the culture of "You Suck!" arrived and it's stronger than ever...

I was all happy polishing my nice CD collection, I noticed my lack of a buckethead album so I went to the local record store just to find almost every single album by that fellow is more expensive than a piña colonic, so I bought the following items instead:

Buckethead - Enter The Chicken
The Kooks - Konk
Mogwai - Rock Action
Godspeed You Black Emperor - Slow Riot For New Zero Canada EP

All of a sudden an old guy (you know with geek glasses, short hair an old candlemass shirt and the classic old man fat belly) basically just looking old (he was maybe 40 or so) came to me and said...

Old Dude: So I noticed you are wearing a Carcass shirt, cool band and all, you going' CD huntin' today aren't ya'?

I thought..."uh a friendly geek, what a nice thing..."

Herz: Sort of, I just wanted some Buckethead for my collection and...

Old Dude: *Going Crazy* Buckethead?!?!?!!? what the fuck are you doing wearing a Carcass shirt if you like Buckethead?

Herz: Well uhm...what's the big deal, I'm open minded I guess...

Old Dude: *sees my new CD's* and Mogwai? Dude you suck!

Herz: WTF?!?!





Old Dude: *enters an office while looking really geek and senior*

Turns out the dude was the owner of the fucking store; so it makes me wonder, a dude who's almost 40 years old owns a record shop, he's a metal-head and hates almost everything that doesn't sound classic or old-school...then I figure, why the fuck does he opens a record shop with tons of rock albums and lacks of musical appreciation...to feel better about himself? to buy food for his kids? to earn the right of saying "you suck" to people with non metal albums on their to-buy list?

Are we all elitists? me calling him a Geek doesn't makes me that open-minded neither right? we then have "anti-poser" topics throughout the entire forum, I've seen people throwing bottles at emos and posers in concerts... yes they suck...but why really?

The thing is, maybe that old dude should have been polishing his phonograph while listening to old hippie bands like May Blitz or Iron Butterfly...he decided not to and starts listening to metal to feel less old...good for him, way to go!... but then bashes a helpless little kid (me) for buying things he doesn't like, WTF?

why the hell do most people wants to feel more like a connoiseur by telling other people "they suck"???

In the end there will be always someone more clever than you, more experienced than you, with ten times more CD's than you and so on...still we see someone with less stuff and we obviously take the chance and inmediately say "You Suck"!!!! it feels so warm and nice...but it's fucking wrong...right?...right? come on I KNOW YOU'VE USED THIS PHRASE MORE THAN ONCE!!!

so anyway, this was my nice experience this day, if you didn't like it just read the title again

How come you bought Konk? LOL

Anyway, I think people just become more pretentious with time, my personal opinion would be if a guy is cool enough to wear a carcass shirt then he probably has good taste in music, I guess he saw your handful and kicked himself, then obviously turned into a bully for you LOL.

All in all, I do like non-metal music and I do like buckethead as well, so it's just a matter of taste that's all. Oh and Education, who yells at somebody for buying a CD? I mean really, who does that?

I love how you made it seem that 45-ish is as old as dirt

That was such a ridiculous situation. I can't even get it completely. It's JUST music. Who gives a shit about how many CD's someone has or what genre bands a person listens too? Wow. Who counts, cares and does that?

Point being... that dude - he should relax.

Didn't you see Gremlins? Maybe he got really scared and never actually forgot his fears...if you feed a mogwai after midnight they'll become horrible monsters ready to laugh at Snowhite and the seven dwarfs...really fucked up!

You have no idea how much I LOVE this creature Gizmo is obviously my favorite Mogwai /

Dude really?

I've been meaning to buy one, I saw one that actually sings and dances like Gizmo but it's expensive like hell (50 bucks)

EDIT: Found it on the internet, is this one the one you have?

I guess it's even better then, you can sleep with it and hug it I've been looking for a simple stuffed Gizmo but all I find are ugly dolls with weird looking faces and ugly ears...

A friend tried to sell me this one, it looks like a weird chewbacca

I might or might not be a geek

But the description of glasses (though mine are of the geek type ), short hair, old Candlemass T-shirt (though I had to throw that one away), fat beer belly & 40 or so years old, does sound uncannily like me.

Yeah, there's a whole country in Europe that breeds the kinds like Marcel. I do agree with Collin, that description made me think of Marcel as well. Though, his English is clean.

dismal had a chance to see my Gizmo at Hellfest (this is NOT a euphemism!). As I said, it is my travel companion and since I travel a lot I take it with me whenever I leave the country. Sounds like a silly superstition but the one time I didnt take him I had my wallet stolen...

Yes and it was very cool! I can't say I have anything for trips where I have had to fly to get there, but I always have a road trip companion that "protects" the car, haha. Anyway, I think I will watch the Gremlins movie after work now!

I think that metalheads must be very humble with their tastes and knowledge about the music.
You have the right to think "damm.. that guy sucks" But too say that it's another thing IMO.

I have tr00 people that cares about the genre.
