To Listen or Not to Listen

Great music is fundamentally less dependent on synthesizing technology and accruing production values. Thankfully I believe in classic artistry; voice and lyrics are purest forms of musical essence and no amount of technology can epitomize these factors. I have little or no time for current (popcorn) music; fads, effort, desire and white-collar commerce does not constitute to good music, timeless music. The old school will forever be my new school, Amen.

 

My preference (alphabetical order).

 

Alicia Keys

Édith Piaf

Frank Sinatra

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Sam Cooke

Tamia

Tupac Shakur

Superzeroes

I gladly hate superheroes, zero presence, zero character and all too often quite simply truly accidental! Live action adaptations of so called superheroes: embarrassing! I find the villains superior in every facet; in fact more often than not they carry the hero! Give me TC Top Cat any day, now TC would outhustle, outmuscle and outthink most superheroes!

Super, suave and sophisticated:

David Braben

TC Top Cat

Walter Bishop

Hanna-Barbera

Bobby, the Barbarian and Uni, the Unicorn

Bruce Lee

Skeletor

Megatron

Blade

Gambit

Dr. Doom

Joker

Magneto

Kingpin

Spawn

Daredevil

Bane

The Centurions

Mandarin

Superzeroes:

Spider-man

Iron man

Captain America

Fantastic 4

Green Lantern

The Hulk

The Flash

Superman

Work in progress:

Batman

Recreational

Recreational I state, recreational you read in disbelief; on occasions I need a break, human nature! Taking a step back or a genuine timeout can keep the mind and body fresh, free and sane! My recreational activity is ample on sports and somewhat diverse in a sporting sense which stems from copious amounts I picked up during my childhood; friends, family, magazines, newspapers, tv and good old teletext! Loyalty on every level is important for me so go Niners go, forza Azzurri, forza Milan and Pakistan zindabad!
