You know Mitch, just because I know I suck at sports doesn't make me good at sports.

nah man, dont agree. people need to listen to such stuff so that they think twice before calling some of the other music out there bad.

Actually, if you consider the aim of sports to entertain, and you know you are bad and enter a sporting event anyway, that makes you pretty good at sports.

The aim of sports definitely isn't to entertain. The term "good at sports" has been used in the same way forever, there's no way it refers to how entertaining you are.

I think the aim of sports IS to entertain us. 'Being good at sports' differs from being 'entertaining at sports' though.

I see your point, but I don't really care. If somebody likes them, he/she is allowed to do so.

Well then for boo boo's analogy to work, the aim of music has to be to win, if not, it's irrelevant.

Except watching people who are bad at a sporting event is not entertaining (regardless of whether they know it or not) other than in a "haha what a dumbass" sort of way that is not fixed by someone doing it deliberately. In fact someone being deliberately bad is annoying.

Sport has multiple aims. Are you suggesting that music's aim is to entertain?

I love the game where we try to reduce a complex and multifarious human activity involving innumerable people with wildly divergent aims to a single aim and then try to judge the people engaging in that activity by the light of that one aim and don't care that all such attempts inevitably lead us to tremendously stupid and patently contrary to fact evaluations.

I might say that the object of music can vary. There is music that is obviously geared to be appealing to the masses and other artists who use music more as a form of self expression.

That's one of those discussions where nobody leaves understanding more than they started with.

People wouldn't bother with music if it wasn't entertaining. Meh.
