Life isn’t as hard as everyone likes to make it out to be, you just have to learn to pick your battles, and count any victory, no matter how small, as progress. Our lives are so inconsequential in the greater scheme of things that it is better to enjoy ourselves in even the smallest of venues than worry about any sort of cosmic event that may occur that we can do nothing about.
Today, I was tasked with downloading songs for a little cousin’s HelloKitty MP3 player and putting some of her, what I assume to be, favorite things to listen to. The list included -
The Jonas Brothers
Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montanna
Kidz Bop - 17 through 19 (Where children sing covers of popular songs)
And then there was a collection of other artists more than likely not good for a 5 or 6 year old to listen to, such as Nelly, Kid Rock, and Usher. So, here’s to hoping this is just some strange singularity in music tastes, and not the general opinion of the coming generation and what they are going to bring to the table, cause all I am seeing is a mixture of foul-mouths and bastardizations, topped off with whatever soup-du-jour of a tween singer we have on the news now.
