Hey guys, I didnt mean to be all ballistic last night. Totally not going to drink and post on messageboards about music ever again. I appreciate everyone's thoughts and I know some of you were just trying to help. Haha. You have to realize I'm a mostly socially retarded weirdo so I didn't mean to offend or anything. |
: Yeah, i probably shot myself in the foot there
: They are pretty fair enough reasons for not
: doing the reviews. Although the problem can
: be overcome if there were requested reviews,
: you could always have a disclaimer that
: there is no obligation to review the work
: and that you could email or post links etc
: it but there's no promise for it to be
: reviewed in the indefinite future. Although
: you may feel that may be rude to people who
: sent the work to you, well it's lot more
: polite than the A and R people in record
: company who are "supposed" to
: evaluate sent in recordings.
: Although saying that, that's still extra
: work for you.
: In terms of point 3, it really was just a
: joke. Reviewing unsigned artist isn't
: pretending to be a professional critic or an
: A and R manager at a record company, if
: anything it just makes you look like
: supporting talented unsigned struggling
: --Previous Message--
: 1. As you said, people would start sending
: things en masse (I actually get asked by
: people to do it every couple of months,
: believe it or not) and I'd have to start
: sorting through what to look at and what not
: 2. I really really do not want to spend
: *more* time on my site than I currently do,
: nor will it be possible to do so.
: 3. I don't really like the idea of having
: the facade of being a wanna-be professional
: critic. I'm an amateur reviewer; an amateur
: who takes what he's doing seriously (because
: I can't help but try to do a good job in
: pretty much anything I care about doing),
: but an amateur nonetheless, and I like it
: that way.
: "Or maybe it's the idea of listening to
: music sent by me and he has some really
: negative perception of what it will sound
: like based on what I've written on this
: board. "
: I'm sure your music is fine.
