Don’t get mad when people reply to your shit, especially when they’re backing your dumb ass up. If you didn’t want anyone’s opinion, you should have written it down in a diary.
That’s like being homeless, going to a crowded street, and yelling from the top of your lungs that you’re starving while rejecting all the food and/or attention you receive. You think you’re invisible?
Dumbass butthurt people thinking they’re supposed to be treated differently. #gtfo
If Steve Smith were to release an album, I would buy it, not one song would be illegally downloaded.

One of my favorite things to read on the Internet on a daily basis is the Self Defense Family Tumblr.
If there’s one thing I hate, it’s the fuck ass motherfuckers, in the audience and even in bands, that complain about shows and merch being too expensive.
Go fuck yourselves.
One of the things I won’t miss from being in Antics is playing shows with a buncha bands that we didn’t identify with (i.e. Emo, Hardcore, Punk, etc.)
Don’t get me wrong, their community is impeccable and I love all the friends I’ve made over the past 3 years. But the music just gets so boring after a while. It’s almost as if the formula just gets rehashed over and over again.
Beards + Shitty guitar work (with some exemplary exceptions) + Whiny singerdudeguy with whiny lyrics about wanting to die but not going through with it (ala Morrissey only less poetic and more blunt) + Same song structure over and over again = Conventional Emo band.
Granted, there have been exceptions that we got to share the stage with and they blew my mind every time I saw them play (TWIAPB, Dads, Pianos Become The Teeth, Van Gogh Sky, and some others I can’t remember now).
Then again, this is something that can be attributed to any genre. I know what to expect at the Indie shows, or the Metal shows, or the weird Churchills wannabe Sonic Youth jam-band shows.
It just sucks to be lumped in with something that one doesn’t necessarily identify with. I can gratefully say that I ended up becoming more open minded about and learned to enjoy Emo and Punk throughout the years that I played these kinds of shows. I also learned what a REAL community of fans looked like and what to hope to build again in the future.
So meh, it wasn’t that bad. But I’ve learned now that I don’t really want to play those kinds of shows as often as I did again.
