Obsession with mediocrity

Post by VioletVenom on Tue Jul 15, 2008 3:35 am

What is wrong with media? Valuing mediocrity. Yep, American media loves to glamourize the people who have done piss nothing to get rich. Even more reasons why I can't stand this country or living in Los Angelos.

There you go.

I actually see it more in mainstream music. The lack of experimental and progressive music being played on radios and being heavily displayed to the public is atrocious. Part of the problem is the public's satisfaction with mediocrity.

Eh, there seems to be no dedication to actual talent in mainstream music, only if they are hot or if it's the trend.

*Guy talking into a microphone*

*Girls having orgasms in the background*

Or if you want to go the mainstream rock route. Boring lyrics like LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH or THE LIPS OF AN ANGEL with generic power cords playing in the backround.

Or, no bass at all...That bothers me. It's either drowned out, or just not there.

I think she should spend about 10 years in there, and be treated like the average prisoner.

I'd love to see how she turns out.
