You know what I hate
« on: December 20, 2013, 11:57:37 AM »
People who call classical music study/sleep music.

I was talking to do this chick, and she was like "oh yeah you play play piano well I like classical music too."

I'm like "cool, so who do you listen to?"

"I listen to chopin when I study, and to mozart when I'm trying to fall asleep."

Usually, I'd have a problem with my music being called sleepy/study music (or at the very worst, "Disney music").

However when I write lullabies and berceuses, I find that that is the time I want most for my music to be called sleep music.

I really don't know why you "hate" this. (How old are you, btw?)

I also play classical music, preferably Beethoven sonatas or other piano music, when I work hard at my computer. Also often when I want to relax. The music is perfect.

So? This does not mean that I never listen in a more active, concentrated way. For heaven's sake, I'm a pianist!
My mother used to listen to the "Elvira Madigan concerto" (Mozart) when she was pregnant with me and wanted to relax. She told me that once, when I just had told her how much I loved that concert ... have loved it all my life ...  :) ... My parents dragged me to classical concerts when I was very young. First I found it boring, later on I liked it very much, so I have enjoyed classical music for 47 years, or even longer if you count the months before I was born ...

How can you listen to Beethoven sonatas when you want to relax?  :o
When I listen to them I stop whatever I'm doing and just concentrate. It's stronger than me  ;D

To be fair, the Dies Iræ in Verdi's Requiem is quite intense. It makes sense someone would associate something conveying the world being torn apart and the perishing of the wicked with anger.

This usually crosses my mind.  They relax to this stuff?

Mahler 6


Schoenberg: Verklärte Nacht



Actually I could see it.  If the tones are pleasant.  Dissonant maybe.  And if it's a recording you could always lower it.


Sounds like "top 40" classical music is what they're talking about though.

What's wrong with calling it a chick?



It's just slang, no need to take it personally.

Calling a female an "it" is worse.

In general: +1, but your phrasing also needs correction: In modern English, you can't use the word "female" as a noun to refer to women.
P.S.: If you tell me that you also hate nerds, I promise you I will not be offended. ;)

He/She just did, yet you don't see the moon crashing down, a better suited concept would be, it isn't proper to refer to the ladies as females.

I also got "punished" with a symbolically lower score in a mock TOEFL test for using the word "ladies" to refer to women in general. The remark was that it sounds "demeaning" to the ears of modern English speaking women when the word is used out of a proper context. Why do they teach that kind of rules to foreigners if it doesn't matter in real life?
The majority of people living in English speaking countries use a very unproper version of the language, but it's common to teach us foreigners real English :)

I'm not exactly one for jokes. I don't care for most jokes, as they are either uncreative or course these days.

No, all they need is a good lashing with a switch. There wouldn't be noisy kids in restaurants if parents still used discipline.

If you are trying to be funny, you're not. In fact, you have no idea how incredibly offensive your statement is. I don't even know you,  but if you are being serious, I would not hesitate to hunt you down and cut your throat, you no good piece of sh*t.

Thank God in Heaven someone agrees with me. Children used to have a sense of etiquette, obedience, and respect for their elders. They had those qualities because right and wrong were very clearly outlined, and children would see that everything had consequence. As the old saying goes: spare the rod, spoil the child.
