    I feel pretty confidently that they're focused on rescheduling for next year before announcing that the shows we already know won't happen aren't happening

    Since traveling's a no-go for a while, I've been revisiting old trip photos and found some shots I never got around to editing until now. These are a few from a trip to Tenerife from this time last year. [IMG] [IMG] [IMG]

    Ok I’ll do it. @ScruffGruff, I read through a few of your comments in the Eminem thread and you’re right- everyone draws their own line on separating art vs. artist. However, public support for that artist demonstrates that you’re valuing that person’s artistic output over the person that they abused. In the case of Jesse Lacey, which seems to be the “mental gymnastics” you refer to there, his art is literally just his diary about treating young women terribly, which to me, has always been the issue with “separating art and artist” in the emo scene. The emo scene is predicated in the notion that these songs are from the heart and soul- they ARE the artist and if the artist is telling us he is a bad man and we are rewarding him for that, it becomes a problem. I am much less versed in the world of hip hop and I’m not really old enough to have understood the cultural impact of Eminem’s record in 2000. Do I think he LITERALLY wanted to murder his wife? No, but I think it’s extremely shitty to write that song and many of the other things he’s written about women. I think he is approaching Kitt from more of a dramatic storytelling perspective, but did we need another man writing a dramatic story about committing violence against women? Probably not then and certainly not now. The entire history of mankind is written by men and is often about violence against women. It’s the legacy of our species - after 2000 years or 2020 years, it isn’t interesting or revolutionary anymore, if it ever was. It only serves to punch down at a disenfranchised portion of society. I hope that helps explain a bit. I see that you’ve chosen to go the troll route in the rest of your posts and understand that putting effort into this reply was likely futile, but maybe not!
