You know - people take this shit way too seriously sometimes. It's heavy,
it's forbidding, it's intense - but "scary"? Come on, now. Really. What
passes for "pop" these days - now THAT's scary.

Again - this is certainly not limited to TG. I never - and I mean NEVER - am
out in pubic without headphones on. (I also don't find TG all that conducive
to "moving about" listening, but that's just me.) But I've gotten to the
point where I get seriously agitated by having to stand in a line somewhere
and listen to the meaningless drivel going on around me.
Humanity - just say no! : >
