I love music.

I write about the music I like and have purchased for the benefit of better understanding it and sharing my preferences with others.

Bad Words

I recently read a post by John Pash outlining words he does not like. He included some I am familiar with, including, in no particular order: * offal * broth * chock * hoary * verve * yadda * zither * quorum I find this fascinating, really. That some folks just love certain words, and we also hate certain words. Is it the sound? The spelling? The connotation? Incidentally, I don't like offal either. I find it puzzling for the spelling, and I don't want to eat those parts of animals. Broth sounds... funny too, not sure why, but it comes with slight discomfort. I prefer to say stock myself. Hoary isn't a word I hardly ever use, I don't hate it, but it seems like it hurts or is prickly. Uncomfortable, again. I do like chock, and I use it often. Yes, I say "It was chock full of..." I don't think I've used it any other way. Yadda Yadda harks back to Seinfeld, but I use it. A zither is an instrument. My grandmother often made reference to one. I don't dislike that word, either. Verve is a word I use a lot. I like it. It reminds me of the record company, and the groovy 70s tunes that once appeared on that label. That is all. Time to sleep.
