    My snide comment: A pop course trying to enlighten a pop blinded student body on the intricacies of being popular and the consequences of popularity in this modern day western pop culture. It brings to mind blind men and an elephant and foxes guarding hen houses. More to the point and probably much more impactful would be to watch Nosedive, an episode of Netfix's fantastic Black Mirror series. It would probably be much more informative as well as entertaining. Reflect.

    My snarky comment: By any name, a pussy is a cat, fluff and pink as ever.

  5. Making connections between the psychological researches in its different fields and "the social or economical issues" and vice versa may seem principled and a bit effortless but how that psychology affects the popularity of particular forms of art among the masses in different times is so ambiguous for the people that don't have access to the authentic information like the ones eg. YouTube gathers.

    Maybe we should ask YouTube to publicly publish its "likes or dislikes" as usually sells them to the government, entertainment industries, etc. for better decisions.:invision:


    Is it possible to make a sellable popular art just by chance without seeing the behind of the scenes? :grooves:

    No disrespec', the thread title merely reminds me of Popularity Contest by Dessy DiLauro.

    That is all I have (because, as Foster knows, I am the most deeply shallow person you will ever meet).
    Cheers!

  9. The most boring page I've ever seen but how do this garbage and many more become or became popular in the US?

    I think the Americans understand music more differently than the Europe.:dunno:

    Exactly. We take a Casio Vl-1 and make three bald guys sing da-da-da here. While Americans make the whole science of it and still come up with da-da-da, just in a different way and with addition of some twerking arses and bouncing titties. That's why even US porn is just plain boring.

    I can see how there would be a "psychology of popularity," in two regards: 1) bias toward someone deemed "popular" and against someone "unpopular," despite equivalent attributes of both or superior character or capabilities of the latter; 2) the imprinting of the effects of one's popluarity or unpopularity upon one's psyche, and how that forms one's expectations of the world, other people, and how one will fare in life – but also how those effects are "read" by others, who esteem one accordingly. In the first case, a total asshole with no redeeming qualities can be treated like royalty, whereas a morally-adjusted person who has a lot going for him/herself can be viewed as inevitably a loser or creep. in the second case, how one had been treated by one's parents and/or the other kids at school might leave an invisible, yet subconsciously-detectable, mark on a person, which others recognize and suggest to open or close doors of opportunity for that person.

    Absolutely and subsequently, Thank you, now we don't need to take the course. I am sure you distilled the entire drawn out business in 100 or so words, without fluff.

  15. This course scientifically talks about the different aspects of "the effects of popularity or unpopularity in young ages on the personal and social life of all people in the society in all ages".

    But not about "how do some people become popular?" or "how is the popularity defined?" or "who makes something popular?" or "is popular stuff good at all?" and so on.

    Music business without considering the latter questions due to its business nature won't be successful too much. Indie artists probably would have different views on this subject but business is business.:dunno:

    In these day and age they should clearly separate social media popularity and real popularity.

    On that page there is no price under Pricing. Why is there no price under Pricing? Pricing does not mean what you get for paying, it means a price in a currency. Scam :guru:

    Science doesn't make moral judgements.
    Science doesn't make aesthetic judgements

    and...

    ..science doesn't tell you how to use scientific knowledge.

    Moral judgements, aesthetic judgements, decisions about applications of science, and conclusions about the supernatural are outside the realm of science.

    It's great to gather as much knowledge as possible but it always comes down to people being able to relate to Your emotions when it comes to music. Listen or Read to the Story of The Streets . You know the UK Rap / Grime Project , Mike skinner lays the concept of popularity down in a great way .
