you go to a gig and the promoter lets you in free?
i did when i was put on a guestlist as a reviewer and promoter didn't believe the listed name was mine.
that was embarrassing
hitting on you?
Gemma Quarterman was on the door
LOOK AT ME! I KNOW PEOPLE! THEY LET ME IN TO GIGS FREE. YOU ARE RUBBISH PEOPLE, RUBBISH."
I do get embarrassed about asking whether I'm guestlisted or not. Or asking to be when I think I deserve it. HI GARETH.
otherwise my job would be pretty nerve-wracking
i am quite shy to ask when i know i'm on the guestlist but somehow i am embarrassed about that fact?? but that sure hasn't happened in a long time as i've quit going to shows.
that you would go out of your way to rip the shit out of had it been posted by somebody else
hypocrisy is the only genuinely morally dubiously act. Think about it: if you kill someone, but you'd be cool if someone killed one of your friends or relatives - any one of your friends or relatives - you're morally exonerated.
They are a kind of consensus... I am reading a book on ethics at the moment as I'm still very hazy on the exact definitions of these things.
which I think is what you're saying. But that wouldn't stop me from having an ethical set which completely contradicts the generally accepted one, and from feeling no guilt for doing something most people think is wrong.
like eating humans
Morals require an external consensus to work and are reflective of a popular set of beliefs. Ethics can be more flexible and are more about the individual or situation.
That's my understanding at least.
Aren't criminals 'ethical' when they won't grass on other criminals, for example?
A couple of gigs I go to regularly and get in for free (largely 'cos I've done stuff for them in the past) but it's never especially blatant.
now he's quite smug about it.
unless I've done something to help with the night.
