Negative versus Positive
The last few days i have seen a side of SL
that i only knew out of stories.
Negative rules over Positive
Its a side that i dont like myself,
i do things that i feel i need to do, regardless who or what it is.
I have decided to stop my other blog,
it isnt even started yet so i didnt loose that mutch time on it.
it is a waste of my time to continue, so why even bother.
What makes me wonder is the attitude of people,
some people are seem to getting more out of negative things
then out of positive things.
I dont get that ?
People IM me, using words they shouldnt use.
Offcourse it is an image, a way of communication, a way to look cool.
i see it as a lack of intellect to use normal language to express your feelings.
Normal and adult people dont talk like that.
I never use swearing words in my replies, it looks childish to me.
So i dont like to see it used to me,
IM’s and messages like that go to the bottom of my things todo.
I reply, because that is the decent thing to do,
but offcourse it is a waste of my time and energy.
Lucky i can multitask,
so i can still have fun at the same time, thats the good part of SL ~lol~
People show me chats and stuff like that, what is that ?
Do i care to see that ?
Besides the fact that it might be fake cause you can change words, names and times,
i really dont care what others say about me or think about me.
Yet again people focus on the negative side,
trying to achieve something or proof something.
What that “something” is, i dont know.
I read it, smile about it and dont care,
i can not check those messages myself.
So i really dont know if its a real or a fake one.
Negative overrules Positive.
I was helping a friend with some PC problems,
asking around for solutions, and some gave good responses,
thank you very mutch for that.
Others doubt my intentions with this as well, why ?
What do you care who i help and why ?
I ended up in a conversation that almost made it sound it was a crime to help someone,
making it sound i do this to get attention or something else.
Again i don’t get this ?
Helping people is good, and offcourse it gets known.
People talk about it on SL or RL
I heard about a musician who sended a piece of equipment to another one because it wasnt used anymore.
I remember Michelle’s first gig with her new computer,
fans on SL bought that for her.
She was blast away with it and gave a very good thank you gig.
Heard other stories about things like this, if i remember it right
( dont slam me if i am wrong, because i wasnt online back them so it is all hear say )
their was a benefit at The Merry Prankster one time to raise money for a computer for someone.
Hexx and Jsmn gave Soundcircel new equipment together with an anonymous musician who sended great stuff.
heared stories about money collected to support people and family’s, or to buy things for others.
Not to mention all the charity events.
And yet people wonder why i would help someone ?
I dont need to explain what i do and why i do something ?
it is not your buisness at all, it is my and the other persons buisness.
Negative overrules Positive.
I was accused to have a secret Agenda ~lol~
we all have an agenda, you might not say it or pretend to have none.
But we all do have one.
Your agenda might be to get gigs, or more listeners,
your agenda might be to get more visitors in your venue,
your agenda might be to sell more clothes
My agenda is to see if i can help people that i like.
Nothing secret about that.
I cant help it that this gets out, people talk.
often they talk more then they should but that is a fact of life.
I end up in conversations where i almost have to defend my behaviour,
why is that ? i dont owe an explanation to anyone.
People have called Soundcircel a karaoke guitar player,
negative overrules Positive.
According to the dictionairy Karaoke is :
1. A music entertainment system providing prerecorded accompaniment to popular songs that a performer sings live, usually by following the words on a video screen.
2. The performance of such music.
Yes Sound plays in a 10-12 songs set, 4-5 covers.
Yes he plays along with ( self recorded ) backing tracks.
No he doesnt use a video screen or score sheets.
Again a thing that is considered to be negative in that persons view,
is overruling the positive thing :
A guitar player who performs 6-8 original instrumental guitar songs on SL.
Your own music can not be karaoke in my book,
so the fact that someone uses backings is a negative thing ?
I thought SL was over that by now ?
Some play only acoustic guitar,
some use backings,
some use loopers
Witch way you choose is personal, and you can allways turn it into something negative.
People could say that someone who only plays acoustic
is not capable of playing other instruments
( we dont know that, but you could say it because he/she only uses the guitar )
lots of times you can hear them go through papers with lyrics and all
or look for the tabs.
We could focus on that as well, but why would we ?
People could say that using backings is not the real thing, its karaoke
( still the musician plays/sings live )
People could say that using loopers is the same as using backings.
You record your own backing on the fly
( or select the right pre-setting where you allready recorded music on,
we cant check that offcourse )
We should focus on the positive side instead of doing this “focussing on negative”
You are all musicians, doing the thing you do best
Enjoy the music, or dont go to a show.
Love, Peace and Melody
