Oh, okay – the chick from Chart Attack (who was in attendance) wrote about it. So I followed the link and read the article. It wasn’t written by her but she’s mentioned and gives a recap of the night. Hm, not one mention of the live blog. Interesting. I would have thought that on top of inviting 20 fans to a private living room show, putting on a farewell to Vancouver acoustic performance, having someone live blog then entire event for the world (20,000 people refreshing miss604.com and leaving over 100 interactive comments) would be worth mentioning. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity, for representing the fans and reporting on such a monumentous occasion, to me at least – it was a big deal.
If you google search “Matthew Good Living Room Show” the first hit is for the post I wrote on Metroblogging and the third is for my live blog post. The fifth is for NearFantastica.com – those guys supplied most of the requests, took a video AND kept track of the entire set list. Not one mention of them at all as well.
I have always tried to be good with my blogging – giving credit where it’s due and getting the whole story. If you’re using a photo, if you’re unsure of certain facts, try and get them straight – do some google searches and see what’s out there. It’s okay to be wrong or guess a little because hey, that’s what the comments section is for eh? :p
But I just have to say, I’m less than impressed with a) the Georgia Straight blog b) Chart Attack. Maybe I should have beat them to it? Maybe I should have passed my “story” along to the papers, but ya know – I kinda wanted to keep it to my blog and the readers here. Was that a bum move on my part?
Maybe I’m over reacting…
Update: My not-so-strongly worded email has been posted on the Georgia Straight blog post (“Matthew Good Goes Bye-Bye“) at the bottom of the page.
