With the exception of a few, and I’m talking very few, bands and people, this scene is dying.
You can argue all you want, try to poke holes in my logic, but eventually you’ll see exactly what I’m seeing.
When you have to start watching your back constantly because you can’t even trust your friends, you may as well give up on humanity. When did being friends mean that you have to constantly look for a place to stick a knife every time your friend turns around, and vice versa.
This scene is BUILT on friendship. That is all its built on. Sure, the music is there, but when you start fucking your friends over, see how far you can get with your shitty music. (Talking to you, Sin Theorem)
I am friends with Clint Harkness, Adam Cross, Greg Sharick, Jim Albrecht, Josh Hibbs, Addrok Garvey, Kurt Nelson, Tony Asta, Hiran Deraniyagala, Mike Kreger, Kyle Gunther, Aaron Christensen, Dan Faulman, Adam Besant, and a couple others.
I am not a popular person. I’m an asshole. I swear, drink, smoke, fuck and despise religion. I support drug use and don’t deal well with authority. I hate change when it doesn’t benefit me or what I believe in. One thing that people do know about me is that I am deadly fucking loyal to my friends and what I believe in.
Humans are the only species that kill each other for personal gain or pleasure. We are the most fucked up group of animals on this planet. If we can’t even trust our friends how are we supposed to keep this scene alive? Everyone is constantly fucking everyone over.
Open your fucking eyes people. What exactly is so hard about keeping your word and NOT stabbing everyone you know in the back?
