The Kooks

From the title of the post, you can probably tell I’m a little confused. Let me tell you why.

I always wonder-sincerely- what kind of music guys listen to. My first and best guess would be music sung by other guys/men. I mean, no one really thinks of men listening to Britney Spears for their enjoyment. In fact, if Britney Spears was fat, wrinkly, and bald (hm…) I’m pretty sure her fan base would plummet to just my dad. But then I think of other male singers like the Kooks (male band actually). When I think of the Kooks, I think of a large demographic of under aged fan girls. Don’t get me started on Justin Bieber and fan girls.

So, where do men fit in? I suppose they’d go for the more unknown indie bands (I know, my best guess) or metal bands or hard rock or screamo bands. But then again, there are some (most) guys who are actually normal people who deserve and want to listen to normal music. I know some listen to pop music, but come on, who do know listens to exclusively modern pop music and is a genuine music enthusiast?

let me narrow down the question: what do musical guys listen to? Guys who actually have an ipod they update themselves and guys who actually search for music unique to their preferences.What do you think?

In conclusion, guys listen to the same music girls listen to. Why can’t a guy listen to¬† Britney Spears? Guys can do whatever they want! If they want to listen to sappy acoustic music (yuck) then they can gopher it. It is dangerous to generalize an entire group of people and identify one or two genres they like to listen to. People are complex and we should never generalize them.

Story of my life

 

Here is what I etched into my notebook today (as I was out and about, unlike yesterday)

To Do List:

2nd draft of essay (which by the way will most likely be about this article: www.jstor.org/stable/3202503

French Homework (this is due tomorrow, and I haven’t started it. ahhh!)

piano (this should be on my list every week. I never practice even though I should if I want to be a master pianist!)

Now I am going to have my own blog to do list:

Posts I’m going to write

The art of blogging- the struggles I had (and still have) when starting a new blog

Top ten favorite songs/musical artists/etc… as I am a musician and artist myself!

In addition, I hope sooner or later to conduct an experiment (sort of). Ideally, I would ask a bunch of kids to draw a picture of God, in response to this video: http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity.html

And generally, interesting articles, videos, etc…

so much to do, but at least I have some ideas/ direction! Unfortunately I can only post one thing a day (and so far I have been quite diligent!) So do check back everyday (probably every night/ afternoon) and hopefully you will enjoy my future posts.
