I don't listen to the radio very often, and for good reason. I was reminded of that reason on the way to work today. I mistakenly left my CD's on my kitchen table after cleaning my car out the evening before. "Let's check out the radio," I thought, as a last resort to break the silence. After about 10 minutes, I just turned it right back off and decided that car mufflers and squeaky brakes were a slightly better alternative. I was absolutely appalled by the ignorance beaming out of my car speakers! Three songs in a row, and all I heard was, "I'm not in love, but the sex is good," "She likes to shake her ass," and "hey, you're a crazy bitch." What in the hell? Does anyone know how to write song lyrics anymore? Or does all music today aim toward the demographic of the completely trashed? I love music very much. It's who I am, it's what I do. I would like to make music into a profession in the future, but it's extremely disheartening to realize that not many people make it on musicianship and poetry as they do with vulgarity and power chords. And these people make BANK off of mindlessness. I'm not some puritan freak, either. Talk about sex and drugs, I don't care. Just do it with some respect for yourself, and music in general. You know who you are, you mainstream filth. LOL, I'm finished now. Have a good one!
