    komrad, a wagner fan? I read a graphic novel interpretation of Reingold(probably spelled wrong) it was one of the best books I've ever read. Reading about Wagner's dream of the perfect art form(he refused to call it opera because back then: opera's were all sell outs lacking artistry) makes me wonder about what heights theater would have reached if it wasn't for TV

    You've bought into the Wagnerian BS. Just because Wagner said all the opera of the time lacked artistry doesn't make it true. Wagner was an egomaniac who would rather denounce Bizet's opera's, which were immensely more popular than his, and bitch about Judaism than try and find a way to make his operas popular. That being said I appreciate the concept of music drama, but in practice I find Wagnerian opera incredibly boring. Bizet's Carmen on the other hand is really easy to listen to. I think this has more to do with the popularity of Bizet rather than him lacking "artistry", however one defines that.

    Also, Wagner's plots were taken from German folklore.

    Finally to quote Nietzche, "Wagner is the most ill-mannered genius on Earth"

    Is it that surprising?

    Yes, I do like Wagner, mostly because when I was younger I read the Eddas the Nibelungelied. The Norse stories were an interesting contrast to the to my other interested at that time, Greek mythology. Where the Greek pantheon was decadent and invincible, the Aesir were heroic and courageous. Where Zeus was a philandering hedonist, Odin was everything a king of deities should be, sacrificing his eye for greater knowledge and power, working to prevent Ragnarok, and when its inevitability became certain, determined to go through with the prophecy with grim determination.

    Gone a little off topic I have...

    "Wagner's plots were taken from German folklore. "

    And?

    "You've bought into the Wagnerian BS."

    I do get carried away, sometimes, but no I do not buy into it, I have as many cents as I did before reading his stuff, although I've never finished any of it, do you imply that I'd be poorer if I had?

    I haven't seen any opera's, so I shouldn't comment on them. Wagner said they were sellouts, but of course, he is one of them, and so he is bias.

    What I speak of is that we have all this technology, and with neural physics we have this understanding of how music and lights can be used to create visual and audio illusions. To do so takes a lot of effort, and it's much easier to use a computer to generate whatever effect we would like, and record it on a video. The part of opera being sellouts is a blind and probably wrong assumption, and even if they are sellouts, that doesn't meen they lack artistry unless of course your an artistic elitist, of which I am far from. I will call someone a sellout if that is the only term I know them by, if they(or their fans) do not want to be called such, they can tell me not to, and I have no bone in my body preventing me from listening.

    arcane is into the right kind of music because 8) i love metal too... i generally enjoy anything that has the word metal after it... (come on.... *insert smart ass comment here* i know SOMEONE is gunna do it!! )
    i generally also like techno, trance and house.... because i can do something and still be listening to my awesome trance music and realize that my music hasnt changed track and that im not constantly changing songs every 30 seconds or so!!
    a little bit off-topic but still fine....

    Marcus, what was the name of this graphic novel you read?

    Of the rock groups I listen too, Led Zeppelin, Queen, ACDC, and Dread Zeppelin rank pretty high.

    It's a trilogy, like the opera, called "Ring of the Nibelung"
    by P. Craig Russell. I guess he's done multiple graphic novel adaptations of opera's.

    here's volume 1

    My favorite music is Hard Rock or Metal becaue they scream. It's usually angry lyrics, but they always put me in a good mood. I listen rock and metal all the day.

    I like so much that ill rather list what i DONT like:

    Hip hop, rap, RnB, Rap, Jazz.

    There are exceptions but i generally dont like those.

    I prefer most types of trance, rock, metal and classical.

    Edit: And listing rap twice was intentional.

    Jazz (bob, cool, hard bop, etc) and blues I can't live without. As long as I have Muddy Waters and Miles Davis lurking around somewhere, I can manage :-)

    But I've been listening to some of the modern rock: Godsmack, Alice in Chains, a few others I can't name off the top of my head... That sort of music helps me write. I'll also mix it up with Zeppelin, The Who, Boston, Chicago, and Ted Nuggent. I can listen to Stranglehold any time... there's just something about that tune.

    I personally like to listen Classical music during study time. It is very quite, cool and enjoyable music which can change my mood and provide a better quality of life. Really this is the best entertaining music.

    Every time I thought I hated a genre of music something came along that blew me away.
    Atmosphere helps, and alcohol, and VOLUME.

    I mostly listen to indie-rock, indie-pop, some classic rock, and electro. I occasionally take forays into hip hop, but I don't listen to country.

    I'm also a patron of the local opera company and purchase season tickets, the 2011-12 lineup doesn't have me too excited. They're doing The Marriage of Figaro though, which is a crowd pleaser and always fun.

    My classical music taste favour the 20th century: French impressionism, German expressionism, and post-war minimalism.
