very, very true.
hence the reason writers today are held in a much lower regard than ever before. how often lately have you heard people buzzing about the book singing
now there are times when direct, short and sweet (or not so sweet) language are called for. getting too eloquent and using elevated diction in
certain situations makes one seem stpid, actually, because alot of people use "filler words" which really dont mean anything. someone will use 5
synonyms for the same word (making sure that none are less than 3 syllables long) in one sentence, and tink it makes them look smarter. when in all
actuallity it just makes them look like they are trying too hard.
but come on people, beer me??? one of the most beautiful aspects of society is slowly slipping away. language. DICTION is everything, picking the
RIGHT word once instead of 20 words that mean the same thing.
so next time its open mike night, theres entries goin on, or theres a chance to stand up and scream out to people in a toungue that has a little more
shazaam than "beer me" ....DO IT!!!!!
especially open mike night, if you know ANYONE who does spoken word(cough cough...me...cough cough:lol, support em. they are some of our last hopes!
