To confess, I meant to post on this blog every other day.
But things happened, and there was stuff and shenanigans. Beautiful word, shenanigans.
I'm debating myself right now: should I post about music, or something normal like that - or about Doctor Who? Because there are many things waiting to be written in that area. "Ten vs Eleven: Why All the Hate?", "Closing Time", and "What I'd Like From Series Seven".
I think I'll go with something sane and post about music.
Next time is Ten vs Eleven.
Everyone thinks their own taste in music is the best, right? For instance, my "Top Twenty-Five Most Played" list on iTunes is made up of Trock (Time Lord Rock, for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about) and songs in the "Alternative" genre. And one lonely pop song. And that's the way I love it.
But really, most of the music I listen to is on YouTube. I find it on fanvideos, and sometimes I get a bit overwhelmed at how many amazing songs there are out there - ranging from comforting violins and regretful lyrics about secrets, to more electronic, angsty things.
But something that's struck me is how powerful music can be. Words that would normally have no affect on me get deeper when set to a tune. It's the same with poetry, but even then, tunes can enhance a rhyme.
Music is such a great invention. It's like it's specially tapped into the place inside us emotion comes from. And can you imagine, in a world without songs, what creating the concept of them would be like? "So, I'm going to say something, except I'm going to let my voice get all blurry and go up and down while I say it." If I didn't believe in God, I think it would be pretty impossible to explain why music is so amazing, because when it comes down to it, that's all it is - someone sliding their voice around, or a musician pulling at a string or blowing into the right opening in an instrument.
But because it's meant for praising God, it reaches far down.
What kind of music do you like? How come?
