PostSubject: Targeting TGA   Wed Jul 30, 2008 5:35 pm

As you guys all know TGA was a featured video on MySpace and I think we missed an opportunity.

Hyperballad pointed out that she was concerned with

"myspace whores don't come across it and leave comments saying "0MG U GUYZ R HAWT BBQSAUCE LAWLZ PC 4 PC!""

and I think she is absolutley right, but only hitting the tip of the iceberg. I was more upset with the negative response or the insane responses ("not bad for a christian band"), I think we need to find where these places are and make an effort to get everyone on this forum to post a reply so that only positive things show.

For example, when some posted "these guys suck" if we had posted 5 messages real quick saying how much we love TGA, then that message would have been shoved down, lost and ignored. Basically, if there is a piece of shit on the floor it is obvious, but no one notices all the piles of crap in a field of flowers.

So, with that said, I think if you check out the most recent article on http://www.punknews.org/article/29850

you will see there is nothing good written about TGA... we must fix this!

Punknews comments give me heartburn. There was a comment on some interview there where someone was pointing out Brian's apparent arrogance in comparing the band "to Elvis and Bruce Willis."

Yeah.

I'll make sure to leave a comment if I haven't already.

some girl left this one, which I thought was really funny, and the type of comment I have previously mocked:
"Thats baby making music right thuuuur.. his voice reminds me of springsteeeeen and how effin sexi is that."

Two things about this topic:

1) I've got a new one. on geezfools site http://18milesaminute.wordpress.com/
On the right is a menu of the top 10 outbound clicks, this website does get a fair amount of visitors and so if this forum was on that top 10 list we'd get more exposure. So maybe have a browse round his really good site, and out-click the Gaslight Anthem Message board on the top right link list, and try and get this site into the top 10

2) I do think 'Targeting TGA' is a good idea, but only in some cases, I don't like the whole 'censorship' aspect. I think if people want to write "I'm not digging this band, they sound a bit too much like The Boss for me" then they should be allowed to voice their opinions. However I agree with the idea that people who just post on places: "these guys are all dicks, make your own fucking music', these posts should be targeted. So all for free speech, just not pointless trash talking speech

I know this is an old post, but it reminds me a lot of when Lex & I would try to promote the AM! forum. Imagine reading a punknews post about Against Me!, it's fuckin' brutal. Punknews kids are crazy. That being said, I think you could make positive posts about TGA all day and there will still be assholes and trolls all over the internet.
