Hi, and welcome to my userpage, which is where you have arrived since you either clicked here or typed my name in the address bar to get here. My name is Kirby, though I go by "Kirb". I'm a recent high school graduate who lives with his girlfriend in a small, boring town where nothing ever happens. I'm a brony, though my status as one is constantly changing due to the quality of the episodes. Pretty boring, eh?

Hi, Dana again! My last post here sparked some discussion, so I decided to make another one. This time I will be talking about music.

Ever notice that most of today’s pop singers are girls? We don’t really get many long lasting male singers who mean anything anymore. Most of the time it’s people like Cher Lloyd, Demi Lovato, Charli XCX, Ariana Grande, people like that. The male pop singers aren’t too frequent, and when they do come around they’re all wimpy little pricks. Look at people like Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Jason Derulo, Sam Smith, Nick Jonas… no matter how they try to be manly, all of them come off as big phonies trying to sound all tough.

Now let’s go back to my favorite singer of all time, Freddie Mercury. Rest his soul, he was a great singer that didn’t sound too forced or too wimpy, was always in key, and had great stage presence. And he was gay. He had many different male lovers, and was flamboyant, going around on stage wearing fingernail paint, bright yellow jackets, sparkling leotards, shorty shorts, and despite all that still managed to be a thousand times manlier than all of today’s male pop stars.

That’s another problem with the Queen tribute acts that followed them, like Queen + Adam Lambert. Adam just doesn’t have the stage presence of Freddie. The closest we got was Queen + Paul Rodgers, but he just wasn’t as good a singer. And of course we have all those lookalikes for Freddie, but those still feel kind of off.

It also ticks me off when a lot of modern music acts try to emulate Queen’s style, the lead singer just doesn’t have that stage presence. Kirb and I love Muse, but Matt Bellamy is no Freddie Mercury. He can’t pull off strutting around on stage without an instrument and holding a microphone; last time he tried, it went about as well as when Rivers Cuomo did the same thing. Same goes with fun.’s lead singer Nate Ruess, he doesn’t have the cock-rock bombast of Freddie. The closest band we got was a glam rock group called The Struts, and actually I really like their music and their lead singer, who has the voice of Freddie Mercury, the fashion sense of Joan Jett, and the dance moves of Mick Jagger. I say check those guys out.

But no, we don’t get a lot of Freddie Mercury’s anymore. Nor any Robert Plant’s, or Roger Daltrey’s, Jim Morrison’s, Michael Hutchence’s, and even among the female singers we don’t get any Pat Benatar’s, Ann Wilson’s, Stevie Nicks’, or even any Cyndi Lauper’s. The state of music we’re in is so bad that a Soulja Boy soundalike is now at #3 in the US, and I thought we all agreed that we didn’t need another Soulja Boy. Thank god Canada has better programming, that’s for sure.

Anyway, what are your thoughts? Discuss!
