All this whining for winehouse

Music world mourns loss of Amy Winehouse’. ‘Amy joins iconic stars who died at 27’....etc, etc. etc.

Just because she died at 27 like Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin, doesn’t make her the same calibre mate.

Now the aforementioned, they’re good. I especially like Jim Morrison with his depth, poetry, philosophical views, etc. The Doors made really great ‘psychedelic’ music. But Amy Winehouse, well, it’s what i call music of the ‘ho hum’ genre. No big deal. Especially since quite a bit of her singing style was just a copy of the kind of styles reminiscent of the 50s and 60s - which i particularly like. When I watched some of her music videos and so on, i couldn’t help wondering if those kiddies cheering for her would actually have albums by Dean Martin, or the ‘Rat Pack’, along with others doing the same styles in their collection. If not, then we can put down all this whining for Winehouse to being ‘star-struck’ as opposed to really knowing what good music is.

And as for her boozing and drugging herself to death, and how many are viewing it as a tragedy, this is what i’ve got to say,

Well, i'll leave you with some good music. Idiots call it 'easy listening', i call it art. A term which i can use for the Rhiannas, Gagas, Winehouses, Shakiras, etc, out there. As for those who might say, 'well boy, it's just a matter of taste'. No mate, it's a matter of maturity. Good day.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Manifesto Against Same-Sex Marriages and Homo-Promotion

My stand against homosexuality is based on the following.  It is a logical, rather than a personal, decision.

Under the slogan, 'the freedom to love', it in principle justifies incestuous, group, etc, marriages.  All it requires is 'consenting adults', without an inquiry into what it means to be an 'adult' in intelligent, moral, and introspective terms.

This in turn encourages a ‘go with your feel’ tendency, which in itself gives rise a myriad of tendencies that go unquestioned.  Right and wrong ceases to matter, and even if something is illegal, one can still view it as society just having its own bias against it, just as it once had a ‘bias’ against homosexuality.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
