Arturo: What are you listening to?
Ling: Some new music. You want to hear it?
Arturo: All right. That’s pretty mellow, kinda bluesy, isn’t it? It’s got an interesting indie feel.
Ling: Do you like it?
Arturo: It’s all right. I like more funky, dance music myself, but this is okay. It’s not too depressing.
Ling: That’s faint praise.
Arturo: No, no, I do like it. I guess I’m usually in the mood for more up-tempo music, something with a driving beat. I’m a hard-core MC-Quillan fan, if that’s any indication.
Ling: Oh, I see, so you don’t really like acoustic music much.
Arturo: It’s just not my thing, you know?
Ling: Yeah, that’s too bad.
Ling: That was a track I recorded last week.
Arturo: This is your music? In that case, I love it.
Ling: You’re just saying that.
Arturo: No, really, it’s growing on me. In fact, I want to hear more. How about if I bring over some dinner on Saturday and you can play me a few more tracks?
Ling: You don’t mind?
Arturo: Believe me, I’ll be all ears.
