It has nothing to do with what I want and has everything to do with being a decent human being and thinking of how your actions impact others before you carry out those actions. If you don't value that principle then you're just a selfish douche. There's no arguing that.

those guys are pretty much the opposite of selfish. they give a potential audience of millions of people around the world the opportunity to experience what they're experiencing, for a potentially endless time into iternity. if anyone thinks about their actions at shows and the impact of it on others, it's these modern heroes.

while they offer up a bit of their own experience, recording something for the world to see, you're standing there, refusing to step aside, grumbling to yourself, saving up your hate to post angrily about it on an internet forum, later on. you're the selfish one.
6 years later, just got to say this is bullshit. :shagohod:

Wondering the same. I'm just curious how he ended up about 30 pages back... Regardless, I stand by my words then, even more so now.

I was working through the pages on the mobile version (there's no first page/last page function, as far as I know) and just ended up in that convo. Didn't think you were still around, SUB!

 

I just think that live music is about being in the moment and too many distractions, especially for us extra sensitive to our surroundings, distracts and takes you out of it. Some things you obviously have to accept, like people dancing/not dancing, if that bothers me then I just have to let that go. (I will glare at loud talkers though.) But the way so many people use their phones at shows, it seems very sheep-like to me.

From my own experience, the times I've filmed short clips of a show (usually from the back of the room, I'm a tall fuck) the reason has been to upload to my social media to show friends what they're missing and to get likes. That's basically it, I almost never rewatch clips in my phone gallery and when I do it never matches what I felt during the show. It can bring back memories but IMO, so does a photo. Which is why these people are not heroes in my view, they're just doing what people around them are doing. For short clips for social media- absolutely fine. I mean, I love watching full shows online, more comfortable than confronting my slight social anxiety. But there's just such an oversaturation of amateur filmers that think they're doing something unique.

In the best of worlds: Pick one guy who's willing to film it and then share it online. The people at home gets to share the experience and the audience don't end up with a horde of static cameramen with glowing screens.

Exactly how I feel. I don’t really bother taking video. I’m not going to rewatch it. I’ll snap a quick pic or two but that’s all I need. I’d rather experience the show with my own eyes.
