|We have no problems. We have no important situations to discuss. We have nothing to criticize! This should be the slogan dedicated to our country’s promotion
Andressa has written a very interesting post here. It is in Ro only and it criticizes a so-called pop star and in a more general view, what’s happening on the Romanian music scene. She is, in my humble opinion, right to dismiss all fake videos with no voice backup (Live performance? I don’t do that, I can’t sing really!), no real choreography and no style what so ever. Plus, everyone is entitled to an opinion, for Christ’s sake!
Well, one reaction to her comments really surprised me. It said something like: thank God we are good and smart to criticize others…Well, this is one of our major problems: us, Romanians, do not take criticism that well. Better shut up, have no opinion on any matter and let it flow (or flor Sim?). Do not say anything, opinions are not welcomed (this suddenly reminds me of certain emails I received after daring to have a personal opinion on a Cioran book on this site…). If you put a little critical spirit in it, beware! We will not come with actual facts, we will explain you that the world is not as pink as you thought it to be and we will show you how wrong you are: no real arguments!
Oh, and people…MTV awards? Romanian style? C’mon! I am sure you can do better than that!
Well I criticize. Everything. Myself, my life, my friends, my family, my company, my home, my city, my country, Europe, the World for crying out loud! Didn’t anybody hear of constructive criticism??? Any type of criticism can help: to re-evaluate a situation, a state of being, a fact, whatever…Even if the criticism was based on nothingness, periodically re-evaluating our beliefs can only be of help!
Who knows, I might even get to love Keo one day (man, he’s in desperate need of a better alias!), maybe even Andressa will get to be a fan! But that will never happen to anyone (get to be a fan/get to have fans/followers/admirers etc), if the first thing we do is reject all criticism thrown at us!
