By any interpretation of the ordering of artists (popularity, relevance, musical significance, general fame, current buzz), it seems awfully silly to straight up act like a festival is implying an artists is “better” than another artist because their name comes first. It’s almost kind of like the only way you can’t look at the ordering of a festival line up. Now if you wanted to say something like is that joke Hoizer really so popular right now that he’ll make more ticket buyers take notice than the much more musically significant very famous earth wind and fire (by 4 lines nonetheless) then I could see where you’re coming from.
Musicians are funny. If your not paying for music you’re somehow taking away it’s significance. We all get it, it’d be nice to make a lot of money for making music and it probably contributes to the quality of music when music makers can dedicate all of their time to music cause they make enough money to live off of their music and if they can make a lot of money then more people are tempted to make music for a living which elevates the talent pool. That all makes sense, but because we are dealing with artists they don’t just want to say , “come on man, I work hard and want money”, they want to act like its not about them its about us somehow destroying an art form. Now we’ve gotten to the point where this guy can say, she’s selling her soul by offering a her music on a free streaming service. I get where he’s coming from I guess cause it’s like your filling your personal pocket by encouraging something that’s gonna hurt struggling artists (arguable), but it’s also like saying, “Hey we should be able to get rich off of our music, but don’t use your music to elevate you to a point where you can make a lot of money off of it through less traditional means”
Now I’m just feeling left out for not being able to downvote my own comments.
Some kind of rebuttal would be more interesting then all these comment-less downvotes, I feel like I’ve delivered my points in a relatively non-troll-like fashion. Unless it’s just the typos rubbing everyone the wrong way, which I guess is understandable. There have been enough to disrupt the points I’ve been trying to make.
it’s always embarrassing when you use the wrong your/you’re or there/they’re, but you use the one that requires more effort. I feel like it’s more understandable when you mistakenly say your or there, but when you mistakenly say you’re or they’re it’s like you’re going out of your way to make a mistake.
It seems like you understand it though. You’re personal taste just doesn’t like Eminem. Danny Brown says offensive stuff, but you think he’s good enough that his talent overcomes that and that’s how people feel about Eminem. You just don’t prefer his music.
Too many typos. Far too many.
haha jeez those were some quick downvotes. Point is it’s silly to saying he’s promoting violence against him. The bluntness of the statement implies that those are his intentions when in reality we all know eminem does not want anyone to knock out women. He’s simply using the idea of hitting a woman as a tool. You think that’s inappropriate that’s fine and if you think that intentions aside that this kind of subject matter promotes violence against women then you’re making a broader statement about about using violent lyrics in general. I think you’re implying intention to promote and I think that’s silly.
