Rant: I've had enough of this.

I don't understand why every time my opinion on something happens to be bad, a bunch of fans crawl out from nowhere and start attacking me, my abilities and my thoughts. I'm sick and tired of people saying that my opinions are 'merely a poor blogger's' or 'just from a kid'. What's wrong with kids or bloggers having opinions? I'm a kid and a blogger but I have a right to an opinion just like everyone else.

I don't know why some people don't understand what respect means and why they don't have any of it. If you say something bad about Westlife for example, I won't tell you you're wrong and that you don't know anything about anything. I'll read what you have to say and respect your views because that's what I think is right.

Then recently someone asked me who I was to be making all these kinds of comments and what I knew about music so I answered. I don't usually boast about things like this(I prefer living a nice, quiet life, thank you very much) but I answered the guy/girl who asked me that with exactly what I know about music.

My family has been in choral and classical music for the past 40 years, my father is the most sought-after record producer in the country, he's also one of the best drummers, my grandmother was the dean of the college of music at the most prestigious university in the country and she founded numerous choirs. I myself am a member of one of the best children's choirs in the country - our roots can be traced to numerous composers and European and American choirs(because of my grandmother). I know what I'm talking about, I can read notes like I read words and I can sing them. I play the piano, give me a music score and I know how to read everything on it. I have an extremely good sense of rhythm and time - my friends call me a human metronome.

Phew. So if that person who asked me what the hell I was doing talking about music is reading this, there you have it.

PS: I'd like to apologize to Ken for turning his blog into a firing range - I didn't think posting a comment like that would attract all these strange people.


  1. hey. apologies aren't supposed to be made.

    it's okay. I absolutely understand everybody has their own opinion. And maybe for some, our opinions are taken seriously and somehow personally. It's not your fault if you don't like Charice right?

    It's just a matter of understanding diba? :))

    And good for you for your musical background. I understand your point of view in a way.

  2. good lord. well trust me. the blogging world is a strange strange one. just let things roll right off your back is the best way to deal with it. You'll end up the bigger person by ignoring them. And in the end the people that really matter will continue reading your blog because they love your passion for music. I think it's ace :)

  3. Ken - Thanks and yeah - we all have different brains.

    Paul - aww. Thanksss.
