i just can't watch the party scenes without feeling a bit sorry for her because she's just wandering around by her lonesome at some really lame fourteen year old party, and she doesn't really seem to be enjoying herself. and then she recounts the days of the week in the most pathetic way possible--"sunday comes afterwards"? that is the most awkward phrasing. it denotes the cyclical nature of life. i think she just hates the conformity of the notion that weekends equal partying she's like "i don't want this weekend to end" but honestly i think she wants it to end, forever, she can't deal with this anymore

so it is a company that takes money from rich parents who have kids that want to be famous singers?  Cause the talent there is, um, lacking.  Also "ARK Music Factory"  is not a name that inspires confidence.

Most of the time it's a negative thing when a company takes advantage of people's delusions, but this just seems like a clever way to siphon money out of people who deserve to be taken advantage of. Two concerns though: I really hope the people behind this company aren't a bunch of sleazeballs, and I really hope nobody is blowing their college funds or retirement accounts on this.

It all depends on whether and if  the 'Talent' has a future in the real world.

Some might make it with a little improvement.  Some will, thankfully. sink into obscurity.

But seriously, thats quite a lot of kids who wear a lot of sequins and feel that people like Justin Bieber are legitimate artists. Fair enough, they're young and impressionable, but damn the parents for supporting this. Use your money to get them into music related classes.

My sister and I, as well as my mother and I, have gotten into serious arguments about whether Justin Bieber is a legitimate artist.  The guy is the essence of how music is manufactured and their argument is that because he's famous and on the tv that he's a legitimate artist. 

Honestly, this girl could be on the TV.  When I first saw this video the first thing that went through my mind was "oh, this is the new starlet? She looks a little boring but her music sounds exactly the same as everyone else."

Her music, sure, but the lyrics are so horrendously inane that I cannot believe that not a single one of those kids (who I assume are her friends who also paid to be in the video or at least were part of the deal and not getting paid for it) didn't say "Hey dude your song kind of sucks, get a new one".

She didn't write the song, by all accounts it was written for her by ARK Music Factory in return for a large sum of money from her parents.

Quote from: youtube comment
She poses an interesting moral quandary: whether to kick it in the front seat or, conversely, kick in the back seat.

The front seat symbolising a loss of innocence, being in more direct control of the car (and her life). However she decides to revel in youth rather than take the lonely path of premature aging just to prove a point to her fleeting friends.

The ambiguity of "Friday" is her wrestling with the days following it in the week as if they were all the same. Existential. Poetry.

As part of the Hollywood field trip sponsored by my college's film/tv department, we saw a taping of America's Got Talent. One act was a 14-year-old Justin Bieber wannabe (his first name was even Justin), and another was a 13-year-old wannabe Taylor Swift. Another act was a teen rock band that I swear looked like Loverboy from the 80s.

They were decent, and possibly had potential, but there were ominous hints that they were following their parents' dreams more than their own. Even if the passion is their own, I don't think what they were exposed to is helpful. At the end of the day, all of the music acts, adult or teen, at the taping were at BEST, equivalent to the b-list in any decent local scene. I have far more respect for anybody working their way up with their own material at the local open-mics than any packaged artist.

As for ARK, I think I heard that same rapper on several of the tracks. I'll have to see if I can remember the e-mail I used for my crabcorefan youtube account to sign in and find out what the deal is on that site. I used to be part of earlier efforts to track down and expose scam literary agents and publishers who'd take starry-eyed writers for tens of thousands of dollars.

Going in through a googled interior page let me get to the "About" page without signing up, so here it is.

Quote

Ark Music Factory's Independent Record Label is based in the heart of the entertainment capital of the world, Hollywood, California. Our producers and team of collaborating writers have worked with artists like Cindy Santini (US - Fontana/Universal), Miley Cyrus, Backstreet Boys, Ashley Tisdale, Ibrahim Maiga (Slovakia), Psquare (Africa - 2009 MTV Best Group), Samantha Lombardi (Australia - FourScreen USA), LadyBird (Latvia - Best Pop Artist 'Top of the Pops') etc., and have also produced music for US Emmy winning and four time Emmy nominated Nickelodeon Television (Growing Up Creepie).

About to actually sign up for an account, brb with details of that.

EDIT: OK, "we" are Kyle Jennings of Bakersfield, CA, 93311, birthdate July 17th, 1995. Anybody who wants the log-in to explore on their own, just mention it in thread or PM me and I'll PM the info to you. What I need from somebody is a likely profile picture that fits the metalcore trend. My idea is to play it pretty straight for now to find out what this is really all about and potentially find out what all this costs. Beyond that, the potential for fun is unlimited. (Awaiting account approval for full access (now approved))

EDIT2: finding my crabcorefan e-mail password prompted me to check my youtube page with my stupid Attack Attack! - I Kissed A Girl parody, and for some reason, the number of hits per day has accelerated in the past 4 months from an average of 100/day where it's basically been for the last year and a half, to over 2000 hits per day in the last week, and now has over 220,000 total views.  :psyduck:

EDIT3:
I suspect that the rapper guy is also the producer.  It'd be great if it was just one dude, and he wrote the lyrics to the songs using some sort of automated shitty lyrics generator.

Yup, this was in the photo section under "producers". No names yet that I've seen.
