I used to use Spotify almost exclusively, but found that the discovery was a bit lacking. Now, I'm on Soundcloud almost entirely (still have a Spotify subscription), and I discover way more music than I used to. If you're looking for pop, though, you might look elsewhere because in my experience Soundcloud is better for rap and EDM.

I used Spotify almost exclusively, but now Apple Music has done changed the game.

 

By the way, new FRIDAY CHALLENGE is up.

Growing up in San Diego there are many opportunities to learn quite a lot about this.

I listen to just about everything(well....save EDM, country and a few other genres.)
I have a CD collection in the thousands. Vinyl also in the thousands. Cassettes(from back in the day) of appr 250. And digital music(across 2 laptops and 3 external hard drives) of who knows how many gigs.

I go to a lot of music events/concerts/releases so I get to hear established/new bands perform. I listen to a lot online. I read reviews and search out current and past music from the artists. Not to mention bars, lounges, etc. I was in a store up the block from my place last week and they had on a nice track....which I didn't recognize. I asked the 2 clerks if they knew who it was. They didn't. Useless.

I actually rarely listen to music on the radio.

This is probably a longshot, but can anyone recommend a Hober or Cappelli tie for sport coat made from this linen?

I’m thinking orange or brown, but all suggestions are welcome.

Hi Ac, imo a slubby dk brown Shantung would be nice, like pic below (navy Fresco).  

Hober doesn't do Shantung, but his rough silk might do the trick.  There's no brown, but there is charcoal

 

edit:  and a plum which would do navy well imo

You might consider the "Yellow & Midnight Blue On Chocolate Atkinsons Striped Irish Poplin Tie #21."

 

Thanks, guys.  Very much appreciated.

Not a fan of pop generally, though one of my favorite musicians is Elliott Smith, and he was pretty insistent that he was pop. I may start using Pandora again.

 

My question was less about discovering music and more about exposure to it. Someone mentioned that a certain song was overplayed, and the last song I had heard so much to feel it was being overplayed was Gangnam Style.

As far as discovering music, I mostly rely on friends. Of all my favorite musicians, I think only two involved me stumbling across them in ways other than "Hey Clags, check out __________, I think you'll like them." One (Iron & Wine) was a CD I stumbled across when cleaning out my car a decade ago, left there by my sister. The other (Saycet) was at a random concert in Seoul that I randomly decided to attend. Also an awesome concert, though my wife fell asleep sitting on the floor (instrumental music puts her to sleep).

My personal definition of "nerd" is someone whose talks about obscure stuff to people who have no idea what one is talking about. As an example I was around some normal folks who were talking about cool movie music and a young lady mentioned the Jurassic Park theme. Then some nerd chimed in "well, of course, you know, John Williams!" Then everyone just stared at him.
I think a bunch of people who all know obscure stuff and talk about it, online or otherwise, are to be referred to as the more positive title of "geek."

Shazam is a good app to ID music.

I listen to pretty much anything apart from country music. Pandora is my app of choice. Gave up on my 14k plus mp3 collection when it became unmanageable

Who doesn't know John Williams?

The "Alternative Folk Dinner Party," "Trip Hop Turn Ons," and "Cooking for Hipsters" playlists are currently my favorites on Apple Music. I hate to be a shill, but Apple Music is free and definitely worth checking out for those who like discovering new, good things.

Yep. I use Shazam sometimes while watching a movie/show and need to identify a track.
I was leaving the store last week and didn't really think about using it.

I need to give it a try.

I haven't used a "Pandora" like app in a year or 2.

I suspect that in trying too hard to be diplomatic I was, instead, simply unclear.  My fault, I’m sure.

 

My point was that everyone for quite some time now has referred to the thread as GNAT, while no-one has referred  to it NGNAT that I’ve noticed.    I was actually making a modest case for changing the name so that it corresponds to actual usage.

 

That said, I wish to be quite clear:  I don’t feel strongly about it.  If people want to keep the, um, N-word as part of the name it won’t bother me.

 

Cheers,
