If you think about it: If the trend becomes like that of Mozart or Bach, pretty much EVERY pop artist is going to go bankrupt within weeks as near all of them have absolutely no idea what they're doing and just recede and disappear - we can only hope [:P]
It's probably been said before, but there's a big BIG difference between being an artiste, and being a performer, and then again being a businessperson.

Excelling in not just one, but ALL THREE categories, necessarily amplifies the odds and shrinks the pool of potential candidates.

Apart from Mozart, in (older) modern popular music, I think of Elvis, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Prince, MJ, Ozzy Osbourne, Gene Simmonds, Juan Gabriel.
I kind of think MJ and Elvis were light in the business-savvy dept, but more than made up for it in the performing & output areas.

But, it really does come down to personal aesthetics and de gustibus non est disputandum.
It's great to be around folks who can make informed decisions, but that isn't always the case.
Some openness is required, certainly.

M'kay.

So....

Curious, I picked a couple of tunes by Celldweller.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkCUJdmUarw

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMimeO279YE

I don't know how random a sample it is, since I don't know one song from another.

Soooooo..... how exactly is this guy/band like a modern day Beethoven?
What genres is he mixing in these songs, exactly?

:wat:
Despite the looks of it, I am not trying to bait or flame, or whatever.

I don't really know this kind of music, apart from stuff my son plays.
It sounds like there's dubstep, hmmm..., Eon sounds like it has some heavy metal chops/samples....
What else? [:S]
Educate me, plz. [:)]

The comparison to Beethoven is a bit of a hyperbole, nonethless the work is high quality.

I just realised that I've started using weird grammatical constructions in my speech:

"I found an interesting" meaning "I have found something that is interesting"
This just seems to be a drop of the word "thing", but it could be something else entirely.

"Do a follow" meaning "Follow me"
My theory on this one is that it stems from phrases such as "do the cooking" in that I'm changing the article to refer to an in-specific task and defaulting to the verb "to do" e.g. "Do a cooking" or "Do a food."

Has anyone else noticed interesting things in the way they speak? If so, would you care to share it?

"Do a" + verb is a memetic construct bud. You've been infected with memes.

Oh, hey everybody. I'm not dead. [xP] Just been VERY busy with moving and my new job lately, although with the holidays, I finally have some time to get caught up on things I enjoy, like the CBB!

I've still been active on CWS, so I've still been doing some conlanging, just not around here. It's nice to be back, though. [:D]

Yeah, it's the back end of Monday here. I woke up to the news this morning and didn't want to bring the room down (id est: here, the list) in the midst of what should be happy holiday times (for those whom this would matter). I'm bummed, to be sure, but am not as effected as I'd've thought. Grief fatigue in the face of many music icons of my formative years leaving us? It just hasn't sunk in on the heels of a lovely holiday? Already did histrionics over Bowie and Bing? It's a hard call...

However, were I to offer a prayer to any permutation of the Cosmos that might care to be listening to my supplication, it's this: Artists can come with issues, we get it! Of course, you know better than we, but how 'bout taking a break next year, and stop claiming some of them so early. The Universe will rock on, to be sure, but an extra song or two for us, on this side?

As the last of the suns nested and went to sleep, sure as the tides, the lights came out. Rising up from the bay, they flowed into the city streets, casting their pale blue glow onto the shops and parks the stay open and active all hours of the night. But though their movement seems natural, like water seeping into the cracks in a stone, the lights are only for real people. Somehow the lights never reach the magic-dead places, those dark and filthy alleyways where starving freg children huddle against each other in fear of their throats being slit as they slept. I think the lights know that we suffer. Do they stay away because they are ashamed, or because they do not care?

You've wandered into places both distant and perilous!

Sounds like the narrator is one of the freg children? Who are freg children and why does no one care for them?

They remind me of the home- and family-less Daine children back in the bad old days of the Old City. No one cared if one of them ran afoul of a gang of human youths. They could be killed or broken or brutalised with impunity.

And don't stop there! Lets keep it flowing!
