RAD!!! great read. i wish my gram parson's poster could have warrented this kind of shit-storm ( then again gram isn't the iconic image that jimi is and i'd prob be too busy laughing at perkins' vomments to get defensive )
well, it still hurts when it comes from certain folks.
so, sorry if i was out of line.
also, i just read what i just wrote in this comment. it made me realize what you said hurt me and what i said hurt john warner. i was using a rather doublr standard. i owe john e. warner an apology for some of what i said.
"so, john, i'm very sorry. a lot of my comments were really out of line. you were right to point that out and to be bothered by the unfairness of the comments. again, i'm sorry."
so, yes, i can self- anaylize and learn.
"seabury - i thought we were friends. i've always been rather kind to you. thanks for the nasty comment."
WE are friends Art, sorry, I thought you had thicker skin than these kids here.
My shit stinks, too.
ok, so much for any effort i put in. this started out as a typical little remark about the poster gp style. big deal. i have opinions. so do you. everybody here exercises snide comments. let me know if you ever have an exchange with john e. warner and it DOESN'T turn into something fucked up like this.
i'll keep my opinions to myself. sorry about that.
seabury - i thought we were friends. i've always been rather kind to you. thanks for the nasty comment.
I guess I don't get the hate-on that Art has for this. Joe Strummer, Johnny Cash, etc appear on tribute posters... Maybe it's lame that the family is exploiting Jimi, but that shouldn't weigh on the poster.
art thinks its a hackneyed piece of exploitive trash commissioned by the hendrix estate and would personally be ashamed to post it on GP.
John doesn't see anything wrong with it and feels he was paid to do a job and wants to wash his hands of the situation.
It's up to one's moral compass. Personally I don't post EVERYTHING I do on GP.
you ever met me or talked to me in person art, ever?
you have no idea who the fuck I am, your opinions on the posters is fine, its here for public comment however you are talking shit about someone that you never met and know nothing about, I've never anything or to you or ragged on your work, why the hate man, is there something wrong with you? This is getting to the point where I'm starting to think that you have a crush on me or something
naw. i was after the poster itself. i really honestly do think it's a crass piece of exploitive junk. i really honestly don't think it's worthy of being on gp with these other great posters.
as for the guy, well, at first i got real tired of his coming back at me with his defiance. nothing wrong with that, but he kept challenging my opinion - which i'm not going to change just to make him happy. so, i started getting nastier and nastier - in the time honored manner of gp. finally, i had to pull out my 45 and blast him between the eyes. but, damn, if he didn't come back from the dead and ask for more. the guy reminded me of me (back in the day).
but, then i recognized his manner and remembered that he's done this same routine a dozen times before to goodtimes and others and here he was sucking me down into it. i played his game and didn't realize it.
i felt used. i really did. alas!
i dont know much about the history of how this guy operates i was just looking at this one and seeing you get into him for the event itself then onto the artwork. like i said before its not the worst thing on this site. and you came off very dickheadish.
yeah well maybe so, aren't you like 50 or something, shouldn't you be sharing insght about this biz instead of acting like an adolescent prick
whatever I'm over this as far as i'm concerned you are completely insane
that's funny. a guy named 'fukt' is calling me a dickhead. that's got irony all over it.
to be honest, that guy comes here to kicked. he's a masochist. every time he shows up with one of his hack pieces, he goes through this little exercise of "deer in the headlights' and then wanders off into the forrest, only to show up again with another crass piece of junk passing it off as a "real cool poster", waiting to kicked all over again.
usually, it's guys like goodtimes taking him apart, but i just wanted to know what it was like being the "s" with that guy. doesn't feel very good, and i don't think i'll ever bother again.
it's ort of like tripping a blind guy, or picking the wings off flies. ugly.
how popular is it? how much is it selling for?
what do you consider bragging, fella? self-stroking and then expecting everybody to do it too is feeble-minded work with that grey matter you have.
a picture of jimi will sell anything. this is a crass exploitation done for the most vile reasons by total hacks across the board. i would be ashamed to post this, myself.
but, then, i'm not you, am i?
and yet, you are posting this piece of junk here and bragging it up like it's a great thing that YOU'VE done. that's not very good form.
take your knocks like evrybody else around here, dewd. i've learned that that hardest way possible on this site. it's time you did,too.
back down, take your hits and accept it. you've live. honest.
but, that's just one man's opinion.
i'm sorry art I just don't understand.
I think its a cool poster for an interesting event, they are actually selling screen prints of this at the show
I have absolutely nothing to do with the back end of this show or the people involved. I really don't see anything terrible about this other than it jimis brother using the experience in the name, its a little tacky but not the end of the world
not bait, just observation. this poster is embarrassing to this site. but, that is just my opinion.
and the fact that you were paid to do it is no excuse. i've been paid to do terrible, terrible things. i sure don't show them around with pride. it's bad form.
john, you are showing bad form. that's all.
quit defending your actions. they have no defense. sorry.
i'm not going to take this bait, this poster is as legit and any poster on this site. I was hired by the promoter to do this, there were special requests by the promote which were to include a picture of Jimi, all the text on the poster was was provided by the promoter
I fail to see how I pesonally am tring to pass anything off here, I mean really, I'm not putting on the show, nor do I have anything to do with the hendrix family or what they have going on, I was hired to do this and followed instruction of the promoter
its a legit poster for a legit show happening at a legit venue with legit bands according to the terms of service on this site thats the requrements for posting
oh, probably because you're trying to pass this poster off as a project of as much merit and integrity as 99% of the rest of the poster efforts on this site, when it's actually a perverse sham, flagrant deceit and deliberately dishonest fraud.
that's why, i think.
why do you care so much? I was asked to do a job that had certian requests, I did what I was asked and got paid, I hav no idea what all the details are other than this is a benefit to help with legal bills for the hendrix family
I think its a cool poster and the show promoter loved it so in the end i did my job and the customer was happy and i fail to see what that has to do with you or anyone else.
if you are so interested in finding out more ask the hendrix family yourself
