Aye, forget it.
I'm sure midget_man has a carefully curated collection of records; it sounds like he has impeccable music taste, and more importantly, the artists he listens to are validated by the world, because that's really important. He made an honest effort - he spent a couple of minutes Googling a band and invested several more minutes to evaluate a band he had bias against (because the world hasn't heard of it, and therefore, the band isn't worthy...but he has an open mind), and he wasn't blown away. What more could you ask for from a true music lover? I think he is secretly more accomplished than Juno award winners, but in his spare time, he offers his opinion on the state of modern music festivals on an Internet forum, because other people need to be enlightened. It's not a rant. Yes, it's a bit rude to go onto a thread to dismiss artists that other thread readers clearly enjoy, but it's for our own good.
We. Are. Not. Worthy. Seriously thinking about burning my music collection now. I've wasted my life!
