As I write this it is Sunday morning, and I’m having an email conversation with one of the regular readers. It’s raining outdoors, so I’m just sitting here with the TV on while I’m writing. I turned the channel to something mindless, a VH1 countdown show. You see, MTV no longer plays music, how is that for irony? VH1 still plays music sometimes, and I can really see why the two premier music stations are getting away from music. It’s because the music really sucks.
If you haven’t listened to anything new lately you will be surprised to see that most of the music out there is an amalgamation of pussy rock and pussy country and pussy rap. The vocal tracks are digitally altered and sound like what we thought robot voices would sound like. Out of the twenty or so videos I say only one was visually stunning, but it made no sense in relationship to the song or to anything based in reality.
I was at my dentist office last week and I found myself getting aggravated by the mindless radio station that played extremely compresses pop crap. I’m becoming less tolerant of things that get poured into my head.
Pop music is a total wasteland. I hope something new comes along soon.
