NO, I’m not getting all personal and mushy on this blog. At least NOT that personal like on my FB. This is a resolution that belongs to the e-circle SO it’s relevant to put it here. Only ONE and I seriously hope I could keep it. I’m planning to place in the “One-Strike Code” from here on out. What in the world is the “One-Strike Code”, right? Well, it’s operating on the whole concept with the ‘three strike rule’, but this is just one. AND no, it’s not following some political agenda, lol. It’s more like those basic principle of life with giving people some chances before you totally give up on them (aka you’re dead to me kind of thing). BUT I just said no personal stuffs, right? And I plan to keep it that way. I’m incorporating it into the whole e-circle thing. For the ones I support, they all get “one-strike” from now on, regardless of obsession level. I’m NOT talking about trying to be some moral cop here, so don’t go accusing me about poking into their personal lives. I’m basing it on their career as an entertainer. At least this applies for all singers, and because I’m more into music than watching stuffs. When will I get to the point? Umm…okay…let’s see. The “one-strike” thing points toward the decision of their musical careers and albums. More specifically? I’ll allow one album to suck, when it gets to the second album, I’m gone. (It doesn’t mean the album sucks to the general public, just to me since I live in my own little ‘weird’ world.) AND it also counts toward how they approach it with the presentation. Their styles could change and they could get all creative they want with the music. YET if they decide to change just because of trends OR some other lame reason AND try to sneak it out as art, I’m out also.
Why so harsh all of a sudden when my music taste is all over in the first place anyway? I actually like people who are unique with their styles or have unique voices more than if they could sing really, really, really good or not. (Singing ‘good’ is important, seriously, don’t get me wrong. But there are so many people who sounds similar nowadays that doesn’t stick out to me anymore.) SO of course, their differences from others had drawn me in. Therefore, if they want to weave in and be like the rest of the crowd, I seriously don’t want to waste my time anymore. AND the more important point is, my money didn’t fall out of trees. I only bought like 4 albums last year, of two were TV series soundtracks. The economical state is only a partial reason SO it’s not like I want to use that as an excuse to not support some people anymore. I’m just sick and tired of some people ‘selling themselves (short)’ instead of their supposedly ‘music’.
Believe me, I support all sort of music and love pop to death too, but I think it’s about time I filter out more deserved talents (to me). Besides, it’s not like my opinion matters anyway since those who I no longer support will probably still have thousands of fans with them, not much of a lost, right? Oh, sorry for saying this wasn’t about a personal matter. Perhaps it was after all, lol. Because it is indeed my decision.
*NOTE*: This was written way before New Years and I had planned to place it in on the 1st or 2nd at first BUT had opted to not sound so negative right on those days so that was why I waited several more days.
