In fairness, that's very like going into the bedroom and taking a big, steaming shiat on your pillow and leaving it there: both are annoying, gross, inconvenient to remove, and might get you seriously judged if seen by others.

The only real difference is no one is likely to fall asleep or die of boredom while taking a shiat on someone's pillow, but the same cannot be said of listening to Owl City.

First World Problems: Things came to a head when she listened to the pop band Owl City. Spotify posted to Matt's Facebook account that he had been listening to Owl City, Carly Rae Jepsen and other sugary pop groups. That didn't sit well, especially considering he's a drummer in some rock bands that definitely don't lean toward pop sounds.

"He was the one that begged me and begged me to use his account and use his own playlists," she said. "When I did it, he got all bent out of shape because he didn't appreciate my terrible taste in music."

His indie rock buddies and other friends mocked him mercilessly.


1. Be a man
2. Tell your stupid hipster indie rock friends to go fark themselves.
3. Turn off the option to post what you're listening too to facebook. No one gives a shiat what you're listening too anyway
4. Stop liking what I don't like
5. Profit?

Holy good gawd THIS.
What a f*cking pansy.
People take music way WAY too seriously. If you're offended that people like music you don't like, it's time to realize you have severe confidence and self-esteem issues.

My wife and I have our own separate accounts on the computers at home. That way, we can set everything up the way we want to set it up, and have things our own way. And no, we're not keeping secrets from each other- we know each others' passwords for the computer itself, and usually the one has to log the other out before using the computer next. We did it so that we can set things up however we like without affecting the other. If the couple in the article have completely different tastes in music, why the fark are they sharing a spotify account? Are they that tech- afraid that the idea of logging out of one account and logging in to another worries them? There are actually people that go to counseling for this? Jesus! The solution is simple: get separate accounts if your tastes are that incompatible. Same thing with the facebook BS. My wife's cousin and her husband do this. Hubby is a youth pastor, and he's fairly young and good- looking. So some of the girls in his group were being a bit flirty with him on FB. They decided to share an FB account to put a stop to it. I suppose it works for them, but it wouldn't have been that hard for him to explain the the girls that that was inappropriate behavior even on FB, and that he would block them if they kept doing it. Problem solved.

Yeah, holy shiatballs, God forbid your buddies see that you like something they don't consider "manly" or whatever.

I mean, that's what the point of the article was, but...wow. This guy is a douche. So's this one:

Ben Reynolds and his wife, Nikki, also share a DVR. Mostly, things are fine, but he occasionally fills up the box with too many episodes of "Two and a Half Men" or she forgets to record a sporting event for long enough (sometimes, they go over their timeslot and the DVR will stop recording).

It has led to arguments.

"It also stinks that it actually forces me to sometimes watch 'Grey's Anatomy,'" Reynolds said.


Truly, the world is coming to an end.

I feel sorry for the guy if he and his wife have kids and the family use a shared Netflix account.

Who am I kidding, this guy's probably going to die a lonely bachelor.

So I opened up Spotify and checked out Owl City. That was pretty terrible. Still it is sad though that someone really cares so much about what their friends think about the music they listen to. How hard is it to say that your wife uses your account?

author hasn't been married very long. my wife left my bed yeeeears ago, set up her own bedroom, she doesn't need me snoring and farting on her when she has to get up for work in the morning. the honeymoon was over before most assholes on the internet were even born.

share a PC with my wife? what are you, high? we don't even eat dinner together. grow up. marriage is nice for a short time then life sucks and you play the 'who's gonna die first?' waiting game. insurance policies are the gamble that always pays, my friends. winner takes all.

I find it difficult to like any singer that meticulously pronounces every syllable as if they're instructing a class in diction.

Like Owl City, or Suzanne Vega, or GG Allin.

Wup, excuse me....let that last one sneak in there accidentally. But it's good fit. GG was the epitome of courteous behavior, tasteful performances, and good diction.

They do, however, sometimes have issues about sharing it with their daughter, 2-year-old Claire.

J: CLAIRE?!?!
C: Claire. It's a family name.
J: Oh, it's a fat girl's name.
C: Oh, thank you.
J: You're welcome.
C: I'm not fat.
J: Well not at present, but I can see you really pushing maximum density. See I'm not sure if you know this, but there are two kinds of fat people: there's fat people that were born to be fat, and there's fat people that were once thin but became fat... so when you look at 'em you can sorta see that thin person inside. You see, you're gonna get married, you're gonna squeeze out a few puppies and then, uh...

Sharing accounts is no big deal for the missus and I. We share iTunes account because I had an iTunes account already and farking Apple makes it onerous to have multiple accounts. All our music is on one comp and backed up, yes even her Celine Dion albums . . . (she sometimes has pretty terrible taste in music.) She has her own playlist with all her stuff in it.

Netflix isn't an issue, we each have stuff particular to us saved in the instant que. When one of us is watching something the other has no interest in we go do something else. This is what adults who co-habitate do. The people discussed in the article are immature and stupid.

We also both view social networks with revulsion so nothing to worry about there.

When Future Mr Mouse and I first moved in together I got weirdly possessive of my Netflix account. Mostly because it was screwing up my recommendations from the hours of bad anime and science fiction he'd watch (no, seriously, ranging from mediocre to bad in both categories) and he would on occasion put some DVDs on the queue ahead of stuff I had been anticipating first. Now I just live with my screwed up movie recommendations and he places movies he wants in the #2-4 spots.

Spotify is a music streaming service. Say there is an album you are interested in, you can look it up and listen to the whole album the day it comes out at no cost. Their music library is also farking huge and listening to music will generate income for the rights holders. IMO it blows Pandora and Grooveshark out of the water.

Jettero: Don't post what you listen to on FB? This is hard?


Spotify likes to share what you are listening to with your friends. I created a second facebook account just so I wouldn't have that nonsense on my profile.
