Most people would choose deaf in an instant, but I'm curious as to what musicians would think.
Blind, without a second thought.
Tough call though. I love all forms of art and work as a professional graphic artist. But music moves me more than any other medium...I couldn't imagine my life with out.
That's a toughy... I would say deaf, but because I'm a musician, blind would be a better option. But because I already have a disability and need to really be able to see where I'm going, deaf seems like the better option.
Blind, because then I could look like this all the time.
What? Did somebody say something?
I love music but It would be too strange to not see something or someone.
As a musician I would say blind, but when it comes to living the way I would like to everyday, deaf seems the better option.
I'd still be able to play my bass if I was blind, so I'd have to say I'd rather be blind. If I couldn't hear music.....well, I wouldn't be very happy.
I would say deaf because if I had never listened to music I wouldn't know what I was missing. On the other hand being blind doesn't let you do almost anything
it makes you a better musician
Way too close to both of them. Lost 75% hearing in one ear 45 in the other 20/500 with out the glasses.
deaf, I suppose. The lack of music would suck, but it would be less of an inconvenience in almost every way.
On the other hand my eyesight is so bad that it might be less of a loss...
I've thought about this one for a while...
It'd have to be deaf. It'd be a travesty to not be able to admire the curves of a beautiful woman, but it'd be pretty damn nice to NOT have to hear her bitch!
I'll remember that
Being legally blind, and having worked with blind and mostly blind teachers and students from second-grade up, I would easily choose being deaf. You can make up for a lot of communication loss with sign language and simply writing things out. There's far less you can do about being blind, and far more difficulties it causes you. Have any of you actually seen a blind person sign their signature? It's a difficult thing. Most use a small rectangular template and have to very slowly feel it out..it often takes a minute or two. That's just one of many things we take for granted. Missing the music would be bad, but that's nothing compared to never seeing a sunset again.
Deaf, by a long shot.
