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.

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.

Holy good gawd THIS.

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.

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?

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

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...

2012-12-05 09:09:20 AM
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.

Although I am disappointed with EdgeRank since I never see music artists in my feed anymore. This post by T-shirt Hell made me realize why I wasn't seeing them anymore.

"Facebook's new EdgeRank algorithm ensures that only about 10% of our own fans get to see our new shirt posts (the only reason you can see this post is because we had to pay $750).

KrispyKritter: 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.


Dude, take your medication, maybe find a job or a hobby, go to counseling with or without her, but do something! I don't get why you would just wait around for death. It might help to ask yourself, if you were her, how would YOU behave around someone who was so miserable all the time? Maybe a little like she does.

I come to fark to LOL and ya bring me down, man. Cause it's all about me, y'know?

chevydeuce: I just went and listened to Owl City (on Pandora, thank you very much)....yeah, it's not something I would ever listen to again, but I'm not an asshole music snob who thinks nobody should ever listen to it...just not my cup of tea.



I think this way too.... but there's a limit.

A few weeks ago my wife gave me a list of music she wanted me to get for her. There were some pretty awful things on there, but most of that was the same stuff many normal ladies also listen to (mainstream pop garbage).

Until I got to "Selena Gomez and the Scene". That was a bit much for me... That was the only one I told her she should be ashamed about. Selena farking Gomez and the motherfarking Scene? Awful.

Why does anyone give a fark what their wife or husband listens too or watches. My wife watches shows I don't care for (Glee). I just tell her I don't like it and don't watch them. It's something she enjoys though, so I don't see the point in giving her a bag of shiat about what terrible taste in shows I think she has. That's just being an asshole.

abhorrent1: Tenatra: 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.

It's really not that hard to turn off. Certainly quicker than signing up for a second facebook account.


Doesn't it default to "ON" every time you log back in? It did in the beginning. They made it very difficult to NOT post to FB. A better solution is to "allow" it to post to FB, but make the posts "visible only to me", which is in effect the same as turning it off, but it never resets.

That is the same way I feel, Jersey Short, Teen Mom, Vampire Diaries, etc. I just put on my headphones and go into my own world. My Zune has a bunch of stuff I don't like on it but that is for the fiancee and the girls when they have the car. Their music doesn't interfere with my playlists.

Honest question...why are you still married to her if it sucks so bad?

I'll field this one: Why should KrispyKritter give her the majority of his stuff, including future income, just to get rid of her? It seems like he has a workable solution.

Yep. As the saying goes... "It's cheaper to keep her".


As a farker said in a thread a while back: 'life is short and you can't take the money with you'

Im not married so it's possible Im simply incapable of undestanding...but if a marriage becomes what krispy describes then I fail to see the point of staying together.

Just came here to say this: Spotify music service is best music service.

My wife, daughter and I share a Spotify account. It's awesome. It's on two computers, a Kindle Fire, and two Android phones. We use one account, pay the $10 a month. As long as only one of us is on it at once, it's no problem. Same with Netflix. Although, the sooner they can come out with Netflix Kids for Android, the happier I'll be.

Not all marriages end up that way. The trick is catching it early. Once you've been married 20 or 30 years, it's not as easy as breaking up with your girlfriend of 8 months. Your lives become so intertwined, you can't just walk away. Like Red says in Shawshank Redemption, You become "institutionalized".

blasterz: By Kevin Coffey
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER

Subby fails reading comprehension. The author is a columnist for the newspaper, not someone writing a letter of complaint. Dave Barry must really confuse you.


From the headline:
C) complain about it to the local newspaper?

"To", what does it mean? Though indeed it was only quotes from the wife, fark headlines can be inexact for the sake of humor.

justneal: zez: How does him not having any shows recorded force him to watch Grey's Anatomy? Can't he read a book or go for a walk outside or maybe watch something on live TV that isn't recorded?

No, the pvr holds a gun to his yambag


It's hard to understand, but there is a certain segment of the population that feel they literally must watch TV. No matter what is on, no matter if the DVR is recording 2 or 4 shows already and you have to pick one to watch because you're not allowed to watch live tv at that point, you MUST. WATCH. TV.

This is not a small segment of the population either. Do a poll among people you know, ask, "Have you ever just watched whatever show came on next, because you were too lazy to reach for the remote?" Scary results, man.

Generally, the US population is trending towards occupying 100% of their free time with passive entertainment, so this isn't just tv-specific; it could be MMORPGs or other video games, or texting, or facebooking, or whatever. I'm not saying that it's necessarily a bad thing, but it should be given the right priority. Having a fight with your spouse or kids because you can't watch the show you want to watch at that exact minute shows that your priorities are way out of whack, unless, for example, tv > people you claim to love. You may expect this sort of behavior from children playing video games, but adults ~ought~ to know better.

Of course, we all know that adults ~ought~ to act like adults, and that's rarely the case.

This statement is so sad. I know it may be cheaper to keep her, but it is just money. I got divorced 3 years ago and even though it was hard then and hard now, it was better then living with someone I couldn't stand anymore. I may be broke now, but I am happy. I spent way too long like that, just enduring, and would rather be alone then ever live like that again.

You have to pay a monthly fee to stream Spotify on your phone, so they probably wanted to get away with having it on both their phones but only paying one monthly fee.

I have an uncle that is a glutton for punishment. In a previous relationship years ago he was with a girl that talked him into buying things to the point that it exhausted his bank account. He started bouncing checks to please her and then did some time in jail for it. When the money ran out she disappeared.

I just found out from an aunt that he is now married and has a child with one that thinks you can just up and leave a job and get a better job at a moments notice. "I need you to get this job here instead of that one over there." She takes his paycheck, spends it and acts like she was the one that worked for the money.
