I really feel sorry for you Cesaer. You've ditched what music is all about and fallen into the trap of superiority complexes. I don't need them nor will most of us care for them.

Film music isn't great or complex? It doesn't matter what you think in this situation, because you are obviously in a classical mindset. Film music is to accompany film. Half of the beauty of film music is how it represents characters, ideas, and emotions so well, and how it can characterize an entire visual production with music. Other may not agree with me but I believe that. And it seems, in your quest of belittlement and superiority, you have forgotten the beauty of simplicity =

So whatever, continue to live in your complex musical little world, feeling superior with each note that rings in your ears, I will sit here, listening to my "vulgar" and stupid music, enjoying every single note. At the end of the day, I have a feeling I will be one enjoying myself more.
