Why the irritating music?

Recommended Posts

I love watch Full Custom.  But the background music is so irritating!!  Why the music?  I get it, he isn't talking every minute but I would rather hear nothing than that music.

Customization is the work of an individualist. All the individualists listen to that dated rock music. It identifies them.

Don A485,  during production meetings for  any television program,  the producer , director , and their team will work out details about the  logistics of the show. The music is part of the details.

When I'm tinkering in the garage I like to listen to some of Yoko Ono's primal scream therapy tapes.

Doesn't that make the individualists conformists?  ;)

So I'm not the only one. ALL the shows have that stupid guitar sound. No way you can call it music. Just noise.

I can't stand to watch a whole lot of the shows. They all have it. Just irritating.

Yeah, and they only use "music" they like and don't give a rip about their audience...

 

I like the show too, because it is one guy doing most of the work and his methods are inventive and practical.

Many years ago, when my brother was in college, he was at a party and commented something like "if we're all 'doing our own thing' how come everyone is dressed alike"? That pretty much got him ostracized.

Around 1959 or 1960, I am pretty sure in Road & Track, there was a short piece about a guy who had a popular sports car that made him different. Others bought similar cars. Then they got haircuts, jackets, and a bunch more things to identify them a s group. They were all quite proud of their individualism. I was about 12 at the time and appreciated it. Over the past 60 years the concept has always been close to the surface of my thoughts, kept there by those around me as well as some quite distant. I'd like to find a copy and read it again.

 

Producers on not very original. Notice how that old has been rock is always the same? It comes from the car show background library. They have a bunch of them

:

 

The thing I get the biggest kick out of is the "climax" of a presentation, particularly noir genre. The scene will be intense and the actor heads for stairs, a ladder, up a building.  I tell my wife "He's climbing. It's the end". She hates me saying that. I told her that in early movie days the producers and directors were mostly of Eastern European heritage. They were told, in English, that a story had a climax. They mistook that as "Climb, Max". And they wrote in the climbing scene at the end of movies. Now it is part of the formula. Don't believe me? Watch the bad guy climb somewhere at the end of a movie.

They are what we call rut runners, always did it that way and never change.

Same drum roll for every prat fall too. And every construction worker has a Brooklyn accent.

Movies and TV are just as predictable as a country music song..... I'm in a bar, my wife left me, the dog died, my house burned down.

 

Why not the irritating music for car shows. They just copy. Now, when it comes to being really irritating they can't hold a candle to me.

At least they didn't mistake it for "orgasm"  ;)

"Well, a friend of mine named Steve Goodman wrote that song
And he told me it was the perfect country & western song
I wrote him back a letter and I told him it was not the perfect country & western song
Because he hadn't said anything at all about mama
Or trains, or trucks, or prison, or getting' drunk

Well, he sat down and wrote another verse to the song and he sent it to me
And after reading it I realized that my friend had written the perfect country & western song
And I felt obliged to include it on this album
The last verse goes like this here
Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got run over by a damned old train"

Essence captured.

 

I think you know the part of Mew York I live in, between Rochester and Buffalo.

 

I have the fixings for a song in my memories.

Looking in the rear view mirror of that Ford at a man surrounded by dust in The Hitching Post Bar parking lot, a cast on his leg waving the crutch he broke my windshield with the FIRST time I buzzed him. Them Fords will sneak up on a person like a train. I think Dave Donnelly was singing that night.

 

Picture is on the Ess's at Watkins Glen, bending the rules to be there, too.

 

I'll be thinking about that story sitting across from my wife at supper in a few minutes. And what she don't know won't hurt her.

What is Full Custom?  I probably agree with you about the music.  Last month, I went to see the musical The Book of Mormon.  I was told it was good and very funny.  I paid $82 for the ticket.  They amplify the music to ear splitting levels and I was stuck in my seat in the middle of a long row at the opera house.  I didn't have any Kleenex on me so I couldn't stuff my ears.  I ripped up my ticket and tried to stuff that in my ears, but it didn't work.  My brother tells me that rock concerts are much louder than this.  I guess that's why I've never been to a rock concert!  I wasn't able to escape until intermission.  Watching this thing was pure torture.  i had to plug my ears with my fingers the whole act.  But every other person in my group was actually enjoying this disgusting thing.  No accounting for taste, I guess.  I'm used to going to the opera where the music is not amplified.

Interesting thread.

I like watching the show. I think Ian Roussel is very talented and creative.

I can't say that I ever noticed the music.

 

I must be one of those individualistic conformists. :-)

Yes brother, the Flower Duet from Lakme' by Delibes. The finest 7 minutes to ever grace a stage.

If one listens and isn't moved by this piece, someone had better check them for a pulse.

Interesting moment: I was at this opera years ago and as this piece finished a little girl, sitting with her parents a few rows back was heard quite clearly when she said "This must be the music people hear when they go to Heaven."

I can't say which of the two moved me more.
