Well that's 2.3 minutes of my life I will never get back, my ears and mind feel violated and abused now!

Thanks Tony.

Don't worry. More will come that you'll despise. It's life. No two people in the world like exactly the same things. That's what's great.

C, You have such a great taste in sound that you can make me watch your music without my speakers turned on over and over. That's how great your music is......it's on a whole different level. It's like telepathic or something....:)

I guess you need certain attributes to be part of this video. :P

P.S. Hubby preferred the other video with the pole dancer. You don't want to know what he said about this one, lol

What did he say? :D

Now for real, that pole dancer has to have an amazing amount of strength to withstand her whole body weight like that, sometimes with only one hand on the pole.

Yes, she makes it look easy but doing that takes a lot of practice, strength and skill, just like doing gymnastics.

I'd rather listen to the last one you posted and I'd probably remove my head before I did that again.

Latest does not mean good, I know you young folks tend to think it's not cool unless it's fresh and no one has heard it yet but in time you will get past the barriers of youth...

I think it's the other way around. Old folks don't want to embrace the new. I'm fine with old music. Pink Floyd is probably the best band ever. The Pixies, The Talking Heads, The Who, The Ramones, The Clash, Led Zeppelin. But If I put that here you wouldn't like it.

Don't be stuck in the past. Just because it's new doesn't mean it's bad. Heck you guys are old and all I see you talk about is new movies. Why? Because we don't live in the past.

When I said "all your music is crap" or something like that obviously I'm exagerating. There have been plenty of music I liked that you guys posted. I'm not gonna browse but I remember on the top of my head Cream, CCR, Fleetwood Mac among others that I don't like. I love.

I just ask to listen to the music I put "hear" with your ears and not with the notion of a specific time. Listen to it without preconceived notions. If you don't like it then ok but that's the right way to view anything, even covers. Just because It might be a great designer with 20 years of experience doesn't mean a young novice dude can't draw better designs or do better work. You don't know until..you take the time to check both out carefully.

Did he just called us "old folks"? lol

Although I hate to admit it, Tony's rant has a bit of truth. For my part anyway. I love my oldies, that's basically all I listen. It might be because I don't really like or care of what's new out there. Or it might be because music is not as important for me as when I was younger. Don't know.

Yes, yes he did, the little whipper-snapper  :D

I was just having a go at you too Tony. I listen a lot of new music but I find myself most often drawn to my favorites, same is true of movies, it's true I watch a lot of new films but the ones I watch over and over is a much smaller list, same is true of tunes, once is enough for most of the stuff coming out today, just like films...

Hahah...I know it's all friendly. I was having a go with the old folks aswell because you were calling us "young folks"...I hope to eventually get old. That means I don't die along the way  :D .

The only point I was getting is what Chou pointed at exactly. Sometimes, and doesn't matter the age people prefer the comfortable and safe to the risky and unsafe. But sometimes that risk can take you to beautiful places.

Just keep posting the music you love. That's the bets policy. Doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. It's what you like that counts. I'm just hoping you like some of the music I listen to.

When I say you, is all of you reading.

But it's only natural for people to have different taste in most things. That's actually great. If everyone liked bananas what would apple farmers do?
