Ho hum. Another one of Michael's castration fantasies.

As a matter of fact, I think that's the genre....alt-castration. Or is it post castration?

There actually are absolutes. Whatever genre "Blood on the Dancefloor" belongs to is the worst genre.

<<old country is more fun than new country>>

It depends. I'd say that new country, as in alternative country/americana/roots music/no depression is as good as any form of country gets. Yes, it does have some of the elements of rock/punk/folk, but even "old country" often got popified. Can anyone say Eddy Arnold. I mean, the man is in the Country Music Hall of Fame and he was as country pop as they get.

No, when I began making lists of alt-country performers (no, I won't this time), I am amazed at what a stellar list there is. Assuming you are talking about today's pop country, you should try some of the country on the "darker" or "rootsier" side. Gram Parsons would be proud.

A LOT of new country isn't country. The way 2/3 of these bands sound, if they had of been around in the 70s they would have been called Southern Rock and would be opening for for Skynyrd, Allman Bros, Outlaws, Charlie Daniels, Blackfoot, etc.

Mike Nesmith is a very religious man, but he never allowed his beliefs to overtly influence his songs.

A true country/ rock pioneer who knows how to do it right.

...from playing their electric pianos outside the little grocery store entrances for the few customers walking in-and-out of the place between the hours of noon and 2PM, in urban Virginia, decrying the stupifying effects of drinking poisonous alcohol.

vivazappa,

You know, you could make a ton of money writing pop songs if you'd just put your mind to it.

My take on people from different parts of the country:

Personally I like all the east coast girls...they're hip and I really dig those clothes they wear...
Southern girls you know how they talk...well they knock me out when I visit...
The mid west girls whose dads are farmers make me feel alright...(or is that all night?)
But I do wish they all could be like the chicks in California!

I grew up in England and really liked the Outlaw Country movement: Steve Earle; Willy Nelson; Tony Joe White really made great music, on par with the rock we were listening to.
Bands like The Outlaws; The Eagles; Poco; Manassas that crossed between rock and country had huge followings. Right now, Americana is big business here from the commercial lite version of Fleet Foxes, Alison Krauss to the songwriting genius of Ryan Adams and The Felice Brothers.
What we can't relate to is that yucky, saccharin sweet nonsense that is leaking out of Nashville etc. And any artist/band that mentions Or alludes to God or Christianity (or any religious rhetoric) goes down like a lead ballon and won't get radio airplay.
In general, there is some extraordinary Country Music and like all genres there is a lot of complete garbage too.

That's how the word originated. Their necks were red from working in the sun all day.

Isn't a redneck someone who spends a lot of time in the sun without a hat?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 9, 2012 10:07:07 PM PST
Last I checked redneck does not qualify as a race.

After growing up in the rural west, the move to Boston was a bit of a culture shock. When I moved there, Boston had just passed New York in a survey of the "rudest" cities in America.

I immediately settled in without difficulty. The straightforward approach is most efficient and these folks don't waste time. It fit me like a glove--it's the one thing I truly miss now that I'm back in Colorado (well, that and the great seafood).

If by manners you mean Southerners are nice to your face and then talk about you behind your back and stab you in the back while Northerners are staight forward and you know where you stand from day one. Then I agree.

I grew up in the North and have lived in the South for 20 years now and there are nice well mannered people from the North as well as the South. Yes, rednecks are everywhere but there are good well mannered people everywhere as well. I consider myself well mannered and I ma from the North. There are differences in the way people act from different parts of this country but there are losers all over and there are plenty of great people everywhere too.

My comments about the Sourtherners being nice to your face but acting different behind your back is still a generalization, but I have seen it and there is some truth to it. It obviously does not apply to all Southerners.

I like the way he starts this thread with "No offense....." when it is so obvious that offending is his prime motive.

Does that make him a liar or just ignorant of his own personality?

As Oscar Wilde said:

You sound like some guy I know who always cuts down any genre of
music other than what he likes. Can't have an intelligent duscussion
with this bozo because he has a one-track mind, and is sarcastic to
top it off. No one wants to talk music with him, but he just keeps on
with the crap.
