Title: Judging the music by the pictures you see?
Post by: Alice the Sister on March 01, 2008, 06:46:26 AM
Do you ever judge the music? Do you touch the music gently, and realize that it's a bit bumpy for this ride? In short, do you give everything a try, or does something about the pictures/OHP have to "grab" at you.

I'd say looking at the pictures/OHP will usually dissuade me. Cause I know if I had seen pics of Metronome or Codomo A beforehand, I wouldn't have given two shits. Same with certain other bands who look really really retarded so you lump them in there with, "Stereotypical trashy dark" or "too cute to be good" types of stuff.

I'm the same way.  Pictures either totally work to a band's advantage or do the exact opposite.

assuming this thread is what i think its about, i usually go by this rule:

if a band cannot dress themselves, they obviously cannot write good songs.

This is a serious thread, but I still attempted for some lulz, since I knew certain words would be changed.

Usually, I don't even look for bands pics before downloading their music.

I don't always know what the band I'm listening to looks like,
but usually you can tell a lot about a band by their fashion.

Never judge when you see pics.

Now i don't really judge bands by their looks. however, in earlier times i did and it worked against them D: case in point VK... i wouldn't listen to it because i thought they looked like freaks. Obviously i changed my mind about that ... so yea. After that i try my bestest not to judge by looks anymore even though i'm sure there are times when i still do it even subconsciously D:

^Some years ago, I wasn't really interested in vk, because, as you said, they looked like total freaks, and I found them quite ridiculous.
But I changed my mind when listening to bands like Plastic Tree, MUCC, etc... (even if they aren't vk at all)

Pictures can be quite distracting.
There are quite a few bands I really like where I'm sure I only like them because I listened to their music first without knowing what they look like. Else I might have found them to look too ridiculous to make g.o.o.d music.

I listened to Dir en grey based completely on how they looked. Best decision of my life.

Applying the same thing to other bands has generally not worked.

There are a shitload of bands I still have no idea what they look like. I've been listening to alot of them for years though. Ah , I normally dislike what most vk bands look like.

Some pop groups could pass as rock bands if you've never heard them before.

yeah vk means to have visual images and themes to supplement the music you make. not to dress like a fuckin dirty prostitute who casually listens to slipknot. being visual kei isnt an excuse to dress like a retard. we cant use that excuse for everything, its not 9/11.

Visual style. Oshare style. Doesn't matter; niggers make the same excuse when they're picking out a band.

Yes, I am inclined to choose the music that pleases me aesthetically. I doubt a band with fuck-ugly people would carry a lot of fans, no matter how musically talented they were. I mean, just look at Socrates. Ugly as fuck. And that's why he drank the hemlock; because back then in Greece, they didn't have plastic surgery. And he didn't take a shower, which is why everybody hated him. So he had a lowered self-esteem and cried every night to his wife who was a money-grubbing whore.

Hey, if your life was like that, you'd drink the hemlock too.

He was also annoying.

You know, this thread made sense when the wordfilters were in effect.

My music testing is usually kinda random, I just pick a name that sounds nice, and listen. But then, sometimes I go to their OHP, which isn't maybe the best way to.. know them, you know. :D I have left some bands alone without listening, just because I went uh-oh to their image. Actually, most of them weren't even ugleeeh or anything, they just looked so.. BORING. Well whatever, I still listen to the samples if they have any.

Not that I care that much about their looks, it's just that I won't bother. If some nice-looking band makes shizz, at least I can fap to them. ;D

Some times I do that.  Like if I'm going to try something new and I see band pictars on the site I find them at, that'll be a deciding factor whether I want it to be or not :|

When I cared about pics it was opposite I'd see the band and imagine what their music was like ie... Aliene Ma'riage, Earl grey, Neil
It was just how I imagined Awesome!!!
