To Be or Not To Be

Hey everyone!  I've heard some more great music this week and I can't wait to tell you about Legion Within!  I met the bass player, Raven in this funky occult bookshop and picked up their album!  It's pretty fucking awesome stuff.  But first I have to share something else I learned in Seattle....

I met someone there who's music I enjoy very much.  I knew he had read my blogs in the past so I asked his opinion.  I love getting feedback on the blogs....it's my own art and I guess I like to know who I appeal to, how I can make improvements, etc.   Anyway, in talking about Cat's Litter Box, he felt it was redundant.  Hmmmmm, that's unusual feedback.... in what way is the Litter Box redundant?  He said it was too positive... if I only had good things to say why would anyone want or trust my opinion.

Well, I don't know if you can imagine, but that got my back up a little bit.... okay scratch that, it fucking got my back up a lot.  This forum is for me to share the music I enjoy and in doing so, to support the artists I enjoy.  I feel there is enough fucking negativity in this world and I don't want to be a part of adding to it.  Sure, there is music in this world (not a lot) that I would rather not listen to.  You won't hear about that music or the artists from me.

I love music.  It been with me through my happiest moments and my worst ones.  When I felt I was all alone, I would hear a song that spoke to the very feelings I was having and I knew someone out there understood me.  Whether I like something or not, there is someone out there that appreciates and relates to it.  So I sure as hell am not going to bash it.

So, I just want to express one thing.  To those of you who don't like this blog because it's too positive...here's some negativity for you.... Fuck off and go read something else.  I'll be back soon to talk about Legion Within and it will be positive because I like the way they fucking play.......... ; )

  1. Just one more thing.... the feedback did not come from Raven or anyone involved with Legion Within. Just so you know.... ;)

  2. Hello Cat,
    I agree with you completely about being positive about things. Everywhere you go people and things are negative. Who needs all of that? Just getting up everyday and going through all you have to just to get a paycheck is a real pain.

    Narcissistic bosses who's butts you have to kiss, who would fire you in a minute if you don't perform. Then, they break all the rules to get what they want. Crazy "ME FIRST" drivers who insist on cutting you off to get ahead of you in traffic. The negative news reports, corrupt police who get away with murder.

    The list goes on and on. So, I say if someone wants to live with all that negativity, let 'em have it , and take it elsewhere. There's something wrong with people who thrive on negative feedback. Keep up posting positive writing. It's your blog, so do what you want to. It's "CAT'S blog. :-)
