Now if you wanna change society that's where you need to change something, not via politics. The world is so fucked up because we don't care enough for each other. You can spend the whole day whitewashing the modern state, it's still a rotten piece of shit, a heartless monster of pressure and cruelty.
#Smusi update: I have to say that my motivation to run Smusi has declined a lot. in the beginning it was meant as a local platform to help local musicians to meet etc. but it didn't work and the local people stopped posting. then I tried making it international, this worked much better and it has grown quite a bit. but since the people are from all over the world it's more like everyone is doing their own thing and the intended social impact is almost zero. 1/2
To record tracks individually (like first guitar, then voice etc.) is the very reason why a record does not reflect the full potential of a song. Only when people are actually playing live and it is recorded together the full emotion is present. I don't think many labels/producers have understood this and that's why we have so much shallow music (even when the material would be good).
Experience with my first band (called "Bridgemate"): Threw one person out because of too much negativity, putting people down (including me). Apart from that we have good people and the rehearsals are great. It's so important to have good people. I value this even more than ability. People get better over time musically, but a bad character is usually not going to improve.
