Currently, there is an assault on classical music by today's millennials. I'm sick of them trying to tear down things that are cool, and leaving us with the things that suck! They want "equity and inclusion". But they want classical music to die off, never to be revived again. I say fuck that! Mostly because their reasons for doing so are nothing but insane, narcissistic and stupid!! I saw a video last night of a girl who wants everyone to stop listening to classical music and start listening to world music. Her reason? Because classical musicians are all white, straight men from Europe who lived in the days of colonialism. So, she says anyone who would rather listen to classical music than rap or R&B is a 'racist'. That's the stupidest single reason I've ever heard in my life of why I should not play classical music!!!
Let me tell you something, little girl! NOBODY tells me what I can and cannot listen to. You'd have more success telling a black ghetto rat to listen to classical music than you'd ever have getting me to listen to rap or modern R&B. I'm the most stubborn, set-in-my-ways kind of person you'll ever see. I'm so stubborn, mules cannot cope with ME! Ask anyone who knows me. You want me to stop listening to classical music and start listening to world music, you're gonna have to wait till I am dead. THEN you might have a chance. Wouldn't matter anyways because I won't be able to hear it! LMAO!!! I'll be dead, my sound receptors will be dead, my brain will be dead so. Play on after I die, I wouldn't care. But if I want to put on a classical music disk, I'm gonna put on a classical music disk. Nothing you can say is going to stop me either!
Ya know, I kinda wonder if millennials are reading my blog? I was talking about this kind of thing not too long ago on here when I was discussing working on my video books. I said when it comes to background music in my videos, I prefer orchestral music. Which is like classical music. I use a lot of classical music clips in my videos. I think it sounds better in movies. I also know of a lot of old cartoons that also use orchestral/classical music. That's why I love watching those old cartoons and movies. It's the way that kind of music makes me feel. When I am listening to it, or choosing clips for my videos, I'm not thinking about what color the composer's skin was, or where they are from or what time range they were alive in. I'm not even thinking about what the composer looks like at all. I listen to a piece, and I just think "That'll sound very good at the 3:50 mark on my video!" Or something like that. Or "that's perfect music to use during this scene!" And it usually works out great!
For my last video, back in 2020, I even hired a real percussionist to give me a long bass drum roll for that scene where Davy and this antelope get caught up in a huge snowball and go reeling down this cliff. It was a small part for him, but he did it! Very well too, I must say! I didn't ask him if he was black or white before hiring him. The only thing I required was that he used real instruments. Because electronic sound bytes sound just like that; like electronic, robotic sound bytes!!! Just like they came from a keyboard, instead of a real instrument. Yes, I have some of those in my videos, but I'm going to change that after the holidays.
But as for modern rap-style or R&B style music in my videos, it's a definite, big ass fucking-the-hell NO!!!!! I hate rap. I like a few rap songs, but nothing after 1990. Same with R&B. The last good R&B song I heard was in 1991. Nothing since has sounded good to me. And it's not because they're done by black people. Its because I just don't like rap or R&B music. They don't fit my videos where I like to portray sweetness and innocence. Yes the characters have problems with each other. But I still like the music to fit with the mood. If I feel there is a scene in a movie where a rap or R&B song would fit, then I'll use that style. But I won't use something just because a dumb millennial doesn't like white people and wants us all to promote black music. Not going to happen. That's not what UMG Productions stands for!
There are advantages to listening to classical music. I once heard in a report many years ago that listening to classical music makes you smarter. Maybe that's why today's kids are so dumb and hateful. Because they don't listen to classical music. In that same report, I heard it has been studied that pregnant women who listen to classical music give birth to smarter kids. So, we need more classical music! Whether you are black or white, I don't care. Create more classical music that sounds good!
But what does rap music do? So far I haven't seen rap music do anything good. All it does is teach kids to hate each other, disrespect adults, kill cops, and all that stupid junk. That is why I do not want rap music or R&B music in any of my videos. I want people to feel good listening to my videos, as well as watch them. I think it's a horrible thing that we don't have innocent kids anymore. This is the effect rap music has on today's kids.
