to twee or not to twee?

although sean and i like a lot of the same music (eg. we're both huge linkin park fans), i definitely think some of my musical preferences are too twee for him.

but i dig on the sounds of sweet, dainty, nostalgic indie pop with jangly guitars and infectious melodies. not every single time i listen to my itunes, mind you. sometimes i want to blast my ears with music with an edge.

still unsure what is twee? i think chicago tribune reporter christopher borrelli summed it up best: "the hallmarks of modern twee - director wes anderson, indie rock, cupcakes..."

sometimes you need pure and innocence in this rough and aggressive world. and especially on a lazy sunday afternoon.
