I don't have a particular music taste. I just kind of let music happen to me. I really resent the flat-out despising country music that seems faddish for any young person who grows up in an area where it's popular, though. It's not my favorite thing, but I think it's kind of the result of a lot of unfair cultural prejudices that this kind of thing kind of must be written off as all-bad. I think it's a kind of pressure to push away cultural heritage, even though - admittedly - a lot of country, especially bro-country, sucks.

I know that Spotify availability is typically phased in by country. Like, it's a Swedish company or something, and then the UK got it, and I found out about it through some kind of campaign that advertised it as this popular thing in the UK now being available in the US. For a while, anyway, it was not available in Canada. They might have made it available in Canada at some point, but at least a couple of years ago it was definitely not supposed to work in Canada. Also I don't know if you've synced anything from Spotify to be available offline? If you did that, that would probably still work, but if it's new stuff then it's at least not preventing you from doing so. I dunno if Canada has legit spotify now or not, though.

People used to do some kind of Netflix hacking where they would piggyback off existing accounts without total account theft, and it would happen to me a lot.

It either believes you are still in America because your computer is feeding it that information or Canada has Spotify now.

It's odd that America got Spotify first because apparently Canada had much looser music-copying laws and that kind of thing because of something to do with laws that they made to prevent it being, like, illegal to have recordable cassette tapes.

prix is probably conflating me saying 'my gramma' with having brought up north carolina because for her at least that's a pretty established fact

I'm also pretty sure that's not what she's talking about, but honestly it doesn't matter that much where the information came from. She just did acknowledge that she was North Carolinian fairly recently on some kind of BL-member frequented venue, so there's no reason to get defensive about her not sharing this information. I'm not keeping up with posts line by line either. It's fine.

But, on that note, this is another reason there are cultural differences.

The other map is about dialect region boundaries.

I just grabbed the first readable looking dialect map that seemed plausible to me, but you're always going to have disputes about boundaries because they all have fades and exceptions.

Discussion was about whether "Lord" was ever pronounced "Lawdy" typically in a region, which is only a feature of certain "southern" dialects but not others. Dialect and culture might not totally overlap, but overarching dialects tend to have cultural origins. Vowels shifting around and stuff are eventually what give rise to new languages once you add a few land boundaries and stuff like that. It's different with modernization, but basically my point was that what a lot of people are referring to with "the South" has to do with certain cultural conceptions that I think the further west you go the more you would tend to flatten them out and conflate them. There's a famous and frequently-used kind of old documentary called American Tongues and some other scholarship that suggests that the reason most Americans tend to assume Midwesterners "don't have an accent" is that in the movement west, people from the north and sound converged in the middle and their dialect features "flattened" into one both groups recognize as less pronounced and more standard. However, as certain cultural groups developed further west around ports and trade and railroads and whatever, more distinct dialect pockets happened again.

Like, Texas is its own little odd case but for the most part there's a conception that at least to a point that American culture is more homogenized and less connected to the cultures immigrants came from as one moves further west, I guess, at least in terms of linguistic baggage.
