My younger brother likes to listen to Israeli music.

Interesting. What type and why did he get into it?

Sounds like you rely on pop music as an engine to make friends. That because you have no social skills. That's probably the real issue. Don't do that. Rely on music that way. Get some social skills. But since were on the subject...make up your mind! Either be fake and pretend to like what folks you...

I have a Tumblr, a Twitter, and an Instagram and a few other website accounts all dedicated to my special interest. I think it can be a great outlet. Those websites have helped me find others who share my love and they don't get tired of talking about it. I doubt any other non-Jewish/non-Israeli pe...

If you have to ask the question the answer is yes. NEXT!

I guess people will see it as a sign of autism. Just like enjoying Danish music was seen as a sign. Anything I enjoy too much will be seen as autistic.

I've tried it, too. Just today I was on Google looking for forums to suit my interests. It's not the same, though, at least for me. There's still a need to unload that information somehow, and that's not to mention how hard it is to find communities for some more obscure interests. They say that th...

So I’m one of those people who is painfully aware of how little people care about my special interests. So I often shitpost a lot about my special interest on less serious online communities. I do this to avoid talking too much about special interests in real life or more serious online communities,...

Mongolian throat singing (seems to be just a novelty to most people, but I actually enjoy it)

I enjoy that sometimes as well. Sadly I overlistened to it, so now I’m tired of it.

Interesting. After being harassed and stalked like crazy I really got into listening to Tuvan throat singing for a few months. It gave me a chill and isolated feeling without being boring. It also had some aggression. Perfect soundtrack for someone dealing with relentless stalkers. Unfortunately I’...

Spent the year between high school and uni practising Tuvan throat singing and designing machinima for obsolete RTS games. Happy times. Interesting.

Both Finnish and Hebrew are non Indoeuropean languages, so I would expect both to be hard to learn for an English speaker. No cognant words. Nada. That’s what makes Finnish such a great language to compare to Hebrew. I thought Hebrew was supposed to be easier than Finnish, but I found Finnish easie...

Keep us posted on how you do. I am curious if you will be able to learn Hebrew. Best of luck to you. I find it very interesting that you found Finnish easy because I have friends who are Finns and they say that Finnish is one of the most difficult languages to learn. I didn’t necessarily find Finni...

Though I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with the music of a particular country, I do own music in other languages. I would say I have a strong interest in certain bands. At one time, these bands may all be from the same or similar countries, then I'll move on to somewhere else. As to how or why; who kno...

Does anyone else have these sorts of obsessions? If so I’m wondering what countries and how people got them. I’ve had them for nearly ten years. The first obsession I kind of had was with Swedish music. It started because I noticed I enjoyed a few Swedish bands. I thought it was weird how much Swedi...

actually i have not considered making up "fake interests" before. however, now that you mention it, maybe that is a good idea. at more than one job interview someone asked for my hobbies. and i did not tell them the bathroom thing. yes i said reading. but reading is so passive and lame. a...

I have seen a number of your pics that you have posted. And you are rather cute and attractive . Don't know about the manic and pixie part since I haven't seen you in person. And from your posts about your autistic special interestscombined with your looks I can well imagine someone finding you &qu...

I sometimes do to avoid talking about special interests and talk about something I’m mildly interested in instead. Like if someone asks what new bands I’ve been listening to I’ll mention some Turkish stuff even though I’m far more interested in Israeli music. I genuinely enjoy some Turkish stuff, so...
