Comments from Mark Vandivort

I feel like this is a real life "inside llewyn davis" situation. I can't imagine what its like putting your soul into playing music for people, and the embarrassment and resentment you feel when getting overplayed by another band. I'd pissed too. I didn't know who RHP or Mark Kozelek was before this, so this pr/exposure thing worked. I'm glad it did, hes made some good albums. That being said, I couldn't finish this troll song when he kept laughing.

I really loved "Volcano" off Modern Guilty. I loved that whole album.

I just feel like Haze is just using Banks to get attention. Before this, she was nobody to me. Her first diss track was her laughing and quoting twitter and shit, thats a better rapper? Immature and stupid.

Oh yeah? Never heard of Jai Paul. Probably because they're not a hot chick being pushed in everybodys face by interscope.

Not even hating, I think shes kinda cute and I listened to a song and thought it was ok, but theres definitely a PR agenda with her just blowing up on here and everywhere else. I'm curious what they payout.

Shes a total marketing trap, I wonder how much they pay sites like this to push attention to new artists like her.

From what I gather from this, its just sad that MTV stands for "music television", but it doesn't stand for anything anymore. I'm not gonna go on about the "wheres the music in mtv" point that everybody has already heard, because the VMA's IS the closest thing to music on MTV, and it sucks. Television, money, this... this website you're reading.... all just fueling our constant requirement for entertainment, feeding our emotional interest in consumer distractions. We as a species could be doing so much more.

Tyler is the black metal of rap. Hes trolling everybody right now, I love watching this happen. I feel like hes making a lot of interesting points in his music. Does that mean calling people "fags" is ok? No I guess not, who the fuck cares, why is the word "fag" still a fucking issue? Its in one ear and out the other. Its only a big deal if you let become a big deal. Its just a fucking word. "AWW BUT IT MEANZ YOU HATES GAYZ AND DYKEZ IF YOU SAY DAT". Ok I get it, get over it. Just a fucking word, stop acting offended. I think theres bigger things to worry about then a simple word. Kids growing up in shitty living conditions because their parents were horny and selfish, just one example. "Parents want to blame me all because their kid is fucking up, but FUCK that, You're a shitty parent, face it, suck it up, thats what you should've did before that nigga bust..." I love Tegan and Sara, but they got trolled deep. THIS IS EXPOSURE! He owned them with his response. Is his message hateful? I litterly just started listening to his music after reading this thread, and I think this is music for the new generation. Its taking things the extreme and making fun of it. I could easily see this guy on 4chan taking shit, this is youth culture. Am I defending any of this?? Yes, this is free speech. Deal with it. How about you shut the fuck up? No don't, you have free speech too. Beyond race, beyond sexual preference, beyond gender, he pretty much covers the darkest of everything and throws it in your face. He doesn't JUST rap about raping girls and "fags", he talks about boys being molested, priests and michael jackson, consumerism, school shootings, being black, living in a broken home environment, being young and not taken seriously, speaking his mind and not apologizing for it. And he makes it known in pretty much every song that hes just fucking around, he even starts one song with a full disclosure... "Random DISCLAIMER: Hey! Don't do anything I say in this song, ok? Its fucking fiction. If anything happens, don't fucking blame me white america. Fuck bill orielly." I don't think this is hate rhetoric, I think it may be misinterpreted by people looking for an excuse to complain.

I guess its all about how you present yourself. If I'm like "what is up nigga??!", I don't expect anyone to get pissed because they're my friends and they don't give a fuck. Its a non issue for us, but I understand its not like that for everybody.

May 7, 2010 on Op-Ed By Fucked Up’s Pink Eyes (Damian Abraham): Bands Should Play In Arizona Now More Than Ever
If they're your friends, why would it matter if you dropped the "n-bomb" or not? I guess calling brown people "brown" can be offensive based on the context its used. I know a lot of hispanic people who are pretty pale, so it wouldn't really make sense to use that as a categorization. The bill is racist, I can see that. I've actually heard that cops are kinda pissed, because its just an added responsibility on their plate. I think people get the impression that cops are these hungry, white racists who can't wait to fuck over people, but most cops I've seen are from hispanic orgins and have real problems to address instead of hunting immigrants. The state of Arizona doesn't even have the authority to deport anyone, its handled by the federal government.

Thats me trying to make a point. What you're doing is trying to troll me into getting pissed over some stupid internet topic by insulting the way I look and making ridiculous assertions. And that last quote should've read “Oh some piece of shit Canadian **band** isn’t gonna come to AZ??…"

Personal affront? Where do you live LeMonjello?? I'm sure all of your favorite bands play all of your local venues, and I'm sure you and all of your friends have a lot of fun. All of MY favorite bands skip right past AZ, right past Tucson. And if by chance, they actually decide they WANT to come play here, when "stars" is trying to "boycott" Arizona for political reasons they can't relate to and pretend to care about, to try and prevent MORE bands from avoiding my home.... it fills me with "useless negativity". But yeah, obviously their intentions are in the right place. They get to come off as "politically active" by doing what? Not playing in a state they probably never booked to begin with...?

I love how everyone thinks they know how life is here in AZ. Who the fuck are you stars? Good, don't come here. Nobody gave a fuck about you before you decided to start talking about "boycotting AZ". If you didn't come here, unannounced, nobody would even give a shit. I don't give a shit, fuck you stars. "Oh some piece of shit Canadian isn't gonna come to AZ?? Oh.... well this changes everything, we need to overturn this bill!". Oh yeah, please, start a boycott. I wouldn't even notice a difference, it seems bands already hate playing here. Yes, there are lots of illegal immigrants here in Arizona. Yes, they are "illegal", so why do DON'T we send them ALL back to Mexico? I mean, they're ILLEGAL!! its first word of their political titles! If we send back all the "illegals", our Arizona economic system would collapse. These people who are living AND working here "illegally" account for something like 29 billion dollars of the AZ economy. They are staples to keeping are state running, like it or not. Rumor has it, this new law that passed is a bargaining chip to the republican party so that the democrats can legalize marijuana (finally) and tax it. The last thing republicans want to do is legalize marijuana, especially because it would be difficult to tax it if people from the boarder are just bringing it through. AZ is in a financial mess, I think this bill is also trying add tax revenue by charging the convicted immigrants with a $500 dollar fine, which is obviously ridiculous, but is something people will pay to stay out of Mexico.
