[quote="Gac"][quote="junnie"][b][size=200]Gac is an over-analytical bitch who takes musical success way too fucking seriously.

Max Fischer is usually just a bitch, period.

Shut up and enjoy the music - or if you don't enjoy the music, maybe consider finding an anger-alleviating hobby to vent your disregard for entertainment.[/size][/b][/quote]

And Junnie is on her period. We all have our issues. It doesn't change the fact that Julian is a scavenger of others creativity.[/quote]
So it's scathingly wrong to be inspired by past artists and philosophers?

[i]What makes you think the people that got money got it by someone helping them? They had to WORK THEIR ASSES OFF to get that money... [/i]

That's why J. Thief Casablancas has access to the global press, all based on his fathers influence-- that's why he has access to global club promoters, based on his fathers influence-- that's why he has access to physical resources others don't, based on his fathers influence.

Also, there is very little hard work involved in raping other artists. I know what is involved in the process of creativity quite well, because I utilize my brain to its full capacity, both intellectually and intuitively.

[i]If Julian wants to help others that's his business.. it's not yours. That's why socialism doesn't work.. because you can't force someone to do something they don't want to do..[/i]

I'm not forcing anybody to do anything. I am merely sharing something the "emotionally balanced wealthy" know about already-- when you give back more value to the world than you take from it, the entire world is uplifted. His creative talent is sub-par, based on my observations of his thieving from others -- this is a logical, analytical, ego based ability, not a creative one.

[i]It's really the opposite.. it's people taking from HIM.. they cop his music and pretend it's their own.. like PHOENIX and a ton of other bands..[/i]

Phoenix was around first. I was around when they were forming and witnessed their growth. However, they are nothing special either. More privileged brats.

[i]LOL.. WTF? What the fuck is he supposed to wear? Suits? He could wear anything and you could find a beef with it.. [/i]

It's not about what you wear, it's about the identity and image you blatantly promote. He desperately wanted to simulate the life of a tortured man, drinking himself to death because daddy didn't love him, or whatever other excuse he could find. Like I mentioned earlier, the greatest luxury the wealthy has is to simulate the life of others.

Now he's trying to re-invent himsef, and in doing so needed reference points. There began the theft, and why the style shifted so drastically during First Impressions of Earth. He had access to an unknown artist, who I will not mention for their safety, whom he scavenged heavily for his "new identity". How pathetic can you get?

What makes you think the people that got money got it by someone helping them? They had to WORK THEIR ASSES OFF to get that money... thye had to take risks.. no risk.. no reward. SOCIALISM does not work... it's a great idea.. so are money trees.... but it's a fantasy. People have to help themselves.. PERIOD. If Julian wants to help others that's his business.. it's not yours. That's why socialism doesn't work.. because you can't force someone to do something they don't want to do..

[quote]If you have abundance, you GIVE, not take.[/quote]

Wrong.. if you are lacking.. you work your ass off... it's the only thing that will work..

[quote]All Julian does is take, take, take... from the poor, the unknown.[/quote]

WHO?

It's really the opposite.. it's people taking from HIM.. they cop his music and pretend it's their own.. like PHOENIX and a ton of other bands... Julian was inspired by something but made it his own.. others took Julian's music and added nothing of value to it.. they are just parasites. Julian also gave all the credit to bands he was inspired by.. the people who jack him don't say shit..

[quote]He even takes the identity of the poor. Dressing like a rogue, raiding thrift stores, ripping off the style of underground artists no one has heard of. Now, rogues cant even have an identity of their own. What sort of madness is this?[/quote]

LOL.. WTF? What the fuck is he supposed to wear? Suits? He could wear anything and you could find a beef with it..

[quote]He CAN do something of value. With his new record label, Cult records, he has a duty to help unknown artists find success.[/quote]

No he doesn't... that's communism.. it doesn't WORK.

here you go! i'll join ya later...

[i]Don't you think it's bigoted to assume that because someone has money they are bad and not worthy of doing anything? What you are basically saying is that because Julian's dad had money he had no business even trying to be a musician.. and it would be impossible for him to do something of value...[/i]

What I am saying is that when you are born with a gift like wealth, it is your duty to be of service to man with that gift. If you have abundance, you GIVE, not take. All Julian does is take, take, take... from the poor, the unknown. He even takes the identity of the poor. Dressing like a rogue, raiding thrift stores, ripping off the style of underground artists no one has heard of. Now, rogues cant even have an identity of their own. What sort of madness is this?

He CAN do something of value. With his new record label, Cult records, he has a duty to help unknown artists find success. He would make an excellent producer, because he has a strong analytical mind, thus his ability to steal and harvest ideas-- this talent could be used to re-apply and re-think them with other, less known artists.

If it becomes a vanity label to serve himself, which it likely will, he will find suffering soon enough in his life; an unfulfilled emptiness of heart. Heavy is the heart that knows its own crimes.

YEAH WELL! Gak is a slang term for cocaine isnt it . What about all the poor innocent people who are hurt and crippled by the cocaine industry every day , whilst all these organised crime gangs are getting rich off it.

Your promoting that!!!!!!!!!! With your name , everytime you write a post!!

Don't you think it's bigoted to assume that because someone has money they are bad and not worthy of doing anything? What you are basically saying is that because Julian's dad had money he had no business even trying to be a musician.. and it would be impossible for him to do something of value...

[i]"I actually think the Strokes not being poor helped them not be sell outs.. they didn't have to take any record deal that came their way.. they didn't have to agree to do music videos if they didn't want to etc.. I think a lot of these poor musicians that pretend to be rebels are actually the sell outs.."[/i]

What poor musicians? Every semi-popular to popular artist today has wealthy jews backing them, family support/investment, or criminal connections. I am fully aware of how the industry functions from behind the scenes, don't you? You have no concept of what "poor" means.

These poor artists I speak of are the ones you NEVER hear about, save for very unique and rare occasions. Once in a blue moon, you get a gem from Gary, Indiana, with inhuman drive and talent who ascends past the barriers of his upbringing and inspires an entire world. Every now and then, you find a brilliant mind and spirit, an icon born from the ghettos of Memphis, Tennessee.

Then you get the bastard son of an elite businessman, a rich prick from new york city whose entire profession thus far has been to make references to other artists. How brilliant!

I actually think the Strokes not being poor helped them not be sell outs.. they didn't have to take any record deal that came their way.. they didn't have to agree to do music videos if they didn't want to etc.. I think a lot of these poor musicians that pretend to be rebels are actually the sell outs..

the Strokes also were able to make music unlike the mainstream for this reason too.. why do you think all the poor kids are doing the same thing all the other bands are doing? Because it's safe! Julian knows that money and hot girls don't make you happy.. he saw it first hand with his parents and especially his dad.. so he had no desire to sell out for that stuff.. But Albert may be a little different.. dating super models etc..

id also love to know who are these poor unknown artists , Julian has ripped off??????????????

You rich scumbags all think the same.

You make stealing and inspiration have the same meaning.

Inspiration is only inspiration because no one is hurt by it. You are inspired by your peers and your mentors.

Stealing is stealing because you are hurting someone-- hindering someone elses career or life who has less social pull by taking from them without acknowledgment.

Eventually, you'll learn the difference -- when someone steals something from you. Then you will feel the pain it causes. You will loathe the day, and you will remember this one.

Legends who were inspired by their peers and mentors include Jimi Hendrix, Prince, MJ, The Beatles, etc. These people will remain in history indefinitely because they did not abuse the lower ranks of their industry.

Some prick hipster who inspired a generation of derivative shit has no place in the history books besides being the bastard son of an ingrate elite business mogul. Good luck trying to find a way to self-deceive yourself about this. One day, all that I am saying will seep into your every pore; every nuance of your mind will absorb all that I have said, and you'll have no other choice but to accept the truth that you know deep down already.

GAC your an idiot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some of the best bands of all time had a rich upbringing , The Stones were all rich boys from london whilst the beatles were working class northern lads , but the Stones obviously sounded way more dangerous and rough , its whats in the heart that counts (sorry to be corny) The clash were rich as kids to, so was blur , radiohead , arctic monkeys, the libertines, gram parsons

It doesnt matter if your rich or poor , writing music is really hard and money aint gonna help. Julian prob didnt have to struggle much job wise and money for rent , instruments and stuff but he would still of felt pain about girls , friends , life and that.

I knew you couldn't do it.

Most TRUE LEGENDS are inspired by their MENTORS, those who achieved success and popularity before them. Not the poor, not the unknown.

Unfortunately, that's your pathetic employers modus operandi -- take from the poor ("underground" artists, who get no mention from him unless they add social value to his bio), and give to the rich (hipsters, his own ego).

The greatest legends that enter the hearts of the masses for eternity were born from the bottom of the barrel, because their story is compelling and honest, their drive for success and popularity necessary for their survival and fulfillment. Your man will only make history because of his wealth and connection to the elite. Sorry.

So if Julian is a thief then show me a band that isn't... good luck with that...

You're right, I'm not like Julian, because I have a sense of ethics and I don't steal from other, less known artists.

I'm also not like Julian because if I have wealth, success and riches, I choose to help people directly with that strength, not ingratiate my own ego with a meaningless, self-aggrandizing, thieving solo album.

If I'm in a cult, I'm in a cult of one-- because I'm the only one on here that wishes the demise of the entire group and their solo efforts for their lack of sportsmanship for their fellow musicians. I hope they suffer greatly; and they will, of their own guilt.

They are old men now, the industry is changing, and they no longer represent this generation. All that will be left is your meaningless paycheque for your "street team" work lauding J "the thief" Casablancas. Like father like son -- two disgusting, ingratiating male egos. And you are the same for supporting such a louche.

Not all fans are a reflection of the star.. most "fans" in general are hipster groupies who are fans of the Strokes because they are popular.. that's why they like Albert more than Julian.. they fit hi more than Julian.. they are also wannabes like Albert... and Julian doesn't follow the group.. so you can't say you and your cult friends are like Julian.. plus h ha talent..

Your fans are a reflection of you. Go figure, huh?

Control freak fucking douches. Sounds familiar.

Team Defect taking a more passive aggressive attack.. you're so clever.. NOT.. and Serious LOSERS. control freak dooshes. Julian would be so proud of his dumbas$ fans. LOL

He's the one who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he knows not what it means
Knows not what it means
And I say
He's the one who likes all our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun
But he don't know what it means
Don't know what it means
And I say yeah

You must be kiddin, He can't sing the chorus of "Glass" , even though hes gettin better at the end.

I'm pretty much disappointed with the singin of jules in all these live videos in fact.

I like his performance of Glass! I have more respect for that song now. I think his voice in this live version is a lot better than in the actual studio version.
