I am terrible. In the last post, I promised something about winterizing a wheelchair (or something like that). I have not even looked into the research for that. I have been distracted by Caddicarus posting his complete collections of seasons. I am a nerd. I am well aware of that.
I have thought about looking at Media’s portrayal of being in a wheelchair. I really like the idea, but I just thought of it today and I am planning to put a good bit of research into it. So, for today, I am going to talk about the importance of finding good ignorable music.
Good Ignorable Music? If something is ignorable, does it really matter the quality? If it is good, wont you be distracted by the amazing radiating from the speakers?
Ignorable music, to me, is comfort music. It is something you can have on in the background. Something to do chores to. Something to enjoy, without the urge to listen to every beat or lyric.
My go-to is Chevelle’s Sci-Fi Crimes. I think it was horribly underrated and I feel it is not talked about enough. With all the praise I can give this album, it is the definition of ignorable to me. Nothing is overtly complicated, I have listen to it a million times, and the lyrics are pointless in a good way.
I discovered this while doing dishes the other day and the sounds of this album were penetrating the drone of the running water. I never once looked up and regretting not hearing part X of the song that was playing. Quite the opposite, really: I knew every bit even if I could just hear certain frequencies individually and not as a whole.
Nothing bothers me more than walking in somewhere playing shit music and the people just remark “I put on something to ignore.” IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE HORRIBLE! You can ignore favourites simply because you already know what is coming.
