Actually, I have little confidence that the arts in education (music) will inspire significantly increased appreciation of "true artistry" among the youth (tweens to 30s), in general that is. The artists like Jackie are up against too much programming and hopefully will be satisfied to continue their art for the sake of its integrity for those who have not been conditioned, whether they are older folks or the young, and who are independent enough not to be seduced by the "noise" that is promoted as "music". They just won't be as popular and "successful", but that has never been the criteria for determining great art. Great artistry in music is all about integrity, despite differing tastes. Some types of music I don't particularly like to listen to but I do appreciate its value as art.

Back when I was a worker, and was often subjected to others' choice of radio station, I noticed that "Wah-oh wah-oh" that occurred with astonishing frequency.
Jackie's four songs do contrast with mainstream pop, in having considerable dynamic variation and complexity. As does plenty of other music being made by people the mass market will never notice. You can find it on niche radio stations, usually "noncommercial" ones, but without the filtering of the mass market that used to exist, you get a very mixed bag of stuff, depending on the eccentricities of the DJs. There's not enough listeners to make the good stuff rise to the top.

There are a lot of reasons...
only few know what they are doing today..it isn't necessary anymore that someone learned his craft..many copy things that sell, try and error
as the album/cd are kind of dead or dying most things are trash stuff ..no one has the money anymore to book a recording studio with real musicians for days, no time to experiment...even David Foster...JE sings her pre produced part in NY..the other singer in Mailand..Tony Bennet is one of the very few who records his albums the old way
because of the 30sec rule in streaming - artist/label only gets paid if one streams longer than 30 sec ..so everything gets packed in the first 30 sec ..a song like Brothers in Arms (Dire Straits) with a long intro - today - never
most songs today haven't any great catchy melodies anymore...the last Taylor Swift album...in that aspect totally trash
Yesterday Ariana Grande released her new song...after 1 hour #1 on itunes..Why??? 4
rickolsen: I'm munching corn chips and watching football. I like corn chips better than potato chips. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. Brandie is preening herself on the love seat. She will be sleeping soon. I have a good life. I love my cats.

rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping, so all 3 of my cats are sleeping now. I gave them gravy dinner about an hour ago. I'm watching a good football game. Peyton Manning is creaming Arizona. I'm going to eat a couple of cucumbers now. They are so good.

rickolsen: I got some Greek pasta salad, cole slaw, and deviled egg potato salad today. The Greek pasta salad has lots of feta cheese. I love feta cheese. I gave my cats some gravy dinner a while ago. They will be sleeping soon. I'm eating Greek pasta salad.
Feb 1, 2020 13:33:56 GMT -5
rickolsen: My cole slaw is gone. I've got half the Greek pasta salad and potato salad left. I'm not supposed to eat pasta or potatoes, but my doctor said I can eat them in moderation. When you are diabetic you can't eat anything good or cheap. I eat what I want.

rickolsen: My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat here in the livingroom with me. I'm watching football and munching corn chips. If you like corn chips get Great Value corn chips at Walmart. They are really good.

rickolsen: It is 10:00 am. My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the love seat. I didn't give them gravy dinner because they didn't ask for it. When they do I will give it to them. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Prime filet chicken. They like that kind. They are gobbling it down. They will be sleeping soon. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: My brother died yesterday. We weren't close. Now I'm the only son of 4 left. All 3 of my cats are on my desk. They came to see me.
Feb 10, 2020 16:54:26 GMT -5
Willyiam: May your Brother RIP!!
Feb 14, 2020 8:31:08 GMT -5
rickolsen: Thanks. I haven't seen, or spoken to my brother since my biological mother's funeral in 2009. I was adopted and didn't meet my biological family until 20 years ago when I was 44. We were never close. I see my biological father once in awhile.

rickolsen: One of my sisters found me. I didn't go looking for them. My cats are all sleeping. I'm watching football, and I'm hungry, so I'm making a big pot of stew. Of course it has mushrooms and lots of garlic.
Feb 18, 2020 18:37:03 GMT -5
rickolsen: My stew is so good I wish I could share it with you. I'm glad Agog suggested I cook my own food. I'm a good cook, it's cheaper, tastes better, and it's better for you. I love to cook so it works out perfectly.
Feb 18, 2020 18:55:35 GMT -5
rickolsen: I would cook for my cats, but they need cat food from the store. It has all the minerals and nutrients they need including taurin for good health. You should resist the temptation to feed your cat or dog people food. Give them the pet food they need.

rickolsen: All 3 of my cats are in the livingroom with me. Brandie is on the loveseat. Phoenix is on the arm of the arm chair and Sampson is on the couch. Today is trash day. I have to run a few errands and then I'm going to put out my trash.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Chicken, turkey, casserole. They like it. They will be sleeping soon.

nipper: So Jackie's part in Disney dream weddings will air this coming Friday I believe on Disney + channel. Does anyone have that channel? I believe it is an streaming channel!
Feb 23, 2020 8:45:31 GMT -5
nipper: Does anyone have a hunch on what the exciting collaboration Jackie talked about last month that will happen this year?
Feb 23, 2020 8:46:56 GMT -5
johnnyb: Sorry Nipper, Jackie fans have left the building, head over to Jackie Amazon if you want to have a conversation or find some news on Jackie's career. Unfortunately Rick has lost interest in Jackie and now only wants to talk about his cats. 😺
Feb 23, 2020 14:27:13 GMT -5
nipper: I see that. As an Ice breaker should I talk about my cat who died in October?
