Hi Kaos fan,

I've done it probably a dozen times over the last three years, and I'm gonna do it again (briefly). Yep, brace yourself(ves), I'm gonna pull out the old food analogy. See, while I definitely have my preferences in terms of foods, I do find that I am open to sampling and enjoying a multitude of kinds/styles/etc. And while it certainly doesn't rank among my faves, it's kind of enjoyable for me, every once in a while, to hit a McDonalds or A & W for some quality junk food. I see music as being just like that. My preferred styles are definitely AOR, MHR, and metal. But I will listen to pretty much ANYTHING with an open ear to determine whether or not it has any merit for me or whether or not I can/do/could see myself deriving any enjoyment out of it. That is why I find myself digging some country, some pop, some punk, some classical, some blues, some jazz, some R & B, some easy listening, some dance/techno, and some of most other genres as well. I certainly wouldn't consider myself to be a big fan of any of those kinds of music, and most of what I hear turns me off more than it turns me on. But I will continue to open my ears to it just to keep up with what's out there and to keep pushing/expanding my horizons. Once again, though, when I am left to my own devices and I can choose to listen to anything, most of the time I find myself choosing "our" music.

Think for a moment about your comment about not being able to see how any fan of "our" music could possibly enjoy Pink. But this time remove the whole music thing and replace it with the whole food thing. What do you get?... "I don't see how anyone could possibly enjoy McDonalds' food." Now, no one is ever gonna claim that a Big Mac is gourmet. But that doesn't mean that, from time to time, people don't like injecting a little of that "other stuff" into their diet, does it? Of course not. Personally speaking, I REALLY do not enjoy the music of either Pink or Destiny's Child (although our DJ service owns CDs by both artists). But at the same time, I fully realize that my love of the Corrs' music or Shania Twain's music or Savage Garden's music is bound to be just as hard to understand for others out there. In the end, it all boils down to different strokes for different folks, doesn't it? Just my $0.02. Cheers.
Don
