So, since launching my patron drive online last week, more than 10 loyal readers have signed up to help keep this blog going, which is pretty killer. At the same time, more than 300 people elected to stop following the site on Facebook.
I guess they were put off by my asking for help in the form of $1 or more a month. That’s unfortunate.
Who needs ‘em? I’ve got you still, right?
Anyways, I just wanted to chime in and thank those who have been supportive and those who have pledged their patronage to the site’s continuance. Also, thanks to the 100-plus folks who follow GSA for sharing word of the campaign on your Facebook pages, and for liking the posts I’ve been putting up about the effort.
However, if you really wanna help, and don’t want to see GSA go the way of the Dodo, become a patron here. With your help, not only will I be able to eliminate ads from the site (which honestly never made me a fucking dime anyways), I’ll finally be able to fork over some cash to the hard working folks who’ve been contributing to the site the last five years.
Your $1 a month (which is less than you probably spend on your daily coffee or what you send Sarah McLachlan to feed homeless dogs) will help pay for the various costs associated with keeping the site online, and whatever’s left over will be invested back into GSA to make it even better. I can’t do it alone anymore, folks. That’s $12 a year.
While “liking” things might make you feel like you’ve done something, nothing will change until you commit yourself to the cause.
Anyways, enough about supporting the last honest destination online for true underground metal coverage, it looks as though Lock Up could join the Summer Slaughter bill.
The organizers are hinting Lock Up might play the festival.
Other rumored acts who could be playing Summer Slaughter include Arch Enemy, The Black Dahlia Murder and Obscura.
And again, help save the site by going here.
