Don't you think Short Stack getting back together was because they weren't really making it good on their own? (Or making masses amounts of money really)
I wasn’t going to answer this because of the absurdity of it… but given that people think this, i feel it should be addressed. The short answer is no. I do not think that at all. I have known these guys for years, since before they were ever signed and money has never been a driving force… not only that, you obviously don’t understand that you constantly make money even when you are not releasing new material… hell i still get sent royalties for the 2 songs i contributed to. And to say they weren’t making it on their own… you don’t break up a successful band to get bigger on your own. Most of the time when bands go on hiatus it is creative differences. And for artists, it is not about success, it is about providing pure art. I could list all the bands that have gone on hiatus, done separate things with various amounts of success, and come back together but i feel like the point has already been made.
What are your thoughts on the shortstack reformation
I tried to think of some short stack related pun to explain how stoked I am that they are back but alas I couldn’t think of anything that seemed to fully appreciate the gravity of the situation.
I (like everyone else) am really excited about their new music and the shows coming up. Hopefully I will be at some of them, because it has been way to long since I have hung out with those guys and been able to watch them play.
Is it political if I tell you that if we burn coal, you’re going to warm the atmosphere? Or is that a statement of fact that you’ve made political? It’s a scientific statement. The fact that there are elements of society that have made it political, that’s a whole other thing.
