There's sort of a fantasy embedded in this one, of hanging around a person who will talk popular music in a critical way with you. In my world there's never been a lot of crossover between comics/animation people and avid music devourers. In general they are hard to find, increasingly so with the fading of sites like Pitchfork and the uptick in bot-generated playlists. I get it, nobody has time to care this much. Still, I met someone at a party recently who talked enthusiastically with me about our lifetime of music for half an hour, and it felt very good: like an itch I've been wanting to scratch.
