I encountered some bizarre people in my time, but nothing beats this. I dealt with a kid that is supposedly thinking he's a journalist. And is a hardcore fan of an 80's band. He slagged me off as portraying someone I'm not. He doesn't understand that I have been to multiple museums, I have taken some art courses. It's just about sketching something, oh no it goes far deeper than that. How can someone that copies and re arranges words and post and makes it his own writing and called that journalism. That's really pathetic, I believe. And he apparently considers my art 2nd grader's art and it supposedly sucks? When he clearly requested me to draw the Pet Shop Boys out for him, so by him stating words like that to me only proves that he doesn't appreciate art or more so wouldn't even purchase something that was from the same band that had to do with outside their work; he brags to adore about, but instead purchase pointless vinyls and cassette and thinking he's the number one fan and consider me jealous...Please, I get stuff from fans, because I am being myself, I don't ask for much. I make mistakes because I am human, I am not perfect. He gets people to do his bidding yet treats them like they are worthless.
If this person truly adores a band, his reviews don't really prove he has a collection or takes out time to read or comprehend about the band. How can he expect to be a journalist, if he can't even sit up and do research but instead only take information from other fans, that might have giving half way right facts. I may talk about art all the time, but I am artist, I can't help but to discuss art. My art may not be all the way up to par, but at least, I am still determined to learn and to keep practicing. I haven't done much since I have been blogging, but my reviews clearly prove that I know something at least. I don't do all the professional type writing, since this is a blog, I rather do free writing, but that doesn't mean I'm stupid. For a person his age to be into journalism, is oddly bizarre, if he's saying he's into journalism but taken classes only revealing to me that he is just copying and pasting and calling people out of their names because of that. Then also proves that the person doesn't take constructive criticism well, but it is okay for him to slag off someone else. For a person that loves a band, those posts he does, doesn't really prove that, he doesn't do enough research to make sense what so ever.
If he wants to be a music journalist, he obviously needs to listen to all kinds of genres, and at least read and stop making all these little decoration on a blog to prove how gifted he is to make a blog, his arrogance only proves that he isn't going to do well in life. I may have a small collection, but by God, I am grateful to it. I don't need a massive collection to prove how "big" of a fan I am. I love art, it is what I am. If I want to type out like spelling words United Kingdom style, then that's on me. I love bands that stand out for me, because it shows determination of an artist. He's supposedly a songwriter, but he doesn't even appreciate art, some art isn't going to be fascinating to him, fine. But when you're a journalist, you have get into or listen to different genres to see how music developed in different decades, which he lacks that and continues with one band. That's a stagnant move there. When I blog about things, I can make several comparisons because I actually listen to other things besides the 80s. I'm not even a journalist, or an art critic, but I do reviews based on what I know and research. I may bore people with my writing, but you can't say I'm ignorant. Remember the axe swings both ways.
