"I'm a guy on the internet. Clearly I know more about things than you do, so you should listen to me when I tell you how to feel about a certain situation that has nothing to do with me."
that might be the dumbest thing i've heard all day, and today has been a hurricane of stupid shit.
let me start by saying, he's not telling you how to feel. he's telling you the truth. this is just a hiccup in their career (if they want it to be). sure, it seems like it sucks right now, and they're gonna have to do a bunch of extra work, but many shittier bands have overcome much worse things.
secondly, if you think everyone that is on the internet is a novice, then what does that make you? that "guy on the internet" is also a guy that you don't know. for all you know, I could be the bass player of your favorite band.
alright, now that we got that out of the way, let me ask you to take that stupid shit you just said, apply it to yourself, and tell me if it makes sense. it does, doesn't it? that's why I say, that's the dumbest shit ive heard all day.
my two cents is this...this is just another cautionary tale to all of you musicians out there, to make sure you know who the fuck you are signing your art away to. i can't imagine any band signing to MTS after really giving it some good thought.
