What did you just say? I think you forgot to add the word "on" a couple more times in that Great Welcoming Statement

If anybody, whoever it is can not afford my music that's their problem, not mine. I aim at the higher market, the one that never goes away, the one that won't stop buying music during crisis. The one who's willing to pay 100 bucks for a track or an artwork and brag about his exclusivity. I know this sounds supernuts, but this is how I roll... Nowadays (100% honest) I charge 400 USD along with another friend to play 3-4 hour private gigs at small bars in front of small audiences, max 40 people at least twice a month... If you don't believe it I'll show you some pics as soon as I get them. We don't play any specific genre and it's not about what they know but about what we do. They still pay. It certainly is not about our online marketing but our approach, yeah, I like having amazing numbers to show, such as tracks with an immense number of plays like this one in the contest, but that's a bit of what (whether it's bluff or not) I show when I talk to some rich kid (or an older person), the REAL deal goes into relating to the right people in person... The guy with enough money to have you play for him and brag about it. The other thing about It is being legit... I used to be a gymnast so at anytime during the gig I may pull off some crazy shit like some stunts or if there's some soft music playing and there's toddlers around dancing, start dancing with them, people love it.
I'd give up the small gigs at taverns with toddlers running around and start big with Festivals and Stadium runs :P

The only thing that bothers me about this stuff is I can't see who's actually in 2nd/3rd position.

I'm pretty convinced it's the real guy (see his only other post here).

The original post in this thread is so bizarre, though, that I have trouble believing it's sincere.

This is just one of those cases where whatever the truth is, the only possible response is WTF.
