This is What Music is About

Posted by: Keagan Ilvonen (07/21/10)
Head to the replies to see a new tour video from Jonas Sees In Color featuring footage of the band's totaled van and how they finished out their tour. This is how music should be, support this band by donating here.

Never going to wish ill will on any band, but this video is so completely over the top and self-congratulating it's not even funny. Tons of bands have this stuff happen to them, whether its van accidents or gear getting stolen, but that don't make a video they attests to their strong will and determination to beat the odds.

"Are we going to be able to play the show tomorrow?" What's the point of including that stuff in this video? Come on, now. Bring on the hate and comments that I'm heartless.
The point behind the video is to show that no matter how bad things can get, you come out ahead and have the power to turn your life around. Esp with your passions in life.

It's a video full of a positive message.

Why live life being a downer, ya know?

Just saying this video is way too overblown. Props to them for finishing their tour. I have had many interactions with these guys and think they're extremely nice people. No ill will toward them at all.
I feel them making a video showing everything they do, everything they want to do, and then the bad side of what they went through is not overblowing anything.

It sure bands all the bands out there who are just "..such and such happened...donate money here". This puts a face, and emotion into what they're out there doing and - to me personally - gives more validity to donating and wanting to support them (even if you may not like their music).

And agree to disagree, that's fine. So I'm not trying to argue - just clearing my opinion on it anyways.

Let's please keep this post positive. This was a crappy situation so let's keep the negative thoughts to ourselves.

-insert my NC represent comment that I put on anything about this band or Mercy Mercedes-

It sucks so much that this happened to these guys but at least they were able to get through it. I was supposed to see them on Friday but stuff just isn't working out with the person I was gonna crash with. Oh well, hopefully things get better soon.

well this certainly wasn't a needed comment. TWY have nothing to do with this.
