    For every band that found success like that, there were probably dozens of others just as deserving who simply never got picked up by the recording industry machine. It seems a lot more balanced now. There's more bands quietly achieving on a worldwide scale before most of the locals have even heard of them.

    Though when it comes to NZ stuff, Beastwars is one new metal band that did get noticed by the industry.

    My 5th house move in two years is pissing me off. Going from Hobart back to Canberra & then will have a 6th move to Sydney so I can do my PhD at Macquarie uni.
    Am glad to get to do further study but hate having to arrange leaving Tassie, which is always too expensive & drags on.

    Because am house sitting my dad's property as he gets ready to sell it, plus half my furniture is there & the rest is on the NSW south coast, so need to get it sorted before I look for a place in Sydney.

    Plus have to sure up applications for uni in Sydney first, so don't want to rush off & then get denied last minute.

    People don't seem to want to queue to get on a train these days. I'll stand back to allow others to get off before I board and fuckwits will walk past me to get on. What's with that?

    Bands that rip people off piss me off! :(

    Pre-ordered a special edition pack from the Melbourne band BANE OF WINTERSTORM last year at the end of August.

    A few updates were posted on the band's facebook over the following months, then FINALLY an update at the end of february stating that the packs had arrived and would be sent out.

    After a few weeks people started asking "where's mine?" to which the reply on 24th of March by 'the band' was:

    "I spent $220AUD to send off ten of these. Unfortunately Harley don't pay me enough to be able to send out mode than 10 a week. These bundles cost me $3000 plus the $1600 to record them. Unless you want to ride your push bike here and pick them up instead of waiting you're welcome to claim a refund with PayPal. "

    Yeah fine - BUT I paid $55 for my pack, plus $10 "handling". So, maybe think about how much these things are gonna cost before putting a price on them???

    And there hasn't been a single update from the band since the above snarky comment, with lots of people wanting updates.

    Poor form. I'm not as bitter as some about it all. I'd be happy to pay more to cover postage just so I can get what I ordered!!! But its unfortunately left a really bad taste in my mouth, for a band that I am/was a big fan of.

    That's a really weird way of going about things. Did they not pay for the bundles up front and have however many sitting there ready to be posted? The $10 handling should have been more than enough. What a way to needlessly piss of fans.

    Yeah very weird - and it wasn't a Kickstarter or a Pledge or one of those things - it was a pre-order from the website kind of deal.

    If it was a kickstarter I'd be a little more lenient.

    Just an odd situation all round.

    Someone posted in response to my post on the BoW Facebook that they received their bundle the other day after ordering it September last year so there is still hope for me...

    ... but yeah I'm not a fan of the way the guy has gone about this....

    Poor form. You treat your customers/fans with The Most Respect, that's the #1 rule. We actually lose money sometimes trying to give you guys the best deal, if we've misjudged how much something would cost or the demand for it. It was OUR fuck up, not yours, and we should wear it, end of story. Any band who shifts the blame onto their most important resource is not gonna stay in business for very long.

    Yeah Tim, the way you guys handle the business end is top notch I reckon. I've never had an issue in the 13-odd years I've been buying stuff from you.

    There has been the odd occasion of the store double charging people or orders getting mixed up, but we're always quick to get on it and try our best to make the customer happy if they're put out. You don't fuck with loyalty, ever.

    Good thinking. It's hard to gain loyalty, but very easy to lose it.

    While it doesn't really piss me off, it does make me face-palm pretty hard. The level of terrible is off the charts here...

    Adding Missy Elliott has got to be the perfect way to make something bad even worse.

    Anyway, it's up there with what pisses me off today: doing beautiful long farts that sound like a cat purring, and there being nobody in the vicinity to appreciate them. :(

    Is everyone really mellow these days or have all the pissed off people gone elsewhere?
