revelations in music television

some thoughts while watching vh1 this morning instead of listening to my own music:

- i keep seeing the name Gavin DeGraw floating around everywhere but for some reason think "country!" (der. tim mcgraw.) i saw/heard him for the first time. not bad. a little cutie.

- r kelly is still around?

- in switching it to mtv, i suddenly feel very dirty as i see a band, i think "helloooooo, nurse!" and then i see them closer up and they look like they're 16. i need to go bathe now.

- every time i see the commercial for Celebrity Fit Club 2, i keep thinking i'm hearing Sloan's "If it Feels Good, Do It" in the background, but i don't think that could be.

- i still have hair metal mentality...i see a video for Lifehouse start and i think "wow, they're still around? *singing* finally found a looooove of a lifetiiiiime...."

- rob thomas' solo stuff isn't nearly as hideous as i had thought it would be for some reason. and you've gotsta love videos where the rawk stah is running to/from something, a la goo goo dolls' "dizzy".

- are bands getting younger and younger, or am i really aging that quickly?

- yes, yes, i know that foo fighters are coming out with a new album. yes, yes, it will be magical. but do you HAVE to play their video twice within an hour and a half? sheesh.

- i still cannot STAND gwen stefani. sorry to those that adore her. i just... can't.

- yay for new mraz!

my hair turned out WAAAAAAAAAAY darker than i thought. i think that with my tan skin, i almost look mexican. ha. due to some... dripping during my hair dying experience, i shall wear makeup. i just hope that it's not so pale compared to my skin now that i look like a mime. thank goodness it'll eventually fade to that fancraptastic copper orange after awhile.

so don't wanna go to work. after 4 days off, i hope i can even find my uniform.

Firehouse is still around, so you're not too far off. They're touring with...Cinderella & RATT (I think?) this summer.

hee hee. it cracks me up how many bands like that are still together. or .. doesnt' l.a. guns have two different versions, one headed by phil lewis and one by tracii? or faster pussycat with only taime left... or pbf with only steve 'sexual harassment' summers left (though i hear the full original lineup will be touring soon...)
Feb. 18th, 2006 08:27 am (UTC)
Nope, only one version of LA Guns. Tracii is doing his own thing. Faster does only have Taime as the original member right now, but the other guys are so awesome! *loves* You know, PBF is on tour right now & I have no idea who's playing with Steve.

Of course, I'm going to see RATT & Skid Row tomorrow, so it all ties in somehow. ;)

yup, they're all just one big happy eyeliner band!

What the hell IS that "Hollaback" song? That is the stupidest thing I have seen/heard in years.

Please, Gwen, you have more ability than that...sheesh. Shut up and look pretty if that's the best you can do.

hee hee, i almost responded with a "NO DOUBT!".. but then it would sound like an awful pun that was seriously not intended.

but then i decided to tell you about it, anyway.

but, yeah.

Let's see the new hair!
Feb. 28th, 2006 06:21 pm (UTC)
i keep thinking that i need to take a picture of my hair, but then remember it looks almost identical to all my icons, but darker hair.

I agree about Gwen, mostly because I know so many 14 yr olds that used to be cool start dressing really trashy and acting obnoxious because they want to emulate her.

Apr. 24th, 2006 12:19 am (UTC)
ugh, i knew people back when i worked in property managment who emulated her - BLECK.

oh that reminds me, for some reason, that i was planning on bleaching my hair today. i'm too lazy, though.

and i should really do dishes. our kitchen is becoming lost.

Wait.. Gavin DeGraw ISN'T a country singer??

I can't stang Gwen, either -_- she used to be my hero, then she went solo and.... -_-;

Yep, R. Kelly still makes music. The mind boggles as to how or why.

a few of my coworkers cannot understand why on earth i cannot stand hip hop. i respond either that i have musical tastes (and hip hop, to me, does not qualify as 'music', nor does a normal remake of any song that has been remade a gazillion times, i.e. the "if it ain't paradise, put up a parking lot" jerk song), or that i don't like to listen to anything i cannot hum to.

in respect to them, i don't point out that music, to me, is written because there is something to be SAID in one form or another, and that the topics 'bootay' and 'shake that' are usually not prevalent in what i call music.

Good songs paint a picture or evoke emotions. When I listen to most hip-hop the only picture I get is of hos, bling or drugs and violence. Not that there's necessarily anything wrong with most of that, but I seldom ever get moved by hip-hop music, or have a memory come and kick me in the balls because of evoked emotions.

I rather think of hip-hop as the dark chocolate of the sugar Pop side of music, a nice snack and mostly intended to have a short shelf life.

hip hop evokes an emotion in me: irritation. but pretty much everything you said is groovy.
