Spare Me Flint Eastwood....Spare me.

Hey all, Metro here!  Looks like the mass e-mail went out to all the local goons.  Here is a transcription of the narrative: "Hey all, the narrative of the summer is Flint Eastwood, their new record, and here's the hook, the big deal... She's Gay!  We tried this with Tunde and it bombed so let's put extra effort into this one."

                                                                Spare Me

This is so painfully obvious and transparent, and of course Metro Times was the first to bite.  Here is their press release...I mean latest independent post that hits all the hot buttons...

Flint Eastwood returns with a lot of cash grab love!

                                                                 Spare Me

This completely annoyed me, although not enough to search for previous write-ups to see if the LGBT was cashed in on.  Since I couldn't remember, lets just say it wasn't.

The latest media push for the latest failed local Detroit act reeks of desperation for a band/act that will never break out, despite shows in Nebraska.  My main point is why wait until 2018 to play the gay card?  Lets be real here.  Alternative lifestyles have been increasingly accepted since the 90's....the 1990's.  Thank you MTV, George Michael, Concert For Life, and...Cindy.
Now that Flint Eastwood has a new record to push they have a new angle to exploit, and it is insulting to any LGBT artists that have been in the public eye before this release. It is painfully obvious and I fully support the LGBT movement, and it ticks me off when people exploit it, which is what is happening here. I've volunteered at Pride Fests....Years ago! No angle.  No records to sell.

If this halfwit really gave a shit, she would have trailblazed and spearheaded this movement....But nope.  Waited until it became convenient for her.  Since this act started there have been numerous public figures from politics to sports to even professional wrestling have come out.  Yet Flint Eastwood waits until they have a new record to bore us with.  Should have not come out as "gay" but rather "fake".  And the Wonder Sisters/Zany Siblings did it first.

From the Iceman Commeth,
Bryan Metro

Now you’re the gay police? People come out when they come out. Who cares. I liked it better when you were a predictable prick. Fuck off Brian.

I may have been in a crabby mood when I wrote this, but my take on it remains the same. It is painfully obvious that this act is using the gay angle to garner interest in their new single. And it is insulting to local LGBT artists who have been raising awareness and positivity for YEARS. And who the fuck likes things predictable anyway? And it's Bryan with a Y.

So now you know what the LGBT community is insulted by. We are insulted by you and the likes of you. Your body shaming tactics and constant bullying is what the LGBT community lives with every day. You’re not fooling anyone with your “do gooder” PR job. You are the problem Bryan with a Y.

Stop sounding so sad.

Not sad - disappointed that you don’t get it.

I don't know what I need to "get". I made a point that the timing of the "publicity" for the record was suspect. As for the "do-gooder" thing, those weren't joke posts. There is so much corruption in this area and nobody ever talks about it. I'm not talking city council either (I don't have the time for that venture). I'm talking on the local level. And everything I said was true. If all that hard work was negated by a few posts where I said Hip in Detroit could stand to drop a few (also not exactly a lie) then have fun living in your snowglobe. BTW I fully support the LGBT community and have received several messages from that community saying thank you for having the guts to say what they were thinking regarding using the movement to sell a few records. I will let you get back to commenting anonymously

And here's not a prediction, but a spoiler. Even if I did "get it" and removed all posts that could even be seen as inflammatory, issued a public apology under my non pen name (oh wait I already did that part last year), and spent the rest of this site's remaining 3 months putting out nothing but glowing reviews for up and coming acts along with veteran acts passing the torch (oh wait, that isn't gonna happen with Eugene Strobe partially running the show). Even if I did all that along with making a donation to a LGBT charity of your choice and even donating to the next Electric Six Kickstarter (you know its coming). Even if I did all that. You would still find something to complain about. Because that is your personality type even though I don't even know who you are. Now, is any of what I said a lie?

Again you just ignore what you do (body shaming and bullying) and never address it. Then you tie a nice neat ribbon aground your response and exhonorate yourself. You can fool some of the people some of the time.

I don’t to get into a whole thing but if you’re gonna criticize you should hold yourself and JCM to a higher standard. But you have an excuse for every moral or ethical line you cross. And you’ve crossed many and often. Now go save the planet from terrible bands.

Lol, that's actually what I'm trying to do with this post.
