Do you have a Google+ account (or anything tied into it, like GMail or a YouTube account)? If so it probably got the information off there.

I like Nicki Minaj for all the right (wrong?) reasons. Or one reason in particular.

The stuff I listen to for fun doesn't bear thinking about. I studied jazz at college and it's ruined me for life.

My daughter likes Katy Perry, her music is okay in a pop superficial way, not much to say other then "gimmie gimmie gimmie!" So you know, same pop music, different decade.

However she likes Sleater-Kinney and Northern State more, so.

I like Tori Amos and have quite a few of her albums, my favorite being From the Choir Girl Hotel.

Unless you have an unlimited data plan (which is pretty expensive on its own, in my experience), there's only so much of those you can listen to each month before running out.

the death of the unlimited data plan is indeed a massive paradigm shift. It's almost enough to make one believe in the syndicate or new world order.

studying something as infinite as music and thereby attempting to classify or calcify and thereby hold one system over another it seems to be a recipe for madness. I have never known a sane music teacher, but there are untold sounds I never would have been exposed to without them.

Why this world cannot wrap it's collective mind around people liking some things and not liking others is beyond me. Then again, conflict seems to an integral part of the human experience.

Those sound like fightin' words to me, I say, perhaps a round of fisticuffs will settle the matter.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It's just the human need to classify, divide, and unite based on something arbitrary. Even if racism were to end, there would be musical oppression, or movie preference, or clothing style. People choose stupid arbitrary reasons to look at another group and say "we're better than they are!"

You know, I read The Onion every day, and then the real world comes along and proves I don't need to.

this strikes me as more politics masquerading as science. Still dumb, though.

I'd recently heard this, but some others dug a bit deeper than I. Seems that there were other - important for local economy - reasons that it was rejected, but said article writer selected some particularly "juicy" bits to report on. It's a fluff piece. Sad that some people believe this? Sure. But from what I can tell, not anything like the true reasoning.

Mind, I can't link sources right now. Later, maybe.

I'm sure there are political reasons, but finding a "retired science teacher" who was willing to state that a solar plant would impede nearby photosynthesis is downright depressing.

Either a generation of high school students should have their diplomas re-examined, or she's so morally bankrupt she's willing to say anything to advance an agenda.

Either one is depressing to me...

Hum. I'm not sure studying music calcifies it, any more than studying, say, history somehow limits it or prevents it developing; apologies if that wasn't you meant.

Can't speak for anywhere else, but they went out of their way at our place to encourage you to investigate other genres and explore how they influenced and developed alongside each other. But yes, the staff (and pupils) were often pretty weird (hi!)

EDIT: History probably wasn't the best example. Whoops...

Fallen down the back of the sofa, and they're all sold out at the newsagent. Bum Committee is still available, if you'd rather.

The first half is The Dark Knight. I just kinda winged the second half, but I'm sure someone did the joke before.

Funny work story

:
Simon and Simon haircut lady is starting to develop a Frank Grimes syndrome.

"How come you get one of those inventory checking/maintenance devices, and not me"

"I don't know, I don't even hardly use mine"

"Can I have it then"

"No, get your own"

That was last week

"Why do you get to go home at midnight, you turn into a pumpkin after midnight"

"No, I go home and sleep in a big bed with my wife"

That was Saturday night.

"Why does everyone smile and say "hi" to you when you come in"

"I never asked them"

That was last night.

I'm just glad she stopped trying to high five me or pat me on the shoulder ("No touching!") Or trying to follow exactly 4 feet behind me anymore ("I'm just going to follow you around everywhere" "do not follow me").

My favorite:

Q: "Why don't you have to work overtime like the rest of us?"
A: "Because when I'm working I focus on what I'm getting paid to do and I get that done BEFORE goofing off..."

I would never claim that I don't goof off at work (this post is evidence enough to the contrary). I just first make sure that I've done enough work to make my boss happy, THEN I goof off...

Exactly, I do the hard stuff first, then it's all downhill from there.

Also, I get more freedom because I'm enthusiastic about doing the heavy lifting no else wants to touch. :-)

Also, I got to tackle a shoplifter the other night and intimidate (I'm better at this in the winter with my layers) a farm wife threatening to beat up Jersey mom with a heart of gold manager because she had to drive her fat ass to the side of the building to load her train table.

It was a good night.

Everyone is so pissed this year, maybe it's just that they picked out my section to bicker at each other, but man people are not happy Christmas shopping this year.

All of which merely reinforces my contrary nature. :-)
