    No joke.

    My empathy has failed me one other time on JUB, on one other issue. I gave myself a headache trying to process that particular idea.
    Johann, if it helps you "appreciate" the structure of the genre at all.. my English professor used to regard it as a modern day resurrection of one of the oldest musical forms, the recitation of ancient world lyrical epic poetry, which was done to a cadence or beat.

    I know you, so if I Heard you say "I don't like rap" (or any genre), I know you well enough to know you'd probably have a list of reasons combined with a totally fair recognition that much of taste is subjective.

    I think where a lot of people come from is an attitude out there where if someone says rap isn't music... they're attacking it altogether as an art form, and usually have a set of very bigoted stigmas about it, the people who make it, and the people who like it.
    It's very difficult to form fully-researched exhaustive opinions about something that leaves a poor first impression. Even harder when it leaves a poor second impression. And that's my view of rap. I'm certain it has more to offer than I will ever appreciate, but getting there is such a chore that at some point you have to call off the search. And I'm certain if I knew the genre much better I would be better grounded in my assessment of it. I'd find more things to dislike and probably a few things to like, but for reasons which are thought through better. And, probably in some people's minds, less clichéd.

    I'm open to those experiences coming my way just out of a basic interest in humanity. But knowing what I know, when the math is done, my opinion of it rounds down to zero. Aesthetically awful. Uninspiring. Un-insightful. Hollow and commercial. Lowest common denominator. Talentless arrogance. Cultural dead-end. Reverse-elitist pandering populist claptrap….I even hate "cadence poetry" that you hear at "poetry slams" and other hideous and regrettable "spoken word" events. Though again in theory I am open to being amazed.

    But my point is not to pile on the I hate Rap bandwagon (though that is fun... ) My point is that the farthest you can get from rap at your local music store, is probably classical music. And it is likely just as pointless and impenetrable and dismiss-able to some part of our common society as rap is to me.

    It goes beyond different tastes. It goes beyond "agreeing to disagree" because we have different tastes. It is a bandwidth problem: the world is so big that we humans just don't have the time and brain capacity to fully understand the things we accept or reject. Especially the things we reject. Not just in art, but in politics, philosophy, economics….Even 2000 years ago the Library of Alexandria had hundreds of thousands of scrolls. Now with the internet there is no way to keep up.

    It makes me wonder how to promote social cohesion and neighbourliness in people who can be drawn so far apart by their different interests.

    For what its worth I agree with you as part of the audience for photography. Nothing makes my brain wilt more than hundreds of photographs from someone's holidays of nothing but "people enjoying themselves." They could be climbing a mountain. They could be in front of a blank wall at a convention centre in Birmingham. They could be at a shopping mall. Who can say? It's just some close-up of their giant heads. But they're always smiling, and high-fiving, and thumbs-upping, and downing shots in bars, and standing in groups, and generally getting in the way of the one interesting bit of architecture that I saw poking out of the corner of one picture. To hell with the people; show me the sights!

    Some musical genres speak to a certain experience or a certain background that sometimes others can't appreciate even secondhand, yes.

    For me that genre would be country. I just can't like it. However while I could go off on some rant about hicks and rednecks and annoying twangs and cowboy boots-- I won't because that's not the reason I don't like country.

    The fact that people who attack rap can never quite seem to attack the class or quality of the people who make or listen to it is part of why people get defensive about it. Your post unfortunately wasn't an exception. The inability to simply say "I don't like it" and the need to go further and attack what it represents, the class of people who it appeals to or whatever else-- is why people recoil and feel something more than a subjective dislike of the music is driving you.

    I was asked to do some portraits for a group. I told them I would under one stipulation - that I was in charge. I was going to take the photos as I saw fit, rather than what they were hoping for. I said "If you want photos of you standing in front of the pretty backdrop smiling vacantly, I'm not the right person for you." They thought it over, and decided to have me do it anyway.

    I didn't do anything weird. I just put them in unusual groups, and stood in weird places to get the angles I wanted. (I lay down on the floor more than once.) But the pictures actually came out really well. They were very pleased with them.

    With this in mind, I wonder if it would work for music? I could listen to the 1000 hours of rap music at night while I sleep.

    I don't suggest this in any way to learn to kiss anybody's tail, or anything. In my case, I would find it an interesting experiment in neurology, to see what would happen in terms of a physical brain.
    The words "Stockholm Syndrome" come to mind.

    Honestly, I've ended up finding things to enjoy in musical forms when I'm forced to listen to them. I was stuck somewhere where everybody listened to modern country in the early 90s for several months. I didn't come away from that with a huge appreciation of modern country (or early 90s country), but I did find songs I liked, and artists I thought were pretty good.

    Should people be forced to "get" bands and styles that they dislike? Not at all. There's nothing wrong with saying "I don't like (style)" or "(artist) doesn't do a thing for me". It's when people choose to deride the style, artists, and fans that my hackles get raised.

    well, i took your advice and WOW!!!!!! i don't know what it was. if it was the pic of the guy that i was jerking off to, the fact that it took like an hour to bust a nut, if the curtains was closed or if it was something else, i busted one of the biggest nuts in my life and i squirted. it landed all over my shirt and my right hand. think some of it may have shot out on the floor. DAMN!!!!! i just whipped some of it off my neck.

    then next thing you know, the upstairs phone starts running and i'm in total disbelief figuring whether i should get the phone even though there's still semen all over my hand and shirt or if i should continue to clean up. DAMN!!!!!!!!!! can't even say that it felt good. just can't believe i had all that much semen inside of me. i jerked off twice yesterday then took like a 12 hour break so i dunno if that was it. that's crazy.

    i'm contemplating on whether i should go to sleep for a second and then go to the gym because damn, that was too much.

    But my post wasn't even about rap; it was about life events and insights that are so different that it is difficult to even discuss the difference. The rap opinion was beside the point, though it did serve to illustrate it. Probably what rap advocates, perhaps including yourself, forget, is that rap can raise issues that provoke defensiveness as well.

    When I was writing my unvarnished opinion of rap, it is because I think it is better to express opinions, particularly when a person is willing to change them, than politely tuck them away. Do you think country music comes from a bunch of hicks and rednecks? If there is a reason you can't like country music (neither can I, btw) then what is it?

    I should have added in my earlier post an idea that runs throughout a lot of my posts on JUB: I don't believe calling something "cultural" entitles it to any special respect as an idea. I think we all need to be free to have conversations which are critical of various traits, attitudes, practices, art forms, assumptions, political structures, that some person or another might consider to be part of their cultural legacy. My commitment is to respecting people's individual humanity; but all of us inherit and create our own contributions to culture that are open to criticism by others. Sometimes people confuse the two.

    I agree with everything you're saying here. However, I think one of the disconnects we might be having is that class in the U.S. is so underdiscussed-- and when it is discussed, it's so frequently code talk for race.

    That's part of what people react defensively about, I think. And unfortunately in the U.S. it's almost impossible to talk about class and not talk about race. The overlap is enormous.

    You aren't from the U.S., so I'm just pointing this out to you that that's part of the difficulty of having the discussion with Americans I think when it gets into the issue of how the genre speaks to "low class" or whatever else.

    What could you find in a library that you couldn't find on line???

    2500 years ago they had the Oracle and the scrolls in Alexandria - today we have GOOGLE.

    Most porn stars look gross after a while, either with excessive tattoos or too many drugs.

    Most people don't even realize that they are heavily covered in cosmetics. Although there are some poor sites I have seen that are just lolz with the trash they allow on.

    Our library has no card catalog anymore, but the terminals are open for everybody to use to look up where something is. Then you actually walk over and get the book. I'm assuming ours will look like yours someday.

    Something else:

    Remember seeing those guys who'd start weeping when they saw a theatre getting demolished? Christopher Reed did that once. Now, after watching a Youtube video about Getchell Library, the same thing happened to me.

    What is it about seeing a building destroyed (or abandoned) that touches our emotions?
    We have a very great need to feel like we can experience a place where so many people have been before us. It's a connection to the human past.

    There's something that SEEMS very permanent about a building. They often last as long as we humans do, and sometimes much longer. No one moves into a house, or even an apartment building, thinking of it as a "temporary edifice". It's a BUILDING. It's DONE. You picture it being there always and always.

    I'm not sure we even have book and record stores around here anymore. Even most all of the video rental places are gone.

    Eventually the bookstores will all be like Redbox. Choose if you want Twilight 1, Twilight 2, Twilight 3, Twilight 4 etc.

    Then the machine craps it out, just like Bella's alien baby.

    We do have Powell's Book store in Portland, about 50 miles from me.
    They sell new and used books.
    http://www.powells.com/locations/powells-city-of-books/

    It's a city block large, and 3 or 4 stories tall. It's so large they offer a map to find your way around the store.

    A few facts about the City of Books:

    • 68,000 square feet packed with books.
    • We buy 3,000 used books over the counter every day.
    • Approximately 3,000 people walk in and buy something every day.
    • Another 3,000 people just browse and drink coffee.
    • We stock 122 major subject areas and more than 3,500 subsections.
    • You'll find more than 1,000,000 volumes on our shelves.
    It's definitely a day trip when I go there. A couple hours just doesn't cut it.

    We used to have Tattered Cover. It was a huge four-story building, with thousands of twists, turns, nooks and crannies...and books on every surface. A few years ago, they were forced to move due to a large rent increase. They moved the entire shop to a new location, and...it's just not the same. You can stand in one spot and see nearly the entire store, and it just doesn't have that FEEL that the old one did.

    Is it ? I haven't been there for a while. Last I heard they laid off a bunch of people.
    I skimmed their link - I didn't see anything about a closure, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Lex - you'd love it. It's full of nooks and crannies.

    I don't know if it's related to me having been quite sick recently, but I'm really struggling with one of my classes at the moment, and it's incredibly frustrating. I'm certainly not the most intelligent person out there, but I've never really had that much difficulty retaining information when a subject interests me. I just can't seem to concentrate at the moment though, and going over the subject matter repeatedly just leaves me feeling discouraged and exhausted. I need a break.

    ^Take that break man. I know when I'm not doing well in something I tend to push myself to the point of frustration and anger. You need to let your mind rest and refresh itself. then you can pick back up. Being sick probably doesn't help either.

    I literally just ate three. Peanut-butter chocolate chip, actually. I'd prefer them without the chocolate chips, but the place next door only has three kinds - chocolate chip, double chocolate chip, and peanut butter chocolate chip. I think the chocolate chip people are in bed with them. Anyway, they do bake the fresh, so...

    ...I'm SO not helping, am I? Um, they were terrible. Hard, flavorless. Could barely force myself to finish the third one.

    My bitch: I've typed "people" as "oeople" so many times, my iPad now suggests it as a word.
