Default Re: Pretentious music??

Bob, I'm sure everyone will be fooled into thinking you're a high society guy :)

Larry and PQleyR, you guys are total geniuseseses! ... "As soon as I wrote it, I was forever smitten" ... "Like a ladderrrrrr (FX: space echo)" - potent stuff!

One thing I notice is that if a lyricist is keen on poetry and using typical olde worlde poetic devices they get hit with the P-word. It seems that not being straightforward and earthy is assumed to be pretentious.

A bit of cross referencing ... this conversation reminded me of an old toon I made about the kinds of artist attitude that is never referred to as pretentious ... it's in the Drumming Cartoons thread.
