My father loved all different types of music. He wasn't a snob. He wasn't a purist.
I am not a music snob. If anything, my musical taste is bad by any critical standards.
In TV, film, and music there's a lot of snobbery, and I don't like it. I've never been a cultural snob.
I feel like I've become less of a music snob and less of a snob about a lot of things because I realize I came off as such a bad person because of that.
My tastes in all things lean towards the arty and boring. I like sports documentaries about Scrabble players, bands that play quiet, unassuming music, and TV shows that win awards. In that way, I am an elitist snob.
Every category has its snobs: music, books, movies. There are so many things a man is only pressured into liking or disliking.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
