Israeli music vs Foreign music

MouthWash
THEBOMB

Time for a multi-cultural debate! I will be posting Israeli songs (predominantly Mizrahi) and my opponent will be posting foreign (non-Israeli) songs in response to them. Hopefully this'll work. :D"Mizrahi is a genre that combines elements from Europe, the West, and Middle Eastern/North African countries transported to Israel by migrating Jews."Rules:

Sonnet debate

philosphical
Danielle

For anyone who doesn't know what a sonnet is: There are three traditional forms of sonnets, rather there are two and a variant that makes the third and has commonly come to be accepted as a third form. First it is important to point out that a sonnet is a lyric poem with a topic that is of a more romantic bent. The form of a sonnet is in its name which is derived from Italian, sonnet, and Occitan, sonnet, both meaning literally little song. There is the Italian sonnet, and the Shakespea...

First round acceptance, second round main arguments, third round rebbuttles. Precondition: Because there are no authorities for literature, do not use an outside source to defend your argument. Any citations posted will be considered to be an automatic forfeit. The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;    ...

THEBOMB

Kind of like the "Word Debates". Basically we have a contest on the better music. Voters, vote on who you think had the better choices. Trolling = Forfeiting the debate. I'll start. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pe-MIDDfckw&feature=player_embedded...

Writers debate

philosphical
Vi_Veri

This debate is for any of you book readers, or writers. I felt the need to open this debate in order to expose creativity and entertainment. The point of this debate is for both debaters to write out a short story. The first person will start out the story, with a certain set of characters and a select few settings. In every round the Pro will present a problem in their story. The Con will then continue this same story with the same characters and settings (where rules apply), and fix the pro...

Famer's Story Writing Debating Tournament, Imabench vs Ren!

Ren
imabench

I thank my opponent Imabench for taking part of Famer's story writing debating tournament. The basic idea of this debate is that both sides must together write a story. Whoever creates the most interesting continuation/orientation/conclusion of the story wins the vote for "most convincing arguments." The Glutton's Bane It began with a sandwich. Clearly, not just any sandwich; as a genesis, this was an extraordinary sandwich. Marty, Klaus, and Ginger sat at the...

Can animals (non-human) create art?

ooberman
DaFarmerProject

My argument is that animals can create art for 1 reason. There is no objective definition of art. Therefore, if a man wants to sign a urinal and call it art (Duchamp), or an elephant steps on some paper and an art dealer wants to sell it to a wealthy idiot, it is still art. Art is subjective, so much so that it's a wonder how we let Universities charge people to learn it. Con will have to show that there are objective rules to art that distinguish between "real" art and "fake" art or, m...

Is red a valid color?

anthonysluggett
Zanomi3

I think red is not a valid color because it is not a primary color as much as orange. There is a fruit called orange but do you see a fruit called red? I DON'T THINK SO!!!!! I HATE RED Red is the color of danger.... but red isn't always seen as a bad color in china red is a good color as red envelopes contain money. Well that's what it says on the HSBC television advert. -------------------------------------- Red is the general color of blood....
