If you don't listen, I highly suggest it, it's one of only two non-wrestling podcasts I listen to. Anyways, this specific episode was with Peaches. You know her, the girl who sings "Fuck the Pain Away."
And in this same episode, he's talkin' about his girlfriend's art exhibit and how he appreciates it, even if he doesn't fully get it... not just her art but all art because he believes he can open his mind up and be subjective and say "Okay, I don't get it, but way to go," and move on if he doesn't like it.
He says that he felt similar and wanted to open his mind up about Peaches' shit; her music and performance... which maybe y'all might think this is weird to say but I think she's a lot like Amanda Palmer, a very IN YOUR FACE kind of feminism and sexuality, which is sexy but also a little threatening to my masculinity, 'cause, goddammit, I'm supposed to be the one humping and thrusting! But now they are and it turns me on but I also like listening to them even if I don't want to think about sex! ARGH ME NOT LIKE WOMENISH IDEAS!!!
So Maron says, "Why be a slave to your culturally and socially ingrained inhibitions, that you probably don't even realize you have, why not push them out a bit? Why not open your heart a bit to things you don't understand if it's a safe environment to do so?"
AND THAT'S THE WAY THE WORLD NEEDS TO BE, MAN! Not just about music or other types of art but about everything. If you don't like something, you don't have to shit all over it. If you don't believe in something, you don't have to ruin everyone else's lives and try to make everyone like you. Just open your heart a little to everyone and if you don't like what they give you, say "Okay, I'm cool. You go on with what you're doing, I'll be over here."
Hopefully, enough people would open up their hearts and minds and we could all get along in a "safe environment" and get rid of socially and culturally ingrained inhibitions, but every fuckin' day I just see a few more people separating instead of opening up.
There's not enough people who are shades of gray. Everyone's too black and white.
