You Suck!!

Written by: Herzebeth

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

dude didn't you see I'm on a very sad state of mind?

Lol...yeah I got owned
Bloodshed - 30.05.2008 at 20:18  
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?
Deus Ex Machina - 31.05.2008 at 04:48  
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.
Torelli - 31.05.2008 at 11:10  
Now that is an intresting title!


But, seriously, can you do no other then laugh about it? That kind of comment would make may day complety, considering how ridiculous and laughable it is.

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?

jupitreas - 01.06.2008 at 19:18

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
jupitreas - 01.06.2008 at 19:39  
lmao, that gizmo is totally ridiculous haha.

this is the one i have:


it looks basically the same as the movie gizmo, and it sits on top of a speaker in my room (when we're not travelling that is).

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.

well I took the liberty of browsing through your pics in the gallery...you look more like an entrepeneur than a geek dear metal o' Friend hehehe...though I can see how Collin said you fit the description LOL...

come to think of it, the old guy that raped me did had an odd Dutch accent...uhm...makes me wonder...
Ivor - 02.06.2008 at 23:23  
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.

From Herz buying a Mogwai album - Mogwai being the race of Gizmo

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!

Let's bet he hasn't.
Mr. Doctor - 29.06.2008 at 02:35  
Lol... that guy was a bastard.

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.
Spyroid - 04.08.2008 at 15:28

Next time, take a deep breath while looking at the person dead in the eyes and say "Don't ever speak to me.". He will probably walk away faster if you haven't showered in a few years and smell like a rotting corpse. Works for me

Elio - 08.10.2008 at 23:25  
what an idiot... Carcass actually sound heavier after listening Mogwai
ThunderAxe1989 - 09.10.2008 at 02:17  
Herzebeth, I'm sorry, I couldn't help but find your story funny!

I wouldn't be upset if I were you though, at least not this long after it occured.
It's okay to be loyal to True Metal! Hell yeah! But to be closed minded and act like some right-wing motherfvcker is never cool though.

I adore the more true and genuine metal too.....but I also like Aggrotech, Old-School Rap & G-Funk, Reggae, Classic/Psychedelic Rock.......I'm listening to a rare Blues song by Jimi Hendrix right now. But I still stay loyal to real metal music, so I see not the problem.

Ultimately, that's his bad, not yours man.
Peace.

I would have just said "Your store sucks" and smashed the CDs on the ground... LEG IT!!!
Gothya - 12.11.2008 at 23:58  
You right, actually when i got nothing better to say i use that word, many (many) times, in fact, i use it everytime i finish a sentence, because that´s become a usual word in my vocabulary; now, i kinda think like you in this case, cuz there´s a lot of times and many of us that think all we listen to is better than others do and dont give the chance to accept that; though i gotta admit i cant bear all types of music and in someway i´m a bit like this dude cuz (for example) if i see someone wearing a metal t-shirt buying pop music cds of stuff like that, i will probably say 'u suck' wich also doesnt mean i´m totally wrong because is also true that there´s a lot of guys whom dont like metal but they wear those clothes just to pretend something wich its not them just like there´s other ones wich like the desings of the clothes and it´s valid too

however the owener was a freak cuz he cant say those kind of comment cuz like u said, that´s the stuff he´s selling and he cant judge anyone because of their likes; that´s wasnt good
he sucks

No man, ya cyan't do that, that only leads to more trouble and more stress.......


Listening to one kind of music only is not good for the soul lol....
Since my last post, I got into Indie Pop/Rock.

I've become incredibly fond of other Caribbean music besides Reggae such as: Soca and Rake N' Scrape (Bahamian music).

Also I been toying with some experimental electro stuff too.

My first love will always lie with Metal, but ya can't be a Nazi who jacks off to it lol.
I hope Herzebeth STILL doesn't feel bad.

It's funny how so many metalheads claim to be open-minded but ultimately act like the shop owner - castigating and ridiculing anyone whose tastes fall outset the umbrella of their own.

and non-chain record store employees are often the worst.

i remember at the local place here (the one that carries the shit you're not likely to find a best buy or whatever chain stores still exist) once i went in with some friends one night to pick up some cd's. we got up to the counter with our purchases and White Zombie's cover of "Children of the Grave" was on the store stereo.

i remarked, "oh, it's the cool white zombie song." to my friend.

the young twentysomething clerk whose music tastes were clearly superior to my own looked down at me from his cash register pulpit and said "it's Black Sabbath" in a snotty voice as if he were educating a 1st grader.

i looked back at him and answered, "no, i'm pretty sure that's White Zombie. it might be the Sabbath song off 'Master of Reality', but i'm pretty sure that it's White Zombie playing it.", then smiled.

was nice to put him in his place.

the one thrill of hitting the record store is not knowing exactly what you'll find - it's like a treasure hunt. it might be easier to just order the albums i want off the internet, but it's more fun to hunt.

the one major drawback of going to any indy store which cares lesser "appreciated" genres of music - i.e. metal or punk - is having to deal with the annoying know-it-all prick behind that counter that passes judgment on your purchases. not all of 'em are like that, but too many are way too similar to Jack Black's hilarious character (caricature) in "High Fidelity."
Daggon - 12.02.2009 at 02:42  
Oh I know how does it feels, I was a man like that, until I met someone who changed me in many ways, and thanks to her I became tolerant and really open minded. Still sometimes I say stupid things like that old man, but just when I really need to be like that... or sometimes when I'm drunk... Whatever, let's be open minded, we cannot live just with metal, yeah, like Gigginova said, I'm loyal to Metal, but I can listen to other great things like Jazz, Classic, Blues, Rock music, sometimes Rap and other things like anime music or José José hehe (a popular singer here in Mexico). I promise I won't be an asshole anymore (well... not always, sometimes we need an asshole right? ... right?!?).

Oh christ, no kidding. Theres this one store I go to called Sloth Records, they mostly carry underground punk and alt rock that takes up out 3/4 of the store, then about 1/4 metal, which mostly consists of USBM and Hardcore type stuff. But you wouldn't imagine the dirty looks I get when I walk in wearing one of my Ramones shirts.

let's be honest dude....you CAN'T live with nothing but metal, come on, that's the most closed minded thing I've ever read from you.

You dig The Mars Volta...they are not Metal....not at all Metal...
Marcel Hubregtse - 12.02.2009 at 21:40  
Maybe I am close-minded when it comes to music outside of metal, so what?
Metal has enough variety in it to keep me interested. I am open-minded within metal but close-minded outside of it.

As for The Mars Volta they have enough metal/hard rock (=metal no mattter what the revisionists say ) within them for me to consider them metal/hard rock.
Himann - 24.02.2009 at 14:58  
People are often so much more than the music they listen to. While I may be quick to criticize the bands I wouldn't really criticize the person for listening to them. Having said that, I suppose that too is an indirect insult. Either way, I'm a biased man.
