    Bah. Bunch of cheap, lazy morons. Pay an art student a little money and he'll make something just as good. And then it'll be YOURS.

    No, it's not ok just because everybody does it.

    Stupid kids... get off my lawn.

    This just blows my mind in this day and age. It takes me fifteen minutes with Blender3D to whip up something presentable for a "band flyer" and I completely and fully SUCK at art. The idea that any band or musical group doesn't have one person with a computer, the ability to download an art program, and fifteen minutes to splash some colors on a page is just mind boggling.

    It's true, the easier things get, the lazier people get. And once again, I feel old.

    And I am right there with you, man.

    Not only lazy, but a talentless hack (and thats coming from another talentless hack...me)
    If you dont have an imagination of your own, you shouldnt be doing promo posters for people...

    Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame!

    All you need to be is young and on the internet to assume it's OK to claim anything you find as your own, and also assume no one is going to notice and call you on it.

    Of course it isn't, but theres a long precent of knocking off movie posters, game box art and even other album covers for club show flyers,.

    I love how you all sprung to "Lame!" instead of being impressed that the poster was making the rounds in the Baltimore hiphop underground.

    Eh. That's the way the underground music scene goes. Cry all you want, it's not like people are going to unilaterally stop using cultural symbols to promote their music any time soon.

    The image they used grabs people's eyes. So they used it. The flyers will float around town for a week and then be thrown away. C'est la vie.

    Hey, I'm not in Baltimore, and I'm not part of it.

    But my brother (who showed me the flyer) is a journalist who has been writing about it since the late 90s. Only very recently has Baltimore Club music started getting any mainstream attention. not unlike the DC GOGO scene, its a style of hiphop/R&B that exist completely within city limits. it could take off like southern rap or LA rap did, just waiting for the right act to come along and make it blow up.

    lol, ah man the memories.

    Those flyer photos were always the worst too.
    Especially when everyone's trying to look like a badass in it with the serious facial expressions, then turns out we can only afford the cheap black n white copies from kinkos that made them look even worse.
    We should've just called ourselves'The smudges"
