I know this may be a bit old but I thought it was funny regardless ;).

I really love the face she makes in that split second she realises her mistake. It's like this moment of sheer, abject terror.

Do any of you ever make any judgements about people based on their musical preferences? Not necessarily just simple positive or negative judgements - do you draw any broader inferences about their personalities or values from scrolling through someone's playlist?

 

LOL yeah, both me and music_4321 are back. :) It's time for james444 to re-enter our tribe.

 

I think that as life goes on, I meet new people and get a bit of knowledge about their music tastes. The more people I meet, the more I seem to see a pattern in the relationship between their behaviour and the music they listen to (or so I think). Anyway, it's not rare that people behaving more like thugs, or very gangster-like listen either to rap or dance music. People that behave nice often listen to some harder kind of rock of. Not nightwish kind of rock, but more like sepultura or norwegian death metal. It's a bit weird, but I think that their behaviour may be to create some sort of balance between the sinister musical environment and their nice behaviour. Uptight people often like either radio pop or the nightwish kind of melodic rock - not rarely do they listen to 80's melodic rock if they're old enough to have been brought up early enough. So on and so forth. From these experiences I have seen patterns, and while I know that there's no causal relationship between the two, I still think that more often than not, it does kind of fit in to my experience.

 

Now, I don't judge people from that, nor do I put labels on people because of their music. I just think it's interesting to see who fit into my patterns, and when they do, their personalities and other sides of them fit as well. It's not science, but it's a fun observation. According to my observations I should be pretty boring and introverted, but I don't think I am, so I am myself the first evidence that this is no exact science. Also, I think that these observations may be "local" so to say. I don't think my patterns are universal, but merely seem to show in Sweden. If so, I can also understand why.

 

I hope that answered your question implicitly.

lee730, I just clicked on what was suppose to be the last post I read for the night - early morning meeting. That clip :thumb: left me wide awake!

;) I was watching the newscaster bluppers. Looks like a lot of newscasters make these slip-ups. The one with Jlo was also a laugh lol.

LOL, the sorting was easy.

 

 

$(document).ready(function () {
    jsonTable(getJsonArray(jsonOH).sort(jsonSort));
 
});

 

 

function jsonSort(a, b) {
    return (a.tidpunkt > b.tidpunkt) ? -1 : 1;
    
}

 

Also, Ardgedee (and a_recording depending on your JS-skills), is it generally a wise thing to create an array out of a json array? I'm thinking like this:

 

 

function getJsonArray(jsonFile) {
    var jsonList = new Array();
    $.ajax({
        type: "GET",
        url: jsonFile,
        async: false,
        beforeSend: function (x) {
            if (x && x.overrideMimeType) {
                x.overrideMimeType("application/j-son;charset=UTF-8");
            }
        },
        dataType: "json",
        success: function (order) {
            
            for (var i = 0; i < order.length; i++) {
                jsonList.push(order[i]);
            };
            
        },
        error: function () {
            alert('Error');
        }
    });
    return jsonList;
}

 

In a way it feels a little redundant to do that, but in my head the whole idea becomes a bit easier for me to grasp. I'm used to strongly typed languages where explicit casting has to occur. Javascript isn't strongly typed at all, and the casting and such does create a bit of a confusion.

 

Anyway, the data gotten from the json-file should be turned into an array already by the jQuery ajax command, right? So pushing it into a new array seems redundant, right?

It did.

 

The real brain-twist is though - is this at all a function of how the music sounds, or is it some result of some dynamic and self-reinforcing relationship between the audiences expectations of a genre, and the musician's response to that expectation?

 

Or to pose another metaphor: It's a 'natural fact' that pink is a girls colour. Mattel makes pink toys for girls. Heterosexual males generally try to avoid pink because its emasculating.

 

Is there anything in the sound of dance music (not the lyrical content) that makes it inherently suited to the ears of thugs? Why does the sound of metal seem any more sinister than the sound of smooth jazz? Beats, tempo - sound - seem seem like a colour palette to me, and it hurts my brain even trying to think of ways of thinking about them in isolation of any cultural assumptions.

 

This reminds me of Radiolab's discussion about the physiological basis of the supposed riots that broke out when Stravinsky's 'Rite of Spring' was first performed. http://www.radiolab.org/2007/sep/24/

Yeah. 'sgood in my openyon.

 

Search the last diary thread, and you should find some impressions for it.

Yeah. The worldview I've honed from playing videogames most of my life always equates singular objects in the middle of rooms as triggers for spawning traps. As soon as someone picks up that flashlight, a buncha imps and cacodaemons are going to appear.
