Mom and the iPod...and a little lesson

I was at mom's house last night, for mother's day (of course). And I had my iPod with me, and eventually I pulled it out and started listening to it. For some reason I was going to have my mom listen to some electronic song on there that I thought was beautiful. If she didnt' like it I would somehow HAVE to convince her.

Then I was like "nah". I somewhat realized that mom is mom and she likes songs from the sixties and some from the seventies and that's it, really. I used to try to get her to listen to some of my music. But she's just not into that. It's not her thing.

So instead of being the one to break her out of her mold and introduce her to cool new music, i put the iPod away.

I guess it was interesting to just accept her that way...

Actually, I agree - I think that does represent a fairly important milestone for you and it _does_ mean you're actively thinking about the emotions/concerns/feelings of others.

Each person celebrates their own victories - it's probably a good thing to very supportive of that. Congrats.

AND - by the way - even though I'm a man for rock and blues (mostly 'cause I love to play it), I listen to trance alot when I work; it is fairly good at keeping me focused. Techno is fun at clubs too.....
I find it's very cool to know the roots of all music we listen to; from the beginning to the end. Your parents listen to some good music there kelson.....I think it's only possible to appreciate music if you know where it's been and where it's going.

For example....Listen to Rob Zombie? Go back one step to Ozzie. Listen to Ozzie? Go back one step to Zeppelin. Listen to Zeppelin? Go back one step to the Beatles. Listen to the Beatles? Go back one step to Elvis. Listen to Elvis? Go back one step to Howlin Wolf, etc. etc. etc.
