Yes, "to thine own self be true" is a phrase repeated over and over until it becomes a tiresome cliche, and yet there are many who just don't seem to grasp it. They follow the crowd and don't think for themselves. They do something simply because everyone else is doing it. That never seemed like a good enough reason for me. My interests do not follow the latest fashions, and if they just happen to match, it is not because I am a follower. More often than not, however, I am not doing whatever is "cool". Being cool is overrated. To cite an example, let's take dubstep "music". Apparently it's cool. If you genuinely like it, carry on I suppose, but I don't get it. I won't try to get it. I've heard a few samples, and it just doesn't seem like music. It has no melody. It is unappealing to me. It seems that humanity has a very, very loose definition of "music" and it can be just any sound that "artists" try to sell to the public. I read somewhere on the web, "It took me forever to get into dubstep." Is it possible, then, that you just don't like it? There's no harm in that. The fad will pass soon anyway. Why waste your time and limit yourself to the trendiest trash (if you believe it to be trash) when you could be listening to something you like? It's not like listening to dubstep is a moral obligation. This doesn't just apply to music, either, but culture in general. Be your own culture.
