So I recently got into a discussion with a friend of mine about music. I'd like to hear your opinions on it since basically so few other people around me actually agree or even bothered to listen to what I had to say. Anyway I got into an argument with some kid at NJIT one day where he was asking me how I could listen to what I listen to. I responded by asking him how he could listen to stuff with such mundane lyrics. This may be hard to follow since I'm a little tired but just hear me out. My point is that music is a fantasy realm. It is meant to spark the imagination. So I accused him of being feeble-minded because the lyrics in his music never reached beyond what he himself had experienced (for example emo kids only listening to songs about their girlfriends leaving them) While my music on the other hand dealt with issues that I would probably never have to experience, like eviscerating someone with a meathook. I don't see the point of music describing everyday life. Because everyday life if retarded. Now the rest are some excerpts from other posts I've made on another forum that my friends set up . . . and finally a real long one . . . Anyway yeah a little long-winded but that's basically my feelings about stupid people. I swear some people are just such sheep. I'd like to see what you guys think. Agree/disagree or whatever. Obviously there is more to it and even my views are opinion, but that's all that music is, an opinion.
