A trend in the musical world that has been gaining in both popularity and strength in the past few years. That is not to say that it has not been present in past decades, but with the advent of the Internet and the anonymity it provides, many have come out of the woodwork to voice their opinions.

Musical elitism, simply put, is the valuing of one's own musical tastes as the standard by which all music should be made, or the standard that all others should use to choose what music they listen to. Musical elitists will oftentimes use one of the following words in their tirades against their target band: shitty, sucks, lame, terrible, or any other standard derogatory terms. Musical elitism also comes bundled with musical stereotypes, i.e., all people who listen to Linkin Park are wangsty teens, all people who listen to Evanescence are goths, all people who listen to Avril Lavigne are posers, and so on.

Disliking a band for whatever reason does not automatically make you a musical elitist; the tag comes when one begins to put their standard against others and demand that they give up their "inferior" music for much more "sophisticated" tastes.

Everyone is free to enjoy whatever music they like, from Britney Spears to Nirvana to Tool to whatever underground band you may enjoy. People's tastes will differ endlessly and said tastes ought to be respected, whether or not you like the band they enjoy. Everyone is also free to criticize any band they wish, but when one begins to demean people for what they listen to, their integrity suffers, while their standing with other elitists rises.
1: WTF? Why do you listen to shitty bands like Slipknot?
2: Maybe because I enjoy listening to it?
1: That makes no sense. You are an idiot.

American English is a version of English that actually predates British English; when the colonists were sent over to America, the language essentially "froze" because of broken contact with the British island. The linguistical isolation that ensued caused the English language to split into two main dialects: American and British English.

Contrary to popular belief, American English is not ebonic slang and it is very hard to definitively pin down American and British English, due to the fact that language constantly evolves. Slang does occasionally make its way into the long term lexicon, but only when spoken by a large percentage of the people. Therefore, it is very unlikely that gangsta speech or ebonics will ever be anything more than bastardized slang.
Words like 'fall' and 'autumn' mean the same thing, but one word is actually older than the other, and is in more common usage due to the isolation caused by the

Plugged In (pluggedinonline.com) is a subdivision of the Christian organization Focus on the Family. Plugged In Online offers reviews on movies, music, DVD releases, and television shows, as well as some book reviews and commentaries on the national media.

The loudmouths who have established the fundamentalist Christian/Republican stereotype in America (and indeed, across the pond as well). A large percentage of "Christian" families/individuals will follow the pedagogues that head both Focus on the Family and Plugged In like sheep to the slaughter. They should not be taken as the sentiment or opinion of regular, individual Christians, many whom go unheard due to the infernal roar created by the tirades of this organization.

However, Plugged In is usually distributed around the Internet as a good place to go to get a laugh, whether you're Christian or not, since even members of one group are allowed to laugh at the crazies.

In short, Plugged In has served merely to give the non-fundamentalist Christians a bad name, and have become the laughingstock of many a forum and blog.

This double disc collection of previously unreleased masters is a muffled blend of innocence and depravity.
