At War Against Pop Auto-Tune Bullshit

At war against pop auto-tune bullshit

I speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. You don’t come to this site to hear political correctness. If something sucks the assholes of dead lepers, I’m not going to sugarcoat it and say it’s like a unicorn with wings gliding over a rainbow. I’ll say it sucks the assholes of dead lepers. Thus, I’m not going to sugarcoat pop auto-tune bullshit.

I absolutely adore beauty, love, and romance. I am a Romantic by the 19th century definition. I love beautiful women, am enchanted by nature, support freedom, and love reading fantasy and the macabre. I love music that is complex, yet full of melody.

By contrast, I hate stupidity and ugliness. For ugly music, I passionately loathe grunge. But I’ll save the rant about how much I detest grunge for later. For now, I want to go off on pop auto-tune bullshit.

Why Pop Auto-Tune Bullshit sucks the assholes of dead lepers and why you shouldn’t listen to it

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

-George Santayana

You’ve heard that quote a million times. If you know me in person, you’ve heard me say it. The powers that be know their history. They also know that if you want to control people in a somewhat free society, you want to keep them entertained and keep them stupid. So it comes as no surprise that the media is getting more stupid every year, because if you follow the money trail, you’ll see that the media is pretty much owned by six corporations. No, that wasn’t a link to some whacky conspiracy site. This is Business Insider, an investor’s magazine saying this.

Keep people stupid

So keep people stupid. The news is stupid. Television is generally stupid (although, I gotta say “Game of Thrones” kicks ass!, but you have to admit that most television is pretty fucking stupid). Celebrity gossip will make you stupid. And it should go without saying that pop auto-tune bullshit will make you stupid.

Use your brain. God (or the Gods/Goddesses if you’re a Pagan) gave you a brain. Use it. Start listening to something a little bit more complex than pop auto-tune bullshit. Several studies have shown that if you play Classical music to infants and toddlers, their IQs will be higher. This is not a coincidence. Western Classical music is one of the greatest accomplishments of humankind. Period. So even as a grown up, it should go without saying that if you listen to more Classical and less pop auto-tune bullshit, your brain would expand instead of contracting.

The same media companies that own the news stations also own the big record companies. Is it no surprise that instead of producing genuine talent, they give you pop auto-tune bullshit? These untalented ass clowns that they shove down our throats lack the talent to even sing on key. Thus, they have to use auto-tune to correct their lack of talent.

So instead of supporting them, toss them and start supporting independent bands that are doing something creative. Yes, they are out there. There is more talent now among independent artists than there has ever been in the last 100 years.

Raise your standards

It would be a better world if people had higher standards. It would be a better world if lousy lovers were dumped to the curb. It would be a better world if people supported talented artists rather than ass clowns. It would be a better world if people read better books, watched better movies, and listened to better music. It would be a better world if people saw more sunsets than erectile dysfunction commercials. Culture is a measuring stick for any civilization and a complete lack of culture shows that a culture doesn’t deserve to continue.

Let’s go forwards, not backwards. Let us demand greatness. If we set our standards higher, our culture will be better.
