I recently saw that PTom @ Hello!Blog completely changed his blog to “AKBLOG” as his interest in H!P has dwindled over time and I couldn’t help but think to myself….was such a drastic change necessary?..as requiring an “alliance” makeover? And I’m certainly not picking on his blog or decision….(was it an April fool’s joke =P) PTom’s♥ a dear friend (ahhhh what happened to my Christmas present?…I’m totally kidding it’s okay =)♥ ). It just got me thinking….
Music is art with art in itself being beautiful because it represents freedom♥ and as individuals no one’s programmed to fall in love with one thing or another exclusively and really in all walks of life and interests and passions this lives in each of us uniquely. To be direct for a moment…music isn’t religion so why treat it that way? Why box yourself in as music is a freedom of self expression and if your approach to music is based on a bias or mindset of seeing in “blue” or “purple” with restraints based on such, your only reward could be possibly missing out on so much more that’s readily out there.
Tastes, spices, attractions, bands, idols. An open mind in any vein and not just with music can only enhance and lead to potential further passions and loves….enlightenment. You need only breath in what moves and attracts you and exhale that which doesn’t but with this approach you give yourself that benefit rather than drawing a barrier to even the unknown for some or prejudices without real substance as you’ll sometimes hear people say “I can’t like that because I like this…” but with that pretense you’ve already decided to sit before you’ve even put your socks on =/.
And enjoy whatever comes your way….new..old..unfamiliar…and it needn’t be categorized or even be a “whole” of anything…….a song is a song and music is music no matter what medium.
And the artists, idols, writers….producers who bring it all to life aren’t fighting against one another so why should a fan?…..
..they’re all flavors♥.
You need only grab a spoon to begin~.
