The state of "music" in this country can be best defined by the AMA "Artist of the Year" winner Justin Bieber.

Are you fugging kidding me?

What are those awards based on? Album sales and $$$, or actual musical talent?

This is pulled from a newspaper article....

"American Music Awards nominees were selected based on sales and airplay, and fans chose the winners by voting online. The 40th-anniversary broadcast from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles featured a tribute to Dick Clark, its creator."

http://seattletimes.com/html/nationworld/2019711711_musicawards19m.html

Best quotes:

"I didn't know lip syncing and autotuning were criteria for award winning..."

"The American Music Awards are officially a joke..."

"Not surprised... over processed crap is everywhere on the American landscape these days..."

During the summer I bought four tix to the Justin Bieber show in January. I figured I'd give two to my daughter for Christmas, then scalp the remaining two and recoup my total investment. Then this "One Direction" group shows up and all the girls love them now and don't really care for the Bieb. FML.

How old is your daughter? One of these girls is 17 and the other is 16 and they were just going on and on about it... these are very intelligent, straight A students and seemed very mature (aside from this), and I frankly found it very weird.

She's 14, a freshman in HS.

    • Interesting insight into dietary habits. I find that after 8 years in Asia my tastes are varied and I've learned what I like but i can adapt too. As an example I deeply loathed boiled cabbage since the days of school dinners. However, Kimchi is an excellent way of making cabbage which I had always hated palatable. I can't forsake meat but I can control the amount and variety of it that I consume. I definitely believe personally, that dietary habits acquired as a younger man weren't sustainable as I moved into middle age. I eat lots of veggies and fruit (which is still better than processed sugar). I have never liked the texture of nuts but if i chop them fine and scatter them in a salad I don't notice them. I subscribe to the idea that a mixture of food groups is best. My advice is re-try foods that you previously avoided since your palate changes. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/why-fermented-foods--sauerkraut-kimchi-and-yogurt--are-good-for-your-gut/2017/05/05/dd0c9a62-0e4a-11e7-9b0d-d27c98455440_story.html?tid=sm_fb&utm_term=.e08ddb81d322 I have many vegan friends in the UK and frankly their pallid unhealthy appearance despite vitamin supplements makes me highly dubious of it as a lifestyle. Maybe that's just an odd case or a uniquely English thing though.
