Probably this already existed but like i'm gonna go dig......

Me, french band called Indochine and a record called 7000 danses from 1987. I was 9. Very famous in the french world since their debut in 1981, arguably the most popular french band ever in fact (maybe you know them, maybe you dont, no idea how well recognized is the name outside of the french world), but have sucked for like 20 years, like really sucked (despite being still extremely popular though they had a huge slump in terms of popularity for about ten years in the 90's). They started new wave, very synthpop at first, sounded a little more organic after a while. They sounded kinda like...well here's a video of a single off that record, probably still my favorite song of theirs (it doesn't really kick in until about 40 secs in, the intro is not indicative):

<iframe frameborder="0" width="480" height="270" src="//www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/x3q1z3" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /><a href="http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3q1z3_indochine-la-machine-a-rattraper-le_music" target="_blank">Indochine La Machine &agrave; Rattraper le Temps (1987)</a> <i>by <a href="http://www.dailymotion.com/indochineofficial" target="_blank">indochineofficial</a></i>

I still like all their 80's stuff. In the 90s they tried a britpop sound. In the 2000's...well fuck knows what sound that is but they basically owe their later life popularity to taking on emo aesthetics more or less (image wise). suddenly, french teenagers liked them (again), despite the fact that half the band was over 40 (every original member but the singer is gone). Total midlife crisis bullshit.

Despite their later suckiness It would have been a decent start on my musical journey if it wasn't that the SECOND record i ever bought was....Debbie Gibson's Electric Youth....obviously i still had a long way to go.

I just remembered Melissa Auf Der Maur actually did a song with them in the early 2000's.... so did Brian Molko. Gainsbourg directed one of their 80's video but while i like the song, the video kinda blows (then again it was the 80's)

(The first records I got were audio books/stories/radio plays.) First music LPs were Christmas presents, '87.

- Leonard Bernstein
- Whitney Houston

My family told me what the lyrics were about, but I didn't care much. All I wanted was to DANCE.

My parents got me Five's first album on cassette, then their second album Invincible on CD for Christmas the year it came out. Those were the only two albums I had for a while, then I unceremoniously threw them out, wanting to distance myself from them in a same way that a child might grow out of their old baby toys.

I didn't religiously listen to music for a while until I was 14, when I bought Green Day - American Idiot and Good Charlotte - The Chronicles of Life and Death

The cycle repeated itself with all the pop punk bands I used to like.

First cassette - Really hard to say, probably Weird Al Even Worse when I was like 9 or 10.

First CD - I think I bought Sgt. Pepper when I was 12 or something, at the Mall of America.

First vinyl - I remember most of my LPs were hand me downs, so I don't think I really bought anything. Might have eventually been either a Lifter Puller or a pAper chAse 7" at one of their shows when I was 19 or 20.

first tape had to be weird al's greatest hits when i was 10 or 11, probably in '89.

first cds i got were the guns n' roses' use your illusion albums. shortly after i acquired a bunch by abusing columbia house/bmg.

first lps i bought were at a flea market type thing when i was 15 or 16, grateful dead's 'terrapin station' and zeppelin's 'song remains the same'. it was at least 10 years before i got to listen to them properly.

Oh i see.

Well yes I said in the other thread I actually understand the need to have physical things.

Records it's just... I don't see the point in owning records much since what you want from them (ok what I want) is the music which is not a physical thing. The rest is superfluous to me. But i guess one could say what you want from a book is the text which you could have on a digital format... Look i don't know, you want me to say im a hpocrite!? FINE IM A HYPOCRITE! LEAVE ME ALONE.

Maybe someday ill have a tablet and realise i don't have a use for physical books anymore. For now i prefer reading that way. Even if i hate opening book editions i prize because i don't want to damage them........

I actually stopped buying books like 2 years back though cause i realised in spite of myself that it seemed i liked the idea of owning books more than i liked reading them

come to think of it though..........I suppose the first recordings I owned were vinyls...we had a mickey mouse turntable. It would only play 7 inches. Someone gave us loads of 7 inches they didn't want anymore. but i was very young and the only tune I remember playing on it was Bay City Rollers' Saturday Night. I still like this song I don't care who knows it. That's called catchy right there.

It's a bullshit defense though because at this point I write better English than French. And that's not even a lie. I make tons more mistakes in French now.


Though.... the S thing... like I used to say cereals or hairs (as in my hair, on my head) for years. in French if there's many there's always an s (or x) so this always confuses me when some words aren't pluralized. though I suppose technically one should say vinyl records

Trust me though in a war of nonsensical grammatical rules, French will win every time over English. That's why I like English better. It's a more well thought out language, more elegant, just complex enough but without too much unnecessary bullshit. I can't write three sentences in French without making at least one mistake and that's all I spoke or wrote until I was like 20 (well no....we had some english classes but you don't learn English that way, proof being that no one in my family speaks English..but I mean I didn't communicate with anyone in English before then)

French language is regulated by a bunch of academic twats at the Academie de la Langue Francaise and it seems their goal has always been to make the language complicated for non speakers. And probably trying to prevent people who didn't finish high school from writing properly. While in English you're reading literature in Hs, We're still learning grammatical rules in grade 12.

who says I don't pay. Digital doesn't mean i get it all for free. Though i haven't paid for all i have no. It depends. I haven't given any money to a major in years that's for sure.

A record is a record. An album could be any format.

Tangent: i was thinking the other day how the only reason i got seriouslyinto vinyl was because at the time many underground bands were releasing stuff as vinyl only and this was before digital downloads were even a thing. Therefore Finding and buying the record was the onlynway you could hope to hear the music. At least today you have dedicated rippers or download codes.

First cassette: I am fairly certain it was Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hell. I still love how over the top and cheesy that album is.

First CD: Green Day's Dookie. I remember distinctly because my sister and I both wanted it so bad but we waited until we could both buy our own copies so as to not drive the other insane with jealousy/murderous rage.

First record: Other than the SP stuff I bought off of eBay before I even had a record player, I am pretty sure it was Pink Floyd's The Wall and some Steely Dan album at a garage sale. I had heard the Pink Floyd album but mainly bought the Steely Dan record because it had an ugly cover and I wanted to show everybody how ugly it was.

The Dangerous video collection on VHS was pretty much my first exposure to music outside of Sesame Street. My brother and I would watch it all the time when I was like 5 or 6.

We had kiddy competitions in imitating dance moves from the Moonwalker movie. Still love it.

i felt this way about michael in 2002 and wrote this:

OXFORD, England (Reuters) - Michael Jackson made a tearful appeal to the world to introduce a children's bill of rights that would ensure parents read bedtime stories to their sons and daughters and make them feel loved.

The King of Pop hobbled on crutches onto the stage of Oxford University's venerable debating chamber on Tuesday night -- he broke his right foot in a fall last week -- to promote his "Heal the Kids" charity and call for a renewal of parent-child bonds.

In a lecture punctuated by tears, Jackson urged children to forgive their parents as he spoke of the difficulty of growing up under the spotlight of stardom.

"My father is a tough man, and he pushed my brothers and me hard, from the earliest age, to be the best performers we could be," Jackson, 42, told an audience of students and journalists, his voice faltering.

"I wanted more than anything else to be a typical little boy. I wanted to build tree houses, have water balloon fights and play hide and seek with my friends. But fate had it otherwise...."

His choice of a good cause could raise some eyebrows -- in 1993 a 12-year-old boy accused Jackson of sexually molesting him.

you think? raise eyebrows? more like filled with rage. reading this headline sent me into a fit of rage, where i went out and bought a gun. i went to the local k-mart and mr. retired boat dock worker with shaking hands was working behind the counter. i went up and told him my predicament, and how angry i was.

"sir, i need to purchase a weapon"

"well, son, there is a new process for purchasing weapons.. we will need you till fill this out."

"it's always something new, isn't it? i just want to kill michael jackson, and be on my merry way. do you have a bb-gun that penetrates the skin? i mean, something. i know you guys have swiss knives and squirt guns. i need a power weapon"

"did your parents read you bedtime stories when you were a child?"

"yes, lots of them. far too fucking many. i can't go a day without thinking about the 'things that go bump in the night'. i want to shoot my parents too. are you going to help me out or not?"

"hold on while i page a clerk."

i'm sick and tired of listening to what michael jackson has to say. he got away with molesting a giraffe in the 80's, and a toddler in the 90's, and now he's right there when the shit goes down for his valuable commentary on how we should fix our problems. i don't even find it funny how ridiculous his proposal is. read bedtime stories to your children. a bill of rights?

"I wanted more than anything else to be a typical little boy. I wanted to build tree houses, have water balloon fights and play hide and seek with my friends. But fate had it otherwise...."

COME ON FUCKHEAD! you wanted to be a typical little boy, but you turned yourself into a freak of a grown man, by your own free will. and now you can have your fucking tree houses with monkies in them, and you can hire all the pre-pubescent kids you want to molest and have them play in it, and have little pedophilic water balloon fights (wet tshirt contests is what he really wanted)... GAH... fate had it otherwise. you chose to burn off every natural feature that was on your face. michael needs to go play hide and go fuck himself.

As the King of Pop swept in from the rainy darkness outside, there were audible gasps from the audience.

Jackson wore his trademark black and white suit and pushed back curtains of jet-black hair as he began to speak in his almost child-like voice.

He argued that a "Universal Children's Bill of Rights" should be introduced in every home.

The Oxford Union debating society is no stranger to controversy and Jackson referred in his lecture to illustrious guests who had graced the stage before him, including Albert Einstein and Malcolm X.

Outside in the rain, fans from across the globe had gathered to catch a glimpse of their idol.

"People from all over the world follow him everywhere, that must be love and love can't be a bad or dangerous thing," said German Dorothy Debuhr, 42, her face daubed with blue paint and glittering with gold stars.

Jackson's big hits belted out from a nearby radio.

"He is a phenomena, he is the ultimate mega-star, said student Catherine Wendsey, 20, holding a home-made banner welcoming Jackson to the university town.

Jackson has two children of his own by his former wife Deborah Rowe, who filed for divorce in 1999. He was also married briefly to Elvis Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie.

The singer was accompanied by psychic spoon-bender Uri Geller, at whose wedding he will be best man on Wednesday.

Jackson spent 16,000 pounds ($23,470) hiring part of nearby Blenheim Palace for a celebration dinner on Tuesday night, the Daily Telegraph reported.

It said servants of the Duke of Marlborough rolled out the red carpet for Jackson, but sprayed the thick pile with disinfectant -- a reminder that even the rich and famous cannot escape Britain's fight against a major outbreak of the highly contagious foot-and-mouth livestock disease. ($1-.6818 Pound)

stupid fuck broke his foot. probably because it was black. apparently breaking limbs changes their color. now.

all we need is gary glitter starting a child care center.

kill yourselves now.
