    I mean, pop music is scientifically engineered to be catchy...there are specific numbers of syllables that each verse requires, a specific number of beats in each hook, and a specific number of repetitions (usually 3) to really hook the chorus into the listener's brain and make that song stick. There are actual scientists working on this stuff to make pop music as addicting as possible!

    There is also an evolutionary component to this. They have studied how men and women respond external stimulation. Going back to infancy they have found that girls/women respond more to auditory stimulation and boys/men respond more to visual stimulation. A theory is that when we were living in a hunter/gatherer society our gender roles were defined as men hunted/gathered and women took care of the offspring. If a man couldn't kill or find food they would starve to death and not pass on their genes if a woman couldn't hear their offspring and ward off predators from their offspring then their genes wouldn't get passed on.

    Fast forward to our industrial society and capitalism. In terms of entertainment teenage girls spend a disproportionate amount of money on music and teenage boys spend a disproportionate amount of money on video games.

    I can appreciate this opinion. Better than the fans that get majorly butthurt every time their newest album sounds different than the last. Its almost like some bands try to mix it up. Their 4th album is coming up, and i've had legit arguments with people who are still mad that the sound isnt the same as the first album.

    I way prefer the same band members changing things up album to album over a band that changes members more often than they change playing and song styles.. Same people trying different things and growing as a band is way better than different people playing the same old stuff ad nauseum..

    Pretty much looks that way. Speaking of moderators, this site is getting a lot of SPAM in the General Filmer's Chat section. The SPAM is regarding cheap jerseys.
    All you need to do is go to the "Activity Stream" and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    Hope everybody is having a great holiday weekend.

    Found a second type of beer i like, besides blue moon, Shiner. Took long enough. Most beers ive tried are either bad or just barely drinkable.

    Beer is definitely an acquired taste. I didn't like standard beer until one very hot day when that was all that was available, no water, no pop. After drinking an ice cold beer when I was desperately hot and thirsty I suddenly liked it. Same thing with club soda. Used to HATE it until I was working one summer in an hot warehouse and that was one of the few things available free to me there. Now I prefer that over regular water given the choice. If you prefer sweet to bitter try Molson Golden or Canadian.

    Fun movie trivia fact. "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part II" with Dennis Hopper was partially funded by Shiner Bock. If you pay attention in a lot of the scenes there is something with a Shiner Bock logo in the background.
