The Side RoomOff topic chat about pretty much anything other than music. Try to be respectful. Strong debate is welcomed, insults and trolling are not. This area is for over 18's only and may occasionally contain NSFW material, although it's not encouraged.
My advice. Start to take extended pauses between hearing someone speak and answering their question with a "deep in thought" look on your face. Then answer their question with a tangentially related statement, quotation or question that expands on their idea. Works a treat for me
Also learn how to box, wrestle or do MMA.
The ultimate Law: All general statements are false.
This is how I feel with music man. Like you're making and progressing, but still getting no where with people.
I'd say keep working hard and doing what you do and when they see you making moves they will feel like they messed up.
I truly think success is the best revenge, and while you are coming up and trying to do what you love some people don't acknowledge that and fuck'em. I hope you achieve your goals man and when the people see you they may marvel in the works.
