I've garnered a lot of criticism from people who don't understand the concept of music being a universal language. I listen to a lot of JRock, and I've had people tell me things like "oh, you listen to that Chinese shit? You don't even understand the words, how can you enjoy it?", and one of my personal faves is "Chinese musicians look gay!". First of all, they're Japanese, and second of all if you're going to be spreading the xenophobe vibe into my atmosphere then you better step! And third, the one who inspired me to pick up the guitar happens to be one of the most beloved musicians in Japan, he's on my avatar btw (R.I.P, hide).
