Perfectly Acceptable Ashley

It's perfectly acceptable:

  • to feel like I need to educate a group of people who think Bruno Mars is a great artist. Look, I'm a music snob and I know a good amount about music history and what makes an artist a legend deserving of praise. Bruno Mars, to me, is but a mere back-up singer. What's sad is, the music that gets all the attention now-a-days is pure crap, laced with computers that perfect voices (that give every song that annoying robot sound), and so in comparison, I'm sure people think Bruno Mars is decent. Oh, poor kids...they have so much to learn; and thus, it is my duty to teach! (I may or may not gotten into an argument about this while watching the Grammys).

  • to bow down to Adele and believe that she deserves it all...

  • to use "sneaky journalism tricks." At least, that's what my dad calls it when I debate an issue and use big words.

  6. Sneaky journalism tricks sound suspiciously like sneaky lawyer's tricks. "Your Honor, I'd like to move for a bad court thingy."

    I'm not too familiar with Adele, though I hear she's great. But that photo is bad ass. "What was that critics? I couldn't hear you over the armload of Grammys I just won."

  7. Amen on the Bruno! (and I *am* a music snob).

    I've had three different friends send me copies of '21'. I remembered liking '19', but for some reason I can't get past track 3. That's not to say she doesn't deserve what she's gotten ... I guess I just haven't *absorbed* it yet. ;-)

  8. That picture of Adele makes me smile, and reminds me of how I felt seeing Lauryn walk away with her Grammy stash years ago!

  11. Personally, I don't care much for Bruno Mars, but I know he writes a lot of music for other artists, as well as himself, so I definitely give him credit for that.

    I do like Adele a lot. She's got a wonderful, soulful voice. And she seems very humble and down-to-earth.
