Music Lyrics

I would like to take this opportunity to rant about today’s music. I would have to say that overall it’s pretty gross, and while I’m no innocent, I’m beginning to understand why my mom didn’t let me have that one Eminem CD when I was in middle school.

Going out to the clubs and dancing is one of my favorite things to do. It’s fun and it’s not meant to be good, clean fun- well at least not at Fever. However, when I hear lyrics like “Do the Helen Keller and shut your lips” I want to find the writer and singer and slap them both. However catchy songs may be, the messages they send are really destructive. It’s hard to control obviously, and I wouldn’t want the government to regulate every little aspect of our culture, but where is the line drawn?! Aside from music, my mom was telling me about a new video game that’s on the shelves. Literally, the entire premise of the game is to rape people. How the heck does that get through the red tape?!

I’ve already touched on society and morals in this blog, but as I mature and begin to think about bringing little gingers into this world, I’m scared for their welfare. I can’t shelter them from everything, and I wouldn’t want to, but when you compare today to 20 years ago, and look at the differences in society, you can only imagine what another 10 years will bring to ours.
