Ok, that’s about that post I wrote yesterday.
Some people didn’t get was I was trying to say.
I don’t care about how many VyRTs MARS do, or how much they are, about those streaming I have a solid opinion and won’t change. I don’t think they are worth paid and that’s why I haven’t bought any. I just disagree with it and that’s what most of the people understood, that’s right. You can think it’s ok to pay, not 100$ but 10$ to see an streaming with “quality” ok then.
The reason why I did the post, is because the things Jared said, the farm thing and how hard he worked and that if people complain about the prices it’s because they have never worked hard enough on something to value their work. THAT’S WHAT MAKE ME ANGRY.
My personal situation has a lot to do with this anger, I’m living in a country in which “a farm job” or however he said it’s something people would kill for.
There is people working for almost nothing, and those are the lucky ones who can work. He may know how to value a job, but according with the things he said he knows nothing about not being able to work, no matter how hard or how prepared you are. YOU CAN’T.
That’s what I was trying to say with the post.
But today, I read some of the “responses” my post got and I have some things to say:
While it’s true a lot of street teams don’t make any money or ask for any, that doesn’t add any validity to your argument about VyRT. VyRT is a business. What they’re doing is NOT the same.A street team, no matter how big or even if it’s organized through official channels, is generally a volunteer basis organization. People sign up knowing they won’t get paid, and if they ever happen get some tickets or merch out of the deal, it’s a perk, not an expectation. Sorry, but your street team argument really is somewhat invalid here.
I get that you’re trying to say they’re doing the street team without monetary compensation because they want to, but they signed up knowing that. The folks at VyRT didn’t apply for their jobs out of the good charity of their hearts. They are getting paid to be there. And where do you think the money to pay these people comes from? And what about the band’s time? That’s not free either. It costs them money to bring us music, tours, and luxuries like VyRT and merch. Even if you can’t, won’t, or just plain don’t buy into all that, this is part of the music BUSINESS. Money, goods, and services exchanges hands. And those who think they deserve these things for free because of whatever reason need to quit vilifying artists for being lucky enough to see some profit for doing what they love. That’s not why most great bands do what they do, but it is what enables them to keep doing it. It’s your choice obviously to buy or not to buy something, but your personal anger seems to stem a lot deeper than just about VyRT.
