Re: Curious, Not only where Posters are From, But which Music Roots you grew up on and which you hated

But, let me just say, 99% of popular music out there now-a-days is just painful to listen to. There is a difference between good music and catchy tunes and lyrics. Dear Lord, maybe this is somewhat similar to how my parents felt with my music that I grew up with. But, god damn the likes of ke$ha, rihiana, Bieber, those boys from Englend, Nikki Minage, Adam Levine...the list goes on. This goes for most of the rap out there that is just funny to listen to because it's sooooo bad. I guess I am getting old...thanks for startign this thread! haha
you are just old
Nope... And I really would like to cry tears of blood for simply saying that, for at my core of being: I'm Objective, I'm an Optimistic, I am a present-day Modernist, and I Hold artistic expression above ALL else...
And I gotta go back to the 90's for the beginning of any real inspiration... Artists creating w/ REAL musical passion. Ya could find it piecemeal in the 80's...Pretty decently in the 70's...Wholeheartedly in the 60's and 90's...and imo, in the 50's-somewhere in between the 80's and the 70's in grand total.
I'm pretty sure that suffering for the "youth" (and/or empassioned + vociferously disillusioned musical progenitors of culture), Is being away from their Next Gen iphone...or not having daddy yet buy it. Similarly, I'm pretty sure that seemingly 99% of the bands/artists being created/found/cultivated/caveated, ARE: Found and founded by Disney Corp's Michael Eisner...and the rest on "Who wants to be a star".
That is NOT good. That IS: Dictating Art...Cultivating the already chosen few artists, by a selection OF few. That is, NOT Real/Great "Suffering"/"Artists speaking through empassioned Suffering/alienation"- Genres & Selected "Artists" being Mass-produced, and Genres/"Artists" being dictated too largely from the onset, and not being able to be cultivated/birthed/expressed/brought in to being, in a Far, FAR too linearly & controlled & VERY limited manner.
It's The Mass-Production of Creative Expression...and it svx. It is noticeably less "radical", and extremely less "empassionned".
...And I wish it didn't svck. The More Controlled The Artistry-The worse The Art is...plain & simple. Marketable Art to The Most # of the "Generalized" public (i.e. buyers). Dats it.
It speaks to noone in particular...but it CAN make a profit
Overregulating the More Total Number of "freedoms"...while Underregulating the More Number of "Capital Gains"...Does NOT...Make: For very good art or artistic expression.
