In the beginning of their relationship, both of them proceeded as if they had entered a very dark room and were sliding their hands hesitantly up and down all the walls, feeling for a light switch while at the same time afraid they might touch something sharp or dangerous. But from the minute they met, there was absolutely no game playing between them. Both had had more than enough of games in their lives. They were eager to get to the heart of this matter. They wanted to reach the point as soon as possible where sharing silence was just as good as sharing their life stories.

Your views on mainstream music.
You should listen to whatever the fuck you want. I don’t care if you think the music someone else likes is shit - it’s up to them. Nobody else has to listen to it. I don’t know enough about the industry side to comment, so I won’t.
What I will say though is that don’t let someone else dictate what you listen to - whether they think that Selena Gomez song you have stuck in your head is lame, or if they haven’t heard of the indie band you found yesterday. Who gives a shit. I’ve copped to much rubbish in my life from people who think my taste is any of their business.
