What will it take? rant v126.96.36.199

The idea that everyone is "too busy" with their lives or 'projects' is pure B.S. too, I know damn good and well you are checking up on facebook at least three times an hour. So what is it? Are you too good to write about a live show, post new pictures of your band, support what's left of out local music scene? For Christ's Sake, the last post was a guy advertising as a DJ / Karaoke (no hate, really reasonably priced). I'm not here to complain about our downfalls as musicians, but rather to show my distaste. Much like a parent that finds out their child is gay. I don't love you any less, I just wish things were different. So I will leave you with this thought. F*** You. You had a perfect opportunity to make something great. All of you... All of us. The tools were handed to us, with nothing asked in return. We could have all formed a fraternal brotherhood of sorts and banded together to make one hell of a music scene, but we would rather sit in our garages and talk crap about what we get paid. I'm done. From now on, you are all a bunch of nameless assholes that are pushing in on my potential profits. I will only go and watch a show to improve my own performance and even then the shows without a cover will take precedence. I will not help support a culture that is hell bent on destroying itself because I no longer appreciate the Irony.

I still say that the smoking law that was passed several years ago is partly responsible for the decayed music scene. If you are 18 and can buy smokes, you should be able to smoke in a venue with 18+ shows. I understand the health part of it, but the majority of people who go to these venues do actually smoke, and rather than go pay money to sit in a place for a few minutes at a time in order to go outside to smoke, (because drinking does make you smoke more,) people are opting to just flat out not support our music scene. I think that law should be amended to make bars/nightlife type venues exempt from the age restriction for smokers inside the venue, considering the majority of patrons do smoke.
But yet, i digress. There are probably only a handful of people that will read this. Maybe i MIGHT get a response from the poster. But after coming to this site to find info on One 30 Edge returning, and find NOTHING except a DJ promoting anything, i felt i had to throw my two cents in on the matter. No matter what style of music, WE DO NEED TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER IN THIS REGIONAL SCENE.
