Despite the large amount of bands I’ve seen,

There’s still a chunk of bands that I’ve been meaning to see and just can’t seem to make it to their shows/they don’t come around often. These include:

  • Korn
  • Five Finger Death Punch
  • Mudvayne
  • Atreyu (I missed them at Taste of Chaos b/c I was waiting in line to meet Bullet)
  • A Day to Remember
  • Dope
  • Linkin Park (Pre Minutes to Midnight era)
  • Puddle of Mudd
  • Rise Against

I’ve probably had the opportunity to see most of them, just never could get around to the show.

So I maybe sort of got a “job” writing for a music magazine.

Basically, I tell them I want a ticket to a concert, they give me said ticket, and I go to the concert. Afterwards, I write a 300-500 word response or review to the concert and send it to them. End of transaction.

Do you know how much money this is going to save me?!?!? 

Dear people who post band lyrics on ANY social networking site,

For the love of God, please get them RIGHT! This is definitely one of the biggest pet peeves I have. If you’re going to post lyrics, the song obviously means something to you, therefore you should care enough to get them right. I don’t want to read your bullshit interpretation of the lyrics. They’re fucking WRONG and if they weren’t written that way, they obviously weren’t meant to be that way. It’s not impossible to go online (the bands own website might have lyrics available, most I’ve seen do) and find CORRECT lyrics. It’s just so frustrating seeing incorrect lyrics, especially of my favorite bands. 

Also, if you are going to post a video or audio file of a song and include the lyrics, POST THE WHOLE DAMN SONG. Don’t leave out parts of the song! Why the fuck did you ever think it was a good idea?!?!
