The Real Ben Hardin

perpetua:


The funny thing about all these confused tweets is the way that they are basically the reverse of classic “indie” snobbishness. It’s just a bunch of people embracing their extremely limited range of cultural knowledge and expecting to be congratulated for it. The thing is, while Arcade Fire may not be as mainstream as other nominees, they certainly are mainstream. Everything in music culture is so niche now that those more famous nominees would get the same “who, what?” from people at a different end of the pop culture spectrum.

Just curious… who the fuck is rosie and why should anyone care what music she listens to?
