There's a type of person that I shall refer to as a "Mighty Morphin' Genre Chameleon". You know the type I'm talking about; they pick up a new genre -- and everything that comes with it -- at the drop of a hat. Sometimes it's to make others like them, sometimes (as in the case illustrated), it's to make a particular guy like them.
In mistakes of my past, I've done this before. I've tried to be something different so that people would like me more. This is, and always has been, a fools game.
Not too sound too "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and gosh darnit people like me", but being yourself is the best way to go. Not everyone's gonna dig ya, and maybe even a good number of people will dislike you. But the ones that dig what you're into, those relationship will be of a much higher quality, and much more rewarding.
