@pillowcat could I ask for a heads-up on what's on the other side of that link? context has me thinking it might be music and we Can Not Do music if it has lyrics, for complicated reasons
@Felthry it's September by Earth, Wind & Fire
so yes, music
@pillowcat Are there vocals in it?
@pillowcat very definitely not for me then, sorry
@pillowcat we just have an immediate, very intense, negative reaction to singing and i don't really know why but it's probably related somehow to auditory processing disorder stuff
@Felthry it's alright, everyone's different
wide appeal is different from (impossible) universal appeal
@pillowcat yeah I just feel kinda like we have to explain because it's such an unusual and very specific thing to have such a strong reaction to (it's in large part why we never click links without asking what's in them if they look at all video-y)
