Re: The Wandering Madman new video

Must be nice to mooch off people and play music to "spread the music". 
Yikes!   Sounds like you don't believe in the inherent value of art.  looper's delight is a misguided place for such a sentiment, IMO.

Any artist who can make their art happen has my respect.   Do you not have a music of your own burning a hole in you-- needing to get out?  So, why the disparaging comments about another's vehicle for _expression_?      

One of the things I love the most about LD is that it is, by and large, a supportive place for artists to share their work in context where all perspectives are at least tolerated if not valued.  

I find your post inconsistent with the LD culture that I have come to expect and that I value so much.  

Elmer, Please do share your own work right away so  that we might change tone here and show you the kind of support that every artist deserves from other artists.

I will gladly donate money to an artist whose work really inspires me because I want them to be able to continue to do so either by buying their album, seeing them perform live, or donating to their kickstarter project.

I have not seen any work from you yet Elmer that compels me want to donate to the Fuddski Fund. If you ever create something that I happen to think is great in the future I will gladly enable you to mooch off of me.

What I don't understand is …. What compels you to take the time to post something with such negativity?

I will also accept donations so I can sit in my living room and press buttons on my looper.
