Well, in response to ChrisN- I only defended myself in the same manner to which I was attacked...I wasn't completely serious, but for someone to come right out and call me a 'whiner', I thought, deserved an equally juvenile response.<br><br>To Dingus, congrats- you're now on my list of people I'm not going to bother with anymore!!!!<br><br>Go out and get yourself something nice, and send me the bill.

You should hear some of the stuff that has been recorded, but (thank goodness) was never picked up by anyone. Someone has to record that crap. It's the audio equivalant (I can't bring myself to say "musical" equivalent) of the worst of perversions on film. One studio manager I know, a brilliant woman with immense patience, showed me some masters that were so horrible they were considering turning them over to the FBI. The rap artists didn't pay their bill, however, so she took the opportunity to use the wording in their contract, and after so many months of non-payment, she destroyed them. She was so thrilled that the masters were no longer in this world. Think rape, incest, child molestation, bondage, mutilation, satanism, and so forth, and you'll have some idea of what was on those tapes.<br><br>Shooshie<br><br>Shooshie's Stuff
I try to keep an open mind when it comes to music... but that stuff just has no place on my CD rack... or hard drive, as the case may be.<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red><br>Visit me here!

the music tends to suck and the lyrics tend to be about the worst of the worst..<br><br>Boarding a different, yet related train... I totally agree with your statement concerning rap. My question is why do people who play it at window rattling volumes in public have the need to be so "in your face" about it?<br><br>When I worked in the cash office of a local supermarket I had to go outside for my cigarette break. I was sitting on a bench, enjoying the sounds of the birds and the sunshine, relaxing... An enormous SUV pulled up directly in front of me with a couple in it. He parks in the "no parking - fire zone" and his lady companion gets out and goes into the store. The rap music was blasting throught the opened windows of his SUV so loudly that my chest was vibrating. <br><br>I sat there for a minute or two... then I got up and walked over to his window and stared at him until he turned to face me. Then I started screaming hysterically at him! I can't remember what I said, because it was in the heat of passion, but I basically told him that I hated rap music, I was trying to enjoy a hard-earned break, and who the f&$^ did he think he was to force it down my throat when I didn't want to hear the F$*$& garbage in the first place!!!! <br><br>He shut it off.<br><br>dreed<br><br><br><br>
dreed2<br>I see your point and I kinda feel the same way - in your face music, well if you call rap as being music.<br><br>Anyway there is a city ordinace here that prohibutes sound decibles not to execide a certain limit heard from so many feet from the source.<br><br>The law was place because of that very reason - try and imagine sitting on a peaceful beache and more then one vehicale pulls into the parking area playing different music at the same time turned all the way up the volume scale - and you can still hear it from a mile away.<br><br>No wounder those kids don't listen to their parents they simply cannot hear.<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by carp on 11/02/02 08:53 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

No wounder those kids don't listen to their parents they simply cannot hear.<br>Carp, that is really funny, but the more I think about it, it's also profound.<br><br>The wine urges me on, the bewitching wine, which sets even a wise man to singing and to laughing gently and rouses him up to dance and brings forth words <br>which were better unspoken.<br>Homer
