Schooled In The Blues

As the teacher droned on for the millionth time he thought to himself, "Instead of memorizing stupid dates on who did what first. I could be listening to the music these dates refer to. I don't care when Louis Armstrong was born just play me the music and I'll feel all need to know about him."




Yes the blues and jazz is where it all began folks. Music today is nada without everything blues and jazz did first, so yeah, I kinda think we need to give it better respect for all the ways it has shaped the world's style.

Music on the whole inspires my style in so many ways I can't count. And for me when I say style I do not mean fashion I me STYLE the groove in which you walk to work or through the mall, or in how you love, how you kiss and hold hands, hold bread, hold a seance, in how you plant flowers, and cut tomatoes. Fashion is clothes and makeup but style- is how you wear it and carry yourself and much like my music tastes my style cannot be stereotyped and niche marketed.

Everything about this appeals to me!

I am glad somebody else likes the blues I get the feeling blues music exists on a plane where nobody else lives and that is why you people don't listen to it because they don't even know it exists.

If only I could hype my own picture I'd hype it just to give the blues more face time!

It's sort of disappointing I think. But it's good to know someone feels so strongly for it. I suppose it's the thought of the hype that counts!

What is even more disappointing is the top hype getters for the bloody music picture contest have no musical imagery in their picture to show how much they love music and how much in influences their style.

But I didn't enter to win I entered to get the names of these icons and legends out there.
