Ok, I see your point. Yes of course, you can't nail down any of the two on one genre if you're honest. Still artists often get crammed into one genre only. Maybe we should reverse the question: who is the first artist that comes to mind when you think of country music? To me it's Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton before any other artist. I don't know about you but some people I know will strongly disagree with me.


See I don't think of Johnny first but that's probably because unlike most, I don't think of him as straight up Country.

I think of Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette, and Dolly.

In the UK country music is - or was - rather looked down on as being too cloying & mawkish compared to other genres like blues or soul. Johnny Cash was definitely classed as country, but he always seemed to be respected in a way other country artists weren’t, & people (including my dad) who didn’t otherwise like country had his albums.

I'm still unpacking so I just saw the discussion on this.

I don't know what country music I was listening to, but it sucked.

I have a couple of Keith Urban songs myself and they are lame, and I watch NASHVILLE, but thats about it.

Yes, I agree with you on Keith Urban. Most of today's Country music is terrible.

Funny lesson about psychology:

My mother has worked a long time for a lawyer, and one of my friends is a lawyer too. Both told me the same thing:

Being a lawyer, you always have to struggle to make clients pay for you. People tend to think they never have to pay for a lawyer: when you win the case they will say "What? I'm supposed to pay for this? We won! The other side have to pay, they're the ones who lost!" - and when you lose the case they will say "Hey, I didn't want you to lose, you were supposed to win! Why I should pay you, you failed!" tongue

Now, there is a very simple trick to make people pay: just tell them in advance "Hum, this is a very tricky case. Doesn't look too good for us. But I will see what I can do." This is what you have to tell your client no matter what. Now, when you win the case, this time people will say "Wow! You made it, even though it was a tough one! You're really good! Ok, you are worth your money..." or, if you lose they will say "Well ok, you told me in advance it didn't look good for us... At least you put all efforts into it, it probably wasn't meant to be. But I'm glad you tried your best."

Funny, huh? wink

It's National Poetry Day here in the United Kingdom. Here's one of my favourite poems - David Shulman's Washington Crossing The Delaware.

A hard, howling, tossing water scene.
Strong tide was washing hero clean.
"How cold!" Weather stings as in anger,
O, silent night shows war ace danger!
The cold waters swashing on in rage,
Redcoats warn slow his hint engage.
When star general's action wish'd "Go!"
He saw his ragged continentals row.
Ah, he stands – sailor crew went going,
And so this general watches rowing.
He hastens – winter again grows cold,
A wet crew gain Hessian stronghold.
George can't lose war with's hands in;
He's astern – so go alight, crew, and win!

Read each line carefully to discover the poem's secret. wink

Farcebook indeed... I'm losing patience with that site. And I was one of its defenders! shocked It's just so dumbed down now. The shallow and trivial bullshit that trends on that site is dispiriting. There used to be a lot of interesting news on there but even my favourite pages and groups are dumbing their content down just to get more likes, or recycling old content over and over. I've had to un-follow some pages because they started posting BuzzFeed garbage. Facebook used to be a decent site if you went to the right places, but now it's just another collection of mindless popular culture excess.

It’s not just Facebook that’s dumbing down, it’s everywhere e.g. the BBC appears to think that someone winning a dreary overhyped cookery competition qualifies as “News” rolleyes

Yeah, I suppose it is everywhere. undecided

Speaking of overhyped shows, I find it really disappointing that Big Brother and The X Factor are still massively popular shows. Especially the former, the worse of the two evils. How is it still going?! shocked
