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.


It is a fun game.

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.


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


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

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.


Well of course it can (as can sports). The point being the analogy works just fine.

Plenty of people still would. What do you mean by entertaining?

Wow, for a statement that I intended to provoke discussion, it sure did its job.

I'm surprised how riled up you guys get over something so flippant.

And corrections, you're incorrect, people who are bad at sports are frequently entertaining.


If they don't play for a team you support. In any case you missed my point. Some people who are bad at sports are entertaining in so bad its good ways (some are just pathetic). But their entertainment value bears no relation to their awareness of their lack of talent. The most entertaining bad athletes actually tend to be the ones who are blissfully unaware that they suck.

Is that the sole purpose for which music exists? Is that always the goal? What do you mean by fun?

I'm being serious. I think you have to answer all of those questions.
