Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their art? To spend money on it?
No, not at all. Understanding the difference between one’s work and one’s views is important, which most people fail to see in multiple scenarios not limited to this. Why would I bother with what an artists does apart from his work which is the main reason I’m a fan of? There might be more aspects worth admiring, but if there aren’t, well that is simply none of my business.
Write about the subject you usually blog about as if you were a music critic.
While I understand (clearly) the difference between a review and my opinion, I give both extensively on various subjects and products. I don’t want to get in the general misconception of people, no regards for another’s or those who simply give up a thumbs up or down depending on other reactions. Coming on track, the only time I wrote a review pertaining to music was this one on Linkin Park‘s album LIVING THINGS. Otherwise I just like and prefer to sit back and enjoy it so far. As for blogging, I don’t stick to any subject, maybe I should instead write on blogging but that too I frequently deal with which you can have a look.
Tell us about a time you did a 180 — changed your views on something, reversed a decision, or acted in a way you ordinarily don’t.
This will be a very short boring post (sorry!). I can’t recollect something as such because I tend to change my thinking if the reason is strong and sensible enough, as it’s pointless holding on to something if there is a better way. There are many times I’ve changed my views both negligibly small to very polar opposite, that I can’t recollect at this moment. Sure I stick to most of my thinking too but I’m always open to change, as they say change is the changeless factor of life.
