Dear Pandora,

When I turn on my Twenty Øne Piløts station I would like the first song I hear to be a song which is sung by Tyler Joseph….

Not Imagine Dragon
Not Ed Sheeran
Not Sleeping With Sirens
Not even Fall Out Boy

I also find it funny that on that station I didn’t here one Twenty Øne Piløts song, yet on my Panic! At the Disco station I have heard two already, along with Black Parade by MCR, yet only one extremely long titled Panic song.

Thank you

Non- musicians, athletes, dancers and artists, please read this

After getting this question countless time and knowing countless other people who have had the uncomfortable experience of being asked as well, I thought I might tell you guys about it.

This question is a question musicians, athletes, dancers and artists often get, and it’s a question many of us dread.

The worst question you can ask us is: “And are you good?” when we tell you that we are in music, dancing, sports etc. 

In your mind, this probably sounds like a simple, innocent question, but it isn’t, the answer to it is extremely complicated and it’s very hard for us to answer it in one sentence. What do you want us to say?
“Yes, I am so great, I’m like a prodigy”?
It’s such a stupid question, please do not ask us this.
Instead ask us, how far have you gotten, what level are you on, something like that.

Sincerely,
Musicians, dancers, artists, athletes everywhere.
