kid rock

I warned you didn’t i?

I love my kids and they surely love music despite their age.  Pepi is 6yrs. old and Paddy’s only a 1yr. and a half. I’ve often been teased by Lourd of Radioactive Sago Project that my kids would probably like the opposite of what I’m into in terms of music. For example, if i listen to, say, Black Flag then they would probably be listening to Black Eyed Peas. Pretty funny and scary all at the same time but Pepi and even Paddy have proven, that’s not the case. Quite evident it’s in the blood but if that notion is hogwash to most, then at the very least, it’s the environment that dictates the outcome. It’s really what you expose your kids to.

Before you contact Bantay Bata, no i don’t tie them to a chair and force them to listen to Craig Armstrong or Ryuichi Sakamoto till they’re brainwashed. In fact, anything age appropriate in the Disney/Nickelodeon/Cartoon Network/Sesame Street are encouraged but when they’re constantly within hearing distance of what’s on rotation on the Ipod or turntable, they really get curious and are drawn to the music. They develop a taste for it and i suppose, further strengthened by the “its in the blood” theory.

Well, so far so good.
