Good Ciscussion topic brodir-I congraduat you!!<P>Well since this topic was started I must therefore state some rather startling information about me.<P>I know I'm on beethoven.com because I love Beethoven-with Mozart,Stravinsky,Vivialdi,Liszt,etc. but i do like Christina Aguilera,Justin Timberlake,B2k,Cam'ron,Nelly,Ludacris,etc, and personally I don't think the people that stated that rap isn't music are being fair,let alone being the opposite of arrogant.It DOES qualify as music
just a different genre than CLASSICAL-it's a different style-for example,Scarlatti and Stravinsky-completely different but I'm absolutely positive that everyone on here considers it music.Plus have you actually trained your ear to appeciate rap.I DON'T BELIEVE SO.Imagine this(which i doubt is possible to the people on this website but none the less)imagine that you had never listened to classical ever in your life,you had listened to (a little easier to concieve) pop forever and ever,but then one day Dubussy comes along-you'd probably think "DESPICABLE STUFF,THAT DUBUSSY" that's not music in the least.Am I right?Well you guys can't nesecssarily argue that I'm wrong can you,because you've never actually expirenced that-and you never will because it's completely impossible.So you people can't argue on this subject and if you do your unconditionally insolent!
<BR>And if you've read what I've wrote on this website you'de realize that i do know classical music,and probably @ a college level,so I can and wish to conduct an orchestra-but i'm still fond of Ja Rule.<BR>Plus,this is going to make an enormous impression about my writtings and most of all ME,Im actually hestitant to reveal thi,but it helps me in this debate.......... I'm 13.<P>I don't like punk rock (any form old or new,i don't drink champange,i don't wear tweed outfits-i wear large Ecko sweaters,big Old Navy shirts,and baggy jeans-,i don't ahve a house ( part of this is obvious considering the last line of the last paragraph)i hate philosophers and their work,too much thinking about absolutely nothing that relevant anymore-it might have been about a 100 centuries ago or however long ago they wrote them-but know we know how large the Earthy is (sorry Plato,you're calculations were WRONG,W-R-O-N-G)and most of us commoners and us teens don't care about the secret of life-who even said that there was a secret-there isn't- the only thing we do is SHIT,Eat,the Sleep-nothing important.A rare 2% or us might actually make a diff. but even if we do it still won't change the world.<P>So in conclusion don't bash anything that you don't and can't have any right to bash.You're just sharing your insubordinance with the viewers of this website-though i doubt that they'll even understand my point of view.If you have anything to say to me or about my statements please do so.I'll be happy to respond with more of my thoughts
