I seem to have a problem.
Whenever I participate in a debate/argument, for some reason I end up fighting tears/tearing.

The fuck?

Totally detracts from my arguments lol. I really need to find out whether it's a problem or just some biological thing where certain chemicals in the brain trigger the tears or something.

Anyway. I've noticed that people like to use the "you don't have experience/can't do it so shut up and sit down" argument to validate their point. But to what extent does this apply?

Can a person's judgment of a certain dish be invalid because he/she is not a chef? Or does not know how to cook? How about singing or dancing? Do you need to be a singer or a dancer to tell whether a person does not have the talent or skill for it? It seems completely unreasonable to completely dismiss an opinion simply because it's not an opinion of the "expert" or simply someone that has the ability to do the aforementioned. On the other hand, there is a reason why it is considered the "expert" opinion. This also brings up the fact that even expert opinions differ. So. Really. All opinions matter, expert or not. How much it matters varies to individuals of course, but this argument really is too shallow to constantly apply to life. It is a weak argument when it has been proven that it isn't always necessary for an opinion to be backed by skill.

How about the argument that you have to challenge the norm/get out of the comfort zone? When applying this to cultural cues, does this excuse the fact that what you do is considered offensive?

IT. DOES. NOT.

It's all about how people perceive your actions. Society doesn't have time to bother about your intentions when they have their own lives to live. GET. IT. RIGHT. Ugh.

I love this. SO fun and playful.
And I'm pretty sure the song isn't meant to be taken seriously. The video and the tone itself shows this.
So. Chillax and take a joke yeah? It's the kind of song for people to just dance to and have fun.

Sometimes, I just can't stand certain people's way of thinking.
It's so... close-minded? self-righteous?
They just don't seem to have any sense of tactfulness. It's always 'my way or the highway' or just plain insulting.

They just don't care about hurting people's feelings.
And it aggravates me. Big time.
Like, how do you gain pleasure from it? Why do you have to put people down?

I've been missing for quite a long time lol.
Just been lazy and shit. Didn't feel like doing the whole updating thing.

Anyway, just came by to drop a random entry.
And say that areiaremixes/areiacreations (http://www.youtube.com/user/areiacreations) is the shit.
And that I quite possibly love trance music. Totally awesome.
I knew that I kinda liked it but now? Confirmed loving the trance man, confirmed.
