What is your opinion on the Jubilee and the Monarchy in general?
I fucking hate it. There’s no need for this archaic nonsense in modern society. It’s undemocratic, racially discriminatory, gender discriminatory, and religiously discriminatory. People are born into piles of money that could be spent on something much more worthwhile. The royal family’s work is completely fucking tedious. They more or less spend their time opening supermarkets and making small talk with people. If that’s really necessary then why not elect someone instead? As for the supposed tourist attraction, convert Buckingham palace into a fucking supermarket and tourists will still be fascinated because it’s where the queen used to live. I couldn’t give the slightest fuck about the jubilee and despite being for the British union I don’t want to have the flag shoved down my throat constantly in every single shop window. It’s so irritating. Why is the royal family’s wedding somehow totally incredible and worthy of media coverage, by the way? I don’t like having these arbitrary events shoved down my throat all the time. To answer your question, I hate the jubilee, and I hate the monarchy. Not as people, but as a concept.
Hey, just to say you're my favorite you tuber, hands down. Was wandering, do you have a favorite band, if so who? :)
The Prodigy, probably. Although it really depends on my mood. I tend to go through phases of listening to a certain genre for a prolonged period of time and then moving on to another one. It’s quite difficult to say.
I like your rants on youtube... a friend introduced me today with your video on legalising drugs. Keep uploading and I'll actually go onto youtube to watch something other than new music videos.
I’m planning on continuing. I have my camera back, hence the recent couple of uploads (How To Cure Cancer and Scotland’s Pish Education System). I’m also up to speed with my homework so it won’t be so delayed. The problem is, I’ve been false-flagged again and I’ve been denied access to my account for a couple of weeks.
Plus, I’ve recently underwent an operation for cholesteatoma in my right ear, and depending on how I’m feeling I might not be making videos for a few days after my suspension is over.
Also, it’ll be time for exams about a month from now. Everything’s very busy.
What music do you listen to, sorry if you already got this question before.
Rap (the good stuff, not Lil Wayne shit), progressive rock, indie, punk, some electronic music (The Prodigy are a good example of the stuff I’m into. I’m not a fan of dubstep) and classical music (broadly speaking, but more particularly composers from the romantic era; I’m a huge fan of Liszt, Chopin and Alkan). Apologies for the excessive bracketing, lol.
I’m watching this utterly putrid, vacuous garbage as I type this. These are my off-the-cuff thoughts.
To begin with, why is it that anyone who can sing reasonably in tune and control vibrato is instantly showered with endless praise? There’s a girl singing at the moment. Ignoring the fact that she could have chosen to go on a program specifically for singing, such as ‘The Voice’ or ‘The X Factor’, she didn’t have to pollute an already garbage show which is already saturated with these people anyways. Preferably, if she has talent she shouldn’t have to go on a talent show. That aside, her voice is mediocre at best. It’s good enough for an average listener with little to no musical knowledge to not be able to pick out any mistakes. If any act is passable as being mediocre, the audience give roaring applause whenever the judges give positive feedback, and boo whenever they give criticism.
Now, there’s a couple doing some dancing. One of them is wheelchair-bound, so instantly you can expect a considerable degree of sympathy from the audience. They’ve decided to include her back story in order to milk it a little bit. It was something about pneumonia, I can’t really recall because I was too busy whacking my face against a desk. To put it bluntly, though… You’re in a wheelchair. You can’t dance. You can move your arms around a bit, and that’s about it. And yet, the audience gaze in amazement for some reason. It’s really not that good. It’s laughable at best, plus the Rihanna music is fucking repulsive.
There’s a Hungarian basketball team on now. On Britain’s Got Talent. They’re not too bad, but they’re very limited. I’m not particularly mesmerised by the slam-dunking. Having been propelled upwards on a spring board I doubt it was that difficult. The acrobatics are a lot more impressive though. The only point where I really quarrel with them is the awful music. The usual 808 snare pop-rap.
I think it’s better I switch this asinine bullshit off rather than endure the torture and complain about it. I’ve seen enough.
