Anonymous asked: Justify selling tapes for $6.50 each.
nice things cost money, idiots. is $6.50 really all that much for a full length cassette with the beautiful packaging that birdtapes always manages to cook up? remember that people put a lot of time, effort and money into making these things and they are by no means ‘getting rich’ off of it.
fuck punk you can have it back. we have a twiabp tape for $15. physical releases for music in 2013 are a frivolity but the purchase of those things help support idiots that still start record labels and the bands they believe in. buy art, steal beer. the double chee at mcd hasn’t been $1 for years but I don’t see any of you losers asking my boy Ronald why he doesn’t do what Fugazi did 20 years ago.
Honestly. What the hell is wrong with punks expecting music to be cheap or free, anyway?
How about this, jerks: Instruments = money. Time spent writing songs = time away from a job needed to make money. And gasoline to go play shitty gigs in shitty basements for shitty kids = money.
So unless bands ask for money for their recordings or their gigs, they are not making money. And if a band can’t make money, that means that the only people that can start bands are the kids that were BORN INTO MONEY.
But I guess the punk rock scene in America is really just a bunch of entitled upper-class white kids whining into the microphone at each other now, anyway.
Fuck you, you fucking children.
I think what this anonymous dude really meant is why doesn’t it cost $6.66?
real punks carry exact change
