Useful Idiots

Do you think some people use music to distract them from real life?
of course . music is an escape !
Absolutely. Almost every night.
I think some people use real life to distract them from music.
Music is real life
Only the ones that DON'T have a virtual life, in front of a keyboard.
And ones that use silly spellings for teck for tech.:)
Yes, cause this site is all about spelling. By the anal nature of some members here a new member might get confused.
Iv got a son in law that has to be on another planet when he cranks his toonz. The man turns the volumn of the headphones up to eleven and goes somewhere that no one has heard of. Funny thing is when he opens his mouth to yaughn (or however you spell that word) the highs are not so rolled and the micro dynamics are quite a bit better.
Isn't that the motive behind any hobby, as long as it is an escape on a temporary basis. There are some that never seem to emerge and loose touch with reality. Maybe Discovery could do a series on Audio Shut-Ins. Sorry I have more but must get back to my little corner and listen to the voices........
I'd submit that there are way too many folks out there that couldn't find real life with a telescope. When Snooki has more clout in the world than you and everyone you know combined, the definition of real life gets pretty fuzzy!
For centuries people have escaped reality and the grind of daily life through the use of temporary diversions.

Alcohol, drugs, television, music, movies, exercise, etc. are among the more popular today IMO.

Some even mix and match with great success.

Music is the closest thing we have to virtual reality and the playback equipment the closest we have to time machines. Home theatre is a close second.
It's good to escape reality occasionally. How you do it is up to you.
