Exactly. Everything has it's pop. Pop rock, or pop rap or whatever is important, because it's an opening for people into the real stuff, but it is exactly what it is; pop. The fact that you can't find a meaning or soul in any of it isn't exactly surprising.

Try expanding your hip-hop/rap listening a bit, give it a go at least.

If you truly can't see the excitement/soul/innovation/energy/funk/creativity/storytelling etc etc etc in hip-hop then I feel sorry for you, but each to their own I guess.

"this jungle music is just a passing phase."
-what your parents/grandparents said about rock & roll


rap is not going anywhere... like what has already been said... it's been in the mainstream since the early 1980s... that ain't exactly a fad anymore.

if you don't like it, blame steven tyler.

perhaps your just upset that i'm right about this?

and what does being an adult have to do with anything? i wear a suit and tie to work, i meet with the most important people to discuss money, sex, and alcohol all the time. perhaps your job is more adulterating?

ah, what a word. another deathbear trademark ready to be coined into a hallmark greeting card.

what i truly am thrilled at is the amount of effort you've made to combat my claims against matchbox twenty. shitass bands like that don't need explanation or ADULT reason to explain why they're awful. if you don't have the capacity to understand what makes them so bad in the first place, perhaps i'm the one who's wasting my time?

um, no. when it comes to fighting the good fight, deathbear has the energy of a million men willing to do whatever it takes until everyone realizes how important it is they feel the same way about things as he does.

and now that i've come to the point where i'm referring to myself in the third person, i'll leave you with an inspiring quote by none other than king.

"to be or not to be - that is not the question. to be like king, and to be more like him than even he can ever be, is not only the question - it's the answer!"

hallelujah!

~king
hallelujah! right back atcha, bear. Next time try talking sense.

You didn't hit a nerve at all - I'm not particularly fond of Matchbox20: to be honest, I didn't mind their first album but the rest has been utter shite in my opinion. Believe me, I'm not in any particular hurry to listen to Rob Thomas' solo stuff either - I do find that he frequently sounds like an elderly yak giving birth to triplets in a public toilet.

That's not the point I was making originally, and you bloody well know it.

It was you making sweeping claims about Matchbox20 having "played a large part in destroying mainstream rock radio" while not backing them up with any evidence, or even the slightest hint of anything resembling articulacy, that I found childish. If Matchbox20 are that bad they're not going to have a particularly important place in the annals of modern music, are they? Simple as that.

I thought you were behaving like an immature dickwad and i told you so. It would have been different f you'd had anything of value or interest to say.

It appears that the only response you have is to repeat your ridiculous claims of megalomaniac proportions. I will therefore leave you to your own devices, as I see no point in wasting my own time reasoning with someone behaving like an imbecile. Although I have to admit that your Hamlet bastardisation was really amusing:

Quote:

"to be or not to be - that is not the question. to be like king, and to be more like him than even he can ever be, is not only the question - it's the answer!"
Okay mate, if you say so. Did they let you out of the padded cell, or did you manage to escape? If it's the latter, well done.

One last thing - try learning basic grammar that most people absorb by the age of five (possibly six, for the slowest learners): you are = you're, belonging to you = your. Thankyou for the memory, and goodnight. Love and Peace (or, Peace on Earth, if you prefer).

PS: What I would be truly thrilled at, were I that deprived of a life*, is that your response to my last post backed up everything I'd said therein.

*I have an excuse for being here still - insomnia is a terrible thing!

deer sally,

i wanted too personally thank you for taking the time too complain about all the "vaults" you found in my post.

seeing as you have steaked a claim in discribing my views as "childish", perhaps you'd expect me to through a tirade at you in response?

no, of course not. you've given me everything i could ever want. when it comes to internet masausage boreds, theres' little i enjoy more then having a healthy debate among fellow respective peers - including you!

i full-heartedly value and cherish your opinions and viewpoints, and together, i feel we can exchange dialogue that would not only change ourselves - but the world that exists in us.

your probably the most best person at like, you know. you really put it too me.

i'm am humbled.

~zoomerang96

p.s. matchbox twenty sucks ass

That was a very good ending!

it wasn't your views, at all, that I was calling childish - just the way you put them forward. I guess we've both established our views on Matchbox20 and their environs, LOL.

I dunno about you, but I'm going to go and try to get some sleep, before we bore the other forum folk to death with our mutual silliness.

You're a funny guy and you do make me giggle with your comments.

I'm wondering if we have managed to kill this thread completely - I think it's a distinct possibility!

I'm waiting for the backlash against white people who think they're black. Wait? everyone hates them already.
