with very few exceptions, I believe that songwriters are the lowest form of poet.
some songs that make it into the mainstream just make me go wtf. and I have to wonder if the artists (and/or their supposed songwriters) just got lazy or needed some filler to make the track sound right, with little or no regard to whether the lyrics had any depth.
one of the most irritating things, I think, is when they use random sounds (ah, hey, eh, yeah, ooh) instead of actual words to make lines rhyme.
too often it sounds like recording artists are just putting words to music for the sake of having words to go with the music.
am I the only one who has noticed that all the ugly self-proclaimed bitches** on facebook are all over each other’s walls and comments like “hey girl, stay pretty/hot!” and “hello gorgeous/sexy/whatever”?
and on the topic of ugly people, the ones who are always pointing out how attractive they are? they’re the ones who slowly become uglier to me over time. I don’t know. I guess I think more along the lines of, if you really are beautiful and you believe it, you wouldn’t have to be constantly reminding everyone. confidence is great; there’s nothing wrong with being confident and comfortable in your own skin. but to bluntly post all over the internet things like “I’m so cute” and “the camera loves me” and whatnot - that’s just vain.
(I use the word “vain” knowing its actual definition, by the way. because most of facebook seems to believe that “vain” exclusively describes people who take many pictures of themselves. not so. there are hundreds of ways to express vanity. and what the word boils down to is basically “in love with oneself”. no one gets that anymore.)
when it comes to friendship, I don’t believe it’s necessary to let your friends know that they’re physically appealing to show affection. I don’t have a problem with the act itself — admittedly, in fact, I myself do like being called pretty or any variation thereof — but wouldn’t you feel even more gratified by someone close to you calling you their brilliant friend or something as simple as their sweet friend?
good looks are good to have, and it’s all good to praise them in others. but good looks don’t always come with a good personality, or for that matter a good mind and good intentions. those are the things that I want my friends, my intelligent, kind, considerate, witty, and yes, beautiful, friends, to acknowledge me for.
** the “bitch” rant is for another time. I have a lot of thoughts on that word and the use of it too. maybe on Thing I Wouldn’t Say on Facebook #4.
