  • from underground to mainstream, selling out

    3 jan 2010, 03:16

    I like the fact that Adam Young is getting money and acknowledgment. He owns a grand musicianship and deserves it. That's always good. But now it's on Kids Bop 17? My little cousin listens to Owl City? It's a little, just a little bothersome. There's something about liking underground music that makes it feel like it's yours. Underground has its own culture, its own feel. Now, Owl City rocketed into the radio, and I mean really rocketed. It happened VERY sudden. /shrug. I don't know. Can't really explain how I feel about this.

    Then there's the idea of selling out. There will ALWAYS be accusations of selling out from a band's fanbase when they get bigger. Truly, if you're going to call a band out for selling out, you better do your homework first. Selling out means compromising your musical integrity for cash. Selling out is NOT changing your band's sound, which, unfortunately, is what selling out is most often misperceived as. Think about it. If you're in a band, you produce music that reflects your life. Now, if you write a record now, do you think it'll be the same record you wrote two years ago? Is your entire band in the SAME place in life, with the SAME characters and mentalities, as they were two years ago? No. People grow. Circumstances change. People are constantly influenced by different things. Just because the sound changes, doesn't mean the band has sold out.

  • warped tour, pretty much

    19 dec 2009, 03:46

    what i like about the warped tour lineup so far:
    whitechapel
    we the kings
    sum 41 (rad)
    suicide silence
    parkway drive (kickass)
    nevershoutnever
    mayday parade
    in fear and faith (raaad)
    every time i die
    emmure (kickasss)
    breathe electric (damn. this guy had a smallish show just this summer and now...)


    also:
    Warped Tour's website is WAY TOO BROKEN. WHAT THE HELL, WARPED TOUR.
    Let me share with you the problems you -will- encounter on a WT account, if you ever succeed in having one, because it's likely WT will never accept registry, so you have to go to another loudbase website, like vans.com: /end run on sentence

    - CONSTANT logging out
    - CONSTANT Dead pages
    - Can't reedit posts, or preview them

    Short list, but real enough.

    Hey There Delilah
  • "Mr Right" explanation

    22 nov 2009, 18:02

    "My girlfriend's boyfriend" shows that he's actually singing about himself. The first verse reveals that he's not much; he has no cash and no education, but he has love.

    Second paragraph, he still talks about himself in the third person perspective. He's saying he loves her and what they have; "He knows he's lucky he met someone like you". In "He knew, the only wish he wanted came true" he's referring to the wish of love.

    During the choruses he shifts from indirectly speaking to direct speaking; "Maybe I'm your Mr. Right" (soulmate, "the one"). He continues the idea of how seemingly unattractive he is when he says "Maybe I'm a shot in the dark (taking a somewhat unhopeful chance in him) and "i'm the worst for you". That same line is a play on words: "You could be the best for me when I'm the worst for you." "You're the morning light" means she's hope, his significant love, or the person who will bring a lot of happiness to his life.

    In short, he's singing with a lighthearted tone about how he's flawed, but they're a perfect match anyway. Ultimately, a song is however you perceive it, though. Art is open to various perspectives.

    As for the video, basically, it's about two relationships. One, a girl doesn't appreciate his guy; he buys her things but she doesn't acknoweldge it with gratitude (Table scene with friends, opening scene when they're at the store), she's always texting someone else, acting aloof (occurs throughout the video). Then, there's the opposite couple: a guy and a girl who're completely happy (they're consistently smiling and flirting). How this relates to the song, I don't see it. Yet, music videos frequently don't link to the videos anyway, especially ARTTM's.

    Mr. Right
