Bigger and better

I just heard Madonna’s new single, “Revolver“. It’s a good song, but it’s not as smart as it could have been. Upon listening to it, I immediately imagined it with a cleaner electronic sound, reduced auto-tune, with traditional Chinese singing/sound at places, and even with some hard guitars at some other spots. In other words, I needed a “bigger” tune that the one released, one that’s more complex musically (one that had many genres combined). Same thing as I like TV shows and films to be like.

And this made me think. What’s with me and “bigger”, “grander”, “more”?

Really, this is a problem. Why the hell I can’t be happy with whatever is being made available to me? Why am I after “more”? Is it because most of the available products/art are indeed “cheap/easy” and mediocre? Or is it because I am thinking too much about the whole thing and don’t let life just flow?

Maybe the answer is in both. Truth is, I am difficult to please. And I just can’t change that. I don’t think I will be finding nirvana any time soon.

“I am difficult to please”

People who are difficult to please are the ones who make thing change and who innovate. If the cavemen were pleased, we’d still be living in caves. So it’s a quality.

“I don’t think I will be finding nirvana any time soon”

If you want to find nirvana, you should listen to Nirvana, not Madonna. 🙂

At the risk of soundy spooky, maybe there is a empty space in you that you are still trying to fill.

Please don’t shoot!

I can understand you so much. I would not listen to the latest crap from madonna, but i know this behaviour of “wanting” perfection very good.

It sounds like you are about to innovate and come out with something new and fresh. Go for it!
