jesus christ, it's the internet. not everyone is going to like everything you do. just buck up and
move on. you get so caught up in what people think of you on a website sometimes that threads like
this are just funny. oh lawdy lord someone hates something i wrote, i need to explain myself into the
ground. just let it ride and move on. if you want to take constructive criticism then take it, if not,
don't, but quit acting like we're trying to nail you to some fucking cross and tear you a new asshole.
if you want everyone to only say nice things all the time at something you put effort into then good
luck, because that shit ain't ever gonna happen. that's just life. a lot of the reviews you link me to
I like, this one I don't. that doesn't mean that i'm trying to berate you or something.
John and Adam:
lol. john hit the nail on the head. the only reason people should write on this site is because it's a
fun little hobby. there's nothing serious in it at all. i don't think anyone here actually thinks
their writing matters at all on this site. it's just the medium to do something we like. whether or
not anyone else likes it that's not important.
I do write on here for the main purposes of having fun, but I also want to improve as a writer as well... I'm pretty sure that's a common goal. God, you are so fucking prissy lately.
Lol, well I mean I was a little harsh towards Jarrod earlier, yeah.
eh, not really. actually i've been super positive : )
but just like how you have opinions like that i'm being prissy or that people use the word
"jubilation" outside of a church setting, i have opinions on this review.
and john, you've gotta see my pigtails. they look so cute with my sun dress. not gonna lie, i'm totally a little girl, but hanson totally has a thing for little girls so go me! looks like i found me a man
Ah, my bad dude, I was just confused because of how stuck up and all-knowing you've been coming across lately. Anyways, can we get back on point? This album sucks.
i don't know shit, dude. now there's a fact. not a god damn thing.
more importantly SKYRIM. lates dudes. thanks for the entertainment ; )
Seriously guys, how dare you criticize gyro? He didn't put this review up for you guys to tell him what he needs to improve on, obviously.
See, FrankRedHot gets it!
Jokes aside though, I accept and welcome criticism (read my response to Donwer) I'm just also trying to give some perspective back as well. I apologize for coming off as hostile though.

Lol you haven't accepted one bit of criticism. Every time someone's tried to help you in this thread you've gotten pretty uppity or you just tell them they are wrong.
"Edit: you're right, I'll tone it down a little."
No, I do appreciate feedback. I admittedly attacked Jarrod's post though.
Both Adams are the only ones that really gave constructive criticism (John did after the fact) and I questioned Thomas' (am I not allowed to do this?).

Questioning and being a pretentious douche are two different things.
And then pulling Hawks following all of that isn't going to help.
I don't see the fault in the review (biased, I know) because it reads absolutely nothing like my arvo part review, it's just an assessment of an album I ultimately found dry and bland... I don't see how I went over the score. Are we not supposed to focus on structure or use words above a 5th grade level when approaching pop-punk music? At any rate, I'm not dabbling in philosophy or using some kind of deeply profound tone. I guess I get what you're saying about it feeling extraneous, but only very small parts of the review seem that way, I think the vast majority of it is pretty fluid. Your criticism seem very harsh, like, unnecessarily so, but thanks all the same for voicing your opinion.
This is pretentious?
No, it isn't.
But this is:
"Well, please enlighten me - give me some criticisms to help me improve. You've been reading a lot of my reviews, or so you hinted at, so go on, help me out. Please post it in my shoutbox though, for obvious reasons.
Jared: I was just made away of the reasons for you quitting your staff position.. When did you become so bloody self-loathing? "
lol matt youre so little
