hey all... my 2 cents
would i buy this poster or pull it off a wall, nah.
i would however LOOK AT THIS TO SEE WHOS PLAYING THE GIG (that is the point to me). as in contrast to alot of high end art that is posted here.
would grab my attention, that is one of the most important things about a concert poster aint it????
sometimes it's kinda like looking a young designer's portfolio. and the work isn't really bad. it just isn't good and it seems that they have no clue what they're doing. and the only way to respond is to politely say "nice. thanks for coming in."
I seriously doubt our forefathers meant that freedom of speach is the freedom to say whatever you want regardless of the consequences...but that is a whole other debate. People shouldn't need to censor themselves if they use their heads in the first place and think about the consequences of their words.
ya know, things aren't always black and white.......on one hand i do believe that the best opinion posted up here is constructive criticism, on the other hand i do believe in self expression and saying what you feel, not censoring oneself.
how bout this.
say whatever you want.
Yes, the point of these forums is to express opinions. No argument there. But don't you think the opinions should try and be constructive? Someone saying something is bad is just that's persons need to tell the world what he/she dislikes on a personal level. There is nothing constructive there. and that negative comment is gonna stick on that poster forever. This is just my opinion...but I think these forums would be much more powerful if people commented on what they liked. Show other artists why they like them. If you really feel the need to say something negative, try to explain why so that the artist might benefit. Saying something sucks (whatever verbage is used) just doesn't cut it...in my opinion.
