"your happiness will never be denied, faith children, despite all of the tears you may have cried."

i know, i know. i really shouldn't let things like anonymous people disrespecting my song bring me down in the slightest, but i can't help it. i have a few theories as to who it is, but i have no proof whatsoever. i thought it was the same person who commented anonymously here on 'you'll never be my 95', but the more recent comment seems more vindicitive than the first comment. in any case, i know that i am putting myself out there and i should be able to toughen up and take the criticism, but that comment was just spiteful. it's true. it makes me want to try harder to write an even better song, but you know what? i am really proud of 'forgotten formats' and i look forward to writing more with gavin down the line. fuck anonymity. honestly, your opinion is meaningless to me if you're not prepared to show yourself.

Current Mood: meh
Current Music: moon, turn the tides - faith children (little wings cover)

Wotcha! Don't worry about what people say. As long as you have faith in what you're doing that's all that matters. If your music gives you the tingle factor then it's worth it. And as long as this is happening some people will love it, some will hate it but you're getting a reaction either way. Thus what you're doing is worthwhile! BELIEVE!

Uhm...hi! I don't know you but I just heard your song forgotten formats and I really REALLY loved it and just...wanted to tell you so. Really it's a wonderful song, thanks for putting it out there. It's really brave and beautiful of you to do so.

random poster here...
that person is a total butt nugget for saying that!
i mean there's a difference between constructive
criticism and just being a jerk. i think your song
is interesting and fun. keep at it girlie!

et tu

hey, this is (perhaps rudely) off-topic, but about your livejournal icon - did you make that yourself, or have a friend make it, or is it some sort of computer generated image? i've seen tons of people on my friends page with similar style icons lately and if they're coming from some fun, image-generating-machine, i want one! if not - it's still cool. :)

p.s. listen to neil young: "don't let it bring you down."

Re: et tu

hey skye,

i went here and made it. apparently it doesn't look like me though. i think it's better if you get someone to make one of you, because they probably have a better idea of what you look like. it's strange how that works. i want to get someone to do one of me.

lala,
leigh

I'm with you

If someone's going to put an opinion out there, especially if they trash what you're doing, they should at least have the courage of their convictions and attach a name. Anonymously trashing people is total cowardice.

lovely leigh, i ADORE your song! especially the lyrics! i haven't smiled as much when i heard a new song in a long, long time. i'm sorry someone felt the need to say those things to you, but i applaud your maturity in how you took them. don't let anyone take away something you feel good about, because how you feel is really all that matters. thank you for sharing with us. xoxo
