It's been a long time since I made an entry in the blog, and I miss my brainier, esoteric side. I think it's because I needed a tipping point to get back into the swing of things. That tipping point came in the form of the new controversial song "Blurred Lines"
I saw the original video, and then saw a parody shortly afterwards. The comments surprised me. It seemed like so many people were outraged by the original video, when I didn't see a huge problem. Yes, it involved nudity, but it was done in an almost artistic style. That prompted me to look into the issues, Blurred Lines's directors (surprising) intention for the song, and two songs.
So take this for what it's worth: I urge you to take an open-minded approach to controversial issues in mainstream news and form your own opinion.
