Believe me, I doubt he would stop anyway. At Fillycon, he was supposed to play, and like I said, everyone wore his t-shirts and he was having dinner and partying during his time to play and he went on stage and hour to an hour and a half late becasue of that! It's not pessimism if people agree. He has also lied to me at Ponycon 2016 saying "I have tons of new music I cant release because of copyright reasons" and he said hed release it for free, abd he never have! I asked him again at Bronycon last year, I gave him my email and he never sent anything either! Such a liar in that regards, I understand it can be difficult, but come on!
Thats horrible those events happened to you while playing there! D: I wish you luck in the future! If your stage name is the same as your username, I will look for you there! I want to make electronic music, but I just don't know where to start at all...
It's a double-edged sword too when different people are announced, in my opinion, they should be really popular in the fandom, not friends of one another. Internet Empire was friends with some of the performers and that, to me, made it sound much more... corrupt. Instead of it being pony musicians, it was based off of friends. Internet Empire made no pony music at all and was on the same label as some of the others. And not to mention, Jimni Cricket had NOTHING to due with the fandom, only because she plays at Anime cons and has a happy hardcore themed news website. To me, that is to just get their friends and have good praise by news sources rather than have anything that matches what it is supposed to be, and give the fans what they want.
I want new people that have a following and make their own pony music, that is all i am asking, and not be assholes either.
