Some people need to GET OUT MORE OFTEN. This includes me - I only turned on the PC to check my bank account and ended up posting in this stupid thread FFS!

seriously - log off the internet every now and again and go do something real, it's good for your mental health and sense of perspective.

Thank you for reminding me of this - I'll be following my own advice immediately.

If your self esteem is so fragile that you can't handle any form of negative feedback about your music then don't render your music vulnerable to public scrutiny by posting it on YouTube. Blame will get you nowhere.

Everything I do on these useless internet forums is basically a social experiment I conduct to gain intimate knowledge of the so-called "music community", most notably the limits and barriers thereof.

But foremost, to learn how I myself react in certain situations.

Everything I say, even typos I make, are calculated and done for a reason.

(For instance, choosing to incorrectly use "your" instead of "you're")

I have turned the internet and everything in it into my own little ant farm. I'm not getting worked up at all; I'm working you up as a means of gathering information and, honestly, as a means of slightly perverse entertainment.

I actually do not care about music at all.

Go to the person nearest you and declare to them, "I'm a musician."

Come back and report on a scale of 1 thru 10 how gay saying that made you feel

Levi, you need to stop kicking off all the time - currently you've alienated way more people than the number of tracks you've made. You're derailing threads and you will eventually get banned.
If you really want to get attention for your music, this is completely the wrong way to go about it. All the traffic you're getting from the forum is going to be coloured by nature of your online persona.
If your last statement about the internet as ant farm was true - well you're welcome to set yourself any goal in life - but there must be better ones available.
I don't like your homophobia either.

leave it. you're just arguing for kicks. you haven't got the forum locked.
if this is performance art its boring. if its a sales technique, you need to make product. if its just time passing and attention seeking, well - you've cracked it.

Thanks for the reply

Well, you can come to the Ableton forums for answers on why you got your feelings on youTube, if you think going too see a comedian is gonna fix your nocturnal enuresis.

give up at what?

What do you think you are better at? The victims, what are they victims of? What is it that you think you are better? Trolling? why on earth do you want to do that?

so are the two tracks you've posted simply fuel for this part of the game. Am I a dupe for saying that I liked the beats - were they precision designed by a genius to elicit the maximum negative feedback on a 24 hour electronic music production forum?

If this was happening in a real space where there was any chance of physical injury I would have left by now.
