cloudwalker is a funny dude.
i hope you realize that we’re not attacking twisted. we’re simply venting our frustrations towards a business that has, time after time, failed to keep its word. that’s our gripe. we’ve met and chilled with si p and si b and both of them are wonderful people. we know they don’t MEAN to do this, but that doesn’t excuse it. if something’s broke, you fix it, you don’t allow it to continue. we have the utmost respect for twisted, which is why we’re so insanely upset when they are unable to meet the deadlines that they themselves have set on numerous occasions. we’ve been supporting the posford experience going on 10 years now.
at the end of the day, twisted is a business. they are out to make money on their product. how can a business expect to make money on a product if they’re constantly delaying the release and alienating fans by not making up for it. a great example is that whole dr. pepper/GNR fiasco. DP offered the free drink, but on the day that you could claim your coupon, they were overloaded with people and couldnt’ fulfill everyones request. so instead of just saying sorry, to bad, they actually made up for it by extending the submission period by a day or 2 longer. so although DP fucked up, they took responsability for it and made it better the best they could.
as for attacking you, you called us whiny bitches basically, so what do you expect? we don’t even know you, so we’d have no reason to attack you. and by no means were we attacking any other twisted fans. we love twisted fans. most of our fans are twisted fans. we need them!
anyone who thinks vicious delicious is a good album really needs to have their ears checked. seriously. it is one of hte biggest pieces of crap we’ve ever heard in our entire lives. and this is coming from people that have seen IM a million times and adore everything through IM the Supervisor.
As for our band name, it actually wasn’t inspired in anyway by IM, it was inspired by one of us being very inhebriated and attempting to microwave a sandwich that, by all means, should NOT have been microwaved. and you do realize that infected mushroom stole THEIR name from an israeli punk band that broke up before IM started, right? there was a band already WITH that name…
and feel free to comment on our music. we’d love to hear your opinion. that’s why we post here. we don’t expect everyone to love our shit, we know some people love it and some don’t. we’ve had more than our fair share of both good and bad reviews (hell, we got one review that basically said we sucked more than a shit sandwich!). honestly though, we do what we love and we have a blast doing it, and if people love it, then great, if not, then so be it. music is purely a matter of taste, and not everyone has the same tastes.
are you telling me you’ve NEVER downloaded a song from a p2p network in your entire life? seriously? i can assure you that between the two of us, we could open our own record store with the amount of music we’ve purchased over the years.
yes, we have downloaded software, then bought it if we liked it. if we can’t afford it, we try and find freeware to compensate until we are able to afford it. though i don’t see what that has to do with our “credibility”. it’s not like we denied it at any point.
we have no hard feelings towards you, and in general, we still adore twisted. we’re unhappy with what’s going on, and that’s ok. it’s alright to be angry with the things you love. if they didn’t inspire passion, either positive or negative, then your feelings wouldn’t be real.
at the end of the day though, radioactive sandwich loves everyone (well almost everyone), and we certainly love everyone at twisted and everyone passionate enough to spread the gospel of their artists.
