    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.

    What's sad is that 90% of all white males in America under the age of 25 listen to rap (or some horrible hybrid like rap/nu-metal) instead of rock. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    If you add an E to the end, this is what it also represents musically!

    I'm not too fond of this so-called genre. And unfortunately I gotta hear it all the time on campus when it's booming from the loud speakers.

    Yeah, a little harsh, but i think some of it is warranted.

    My friend, a music major at Rowan University, defines rap as "more lyrical poetry than harmonic chord progression"

    Initially many of you would be inclined to say that it's barely even poetry, although SOME of the lyrics (there isn't much else) are very deep.

    In conclusion: 99% of it sucks badly.

    I do have good news however, I'm a white male under the age of 25 who knows what real music is!

    True. Guess I'm one of the few here who likes rap. I don't listen to it much - probably only about 5% of the time I listen to music - but I got quite a bit of respect for it. Some of the rhymes are incredible...there's some serious talent and creativity there. It's not as impressive as someone who can play an instrument like they were playing it since birth, though.

    The unfortunate side of rap is that there's too much of the following:
    1. "nigga that, nigga this", etc.
    2. shootin' and other general lawlessness
    3. bitches, ho's, etc.
    If there was less negativity I'd listen to it more. Not much more.

    I think rap is like rock in general. Most of it's not all that good.

    I blame that on the VH Trading Forums (just kidding, Scott!). So, who or what is to blame for the decline of rock?
