30 Days Of Bieber: The Effects On A 37 Year Old Man.
I am a 37 year old, Canadian guy who enjoys music like Radiohead, Three Days Grace, Pink Floyd, Steve Miller Band, etc. I have never heard a Justin Bieber song in my life. Well, I once heard 15 seconds of a song, but that’s about it. I’ve never even heard a parody. I just know that I am light years away from his demographic and would not enjoy his music if I were to sit down and actually listen to it. But what if I were to listen to it a lot? Like, 30 days of Bieber playing non stop?
I have decided to risk my sanity in the hopes of answering the question, “would a man far outside of the intended demographic learn to enjoy Justin Bieber’s music after hearing it continuously for 30 days”. Here are the rules…
~I will purchase all of Bieber’s music (yes, purchase) and listen to it from the moment I wake up, to the moment I go to sleep from April 1st, to April 30th (I’ll have to stop during showers).
~To spare my family, I will listen to it on headphones.
~I will play his four albums in order, repeatedly (My World, My World 2.0, My Worlds Acoustic, Never Say Never-The Remixes). I cannot skip any songs or listen to them on random.
~I will post a short video blog once per day during “The Month Of Bieber” and describe my reactions and feelings. I’ll link to these videos from my twitter account.
~I will remain sober for all of April.
~I will keep an open mind and remain honest about my findings. If I actually start to enjoy his music, I will say so. If I start to go mad, I will probably start wearing a dead squirrel on my head and declare myself the king of Jello Island.
~I will not sample any of his music until April.
No, this is not an April fools joke.
As always, thanks for reading.
