I find it interesting that a label would email after a joke is made on one website. Seems like a waste of time to me. Not sure what you would say... "Saw the comment you made earlier today. Can you please act more professional and refrain from making fun our band." I don't understand what you could possibly say without coming across butt-hurt. I suppose an email in good fun, the way Rise does is fine to maintain the relationship.
I talk to people pretty regularly via email... we were talking about something and I made a crack that I'd do lunch if no one was going to jump me for my sarcasm on the website.

Hahaha... I read the post to mean that Victory would essentially contact you if they saw that you made a joke or said something negative about one of their bands.
Oh. Yeah. All the time. Haha. AAALLLLL the time. And then tell me they'd never buy ads again if I didn't stop. Like that would stop me. Heh.

Still like that they're using my (crappy) layout for their news posts on their homepage.

Lulz. You may be biased, but you are still my hero.
Super bias. I like what I like. Everyone's bias. I'm just up front about it.

That is just a waste of time on their end to micromanage every little situation with emails to the owner of one website. If bands/labels can't take criticism/jokes, than there are bigger issues. Not every relationship is buddy-buddy all of the time. That is why it is called a business relationship. If anything, flooding your inbox with complaints would make you less likely to post their stuff, I would think.
Haha. I concur.

Someday I've gotta publish a tell all book.

Can someone tell me what this post is about? I really don't get it.

On the topic of the two labels: I like 2 bands currently on each (CLE and Corpus Shristi on Victory; TCM and MMF on Rise). I don't have a love or hate for either record label.
What's there to get ...?

This does seem more like a blog post than news...not that I am complaining nor mind what you do with your website, but I am curious if there was something to motivate this particular post.


Fun. I've been posting more blog like updates lately.

In This Thread: Jason Tate and a plethora of other AP users attempt to save face after all of their hate on Rise Records.


True supportive label gets true hate for the bands they sign, not the work they do.


But hey, this is AP.net, typical.
In quoted post: A user that doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. What are you talking about?

oh yeah? here's some questions.

How much creative control do you have in your music?

How much control do you have in your career?

how much money do you make at the end of the day?

Do you mind when people tell you how to look, what to say, and how to act?

Does your band sound similar to most if not all all the bands signed by rise?
Who asks someone how much money they make? Geeesh.

people talk about it all the time, you'd be surprised.
I'm 28 and have been working for at least 13 years, no one with any class talks about it.

probably because you make an amount of money that you're uncomfortable sharing with people that make less.

Or I'm not a douche unaware of social graces.

fuck social graces this is the goddamn internet.
And on the internet people talk about how much money they make? Or they lie about how much money they pretend to make?
