I dunno, I feel like knitting, or learning how to build a website or something.
Maybe I’ll just watch Red Eye……I need a laugh from Greg Gutfeld….last time they mentioned there should be a class in college called “butter churning for bitches”…..and I was laughing my ass off.
Lately though, I feel like our era is becoming kind of stale, and maybe just too distracted. I’m tired of hearing about celebrity twitter rants, and people hitting each other with f-ing shovels.
But more specifically I think about music. I’m just disappointed with music right now. I know, to hear this is like hearing a broken record, but I just feel like this has been going on for years and someone needs to wake up. In my opinion, it’s all so just completely the same to me…..I’m fucking tired of electronic music and getting lost in that fantasy hipster sound. I don’t want to drown in my sorrow with this gentle sensitive music anymore. Fuck that shit. It’s not distinct, it’s not special to me. It’s all the same shit. Nobody stands out to me. I want someone to just fucking break shit, and release something that is so grand, so well thought out and something that people can take really seriously. Beautiful simple echoey voices and a good simple beat with some guitars and some electronic noises is ok, and sometimes people make great songs with that, but I feel like that is all that I have been hearing for the past 4 years. It just depresses me. I just feel like the good stuff is harder to find. I don’t want to believe that there isn’t good music out there. I understand that maybe I just haven’t found it yet. But still…..I think the majority of what is put out there is boring.
Luckily I’m still young so I haven’t heard all the other bands that have been around for a while. I can look in the back catalog of old music, and just live with that. And I think part of the problem might be that people are obsessed with the bands that were huge in the past. But that era is over. Stop dwelling that it’s not as good as the past. Someone needs to step in and not be part of the popularity contest.
I want to hear from someone who just has a way of standing out. I just feel like everybody blends in. Everyone is stylish, everyone is hipster, they all have large followings, all of them are political, they all write hit songs that fade away, and they all release albums like every 6 months. Where is that big band that I have been waiting for, the band that I get excited about, the band that I anticipate? I want someone to completely kick my teeth in and SURPRISE ME! And I don’t want a gimmick. I want them to be completely themselves, but be able to express that in a way that is at a higher level. I want them to be bold about it, even if they themselves are quiet, whatever your personality is, don’t do it too small. I need to really get the full picture and be able to clearly hear what you have to say. Nirvana was Kurt Cobain. You listened to Nirvana, that was a way of figuring out who this person was. You listen to it and it’s him, everything about it is completely made up from his mind and imagination, and his personality, and the music completely gives that away. But I don’t want a Kurt Cobain copy, I just want whoever can make awesome music, to do it loud, and do it completely their way, as who they are. I just want a leader, a standalone….someone who is trying something that is new and scary, all by themselves, but is completely exciting to watch. I don’t want a follower, I want a leader.
Well anyways, that’s my half-asleep late night post….I need to go to sleep now.
