  •  I remember when I was a young fangirl (0+ / 0-)

    getting mad at critics who were at the same show I was who dissed the show. I asked an older friend, "What makes critics experts, anyway?" His answer was, "They do this for a living. They see tons of (bands, films, etc.) every year." He was right. When I got to the point where I had seen my 1800th band (and that was around 2000 or more shows), I was pretty jaded. I knew what I liked and what I didn't (though that shifted occasionally) and was usually unimpressed by bands I found unoriginal unless they made up for it with skill, showmanship, or even just plain enthusiasm.
