hmmm I find it really easy to be interested in a band if they have an asian in the group. I don’t know why though, but it just sparks something in my head. It’s like when you hear a band on a radio you expect them to be what is it expected from the music you hear (like is it possible for someone to sound a certain race or culture etc). In a way I think it could be said to signify how the world is getting so much smaller, and how people are changing because of it. I remember fifty years ago (lol =.=) when none of this would be happening.
I was only interested in:
-Daphne Loves Derby because the lead singer is Korean-American.
-VHS or Beta because the lead singer appears to be asian xD.
and my interest in:
-CSS increased when I found out Lovefoxx has Japanese ancestry
-Little Red for similar reasons
-Young & Restless for similar reasons x]
-Bloc Party … well not really because I already thought they were awesome xD
& others but I don’t feel like racking my brain because I’m studying for psychology finals (lulz xD )
I listen to their songs and if I think about how there’s an asian in their group and it makes me smile (lol wtfx?)
I feel I’ve always had somewhat of an affinity with certain aspects of a lot of asian cultures.
I guess it has something to do with cultural acceptance (or variation, depending on how you depict things)
+ I’m also considering getting a blogspot simply because I want to play music in the background (so I can reminisce about the good ole days with mypsace xD haha)
