I dont owe anything to anybody. as i have mentioned i do respect those people.
it is clearly you who wishes to engage me in argument, not i. everything ive said you have taken out of context and spun it at such an angle that would make your plight seem correct in contrast to mine. but you are still wrong and still misguided.
also you are still name calling, accusing, berating, belittling , finger pointing, taking words out of context and putting words and thoughts and feelings that i am not expressing and characterizing them to be my own, which they are not. i do know adults that do act in such ways. Plato would have considered them tyrants. all of your name calling reaffirms what some that are learned already understand. your responses are toned with negativity and if i respond with such negativity then i have lost all sense of what i believe to be just and right. it is just and right for you to hold your opinions and express them. i would not be just and right to my own being if i were to join you in your negativity as negativity breeds stress and emotions that will never do good for me , only bad. to thine own self be true.
you sir are a name dropper, you claim to hold some position because of who you converse or associate with. in your minds eye you hold some sort of title because you think of yourself as more important than some others, which couldn't be further from the truth. you've been led astray by your emotions and misconceptions about how things really are. in your reality these issues are cut and dry and you have a clear understanding in your conscious of what you perceive to be just. and so be it, as a free thinker we must applaud you for being so adamant on your stance, but you are not seeing the bigger picture here and you are assuming things because you have a set preconceived notion on how things should work. but nothing is ever that simple.
i would not force you to take a charge from me accusing you of being an "asshole", but i will call you a Machiavellian. that can be perceived as good or bad and both, it is up to you to decide if he is wise or not.
Nobody jumped down your throat
You need a serious attitude adjustment;
i hope this doesn't need to be explained.
Really just enjoy the music and your band. When you play bigger shows and festivals and get a nationwide following, Im sure you will know the name of your band
this gentleman sees the bigger picture and gets it for what its worth because it is nothing more than what he mentions in this passage. we are not the only other band in the states using dead Ahead as a band name, if you believe that then you live in a smaller world that i thought. you wish to come off as some all knowing proprietor, but you sir are not for you clearly have no understanding about what is taking place here.
Frankly, I hope you go ahead with the "Dead Ahead" thing and have great success with it for a while. Down the road, I hope you have built a great following of the brand and suddenly get hit with a cease and desist from the folks from The Schwag and lose everything you had built up to date. That would serve you well and offer a great lesson in arrogance and ignorance... and perhaps teach you the lesson that you don't know everything.
Grow the FUCK up.
you are an individual who is comfortable wishing ill-will on another individual who has not affected you in reality. scary stuff as you seem to almost break down emotionally over the subject. so bad in fact that you would point fingers and make wild accusations at someone who has nothing but good intent and wishes no ill-will back at you.
you promptly thanked them for it - yes - but then disregarded it.
why do you believe i have disregarded their advice? you have no idea about what goes on in my personal workings at home or in my band. maybe i wish to not make pubic what has been said between me and those this directly affects. whats difficult is that you are willingly letting it affect yourself personally. you are trying to speak for individuals that you do not in any way shape or from represent. you are trying to speak on my behalf at the same time and giving those comments negative overtones which i do not want to convey. but you try so hard to make this seem like something that it really isn't, you want to make this your argument which it is not. i am complacent because i have no reason to be anything else but. you wish to change that about me which is not possible as you have zero authority over my thoughts and feelings. If i were to allow you to change my process then i would have relinquished authority over my own conscious which would be bowing in the face of tyranny and is unacceptable for me as a free thinker. you will be unsuccessful in your attempt to dominate my choices and actions. you want all of us to believe that i am a "self absorbed asshole" because i do not do what you tell me to do and i dont think the way that you want me to think.
you want to make it seem as though you have some bigger authority, you want us to know who you know, who you talk to, who you associate with, that you have a boat and that you have the all knowing solution to a problem which has nothing to do with you. so who is self absorbed here? who is coming off as pretentious?
i am not trying to dominate how you think or feel in my writing. i am simply neutralizing you so as to not have my conscious burdened by your accusations, for you find pleasure in seeing another of us suffer from the effect of name calling and bashing. it is you taking comfort in seeing that i have a problem that affects me negatively.
why do you wish for me to think, feel and act as you do? what makes you feel that you have the authority to do so? what makes you think that you will be successful?
there is a simple solution to the problematic banter we engage in. i will not give you the answer to the problem. you are the one in the cave chained to the wall with preconceived notion. you can see the light at the end of the cave but you don't understand it's deeper meaning. you are the one who believes that an object is exactly what you've been told it to be when it in fact is a different object to someone else.
sometimes you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right
