      Uh..how exactly does it mean nothing?

      There’s an argument to be made about this stuff and longterm success, but would your rather be one of the most blogged about bands or not one of the most blogged about bands? If you’re trying to have a career in music and you choose the latter, you’re an idiot. Or I hope you somehow already have 1000 people coming to your shows on word of mouth alone.
