I think possible metalheads will find metal and we don't need to feed it to anyone. I don't really talk about metal with the non-metal people but there are certain people who do listen to "metal" but it is crappy "metal".
The aim is to find people that already listen to metal and perhaps help them in finding 'better metal'.
(does that sound christian?)
The whole theme of this thread, 'Comunicating with Normals' very strongly implies that it is within our interest to change these 'normals'. Helping someone discover better music is one thing, especialy if they have alread shown interest, but this topic was spawned from the idea of a metal society. A metal society would be full of 'metal heads' meaning that some how you and I could possibly be a 'normal'.
What you describe is not the christian tendensy, but rather the drive that some of these posters have suggested that if you don't like the same music then them, then something is wrong for example they are
In general the "normals" tend to be comprised of trendwhores, are in complete denial, or both.... ....It seems to me that people have the perception that if they deny the truth hard enough and enough people deny it with them, it somehow becomes false... It's more sad than anything, but repulsive and irritating also come to mind a lot when discussing "the crowd."
The people you call normals are often not all that normal.
I would say that ninety percent of people on earth are followers who need to be told what to do, another 8.6% can figure out what to do if given direction, and 1.4% have a chance of finding a direction.
So some normals are worth checking out. As Varg said, they are our people... just asleep. They need waking up.
I don't mean ot pick on anyone in gerneral but I find words too feble to explain without the use of examples. A quick read of these two will establish a 'us versus them' attitude, and that people are 'just asleep. They need waking up.' is very similar to 'they want to worship, they just need guidance.' it is a rationalization of the act of conversion.' I didn't force them to woriship god, I helped them find the path. I didn't make him/her listen to metal, I just woke him/her up to the music he/she already liked. '
I probably did not illustrate my point well, and probably earned emnity from those I have quoted. for that, I apologize.
