OH MY GOD IT'S THE FUNKY SHIZNITS??
yup.. that's a little pet peeve of mine.. music censorship.. here I am, trying to download that new BEASTIE BOYS song (shhh.. don't tell the RIAA!!) and, all I'm gettin' everytime I download the MP3 is the freaking kiddie-safe CENSORED version - with all the SHITS and FUCKS and wot'ever else replaced by dopey "YEAHS!", "WOOO!!" and "I LIKE ICECREAM!!" and shit.. I mean.. wot the fuck are these mutha-fuckin'-cunt-sucking-arse-clowns doing?? CENSORING MYYYY MUSIC!!?
you'd think by now.. that censoring all these words.. just makes them MORE taboo.. coz, OOOOOOH.. we're not allowed to hear these OH-SO-POWERFUL 4 letter words.. is that something to teach the kiddies? it just makes 'em want to say "FUCK!!" more.. coz they know it's gonna have an effect..
putting too much power into Taboo's just gets people wacky into real unhealthy fixations and fetishes with dead chickens.. and really, we DONT need that..
which is what I find so silly about MTV and the like.. you got booty booty bikini hoes.. the pimps.. the bling bling RnB.. Britney and Skagulera teaching the kids how to bump n grind.. the playas.. playa haters.. drive by shootings, gangsta this.. gangsta that.. get out me AKaaaY and BLOW ya ALL AWAY.. all really fun stuff.. and YET they CENSOR the F words? who are they fooling?
I do find it seriously cool tho'.. that they DONT censor the language in free-to-air tv shows past 8:30PM anymore.. seems so weirdly enlightened to free the floodgates.. FREEDOM OF SPEECH is a beautiful thing.. watching SOPRANO's is a beautiful thing..
y'see.. FREE SPEECH is COOL..
FREE SPEECH is SMART.. it respects your audience..
it makes you feel intelligent.. informed.. switched on.. adult..
bleeping out the S... and F...'s? makes us feel like we're 5 years old..
and lets face it, that's wot MTV and most music is marketed to these days..
