So, I'm at work right now. The reason why I am even posting this thread is because I'll go crazy if I don't distract myself with my phone. I work weekends as a barkeeper to pay my rent an other shenanigans like food and gear whilst studying at university. We have a basement we rent out for parties and events and I usually stand behind the bar and pour drinks and mix cocktails. Now in the five years I have been working at this bar I have seen a lot. Lots off different guests, good and bad, all kinds of crazy horseshit. But tonight is different. The minutes feel like hours. I have a group of 18 year olds celebrating, they basically scraped together the sum to pay the rental of the basement (you have to drink it), they took 5 vodkabottles and some chasers and that's it. So the evening is basically done for me workwise, I have nothing to do apart from standing behind the bar and paying attention that none of the brats steals a bottle or tries to pour a beer. Usually I'm busy. Moving the whole time, my brain not paying attention to the hosts music (apart from really good songs when I occasionally start moving to the groove, I bet I look like a moron pouring beers whilst singing and dancing along to AC/DC). Well tonight my brain isn't occupied. And the music... is cancer inducing. Going all the way from Rihannas WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK to Nikki Minajs WHERE ARE MY FAT BOOTIE BITCHES FUCK SKINNY BITCHES to other gems I'd rather not try to describe. It's autotuned, rapped gibberish with lyrics a 3 year old wouldn't write because he'd know better, computer effects with synthesizer beats, shallow rhythms and of course compressed to hell and back. It hurts. It's making me angry. I am a person that gets aggressive when exposed to music I hate, the fact I'm not getting any tips tonight isn't helping exactly. I won't mention that music taste differs. I get it when someone listens to Black Metal, enjoys Free Jazz or Emo/Screamo. Whatever. Your taste, I get it. But this. This so called pop music 90% of nowadays youth seems to enjoy... I'm sorry but you have to be sick in the brain. Have they ever heard a real instrument? Before I go to deep into my rant... I'm turning 26 in 3 weeks, and tonight I feel old. Watching them youngsters. Going WOOOOOOOOO when a song about fucking bitches, taking drugs and hustling yo comes on. Maybe I'm slowly turning into an "old fart", maybe I don't get it and I'm the crazy one and they are sane. I don't know. Before I end the thread and let you guys add your opinions, a video I found a while ago that perfectly explains why pop music nowadays is so awful. It has become an industry: I hope I survive the night. Peace out.
