So glad this makes you smile.:loveliness: This was actually the very first blog I ever wrote so I was still finding my way with m writing. If you like this one you might find some of the later blogs amusing.
Glad you told me, I can never keep track of people when they change their names. We do have a thread called Who's that user? where people can post the names they have had and it's a very good idea. I don't think that many people think to use it though or even know about it.
Hope you and your family have a nice Christmas as well.
We here at Thorn Industries™ are working hard to make Christmas even better. We're shipping special "snow" (Which might be a little bit radioactive) from Chernobyl to Africa so that small children who have never beheld the marvel of snow can build glow in the dark snowmen.:lol:
It's a very rare thing indeed to see a blog from you Scoobs and I clicked on it as fast as I could.
Great song and beautifully poetic lyrics. Now we just need to see and hear you singing it. I know peer pressure works in the real world but not sure so much about the interwebs. Maybe if we all chant together it will still be effective. YouTube YouTube YouTube YouTube:lol:
Hope you don't mind me playing round with your photo a little. It's such a vibrant red I couldn't resist giving the image a more classic look.
Glad to see you're still here and making a few friends.
I thought turning Pity into a spam head was pretty gross, but nothing quite turns my stomach like the site of a hirsute man in extreme close up. (So glad I have a smooth chest, stops me having to scream in horror at myself every night when I get undressed):lol:
These spam wars always start of innocently enough but nobody ever thinks about the casualties. All those genius comments and inspiring images wishing us a good morning are forever lost below the line. Brilliant isn't it.:lol:
Yeah this conversation is going nowhere. All I can say though is that most people can distinguish between fantasy and real life. If the points I made above about how you would not judge those other people based on what they wore and how they behaved when performing does not help you to see how selective you are being with your judgments, then nothing else I can say is going to make a difference.
Yeah I would know if we shared the same views. Thanks for trying to point out I'm not bright enough to even understand what I believe.:dull:
I will finish with this though. She is now a member of this community so the same protection applies to her as applies to everyone else. Written attacks on her based on what you personally feel are her moral failings are not allowed and would be considered flaming.
From the rules.
Jesus Christ! I'd better go and add my secretaries name to the end of all my blogs!
Nobody reads all the way through my blogs. They're far too long and the last two thousand words of every blog I have ever written has consisted of nothing but the words, "Blah blah blah blah."
I have never ever told an untruth in any blog I have ever written...O.K maybe only slightly less than two percent is truth, but it's a really big two percent!
I used Google to check this following passage I wrote.
"You fall like rain upon me, but cool my ardour only momentarily."
This is what I got.
"Fribble fribble spong wibble, brooby dooby flibbly poo."
The point I am trying to make is that you cannot make such a judgment and moral condemnation of a performer based on what they do when performing. If you watched a slipknot music video you wouldn't assume they were delinquent serial killers simply because of the way they dressed while performing. Neither would you assume that tiny little Tom Cruise (Seriously he's only about four inches tall) is really a hitman pimp saviour of the world because that's how he acts in his films. They are performers and they put on a show for us but that is not who they really are.
Yes she dresses provocatively in her videos but that does not mean she lacks morals. I bet she probably likes to occasionally spend a quiet night at home in comfortable slouchy clothes with a cup of hot chocolate.
I do understand your concerns about how women (And men) who are idolised can have a strong influence on their very young fans, but just maybe they will learn from miss Sutta that you can be more than just what you wear. A human being is always more than what is seen on the surface. Hell some of the most evil people in history have dressed very conservatively. John Wayne Gacy used to dress as a clown and perform at children's party's and he murdered at least thirty three people! Clothes make not the man. (Nor the women)
Welcome to KAT.
Thank you for making your latest track available for free and for taking the time to let us know about it here.
Sorry about that moronic comment that was made in the blog. I can promise people like that are very much in the minority here. This is a community that takes pride in the fact that we are welcoming and friendly and supportive of each other. Some of the cleverest, funniest and nicest people I know are here and if you return, I hope you get a chance to meet some of them.
That is a seriously nasty thing to be saying about someone ohyesitwill
Dressing provocatively in a music video does not make her a whore. You don't know her so you really are not in a position to judge her. If you actually read what she said here in the blog she talked about not compromising and doing things that she felt would damage her integrity. In an age when thousands of young women are prepared to do pretty much anything at all to get to the top and stay there, miss Sutta's attitude is refreshing and if anything it should make her a role model that you could be proud of a young girl wanting to emulate.
No if I had children I would not want a daughter dressing like that when she is still a child. (Because who would want a child dressing in such an adult way) I wouldn't want a son busting caps in someone's ass either and wouldn't expect him to simply because he listened to rap.
That's an excellent idea. Pretty sure her record company would be a little pissed if she did ever try to create an account here but she could always just do what most of the rest of us do, and hide who she really is. Hell she might even be here already! Oh my god you might be her! Even I might be her!:lol:
I applaud you Miss Sutta for your incredibly progressive way of thinking. I actually am more of a rock guy so don't really listen to your music. (Although I did like "Again" and will have to listen to more of your music because you really do have a beautiful voice)
Sorry that you have had to see the dark underside of the music industry. (Doesn't just go on in music either unfortunately) We still live in a world where backroom deals at the highest level are the norm for getting things done. A few people at the top who have far more control than they should do.
There does need to be a way for artists to make a living doing what they do and the better the artist the more they deserve to earn. Free music or film is a great idea but the truth is that people do still need to pay somewhere or nothing is sustainable. Certainly the ability to download at a very high quality for a fair price is the way to go. People pay less because they are not paying for a physical object like a CD so the cost of supply decreases. Less money for the big record executives and more money for the people who do the actual work, the artists.
I really do hope that your solo career is a huge success and I'm going to go and buy one of your albums and I hope many of our community support you by doing the same.
Oh and I watched the video for "Candy" and it made me want to upload a little bit.:lol:
The problem I often have descending with people who say things like, "I refuse to change" or "I am who I am" is that very often those people can dish out what they see as the truth, but they can't take it.
Modifying our behaviour when in different company is not a betrayal of who you are, it's a simple act of respect. If you stop swearing when in company that you know will find it offensive then it's still you who is speaking. The only difference is that you are more likely to be listened to and to be able to get your point across.
If I was on the bus with my thirteen year old niece and someone was sitting in the seat behind me swearing loudly enough to be heard, I would politely ask them to please modify their language. She is a quiet girl and it would scare her to hear someone speaking like that. That seems a reasonable request to make of someone I think and it in no way requires someone to be untrue to themselves, it only asks for respect to be shown to others.
I know the very comment you are referring to pityrules and I was appalled to see it remain in that blog. If I had still been a Mod I would have deleted it and sent the person who made the comment a very strongly worded pm warning them not to talk like that again. KAT absolutely does not condone sexism, homophobia, and misogyny and it's even written into the rules that,
I really have no idea what happened there but in my opinion the Mods here dropped the ball on that occasion. Some of the things that were being said were frankly, sickening.
