JMart Opinion pieces can be well or poorly written, and if they are so it certainly makes it easier or harder to agree with them. However, it doesn’t make the emotion behind the opinion any more or less valid. This is not a rational exercise. People are allowed to like or dislike train song. Everyone shitting on this review Because of The writer’s song preference would do well to look in the mirror and realize there’s a phish song s/he doesn’t like and probably wouldn’t want to be mocked for it.
As for using the word “thing” to describe the writer, probably not the most humane move, but it doesn’t necessarily connote sexism and the subsequent presumption that most people on here are single (and therefore must be reprehensible people) is as juvenile and cringe-worthy as anything written on this site ever. Not that any of us should be surprised.
Finally, to everyone here who came to the show to live in the moment and have a good time, please realize that writing a review necessarily takes you out of that space and into one of analysis and writing notes on your phone while everyone around you looks at you like you’re an asshole for checking Twitter. It’s a labor of love and not easy. If you think you can do better, there are plenty of opportunities. Like every show. So do it. Or zip it.
