Listening to music is very dangerous

Almost all of us loves music and connect with it but we need to watch out since science has proven that music severely affect our brains.

 

Time perception

 

To understand why exactly music makes it seem like less time has passed think of the human brain as a lion eating a bag of money.

It doesn’t matter what the zookeepers distract it with.

All that matters is that they give another zookeeper the chance to sneak up and retrieve the money while the lion is busy deciding which one of them to eat.

Similarly when your brain is distracted by music you’ll be less likely to notice things around you and this includes time.

Our brains have limited input capacity and when something else is using up that capacity we’re less likely to think.

The tricky is that it works the opposite way, too.

In some situations listening to music can actually expand perceived time.

 

Drinking

 

Did you ever wake up in a stranger bed and wonder how your dress got replaced by a stranger shirt?

Now you have something to blame it on besides your bad childhood habits: music.

In a study held by the University of Champagne, different types of music playing in the background caused drinkers to change how they’d described the drinks they already had.

Laid back music led people to rate drinks as mellow and upbeat music resulted in more people calling their drinks refreshing.

 

Fear

 

There is a reason that horror films scare the crap out of us and it’s not just the creepy settings and the sudden reveal of the zombie right behind you.

It’s the music.

And sometimes the Steven Seagal.

There are certain sounds that we associate with death because they trigger evolutionary fear.

Screams of fear in almost any animal are made up of what scientists have dubbed discordant noises and any noise that makes you feel very unpleasant falls into this category.

Next time you’re getting freaked out by a movie remember that muting it is a better decision than looking away.

 

Communication

 

Studying music gives you an advantage when it comes to perceiving the emotions of others.

People who play instruments can detect subtle emotional changes in others voice tone.

Also, the fact that they studied music makes them better able to tune out background noise so they can pay attention to what you are saying even at loud places.

People who have studied music have brains wired differently and this rewiring makes them better able to express emotions they are feeling and more able to understand the emotions others express.

This may explain why Adam Levine is so afraid of announcing he is gay.

Why everybody hates hipsters?

 

There is no other group that ever incites more blind hatred than hipsters.

The term arose in the 40’s to describe middle class whites acting like black musicians, now referred to as nerds.

The hipster rebels against social norms by paying way more attention to them than anyone else.

They were way better before they went mainstream and sold out.

Hipster is another one of those subcultures that is hard to nail down, just like emos have bitchiness and ghosts have scarring, hipsters can generally be identified by their completely unjustified arrogance.

While most well-adjusted members of society view music as an enjoyable addendum to life, perhaps a distraction or even a hobby, hipsters take music as a serious business.

Lacking of any other talent since a very young age they decided to exercise influence in the fields of listening to boring music and putting on ugly clothes.

Every normal person recognize these areas as something subjective and not worth giving much attention and this is why hipsters win every single argument on those matters.

The reason is very simple: they’re the only ones who care enough to notice what it’s going on about music or clothing.

If asked to define what it is to be a hipster the answers may be passion for obscure bands, obtuse fashion sense, cheapness masquerading as quirkiness and the most important quality; judging.

Hipsters judge items, activities, bands, companies, clothes, brands and above all, other people.

They don’t seem to realize that if someone is less savvy than you about something; it doesn’t mean you are a better person.

They are all the time making huge efforts to stay a step ahead of normal people.

It reflects deep personal weakness being all the time trying to follow the trending stuff instead of attempt to create something yourself.

I don’t think hipsters are cool at all, I thing not caring is cool.

Really cool people ignore the conventions of mainstream society, we’re rebels in a good way; we surround with good people and spread the charm everywhere we go without wearing any weirdo clothing or following every new band that comes out.

Everything about hipsters is constructed to pretend they don’t care; they care a lot about the way they look to make sure they end up looking like they don’t care.

That continuous effort on wearing rainbow shirts, listening new bands, reading twisted books and watching weirdo short movies ends up being mainstream.

But let admit something important, there is one positive aspect about hipsters, right?

Yes, they’re a big joke and we all enjoy watching them.

Backstreet Boys are a legendary band. Nirvana is not

Let’s start by expose that inspired on the success of this boys band there were various producers who created bands such as New Kids on the Block, ‘N Sync and Jonas Brothers.

 

There is no music group that ever claimed to be created inspired on Nirvana

 

Beyond the merely musical performance, the Backstreet boys have been involved in activities such as charity, politics and social work. They clearly are an example to live by contrasted with the fact that Nirvana leader killed himself.

 

Vocally speaking there is an outstanding difference.


Backstreet boys have their own musical style and performing grace and are great songwriters.

 

Kurt Cobain declares that his only hunch was to imitate the Beatles sound and unfortunately he dies before reaching that wish.

 

Another strong point is the Cover art of each band. Let’s the images talk.

And why on earth would anybody threats a baby life in a pool for an art like this?

Let’s finish by stating that the Backstreet Boys are nowadays an active band which reflects the creative power that this amazing group possesses and why they were, they are and they will be remembered always as a music legend.
