I’m at work but can’t stop thinking about VIP tickets after Parachute’s addition of the $100 option, so I’m going to quickly rant it out here so I can focus on other things.
I’m saddened by the fact that it’s seeming more and more like they (and mainstream artists) are using money as a way to determine the most dedicated fans. Only hardcore fans pay to get that opportunity, right?
I consider myself an extremely dedicated, supportive fan and have for many years, but I just don’t have the funds to buy that ticket. So parachute won’t notice me, won’t hang out with me, won’t pay attention to me. Suddenly my love for them doesn’t matter and only my money does.
I’m honestly disappointed in them. Normal VIP is normal, but $100?
I remember when they would hang out with fans after shows for free.

"I was an English teacher. The demands of the system required that I give out grades, but I never felt good about it. How do you grade someone’s writing? Writing is about revision. It’s about access to self. If a student writes a poem, and it’s the best they can do at the moment, how are you supposed to compare that to the student sitting next to them? How are you supposed to give one a 90, and one an 85?"
