While im here in Southern California for a couple more days i figured i would hang out with some old friends.
So after work i called them up and we hit a billiards bar, the place was packed for a Thursday night; there were about 20 tables and only one or two were open / plus the 30 - 50 people at the bar.
So as we enter the music that is playing is mostly mainstream hiphop and Britney Spears type pop (no idea what it really was, but it all sounded the same), we start playing pool and the crappy music is really throwing off my aim. So i head over to the jukebox and throw in five bucks, this gave me 15 songs; surprisingly they had the entire dream theater / symphony X / opeth discography.
I started it out with "a change of seasons" and then picked random Symphony X songs and a couple of Opeth songs afterwords.
As soon as the Dream Theater song started the entire place got really annoyed for what ever reason; there were at least five different people that threw money into the jukebox because they thought i only selected one song
So after DT finishes I think the next song was Inferno by Symphony X, at this point at least five tables left because i could hear them say "wtf this music sucks" or something along those lines. One girl even came up to me and asked how many songs i picked and why was that last song 30 minutes long
By the time the Symphony X song was over with, a couple of more people went by the jukebox and dumped coins into it hoping to play some other type of music.
The third song was Deliverance by Opeth, as soon as the growling started at least 80% of the place cleared out, it was crazy.
Any way for the rest of the night my 15 songs lasted well into close (long prog metal songs) and my friends and i had a blast playing pool to prog metal. Every one else either left, or was visibly pissed off.
Some how i managed to troll an entire bar with my "bad" music selection.
Fuck 'em. Not your fault you have better musical taste.
