Naw, that's me. Except it's mostly old movie soundtracks I've got on vinyl.Let me guess...are these people vinyl jazz record collectors too who insists on drinking only craft beer and cocktails?
In all seriousness...I think there's a perception among certain groups that enjoying Disney unironically is a sign of intellectual laziness. My opinion, though, is that it's also intellectual laziness to dismiss a huge swathe of popular entertainment based on one's preconceived notions and the popularity of making it an easy target in certain circles. My favorite people in college were the ones who were actually capable of enjoying popular things instead of kneejerking against them for being popular, even if we didn't always enjoy the same popular stuff. One of my film profs in undergrad used to tell stories about Stan Brakhage (a hugely influencial experimental filmmaker of the last century) going to the multiplex and just absolutely eating up the Mummy movies. That's the kind of intellectual I can actually relate to.
