hype.

I don’t know whether or not you all have heard of Rebecca Black, but… I can’t help but feel sorry for her.

Here is a video of an interview of her:

Okay. So she makes a song that “sucks.”

According to the video, her song has reached #39 on the iTunes market. That’s past Justin Bieber.  If Justin Bieber doesn’t “suck,” then why is her music owning Justin’s?

According to an article I read, her parents spent $5,000 to produce the video. Now they’re making much more.

The song is “the worst thing” people have ever heard. She has the “worst voice ever.”

I know a lot of people who are worse at singing. Even with autotune. But a lot of other artists make bad songs, too, so why feel the need to single one person out?

She’s thirteen. She’s still going through puberty or whatever, which means that her emotions are probably going awry. I wonder how she sleeps at night.

But whatever. Her music is the epitome of American pop music. When I went to listen to it for the first time, I couldn’t tell that this was “bad” music. Most pop music sounds like that. It sucks? Then stop listening to it and stop whining, you baby.

I think we’ve had enough of making fun of her. We know she’s bad. Move on. Justin Bieber, on the other hand, sucks, but some people don’t know that. There’s a difference.

But then again, Rebecca likes Bieber’s music, so……

Civilization

Immediately following my status on March 15 (“The English language has evolved from blocks of eloquent sentences to slurries of incomprehensible gibberish. Pretty soon we’ll all be speaking French.”), I went to take a shower.

While in the shower, I realized exactly how true this is. Not just with language, but also with everything else.

Many things, in the past, were structured; this being music, art, language, math.  As civilization advanced, so did the rules. Actually, no they didn’t. They became more loose as time progressed.

We came from structure and rules. Then we learned that there are exceptions to the rules. We took advantages to the exceptions and turned them into norms.

As there were no more exceptions to use, we learned to break the rules. And boy, we broke ’em good.

Rules almost aren’t even there anymore. Do we even need them?

I say: YES. Rules are what make things satisfying. We need rules. Rules are good. Yes.

post!

This post is pretty personal. Don’t make fun of me. 🙁

Here comes a topic that I’ve been trying to avoid:

Girls.

oooooh. *dramatic music*

It’s a topic I’m not too familiar with, and a topic I’m kind of reluctant to post on, but there are a few things I want to share with the world.

For one, it being high school and all, I have noticed that people don’t really go out with each other for any real reason. It’s kind of been like, “oh, hey. S/he’s attractive. I’m going to go talk to him/her.” And then things get set off and they begin dating and whatnot.

This is kind of a waste of time (and money) to me.  Why date someone when you don’t look into the future and try to predict what the end if it is going to be like?

I feel like I’ve posted something like this before.

I don’t want to say outright that I’m different, but… I feel as if I’m different. I don’t look for girls based on looks.

If you’re a girl and I’ve asked you out on a date before, it’s because I can see a future between us. Not because I want to make out with you.

Well, except for that one time in 8th grade when the hormones took over.

I don’t want to spend the rest of my life with someone if I can’t get along with her.

Sometimes I’ll ask out a girl who doesn’t feel the same toward me as I do to her. And then I realize it’s high school and there’s a very low chance that people will think the same as I do.

And then I get sad at home and stare at my computer for eight hours.
