Meaning is subjective. watface.
So is entertainment. Many cultures find many things entertaining and this extends to music. Many people hold their own individual values towards things and this extends through judgement and self-satisfaction.
Of course, I've never claimed the opposite.
looooooool why does everyone play cod not everyone goes on a killing spree
lllllllllllloooooooooool why does everyone watch naruto no one is really a ninja with chakra
like legit. what the fuck.
It's not the same at all. I'm not saying that when Eminem sings about killing women people actually start killing women. No. I'm saying it promotes hate and rage, which is never good. When people play games like CoD or watch animes like Naruto they are doing it with the notion that this isn't real. They follow a story line or compete against other players. Music is nothing like that. You just listen to it. And while you may not pay much attention to the lyrics, other people do and it influences them in a way.
Why do you care anyway.
Seriously, why is everyone acting as if being a little altruistic is a crime. Hello? As far as I know - it's not. lol
Its completely fine being altruistic, but why here. Why not go to a music forum where you will find strong or even educated opinions.
Yeah my point is exactly what you said. Music is not real. Its just talk. So is art in general, anything that is not the actual act is not the act.
When did I imply I didn't listen to lyrics.
Here is a NYT (Leftist I know whatever right) article Here. It describes that 'that watching excessive amounts of TV as a child or adolescent — in which most of the content contains violence — was causally associated with antisocial behavior in early adulthood.'
However, it goes on to say; 'What’s missing are studies on whether watching violent media directly leads to committing extreme violence. '
This study actually relates to TV, which is a source of media like music or video games, and can be related on the groups that they are both audio-visual stimulus.
This peer-reviewed journal entry by the Pediatrics (which published the other study I referenced before)
'Although the emotional response to music depends on the way it is presented, it is also true that it is closely related to the age of the listener and the experiences or preconceived ideas they bring to the music.'
Which this point, I would agree if you went for a more divergent stance making music 'rated' and only being able to be listened by a certain age. This is already done for the most part, but maybe a suggestion towards enforcing impressionable kids.
'To understand the importance of music in the life of adolescents, a survey performed in the early 1990s of 2760 American adolescents aged 14 through 16 years revealed that they listened to music an average of 40 hours per week.'
Jungle Fever/Conversation Piece? (Don't have the details)
Kanye has also tweeted 'Stevie Wonder never had to use the word bitch to get his point across.'
This showcases the fact that as time has changed, to get a point across requires new words, a new medium. It changes.
Whats to understand here is that we understand that media can influence, but we do not have the information to establish a exact correlation. To gain stats on this would require a large amount of samples. The problem is that denoting the population for a study for this kind of interest is difficult because it is a influence that is naturally occurring.
If you want another Stevie Wonder or Marvin Gaye (QUEUE THAT FUKIN SLOW JAMZ ON FUKIN REPEAT) then you can find someone like them maybe. I know this is not your point, but yeah.
Again, not the place for this kinda conversation by a long stretch. Go on /r/music or /r/hiphopheads or /mu/ or something. I mean those are not the best places, but its a giant improvement over here lmao.
Also, slightly off the main topic. Role models are chosen by people, and not for their entire being. Someone can be a role model or someone can establish incredible feats while being acutal (no bs) insane eg. Pythgoras.
One more thing, (how'd I not see this ealier)
And while you may not pay much attention to the lyrics, other people do and it influences them in a way.
This is a fallacy if you relate it to just music. I can watch anime purely for this entertainment content, and still look at the underlying messages of it.
Common, Catcher in the Rye? We know that shit is not real. People ARE influenced. sure. 100%. But look at to what extent. 4 'Claims/Associations' of shootings with 65 million copies sold. Its such a outlier that you can conclude that it does not influence people yet it has examples where it 'has'. As a result, if it is not the book, it is the person, and the person did what they did because of their own being.
People are more or less prone to what they can be altered by. I love the fact that we can have all this kinda shit twirling around. People hear and listen to all types of things. Depressing, mean shit to bright and motivating. The cultivation of genre and adaptions of time of music will always happen, and now music has becomes its own beast. People can listen to things, and feel sad, as with nearly anything else can that protruded to that feeling, like tv, media consumption like facebook and video games.
If I see a facebook post about something sad, or something I dislike, do I block it or do I read through it? I may not like it, it may even be disturbing or completely disagree with my opinion, but it still exists, and weather it is popular or not, or has any effect is based on the commutative effort or human beings.
and now a legitimate question what the fuck*beep* is a sourdough errrr first off sourdough is a misuse of language we should be using sourdough starter that being said sourdough starter is a leveling agent aka a thing that will make your bread rise r
