Bad taste in music can be a funny thing

I have been coming across several blog-mate's posts about (bad) music Color Me Horrified... or featuring (good) music videos, and it made me think about a website I found several years ago called You Have Bad Taste In Music. This guy with the pseudonym Eman Laerton (ha ha-funny) actually went to concert venues and berated people about their choice of attending concerts by such acts as: Justin Timberlake, Ruben Studdard, Nickelback, Hoobastank, and Linkin Park, wearing a crude disguise of raincoat or trench coat,(?) shorts, a funny-looking military type helmet circa WWI, a crate to stand atop, and armed with a megaphone. Occasionally, some of the people (especially at the Train concert hall-who would think the fans of Train would be rowdy, combative drunks? Maybe they were just really embarrassed to be seen outside a Train concert!) get mad and threaten him. Most of the people waiting to go into these concerts laugh and get a kick out of his statements that the PABT (People Against Bad Taste) have deemed them to be suffering from chronic bad taste in music. He's funny, and maybe to those people attending those concerts an eye-opener to that bad taste in music that they have subscribed to with their ticket purchases. He has not posted any new videos lately. I think that's a shame. There is still quite a lot of bad taste in music out there! Give us some more Scientific Proof findings!

On his website, there are Quick Time clips available, but I am posting some clips that I found on YouTube by "Eman Laerton."

I applaud anyone who is a nonviolent shit-disturber. Good find!

Chris: I like the way he does it-or did it-he blew that asshole guy off with non-violence, and I think "Eman" made him look the fool! Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate you checking it out!
