|Come Off It|
I'm just blogging about this video as I'm watching it, so I'll just post my notes as I'm going.
Right away I said it sounded like bullshit from where I live then right away on the video they showed "APRIL WINE" from Halifax on the "Nature Of The Beast Tour" in I think Los Angeles and the opening band was Diamond Head...Metallica's influences.
On the video they are showing LA Thrash Metal opening for bands from Halifax who is April Wine a huge rock band to promote Diamond Head plus they have a new record out. Also, if you need to know I have seen April Wine play many times and have met the band a bunch of times and they even came to my old record store years ago to see if I had their cds in the store for the concerts they were playing, and I had them in stock for the show.
So that was all pretty awesome stuff I was doing before I went to Stfx University. See, LA thrash bands and bands like Diamond Head are trying to make a name for themselves off Halifax and bands like April Wine, that's where I am working at on music stuff as a seperate Record Label but I'm right in the middle of all that working on it and see everything.
Maybe as part of my new format I will just post my jot notes like this on the actual blog instead of retyping it later and just use this blog for scrap paper for my jot notes because this topic is stupid anyway.
...more jot notes.
Yeah, so I'm just using Twitter and some of this page for my jot note material..don't worry about I have no subscribers on Twitter or even on YouTube for www.deathmetal.tv , that's mostly all fake anyway on theirs and companies have to pay people to build their user list on Twitter / YouTube like they are staff accounts and stuff and specific promoter stuff is what I have learned from working around all that, like when a video goes "viral" that's all people working in Social Media sharing the video, that's like under contract stuff and it's social media staff sharing stuff on the internet like for Donald Trump and them so that's all just a business and paid for.
So even though there are no subscribers on the page, tons of people still see that anyway because people read twitter etc. but do not have accounts, you have to make that on purpose to get lots of subscribers
Just think of my pages as a dump for my material and scrap paper for jot notes and stuff, like on this post.
Back to the video.
-back in the day they said they your band had to "pay to play" on the Sunset Strip in LA and then it sucked and no one went.
-There are no actual songs on the documentary form the artists on the soundtrack, all the music sounds like ripped off Sepultura or something.
-They said that they didn't get paid for the concerts when opening for Metallica or something because fans broke the windows in the venue and they make the opening band pay for it.
Come off it.
-at 51:50 (a Van Halen reference) it looks like they are using a green screen because the guy talking is out of focus and the back ground is in Hi Def, I don't know for sure tho. What are they all using green screens or something pretending to be in doors or something with a fake set behind them.
