"I don't care as much whether or not I'm being 'offensive' a lot of the time. If honesty offends people, I'd rather just get it out of the way and stop talking to those people as soon as possible. I only hold back when I think I have something to lose, and sadly, sometimes I forget that I shouldn't care what I have to lose if it means I can't be myself."
"Notably, there are some times when it just isn't worth the hassle, but I've tried really hard not to offend friends, and looking back on it, I wish I had just gone ahead and offended them. I lost my childhood best friend when I said some shit about his girlfriend, and the only thing I regret is not just saying them to his face and telling him that he can fuck himself if I have to like his girlfriend to be friends with him, especially since his girlfriend was a giant bitch. A similar issue has come up with a lot of my old friends, because I realize that I had a nostalgic love for them that kept me from calling them out on shit."
"Most people think I'm just a dick, because I'm honest, and that I hate people who aren't like me. You are proof that's just not true. I don't, at all, accept or agree with your religious beliefs or much of your moral code, but I think you're a generally good guy. You are respectful of me, and you're willing to listen to me talk all kinds of shit about some of your beliefs. A mature human being is willing to listen and accept those things and get past them, and that's important to me, more than whether or not you agree with me."
"As for music, I'm a big music guy, but I'm more into the music than who's singing it or whatever. I don't care for concerts, because music's main function, for me, is to make other things better. Plus, I'm not at all into Springsteen, The Who, or pretty much anything people would label 'Classic Rock'. As far as I'm concerned, 'The Beatles' are great songwriters, but they are mediocre performers. I love covers of their songs, but the only song I really like when they do it, is 'Hey Jude'."
"Alicia Keys... I dunno, she bores me. Her music is... I dunno, it doesn't make me feel anything. She's a good performer, but I just don't care."
"I like all sorts of stuff, but most of the bands you talk about, and the way you talk about music, doesn't interest me. I don't care if Pop is cookie cutter or not, I often like covers more than the originals, and I don't care about 'the classics'. I equally think Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber are total shite, and can't stand most rappers (but that's hardly a rule, I like Eminem, and I think BoB is talented, he just needs someone else to write his lyrics)."
